In life, be honest. Do not dissemble. Be honest with yourself, and be honest with others.
Let all pretense fly away. Be basic. Truth on all levels is very powerful. Find out what you truly feel, and then you expand. Dodge truth, and you totter. Unless you come from a base of truth, you stand on a slippery ledge.
Do not think for one minute that being honest is license to be inconsiderate. Being honest is not the same as being blunt. Nor are you to second-guess situations and become political, saying what you imagine is desired instead of what is true for you. It is better not to stay away from subterfuge and cleverness.
Always be courteous, and always be truthful. First, find out what your truth is. Find out and consider what you feel is valuable. Thinking of what is right or wrong, what is better or what is worse, what others like and what they don't, what the odds of something may be - these do not serve as well. .
Impatience. It is your impatience. It is not the people around you that cause you to be impatient. They do not have the control of you. You have the control of how you spend your time and how you spend your energy. If you were not so subservient to time, you would not be so impatient. Have you perhaps made time your God? Have you written Time with a capital letter and decided to bow down to Time and follow its every wish?
Do you really believe that you can carry the world on your
shoulders? Yes, it is true that you are responsible for everyone and
everything, but, beloveds, think a minute. If you are responsible for
everyone and everything, are you not also responsible for yourself?
That you are responsible for the world does not mean that you are to
carry all the troubles of the world on your back.
When something is on your mind, it also weighs on your heart. It takes its toll on your heart. The heart desires peace. The mind likes a spin in a roadster at fast speed whereas the heart likes to ease in and not be hurried or hassled.
Stay close to Me, Beloveds. Carry your awareness of Me in your heart and in your mind. Remind yourself of My constant Presence. Remind yourself that We are always together and that there is no apart. Keep Me like a lighted candle or like a flashlight so you see better. Close to Me, in your awareness as well as fact, you are strengthened and brightened. You are never alone.
You are a like a yellow buttercup that grows in the field. Like a buttercup, you catch the sun, and you reflect it. Like every buttercup in the field, you are sweet and dear to Me. I note you waving in the breeze. My hand passes over you, and I send you blessings. The buttercup in the field notes My blessing. You, however, may be too busy, involved with other things.
Here’s the point, beloveds: You are becoming better and better, greater and greater, marvelous and more marvelous. There is more prime to come. Definitely, more prime to come. Meanwhile, you are at your prime today. This is the day I have set before you, and you taste of it. Whatever the weather, you have been upgraded. Today there is a new and better you. Yesterday you had gained on yourself as well, yet today you grow higher yet. You are someone who grows and grows and never stops growing.
