Back in the olden days (before the angels woke us up) we thought it
was up to us to set the course of our life and that we had to work
very, very hard to make sure that we didnít make a mistake and that
we were 100% committed to our life work every day. Today we are a
lot easier on ourselves and consequently life is easier on us. We do
our best to stop striving and to align ourselves with Godís will. It
has worked so much better!
The Angels Speake:
It is interesting to us to see you work so hard at living when it is
really one of the easiest things you could ever do. Living is not
hard work. Living is simple because in order to live, all you have
to do is BE. Just BE. You do not have to change a thing about
yourself, do something else, learn something more, or act in a
different manner. What you are today is perfect.
Godís plan for you is also perfect, for you and He together have
planned your life to maximize every opportunity for growth and
learning. It is a time of living out what you have already begun,
not only in other lives, but also within your inner knowing of what
is good and proper for you today. Your life is not a completion; it
is a continuation and as such shall unfold as is best.
Human beings want to have a list of Things To Do so that you will
have a sense of accomplishment at the end of each day. We do not
care about such things. All we would wish for you is that you have a
sense of gratitude. Gratitude in the spiritual sense means that you
have noticed your place on earth and how much God has given you so
that you may live out your life according to Godís will.
How can you do this without going crazy? How can you operate your
life and let go of it at the same time? How can you NOT be totally
involved in every decision and every action in every phase of your
The nature of man is to achieve. Its okay to achieve. But you can
STOP STRIVING. Yes, stop striving to be something different than
what you are. Stop striving to do more, spend more, eat more, work
more, play more. When you stop striving life happens in divine
order. You will be able to live your life peacefully in the now
instead of trying to change events to suit your opinions. Striving
stops the flow of events. When you stop striving, you open to more
possibilities and life will get easier rather than harder.
Just for today let God take care of you. Just BE.
