You don’t have to put yourself under great emotional strain. Why would you lock yourself out of your own Home on Earth and take away peace from yourself. Forgo stress.
Patience and impatience are not as harmless as you may think. Impatience earmarks Life as a catastrophe. Impatience considers current circumstances as Almighty. On the other hand, patience is having other recourses and resources. Patience sees clearly.
Beloveds, I hear you. I hear you say:
“Dear God, what a God You are. You don’t despair. You don’t lock any doors. You unlock the doors within me that I lock to myself.
“I put myself into a trance as if the Meaning of Life can only be temporary. The temporary may be likened to a coat of many colors that I cover my soul with. I make this coat all-important, as if I have no say about it when the actuality is that I have all the say in the world about it. I hold this coat to me and wrap it around me as if it were Life itself.
Everyone has a unique story. Born into the same family, both parents the same, no two children are alike. For all you can tell, the children could have come together from the ends of Earth, yet somehow they find themselves living their childhoods together. As you may see it, it is a puzzle that children so disparate could have ever somehow come to live together. It seems impossible, and it also seems destined.
Whatever you have on your mind today, whatever may be weighing you down, whatever may occupy you, let it go.
Unless a thought gives you happiness, why have it? What merit is there for you to worry this and worry that? Come now, come with Me, and enjoy your voyage on Earth. You are here for joy, so enjoy.
On the ship you sail, there may well be two conversations going on. One conversation may make your heart soar. The other conversation objects to life in the world as it is. Which conversation do you want to sit in on, be part of, to practice?
You are on a rung of a ladder. You may hesitate to go higher. No matter how much you may ask Me to propel you higher, you may pull back. Why? If you let go of all your attachment to boundaries, perhaps you wonder what you might open yourself to then.
What might you have to give up, and what might this perceived loss take away from you? What if it costs you plenty, and you find yourself without any recourse?
Once truly unbounded, you are unbounded forever, and there is no going back. You won’t want to.
The act of being a human Being doesn’t strike you as a walk in the park, yet, here you are. Here you are, a high flier without an airplane. There are many ways to describe the process of living on Earth as a human being.
Sometimes you feel that Life, as it appears, is too much for you. I understand how you feel, yet the fear conclusions you come to are amiss.
Your body and mind may suffer, may suffer greatly, yet it is your mind that keeps your suffering lively. Such a delicate sensitive picture your mind paints of you. All the while, the Truth is that you, the indelible you, is Eternal. What you feel you go through in the world, impinges upon your soul not a whit. What you feel you go through in the world is false support for what is fallacy in the first place.
