Certainly you know that when someone creates, he or she is in joy. Creating is self-expression. I expressed Myself in joy when I created you. You are My expression expressed. I wanted you. I want you still.
I see you as you really are. You see yourself in bits and pieces. Too often you see yourself as failing. I would love My Created sons and daughters to get over the idea that they are some kind of blasphemy or fool or miscreant.
Perhaps you are over-conscientious. Could it be that there is something in you that wants to give more and more and more to be in the image of a giver? You have to remember that you personally are not needed. You have felt you are needed. Who is needed? I AM.
Be careful that you do not aggrandize your position in life. You are worth a lot. You are worth gold, yet you do not decrease your own value in order to serve others and increase their perceived value.
You can give away too much of yourselves. Sometimes you like to give away too much. Even as you know you are overdoing, you feel impelled or compelled to give away too much of your own hide.

You can intend to be many things. You can intend to be perfect, and then you have to forget about it! You can’t wrap yourself up in your intention, for then you hold on too tight. You have to let go so that your intention has breathing room. Grasping isn’t the way. Letting go is the way. Sit back and look forward to what today will bring.
Freedom – you are calling for freedom. Freedom doesn’t mean doing whatever you want whenever you want, did you think it did?
Oh, of course, if you have Saturday afternoon off, you can play golf or hang out at home. Treat yourself right. Take a day to do what you like when you like. You deserve.
Freedom means to move freely. It means to be agile in body. Go for it.
Freedom means to think freely. It means to be agile in mind. Go for it.
Freedom means to be spiritually free. Be light in heart. It means to reach for the sky. Go for it.
My children cry out to Me how unhappy they are. You, yourself, as a matter of fact, might say:
