We are waiting for you to understand that you are one of us. That you are a divine creature. That you are perfect and on your path. When you realize that, then you will relax about everything. When you realize that, you will treat everyone beautifully and lovingly. When you realize that in your core, all will be well every minute. You get glimpses and you enjoy them and recognize them. Let the glimpses become longer and longer moments. Let the moments become hours and days. Let the days become years and lifetimes. You are blessed and you are a blessing to others. Know it.

When you are kind to someone, hear what you are saying. Listen to yourself when you are comforting someone, encouraging someone, complimenting someone, boosting someone's self-esteem. Allow the words to flow back into your heart. You deserve it.

Be happy with your own skills and abilities. Don't be a wannabe. You have certain talents that will allow you to move along in your soul's journey. Use them in the world, and you will be healed as well as contributing to the spiritual growth of all of humanity. Be yourself in the world, not some idealized version of what you think you should be. Just be yourself and allow your own natural gifts to emerge. Don't try to fit into someone else's idea of who you should be. Don't try to please. Don' be motivated by money or fame. Just be yourself with your own unique beauty and light. Be yourself. Becoming your essential self, which is loving, talented, wise and beautiful, is your calling and your home.

"Collect your thoughts," nice image. However, it seems to open the door to being overwhelmed and stuck in your thoughts, like a hoarder is trapped by material objects. "Gather your thoughts," much better. Gather your thoughts as you would gather up things in a room you are clearing. Dispose of any thoughts that are detrimental to peace and light and freedom and beauty. Only cherish the thoughts that bring a smile of pure joy to your face, a lightness to your step, and a liberation to your spirit.

What is the meaning of life? Life itself is the meaning. Life and growth and learning and being good. Being conscious and being connected. Being the truest expression of the divine that you can be in any particular moment in time. Find the beautiful and infinite space within your heart where you are connected to the pure, essential nature of existence. That is meaning -- nothing else is required. Everything else is how you choose to move about in space and time. Some choices help you grow, some do not. Allow the choices that promote peace and compassion, release the choices that do not come from love. Make meaning, that is, consciousness of your own divinity, with every choice.

Stop waiting for someone else to make you happy. Stop waiting for someone else to change. Stop waiting for the world to behave as you want. Relax! Everything's just fine! Take pleasure in your life! Relax! Why make anything a problem? Feel your feelings, honor your journey, and be happy.

Below every misstep is pain. Below every hurful word is hurt. Below every angry outburst is fear. Identify the deeper emotions connected to what's going on and nurture the hurt part of yourself holding on to them. Hold that part of you like the precious child that he is and surround him with love and healing. Do not judge. Accept, have compassion, love.

When you see someone misbehaving, please start with compassion and love in your response. Know that when a person misbehaves, down deep he is feeling hurt or alone or scared or unworthy. Responding to someone with anger and blame only makes it worse. Accept apologies. Forgive. Wipe the slate clean. Know you are as capable of misbehavior as the next person, given the right circumstances. Forgive.

Listen and learn. Listen and discern. It is always good to listen to others -- teachers, parents, experts, doctors, philosophers, theologians, gurus, -- but you must be discerning about what you hear. You must decide for yourself. The same is true of your own thoughts and feelings. Listen for the information there, but decide in your higher consciousness what is valid, what is real, what is worth your time and energy. Most thoughts and emotions are fleeting and of no lasting value. Just listen and put energy into the ones that make you feel stronger, more alive, and more loving and giving. Be discerning in what you choose believe.

Whatever is going on around you need not affect your peace of mind. Whatever you see or hear or sense only has the power you give it. Whatever other people think is their own affair, it needn't worry you. Stay within yourself and your own truth. There lies peace.

You beautiful earth people are so sad and lonely so much of the time because you do not recognize us. And you do not recognize each other as the divine creatures that you are. The human experience is just like pinching off a little piece of yourself and isolating it from the love of the whole. It doesn't have to be that way, though. More and more and more of you are finding your way back to the oneness and to the joy of all that is. More and more and more of you are showing the way to enlightenment. Find joy. It is within you and all around you. Within you and all around you. Within you and all around you.

It's a simple idea: release anger. And yet for most of you it is not easy. It is a simple thought: love and accept one another. And yet most of you fail to some degree every day. If you are angry at someone, try releasing. If you just can't seem to because not being angry at that person is frightening or "feels wrong," just try being curious about the idea. "What would it be like if I were to release the anger I am feeling?" Here's where all your stories will come up. Your bogus "if-thens." Question everything that gets in the way of release. Detach from all the stories you have made up about what you are feeling. When you release the anger, you will feel better, body, mind and spirit. And you will once again be on the side of light.

Simply love. Don't worry about anything. Really! Worry and hope and expectation and yearning all put you outside of your actual life. Whatever is in front of you right now, love and appreciate it. Whoever is in your life right now, love and appreciate them. Live your actual life, not a fantasy. Love your actual life. Voila! Happiness!
Saturday, February 13, 2010
Spend some time today just being happy. No reason is required. Simply release any unhappy feelings, release any anxious thoughts. Allow the joy and love of which you are made to blossom within your heart. It is always there. Just allow it to surface. Let go of whatever is disturbing your natural sense of peace and happiness. Just let go.
Friday, February 12, 2010
Believe in your own true, loving nature. Believe that at your core, you are divine, beloved, intelligent, creative, happy, and perfectly safe. Believe in your inner strength and courage. Believe in your compassionate connection to the entire universe. Believe in yourself utterly.

Some of you have incarnated to be of service. Some to learn compassion, some to play and have fun. Some will choose long and fruitful lives, some short and angst-ridden. Just know that it is all for your highest good. And that you can always shorten the suffering by simply learning the lesson. You saddle yourself with an acting-out teenager to learn patience? Forget about patience, and just love and accept and listen to that teeanager. You choose disease to learn faith? Just relax and allow faith to grow. You have chosen hard, hard work to learn humility? Just humble yourself before the vastness of the one consciousness. Your life's plan is always renegotiable. You can find peace, happiness, love, compassion and long life at any moment. Every moment is an opportunity for surrender. Just remind yourself, the battle is over. You are fine. You needn't suffer one more second.

May blessings shower in upon you every day of your life. You are unique and magnificent. Your particular contribution is necessary and sufficient. Allow the blessings, and allow the world to know who you truly are. Allow the world to see your own true magnificence.

Your own true self is the creation of the divine consciousness, of which you are an integral part. You must remember this divine intelligence. When you are in touch with your own true self, you are in touch with the divine intelligence of all that is. Believe in yourself as part of the truth of the universe. Believe in yourself as a part of all that is. Not separate, not less-than. We are all truly one.
Monday, February 8, 2010
Our hope for you is merely that you awaken to your situation and to your inner truth. Be conscious of the mundane and the divine. Know what you are thinking and feeling and doing, and know that these concepts are all of the mundane. Know what you are. This is the divine.

Spirit is talking to you all the time. The phone rings and no one is there. What was that bell sent to remind you of? Or move you toward? You take a wrong turn and find yourself in just the place you need. That is your guidance. Sometimes it's very dramatic, but sometimes it is very subtle. Sometimes the message is only "You are on the right track." Sometimes the message is merely, "We are always here." Always listen and honor the messages. Always be alert to serendipity. When you honor the subtle messages, the big ones will come through loud and clear. You will walk in joy and ease when you are open to spirit.

Please, please, please, harbor no resentments. As long as you hold on to the wrongs committed against you, you are just staying attached to the hurt. Please, please, please, let it go! "Wow! That really hurt! What must have gone on for that person for him to be able to behave so unkindly!" Bless him and move on. Send love to the pained child inside that person and move on. Fill your heart with gladness and love. Love Love Love Love Love Love!!!

Settle in with yourself. Be friends with your own hurts and fears. Listen to your own voice. Allow your feelings to surface quietly. Hold the parts of you that are sad or anxious in your heart and heal them with love. Be your own best friend. Be your own loving mother and father. Speak to and about yourself kindly. You will find that you are all you need to be happy.
Thursday, February 4, 2010
You might live your life without spirit, but spirit is always there for you. You might think you are alone, but you are always surrounded by loving guides. You might lose your connection to your heart, but your heart is always beating within you. You might lose your way, but your guidance is always available. Stop. Be quiet. Allow.
Wednesday, February 3, 2010
Have as your intention growth, your highest good. Have as your intention learning. Have as your intention discovery, exploration. State your intention out loud. Spend as much time as you can visualizing yourself living your intention. Have as your intention love, compassion, goodness, abundance. Have as your intention fun, humor, honorable work. Have as your intention peace.
Tuesday, February 2, 2010
The world is constantly changing. You cannot prepare for the future because you do not know what the future will hold. So you allow the unfolding of your consciousness and the release of old hurts. You allow yourself to relax into being your true, beautiful self in the world, day by day by day. You allow your own heart's ease. When you relax into your heart's ease, you will naturally find yourself facing each new situation and challenge with equanimity and grace. You will create your days in a glow of warmth and love.
Monday, February 1, 2010
Allow the love we have for you to be a beacon for your own heart's path. Allow the love the universe is made of to be the reason you take the next step and the next. Allow the love in your life to vibrate within you and shine forth from you. Allow the love that is your birthright be your guide in all decisions and actions. Allow the love within you to hold your fear as a doting mother holds a beloved child, easing all pain and anxiety. Allow the love.
