Everything is in right order

Rest assured knowing that everything in your life is in right order. Everything is in right timing. Truly dear ones we watch you rushing about and know that if you only knew the truth of your place in eternity, you would slow down a bit and enjoy the journey. Nothing is more important than the quality of this moment. Nothing is more important than whether or not you are adding love to this moment or running from it.

Are you conscious of how your body feels right now? Take a moment. Become aware of your body. Are you hot, cold, in need of stretching, in need of touch, in need of food? Ask your body right now, "Body, what do you need in this moment?" Then make a deal, that at your earliest convenience you will give your body what it needs. Your physical vehicle is the starting point for living in the present moment. If you are aware of its needs, you can start to become aware of so much more.

Ask your heart now, "Heart, what do you need in this moment, and how can I give this to you?" We are not talking now about your physical heart, but rather your sacred heart, the energy of your spirit, the energy of God's love that lives within you. The answer may surprise you. The answer may be remarkably simple. Your spirit is not as complex dear ones as you think. It always wants to express or experience that love in some fashion in any given moment. Your minds come up with remarkable machinations as to how you should move yourself through life in order to express or experience that love, but your hearts will always give you the simplest answer.

If you were able to move through life in this fashion, moment by moment, being aware of the needs of your body and spirit, then dear ones, you would move through life as much of the natural world does - with thought being used as a tool rather than as a torment, with a trust in the movements within you, guided with ease and grace, moving naturally towards that which uplifts and 'feeds' you and moving away from that which does not. You would do so without self-judgment, without the need to judge others, and with simple grace. Try it for a few hours. Try just living your life with awareness of what it is you need now, and now, and now... and soon dear ones, you won't even need to ask the questions for you will have made room to allow the answers to arise naturally from within. Your bodies and souls are programmed to seek and express love in your daily moments. You have learned to block these simple truths, but with a bit of practice you can become adept once again at feeling your internal guidance and acting upon it.

The entire universe is in cooperation

Take a breath dear ones for everything is in right order. There is a grand dance being orchestrated in the universe by nothing less than the loving Divine Presence that animates all of creation. If you can imagine, the universe is like a giant body, with every element, every being, every little piece of creation designed to act and respond in cooperation with one another. The energy and love that flows between you and all creation is like a giant nervous system. If you cut your finger, the entire body responds immediately and begins immediately to heal the cut. In a healthy body, as cancer cells do not find a hospitable environment in which to grow.

If any part of the universe is in need, the entire universe works in cooperation to respond with assistance. When you are in need, instead of falling into fear, tell yourself the Truth! "God loves me! I don't know what to do but the power that made the universe, and lives within me does. I will receive help and guidance at the right time and the right way." Then get on with your day. In this fashion you do not obstruct the love that is flowing towards you in answer to your call.

If any part of the universe attempts to harm the whole, the universe attempts to withdraw support from it in a loving fashion. Decay in the forest stops when the dead tree has been turned to mulch. Cancer cells cannot grow in a healthy body in which circulation flows freely. Angry people cannot harm you if you refuse to take in and feed their upsets. So when you encounter such negativity remind yourself, I do not have to dance with this! I can transform it with my love. You can say to a cancer, "Thank you for teaching me or my loved one. Thank you for showing where something was eating at me. I now choose to learn and heal and I no longer support your being!" Sit with your ailments dear ones, and thank them for they are your teachers. You can truly love them out of existence.

Likewise refuse to feed anger. Fires burn only when you throw on more fuel. Anger is simply meant to be a force that reminds you to create. It festers only when you feel powerless. If another aims their anger at you, can you choose not to throw a log on that fire. Can you simply withdraw, or say, "I'm sorry you are angry," or if you can, present them with kindness? If you are jealous, can you say, "Wow. Amazing! My jealousy is teaching me that a part of me is coming to life! I want more for myself. Thank you for reminding me that I am worthy of what I want, and that I have the power to create." Negativity cannot take root within and possess you unless you feed it either consciously or otherwise. Even those energies have their place in the universe and are part of the greater good. However, you can love them and learn from them, and thus choose not to suffer from them.

The power that constantly creates the universe wants love to flow freely through all of creation. You are a valuable part of that creation! You contain the power, presence, and love of God within you! You are cared for. You are loved. You are heard and acknowledged in the heavens. Can you embrace this? Can you trust that your needs will be met, that you need not engage in the negativity of the world, but rather when presented with it, you can transform it with love. Thus, dear ones, you become the alchemists that take the dense leaden energies of life and turn them into gold.

Look for all that is good

Sing with celebration dear ones for you earth is growing and evolving and you are too. You are becoming clearer about what it is you want in your life. You are becoming more convinced that you too are deserving of God's love. You are starting to realize that you are powerful creators and so many of you upon the earth are coming together in love and prayer, trying to create a more kind reality. You see otherwise on your news, but in the heavens we see inside human hearts. We see the kindness that is rising up within so many. We see both the frustrations and pains, but also the deep desire for greater cooperation and greater love.

So when you look at the world, or even at your own lives and begin to feel weary, take a moment, and look for all that is good. It is all too easy to see what is not working. Humanity trains you to look for the flaws in life, in yourselves, and one another. But who has trained you dear ones to look for the good. Can you see the gentle clerk at the grocery store who gives the very impatient soul in front of you a bit of kindness and humor? Can you look for the most gorgeous tomato in the bins and give thanks for the miracle of having it in front of you? The entire eco-system of your planet worked to grow this one jewel and so many souls were involved in its care and transport. Can you fathom the miraculous love and cooperation involved just so you can eat one ripe tomato?

Can you see the birds in the sky in their miracle of flight and song. There is so much good! Can you look in the mirror and see the miracle of your own skin, wrinkles and all. Can you fathom the complex interactions that occur in your body every day just to give your soul this magnificent vehicle. How could you ever criticize your wrinkles, or even your little emotional wrinkles, for they are simply signs of your growth, notches in your belt, as you would say, for every little smile, every little frown that occurred as you wished for more love, every tear cried in a desire for more compassion.

Dear ones you are beautiful to us! You are miraculous! You are filled with goodness, and yes we know you get weary. You get sad. You get angry and sometimes even jealous or hateful, but in truth we look beneath these things and we find and see the love that is trying to surface in your hearts. Likewise we look at all the movements on earth, even those that are most ungraceful and heinous in human terms, and we nurture and support only the tiny spark of love beneath them all. We never condone unkindness in any form. We never condone violence, and yet we know all souls, all movements, all life indeed is seeking to know God's love, however gracefully or not.

Look for the good in your life, in your world, in your own eyes dear ones. Seek out what is there to be celebrated every day, no matter how small. You are breathing! You are alive! So many in the heavens wait with great anticipation for a life on earth. You are eating meals that nourish you. So many are starving. There are good souls all around you. Many are quiet. Many are working diligently in their own lives without even realizing how beautiful they are. Take the time to honor yourself, and to honor others around you. Take the time to appreciate all that is good. We are not asking you to ignore injustice and all that is wrong. If you feel called to speak up about these things, do so with love. However, dear ones, the more you nurture and support and look for all that is beautiful and good in your self, in others, and in your world, the more you will experience a loving reality in your daily lives.

Love is not martyrdom

There is a mistaken notion upon your planet that being a loving person means you will make everyone happy, meet everyone's needs, listen to everyone's desires, and be "nice" even if that means putting your own feelings aside, ignoring your own needs, or being completely inauthentic. In reality dear ones, being a loving person simply means acknowledging that everyone has a right to be, exactly as they are, right now, right here, upon your planet earth.

That includes you.

Being a loving person means you will first look inside yourself in any given interaction and say to yourself, "What is my honest response to this person in front of me, and what is the most loving way to communicate, or the most loving action I can take... that include me?" This is new thinking for most of you. Most of you become defensive when you move away from another because you do not feel ok doing so. Many of you will put up with all manner of ill behaviors because you were not taught it is ok to remove yourself from unkind conditions. So many of you, because you love so deeply, will sacrifice yourselves to the point of exhaustion and resentment in an attempt to save and fix others.

This martyrdom, dear ones, does indeed spring from love, but is not the highest form of it. God's love says, "I create you all as magnificent beings. I live and breathe within you. I gave you free will so you can know my love or you can, if you insist, feel separate from it. I will not force you. I will allow you to come to this understanding in your own time. I will exist in a state of love and joy and patiently wait for you to come to know my presence within you." If God, dear ones, who is the life and breath within you, allows beings on earth to continue in their illusions, so must you. God whispers words of love and encouragement in the hearts of all beings, and so can you, but if souls wish to continue in behaviors of misunderstanding and separation, grant them their journey, and simply withdraw your energies. Focus your sights instead upon the light.

You were meant to recognize the light within all beings. You were meant to allow others the dance they choose upon the earth. However, you were also meant to choose your own dance, your own dance partners, your own steps, and your own path. Rather than dancing to another's tune, falling into another's energy, or giving others the authority over your own life, dance to your own beat, stay in your own loving energy, give your own knowing the benefit of the doubt for your own life.

Being a loving person need not feel like martyrdom dear ones. If you are authentically including yourself in the equation of your own life, taking care of your own needs, listening to your own guidance, they you will become a beacon of light, and a soul who is naturally guided by God to assist those ready to receive the particular brand of love you have to offer. Bring your light into the darkness in others' lives when guided, or turn away from it. But in any case, dear ones, do not allow your light to be dimmed, for you are the lights here upon the world, and it is through your love, your joy, and your authentic expression here upon the earth that you do the most good.
