Celebrate amidst the chaos on earth, amidst the darkness, pain and suffering, because this type of turmoil results from the light attempting to rise to the surface of human hearts. Every perspective wants to be acknowledged now. Everyone wants to be seen as having validity to their being. And everyone wants to be understood as a creation worth of love.
Love, dear ones is not always a ‘warm fuzzy feeling.’ Real love is an acknowledgment of the truth – that there is one Creator and one light that animates all beings… whether they realize it or not. Love says, “I see beyond your behaviors, your thoughts, your appearance.. deep into the essence of your being. I can love that light. I can love that spark of Divinity. I can love who you really are… whether or not you are even aware of that truth inside of yourself.”
In a very practical way, Love can look at even those who hurt your feelings, who treat you unkindly, who lie, cheat, and steal, and say, “I know who you really are! I choose to focus on the spark of Divinity within you, no matter how small or how dim. I will not dignify your dark behaviors, your ill thoughts, you unkind wishes. I will engage with you in a way that is healthy for me, for I respect my own light whether you respect yours or not. I will love the truth of your being, but I will not dignify your darkness.” And then dear ones you send them on their way with wishes that someday they too will see their light.
You do not have to dance with souls who do not embody kindness. You do not have to allow abusive behaviors in your life. And as you become firmly rooted and comfortable in the reality that it is healthy and wise to honor the light within yourself, you will notice that it is easier to love even your so-called “enemies.” In truth, no soul is your enemy. All souls are your family. Just as in your human families we encourage you to honor the light within all, but as well to create healthy, loving boundaries that honor your own.
The world is indeed in a bit of chaos right now, but you need not dance in the darkness. You can choose with your free will to focus on all that is good, beautiful, and true. You can imagine those who have left the planet, even in the most unthinkably hard ways, happy in heaven, being received with love and celebration. You can imagine beautiful nature springing up and growing over war torn areas, or even more beautiful cities being built, because in time this is what will occur. Darkness, by its very nature, is temporary. Love is eternal.
