Are we on a mission?

Dear God

Sometimes people don’t realize how lucky they are, as sometimes I did, I didn’t realize how lucky I was to have a positive energy, a positive voice always telling me the right way to do things.
I have my complete family, I had a great education, and I will have it for the next years and so on, till I end being a professional, I have good friends, I have the opportunity to travel almost around the world and finally, im a healthy person. To appreciate that won’t be enough.
I know you always listen to my prays, because I know you are always sitting next to when im resting, and you are always following me, when im walking. To appreciate that won’t be enough.
I know were im standing but sometimes I don’t know were im going, I believe you are always giving me advice of what I choose and always letting me realize how important it is to do it well, to have regrets on it.
But sometimes I ask myself, although I have all this good things in life, Why Me?, I know every human being in this world has a mission, including myself as a citizen of a third world country, I have a mission and a very important one, but, what about those little boys and girls dying of starvation in Africa?, do they have a mission in life, what kind of mission to be suffering like that?.
What about Francisco, who cannot run, or even worse, he cannot walk , who cannot do what normal people do because of his muscular dystrophy, does he has a mission?
Have you chosen me for something?
Im trying to find out my mission right here, right now. But my wish is to end this war, would I be able to do it? , would I be able to find the almost impossible cure for cancer and HIV? Would I be able to avoid children abuse?
My dear God, your love keeps me searching in the right place because I know that when I fall you will be there to help me stand up and keep going. Help me stop in the right place and complete those goals that I have in mind, to be a better person and to have what I’ve always wished next to your love and comprehension.
To appreciate all the things you do to me and the people that surround me is not enough, that’s why everyday I grant you great part of my acts of faith, to see if maybe I can complete all that I owe you in this life.

With love


God to Brissa,

Yes, beloved Brissa. It is enough. Your intention is enough. Your love and gratitude are enough. You are a beacon light in the world. You are My light shining on Me.
By the writing of your question, you have shifted the axis of the world.
You know how to love and to care. You are a missionary in the world, a missionary of love. Sitting by a window in your parlor, looking out on the world, you accomplish love, and you already know that love accomplishes.
Now, as for conditions in the world, for the hungry children, for the abused, for Francisco, you are not to worry about them. Are they not in My hands too? They are in your love, but not in your hands. Give them to Me.
Please know that your love reaches them, and your love heals. As a great physician, your love will heal. Your hands will be skilled, but it is your heart in tandem with Mine that will heal. By your thoughts right now, you are giving healing.
Through your vision and gratitude, you serve Me well. By your desire to serve, you serve. Everything is taken care of now. Your whole life is set. You have determined it.
You are a great warrior of love. You are a maintainer of love. You are a leader of it. You are in the forefront. You are a healer of hearts, beloved daughter. I ask no more.
Yes, you are on a mission.
On the surface, your mission is greater than another’s, but that is only on the surface. In realms that you, on Earth, cannot yet be conscious of, the least mission of another is as great as yours. Yes, Francisco serves Me. What you see on the physical is only what you see on the physical.
Be gentle with yourself, as gentle as you are with Francisco. Do you begin to see already how he serves? He is a meeting place of hearts. You can regard Francisco highly.
Serve Me. Serve the world, and release all sense of obligation that you carry. It is love rather than obligation that you are made of. You are obliged to love but not to be obligated. Carry love and not obligation. You give more because you have more to give, but, in truth, you give what you have to give, and so you and Francisco and everyone give equally. Carry light, not burden. Yes, you are responsible, but do not carry the responsibility. Remember I AM, and I care for the world, and I care for you, and you are My responsibility, not your own.
You please Me well. Of course, it is not a question of My being pleased. Being pleased is too little. Let Us just simply say that I love you, and you are My love realized.
I bless you now. I bless you to your future which is My present I give to the world.
All is well. Go in peace. Your heart is true.

I thought I'd say this.

I thought that was just beautiful. Just beautiful. I was really touched. Deeply touched. It makes sense. It made sense. We're all on a mission. There are no good people and bad people, right? We're all just people. Why is it so hard to learn that? Does God see Christian or Jew or Buddhist or Moslem? Does God see Frenchman, Russian, American, or Chinese? Does God weigh a person's income? Does God consider how old you are, how pretty, handsome you might be?

Do you think any of that is You?

Not to God, right?

What are You concerned with?
Do you think all that stuff matters?
To Him?

The Purity and Beauty of One 17-year Old

God rewarded me already by giving me the privilege of reading your
question, Brissa.

I am humbled by your question.

I hope you read Adrachin's inspiration that he posted under Other Spiritual Messages today. Your question to God fulfills it mightily. It is about being grateful which you certainly demonstrate. Your parents must be so proud of you. I know I am. I feel that the future of the world is assured when our youth is like you.

And, Stefan, you too knew how inspiring this 17-year old is. And you said so. Bravo.

Bernie Siegel also has a beautiful response to your question, Brissa. I am trying to get him to post it himself.

With love and blessings,



For Brissa

Many years ago my great grandfather told me of the persecution he experienced in Russia which led him to come to this country. He said the Cossacks would pursue him at night, when he was out teaching, and slash him with their sabers. One night he was on the hill above his village with his rabbi, the Baal Shem Tov. As they looked down they could see the Cossacks riding down and killing their Jewish brethren. They might have felt the same had they seen their loved ones being taken away to become slaves in a foreign land.

My great grandfather heard the rabbi say, "I wish I were God."

He asked, "Do you want to be God so you can change the bad into the good?"

"No, I wouldn't change anything. I want to be God so I can understand."

Remember our present problems are not new to mankind. Ninety percent of the natives of South America died when the explorers brought infectious diseases to their continent that they had no immunity to and forty per cent of Europeans died during plagues of the past. Man made wars and holocausts have taken millions of lives and with today's destructive weapons we are more of a threat to each other than are infectious diseases, which we can learn to resist. The question is not, will there be difficulties and threats to our existence, but how will we deal with them and what can we learn from them. How can they become blessings to society, as a life threatening disease is to an individual, by teaching us about the meaning of our life and existence?

When I was a young boy several of my friends became seriously ill and one was hit by a car while bicycling to my house. When they all died I asked my father, "Why did God make a world where terrible things happen? Why didn't God make a world free of diseases, accidents and problems?"

He said, "To learn lessons." I didn't like that answer and asked my rabbi, teacher and others. They said things like, "God knows, Why not?, Who knows?, That's life, To bring you closer to God." Some were honest enough to just say, "I don't know." This didn't leave me feeling satisfied or enlightened. When I told my mother what they said she answered, "Nature contains the wisdom you seek. Perhaps a walk in the woods would help you to find out why. Go and ask the old lady on the hill that some call a witch. She is wise in the ways of the world."

As I walked up the hill I saw a holly tree had fallen onto the path. As I tried to pull it aside the sharp leaves cut my hands. So I put on gloves and was able to move it and clear the path. A little further along the path I heard a noise in the bushes and saw a duck caught in the plastic from a six pack. I went over and freed the duck and watched him fly off. None of this seemed enlightening.

Further up the hill I saw five boys lying in a tangled heap in the snow. I asked them if they were playing a game and warned them the cold weather could lead to frostbite if they didn't move. They said they were not playing but were so tangled they didn't know which part belonged to whom and were afraid they'd break something if they moved. I removed one of the boy's shoes, took a stick and jabbed it into his foot.

He yelled, "Ow."

I said, "That's your foot now move it." I continued to jab until all the boys were separated but still no enlightenment.

As I reached the top of the hill I saw, in front of the old woman's cabin, a deer sprawled on the ice of a frozen pond . She kept slipping and sliding and couldn't stand up. I went out, calmed her and then helped her off the ice by holding her up and guiding her to the shore. I expected her to run away but instead of running away she and several other deer followed me to the house. I wasn't sure why they were following me so I ran towards the house. When I reached the porch and felt safe I turned and the deer and I looked into each others eyes before I went into the house.

I told the woman why I had come and she said, "I have been watching you walk up the hill and I think you have your answer."

"What answer?"

"Many things happened on your walk to teach you the lessons you needed to learn. One is that emotional and physical pain are necessary or we cannot protect ourselves and our bodies. Think of why you put on gloves and how you helped those boys. Pain helps us to know and define ourselves and respond to our needs and the needs of our loved ones. You did what made sense. You helped those in front of you by doing what they needed when they needed it.

"The deer followed you to thank you, their eyes said it all, for being compassionate in their time of trouble. What you have learned is that we are here to continue God's work. If God had made a perfect world it would be a magic trick, not creation, with no meaning or place for us to learn and create. Creation is work. We are the ones who will have to create the world you are hoping for. A world where evil is to not respond to the person with the disease or pain whether it be emotional or physical. God has given us work to do. We will still grieve when we experience losses but we will also use our pain to help us know ourselves and respond to the needs of others. That is our work as our Creator intended it to be. God wants us to know that life is a series of beginnings not endings. Just as graduations are not terminations but commencements.

Let me tell you about people who have been my teachers. The first, a teenager sexually abused by his parents who now has AIDS. When he was about to commit suicide by jumping in front of a subway train I asked him why he didn't kill his parents instead. He said, "I never wanted to be like them." Love has sustained him and he is alive today."

Another young man with a life threatening illness said, "What is evil is not the disease. Many great creative works will come from individual suffering but what is evil is to not respond with compassion to the person with the illness."

An example are parents I know who because they had a young child die are improving the lives of other children and raising funds to find a cure for the disease which took their child so other children will not have to die as their child did.

How do we turn our afflictions into blessings? How do we use them to help us complete ourselves and our work and understand the place for love, tolerance and kindness? How can we learn as Jacob did from his experience of wrestling with an angel? Justice and mercy must both be a part of how we treat those who terrorize because when you understand you can forgive and when you can forgive you do not hate and when you do not hate you are capable of loving and love is the most powerful weapon known to man. It is not an accident that we say, kill with kindness, love thine enemies and torment with tenderness.

As Golda Meir said, "The only way to eliminate war is to love our children more than we hate our enemies." When we raise a generation of children with compassion and when parents let their children know they are loved, teachers truly educate them and not just inform them and the clergy let them know they are children of God we will have a planet made up of the family of man where our differences are used for recognition and not persecution. Words and experts cannot be our Lord. Abraham did not bargain or refuse his Lord's request and Jesus, who was capable of performing miracles, did not jump down off the cross to impress everyone with who he was. Our Creator must be who we have faith in so we can live as Abraham and Jesus did fearing only separation from their Lord. Think of what Noah experienced too. He didn't argue with God over what was about to happen. I think he knew that living was more difficult than dying and that we are all here to learn what it is to hurt and be hurt and only then will we be perfect enough to love and be loved.

In closing let me say that as a surgeon I know something you may not; that we are all the same color inside and members of one family. To paraphrase Rabbi Carlebach, let us hope that some day all the Cains, will realize what they have done, and ask for forgiveness of the Abels they have killed. In that moment we will all rise and become one family accepting that we are here to love and be loved. Until that moment may you accept and learn from your mortality what is truly important in the time of your life. Rather than from further disasters.

Just some word on that one......
