You know how sometimes someone says something to you, and it's just what you need to hear? It sets your head straight. It uplifts your heart. It's a huge wake-up call that brings you closer to Truth, and then all is well.
How many times have we heard to accentuate the positive and let go of the negative? How many times has God in Heavenletters™ said it? And, yet, sometimes it takes just a word from a friend, and a whole new world opens up.
This happened to me in an email from a dear friend.
I could say to myself a thousand times to focus on my blessings of which there are many, and I forget.
As recently as June 29,only three or four days ago, this Heavenletter #4235 Your Best Interest appeared.
Here's some of what God said:
Complaining keeps you mired in what you complain about. Furthermore, complaining brings you more to complain about. Complaining is ingratitude. Ingratitude is a lack of gratitude.
Gratitude serves well. Ingratitude serves you not at all. Ingratitude serves no one, not you, not the world, not Me.
I am not saying that you have nothing to complain about. In world terms, there is always plenty to complain about. Complaining isn't to your advantage. It is not to your advantage unless you want to increase your long list of what you presently see as necessary to complain about.
To pout or not to pout is your choice.
I'm going to stop pouting. Loyal blogreaders, you already know I am at my wit's end with the superabundance of details that are mine to do. Goodness knows, I have bellyached enough! No more after this one last time. Details, computer work, are not my joy. Heavenletters are my joy. This blog is. You are. And now I crave banks of time to work on writing books instead of brief moments I can fit in from time to time. I feel hamstrung.
One last time, I cry out that details are simply not my cup of tea. My head gets too crowded with them. They take up too much space in my head. There are so many left brain items stuffed in my head that my memory is shot.
Another dear friend, Beverly, posted a comment under the blog Pace http://godwriting.org/pace.html that called to my attention another thing I was forgetting. It's a part of Godwriting™ workshops -- how could I forget?!!
This blog Pace prompts a left-brain, right-brain comparison.
Left-brain analytic style is more verbal, sequential, processes information linearly, plans ahead, is punctual and responds to logic. Right-brain style is more visual, random, impulsive, less punctual, processes information in varied order and responds to emotion.
God Speaks and you hear. You receive His Words and Love. You have discovered, refined and perfected this perfectly natural skill.
Details are consuming my energy and attention.
I'll say it one last time. Details are too much for me. I will not say it again. I promise.
Please know, at the same time I have been complaining, I do know how blessed I am to have Heavenletter details as my difficulty. I do know.
Back to my other good friend, the one who prompted this blog entry today, the friend who wrote one sentence that lifted me. With her one sentence, I am back to where I belong:
Here is the one sentence she wrote that has opened up the Heavens for me. I am going to make a sign of it to look at every day:
Isn't it wonderful that Heavenletters come from a place where memory is not necessary?
