This moment...

We know that is is very easy to get caught up in an all-consuming list of things you feel you must accomplish. It is easy to long for the things and situations you want in your future. It is all too common to focus on how you wish those around you would behave or how you would ideally like to "be." 

It is the nature of the soul to want improvements in your life, yourself, and those around you. However, the soul knows that the quickest way to a desired future is to anticipate its coming, while at the same time, living with a sense of wonder, awe, gratitude, acceptance, and compassion for yourself, the situation, and the people in front of you – right here, right now.

To accomplish this, dream your dreams, focus on improvements you want to make, and pray for the situations you desire. At the same time, remind yourself frequently...

What matters most is not what I accomplish today, but whether or not I enjoy this moment.

What matters most is not what I am going to have in the future but rather whether or not I am able to enjoy what I have now.

What matters most is not having everyone around me change, or even having myself change, but rather embracing myself and others as we are now... with a sense of wonder and compassion.


Of course you want to accomplish your goals. It is natural to want to improve your life. Love is always seeking to create a more loving experience. These wishes and dreams pull you forward along the path of your growth and evolution. Nonetheless, we remind you with great love...

Don't miss your life.

If you remain centered in the present, committed to finding love in the moment, immersing yourself with total focus on the task at hand, being grateful for what you have now, allowing yourself and others to be exactly as they are for the moment... then dear ones you will be open to an unblocked flow of love streaming straight from the heart of the Divine! 

You will think with clarity and receive crystal clear guidance. Your health, as well as your emotional and spiritual well-being will begin to improve instantly! When you embrace the present, you are no longer running away from love! If you are rushing to the future or hurrying away from your past, you are missing the love available right now.

Dream your dreams. At the same time, embrace each precious amazing moment of life. From each moment of love, peace, gratitude, compassion, and wonder, you will gracefully and easily be guided to an even better and more amazing moment as your eternal soul travel through the illusions of time.

Honesty is loving

Inside each of you is a very great love longing to rise to the surface. This love can be expressed in so many different ways! It can be expressed in your "yes" and in your "no." It can be expressed in your joy and in your gratitude. It lies beneath your sorrow, your fear, and even your upsets, for in truth, this love is what you are made of, and it is constantly trying to reveal itself in your life

You express this love most purely when you are honest with yourself and the world around you. There is a notion in humanity that love is only expressed in a "positive" form – by saying "yes' to every request, by making everyone comfortable, or by appearing cheery no matter what the circumstances. These expressions are beautiful when genuine. 

Nonetheless, there are times when "no" is an expression of love. There are times when love dictates that you must allow someone else their discomfort in order to be true to your own heart. There are even times when you cannot truly, authentically find a positive outlook and, in these spaces, allowing yourself your sadness, fear, anger, and envy with complete self-acceptance, may be the highest expression of love you can find in that moment. 

So many of you have been trained to believe that pleasing people is an act of love. We would agree when your heart is genuinely inclined to do so. However, it is not loving to assist another if you are not honestly drawn to do so. If a friend calls and says, "Can you help me today," and you have other plans, drop into your heart. "Heart, Divine Love, what is it you want for me today?" Trust the answer. Perhaps you will genuinely want to cancel your plans and help your friend. Perhaps you will not. Truth is loving Being honest with yourself and others is loving. If you serve the truth within your own hearts, dear ones, then whether or not you please everyone else's ego, you will serve their soul.

Remain true to the presence of light within. Serve the guidance in your heart in each moment, rather than living by the dictates with which you have been trained. Allow your "yes"es to be those that truly come from the heart. When you are not inclined to do something, say "no" with love. Trust. Trust that the creator is guiding each and every one of you. For every soul in need, there will be a soul genuinely guided and desiring to give. For every soul who longs to give, there will be one willing to receive. 

You are all expressions of the one Love, dancing in Love, with other expressions of Love. Be honest with yourselves dear ones and your lives will be a beautiful dance of Love

Unspoken Agreements

You live in a world of unspoken agreements and implicit expectations. You live in a world where many feel that if they do "x" someone owes them "y." A parent raises a child and expects that child to take care of them in later years. A woman or man is a dutiful daughter or son and expects their parent's blessing when they finally make their own choices. A partner sacrifices his or her own dreams for the other, expecting to be loved and supported in return. Perhaps. alternately a partner supports the other financially and expects to be loved for being the provider.

While these are certainly reasonable requests, they become troublesome when they are left as  unspoken expectations. If you do something with an expectation of having someone else do something or behave a certain way in return, then you have, in effect, stopped treating the other person as a soul, and started treating them as an "object" – a thing that must behave in a certain manner. Inevitably, this leads to disappointment, bitterness, upset and even hatred in extreme cases.

In reality dear ones you are all learning, growing, and trying to assist one another towards greater understandings of love.

Rather than harboring unspoken agreements, make explicit requests. "I will babysit your kids every week if you can be available when I occasionally need some help." "I don't mind providing for you but I do need some sympathy and understanding that I work long hours in return." "I will take care of you. I only ask that you treat me kindly." And to your kids. "I love you. I expect you to behave in a certain way. If you don't here is what will happen."
Decide what you will do if the requests are not met. Will you make the request of someone else? Will you let it go, realizing it is not so important? Will you walk away and move towards greener pastures and kinder souls? Will you simply outline the consequence of certain choices.

If the friend you have helped on a daily basis will not help you, you can choose to ask someone else to assist. You can walk away from the friendship, realizing it has been one-side all along. You can simply modify your plans. Only you will know what is true for you. If you children behave in ways that you don't like, again you have choice. You can drop into your heart and tell them how you feel. You can disown them. Again only you can choose what is honestly in your heart.

This way of living requires great personal responsibility. It requires you to be clear about what you want, courageous enough to express it, and faithful enough to know that if someone can't meet your requests that the entire universe is there waiting to assist with other alternatives. It is much more work to take responsibility in this way than to simply expect others to conform to your wishes and get upset when they don't.

However, dear ones, if you want to be free, we encourage you to release yourself and others from the bondage of expectations. Engage instead in real, honest, and authentic dialog in which you make explicit requests. Allow yourself to be who you are and want what you want. Allow others to be who they are. In this fashion you will easily see who honestly fits your life, and who doe not.
