Guided assistance

Everything in your world dear friends is impermanent, and yet your souls are eternal. So as you watch the news, understand that when someone dies in what you see as a terrible disaster, within seconds, they are in the loving arms of their angels, loved ones, and the light and love of God. Many of you know this and yet you wonder why other souls would choose to remain on earth in spite of such tragedy. Many, although unaware, are the brave volunteers who remain to inspire compassion, to help their fellow man, to be the light in the darkness. Many are there to "teach" the world - as you witness their suffering, you are inspired to release complaints and feel grateful for all you do have.

Some of you are called to assist in more tangible ways. Some of you are called to assist energetically and through prayer. Some of you are called to insist by staying out of the chaos and being beacons of peace and joy here upon the earth. If you pray sincerely to know your place in the world, God will always guide you in answer to that prayer. For who you are being in any given moment is far more important than what you are doing. If you assist others from a sense of duty rather than a sense of joy, far better to stay at home. If you help and assist family members, but resent having to do so, you are creating the internal conflicts within your own heart that eventually must be released in your own tidal waves of emotion and your own private shifting of the "plates" within.

If however, you allow yourself joy, seek joy, be joy... If you look at life from a grateful heart and point of view, then you will see where you do indeed have abundance already! And when you feel abundant in any area of life there is a natural tendency to want to share. Do you love your home? Then dear ones, enjoy it, give thanks for it, let the light you feel within it and the abundance you feel there in radiate out to a world that feels such lack. Do you enjoy cooking? If so share from your bountiful talents. Are you a good listener? Then when you feel ready, listen to everyone's perspectives with equality and give the world the gift of an energy that lovingly allows all things to "be". Are you strong? Lift something for a friend who is not. Dear ones the gifts you give the world are not always obvious, not always tangible, not always "big" in the sense of human scale, and yet when you find your abundance, feel it, and share from that bounty, then you give the world the gift of yourself - the precious gift of God's love working through you in human form. This is the greatest gift of all.
