Be an Alchemist

God said:

Everything you choose in life is your choice. Here's what I mean:

If you are sad, you chose sadness. If you can choose sadness, you can choose happiness. 

Your life is based on your choices. Under all circumstances, you have choices to make. Your experience and the world itself may tell you that under certain circumstances, you can only be unhappy. To believe that or not believe that is also a choice you make.

If you can choose anger, you can choose peace. You may say you can't help anger. You may say you do not choose it, but suddenly it appears and seems to take you over -- your emotions, your thoughts, your blood pressure. Do you think you can only be a fall guy to anger?

Beloveds, if you did not choose anger, then who did? Who can choose it for you, dear ones? Any Tom, Dick, or Harry?

Look, if someone in the world has turned anger into peace, what prevents you from doing the same?

You may say anger is your life experience. You may say you have to be an alchemist to lower the volume of your anger into peace.

I say: Be an alchemist then. You can even turn anger into love and understanding. It is not only Great Spiritual Ones who have done this. Even ordinary-seeming human beings have translated their animosity into love.

In the world, this is often called forgiveness, yet I repeat and repeat: What makes you so high and mighty as to deign to forgive someone else for his level of consciousness? Who do you think you are?

Because someone else may have put himself in jeopardy, you don't have to join him. You don't have to. You just don't. The so-called other addresses you from his own anger or sense of deprivation and slant on life. What -- are you going to model yourself after the unhappiness he has drawn to himself?

He may think he has had the last word with you. Purposefully or randomly, he offended you and hurt your heart or even injured someone close to you. Whether chosen or at random, it's the same difference to you, for, in world terms, he has stolen peace from you, and you let him.

When you come down to it, do you want this unfortunate soul to impart his words onto you and leave you racked with the equivalent of his anger and hate?

Is this how you show him you're more powerful? Is this how you defeat his suffering soul at your own expense? If you now see as he sees, and you see issues of right and wrong as black and white and offensive, how does that serve you or anyone? Are you lifting the world or lowering it?

There isn't anything you can't do. You can even let go of thoughts and emotions that do not benefit anyone in the world, or the world, and certainly not yourself. If you want an enemy, it's quite easy to find one. Better to align with peace and freedom.

If this person hurt a loved one of yours, he certainly had no right. No matter his reasons which seemed valid to him at the moment or he is totally unaware of how he has infringed on you, he had no right.

By the same token, you have no right to want to turn the tables on him.

The only person to change is yourself. You are not to be vengeful or unkind under any circumstance. In your thoughts, words, and deeds, your only recourse is to rise above circumstances.

Granted, it is hard for you to let go of petty heartache when someone doesn't come up to your standards. I have to ask you: Who appointed you the watchdog of life. Be the fulfiller. Let go of what ails you.

It seems to be all habit, doesn't it, how you react? Now, then, change your habits.
