In the Light of God
There is no owning, and, in truth, there is no owing. Everyone on Earth is a free Being. You are free to be glad for all you have been given. You are also free to be unhappy for what you have not been given. You do have all manner of free choice.
And, yet, you do not choose for yourself alone. You cannot keep what you choose to yourself. You choose for all.
Today someone is going to copy you. Be worth copying.
When you are appreciative, others will be too.
When you are disapproving, others will disapprove too.
This is how you have responsibility for more than yourself. This is how you have responsibility.
A leader is someone who takes responsibility. He does not sit and wait. He gets up and gives consideration to all. To think of himself alone is too little for a child of God.
Hallow-ed be My name. Never was it said: Self-centered be thy name. It will be of use to you to be centered on My Name, for am I not the Truth of you? Am I not your Source? Are you not made in My image? Then be it. Be it right now, today.
What is there that can prevent you from being a Great One? Only a thought of yours. And, so, now think of new thoughts. Embrace them. Embrace Me.
The world sells you drink and tells you to drink responsibly. I give you life, and I ask you live it, the life I give you, responsibly. I did not give you life just once and be done with it. Every moment I give you life. I give you Eternal Life, yet, right now, We speak of your life on this Earth. Live with love.
The Great Ones lived love. They cared as they breathed. They took responsibility for their own lives and for the lives of all on Earth. This was not a burden, you understand. This is where they were. The Great Ones did as they wanted. They gave of themselves because that is where they were, that is where their consciousness was. They let go of the past and strode into the present, and so they raised the rope of life on Earth. The Great Ones looked to Me, and that is how they served all.
The Great Ones gave thought to all. They walked for all. They talked for all. They opened doors for all. They put others before themselves, not as a sacrifice, no, not at all, but as a gift. At their stage of consciousness, they could not do otherwise. They loosed their hold on themselves. They did not erase themselves. They were powerful Beings who recognized their place in the field of life. You have the same place. Whatever the Great Ones did, you can do. First, you have to think of it. I have long thought of it.
You are to be a leader of men. It is for you to take initiative. It is for you to lead your life in the light of God. It is for you to shed light upon the world who is so desirous of light. All that you desire to be given to you is for you to give. It is for you to replenish the world. It is for you to regain and restore faith, hope, and charity. You are to be a living example. Great does not mean famous, you understand. Who were greater servants than those who were Great? Who were more humble?
