Subject: “Lighten your Load.”
Received by Oscar.
Thought Adjuster: “Lighten your load. Remove every thought that keeps you tied up by the chains of confusion, lack of faith, and uncertainty. You are a child of God, destined to live a mortal life. This mortal experience is not an experience of sorrow and fear. It is an experience of growth, of strengthening, of maturation in every way this is implied. Your time in this school is for learning, but it doesn’t have to be an austere, sad, or joyless time. Joy, hope, and a spirit of adventure are the hallmarks of those who have discovered what their destinies are, and have learned that this life is just a drop in the ocean of eternity.
“Today, while you walked outside, you could feel that the world was perfect, just the way it is. You were able to feel this way because you were in a situation that was favorable to you – a ‘good’ situation – according to your idea of what is good and beautiful. However, when those dark and rainy days come around, it would serve you well to remember that rain, as well as sunshine, are both gifts from your Father. The dark days, as much as the sunny days, are here to teach you something. The cold of winter is not more or less beautiful than the warmth of spring. Both are part of the cycle of changes of this sphere, and they are necessary for rebirth and renewal. Similarly, in your life you will go through periods which you will not consider to be pleasant, but these are necessary in order to transform you into a better human being.
“However, once you have gone through a hard winter, don’t you get a new appreciation for spring? Even those days of intense cold become more bearable with the hope of spring, which inevitably will come. Likewise, when you go through difficult times, always remember that better times will surely arrive.
“Fear and anxiety are not necessary, nor must you avoid the normal problems in life. Don’t let fear paralyze you and prevent you from advancing. Learn to trust in the One who has decided to go through this life with you, living what you live, and at the same time serving as your Guide – a light in the darkness and a steady hand you can hold at any time you need this.”
