Topic: Life’s Troubles in Perspective
Group: Woods Cross TeaM
Teacher: Abraham, Mary
ABRAHAM: I am ABRAHAM. Greetings. I appreciate your thoughtfulness towards those in the world that are suffering. The angels are very busy right now helping to provide aid and comfort to those in an already poverty stricken area.
ABRAHAM: How strange is it in the so-called civilized world that mortals complain about menial troubles. Many of those troubles are self imposed. Life can be so beautiful and there are some individuals who thrive on drama and tension as if it gives them a purpose in life. It is sad for these individuals that they can never stop and take a deep breath, watch a sunset or sit by a waterfall.
I can see you each also with some tendency to lean towards being proactive in everyday life. I do understand how overwhelmed one can be with all the responsibilities that there is in everyday living. I can see how some responsibilities are magnetized to cause one worry or stress. It is my hope that you can see everyday chores as something that must be done for the good of the whole.
Being employed, paying bills, taking care of home and children, social issues—as in relationships—can weigh heavy on the mortal mind. It is those horrendous tragedies that make our everyday chores seem ridiculous. I am not saying that we should be grateful for what we have when we view how bad things can really be. It is completely natural to think this way and hopefully you would find your mundane chores to be small.
MARY: I am MARY. I like this evening’s lesson because it calls for some prioritizing, some organization. I believe Abraham is trying to say that when the mortal life is full of worries, then does it take up space in the mind. It is difficult to meditate when the mind is drawn toward other responsibilities. I can understand how life calls you in various directions and demands your attention and takes your energy. It is somewhat of a cycle when the worries keep coming around and there is not time for spiritual study, stillness, nature appreciation, creativity or socializing with an upbeat associate. Abraham and I have discussed the issues that you have put forth and we can confirm your feelings of slowing down or taking breaks.
There is a great deal of organizing in the mortal life and we are asking you to complete some of your worries so that you have time for those things which feed the soul. It was written, seek the Kingdom first and all else will be given to you. Know that we are supportive always of this group. We can confirm there are other TR’s being trained. We ask that you not make this decision another worry to add to your burden of everyday life.
We are asking for your joy in knowing that there is a meeting scheduled and that this gathering is not just another job. Have not stress nor worry should you take a break between your meetings. It is not like we are going anywhere. We will always be with you when you call upon us. We suggest that you take a little time to organize the everyday worries and then push them from your mind. Do not run out and seek for more worries, but take time to connect with Father and to feed the soul. The soul’s energy is a wonderful coping mechanism. Know that your Father is close by and more than willing to help you with even the most mundane tasks.
MARY: We are supportive. Have not worry. Our love continually grows for you. Until next time, Shalom.
