It just Is!! A marvelous gift. Ever hear the expression, "Don't look
a gift horse in the mouth."
When we receive an unexpected gift from another person we ask "What
did I do to deserve it" or there is a niggling "What I am I expected
to do in return," etc.
You received a gift from beyond. It is not earned. They just arrive
unannounced. Enjoy it. Be open to it. One doesn't "earn" gifts from
beyond, they are given open handedly.
When one sees an illusion for what it is, one sees the truth of the
matter. It is an illusion that we are victims. Perhaps the gift let
you see the illusion that you were playing the victim role in that
circumstance. I've been playing the victim role for the the last
several months over a "slight." Sometimes it takes a long time to
wake up and be in here behind these eyes as Coach would say.
Things happen. We can respond or we can play the victim role and
react. We can chooose. Essence is available when we see the illusion
So nice to be back in touch with you.
Love, john the younger.
