Joy is your birthright, and joy is to be found in the moment when you accept that what is in front of you, right here, right now is exactly what your soul needs in this moment to learn more about love! This is a difficult concept for many. What if you have financial woes? What if someone has just hurt your feelings? What if you are in a miserable relationship or surrounded by family that does not understand you.
in those circumstances your human mind is likely to say, “I cannot be joyful. Life is not as I wish.” Yet, at the very same time, your soul looks at these circumstances much as a child looks at a puzzle. The soul says to itself, “I am stuck in the moment, but if I just find a way to turn towards love, then I will learn, grow into greater truth, and create movement in my life! If I can just figure out how to bring love into this situation then it’s going to be so much fun!.I can’t wait to find the answer!”
We realize this sounds outlandish to the human mind which is programmed to label, judge, sort, and categorize life. But while the mind says, “How terrible,” the heart says, “Opportunity.”
Next time you find yourself in undesirable circumstances. pray and ask, “How can I bring more love into this moment.” Say you have financial woes. Perhaps you can count your blessings, look at all you do have, express faith in abundance and tap into the vast reservoirs of gifts and talents you have within. Suppose someone has been unkind. Perhaps you can be kind to yourself, walk away, and “forgive them for they know not what they do,” or at least make a determination to focus on anything kinder. Suppose you are in an unkind relationship or among unkind family members. Can you kindly walk away from their unpleasant behaviors or, if you are stuck in their presence, imagine allowing the angels to work through your heart and send them invisible light?
There are always ways to bring more love into the situation that will feel wonderful to you as well. This discussion isabout loving yourselves dear ones – allowing yourselves to feel love flowing to you, in you, and through you.
When you realize that you are instruments for God’s light, God’s love, and God’s truth, life can become a playful game in which you seek to solve the puzzle of, “How can I bring love into this situation – for myself first, then for others?”
There will be times when you will be profoundly human and that is absolutely fine. Allow yourself to feel your feelings – even that is a loving choice. And if you fall away from love, get back in the game, and allow yourself to experience the love that is always there for you.
