For what do you yearn?

Is it a memory of the past?

Of interactions long gone?

What is the true reason for these cravings?

Dear One, so many of you look so longingly at your past, wishing you could be there once again. You crave the way you felt or the interactions you once had. Your memories are filled with thoughts of times better than those existing for you now.

Why does your life feel so different today? What has changed so much that you yearn for something from your past? Is your present so difficult? Or have your perceptions of your life been skewed by selective memories altered over time?

Dear One, do not choose to live in the past when the present is here filled with potential and opportunities for love and change. There is impermanence to everything here in this physical world. For without that impermanence, change would not be possible.

Look to the flowers in spring emerging after a long winter. They are here for a short time before they once again fade into a memory of beauty realized. But in that short time, they lifted spirits, they gave forth nectar, they provided seeds for abundance for the next season.

Everything that occurs in your life provides seeds for abundance for the next chapter. The old cycle must end to provide for the new cycle. And during that transition, there is much growth, much strength built, with time for rest before the next cycle begins.

Can you embrace impermanence rather than long for what was? Can you love the entire cycle from beginning to end with the understanding that this is how you grow? And can you love more fully knowing that what you love may be gone tomorrow?

You enter each new cycle with more knowledge, more strength, more tools than you had in the previous cycle. Much of what you crave from the past will no longer serve you today; for you have grown exponentially over the course of your life.

Dear One, do not fear, do not judge what lies before you at this moment. Your life is unfolding as it should and if transitions are occurring, it is because you are being guided into the next chapter of your life. Have no regrets. Make no comparisons. For the new day dawning has potential for greatness and you, Dear One, are ready to rise to your potential.

Just as memories of the past may be clouded with emotion or longing, so too your self- image. You may not see your true greatness and how much you have grown. But we can see you clearly in all of your brilliance and oh how you shine!

Review your past with gratitude for what it has given you, for leading you to the present moment.

View your present as the opportunity it truly is to grow and love; to use the gifts you have been given.

Allow the future to unfold as it will. Worry not about outcome. For no matter what that outcome may be, in truth it will be greater than you can imagine.

Live in the present in all of its beauty.

Embrace the impermanence of your life knowing that this is how change and opportunity occur.

And call upon us when you need the comfort of our embrace.

For this we will gladly give to you.

Always.
