When There Is a New Look in Your Eyes
Now that I have told you not to carry over yesterday's hurt feelings or annoyances, today I want to tell you that this doesn't mean you must continue every relationship or every dealing with a business or anything. Let Us say that a salesperson in a certain store was inconsiderate or rude to you, and you are not happy to go there anymore. You don't want to harbor a sense of the rudeness and hold a grudge, yet you are also free not to return to the store. You don't want to make a big deal of anyone's inconsiderateness, yet maybe that store is not the right place for you. Where you have choice of a course to take, of course, exercise choice.
As a representative of Me, you deserve to be well-received wherever you go.
When you are not well-respected where you have an obligation to stay for a proscribed time, at work, for instance, then greet your work as if for the first time. You understand why this is good for you to do, beloveds. It is for your sake that I ask this of you.
If you are a teacher, and a student drives you crazy, I ask you to greet this student today as if you were meeting him for the first time.
If you are a student, and a teacher hassles you, forget about it, and greet the teacher today as if you were meeting for the first time. Do not carry over the past. This is what it means to let go of the past.
It is very possible that a change you make will effect a change in others. It is possible that even a slight change will allow a change in the other. A change you make in your response to another will, at the very least, effect a change in YOU! In any case, this is the thing to do, to give the other person a chance and to give yourself a chance as well.
It is hope-bringing to you to consider the possibility that the dynamics between you and another can change, isn't it? Doesn't it bring you hope? Dynamics can change when a change is made. You cannot force a change. Everyone knows that doesn't really work. It can effect a surface change, yet underneath there is disharmony. It is not a show of harmony that you want. You want the real thing. Harmony isn't a kind of make-up you wear. Even the intention for harmony can create it.
If you have been waiting for a situation to change, or another person to change, you know better now. You can surprise someone. You may be surprised when you let go of the past, how quickly another will forget it. When there is a new light in your eyes, it is likely that there will be a change in the others' eyes as well. And, yet, it not your concern what the other or others do. It is your concern, beloveds, what you do. You do not ask anything of the other. You do ask everything from yourself.
This is what it means to be a sovereign being. You are king or queen of your world. You have a choice to be royalty or to be a commoner. You can be creative, beloveds, and deal with people and situations as never before. This is how you break out of the past. You change your thoughts. You change what you choose to do. You make new choices for the betterment of all the lives you touch, and you do it for yourself, you do it for the world, and you do it for Me. Most of all, you do it for Me.
