What if every single thing that occurs, no matter how it may seem, is the right thing? If you could know that all that befalls, no matter how distorted, has its value, how fraught with tension and worry could you then be? If all accidents were not accidents, if all crimes were not crimes, if all illness were not illness, how anxiety-ridden could you remain? If you knew that everything, no matter how uncalled for, served a good purpose, what would you bemoan? If you didn’t ask why and try and try to figure out the ins and outs of events, how much time and energy would you conserve?
If you didn’t have to be in dismay at anything, what then would you occupy yourself with? What would you rue? Anything?
If you took everything in your stride, how differently might you walk?
If you did not resent anything, how would you like it?
If you welcomed all seasons, what would you resist?
If you accepted, even welcomed all circumstances and all people, would you be further ahead or behind?
It is obvious, and yet you do not see what you don’t see.
You have maintained that you must resist what befalls unless you see what befalls as a windfall.
Look not so much for grades. Someone imposes an A on you, and you are happy. Someone imposes a C on you, and you are unhappy. Someone imposes an E on you, and you are desperate, or you say you don’t care at all. However, you do seem to learn others’ evaluations of you and call them your own, as if evaluations were law, as if someone’s seal of approval or disapproval were gold, or as if you were branded and that was all there is to it.
In the relative world, you are mobile Beings, beloveds. You can go up and down. Let no one else be the lever that propels you up or down. No one else is to be the sayer of you. You and I are the sayer of you. What I say counts, and if you agree with Me, then what you say counts. If you have bought someone else’s opinion of you, you bought poorly. Opinions are not to be taken as gospel. Anyway, opinions are here today and gone tomorrow. You might say opinions are changeable like the weather.
There is an alcove in your heart that knows the truth about you, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Know you are worth something. Know you are worth a lot. If you are not convinced of that, then reveal yourself so you will know that My appraisal of you is absolutely correct. You are what I say. Do not be the last one to know.
Armed with this information, let’s see what wonderful deeds you perform. If you do not know what you are made of, find out now. Find out fast, and get yourself high in your estimation. If you think you aren’t worth much, how will you deal with life? If you think you are worth shining My light, how will you deal with life then? True, life is dealt you, and yet you also deal the cards. Deal from the top, beloveds. Know you are tops.
You have an image of yourself, and you act accordingly. If you know you are king, you move in the world like a king. If you know you are a wastrel, you will prove it. Know that you are the Child of God. Know it. Know you are here for Me. Know you are My representative, and then you will represent Me as I would have you represent Me.
I understand a lot, yet it is hard for Me to grasp that you would choose to represent less than the Truth of Who you are when you can represent greater. Does this make any sense to you?
