Love is the greatest healer

The world needs your light dear ones. So many of you are so worried about taking care of everyone else and yet the best way you can care for the world and for those you love is to stand in a truth that shines brightly - namely that God loves each and every one of you. If you want to help someone who is suffering, rather than bailing them out as so many of you are apt to do, love them, uplift them, express faith in them, encourage their dreams, be there as a compassionate listener when you can. Far better for you to stand in the light of God's love than to get drawn into the upsets and frustrations of the world. Far better for you to be a shining example of faith in God's abundance rather than to succumb to the darkness and illusion of lack. Far better to embrace this life and this earth as the school that it is, learning your lessons willingly and moving through them quickly, rather than resisting and therefore creating greater struggle.

Life is short dear ones. It is a privilege to be upon the earth. There are so many souls in the heavens wishing to learn in this very prestigious school you call earth. And yet it is, without question, the toughest school in the universe. There is only one lesson, and that is to embrace and trust in the love of God that you are made of. If you can do this, you would all love and respect yourselves. You would be able to allow others to be where they are at, without judgment and comparison. You would relinquish the need to save, fix, argue, and judge, and you would simply be shining examples of this love.

God is working in all lives. Each soul going through challenge is simply being guided to grow in directions that God knows will ultimately assist in their soul's greatest joy. Change is never easy. Loss can be unthinkably hard. And yet dear ones, the greatest flowers grow out of the most composted soil, and the greatest lives often grow out of the greatest challenge.

If you want to truly help another, pray and check in with your own heart. What feels like a joy to do and give, rather than a burden? What words can you use that are loving, compassionate, and acknowledge the others' perspectives as well as your own. It is not your job to educate another if they do not ask for this. It is not your job to assist them unless God puts it in your heart with a joyful desire to do so. God directs all assistance, all true help, and all real solutions. The human ego comes up with the rest.

Instead of worrying about others, be the love of God to the best of your ability. Love and accept others' perspectives, even if they are uncomfortable to you, for they are exactly what that person needs to grow at this time. Do your best to refrain from judging and comparing yourselves for each one of you is beautiful, unique, and precious to God. Each one of you is exactly where you need to be to allow God to work in your lives. Love others through their challenges rather than judging or criticizing them. This does not mean you have to compromise who you are or what you want to do, but you can always find love and prayer in your heart, regardless of the course of action/inaction that you choose.

Love yourself as well through your own challenges rather than judging or criticizing yourselves. Challenge does not indicate failure. It is, rather, simply an intense course of study.

Love is the greatest healer, the most compassionate way to act, and the only true lesson in this school called earth.
