Nothing Is Forever
January 24, 2018

       message at peace in my power       

Your current joys will not last forever,
but neither will any of your problems.
 
The world always seems to be in crisis,
but your world doesn’t have to be.
 
When you let go of all-or-nothing thinking,
you are able to be present
with what is actually in front of you.
 
Enemies become friends.
Bodies heal, or pass away.
Questions get resolved or become unimportant.
Rest assured:
the things that bedevil you today
will fade away,
and most likely be forgotten,
like all the cuts and scrapes you got
playing as a child.
 
The most powerful person,
and the most effective in healing the world,
is the one who’s stepped off the merry-go-round
of full catastrophe living.
 
No problem of the human race
has ever kept Spirit from beholding us
with Unconditional Love.
Be like that.
