My dear friends, we love you so very much,
As you earth continues to rebirth itself we wish for you an awareness of your incredible freedom. Each one of you regardless of external circumstances is free to tune your energy to attract and allow the life you want. When you focus, in your inner world, on the things that you appreciate and give you joy, on the people you resonate with, the causes you admire, in this joyous space of thinking about what makes you happy and inspires you, you begin to draw it to you.
You have, however, been taught to place an inordinate amount of focus on the external world. We know you must focus on the external when it must be dealt with and we celebrate your focus upon all that you enjoy within it. However, if you start to think of your life force – your attention and energy – as your most precious resources, then you will start to become a bit more discerning about how you use your focus.
One of the things that robs you most of your precious life force is judging yourself or others, resisting yourself or others, making yourself or others wrong (even if you/they are!), and focusing on what you don't like in yourself or others, instead of focusing on what you do like about others, and best of all, what is right inside of you.
If you were the thumb on a person's hand you'd never make yourself wrong or insist that the pinkie agree with your perspective! You wouldn't be jealous of the jewelry on the ring finger, or upset that the pointer finger gets more attention. As a thumb, you'd know that you had a special place, perspective and purpose. You'd revel in the fact that you help grasp and move objects. You'd take pride in the fact that your person uses you to hit the space bar on the computer and type on their phones. You'd understand that each of the other fingers had their place and purpose too, in spite of the fact, or rather because of the fact that they are different. None of the fingers need agree with each other's place, perspective, and purpose. The hand – the greater Self – is always guiding them to work in harmony, just as the body is guiding both hands.
Likewise you don't have to agree with anyone. You don't have to insist that your perspective should be right for them. And you don't have to agree with others who insist that their perspective is right for you. There's no need to argue or agree. You have a right to be you! Listen if you must but just keep being your sweet, wonderful self!
Everyone, including you has an inner "hot line to the Divine" because the Divine IS your greater self, and the Divine wants everyone to live in a harmonious dance whether that means living and working together physically as the heart and the nerves do, or moving apart on your own paths as many cells in the body must in order to function according to their own design. You would not find the bone in the heart or the heart in the bones, for example.
If you listen to yourself and do what feels best in a given moment, you will find your place among those who are resonant and – naturally, easily, without judgment, argument, or the need to be right – you will naturally move away from those who do not resonate. It really can be that simple. The universe was designed to be that simple.
When you look at nature, you see the absolute perfection of each part of an ecosystem. You can also see the complete absurdity of imagining that one part of nature would insist that its way is right for another. Would a bird insist that a fish must fly? Would a tree insist that the moss must climb to the heavens? Would a rock insist it must roll instead of being content in its purpose of holding the soil in place? Would you make the bugs wrong for their existence? If you did you'd have to eradicate the birds that eat them, the forests that the birds seed, and the air that the forests produce for your life and lungs, and as a result your own life. Everything, every little, tiny part of creation, has purpose and value.
So do you!
As you surrender to this very basic fact of existence, you stop struggling with life. You find freedom, joy, and a flow of grace that guides you easily towards your desires. In a higher vibration wherein you accept – even if you don't understand – the perfection of life's dance, you avoid becoming entangled in the very common, unpleasant disagreements that seem to be part of human life. The all-too-common dance of "I'm right/You're wrong, I'm right/Life's wrong, I'm wrong/Nothing's right," and so on, has never truly made anyone happy.
You can be right about others being wrong, but that will never make you happy. You can be right about life being wrong, but that will only drag you down. You can be right about yourself being wrong, but obsessing about your so-called flaws or mistakes will never allow you the growth that makes you feel better.
The only thing that truly makes you feel alright is to realize that all human beings are all right for their own soul's own growth and expansion.
So how to feel right when life feels wrong? How to feel right when you feel others are wrong? How to feel right when you feel wrong? It is actually not so hard at all dear ones. Just ask yourself a question many of you have heard many times...
Would I rather be right or would I rather be happy?
If you answer, I'd rather be right!" gently ask yourself, "Why?" Why do you want to be right? Isn't the ultimate goal of being right, being happy? You tell yourself you'll be happy if another acknowledges that you're right. You'll be satisfied if life conforms to your expectations. You'll be happy if you're perfect according to the standards that were programmed into you before you even had a choice to believe them. Is that true dear one?
Question yourself deeply. Do you really think you'll be happy if someone who hurt you suffers? Dig deeper? Wouldn't you rather just let them go, free yourself of the burdens they heaped upon you, and be happy now?
If you wait for the external world to conform before you choose happiness, you could wait for lifetimes.
Being "right" is deeply ingrained in the human psyche. You have been trained to feel as if your very worth, identity, and being is threatened if you are "wrong" yet nothing can invalidate your worth in the eyes of your creator. Nothing can invalidate the precious, perfect, and unique role that you play in all of creation.
Your ego can feel threatened, but your soul, your creator and your angels all know your value. Best of all, when you truly embrace your value, independent of external validation, you will attract people and situations that easily mirror it back to you. Until then, if you hold on to a need to be right and for others to agree, you will likely receive struggle in return.
For example, if you are stuck in traffic, you can blame the cars in front of you. You may be right. You can blame yourself for starting late. You may be right. You can blame the city streets for not having enough lanes. You may be right. You can honk your horn and the cars in front of you will honk back. The situation can become more unpleasant. Or you can stop blaming and say, "Here I am. I can't change it. I may be late. So be it. How can I enjoy this moment in time?" You could turn on the radio. You could pray for everyone in traffic. You could sit and think about everyone and anyone you love... and in choosing any of these options, you can be happy!
Perhaps you have been the subject of unkind or abusive behavior. You can certainly blame the abuser and you may well be right. You can blame yourself for getting into a bad situation. You may be right You can blame the world and its programming, and you may be right. You can focus on the injustice and therefore attract more injustice to you. The Divine is always trying to guide you towards a more loving experience of life, but there are many in this world who will willingly match this kind of focus.
Wouldn't you rather be happy? Wouldn't you rather focus on how far you've grown, how much different you are from the people that hurt you, where you are going in your future, how strong you are, and all the good in your life now? Wouldn't you rather stop giving those who were unkind to you your power, and reclaim your joy? It is up to you dear friends. It is a choice to focus upon that which makes you feel better.
We know you have been deeply immersed in conditioning that subtly teaches you that you that being right is a higher priority than being happy. Question this often throughout your day. Anytime you feel yourself justifying your own unhappiness, ask, "Would I rather be right about why I'm unhappy – even if I am right – or would I rather be happy?" Then, if you want to feel better, choose better feeling thoughts, one thought at a time.
Far from "letting others get away" with something, or becoming a "doormat" your vibrational frequency of joy will attract kinder others, shine a light upon and reveal untruths, and guide you along a path of ease and grace!
If you truly choose to elevate your vibration by letting go of the dance of right/wrong, and trusting in the vibrational universe to draw like unto like, then dear ones, you will tune into greater happiness. In doing so, you release the people and situations you feel are "wrong" and let them spiral off along their way, while you proceed along the path that is "happy" and therefore ultimately most "right" for you!
God Bless You! We love you so very much.
