You are never stuck

As you proceed through your days dear friends remember that the way you choose to look at your life and your world will create your experience of reality. The world is the world. Life is life. People are going to be who they are. Will you be the ones searching for the light within these situations and seeing the truth of God behind all things, or will you succumb to the illusion that darkness has the upper hand? While it is true that your economies are down, your world is in turmoil and strife, and earth herself is going through massive changes, dear ones, God is still behind all things, ever present with his love.

You can live in fear of the economy or you can delight in the simple pleasures it forces you to embrace. You can live in fear of earth changes or you can celebrate the fact that all of you are where you are supposed to be based on the lessons you chose to embrace and the gifts you chose to share. You can live in despondancy, feeling alone and unloved, or you can reach out and connect with others who feel the same - and in so doing, raise yourself up into the light.

While it is true that a great many of you feel 'stuck' at this time, you are never truly stuck. Your lives are in a bit of slow motion and soft focus now. It is not a time to push yourselves too hard, or to stress and strain over forcing new projects to completion. It is a time when your hearts yearn for more and yet if you are not patient, allowing God's plan to unfold in your lives, you can easiliy succumb to frustration. It is time to slow down, go within, and create from the inside out. Those who are willing to do this - to spend the time in silent contemplation, pray, visualization, and affirmation of truth, acting when guided and motivated to do so - will experience and enjoy miracles unfolding. Those who insist on forcing themselves and others to do things that feel uninspired, well dear ones, you will be uninspired.

God cares about you. God is slowing you down so your dreams can speed up. Doing things the worlds way is one way to live your life. But you can be 'in the world and yet not of it' by allowing God to work in your life and your heart. Slow down dear friends, choose to see the light and the gifts that are always present in your lives. Use gratitude as a key to truly seeing the streams of abundance that you are and can tap into. There is always love available. There is always guidance available. When you slow down you will see it more clearly and allow your lives to rest in God's grace.
