Very Familiar Circumstances
“It will seem as though you are not making progress at times, because you will find yourselves confronted with some of the same old stories that you have faced so many times before, and you will think to yourselves that you are not getting anywhere, that you have not progressed in your lives. And that thought is one that does not serve you. It is so much more helpful for yourselves to remember that you are creating every moment and every situation anew.
So it is not the same situation. It is not the exact same circumstance. You are not living the same story over and over again. You are creating slightly new stories for yourselves, and they may carry the same theme. They may look a lot like other experiences that you have had several times in this incarnation. But they will be different, and you are different as you experience them.
So let yourselves off the hook a bit, because you will only create circumstances for yourselves that serve you in some way. So instead of getting down on yourselves for being in the same circumstance again, be creative with your approach. Let yourselves really see the details and the nuance of the situation that you are currently creating, and don’t just lump it together with all of the others that were so similar.
Allow yourselves the opportunity to have a new perspective on the circumstance that is so similar but has those very specific qualities and differences from what you have experienced previously. Give yourselves credit for being able to handle the situation and take a new approach. You are so much bigger than any situation that you create for yourselves. That much we hope you have recognized by now. You will be the one who benefits from the experience that you create, if you allow yourselves to do so.
We know that this can be difficult for you to swallow. We know that it can seem as though there is no hope. And we know that many of you are very sick and very tired of living these themes of yours out for the umpteenth time. But we want to be so gentle with yourselves now. We want to hold yourselves as you would a precious newborn, because that is the way that Source is viewing you and is experiencing you. We just want you to raise your viewpoint to that of your Source, so that you can have a brand new experience of yourselves while in very familiar circumstances.”
