To: You – What have you done with yourself? Look at yourself, think of the choices you’ve made in your life, and recall now, those bitter moments when you fall to your knees…If only you had the opportunity to choose again. What’s past is past and what’s past is dead. What most often weighs you down and brings you misery is the past in the form of unnecessary attachments, repetition of tired formulas and the memory of old victories and defeats. You must consciously wage war againt the past and force yourself to react to the present moment. Use your mind; it is a sponge soaking up all the knowledge given to you as you go through life.
You are the most valuable treasure on the face of the earth, for you know who created you, yet you have shown no knowledge or appreciation of your uniqueness. You are the rarest thing in the world, one of a kind, a priceless treasure, possessed of qualities in mind, speech, movement, appearance and actions like no other who has ever lived, lives now or shall ever live. Why have you valued yourself in pennies when you are worth a king’s ransom? You can’t command success. You can only deserve it. In this world you cannot relax and rest on your name, past achievements, or your title. Be perfectly content with your intellect and personality. Losing your temper is a human weakness. You are responsible for your own actions. You must allow yourself a few small failures and develop the capacity to forgive yourself when you make a mistake. When you think of riches and power you think of money and control not knowing that God has given you the richest thing of all…your mind, the creator of your power.
Open your heart so an angel can help heal you. Everyday and in everyway you are getting better and better. Now it’s time to focus your mind on transformation. Remember the phoenix of mythology, a bird that can recreate and reproduce itself. It did so in the most intriguing way, it would seek a fire, usually at a relifious temple, fly into it, consume itself in the flames and then emerge a new bird. If this is not the ulimately profound transformation, then what is? Transformation is in your mind and body. To change something in a natural, not artificial way, involves transformation from within. If you observe life, the process of growth and decay, you will see the transformational powers at work all the time. The caterpillar changes itself into a butterfly. The infant grows into a child and then an adult. This acceptance of transformation gives you the key to understand the true meaning of life.
The results of your transformation are quite obvious, although the process is secret. A seed will not grow properly if you keep digging it up and exposing it to the light of day. It must stay invisible until it starts to grow. You have the power out of your souls judgement to be reborn into a higher form, which is divine. You are more that a human being. You are a human becoming. You have returned from a living death. Remember the laws of happiness and success. Count your blessings, proclaim your rarity, go another mile, use wisely your power of choice. In the face of undeniable reality of this eternal expanse how can you not feel the preciousness of the presant moment. It is a miracle to be alive. Even one more day.
