Be present

Take a breath, even in your most challenging moments, and remember who you are. No matter what is occurring you are eternal souls. No matter what challenges you face, you are connected to the source of all life, and all abundance. No matter what pains you feel, these are simply areas where you don't remember God's love. No matter what dear ones, you will end up in the loving arms of your creator once you learn to accept this truth.

There are times when it seems life is unbearably challenging. There are times when life is overwhelming. There are time when you are not sure how you will handle all the things you must accomplish. Dear ones, when you find yourself in one of these moments, breathe, relax, talk to God and invite Him into even the most difficult spaces in your lives. Then ask yourself, what must I deal with right now, in this moment. Being present, you are more effective, more attuned to guidance, more able to deal with the task at hand.

There are times when your life is unbelievably beautiful and joyful. There are times when you don't know how you have managed to create such bliss. These are the times to sit, breathe, and thank God for the blessings. Invite God to continue giving His gifts to you, and don't let your mind wander out to the future and wonder how long or if the joy will last. Accept it, receive it, breathe it in. Be one with it now.

Living in the present is the only way you can ever truly 'deal with' or 'enjoy' life. Allowing your mind to wander to the past, except to harvest its lessons, is a waste of time. Allowing your mind to wander to the future, except to intend the next creation, is also a way of distracting yourself from the moment. Whether you are in challenge or in joy, the moment you have now is the one to embrace. You will more quickly deal with your challenges, and more deeply enjoy your joys.

Be present. That is where the present of God's love is found most fully.
