There is joy and celebration to be had. There is a time to celebrate life and birth. There is a time to celebrate giving and the ongoing feelings of generosity. There are many ways to enjoy your life and this event amplifies them all.
You may choose to look at a birth as a driver of new and fresh. You may want to consider your own life and see what is new and alive for you. While the events of long ago are brought to your present, the most important ideas have to do with you and your ability to find what is inspiring in all your life, not just events from the past.
What can you do to create more life and more inspiration for you and those around you? How do you give in ways, unique and defining? How do your ideas build on the concepts of living fully the environment of adversity and hate? What can you do to spread more love and awareness just as the new baby did?
You have life and you have opportunities. This day and all other days are the times to create new ways of living and exceptional ways of giving.
How do you find out what you like? How do you find what others like? How do you combine the two so you are working in smooth cooperation with your interests, the interests of others and the principles of Love? Here are some ideas.
Pursuing your paths is particularly pleasant. Each time you find a new avenue of expression and some new success, life gets better. You can follow these paths and do well. Each life is full of challenges and problems, but there are also sparks of brilliance and love as well. You can focus on whatever aspect of life you want, but the results will be as different as your focus.
Life is there before you to participate in. Life teaches you more each time you engage in what comes your way. You learn more about what you like, what you dislike and what works better for those around you. When you discover the ideas and patterns to make more happiness for both you and those around you, you find the treasures you can live with.
So much of the time, you miss the presents in the present. Now you can see them better and explore them fully with any approach you want. Find the ones that flow for you and flow for everyone and you will swim to the beauty endlessly.
I was complaining about how people seem to reject me for unknown and trivial things and this amazing message came to me. It is clear we have a place to be ourselves and still be loved regardless of our choices and it is the space in connection with the Divine. It stunned me to realize how cool this is and it supersedes all other issues.
You have one place where you can be yourself. You have this place where you can whine and complain and fail and you are still loved and still ok. You have this place where you can be a screw up and look and act just the way you want to and nothing changes, the love does not diminish.
You have this place where you can worry and fret. You have this place where you can be disgusted and angry. You have a place where you can be upset and sad. Any emotion you feel here is ok. Any hurts or feelings of feeling left out or being an anomaly are ok. Any feelings at all are ok here.
You are loved and watched over here. You are accepted and lifted here. You have all the respect and care you can handle and more here. It is a place where you can be slack and repetitive. It is a place where you can live hidden or be active. It is a place for any emotion and all you get in return is love and great ideas to elevate and inspire you.
Think about what this space is to you and what you receive and how you get all this without any reciprocation or fancy dancing needed. You do not have to do one thing to get this love and if you do one thing, you get the rewards and benefits of doing what you chose.
It is remarkable when you think of what a magical place this is. It is so full of forgiveness and giving, you cannot even handle or comprehend it. What an amazing space you have created and We have given to you. Think about how great this is and you will probably never complain about your life again.
Generosity is a very important trait. It is nice to be generous. It is fun to be generous. Generous people often get generosity poured into their lives from unknown sources and they can, in return, be even more generous.
Generosity is a quality of your soul. Giving and giving freely is a very basic characteristic of who you are. Giving is what you are made for and giving often fills your own well with abilities to give more.
When you give generously, you feel better. When you give without interest in what you get back, you have even more fun. When you give without wanting a thank you or without any expectations, you find more joy in life and in giving.
Think what you have been given. You have life and abundance. Think what you are receiving daily in the way of love and information. Think how you are given to in innumerable ways and you will see how the Universe is.
When you emulate your situation and give freely to others, you have many opportunities come your way. You can realize the depth of giving to you and realize just how much you have to give. You can give endlessly without running out of gifts. You can give until it feels like there is no more to give and yet you can.
So much of your life revolves around money and time. These are the concerns facing you all the time and you deal with them in varying ways. You don’t want to be old and you don’t want to be poor. Both of these notions signify failure, giving up and being incapable. It doesn’t look good to be impotent and weak does it?
It does not feel comfortable to have trends in your life where you feel powerless to change them. Age marches on each day and you have money constraints all the time as well. They both combine with other trends and gang up on your views of what you are doing with your life and how you are living inside of all the expectations you have for yourself.
When you add the layers of expectations other people put on you, it gets even heavier. People look down on you, they want to push you out and find others to fill your shoes who are younger and more energetic. You have energy concerns and have to push yourself more to keep your body going and keep relevant and interesting.
What if you could take the concerns about time and money away? How would you live then? Would you turn into a lazy, unhappy person without the pressures? How would you behave with only your creativity and desire to produce in place? In many ways, both of these concerns are invented by you and your societies.
At the soul level, there is no time. At the soul level, money and things are temporary. Many of the concerns paramount in your consciousness are not even present in other spheres. What do you choose, knowing the concerns you have the most problem with; namely, money and time, are not even long term concerns?
What else would you do with your life and your time if you have a clearer view of what is important, long term?
There are some provocative thoughts. What will you do with this new awareness?
As I was thinking about why I can’t get rid of a persistent shoulder problem, this came to me. It brings up some very interesting questions about the purposes of pain and how we see others and what is going on with them.
You can live in your experiences and see what they have to teach you. You can find new insights and compassion for others when you have problems yourself and this is the greatest gift you can have…compassion.
Compassion for others shows up when you begin with compassion for what you do. Compassion has the element of it that will help you to understand others and also see yourself differently. Compassion is that quality that Jesus showed so clearly and that is the quality that people most appreciate him for.
When you show compassion for others and their issues, you show that you can feel their hurts and sense their pains. When you feel pain yourself, you learn how it can shape and mold your perceptions and feel what others go through. When you have persistent, long term pain, you know what it means to suffer within your own world and to further appreciate your own body and the ills that show up for those around you.
Judging others for their health issues is very common amongst you. You look down at people with sickness and pain because you sense that it is some kind of fault in them or a problem with how they think or behave. How do you like that coming back to you? Are you bringing this on yourself and thus, you are not worthy of others compassion or understanding? Are you above feeling pain because you are somehow above others that have similar maladies?
Now you are amongst those that have not figured it all out and have a very painful problem that is generated by your actions and your thinking. What are you going to do now? Are you less likely to look at others with that suspicious eye and judge them for their lack of activity or focus? What does pain look like from the experiencer side?
You can see how the idea of pain galvanizes you and focuses you to thinking about solutions and working on relief. If you do not create the relief, you are then relegated to self-doubt, lack of self-worth and more pain. What is it about your body that it wants to tell you? How do you listen to what is happening and create resolve or healing that lasts?
There are some very real questions to look at in your life. What kind of compassion and understanding are you developing for others and what they go through? Why are you experiencing these feelings now and what are you figuring out about how you are processing your life and feelings? It is like a puzzle. What will you discover about the missing pieces?
I learnt so much from my upbringing in New Zealand. The greatest concept was to learn how to love fully and to eschew materialism in favor of caring for others. My best mate John took a message I sent out and reminded me again about his compassion and also how to apply great ideas.
I share his response with you to give you a glimpse of the great gift I had from living among such great people.
Kia ora e Paora
Our good city of Auckland and its infrastructure has been exhausted with the population explosion thats hit us in the last 5 years. The hot topic on our front pages every day is the high cost of housing and homelessness. The average house in Auckland is now valued a million dollars. They say there are 42,000 people out of home, however there are 22,000 empty houses in Auckland being landbanked by investors as they earn more by leaving them empty than having them tenanted as the rise in values goes up higher without tenants.
You are so right in what you said in your last paragraph: “The greatest challenge of life is not about things or accumulations, it is how you deal with and absorb what is available in each moment.”
I stumbled over a 54 year old homeless guy by the name of Stephen Williams in town the other night and he shared with me his grief of being arrested and taken into a police cell for 3 hours for erecting a cardboard box for his abode. I asked him what he was going to do about it, he said I’m going to take it to court as he quoted various laws and statutes of his rights. I commended him for his tenacity and went on to ask where is going to stay and he said he has a tent inside a tree on St Georges Bay Road, Parnell which is one of the highest priced area’s in Auckland. So I drove him to his abode on a double decker bus which he was blown away with in that a stranger would do that for him especially the treat of being on the top of a double decker.
I saw his abode and laughed because he doesn’t pay rent, rates, power, water, insurance’s, maintenance and repairs and yet he has a million dollar view overlooking the Waitemata harbour, he’s surrounded by tree’s and nature, has no neighbours, is right by a bus stop for transport and only walking distance to the main city.
In Stephen Williams case and in what you said, his greatest challenge of life is not about things or accumulations, it is how he is dealing with it. He has chosen to be homeless, although not all of our idea of a lifestyle but he told me about the homeless in Auckland was that they have chosen to be homeless.
He said theres only 30 hardcore homeless people in Auckland in which he is one of them. The other 42,000 homeless are those families in shared housing, living out of garages, sheds, cars and otherwise. He said they too have made their choice of their style of homelessness.
This might well be Stephen Williams answer to Auckland’s housing problems but it certainly opened my eye’s to another perspective that as you said, “only the best can understand and digest the best. Where are you on your ability to accept and integrate these ideas?”
Going back to Stephen Williams cardboard box abode, take a look at this link and a home made of cardboard, he may well have an answer in his own rights afterall:
Life is moving on. The challenge is to see what life is showing us and finding out what we don’t see because of our mental state or because we are not looking for the good stuff. It is all there. Why aren’t we seeing it? In this amazing message, Jesus puts out the challenge.
Be on the look out for some new videos coming soon to the website.
When you open up your mind and open up your heart to ideas and new possibilities, magic can happen. You have new opportunities show up for you, opportunities normally passing you by, and you remain oblivious to them. What is coming to you? What are you missing because your mind or your heart is not open?
These are interesting questions for anyone who wants to enjoy it all. These questions are important for someone who wants to live fully and embrace all of life. These are important questions if you want to advance in your life and advance as fast as possible for you.
The more astute and aware you are, the more you learn. The more you can pick up in this moment, the better the moment is and the higher your satisfaction will be. What are you doing or thinking to block or dismiss the greatest ideas and concepts available to you now?
Tune in and listen. Watch and observe. See others and what they are doing. Look at your habits and actions distracting you from the information coming to you. Find the sequences and patterns of living and playing to assist you in finding out the most, and living at the highest levels of consciousness.
The information and ideas are all there, all at one time, right now. What can you do with all this? How much of it can you absorb and process? When you do take it all in, how will you live and what will you do with what comes?
The greatest challenge of life is not about things or accumulations, it is how you deal with and absorb what is available in each moment. Only the best can understand and digest the best. Where are you on your ability to accept and integrate these ideas?
