Be a visitor of the past and or future not a resident. God, the creator of all things gave us the ability to remember the past, so that we might not repeat our failures and or missteps in life, yet some of us have chosen to live there. The past is like the beach for some. We love our time there, for a time, but sooner or later the storm comes to the beach as well and there is no shelter there. Visit the past and bring forth good memories and lessons into your present, but do not live there. Do not bring forth negative emotions from the past. This is a perversion of the gift God gave you, and it is a sin against yourself.
Let it go. Acid destroys the vessel in which it is stored. Hold no discontent for anything or anyone. When you feel the urge to resent or hate, imediately substitute that feeling for love. Love them as the father of this universe loves them. Living your life right, means living it now, where the power lives, but know you do have some power over the past. You have the power to forgive and forget it.
Forgive and forget it. Do not hold on to things that have been done to you or things you have done to others. Forgiveness is for you. You do not must tell anyone but yourself, that you forgive them, and you only have to tell yourself you forgive you. There is a book, “the power of the blessing” and this book contains that secret. You have the power in you to bless anyone or thing that has offended you. You have the power to bless yourself for being offended and you have the power to bless anyone or thing that witnessed the offense and move on.
The future is an unknown for you, stop trying to predict it and live where the power resides for you, now. When we try to control the future, we allow worry and fear to invade our present and our presence. Do not rob the present moment of you, we need you here, we love you here. Stay with us. Do not journey in your mind to yesterday or tomorrow, for we are not there. God is there, but if you listen, God is saying fear not, I control these spaces, return to the present and thank me for holding your past and future in my hands. This is one-way God helps us. God holds tomorrow, so stop trying to control it. If you stay present, the very perfect you right now, you will be a perfect creation tomorrow when your future arrives.
The fear in us, fears a life without presence, without essence, without soul, without God and we try to control things that should be left to God. God made everything, everything, I said everything, in seven days. Do you honestly think, God cannot pay your electric bill tomorrow? Fear is useless. Thank God for this breath, and the next and the next, for everyone is a gift. Learn from your current strife, if any exists and move on. Why carry the cross of fear, it is not yours? Why waste the gift of God on worry? Why must you be in control, why must you challenge God for control? Be here with us now, not tomorrow. God has not promised tomorrow, but clearly God has given you this moment, this day, be thankful for it.
If there are people or things on this earth that bring you joy right now, be with them right now. You are not promised tomorrow. Spend no time outside the now. Be whom you want to be right now, claim what you must have right now. Ask and you will receive, does not mean, ask and then worry about whether God heard you or not. You are worthy, you are powerful, you are perfect. God made everything perfect, if you do not believe me, ask God yourself. Father, did you make me perfect, perfectly equipped to live the joyous, peaceful and fulfilled life you prepared for me here? Yes, I do not make junk, you take from the earth my perfection and make junk from perfection, and you doubt, worry and fear, destroying this perfect temple I have created for you, but yes, I did create a perfect you.
My prophets have told you, you are not to defile the temple, and the temple is you. It is a sin to worry, it is a sin to fear. These are direct commandments from God. If you worry or fear anything, you need to stop. Stop right now and thank God for your breath. Throw worry and fear back into the seas or yesterday and tomorrow, for these are Gods burdens, not yours. Your cross is not yesterday or tomorrow. God made this very second for you so you can live in it without, fear or worry. When you live in this very second without fear and worry, you are practicing the faith of the biblical Job.
I am not sure how to say it any clearer. Live in this moment, be thankful for this moment, nothing can hurt you in this moment. If you have trouble staying here in this moment, become consciously aware of everything you are doing. If you are warm, be thankful for that, if you are standing, be thankful for that, if you are eating, be thankful for that, if you are in the presence of loved ones, be thankful for that. God is now, life is now, hope is now, love is now, peace is now. Won’t you be here with us now?
