No Confusion in Identity

There is no confusion in your identity.

You know who you are.

Deep within you, there is a place of peace and purpose.

From this quiet sense, comes guidance for your every step.

Your identity determines your place and your purpose.

Your mind is filled with the intelligence of divine assurance.

You have a power to focus and to remain productive toward the goals that you desire most.

Your deep desire to serve in the way that most benefits you and mankind is being fulfilled.

No distraction can take you off that course.

You simply do not move forward during the distractions, but when you conquer them, you find that once again you are in harmony with your highest nature.

Despite what is going on in the news or the insight into temptations on a large national scale, you have a role to play.

Your role is to not get confused, to value the contribution you are making, and to proceed in a balanced way to expand your power to focus and to refocus.

If Wrong Has Been Done To You

Even so, look beyond that.

Place yourself in a new mental environment.

If you are forced into a new situation, take advantage of a new perspective.

Let it jog you out of your memory of past experiences.

Be grateful for those who had the courage to launch you.

Maybe they could see something you could not.

Maybe they knew you needed a different environment to give you a more positive outlook.

Respect that there may have been a sacrifice.

Do not add to other’s pain.

Even our own.

Broaden your perspective.

Respect the fact that there may have been more going on than you were aware of.

Become a bigger person.

Choose To Heal

If there be any good thing, think on it.

Feed the other wolf, the positive one.

Look at the situation a little differently and let a ray of healing light in.

Release resentment and fear and grow stronger instead.

Add to the forgiveness in the world, even if you don’t know how.

Just ask.

Be more understanding, and therefore be more understood.

Be grateful for the changes that were (and are) required of you to move forward even if they seem impossible.

Then move forward.

Every day you are in a new place.

So are the other people in your life.

Magnify one good thing in your life.

Let it grow and radiate and attract more good.

Choose Your Gifts

You have the opportunity to learn and to practice many things as your enter your professional life.

Some of them may attract you for various practical or popular reasons.

But you may feel a pull toward something else, something that comes from your heart.

Even though it may not appear to be as practical nor popular, this is the thing which will satisfy you the most.

It will bring you both happiness and prosperity if you follow it through day by day.

This is the treasure of your heart.

It is your gift.

Will you have the patience and courage to follow it through?

Cultivate your inner listening to find your own marvelous individual identity.

This will show you the steps you need to take as you follow your path.

It will take you farther and give you opportunities no other path well.

Choose your gifts, and take no other path.

Depend on Yourself

You have immense resources within your being.

You are defined by the special individual characteristics which only you can find.

When you do find them, and have the courage to act on their behalf, you become yourself.

This is the self you can depend on.

Your immense resources come into play when you begin to recognize them within you.

At first, they appear as an intuition, a thought.

Then, as you pay attention, and turn within more and more, they become more constant.

Finally, as you realize this is who you are and why you are here, you express this identity, your true self all the time.

You can depend on this recognition of your true self to bring you what you need.

It is not your effort.

It is what is propelling your effort.

The self within is constant, even when you are in confusing or disturbing circumstances.

The confidence and direction is there, waiting for you to turn to it.

When you feel this peace, most of all, you know this is the self you can depend on.

Choose Your focus

The emphasis you give to events and feeling directs your life.

You can choose both the events and how you direct your feelings.

The “gerbil wheel” of feelings can go round and round without any changes.

Or, you can get off of it, and take another look.

While you are the sole focus of your life, you will see things from one point of view.

Your view will expand when your life becomes more generous.

You can choose to continue to look at your life from a narrow focus and ride that “gerbil wheel” of emotions over and over again.

Or you can choose to expand your view to include a much wider range.

Recognize and Express Your Essence

Who you essentially are, speaks wherever you are.

Your deep values come out all around you, and as you.

How you conduct yourself and treat others.

Which causes you support.

Your priorities are expressed in the little things, and then in the big things.

Respect, integrity, consideration, generosity.

Character.

The little early teachings grow into something much more powerful.

Catch any deviation while it is small.

It is much harder to correct later.

Look at the priorities around you.

Are they really what you share?

Or do you have something much more individual and precious?

Trust your essence.

Recognize it and let that be expressed as your highest nature.

This is your true value.
