“Do not be afraid to trust yourself, to think your own thoughts, to walk gently and easily toward your goal.  The One who is with you speaks not from without, but from within.” Hugh Prather

We think we are what others declare us to be.  We think we are our jobs and our place in the world, mother, father, sister, brother, child, friend, employer, employee, environmentalist, teacher, doctor, and on and on.  The fact is those are the things we do. We feel either empowered or deflated by another’s reaction to what we do, believing that what we do is who we are.  If we were to focus on what we truly are, eternal spirit, Child of a Loving God, a being of light and love, a healer in the world, an instrument of God’s peace – if we put those thoughts of us first and foremost, an amazing thing would happen.  What we do would be done without stress, with loving grace, guilt free with time expanding to accommodate us instead of us trying frantically to accommodate time.  If we put our truth up front, and believed and trusted in this truth, life would flow smoothly and we would lift others up to our level of peace and love and joy. Nothing anyone said or did would disturb our peace, because we would have no need to judge others or protect ourselves.  We would be guilt-free because we would no longer judge ourselves. 

Your exercise would be to look at all the things you think you are and surrender them one by one to God.  And then look at all the things you think you want and surrender them to God. This does not mean you would not still appear to be the same person, doing all the things you do, nor does it mean you have to sacrifice your things. It simply means that now you would be doing everything with the Love of God in your heart. And you would own your things from a place of love and abundance instead of scarcity and fear of loss.  It is unavoidable that we be peaceful and joyous because those experiences are our true nature.  We can deny our truth for a long, long time, but eventually we must join ourselves at our highest level and be one with all the Universe as we were created to be.  It is inevitable.  Why fight it?  Simply let go of all that you do not want and open to everything you do.  You don’t have to do anything, but simply be willing to be happy.  All God asks of us is our willingness to let Him be our Guide through this world and He will do the rest.

May you walk in peace today knowing you are blessed and a blessing in the world.
