Pause - don't miss your life

Pause dear friends, throughout your day, to appreciate the miracles all around you. So many of you create unnecessary stress and worry, always looking forward to the future with concern. Will I get my bills paid? Will I be able to go on vacation? Will my car break down? Will my children grow into their full potential? Will I be well? So many worries, and so many concerns rob you of life, dear ones. While we certainly appreciate the human need to make plans and to structure your days, we also realize that life itself happens one moment at a time, and if you are always worrying about the future or wishing you were in some other situation, you will miss the joy and the opportunity that is right in front of you, right now.

If you worry about feeding your children by dinnertime, you will miss feeding their souls by being present with them here and now.

If you worry about paying your bills, you will miss the opportunities and the guidance that is available each moment - the very opportunities and guidance that will help you pay them more easily.

If you worry about your health, dear ones, you can worry yourself sick. Instead focus on what is well within you and in o doing, amplify your well being.

If you worry about others, you support their problems. Instead focus on their soul's light and truth and in so doing, be part of the solution.

So many of you were taught, erroneously, that worry indicates care. In a sense, it is one way to show you care. However, there are more evolved ways to care about yourselves and others that allow you to create what you want rather than inviting to you what you fear. Instead of hurry and worry, slow down, breathe, be present to life around you now. Slow down, breathe, and notice your own thoughts and feelings. Slow down, breathe, and truly be with life around you. In this space of no worry, just faith, and true presence, you will find the gifts that are already and always there with you - inside of you, around you, and coming through the presence of others in your lives.

Don't hurry and worry so much that you miss the moments of your lives dear ones. Eventually all you worry about will come to pass. The question is only this - will you choose to enjoy the journey? Life is short even if you live over a hundred years. It is a precious gift. Be present to it, and you will enjoy it and treasure it so much more thoroughly. This is how one lives a life of riches beyond compare.
