The Spoken Words of Spirit--January 17, 2011

The art of self-reliance is critical to the overall happiness in the world. Perhaps, it might have been better to propose that it is the “act” of self-reliance that will make extraordinary improvements for you personally. It is something that the Creation wants each person to own for themselves. In other words, waiting and expecting other humans to take care of you when you are able-bodied and mentally solid is the same as giving away all of your strength.

This behavior is contagious in both directions. The more you prove to yourself that you know how to--and want to--be an empowered member of society, the more easily you will have others convinced they can do that too. If you show that you are willing to sweat and struggle until someone rescues you when you are capable of working and producing without them, the more you end up raising a society of unmotivated children and acquaintances. What we are saying is that there must be a cultural change in attitude. You will find life become much more fulfilling when the rewards are earned; when the achievements you make come from within.

If you are wondering why we are sharing this, it is twofold. First, from a purely personal side of the message, we want each individual to feel as though they are special. This can truly only come when you transform yourself into viable members of a society that admires people for their ability to be icons of success. The second reason we are sharing these thoughts is a bit more ominous. Unless people take on their responsibilities to take care of themselves, the global balance in life will begin to shatter. It is already happening in many places. The depth of this lesson goes much deeper than can be explained in a matter of a few paragraphs.

When you were born, your soul and your physical body had no boundaries placed on its potential. All that you experience through the actions of others is what begins to determine your own attitude. Given that knowledge, would you rather be a doer or a taker? Would you rather have something to always strive for to enhance yourself, or would you like to live in a state of worrying whether or not you will survive? There is no relevancy to life if there is nothing to look forward to. Being in control of your destiny is far better than the opposite. Having a reason to be excited about how much you can conquer is better than just living to survive. The way of the universe is to be self-empowered and self-enlightened. When you couple it with the gift of angels and loved ones on the other side, awaking each day has more meaning, and is always going to be more enjoyable. May each of you prove that all of your days will be a better today. With a multitude of blessings, these are The Spoken Words of Spirit.

Believe it or not, I've given self reliance much thought over the past couple of years. If this is a lesson that I had to learn in this lifetime, I believe that I have gone a long way toward embracing it. It is a subject that is not often touched upon but so important in our lives.
As always, thanks for such a wonderful message.

Hey Jim. That self-reliance is a great thing as long as you don't turn down help when you need it. There is a fine line, as you have found out. I thought I would also pass along Lauren's love, since she is in my ear, so to speak.
