Responsibililty

Today we would like to speak to you on the subject of responsibility. As human beings we know you have many obligations that you must fulfill in order to keep your life running smoothly. You must pay your bills, answer your emails, take care of your children, pets, and aging parents, go to work, cook your meals, exercise your bodies, etc. And while we honor these human duties, dear friends, and certainly support you in fulfilling them, we hold a very different perspective on the meaning of responsibility.

In our world, responsibility is your ability to respond to the present moment. If you are present to the moment at hand then your hearts will guide you always to do what must need to be done in the most joyful and efficient manner. If you take a few moments to check in with and be aware of your own heart, you will know what you want to do in each moment. You will know who you feel like calling, which emails you feel like answering, whether it is a productive time to pay the bills, etc. You will be guided to take care of your dependents in a way that is balanced and loving to yourself as well. In our definition of responsibility, you must be able to respond to your own heart first, and in so doing, you will be able to maintain all your human responsibilities as well.

Evaluate your human responsibilities, dear ones, rather than assuming they are all necessary. Of course we want you to honor the systems in which you incarnated, pay the bills, care for your loved ones, etc., however we do not want you to sacrifice your own soul in the process. And if you truly are present to your hearts in each moment, you will not only avoid sacrificing your soul, you will find that by including your spirit in each moment, trusting it, honoring it and listening to its guidance, you are indeed honoring of your human necessities as well.

Change your life once choice at a time

You have the opportunity to change your lives one choice at a time. With each and every thing you say you can choose to speak in a loving manner or one that is less than loving. With each and every activity you perform, you can perform it in a conscious and loving manner or in a manner that is rushed or unloving. With every thought you think, you can choose to think more lovingly or to perceive the world through the eyes of anger and victimhood.

We are not saying it is always easy to choose love for the world has programmed you to protect yourself, to feel insecure, to rush through your days and get things done, and to feel that you must have pain to have gain. Far from this dear ones, we would say that love is the greatest protection. You are secure in God's love. The more you are present the more you can achieve without rushing, and that the less you choose pain the more you will gain what is of deep and lasting satisfaction.

Unlearning old habits takes time but we urge you to take ten minutes, an hour, or perhaps a day to attempt to infuse every thought, word, and deed with love. Although as with most habits, it may take time and effort to move into this new reality, the rewards are rich, long lasting, and deep.

Speak to yourself with Love

Today we wish to speak to you on the subject of communication, but not in the traditional sense. Rather we wish to talk about how you speak to yourself, for indeed dear ones, you are in constant communication with every aspect of your being.

You communicate with your bodies on a daily basis. Are you being kind to your bodies? Are you telling them each and every day how much you love and appreciate them? Can you ask your body to trust you and to let you know its needs in a kind and gentle way? And if something in your body is in pain dear ones, rather than criticizing it or casting it aside, talk to it every so gently and ask it to guide you in its healing. Would you heal more quickly if criticized, or if given unconditional love? Your body has awareness dear ones and it senses the energy you direct towards it, be it loving or otherwise. Be gentle with your bodies. They do their best to provide beautiful housing for you soul.

You communicate with your own mind constantly as well. Are you kind to yourself? Do you berate yourselves, or can you instead learn to speak words of love to yourself. "Dear Self, well you could have done better earlier today but we learned! Good job! I'm proud of you dear Self." Have you ever stopped to consider who is talking to whom within your own mind? Dear ones there are so many aspects of your being. There is your truth - the love and the kindness and the compassion that you are. There is your inner child who worries about "doing the right thing," "being acknowledged," "being abandoned or rejected." There is your true child, the playful spirit of innocence, passion, and joy within you. There are countless programs that you have integrated into your psyche that have been given to you by others. So who do you want to listen to within yourself dear friends? Your loving soul and your true, passionate, and innocent child within would be our recommendations.

Stop the self criticism, the self judgment, the self deprecation - for these are all learned lies and it would be our deepest dream that you would make an effort to see past them and to see how beautiful you truly are, inside and out. For in God's eyes, and our eyes, you are always and forever more perfect. You are simply learning.

Watch how you speak to all aspects of yourself this week. Apologize to yourself if you have been less than kind and make a resolve to treat your own body, mind, emotions, and soul as if you the love of God itself... for indeed, dear ones, you truly are.

Your hearts can be at peace

Although your world is in a chaotic state dear friends, your hearts can be at peace, for God's love is constant, no matter what human kind is creating. And each one of you has access to this love and peace at every moment of your lifes. The reality you experience will be the one you choose to focus upon. In every circumstance, assume you are loved. In every situation assume there is a purpose. You do not always have to know the purpose. You do not always have to figure out why you are where you are. You only have to embrace the situation, assume there is some good behind it and in this mindset, you will be seeing the universe as a friendly place, as a place wherein each and every soul upon your planet earth, albeit often awkwardly, is searching for love.

When something unexpected happens, try to assume the best instead of the worst. When you do something you would rather not have done, or don't do something you feel you should have, assume that your soul had a reason, if only to learn more about who you really are.

When you look for the good in the world, you see more good. When you acknowledge what is good within yourself the world will too.

Dear ones, God's love is ever present. No matter what your world is doing, no matter what chaos humankind chooses to create, this remains the eternal and most deeply truthful reality. Focus upon this. Assume this in your lives. Assume that love lies beneath it all. And in this reality, dear ones, you will find peace, live in joy, and truly be "in the world, but not of it."
