Many of My conscientious children want to do everything right. This is truly a human desire. However, it is unlikely that you will attain what is considered perfection in the world.
Now I will tell you what is the best thing you can do in all situations. This is it:
To come from high intention. Come with a high intention to serve. This is something you can do. You have a much better chance to steer your life with high intention than you have a chance of being perfect. In fact, you can let go of the idea of being perfect, for in the world, you are not likely to succeed. Perfect to whom anyway? To yourself? To another? Perfection, like just about everything else in the world, comes down to a matter of opinion.
And, then, you may ask: “What is the Highest of any and all intentions? How do we struggling humans know the answer to that?”
What I think is that you come from the high intention to serve. Desire to come from the Highest Intention to serve God. It’s also very fine to serve your children and family with the highest intention to serve them. Or the highest intention to serve your employer. The highest intention to prepare delicious and healthy food. The highest intention to drive your car safely and considerately for all.
It is good to think of what are your highest intentions. Obviously, you wouldn’t think that your desiring the biggest piece of pie or the whole pie is your highest intention. On the other hand, it is not necessary that your high intention includes everyone but you. You are entitled to pie. You do not have to leave yourself out. Sacrifice is generally not a high intention despite what you may have heard.
When there is one piece of pie left, you might grab it. Appetite to serve may compete with appetite for food. When you eat the last piece of pie, it may well not bring you the happiness you thought it would. And even if the piece of pie happened to be the most delicious pie you ever tasted, the fulfilment doesn’t last as long as your fulfilment at having passed it on to a hungry child would have been.
And, look, if you ate the whole rest of the pie in the refrigerator, it’s not for you to boo-hoo over it. In a way, appetite for food isn’t quite fair, is it? I gave you appetite. Your high intention may have been not to eat the pie, and yet you ate it anyway. Let it be okay. It’s done. Free yourself from regret. Freedom from regret is a also a worthy intention. Regret is not high.
When you give from love, then it is not sacrifice, for you are doing what you want to do. I would like to be sure this is understood.
Even when you arise in the morning, your high intention can be to have a great day. This is not self-centered. When you have a great day, you can be sure that all those around you, by virtue of your having a great day, will also have a great day. You can have more than one high intention. You can have the deliberate intention that everyone has a great day. You can bless, and you can bless. And you, yourself, also merit to have a wonderful day.
Your consciousness is rising anyway. It’s possible I never really had to write this Heavenletter today. Perhaps you are already aware of the power and blessings of your Self.
