Everything has purpose

Can you trust that everything, absolutely everything in life is in right order. Everything that happens around you is with purpose. Everything is in a harmonious dance of creation designed to interact in a beautiful dance of love. And when things do not feel loving it is simply born of misunderstanding - either the misunderstanding of those creating the actions, or the misunderstanding of those who bear witness.

But how can such atrocities as murder or abuse be in "right order,” we hear you asking? How can they possibly serve a purpose? Dear ones, at the level of human interaction they are, of course, morally wrong. To hurt or kill another is an unloving action and a crime not only against the other, but also against humanity, and more importantly against one’s deepest and truest essence… which is love.

Nonetheless, beneath every horrible action, we see love attempting to emerge. We see hurting souls crying for their pain to be seen in the most unloving and un-evolved ways. We see those who suffer at the hands of murderers, abusers, and other perpetrators frequently, as angels who are willing, as the famous martyrs of old, to suffer if they feel it would help remove another’s pain. Is this necessary? Of course not dear ones. God asks very few souls to be martyrs, and yet so many volunteer out of a belief that it is the holiest course of action to do so.

If you could only see the decisions made before birth… “I will do anything, anything to wake up this other soul that I love so much…even if it involves suffering at their hand!” In the heavens before birth that is such an easy decision to make, because the soul knows it is eternal. On earth, these spirits - now human - often wonder what they have done to “deserve” such behaviors. No one, and we repeat, no one, deserves abuse of any kind.

And while this kind of choice - to suffer for the sake of another, may seem unthinkable - how many of you have willingly sacrificed your own well being, even in the smallest of ways, out of a desire to help and assist another? This is not wrong. It is a choice. Only you can decide if the choice feelings loving and right for all involved, including yourself.

There are an infinite number of reasons for suffering on your planet earth. Some souls suffer, as the martyrs do, trying to “wake up” another. Some wish to inspire compassion. Some souls leave the earth in seemingly awful ways because they are tired, complete, or in rare cases, curious about transition. Some feel, erroneously, that they “deserve” punishment for past life behaviors. So while at the human level see suffering as “bad” or “wrong,” understand that even the toughest situations on earth have merit and purpose to the soul.

Why do we have this discussion dear ones? Because so many of you feel such sadness when you witness the world’s pain. We in the heavens dearly wish that all souls would choose to grow in a more loving and kind way for themselves and others. But we do not allow the behavior of others to remove us from seeing and feeling the love of the Creator. And you, even as humans, can bear witness to the world’s suffering and still know that each and every soul involved is being given an opportunity to learn more about love - love of God, love of self, and love of others, for as we see it… this is all One in the same.

Stop struggling, enjoy now

You can never be without love, without guidance, or without direction. It is only your thoughts that limit you, and your ideas of what can or cannot be achieved in your human reality. When you pray, so many of you pray in desperation rather than in faith. If you truly knew God's love for you, if you believed with all your heart that the power that made you wants to sustain and elevate you, then you would pray with confidence, trusting that your prayers would all be answered in the right time and in the most beautiful fashion.

Dear ones, you go about life so dearly trying to control every aspect of it. You want things to look a certain way, "so that you will be happy," but in truth so many of you are willing to sacrifice your happiness now in the hopes of a happier future. In truth, you can choose to enjoy your life right now. You can choose to savor the sunrise, or smell the sweet scent of a rose. You can give thanks for the breath your breathe, the roof overhead, and the food that nourishes your body. You can trust that all is in right order, all is well, and if you simply let go in faith, doing what you know to do now and relaxing into the moment, then your life can unfold in ways you could not possibly dream or imagine. You can open up to life, rather than trying to control it. You can pick the most enticing current in the stream and enjoy the ride. You can say, "Ah this feels good right now, let me see where it leads."

Life was never meant to be a struggle. And yet humanity chooses to struggle with life. Embrace it instead. Say, "Here I am, right here, right now! Is there anything I know to do right this second that feels wonderful and supports my dreams? If so, do it. If not, enjoy the moment." Trust life dear ones. It is nothing less than Love interacting with Love in an endless dance of discovering what it can become.

Containers for the soul...

Each one of you is a beautiful part of creation. Each one of you holds within your very being, within your mind, body, and emotions, even within your DNA, the potential to be anyone you choose to be in the whole of creation. However, before you come to earth, you select various traits that you will embody and embrace - skin color, eye color, hair, size, shape, emotional makeup, mental points of view given to you by parents, society, etc. These will be your soul’s “containers” while you are on the earth, until at long last you realize you are not the containers, but rather something so much more.

It is important that you honor these containers for the functions they serve. Love your body as it is now, even if you want to change it later. It is teaching you to love yourself more deeply. Honor your own emotions for they guide you to a deeper truth about what it is you wish to experience in any given moment. They are messages from your soul. Embrace your ideologies because they allow you to explore various aspects of self, while all the while allowing others’s theirs as well.

These containers - the mind, body, emotions - are often called “the ego” and “the ego” seems to have a very bad reputation in your human minds. In reality “the ego” is simply a container for the soul, a little vessel that limits your experience so you can, in a sense, enroll in certain classes her upon the earth. “The ego” is neither good nor bad. It defines your sacred point of view this lifetime - what aspects of the infinite that you wish to explore.

Problems occur when you begin to believe “your ego” is the only right container for the soul - when you expect others to look as you think they should, feel as you think they should, and believe as you believe they should. This is like a glass of water saying to the pitcher, “You should be a glass like me!” or the river saying to the ocean, “Why are you so spread out? You should run through a channel as I do!” or the ocean saying to the river, “Why are you so confined! Relax! Spread out! Let go.”

By all means, embrace who you are and wish to be in any given moment. Be clear about who and what you want in your lives and make no apology for your own sacred point of view. However, allow others their own as well, for their bodies, beliefs and feelings define their classes here upon the earth. Share yours of course, but try to allow others theirs as well. When you embrace your own sacred point of view you can, without apology, move closer to those with whom you resonate and kindly move away from those with whom you do not. You can allow others who respect your particular brand of light to move closer, and you can kindly and firmly create boundaries for those who do not.

While each one of you is part of one great love, you choose to experience this love in different forms during a lifetime, and at different points in your life. Allow yourselves this freedom. Allow others the same. And in so doing, you grant the world a deep and ever changing, but lasting peace.

Wise ones within

There is within each of you a very powerful light, a light that is the light and the love of God. There is within you as well, a great and vast reservoir of wisdom, of all knowledge you need to connect with in order to live your life in joy, grace, and ease no matter what the outer circumstances. There is within you a healer, a part of yourself that knows you, the real you, is already whole and that you must only eliminate misunderstandings and learn to love the parts of yourself that feel unloved in order to create a greater degree of healing. Dear ones the entire universe exists within you if you go deep enough.

So when something in your life is not working the way you wish, assume that the power, the answers, the resources that you need are all available inside of your very own soul. Take a breath, quiet your mind. Go within, and simply say, "Who within can help me?" Allow your imagination to bring forth a picture or a feeling of the wise person within, the healer within, or perhaps the unloved part of you within that wants attention. Allow yourself to connect with an image or a feeling of the parts of you that can help solve the problem. For whether conscious or unconscious, you have energies inside of your soul that can take a shape, a form, a feeling in your imagination and speak back to you - giving you advice, wisdom, or even assistance. These are parts of your very own soul. They are the "angels" within you so to speak, the parts of God's love planted as seeds within your being, before you were even born!

Try it now. Think of an area in your life where you need assistance. Intend that you will only receive help from the wisest and most loving parts of your soul. Take a few deep breaths. Quiet your mind. And then using your imagination say to yourself, "Who within can help me?" Allow an image or a feeling to come to mind. Ask this image or imagine asking this feeling, "What advice can you give me?" "How can you help me?" or in some cases, "What do you need from me?" If the answer resonates with you, trust. Try it. See what comes of this.

There is so much more to each of you than meets the eye, and by using techniques such as these, you can bypass the parts of your logical mind that limit what you know and enter into the vast reservoirs of wisdom planted deep in your very own being.
