You may have thought that you are at the mercy of the world with all its laws and by-laws, its hustle-bustle, its manners, with so much for you to learn in the ways of the world.
I ask of you to make a new world based on its true destiny.
You may think that your life is destined and that you are at the world’s mercy. You may think that if you’re lucky, life is pretty good. If you’re not lucky, life is not so good.
No one is blind to the difficulties that can occur in life, nor are you, at the same time, to discount the great wondrousness that may also await you in life. The world may offer you many treasures that you don’t see, or, if you do see, you turn away from, for you hear not the call to adventure. You would like a new life, yet you hesitate about taking a new step. You may be too comfortable following the path most traveled.
Yet each day is new, and you are new in it. It is good to relax, yet relax does not mean that you and everything are to stay as they are. You cannot always set the pace of your life and the twists and turns of it. Every day has a new yield.
We can compare life to the seasons. We can compare life to the flavors of ice cream. We can compare you to the stars. Some of My children are like fixed stars who don’t want to go anywhere, and some of My children are like moving stars that want to make discoveries. Regardless of your proclivities, there will be times when you stay put, and there will be times when it seems you can hardly keep up with life.
Truly, at the same time as you may well desire life to stay the same, secure, and confident of, you may well desire life to shift and grow and show you new territory. You would really like life to be salt and pepper and wild herbs and something more that you haven’t yet been before. Life is, indeed, a mix.
Your garden may be a field of lavender, or your garden may have every color in the rainbow, yet it’s a good bet that all of your garden has green in it. Who can say what your garden must be like, for gardens, like life, seem to have their own personalities, and, yet, all gardens grow to the sun.
You may like all people to be the same, or you may like people to be new and different from what you have known before. Life will present all varieties before you. You adapt to life yet you are not a chameleon, nor are you a hopping toad.
All this is to say that life is bountiful, and you want to welcome life as it presents itself to you. It is all, all of it, life. Sunshine or clouds, life is life. Rain or snow, life is life. The great thing is that you are immersed in life, and you make the calls. When you’re happy, whatever the weather, you don’t mind. When you are happy, you don’t mind climbing flights of stairs. When you are happy, what gets in your way? When you are happy, you can sing any music you choose, and love it all.
I am making a case here for you to enter into all of life as it presents itself to you. You might prefer chocolate to vanilla. That’s fine, yet your preferring chocolate does not preclude your enjoying vanilla. Beloveds, relish the privilege of life as it comes to you. Life is a once-in-a lifetime occurrence. I am not saying to make the best of life as though life is dismal. No, not at all. I am asking you to relish life as it comes in all its flavors, for relishing life is the natural way to live life in the world.
