Foraging in the Forest of Life
Today I serve you life on a golden tray. A napkin covers all the delicacies on the tray, and you cannot see what is on the tray until the moment you lift the napkin. All your favorite treats are here. In what shape or color and in what position on the tray, you do not yet know. As today is served to you, carry the thought that it is served to you on a golden platter of My love. Of course, this is the tray of your life. Of course, the tray of love is served to you, and everything on it turns to gold. All that does not glitter is also gold.
You are a wayfarer in the world, and every day you set out on your adventure.
You may think you know what the day holds, and yet you are surprised. Beloved, you are the surpriser as well the surprisee.
You wrapped up all the packages for today, and you have forgotten. In real life, you forget a lot. You are the recipient and the organizer of your own life. You forget the importance of your part in the life you lead while you make too big a thing of life itself.
I know you often don't think you put your life together, and yet you bring on life, and, at the same time, you sign for it. You are responsible for how you receive your deliveries. Do not mix up responsibility with blame. There is no blame. Blame is counterfeit. Blaming Me or blaming yourself is idling in life when you are to move forward. Who is to blame for the rain that gets you wet or the sun that burns your skin? Rain and sun are innocent. You could not and would not have a world without rain or sun, and yet you would castigate them and one thing after another.
Life comes with all kinds of terrains. Life all over the world comes with bugs, and it comes with flowers. The flowers you pick, and the bugs you swat. Life is becoming more immaterial to you. You are learning not to take life so personally. You are learning not to take life so seriously. By land or by sea, life on Earth is yours to enjoy. Why would you want to do anything else but enjoy life as it finds its way to you?
You are on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Even in rugged terrain, you can have smooth sailing. Life is served as it is served. When you are served ice cream, you can make a sundae of it. When you are served a ton of bricks, you can make anything you want from the bricks. You can build a castle, or you can leave the bricks as rubble. What is there you cannot do, beloveds? What is there that is not for you to do? You can change the world by how you apply yourself to it.
You are innocent, and you are responsible. What a combination. You are in a high school science lab, and you discover that the ingredients you mix are far more powerful than you knew. You are an agent for life and also an angel. You are my Holy Messenger. It is incumbent upon you to give out the lovely messages I give you. It is for you to be a beacon to the world.
You lift up the world, and you peek underneath it, and underlying it all, you see gold just like the golden tray life is served to you on. The world is made of gold, and yet it is not always gold-plated, and the gold, like Me, is not always seen. And you are made of gold, and you do not always see that you are My golden child who happens to be foraging in the forest of life.
