You are free to love

Celebrate your freedom dear ones, for you are free to love and free to choose how to perceive every single situation in your life. You may not feel free at times. Your conditioning and beliefs may bias you to perceive a situation as negative or disagreeable, when in fact it just is what it is. When you see an angry child for example, many of you would have compassion. Some of you would privately giggle at the seriousness of their tantrum. Some of you would come unglued and yell back. Some of you would walk away in disgust. Some of you would pick them up, hug them, and then if all else failed firmly walk them to their room for some time to calm down. And each of these responses is a choice, although you ma not know it at the time. Each of these responses shows you how you feel about your own upsets, angers , and frustrations in life. Do you take your own anger so seriously that it disturbs you, or do you simply say, "Oh my, I'm so upset! Let me give myself some love, cool down, and then figure out what to do about this situation." For it is how you treat yourself that dictates how you will react to others.

Suppose you find yourself in the middle of the month without any certainty that you will be able to pay the bills at the end of the month. Again, you have choices in terms of how you will perceive the situation. You are free! Some of you will say, "That's alright, I always manage to come out alright. God is with me." Some of you will frantically do your balance sheets in an effort to feel in control. Some of you will get angry and throw tantrums. Some of you will fret and worry in spite of knowing everything turns out ok each month. Again, each reaction tells you a lot about yourself. Do you have faith? What did you learn about responsibility?

Look at each life situation you find yourself in dear ones. Look at your reactions to it. What can you learn about yourself? Can you choose to find more faith, more love, and more true responsibility - the ability to respond with kindness and peace? If you can dear ones, you will find that things you once considered to be challenges are not so challenging. Situations you once considered to be upsetting, simply exist. The world can go on with its tougher lessons, but you can choose peace. You can choose prosperity of the heart. You can choose, always and forevermore, the truth of your loving hearts.
