Open the doorway

There is, within your hearts, a tiny spot that you can think of as a doorway to the universe. You call this your "spark of the Divine" but in reality you are all "sparks of the Divine." There is nothing outside of Divine love. 

Nonetheless, you experience yourselves in a physical reality. You experience yourselves as separate. Although you expand into universes and melt into oneness in much the same was as a wave expands and melts into the ocean, it is challenging to experience this reality. 

When you do touch upon the experience of this truth, you start to remember who you are. Your problems are seen as they truly are – lessons or illusions. You receive answers. You feel comforted, and emerge more confident.

This is why so many of you meditate. This is why you love to be in love. This is why you enjoy nature, singing, creating, or whatever it is you love. Love is expansive. Love immerses you in the present moment. Love takes you temporarily outside of time and into the Presence of a greater Love. It doesn't matter whether or not you love yourself, another, a sunset, or your ice cream... Love is the truth that removes you from all illusions. 

Human love, for any of these things, is fleeting and depends on its object. Divine love, like the ocean is always waiting for you to sink back into it and relax into its embrace.

There are many methods to experience this love.
 There are many doorways. One is through the point in the center of your chest, that tiny doorway in the energetic heart.

Take a breath. See if you can imagine or feel a tiny spark of light inside of the center of your chest, just to the right of the physical heart. Focus on it with your imagination. 

To open that doorway, imagine anything or anyone you love, great or small. The feeling is what matters. Focus on the love. Focus on that tiny point of light in your heart. If you like, close your eyes and take a moment to feel the love activate that energy in your heart.

As you feel this love, imagine it spiraling outward and filling you. You are turning to light. You relax into it. You don't have to do a thing. You simply allow it to expand within you, fill you, flow through you and correct any ills, any upsets, or entangled thoughts. Just sit, breathe, and allow the light to flow through the heart and expand within you. 

That light is always there. In truth, it is always flowing through you. However, by using exercises like these you allow your mind to stop resisting the experience. You start to become aware of the light that is already there. You start to feel it. You allow it to flood into your "experience" of reality and it starts to give you a happier, and healthier experience of life as well.

Dear ones we love you. Allow yourself the experience of this eternal and constant love, and it will improve your life as well as pour forth into the lives of those you touch. "Growth" could not be simpler!

Choosing your classe

For eons your planet earth has seen the coming and going of civilizations. It has seen the cycles of warmth and cold, cycles of oceans receding and growing larger. In very much the same way that the classes repeat year after year in a school, even though the students change and grow, your earth offers many lessons over and over for the sake of your soul's education. The teachers change. The situations differ. Nonetheless, through time immemorial, the classes have been the same.

There are classes of delight, and classes of suffering. There are classes of health and well-being, and classes of pain. As you learn to master your minds and focus upon that which you want, you are drawn into the classes that match your happier vibration.

Never in your existence is there ever a lesson that does not match your vibration. You know this and yet so many of you ask us the same question. "Why do bad things happen to good people. I'm a nice person. Why do bad things happen to me?"

Dear ones, at some level of your being, "being nice" might include the mistaken notion that you have to give more to others, than to self, that you have to sacrifice yourself, that you are not worthy of an easy, graceful, and beautiful life as long as there are other suffering around you.

While your thoughts might agree with what we say, search your hearts and see if you can find anything that makes you a bit fearful or resistant to having the life that you want.

If we told you that you would be loved if you didn't help another soul this lifetime, unless it was a joy to do so, would you be able to be authentic and say "No," to the next request that doesn't resonate with you... or you would you feel guilty?

If we told you that you never had to suffer again and that you could always pick the path of grace, ease, well being, abundance, and joy, ask yourselves honestly:
  • Who would I be if I had no complaints?
  • What would I do?
  • What would be the focus of my life, if not on solving challenges, or spending time commiserating with others?
  • Who would I lose?
  • Who would be jealous?
  • Who would expect me to give to them and take care of them?
  • Am I willing to have a glorious life... even when those I love don't choose the same?
  • Do I feel selfish if I answer yes to that question?
You will soon see, by looking at these and similar questions that perhaps within you there are energies that resist the very things you know you want. Look at these bits of resistance honestly, and love them until they let go.

Oceans of love and streams of grace want to pour into your life. There are classes of great joy here upon your planet earth. Look honestly at the unconscious resistance within, bring it into the light, and soon you will be guided into lessons and classes that delight you.. no matter what lessons the rest of the world is embroiled within. 

You are nothing less than Divine light. All lessons are here to help you realize that you are perfect exactly as you are, in each moment, in every breath.

Your real purpose

Never in your life are you without purpose. While there is great value in "seeking your purpose" know that your real purpose here on earth is to see love, be love, and express the love that sources you in each breath. It really is that simple. In the moments you are doing this, you will feel that your life is joyful, meaningful, purposeful, and expansive. 

While having a role you love, performing actions that feel 'significant,' or leaving a legacy may be expressions of your deeper purpose (to see love, be love, express love), they are not required to live a life that feels meaninful and rich with purpose. 

You can humbly garden all day, and still find a purpose in being at peace. You can watch the clouds and feel that your purpose is to embrace stillness. You can help one person by opening a door and know that your life had meaning this day. You can take one small self criticism and turn it to love, and know that there is great purpose in that act for your soul.

Try not invalidate yourself simply because you have not found an "activity" that makes you feel purposeful. Breathe... you have a purpose in that, for now you are part of the ecosystem on planet earth, feeding the trees and receiving the oxygen they provide. Breathe again... you have just shared your energy with all of creation and you are taking in the energies of all creation. There is purpose.

Look around you. Find one thing that looks like love to you – a color, an object, a person. Shut your eyes now. Feel your heart. Think of one thing to love about yourself. Now perform your next action with great love. See how simple this is? You have just seen love, been love, and expressed love. You are living on purpose.

Dear ones, in our eyes you are all equal. From the vastness of the mountains, to the lowest single-celled form of life you are all made of the very same love. Each one of you fits perfectly in the intricate web of existence, and none of you are ever without purpose.

Put a little love in your life

Change, dear ones, is inevitable, and it is also a great gift to you. Can you imagine if everything remained stagnant upon your earth? Even if you found yourselves in the best of times, you would eventually get bored. Thankfully, when you find yourself in difficult times, as your saying goes, "This too shall pass." Even your bodies are temporary. Nothing lasts but your eternal soul and your experiences. The only constant in the universe is Love.

"So what then is it all worth," so many of you ask? Why should I do anything if it isn't going to last? You can feed the poor and help them grow in self-worth but there will be more poor in generations to come. You can heal the earth to a degree but you have no control over what others do in the future. You can cook yourself a glorious meal tonight and you'll still have to make breakfast tomorrow... Thinking from a human perspective, it might just seem pointless.

This is why, dear ones, we urge you to labor, always, in love. When you labor in love, although you creations might not last, the love you put into them will. Love is eternal. Love is remembered. Love impacts lives, and helps souls evolve into greater understanding of their nature. So if you feed the poor with love, they feel loved. They grow. If you treat yourself with love, you feel loved. You grow and evolve. If you build the most magnificent building but do so without love it will crumble and you will have nothing to show for it, but if you build a shack with love, this will be something you carry with you as a huge accomplishment for eternity!

Dear ones, do your smallest tasks with love. Brush your teeth with love. Wash your dishes with love. Speak to the strangers at the grocery store with love. Do your work with love and if you can't love it, love yourself enough to pray for work you can love. Love the light within all human beings if even if you don't like them. Challenge yourself to put as much loving energy as possible into each and every one of your interactions. 

If you comb your hair with love, you will feel no less loved than if you were stroked by a lover. You have the capacity to allow love to flow in every moment, every breath, in everyday life. You have the capacity, dear ones, to live and labor in a love that lasts for all eternity. Make today meaningful. Go do something and do it with love.

Embracing perspectives

You are all looking at one another through the windows of your own perspectives. You are all simply trying to figure out who you are in the mirrors of life. "What part of the Divine puzzle am I," you ask. You learn the answer, in part, by observing others and learning what resonates and what does not.

You have the power to live in a very expansive and beautiful reality, or in a very limited, contracted, and narrow reality. You can enjoy learning about other people's perspectives or you can waste your precious life force making them wrong and judging them.

We are not saying you must dance with every human being or agree with every perspective. Far from it. 

We are simply suggesting you become the observers of life, rather than its judges. When you observe life, you see as a child sees, and as God sees. You witness what is going on around you with wonder. You don't say, "This shouldn't be! That is wrong! How could they think that way!" You say instead, "That's fascinating. I like this and I don't like that. I agree with this and not with that."  You own your own perspective, without having to make anyone else's wrong.

When you are open to other perspectives, you become very much like a child at a zoo. You watch all the different creatures and their different behaviors with a sense of wonder and fascination. You become curious. Why do people act the way they do. Why do they think the way they do? What do I like? Rather than judging you observe. You learn about the world around you. You learn about those different from you. You learn about yourself too as you start to acknowledge your own preferences. You like some. You don't like others. You don't have to feel guilty or even justify your feelings. You just move along and spend more time with those you like. 

In this fashion you can also observe human beings without any judgment. You can have your likes and dislikes without any need to feel guilty or justify your preferences. You can love the light within all people, while not liking the personalities and behaviors of some. You don't have to judge them, make them wrong, or condemn them. Would you need to condemn or judge vanilla if you preferred chocolate? Of course not. You could simply say "I love ice cream but honestly prefer chocolate" Likewise you can say, "I love the light that lives within all human beings but some drive me nuts so let me shift my focus to those I find more agreeable."

Dear ones your world is an amazing hub of diversity in the great scheme of creation. It was meant to be that way. The light that lives within you takes many different forms upon your planet earth. Love that light. Love the fact that it is expressed in so many different ways. Then allow yourself, without judgment or justification to simply move towards those with whom you resonate and away from those you don't. In this fashion, you free your soul to simply "be" and find its natural fit in the greater scheme of life.  

You are chained to those you judge. You are spiritually free when you allow all souls, including yourself, the right to be.
