Believe in what you want to do with your life. Your life is yours to direct as you may wish. Find what intrigues you, what gives you joy, and then pursue it for all you are worth. Happiness in work is crucial. Money means nothing. Do what you love.

Whenever you are tired, rest. Whenever you are hungry, eat. Whenever you are sad, cry. Be conscious of your physical and emotional needs and take good care of yourself. Whenever you are lonely, connect. Find the best way to manage your needs and to find positive movement. You are worth it. You are beloved.

Take care to shoulder your responsibility in any disagreement. Do not say "she made me...." You are responsible for your own actions no matter how provocative the other person is. Own it. Look at your own behavior and apologize when necessary. Make amends. Make it right. Then forgive yourself and move on, knowing that next time you can handle yourself and any situation with love and peace.

You create your own reality. Ghosts, demons, aliens -- all are created by the consciousness of the person perceiving them. Your very reality is in your perception. Your true reality is of spirit -- pure energy. Your life on earth is an illusion created for the purpose of learning and growing and moving along your path to your ultimate enlightenment. Enjoy it, take care what you create, and focus on what's good and true to your holy spirit. Whatever is unpleasant or scary or depressing, simply turn your attention away and it will disappear -- hell is only the fear of heaven. Heaven is at your fingertips at all times.

Believe that you are here for a good reason. When you decided to come here, you knew what you were doing and you had the help of great teachers and guides. Believe that your purpose is yours alone and that your progress along your path is in your hands and heart. Relax into this knowledge. It will help you in your darkest times. Trust yourself.

Sadness is nothing to be afraid of. Allow your sadness to inform you. Take a quiet moment to let it speak. Cradle it as you would a tiny child, with love and attention. Listen. When you know what is at its root, then you will be able to release it and move on to a brighter mood. Honor all your feelings. They are true and valid. And when acknowledged, will pass.

Create something. A painting, a story, a film, a dress, a table, a lamp, a recipe, a song, a poem. It doesn't have to be "good." You don't have to show it to anybody if you don't want to. Just do it. Let your critical mind take a rest, and just create something. Who knows what might come out of your subconscious? It will be fun, possibly therapeutic, and energizing. Do it every day. Create something from your heart, from your soul. Your world will be better because of it.

Be open and honest in your relationships. Ask. You will torture yourself wondering and wondering what the other person is thinking or wanting. Ask. Talk it over. Allow your partner his freedom. Allow your partner her space. If your love is real, you don't need to be together constantly. If your love is real, you don't need to know every little movement your partner makes. Give each other the blessing of trust. Allow your partner to live his own life, and take care that you live your own. Take pleasure in each other's individual pursuits. Come together at the end of the day and share what's happened openly. Tell her how you feel and what you are afraid of. Tell him your hopes and dreams. Talk and talk and talk. Open up to intimacy.

Though you might think that you are all alone, you are not. You might have chosen a solitary path in this lifetime, but we are always with you. There is a lot to learn from the solitary path. Self-reliance, self-confidence, self-worth. When not relying on outside approval, one must learn to approve of oneself. If you have chosen the path of aloneness, enjoy it and use it to find your own true glorious self.

Respect yourself for who you are, not for who you could be. Accept your own strengths and talents. Use them for the good of the world around you. Each of you has a different gift to give the world. Some of you will affect millions, some just the people around you. It is all worthy as long as it is in the service of light. Bring love and light into every action today.

Looking back is a fine thing to do as long as you are conscious that you are looking back and that your life is now. If all you are doing is wishing to retrieve something of the past, then your time is better spent focusing on the present. But if you frequently find yourself regretting the loss of something, do what you can to bring it into your life today in some form. Maybe you can't play major league baseball, but you can coach little league. Maybe you can't get that old lover back, but you can do the things that were fun with that person, and you can act as you did when you were happy with that person. Be today the person you were in that happy time, and all will be well.

Believe in the goodness of life. Believe in the goodness of your fellow creatures. Believe in the positive, forward motion of your days. Believe in your ultimate happiness. Believe in the eternal nature of your soul. Believe in your guides and counselors in spirit. Relax and have fun. We will protect you.

Be aware of everything. Notice your thoughts and feelings. Notice your friends and neighbors. Notice the weather. Notice the wildlife around you. At work and play, be conscious of what you are doing. Choose your words thoughtfully. All of this is just to say what many, many teachers are constantly teaching. Be Here Now. This is when you are alive. This moment now is what is true. Everything else is just a story in your head. This moment now is your opportunity to have a good life. Not "if" or "when" but right now, just the way things are. Be happy.

Your friends are precious. Remember them in your thoughts every day, even when they are far away. The people who love you contribute to your health and well-being in countless ways. Be grateful and do you best to be kind and thoughtful to them always. Cherish their hearts in your precious heart.

You must learn to enjoy the desire as well as the having. It can feel good knowing that you want something that you don't have. It can feel good just seeking an answer and not finding it. Enjoy the process as well as the reward, and life will be filled with pleasure. "Aren't I lucky that I live in this world where the possibility of pleasure exists!?!" Enjoy the curiosity, the gaze, the daydreaming, the pondering, the planning. What comes to fruition will come in its own time. Enjoy the wanting.

Most of you are thinking this is easier said than done. Acceptance, forgiveness, change. However, it is not harder than you yourself make it. Begin with the words, for example, "I release all resistance to change, I embrace change, I celebrate change." Say it til it makes you smile, and then say it a few more times. You will gradually see yourself loosening up, being more flexible, being open to what's on offer for you. Love is all around you and it is what you are made of. The divine intelligence of the universe is love.

Remember your loved ones when they're gone. They are not really gone. Remembering them and speaking of them and talking to them and blessing them keeps them close to you. They are here for you when you want them. Remember, over here, our energy is eternal and limitless. We are busy helping newly crossed over spirits and we are busy living other lives in other dimensions and we are busy with our own journeys, but the part of a soul which was your beloved can still come to you and help you and love you. Time and space mean nothing here.

Humility and forgiveness. "I'm sorry." "I forgive you." Atonement. We all make mistakes. We all err in judgment. We all hurt our friends and loved ones, and others we do not even know. When you err, do your best to make it right. When you are wronged, forgive. Pride and righteousness just wall up your heart. Humility and forgiveness connect you with every living creature.

Detach yourself from the notion of death as loss. We are all eternal, and death is merely slipping through to another dimension. You are so enamored of the physical form, that you believe the loss of the physical form is paramount, but from our perspective it is the merest trifle. You ask one another to live forever, so that you might also live forever. Well, you are already living forever. Yes, you will miss the physical manifestation of your loved one. Yes, you will miss the voice, the body. When you find yourself missing his form, just turn your attention to his soul. What did she give you in life? How did she touch you? Her words and attentions and love are still with you. Just listen.

Most of the time you are happy with the status quo. That's fine -- a good thing. We're always talking about acceptance, right? However, there is nothing in the concept of acceptance that means complacency. Action must be taken in order to get what you want in life. Announce to the universe with your positive movement that you are ready for your desired change and the universe will find many ways to support you. "I want this and this is what I'm prepared to do toward that goal." Energy begets energy.
Wednesday, August 5, 2009
Believe in yourself utterly. Believe that you can accomplish what you most want in life. Believe that you are a beautiful, and wise, and loving person. Believe that you have the universe at your fingertips. Believe that when you die,nothing is lost but the physical form you are now inhabiting. Believe that the path to happiness is in disassociating yourself from that physical form and recognizing your true nature. You do not have to die physically to be born into eternity.
Tuesday, August 4, 2009
Yes, infuse everything you do with joy. Yes, bring your full attention to what you are currently doing, however mundane and routine. Yes, open up to the beauty of the universe, and of your fellow creatures. Yes, try it and see! Yes, take a chance! Yes, LIVE!

Has it ever occurred to you that you rely too much on money for pleasure? Take pleasure from things that cost money, by all means, but that is not the only resource you have. Pleasure is the easiest thing in the world to gain. Breathing is pleasurable. Sex is pleasurable. Eating is pleasurable. Walking is pleasurable. Sleeping is pleasurable. Talking is pleasurable. Laughing is pleasurable. Dreaming is pleasurable. Remembering is pleasurable. Working is pleasurable. Even crying can be pleasurable. Enjoy everything.
Sunday, August 2, 2009
Laugh at yourself. The human condition is laughable. You are all struggling and striving and you have forgotten so much that you know when you are here with us. It's good to throw up your hands and surrender and just laugh. "Oh, well." Do the best you can, honor your mistakes as opportunities to learn, and move on to the next good thing. Relax. Everything's a little bit funny and a little bit sad. Life is what it is.
Saturday, August 1, 2009
Just celebrate. There's always something to celebrate. If you look around, your eye will alight on something of beauty, something funny, something endearing. Allow your heart to celebrate. Be proud of your accomplishments, however small. Be proud of the kind word to a stranger. Be grateful for a blue sky or refreshing rain. Sing Sing Sing.
