My dear friends, we love you so very much. So many of you worry about making time for your 'spiritual' practices and yet we would contend that every dish you wash, every breath you breathe, and indeed every word that you utter is part of a spiritual practice. Life itself is a spiritual practice, and you can practice bringing the truth of your spirit into each and every word and deed, each and every day.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. You long for a deeper relationship with God. You long to feel loved. You search and seek, and yet God is all around you dear ones. God is in your friends and family, in those who challenge you and those who support you. God is in the sky above and the ground beneath your feet. God is in the air you breathe, the food you eat, the roof over your head, and the pillows upon which you rest your head.
My dear friends, we love you all so very much. First and foremost realize that you are so very loved. You do not have to merit God's love with holiness, happiness, or even piety, dear ones, for God's love is a constant. So very many of you put pressure on yourselves to be pleasant at all times. You try to control your feelings and although dear ones, we do certainly advise you to take responsibilty for your words and actions, we know that it is impossible to dictate your feelings, for they are messages from your soul.
My dear friends we love you so very much. As you watch your world in chaos understand that you can be at peace. As you watch the arguments and diversified opinions, know that in the long run there is only one mind, that allows for all perspectives, and that is God's mind. There is only one love seeking to be expressed, acknowledged, given, and received through all humanity and that is God's love.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. As you continue your manifestation process, remember to stay in a space of gratitude. You will have difficulty manifsting if you focus upon lack. If you can't pay your bills be grateful for the roof over your head and food you eat and as you give thanks, expect more.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. Celebrate Springtime! It is time upon your earth for movement, change, growth, and new life. And dear ones, this means that each one of you, if you are willing to grow, will experience the light of your truth pushing up through the darker beliefs that have held you captive and bursting into light. When you find yourself in challenging circumstances, ask yourself, "Where am I forgetting to trust God, to love God, to feel God within my own heart and to bring that love to the surface.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. As you proceed along the path of manifesting your dreams, remember that your manifestations will work so much more easily if you manifest from your heart and soul, rather than from a need to pacify your fears or control your lives. If you want a job because you need money, first ask spirit to help you manifest security and joyous expression because these are the underlying soul level desires.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. Understand that in this year of movement and change, it is especially important to allow your feelings to move within you. So many of you have been going strong for so long, that you need to stop, rest, breathe, and feel your hearts deeply. Graceful movement in your outer life is always a reflection of honoring the movements inside of you.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. As you begin the year of 2008 we wish for each and every one of you a life lived authentically – directed by God, intuited through your hearts, and guided by angels. It is a year of being clear on what is of greatest importance to you, not what should be of importance or what the world tells you is important, but rather what is important to you.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. As you enter into a season of light understand that your celebrations, dear ones, are all about the miracle of light coming into and staying lit in the darkness. You dear ones are the lights of the world for you are the ones who have agreed to be loving even when others are not, to be kind even when others are rude, to walk the higher path when others don't even know it exists.
