Doing what you don't love?

We always advise you to follow your hearts, but being human you'll discover as you follow your heart towards your larger desires there are things along the way that don't excite you much at all. Many of you have asked us, "What do I do if a desire is in my heart, but I don't have the desire to do the work required to get there."
  • For example, you might want a great relationship but you don't want to do the inner work to manifest a good one.
     
  • You might want to own your own business but you don't feel like doing the marketing and accounting. 
     
  • You might love your children but you don't enjoy running around taking them places. 
So what do you do in these situations where your heart wants something but then you don't really enjoy the steps along the way?

Our answer is not "one size fits all." 

Sometimes you must simply ask yourself, "Am I so strongly opposed to doing the work I need to do to satisfy my heart's desire that that I'm going to give up?" This will most likely put everything in perspective and you can see that the "smaller tasks" are actually labors of love as you work towards something you deeply desire. Driving your kids to school suddenly becomes a labor of love. You can choose to love what you do.

Perhaps you'll choose to manifest your desire spiritually by visualizing and feeling the desired outcome, without any doubt, until it comes about in a miraculous way. Perhaps you'll get creative and find a way to love doing what you need to do. You can choose a more loving way to do what you do.

Perhaps you'll re-evaluate your larger desire and see that you didn't really want all that comes with it after all. For example if you won millions in the lottery you'd have to do a lot of accounting, hire people you can trust, and deal with everyone wanting something from you. Some of you would want that. Others of you would not. You can always choose a more loving choice.

Perhaps you'll see that you don't mind doing the smaller tasks in general, but you just don't feel like doing them right now. Honor your heart's timing. Ultimately that is God's timing. You can choose more loving timing.

In honoring your heart in the present, you will learn what you need to learn to get where you want to go. 

You'll learn whether you really want to do what you say you do. You'll learn to get creative and add love to what you do. You'll learn to make more loving choices. You'll learn everything you need to learn to get what you ultimately, deeply want.

For example, say you want to find someone that loves you more than you love you. By all means try to do that. Maybe you will find this person. Perhaps they'll help you learn to love yourself. Perhaps you'll feel unworthy, push them away, and learn to love yourself more the next time. The heart will guide you.

Say you want to start a business but don't want to put in the effort. You may choose to keep working for others until something arises that you feel so passionate about doing that the mundane work seems worthwhile.

Say you don't want to get up in the morning and drive your kids to school, but you realize that you love them and don't get to spend much time with them and you can make the drive a loving time to deeply connect.

Do what you love, do what you do with love, or don't do it. That is our advice for a happy and fulfilled journey upon your earth!

Treasure your life

Your life upon the earth, whether it is only a few years or a hundred, is so very short in the span of eternity. It is a precious gift and an experience that each and every one of you desired before you were born. You wanted to shift your awareness from the world of spirit into the physical because you saw it as an opportunity to learn, to grow, to love, and to expand in your awareness of the love that lives within all things.

There is and never has been anything small or insignificant about you. In every moment you choose to love yourself, another, or even the ground beneath your feet, the entire fabric of creation knows more love. In every moment you overcome a challenge, the entirety of the human race will have easier opportunities to overcome similar challenges. In every desperate moment, when you think one loving thought, the entire collective human consciousness is infused with greater love.

You are not separate. You never were, and you never will be. The energy that abides in you connects all of you in the invisible realms. It is in only in moments of deep Presence, or when you take your leave of this physical existence that you will see the subtle, loving, fabric of creation that unites you as One.

Your life in this physical existence, no matter how challenging is precious. Can you imagine that the Infinite has taken form within you, and allowed you to direct it in any way you choose? Through your choices, you give God experiences in the physical world. Through your actions, you allow the Divine to witness and experience itself. As you gaze upon a rose, the Divine looks through your eyes and sees its own beauty. As you gaze in the mirror, the Divine sees one of its own beautiful faces.

Your life is a gift. Treasure it dear ones. Don't worry so much about the state of the world. Be more concerned with the state of your inner being. Don't worry so much if others can't love you or one another. Be more concerned with loving yourself, loving others, and allowing yourself the most amazing experience you can here upon your earth. Savor your moments. Savor your interactions. Savor the challenges because they lead to love's ultimate victories. Be an example of God's love for one another for this is how you will uplift and educate those for whom you care.

When you eventually leave your bodies you will look back and see that every moment of your human life was rich with potential to experience and expand love. Make use of your time here on earth. Enjoy your life to the fullest, and look for the love you can receive or contribute to each moment, for in doing so you embrace heaven, right here, right now.

It all leads to love

Your lives will unfold in the most miraculous ways this year if you can trust that everything around you is conspiring to lead you to greater love. 

The things and people that inspire you are like beacons guiding you to greater love. Allow yourself to follow your heart even in things that seem insignificant. If you want a cup of coffee, stop and get one. You never know who you might meet.

The unloving souls and challenging circumstances are like canyon walls that guide the water to choose an easier path. Allow yourself to lovingly move away from what hurts or upsets you towards what feels more loving. Stop trying to save, fix, and change those who haven't asked for it, and instead allow yourselves joy no matter what those around you choose. You will become the beacons of love and joy to guide those who are ready.

Your unexpected circumstances and changes in plans occur when the Divine sees something better for you than you might have asked. Avoid tantrums when things don't go your way, and trust the adventure. Be open to spontaneous change. Attempting to control anything or anyone too tightly only leads to frustration and stress. Planning while allowing for change keeps you on a grace-guided path.

If you believe in love, you'll see the love, and receive the love. Trust the unfolding adventure of your lives dear ones. You are always exactly where you need to be to learn what you wan to learn.

In the Real world, when you someday awaken from this earthly dream, you will remember that everything is, and always will be, all about love. Indeed there is nothing else beneath it all. Why not allow yourselves this love right here, right now? It is always present, beckoning you back into its embrace, whispering gently, "This is who you are."
