Message from God: book 1/185
Go ahead and do what you really love to do! Do nothing else! You have so little time. How can you think of wasting a moment doing something for a living you don’t like to do? What kind of a living is that? That is not a living, that is dying!
If you say, “But, but…I have others who depend on me….little mouths to feed…a spouse who is looking to me…” I will answer: If you insist that your life is about what you body is doing, you do not understand why you came here. At least do something that pleases you, that speaks of Who You Are.
Then at least you can stay out of resentment and anger toward those you imagine are keeping you from your joy.
What your body is doing is not to be discounted. It is important. But not in the way that you think. The actions of the body were meant to be reflections of a state of being, not attempts to attain a state of being.
In the true order of things one does not do something in order to be happy, one is happy and, hence, does something. One does not do some things in order to be compassionate, one is compassionate and, hence, acts in a certain way. The soul’s decision precedes the body’s action in a highly conscious person. Only an unconscious person attempts to produce a state of the soul through something the body is doing.
This is what is meant by the statement, ” Your life is not about what your body is doing.” Yet it is true that what your body is doing is a reflection of what your life is about.
It is another divine dichotomy.
Yet, know this if you understand nothing else: You have a right to your joy; children or no children; spouse or no spouse. Seek it! Find it! And you will have a joyful family, no matter how much money you make or don’t make. And if they aren’t joyful, and they get up and leave you, then release them with love to seek their joy.
If, on the other hand, you have evolved to the point where things of the body are not of concern to you, then you are even more free to seek your joy, on Earth as it is in heaven. God says it’s okay to be happy, yes, even happy in your work.
Your life work is a statement of Who You Are. If it is not, then why are you doing it?
Do you imagine that you have to?
You don’t have to do anything.
If “man who supports his family, at all costs, even his own happiness” is Who You Are, then love your work, because it is facilitating your creation of a living statement of Self.
If “women who works at job she hates in order to meet responsibilities as she sees them” is Who You Are, then love, love, love your job, for it totally supports your Self image, your Self concept.
Everyone can love everything the moment they understand what they are doing, and why.
No one does anything he doesn’t want to do.
