Today we ask that you know that you deserve good things.
You deserve life’s goodness.
It does not matter what you did or did not do in the past.
It does not matter if you made “mistakes,” or if you were “not living up to your potential.” It does not matter if you made unwise decisions, or entered into destructive relationships. It does not matter if you squandered good opportunities, or acted foolishly.
None of that matters.
Let all of that go.
You deserve good things. You deserve to experience the goodness of life.
Other people deserve good things. Other people deserve to experience the goodness of life.
Just because one person has good things, should not deprive another person of good things.
“Good things” are generally not the things that the ego desires — status, proving superiority over others, and so on. Status always comes at the cost of someone else.
“Good things” are love, joy, and good feelings about life itself. Experiencing these things does not come at the cost of someone else.
Everyone deserves to feel love, joy, and good feelings about life. Every baby born deserves to feel love, joy, and good feelings about life.
You deserve to feel love, joy, and good feelings about life. It does not matter what you did or didn’t do. It does not matter if you have been a “bad” person. It does not matter if you’ve made a lot of “mistakes.”
You deserve to feel love, joy, and good feelings about life.
These feelings can only arise in the present moment.
Thinking about your past — this will not give you those feelings.
Thinking about your future — this will not give you those feelings.
You deserve good things. You deserve to feel love and joy. And you can only feel those things now. Not in the future. Not after you attain whatever it is you think you need in order to be happy.
You deserve good things today. You deserve love and joy now.
You do not need to do a single thing in order to deserve love and joy.
You deserve it right now.
Many people go around demanding things from the universe.
They demand money, they demand success, they demand recognition. There is nothing wrong with those things. But sometimes those things are wrapped up in the human ego’s need for status and superiority — which always comes at someone else’s expense.
Love and joy in the present moment do not come at anyone else’s expense.
So if you are going to demand anything from the universe, demand love and joy — now.
Do not demand love that really is just needing someone else to tell you that you are worth something.
Demand love that arises in the present moment. Demand love now.
There is love all around you, if you have the capacity to receive it.
The tree outside loves you. The coffee cup loves you. Your body loves you. The sun loves you. The sky loves you. The birds love you.
And you deserve that love. You deserve that love.
Likewise, the tree deserves love. The coffee cup deserves love. Your body deserves love. The sun deserves love. The sky deserves love. The birds deserve love.
If you feel that, and sense that, and live from that place — then you will have all the good things that you require.
