Open to life

Life wants to flow through you dear ones. Life offers you a tantalizing buffet of adventures! Life wants to say "Here I am! Try me!" Taste! Look! Listen! Life is nothing more than a myriad of expressions of God's love waiting to be experience. Life is not about survival. Life is about experiencing love in an infinite number of ways. Life is about knowing the various faces and aspects of God. Life is an adventure of discovering more about who you are each and every day. And dear ones, this discovery is not solely a mental exercise - it is an exercise of opening up to life, tasting life, experiencing life, and seeing what parts of life resonate with you and which do not.

Start a conversation with a stranger and see what you learn about life or yourself. Try a new activity that you are drawn to and experience new joys in your life. See if you can learn why another person thinks differently than you. Open your mind up about new ways you might create income in your life by doing what you love, or simply ways to do more of what you love. Remember what you loved in childhood and see if you can't find ways to explore that energy in your adult life now.

The secret to remaining young at heart, dear ones, is being open to life. If you are open to trying new things, exploring new perspectives, and indeed discovering more and more about you who are every day then the energy of God's love is allowed to flow through your life. You'll want to remain on earth and enjoy its pleasures! Your body will want to adjust to allow you these joys. You'll feel inspired and revitalized. How do you know what gives you joy unless you choose to explore the possibilities life offers?

It costs nothing to read a new book. It is so simple to try a new food. It is freeing in so many ways to have a conversation with someone you disagree with in order to learn how they think. It is inspiring to brainstorm about how your talents might be turned into a business. Who says you can't do these things dear ones? God says you can. God invites you to be open to life. God invites you to think "outside the boxes" that were defined for you during your upbringing. Why can't you love someone who has hurt you? That power exists inside of you, and it certainly feels better than upset! Why can't you make money doing something you love? Why can't you try something that you think "isn't you?" Why not... Ask yourself in the upcoming days. Why can't I branch out a bit in my life and take a chance and try to be more open to life? Try opening up to life dear ones, for in so doing, you will learn so much more about who you are, what gives you joy, and what you'd rather avoid. In doing so, you will learn you are safe, loved, and not alone in this world. Opening to life is really opening to love.
