Just speak up. You never know what's going on with someone else until you ask. And that person can't know what's in your heart until you speak up. Most of the time, talking is better than not talking. Information is better than being in the dark. Investigation is better than speculation. Just speak up.

The negative energy in the world is created by anxiety and doubt. Railing against it, being "anti" just increases the negative energy. Meet anger with compassion. Meet anxiety with love. Declare yourself "pro." Pro-peace, pro-brother- and sisterhood. Pro-tolerance. Pro-affluence for all. Be a positive light in the darkness of fear.

There is a well of creativity and yearning in you. There is a well of love and devotion. Find what makes your heart sing. Find what nourishes your soul. It might be paid work or an avocation. It might be artistic or contemplative. Find what makes your heart sing and allow it to flourish. I love you.

Of course, you are wise. Within you is the wisdom of the ages. Within you is the experience of millions, trillions. You have seen so much and done so much and inherited so much. You are tapped into the untold knowledge of all beings. Open up. You are one with the universe.

In relationship, it is your responsibility to feel and notice what you are feeling in any situation. It is your responsibility to bring conscious thought into the situation. It is your responsibility to determine if any actions are advisable based on what you are feeling and thinking. It is then your responsibility to act in a loving and kind way toward connection or boundary setting or resolution. All of this remains your responsibility no matter how unloving or provocative the other person is being. Good things happen when you take charge of your own actions and let go of trying to convince the other person to change.

For a happy relationship, find the places where you connect with the other person and focus your attention there. The places where you disagree can be less important. Find compromises or stop talking about that particular subject. No one person can fulfill all your social and emotional needs. Spread out your love and time and support among many, and you will receive all you could hope for in return. There is no shortage in the universe of any of these blessings.

Whenever you doubt yourself, you are resisting what is. Simply look at the situation as clearly as you can and make the best choice. You are only able to do what you are able to imagine and what you have a will to do. If it doesn't work out, try something else. Self-doubt is paralyzing. Look before you leap, certainly, but even if you're afraid or unsure, leap.

What is love? What is romantic love? The two are not the same. One is divine, the other distinctly human. Both are glorious. One is always within you, surrounding you. The other comes and goes and comes again. Trust in both and you will have them. Begin by loving -- yourself, others, and the life you have chosen. Begin by loving.

Those of you who are parents know that you were not "ready" to have children. Most of you know you were not "ready" for the promotion or lay-off or retirement. You might have thought you were, but when the change occurred, you discovered that the reality was quite different from what you had envisioned. You can plan and make good decisions, but you must always be aware that you do not specifically know what the future will bring. You are not able to imagine every eventuality. You are prepared for the future by knowing that you are smart and capable and can learn and ask for help. You are prepared for the future by trusting in your divine protection and guidance. You are prepared for the future by keeping your heart and mind open and flexible. Step into the future with your head held high, with a curious and accepting nature, and you will not go wrong.

Begin with relaxing your body. Consciously observe all the muscles in your body relaxing. Know that as you relax physically, you can relax mentally. Know that by releasing tension, you can release sadness, anger, guilt, resentment, fear. You needn't have any intention but to relax. The rest will come naturally. There might be a period of increased anxiety at first. That's normal. That's just the old stuff which has not been acknowledged for a while. Just breathe through it. It's nothing but insubstantial thought. Release. Release. Release.

Relationships come and go at the physical level. People come into your life for a reason, and when that intention is satisfied they move on. Relationships in the karmic perspective are less temporary. Some last throughout eternity. If something is unfinished in this lifetime, you will be reunited with that soul in spirit, and probably in another physical lifetime, to continue the process. Don't cling to someone who is moving away from you, but do make sure you are open and honest with that person, and do your best to make the relationship good, however long it lasts. The agreements made in spirit are always up for renegotiation during your time on earth. Be conscious of what you are doing. Detach, and love. All is well.

It is perfectly okay to assert yourself, to ask for what you want, to "blow your own horn." You must remember that it is your job to take care of yourself, and that it is your job to show your true colors in the world, to use what you have been given and what you have created to enhance the joy and light and love of the world. Don't hang back. Don't be shy. Speak up. Laugh out loud. Take your rightful place in the world and stand there for all you're worth. It's okay to shine, to be successful, to stand out. Be a beam of love. Be a voice for good. Be an example of joy in the beautiful realm of mother earth.

Where Kathie lives there is an unusual snow on the ground this morning. She is struck by how quiet it is outide without the usual hustle and bustle of a workday morning. We've given her some peaceful music to distract her from the New York Times and bring her to us a little earlier than usual. Only to remind her and all of you to savor those moments of quiet and stillness, however they come to you. Savor the moments of not-doing. You do so much. It is perfectly fine to rest. It is perfectly fine to allow the noise in your head to cease. AAAHHHHH. Stillness.

When you open us to us, you will feel happy. If you sit quietly and ask, we will answer. If you try it and feel sad, it's just a little grief over not having felt us with you before. If you open up to us and feel anxious, just breathe through it. Keep trying. Sit quietly, breathe, and ask. We will answer.

You know the truth. You know the truth deep inside. You know your connection to the universal life force energy. You know the power of love, which is the basis of everything. You know that you have many, many lifetimes on earth and in other dimensions to learn and grow, to contribute to the movement from dark to light. Relax, trust, love. Everything is fine.

Whatever it is you want, you don't have to have it right now. Whatever it is you're waiting for, doesn't have to happen right now. You have everything you need to be happy. You have everything you need to be content. You have everything you need to enjoy life. Spending any energy on not-having gets in the way of that enjoyment. Enjoy is an active verb. Fill your life with joy, fill your heart with joy. It's not something that happens to you, it's something you do.
