Choose kindness

As you go about your days and the summer comes to a close remember that that there are seasons in life, seasons upon your earth, seasons in the cycles of spiritual evolution and even seasons within your own bodies. Your energy upon the earth is starting to move once again, slowly and surely with great turmoil and chaos as witnessed by the many natural disasters. Even your mother earth has felt a bit stagnant this year. She too longs for change. She longs for her children to bridge the gaps between themselves and to come together in love. And so, as she awakens dear ones, you witness earth changes that cause people to drop their differences, to reorganize priorities and to reach out to one another with love and compassion. Whether or not you are involved in the hurricanes, earthquakes, and floods, each one of you can feel the urge within yourself for movement, growth, change, and ultimately a more loving reality.

Choose love, choose kindness, choose to remember that the greatest priority in life is not rushing around to complete the days tasks and errands but to slow down and do the things you must do with kindness - kindness towards yourself first, and kindness towards others as well. If you accomplish your tasks but do so without love and kindness - to yourself, to the other drivers on the road, to your family, the clerks in the stores, etc... - then these accomplishes mean little in the realm of spirit. If however, you manage to smile at the clerk in the store, be courteous on the road no matter what others are doing, and to listen to your friends and family when something is on their mind, even finding a few minutes to sit, breathe, and receive God's love, then my dear friends, your days will go more smoothly, you will accomplish the tasks that truly matter, and your soul will feel satisfied. Happiness in life is never truly achieved by reaching the goals you set for yourselves, for that happiness is fleeting, but rather happiness involves making loving choices, one moment, one day at a time - this will give you a lifetime of fulfillment.
