Subject: Why does it have to be so hard??

we are pure positive energy and then we are born into these bodies,
why are we so assured that there will be resistance surrounding
us? Why does there have to be so much that we worry about, that
gets our attention, and that sets up resistance within
It is because the benefit of a contrasting environment is millions of times more valuable than the negative is detrimental. In other words, if you did not have the ability to discern difference you could not prefer. And if you could not prefer, you could not vibrationally summon source. And if you could not vibrationally summon source, then we would all cease to be. And so the entire universe is based upon our ability to conclude the new idea which is the summoning forth of the new life into the new space.
- But wouldn't it have been better if we could have had an environment where it was easier to stay connected?
There is no environment that it is easier to be connected than an environment in which you are free to choose thought.
- But it's hard to choose a thought that feels good when there is so much around me that feels bad.
Only because you haven't practiced it that way. Only because you've been convinced that you've got to clamor around the problem in order to find the solution. And there is truth in some of that. The clamoring around the problem is what is giving birth to the desire, you see. It's all an integral part of all of this.
some who say that we should not encourage you to have desire. And
yet we cannot stop you from having desire, the universe is established
to produce desire. There are some who say it is inappropriate to
have desire. And we say those are only those who have not figured
out how to find vibrationally alignment with the desire so the desire
is always painful. We understand why you would not want to have
a desire that is painful, but the only
- How do we allow?
You find a thought that feels good and practice it until it becomes your proclivity.
- That's far too simple. There's got to be something bigger than that. There's got to be a lot more than just feeling good.
There is nothing more important than that you feel good. Because when you feel good, you've got control of your vibration. And when you've got control of your vibration, you are the deliberate creator of your experience.
- Why do we have to allow?
It is because
you were born into an environment where there are choices. You were
born into an environment where there is variety. In other words,
if you lived in a household where everybody thought exactly the
same way, and nobody had any contention about anything. Everybody
wanted everything exactly the same way. You were all born to love
pizza, and you were all born to love milk, and you were all born
to love the color yellow, and you were all
- We would get along to famously! We'd all sing the same songs, and we'd do the same things.
You would not be stimulated to a new idea. A continuing life force could not continue to be drawn within you. Because you need -- we all need -- an "active calling." That's big. We all need an active calling. There's has to be activation of that summoning of energy. And as long as there's an activation of that summoning of energy, then life continues. And it is our promise to you that life will always continue.
- This activation of this energy is a good thing, but my resistance to it is not a good thing. Why do I have to learn allowing?
You would not have to learn allowing if you had not learned disallowing.
- That's my point exactly! Why was I born into an environment where I learned disallowing? Why do I have to go back now and learn how to allow? Shouldn't I just naturally allow?
you wanted the environment of difference and needed to find your
bearing and you needed to find your place and you needed to decide
what you want. In other words, we promise you, you did not want
to come into an environment where you just said yes, yes, yes,
- I thought we were all one?
We are all one playing off one another for the purpose of coming up with a new idea.
- Well, it's painful because now I have to learn how to allow all over again!
all right. You can use your guidance system to know. If you don't
get too far from where you are, it's always easy to bring yourself
back to center. And even if you do get far from where you are, it's
still easy to bring yourself back to center. It just takes deciding
that feeling good is worth something, and practicing with real determination
to feel good for no other reason than to feel good. And in time
you show yourself that allowing is not a
We think that it must be so easy to know the stove is hot. In other words, that does not feel good. It does not feel good to put your hand on a hot stove. And we do not understand (sometimes) why it is so hard to take your hand off the stove.
- My mother had her hand on the stove. Her mother had her hand on the stove. Our family puts its hand on the stove. It's just what we all do. The day I was born, they put my hand on the stove!
Now you get to decide how you like it.
- But it's hard. Do I dare take my hand from the stove?
Risk it and try it.
- Ah, it is sweet relief when I take my hand from the stove. But look, my mother still has her hand on the stove and my government still has its hand on the stove. They've all got their hand on the stove! Who am I to find the relief of not putting my hand on the stove?
All right, put your hand back on the stove if you want to, but understand that you get to allow or not allow. These are your choices.
We're wanting you to understand that it's not hard to allow. In fact the hardest thing of all is to learn patterns of not allowing who you are. It's a lot harder to be confused than to be clear minded. It's a lot harder to be sick than it is well. It's a lot harder to not have enough money than to have enough money. It's a lot hard to be negative than to be positive. It's a lot harder to be pessimistic than to be optimistic. The hard, hard, hard, hard thing is not allowing. It is easy to allow. You just have to give yourself permission and practice it a little bit.
You are on your own on this. And you like it that way. You came into this environment knowing that you would be an individual consciousness that would have your individual preferences and that anything you and your powerful individualnessness identify as your desire, source energy will answer. It is our expectation that you will prove to yourself that you have the ability to let it in. It is so much easier than you think. There is just one thing that you have to remember: It is good to feel good.
It is good
to feel good. Clarity is your natural state of
being. Healthy is your natural state of being.
Eager is your natural state of being. Loving
is your natural state of being. It is natural for you to have desire
and it natural for you to anticipate happy
outcomes. And it is natural for you to love.
And it natural for you to sing. And it is natural
for you to play. It is natural for
is great love here for you.
