Dear Friends,

My message is simple today.  See beyond our own shadow and those around us.  I know that I am more than just a physical human body (or even a hologram as some would say). I am the Creator of all that I experience because I am an extension of God.  When I feel down or angry, it is easy to fight this feeling.  I tend to want to expect to feel happy all of the time.   Although I do think it’s realistic to be in joy (a deeper sense of calm that all is well) at all times, I don’t think it’s realistic to avoid the negative side of human emotions. Therefore, lately I’ve decided to just stop trying so much to “mold” reality to my liking.

Why not mold my liking to reality?  When I act particularly bratty or spoiled, like I have been doing a lot here lately, I could just give up on myself and say, “Why do you even make the effort?  You can’t help anyone because you can’t even help yourself.”  So I’ve been thinking that maybe I’m not meant to help others in the way I think I should.  Let me just allow myself to follow my moods and inspirations and let them take me where they will. In this way, I give myself some space to breathe and process.  It does sort of feel like I’m floating around in the ocean, without any indication as to which way the wind will blow.
At least I left the shore, right?

In this way, I’m looking beyond my shadow into the murky unknown and trusting that God has something great in store for me. Liken it to a very young child who is hungry and cranky after a day at the amusement park.  Most times, a mother is not going to get all mad at the child; instead she sees the situation as it is and comforts the child.  The mother “sees beyond the shadow.”  The most loving thing we can do for ourselves and others is to see beyond the shadow, especially when someone is acting out rather foolishly,
and even dangerously, to get attention.  We can see beyond the human limitations of this experience and just LOVE.  I’m not very good at this, I admit.

I have stated to God that it’s important to me to relinquish my defects that stand in the way of my usefulness to God and to others.  I have asked Holy Spirit (the Illuminator, the Voice of God) to bridge the gap between my ego consciousness and my God consciousness. I’ve invited this type of loving understanding of myself and others.  Loving understanding and compassion equals “seeing beyond the shadow.”  That is all I can do for today.  And that is enough.
