God Thanks Us
My trust in you is great. There is no limit to My trust in you. It is not even trust. I don't have to trust. I know. I know you as well as I know Myself. I know you much better than you know yourself. You don't yet really know yourself. You see yourself with gaps and blurs. I can even say you don't see yourself at all. You see perhaps a fraction, and you may mis-see that fraction. I am inclined to say that you don't see yourself at all.
Oh, yes, of course, you look into the mirror often where you see the barest periphery of yourself. Sometimes you are pleased, and more often you are not. Sooner or later, in any case, you will not be pleased, so attached to the physical are you.
You have to see beyond what your eyes see and your mind interprets. What more is there to be said?
You cannot think the same as the world thinks and as you probably always have. Well, of course, you can. You have. Yet you can't think the same, perceive the same, and have a different life. Your relative life is based on your perception, beloveds. As you see, so you create. Beloveds, you are not always responsible for everything that occurs, and yet there is a realm that is your responsibility and which can affect change in you. In you, beloveds.
You can be in the same circumstances, and with a shift in you, even if the circumstances seem to stay the same, there is a shift. You already know this. When you are glum, everything is dark. When you feel brighter, the same environment has a different cast. It may even light up.
One thing to remember is that you are not here for yourself. This idea will really relieve you of burdens, not add to them. Life is about more than you. What a remarkable concept! Life is about you, and yet it is more than about you. Adopt this concept, and you may feel a great relief.
Consider that life in the world is not the measure of you. The measure of you is not the point. I already measured you, well, not measured exactly, rather created you, and created you well. Remember I created you, not for yourself, but for the glory of the world. For you too, but not exclusively for you.
I suppose I could say I created you as a table. You are a beautiful table. And tables serve a purpose. You serve a purpose. Food can be served on a table. A table can serve as a desk. It can be a place to put things on. It is an object to polish. It can shine. It can be leaned on. It can be an adornment to a room, and yet a table to be a table serves in some way and more than in one way.
You have greater opportunity for service than a table does. The service you can give is unlimited, and you have new opportunity to serve every day. Be creative, beloveds. Dare to be new. Dare to serve the Universe and the other people who live in it with you whether they be near or far.
Remind yourself that it is a privilege to serve. It is also a privilege to be served. When you accept all the good that comes to you, you are also performing a service. Serve and serve and serve. You are serving Me, and I thank you. Know that with the next sunrise you see, I am thanking you.
