Today

Is all that matters.

The past is gone,

The future is yet to occur.

Today, this moment,

Is your true reality.

All else exists only

In your mind.

Dear One, it is time to practice living only in the present. For the present is all that exists. This moment, now. For in this moment you can heal the mistakes of the past with forgiveness and compassion. And you can set the scene for the future with love, strength and power.

Remember that you are co-creator with the Source. You have created the world you see around you. This is not to admonish or judge you. It is a universal truth. Your own creation began with a spark of light from the Source. This means you are a living extension of the Divine. And with that, you have the ability to create the world in which you live.

Pain is inevitable during this human existence. Either physical, emotional or spiritual, pain will occur during the course of your lifetime. But suffering is an experience that can be controlled by your state of mind. There are many incarnated souls who live lives that are difficult and challenging. And yet, they rise from their beds with a smile and return at day’s end with gratitude on their lips. How is this possible?

They are the souls who understand that the level of suffering in their lives depends on how they view their world. Anger, blame and fear do not linger in their minds. They experience life in the moment, for the present moment is all that matters. And so, we ask, how do you live this moment of time during your day?

Remember that you have the power to change how you see your relationships with others. You have the power to walk this day in fear or in love. And you have the power to set the tone for the next moment by how you view this current moment.

This takes practice as many of you have become so accustomed to the belief that life should move forward in a certain way, down a certain path. But how do you know this is the most beneficial path for all when you have such a limited view of the world? How do you know what is best for others when you view each other with blinders on, making assumptions about them without really ‘knowing’ them?

Dear One, you forget that all are divine. Everyone you meet, everything you see has the spark of divinity within. All were created by the Oneness, either directly as you were, or through you, as you continue the arc of creation through your own divinity.

You have the power to change how you view your surroundings, how you interact with those around you. Can you allow all in your path to teach you how to see the divine in your world? Instead of seeing a world of fear and discord and strife, can you take a step back and ask yourself why you judge someone as you do?

In order to change this world, you must be willing to change how you perceive it. That is not to say that you should ignore the suffering of others. Instead, hold them in higher vibration. See them not with pity which does not serve them, but with strength in order to lift them up.

See those whose actions cause strife and pain, see them as troubled souls who have lost their path to the light. Send them love, hold them in love while taking actions to alleviate the pain of others. For remember that sending angry, negative thoughts to one person in truth sends those same thoughts out to all of the world, all of existence.

Remember, too, that the actions of some may be the exact impetus to inspire others to greatness. All have their gifts to offer to this world, often without realizing the impact of their actions.  And many gifts cannot be seen as such due to the emotions of the moment. Take time to reflect upon this truth.

This is not an easy path for those who have acclimated to living in a world of fear. But it is possible. And you have help awaiting in the wings. All you need do is ask for it and it shall be delivered to you in a way most acceptable to you.

Dear One, the moment is now. The power exists in this very moment. Hold it in gratitude for the opportunities for growth which lie before you. It begins with you making the choice to change how you move through your world. It begins today.

Hold your head high

And see the beauty that surrounds you.

Offer gratitude for the abundance

Of opportunities for love.

And take the first step of empowerment.

It begins with you, Dear One.

Dearest One With All of Thee.
