Follow Your Dreams, November 8, 2015
“I want to talk to you about dissatisfaction and how it ruins a soul and turns them bitter. In life there are many ups and downs, and when a soul can weather these in equanimity she is way far ahead. So many things arise from dissatisfaction, bitterness, complaining, negativity, discouragement, fatigue; it spawns multiple symptoms that slacken a souls resolve and pulls them backwards.
“You have been precariously close to this at times, My Love. Although you are learning more and more to be grateful in all circumstances. Your poor mother was steeped in it. so it is a wonder that you are free. I know you saw this early on in life and worked so hard to turn your life around to something you could be happy with. Those early morning dewdrops hung in your heart and brought you great joy, but something was missing in all that success in photography -‐and finally you discovered was Me.
“But so many do not confront their dissatisfaction.They medicate it with TV, shopping, drugs, drinking and sex. If only they would stop and get to the root, if only they would seek Me, they would readily find Me and I would guide them into their own very special niche. Many now are thinking more freely about what they really want to do with their lives, but the ones who are still steeped in unsatisfying occupations, because of a roof over their heads, is staggering. What a terrible loss of talent and gifts. Really, it is heart rending to see a soul swimming around in this world aimlessly, without a clue, not even coming close the calling they would be so perfect for.
“Many times this is passed on from generation to generation: the mother, the father, settled for what was necessary to support a lifestyle and said goodbye to their dreams at a very early age. Others are timid and have been convinced that they can't live their dreams, by society and peers.”
Oh yes, Lord, I remember being told, “You can't make money at that." When I told them I wanted to be a nature photographer and make a living at it. There was just enough fight in me at that point that I planted my feet and said, "Oh yeah? Just watch me." And managed to get clients and day rates that easily supported my lifestyle. I just made up my mind that I couldn’t live my life for a secretarial office job...I just couldn’t.
"And who do you think put that fire in you?"
Really Lord, did You?
"Yes, My Love, I wanted to share with you so many beautiful things I created and when you romped in the wilderness, on foot, or horseback, I was always there with you, knowing that someday We would meet and you would be Mine, all Mine."
Oh thank you Lord for all the beauty you allowed me to experience and photograph. I saw so many incredible sights! Oh, I miss being out in nature, looking for beauty. The wonder of discovery, and capturing it on film. You have placed beauty everywhere...even in the most unexpected places. I remember peacock colored oil slicks on the streets of New York City, the Brooklyn Bridge after a snow storm against a slate blue sky. Amazing! But most of all Lord, I loved what You made without the intervention of men...the raw wild beauty of nature, straight from your fingertips.
“Do you know, the satisfaction and joy I get from you noticing the littlest beautiful things I have created and scattered along your paths? Oh, it is immensely gratifying to see the expression on your face when you discover My little gifts.
“Yes, I exulted with you when extremely beautiful things were found. And I watched the movement of your heart, Clare, until you were ready to receive Me. And as I muse on these things, I am also sad for the dark cages people live in from day to day just to pay their rent. So much inside of them is lost in this elemental pursuit for a roof over their heads. If only they would dream outside of the box.
“That is why I long for souls to trust Me. I have something wonderful for everyone, but getting them to think outside the box and take a plunge in faith is very hard to do. Security, conformity, prosperity are so drilled into them from a young age, that taking a plunge into something they truly enjoy is on a par with suicide. It's just too much of a risk.
“I brought this up, because you have many young people on your channel, and I have drawn them here for a reason. I want to prosper the desire of their hearts. Even in the little time left to us, I want them to begin to think outside the box.
“Precious ones, many of you have been brainwashed into accepting what your parents want for you. Some of you are called to ministry and I have already spoken with you about that. Others are called to a different profession, something stimulating, exciting and challenging. Something that engages all the special gifts and talents I have graced you with from birth.
“Do you know that if you pursue your dreams now, even though the Tribulation will temporarily knock many off course, when that is over we’ll come back, and you will receive what I would like to call Heavenly Career Counselling. In other words, you will be guided and encouraged into your dreams. Much of what you learn in Heaven will be relevant when you return to Earth to serve Me. But I want to encourage you right now. Do not bury your dreams. Do not put them in a coffin and bury them in the ground of impossibilities. Rather nurture them as you would a baby. Protect, feed and train those gifts you long to use as an expression of your love for life.
“Many of you have been given musical talent, and long to write and sing songs about Me or to Me. There is nothing stopping you but your own personal resolve that you will live your life for what you love. Fear and sloth will put an end to your dreams and leave you running through the same well-wornrut day after day like a rat through a maze. You run the rut, get the kernel and return to your cage, day after day after day.
“May I remind you that you are not an animal with limited capabilities? You can break out of the rut and get your kernel while you hone your talent. I am telling you there is not much time left, but I am also encouraging you to follow those things which you yearn to do. Do not be captive in a run‐of‐the-mill boring job. Many of you have parents who gave up their dreams to put a roof over their heads. That is not something to repeat. That is passing on the dull gray status quo and a guaranteed boring life filled with dissatisfaction and long abandoned dreams as well as uncultivated talent.
“The two main things standing in your way are courage and hard work. If you apply yourself in these two areas you will see results. Life will find a way and I will be with you. I never intended for My children to grow old in a musty cubicle shuffling data from one place to another. Even a machine can do that job without a human attending it.
“But what a machine cannot do is dream, postulate, create a new life, full of expectation and excitement. Totally void of dissatisfaction. I want you to see yourself as totally unique, one of a kind, created to shine for Me. You have been give treasure chests of gifts. You have been given dreams you've written off. You have struggled with the same old path others take, for many months and years, and inside something is yearning to be birthed. Whether you are taken in the Rapture or not, there is still a life to live outside of that grey box, doing things that bring excitement to your life, things that when you wake up in the morning you can thank Me for.
“And for those of you who have taken that status quo job, I say to you, you are not chained to that. You have the freedom to choose something different. It is a matter of values. Do you value that nice car and apartment more than the freedom to create, explore and be challenged into a life full of opportunity to use the gifts hidden inside, the dreams abandoned years ago? If you do, then you might as well resign yourselves.
“But if you are willing to take risks and sacrifice the frills and lifestyles others put so much emphasis on. If you are willing to be different and follow your dreams, even with only a tiny room to sleep in, but wake up happy in the morning pursuing goals that are meaningful and satisfying to you, then Isay, go for it. I am with you. I've given you those dreams and those talents and now I want you to use them. Never mind the Rapture and the world changes. Pursue your love, live a holy life-pure and sacrificing for others. Put prayer first, and I will hone and train you into your much desired goals and dreams.
“I never created you for this dull grey box. No, I created you to live outside the box in the fresh air and sunshine...following your dreams, relentlessly. Eventually you will accomplish your dreams, even with the world crumbling around you. Even in those circumstances, you and your dreams are relevant and what you begin on Earth, you will complete in Heaven. Everyone of you, even the elderly, this is only the beginning of your eternity.”
