It is up to you to open your heart and your mind. Ultimately, it is your job. You are the key. Expand your heart. Expand your mind. Expand the world you live in.
Wait for no one. It is you who has the key to fit the lock that allows you entrance to freedom, and freedom means expansion. Freedom can’t mean confinement. Freedom can’t mean the freedom to make yourself smaller and less noticeable. Freedom has to mean to untie bounds and to break yourself free from the bonds that bind you. What is lack of freedom but imprisonment? There are many kinds of imprisonment. The mind can be imprisoned. The spirit too. The mind can be in lock-up. You can be the imprisoner of yourself.
My desire for you is your freedom within so that you soar above the world. Accept the freedom to take off, to free yourself from inhibiting yourself from your God-given self-expression. Self-expression beats self-repression any day of the week. I speak of your unlimiting your own Self-Awareness. Wake up, darlings.
Note the thought you wake up with in the morning. You may wake up with a thought from a sleep dream that pushes through. You may wake up with a random thought. There are thoughts that pursue you. Wake up to your thoughts. The way the sun breaks through to the dawn, the way, when you crack open an egg shell, a whole bright orange egg yolk appears. Your thoughts are lining up for you to take care of them. You can’t push back these thoughts forever. Recognizing your thoughts is how you take care of them. You allow thoughts you have repressed to take their place in the world.
One thought after another is waiting for you to address. Most often it is you who has infringed upon your thoughts. You may wait to address thoughts until you feel stronger. Look, a thought is waiting for you to address it. This thought is no longer to be put aside as if it does not exist. No thought of yours is to be kicked aside or told to wait for another day. When you just take an honest look at a troubling thought you don’t want to look at, you can whisk away the troublesome aspect of the thought, and be freed from it.
Otherwise, the thought, no matter how much you try to submerge it, will persist in being addressed, rather like a virus that will make itself known. If the thought is there, it is there for you to nod to. Sometimes that is all you have to do, and then you are done. Face your thoughts. Wake up your thoughts. Tell them it’s okay for them to speak.
You may not have noticed thoughts that seek to wake you up. They are not the plague. They are your friends. Listen to your thoughts. Once listened to, your thought is heard, and it is reduced to size, and then there is another once submerged thought that can make its way through. Acknowledge your recurring thoughts. They have a message for you.
The message could be: “I am not well thought-of. I am disrespected in this world. I am not given my full value or value at all.”
Dear Ones, it is you who is not respecting yourself enough. Acknowledgment may be all it takes so you put your shoulders back and stand straight. And your whole demeanor to the world is changed. Treat yourself differently, and now, somehow, without effort, the world starts to look at you and give you your due. The key is how you look at yourself.
It is not your ego I am referring to. It is not vanity We are dallying with. Not at all. It is you who has to stand up and respect yourself. There is no other music you have to face. Now, finally, address yourself and give you your due.
