The InnerStanding #11
HOW SHOULD I LIVE MY LIFE?
Live life to the full!
For has not God given you Life that you may experience it in all of its abundance and plenty?
Your world is an illusion……yet, whilst you live upon its plane God asks one thing of you alone: Live all you can!
Love everyone you meet with pure, untarnished love.
Give all you can in certainty that God is your supply.
Have faith in God.
Be honest with all men – and include yourself among their number.
Accept Humanity as they are……their lacks are no concern of yours.
Be gentle with yourselves.
Know joy, unbridled and unlimited.
And seek the Light……for in its brightness lies your path back home!
And more than this – engage in Life.
Seek laughter and the pleasure of your friends (yet do no harm to others on your way).
Seek sunrises and sunsets every day.
Seek for your Soul, itself, and teach it how to sing and paint and play.
And – in everything you do – seek God.
Make all you can of every day.
It’s yours to live, experience and know.
Go live life honestly: God tells you so.
Peace be within you.
This is another of the more memorable messages I have received.
I transcribed it in 1991. Since then, I have received thousands more.
A word about ‘transcription’: Wikipedia speaks of it as…..”Transcription in the linguistic sense is the systematic representation of language in written form. The source can either be utterances (speech) or preexisting text in another writing system, although some linguists only consider the former as transcription.”.
Many spiritual teachers are known to have transcribed messages from Spirit: these writings include the laws and teachings of the Old Testament, the Koran, A Course In Miracles and Native American teachings and more modern tracts such as the books of Seth, Lazaris, Bartholomew, Edgar Cayce, Jayem and Neale Donald Walsch.
This specific message re-iterates six times the term ‘God’.
Initially this challenged me: I disliked the term intensely.
This was probably because I was brought up in a society that individualized the idea of ‘God’ down to a person, albeit a humungus all-seeing eye of a Super-person.
I was still shaking off remnants of my past annoyance at the presumed actions (through others) of this Superman…. And hadn’t yet fully accepted the concept of a Super-Man-As-God being the easiest way some people could deal with things bigger and less concrete (in a sense) than themselves.
I have come to see far more clearly now: God is simply All That Is.
Call it Love, Nature, Light, Harmony, One-ness, Essence, Being, Truth, Reality or just ‘Dog’ backwards…….
From this perspective I find great inspiration and guidance in this Message.
I hope you can, too.
Have a blessed fortnight, rich with enthusiasm for who you are and what you can do!
Blessings and Hugs,
