Life happens, you label it

Life happens, dear ones, and you label it - good or bad, right or wrong, success or failure. In God's eyes there are only actions and reactions, choices and consequences. In God's eyes, everything no matter how unevolved is an attempt to move towards greater love. We know this is difficult to see at times in your human existence, and yet, if you can try to simply assume that everyone is attempting to seek and express love at some level of their being, then it is easier to forgive. It is easier not to react. It is easier to say, "Well they are growing and I can respect their journey." Dear ones, this is especally important now upon your earth, for everyone is being forced to grow, without exception, and many people are, in your human terms, resisting this growth and creating all sorts of chaos.

How you choose to view your life is up to you. Is something good or bad? How do you know? How can you say authoritatively, "This is horrible," when you do not have the bigger picture. God sees the infinite interactions and reactions to any given circumstance. For example, when many people leave the planet in a natural disaster, you say, "This is horrible! How can this be?" And yet from our perspective, dear ones, we are have a huge celebration - welcoming home so many souls back into the ever loving arms of God. From our perspective, we witness an outpouring of love and compassion from the world, often for the ones who have once been forgotten, who are now in the limelight. Suddenly labels such as "rich," "poor," etc. are gone and you realize you are all human beings. Compassion surges. Generosity abounds. This is the love we see coming to the surface.

Take a smaller example from everyday life. Someone snaps at you in anger. "How is this possibly a movement towards love?" you ask. Chances are likely that this individual has problems expressing themselves, or taking care of themselves. In their own, extremely unenlightened way, they are saying, "I am trying to express myself. I am trying to care about myself, albeit very awkwardly and often painfully." SO you see, there is love buried beneath it all.

Consider another example. Something you love breaks down. This is inconvenient, perhaps even expensive. Can you assume there is love beneath this? Perhaps God sees better for you and something more convenient. Perhaps God wants you to experience someone else's generosity so you can know you are loved? Perhaps you need to realize that you are abundant after all.

Dear ones, no matter how awkwardly it is expresssed there is love beneath it all. It is your perspective that determines how you experience life. Can you try to adopt a perspective that says, "I will seek the love, believe in the love, and be the love?" While we know this is difficult and can't be achieved at all times, do your best. It will make your life, and your world, a much better place.
