Let This Be Your Independence Day.
Today marks a special event for the United States Of America - Independence Day. This is the day that is marked down in history as the day that colonists shouted that they wished to be the masters of their destiny, to have the freedom to pursue happiness.
This last part is key: the freedom to pursue happiness. To understand what Independence means we must first understand what is Happiness. Happiness, simply put, is the joy that you feel when you are performing your Divine Purpose.
Divine Purpose is unique for all of us and all of us has a Divine Purpose. For one person it may be to create gardens of such beauty and tranquility that many flock to the area to feel the peace that the garden brings. For others, it may mean a desire to work with the Earth to care for it in some way that is uniquely individual. Still others have a Divine Purpose of great feats of athletic skill to inspire others, or music, or singing or to be the best friend to many. The list is as varied as the number of wonderful humans on this planet - each with a unique gift that is waiting to be expressed as Divine Purpose.
This is what Independence is really about - to be free to experience the joy of performing your Divine Purpose. Many of you know what your Divine Purpose is. Many are performing your Divine Purpose in all or some of your capacity and know this from the joy that is within you when you do. Some know what your Divine Purpose is but chose a path that took you away from it. And, some of you don't have a clear picture of your Divine Purpose.
Today's practical advice from Heaven is to pursue your Divine Purpose. Break away from anything that is keeping your from your Divine Purpose. Become Independent of cultural pressures and social pressures and familial pressures and pressures coming from your ego that are inhibiting you. Becoming Independent requires courage and faith that expressing Divine Purpose will create joy within you.
Becoming Independent also requires the need to accept the way that your Divine Purpose will manifest. For example if you know that your Divine Purpose is to be a musician, to play music that soothes the heart and soul, but you have a particular attachment as to how this is going to happen, I ask that you declare Independence from your fantasies of how your Divine Purpose will manifest.
Release and surrender to the Divine any expectations of how the Divine Purpose will manifest. Simply ask, daily, the Creator for help in manifesting your Divine Purpose and, soon, opportunities will start to appear. If you have Divine Purpose of being a musician, then an invitation to join a Church ensemble may materialize. If you still hold onto your Ego's plan of going to the Juilliard School, you will very often pass up these other opportunities that come your way to fulfill your Divine Purpose. Become independent of the ego's plan for your Divine Purpose and humbly accept and seize all opportunities that come your way.
For those of you not quire sure what your Divine Purpose is, I ask you to ask the Divine during that quiet time just before you drift off to sleep, "God, what is my Divine Purpose?" You will receive and answer. Notice how that answer feels right in your heart. Notice how the thought of pursuing this Divine Purpose fills you with happiness and anticipation. Burn this answer into your mind and humbly ask, "God, please help me to achieve my Divine Purpose."
For those of you who know your Divine Purpose but chose another path the advice to you is that it is never too late to change the course back to Divine Purpose. Simply ask for help from God to achieve your Divine Purpose.
For those of you who feel that you are achieving some of your Divine Purpose but feel that something is missing, ask during that time right before sleep, "Dear God please show me what is missing regarding my Divine Purpose." God will answer you back with images and a knowing or even a dream or two.
For all, please remember to thank God for help in your journey toward Divine Purpose and happiness.
