Our card for today, Wednesday, May 16th, is taken from the Angel Therapy Oracle Cards – Earth Angel – “You are a lightworker who has come to Earth to teach about love.”
If you are wondering what your life’s purpose is, then here it is, you are a lightworker here on this earth to teach about love. Too simple? How many of us actually are living the love we were created to be? How many of us offer a helping hand to those in need? How many of us still judge others by their appearance, or for some other reason? How many of us actually love ourselves? How many of us love the earth and do our part to take care of her and all life on her? Love encompasses many things and more than what I have said here.
Our mission here, to teach about love, is not just spouting the words of love but being a living example of love in this world. We all know anyone can talk the talk, but how many of us are actually walking the walk? When Jesus walked this earth, He didn’t just talk about loving our neighbor as ourselves, He actually did it. He walked the path He came here to teach us. And yes sometimes it can be difficult to love our neighbor, especially if you happen to live next door to a neighbor like mine, who seems to go out of her way to make life a living hell for everyone she knows. And trust me I struggle with this one every day. I try to remember that this woman has chronic pain and takes a lot of medications, some heavy duty ones at that. So when she is shouting at me for something I didn’t do, I do my best to ignore her or at least try to be polite and not get drawn into the drama.
If every person on the planet was nice to us, and did good by us, it would be so easy to love everyone wouldn’t it? But that’s not the challenge, the challenge is to love those who are not so loveable, like those who have hurt us in some way, or people who are not nice period. Maybe one way to make that easier would be to remember that they are also a piece of God just as we ourselves are. Another thing to remember is that hurt people hurt people. Maybe their pain is not physical like my neighbor’s, maybe it is emotional or mental, or all three. If someone is unhappy for whatever reason, they tend to take that unhappiness and pain out on everyone around them. So now we need to see them with eyes of compassion and not judgment. Again sometimes this is easier said than done.
The thing to remember too is that we are still a work in progress ourselves and so if we can’t be 100 percent loving all the time, we don’t need to beat ourselves up over it. The challenge is to do our best in every situation we find ourselves in. If we find ourselves in situations we are not sure how to handle, we need to ask ourselves “What would Jesus (or love) do?” And then we need to try our best to follow that. Of course this isn’t just about Jesus’ teachings, every ascended master who has walked this earth came with the same message, to love one another as God loves us. Love is not just an emotion we feel for those in our lives, like families and friends and partners, love is meant to be a way of life.
Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
