God's One Wish Today
What is the one thing you would like to be true today? What is your heart longing for? If you could have one wish fulfilled today, what would it be?
This is hard to say because you find you have many wishes, and you don't want to give up any of them. Nor should you.
But today, write your list of wishes, and pick one, not three, to put up top. Don't worry. This will not exclude the others from tomorrow or even today, but today you pick one before all the others. It is like this: If you can have only one ribbon in your hair this morning, which one would you choose? The other ribbons remain for another day or perhaps even later today. It is the same with your wishes. Choosing one does not make the others less timely nor does it delete them.
Even when it is understood that you are not giving up anything by choosing one wish for today, still it is hard to come down to one, for many of your values are at stake. Naturally, you desire excellent health and wealth and love and success and you also wish for peace in the world. You also wish for lost loves to return, even if they are no longer on earth. So your wishes also fall under innately possible and innately impossible in the earth realm. Are there any other categories that your wishes fall under?
Do you perhaps feel guilt when you choose personal love over peace for the world, or success for yourself, as if you are putting yourself before others and somehow denying them? Be truthful. Now you are getting to why some of your longings have not been fulfilled. It is not clear to you that you are fully entitled to them.
You do not help others go forward when you straggle behind. As you personally manifest your desires, you bring others with you. So, right now, I limit the wishes you write down to those that are for your personally. This is the assignment. For the moment, put aside your wishes for others and the world and stick with your personal desires, even the wild ones. Never mind what you are supposed to wish for.
Read no further now. Stop, and write your long list as fast as you can. Write now.
Now that you have written your list, what have you learned about yourself? What is important to you? Which one of your wishes do you choose to head the list? Listen to your heart for this one. You are not choosing which one you think would come first if you were a better person or a more ambitious one or anything like that. Which one would you choose for your heart's content right now? When you let your heart choose, it is clear. It is only your mind that is confused and would waver.
I daresay that, when all is said and done, wealth is not your priority. You might have thought it would be. Well, when you worry, it is. Without worry, it is not. I will even venture that health is not at the top of your list. Again, when you worry it is. When you are not worried, it is not. I daresay that, perhaps to your surprise, neither fame nor whopping success head your list. I daresay that physical beauty does not. I will venture that your top wish has to do with love.
I do not want to tell you what your deepest wish above all is, but shall I tell you what My deepest wish for you today is? Shall I tell you? Or shall I not? I think I will.
My wish for you today above all is that you feel love in your heart.
