Heavenletter #5100 A Milestone, November 11, 2014, http://heavenletters.org/a-milestone.html
Simply let go of finding fault. What a milestone that will be — to let go of fault-finding — to be a joy-finder instead. Even if you step in a puddle, find joy in the remarkableness of stepping into a puddle. Okay, if it’s bad enough that you stepped into a mud-puddle, laugh about it. That’s the least you can do.
We are talking about being good-natured in life. If the crime of stepping into a puddle has already been accomplished, let’s say, why perpetuate gloom? Why perpetuate gloom for any of the matters you are glum about?
Let the theme of your life be about perpetuating joy.
Do We agree that you have choice? Did I not give you Free Will? When you have the choice of kicking yourself or moving right along, which alternative are you going to choose? Which have you been choosing?
Look, don’t even mull it over. Choose light every time. Let there be no choice, for, truly, who would choose glumness over light any day? Of course, you have. Every time you complain, you are finding fault, and many choose to find plenty of fault with everything including Me. Perhaps I am missing something. What is the advantage of this? What possible advantage can there be? Oh, well, yes, to vent, I suppose.
It’s like you want to hear that you were wronged, as though being wronged is the mission of your life. When do you have enough, beloveds, of dooming yourself to being wronged? It’s not exactly a feather in your cap. It takes no special talent to be put upon. Okay, if you have been put upon, why put upon yourself further and conclude that you are a victim. It’s not to be proud of to be a victim any more than it is to be proud of to be a victimizer. If there were no victimizers, there would be no victims. The reverse is also true. No victims, no victimizers. No bullies, no underdogs. No underdogs, no bullies.
Let’s get beyond the idea of fault. Don’t point fingers. Look for solutions instead. Get out of the arena you have been boxing in. Rise above the rope you have been holding onto. Look for higher than accusation. Be grateful for every moment of life and the opportunity you have to rise above whatever you have allowed or chosen to hold you back from joy.
Is it really so hard to let go of misdemeanors? Is it really so hard to shrug your shoulders and move on in life? It is really so hard to be resilient? Is it really so hard to choose joy over anything else? Who says it is so hard?
You are more than an idle wayfarer in life. You are a way-shower. Be the first to own up to choices. It could be that enlightenment is a matter of what you are choosing. Enough of the hard realities of life. Get a new slogan. Get out of where you have been and choose a new route. If you’re not happy with your old ways of thinking and acting, it makes sense to try something else. Get new glasses. Balance your vision. Then making wise choices will be easy.
Are you choosing aggravation and displeasure over happiness? You may say because of this or that, you can only have unhappiness and doom. Well, then, you doom yourself in servitude to doomful thinking. Change your conclusions, and a whole new world opens up. Be happy anyway. Find something to like anyway. It wouldn’t be so bad to like life and to squeeze the joy out of it. Given a choice, wouldn’t you? I am telling you that you do have choice. You have made every choice in the book. Well, now, it’s time for you to get a new book and a new lease on life, what do you say?
