What do you choose today?

What of life? How do you spend your day, the gift of time you have been given? It matters not how many activities you do. What matters is how you do them. With dread, trepidation, complaints? Or with love and joy? It is your choice on how you live your life, how your day begins and ends.

Can you welcome in the light from the first star that appears before you in the sky? Can you feel the love that pulses from that light? And can you share that love you have just received with those around you? You can choose how your day begins and ends. Great feats need not be accomplished every day. Simple acts of kindness offered with genuine compassion and love. We have stated before that what you put out surrounds you as you move through your day. So, do you surround yourself with positive or negative energy? It is your choice.

You use the expression, a glass half empty or half full. What do you say of the glass you have been given for this day? Can you see the gifts that lay before you on your path? Or do you see only rocks to stumble upon as you move forward? The power of the creation of your life lies within you, not with others, but with you. How do you choose to use that power? Your effect on the world, even in your daily ‘mundane’ lives, as some of you say, is powerful. Each moment is never to be present again in that exact way. And so we ask, how will you use that gift today? Sacred moments. Sacred interactions. Every day.

Start small. Be gentle with yourself. And as it gets easier for you to move with love rather than fear, see the effects around you. During the day notice how often you see or say something in a negative way. Turn those actions around to the exact opposite and watch how your life changes. We know this is not an easy task for those who have lived their entire lives surrounded by fear. But what we say to you is that it IS possible, one step at a time. Be observant, but not judgmental, of yourself. Gently encourage yourself to change the way you walk through this world. And soon, you will no longer be walking through your day, but dancing, with joy, for the opportunities given to you. To gently grow. To change. To come into your full being as an expression of love. This is who you truly are.

The key is with you. The power is with you. To have a negative or a positive experience. Choose to dance, to fly. To relish every moment of your day. Accept this gift with open arms and an open heart and see how your world changes. We will always be here behind you. To catch you when you stumble, to gently set you back upon your feet. To take your hand, if necessary, and gently guide you forward. You are never, ever alone.

Open the gates of love that have been dammed up for so long within your hearts. Allow that love to flow gently and completely from you into the world around you. Can you see the love already flowing out from others? Can you see it being taken in by those who truly need it at this time? Give and take. For there is abundance for all. No one is lacking. No one is forgotten. No matter what you think, even in your darkest hours, you are never alone.

    Here is the dilemma for some Christians, their is a personal responsibility for ones happiness and satisfaction. Their is also a responsibility of God through his Son Jesus to forgive me for sin, which he accomplished on the cross. I must now confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that Jesus was raised from the dead, so that I may be saved from the terror that will come to all mankind.

      I respect you for your beliefs and your faith, Roger. However, all the messages and writings I’ve ever received have spoken ONLY of love, non-judgement, compassion, forgiveness and hope. For that reason, I personally choose love over fear in all aspects of my life. Not always easy, but something I strive for every day.
