You Are Such a Mix

God said:

You are often such a mix of owning the world and yet not belonging in it. You ride a high horse at the same time as you feel lost. You are very certain while, at the same time, you are very uncertain. You know just how things should be, and yet you are bewildered. You contradict yourself. You emit bravado, and you carry a sense of helplessness.

If you were not so sure how life should be, you would feel stronger. You are wobbly in your certainty.

Being so certain is a good way to create obstacles. If life does not meet your standards, then you are rebuffed. Then you are swimming upstream. Then you are surrounded by brambles. You manufacture dissatisfaction.

You become particular. There is a fine line between cooperating in life and accepting the status quo. There is a fine line between awareness and dissatisfaction.

You can see the foibles and not be overrun by them. Errors in life do not have to trample you. You can rise above them. You can simply come from a different vantage.

When you are on the third floor, you aren’t on the first floor. There is a different view from your window. The placement of events is the same, but your perspective is different. You are perhaps less influenced, less overcome, less swayed, more independent.

If you see mayhem, you do not say it is all right, but nor do you add to it. There is no advantage in being upset. Being upset and raising your voice don’t chase ignorance away.

We are talking about ignorance. This must be so. Who in awareness would create havoc? Who would disturb the peace unless he thought he had no choice? What is that but ignorance? A whole field of flowers is laid out before him, and yet he sees no alternative but to see undergrowth and to act rashly.

It is no virtue to be dissatisfied. It is no virtue to complain. It is no virtue to be distressed. In a flood, you seek higher ground. In life, seek a higher vision. Get out of the morass. Climb a ladder. By example, you will help others climb with you.

You are My emissary. Represent Me well. Not affectedly, but well. Perceive greater, and you will personify greater. As you see, so you are. It is not necessary that you take a dim view.

There are wrongs in life. Unfairness abounds. But goodness and mercy also abound, and you will be merciful towards those who see awry. You will respond higher. You know you are not in a boxing match on Earth. You know you are not a boxer. Rather than fight so much against discordance, create concordance. Do not throw firecrackers into the fray. Look at the sun and bring some light into the arena. Open the door and let some light in.

Be glad that you are one who can find fault and not exult in it. It is not negating Truth to look for a higher road and to stay on it. Otherwise, you bemoan the past and present and don’t think well of the future either.

Perhaps you set the mood for the world. What kind of mood would you like to set? Start now.

Perhaps you are the teacher of the class. Why would you set a disgruntled mood, pointing out every digression, every slip of the pen or mouth, or will you raise the vibration of where you find yourself?

You are the teacher wherever you are. A teacher is more than a corrector. A teacher is an uplifter. What does the world need more, correction or upliftment?
