Look for the light

In any situation in life dear ones you can look to the sun or focus on the storms. The sun is always there, even when hiding behind the clouds. So too, whether you look for the dark or look to the light, the light is always there. Why not, dear friends, focus on the light?

There is always something good happening in your lives even when you can't quite see it. Search for the good dear friends. Seek it out. Pretend you are a spiritual detective searching for little glimmers of light amidst the dark, love amidst fears, joy amidst sadness. As you do so, the sunshine of truth and love behind all things will begin to burn the clouds of doubt, fear, sadness, and anger away.

Take death, for example. When someone you love dies, it is beyond measure, sad for you are human beings and you miss the physicality of your loved ones, And yet, there is a great outpouring of love that occurs during such occasions as well. There are memories that surface, wounds that are healed, misdeeds that are forgiven. In the heavens there is great celebration for the soul that has returned home. Even in the midst of life's most unthinkable pain, there is love. This is how you get through grief dear friends - to realize that grief is just a painful part of a deeper and more amazing eternal love. Focus on the love. Focus on your love for the departed soul, and focus on their love for you, and this will be the sunshine that helps to burn the clouds of sadness away.

Take fear for example. So many of you live in a state of financial fear. You fear you will lose what you have worked so hard to earn. You fear you will fail your loved ones. You fear the unknown. So where is the love? Well dear friends you love yourselves enough to want to keep what you have earned. Acknowledge that. Ask God for help. You love your loved ones enough to want to care for them. Entrust them to God's care too with your prayers. You want good for yourself in the future. Focus on it and thereby create it and then the future will not be so 'unknown' after all because it will be unfolding according to your heart's design.

Dear ones, in all things, search for the love, for in focusing upon this love - the love that is ever present and unending - you focus on truth. In so doing you too will begin to burn away the clouds and the storms of sadness, fear, and doubt, and you will witness the miracles that can occur when you live in this state of well being.
