It was the eve of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, my esteemed partner Judi received a message:
"I will commit suicide on my birthday....." We were at a dinner so she could not respond right away.
Later that evening she contacted and spoke to the young man over Skype.
"I was an actor and sometimes I liked the parts but other times I hated the parts I was given.....I have no more place in this world and I want to end my life" he told her. After twenty minutes they lost contact and she could not speak to him again. We can only hope and pray that he did not succeed in carrying out his plan.
My dear friends, we came to learn in a difficult school. When the soul chose to come the soul took on a chosen role. Within this role we take on many parts and can reinvent ourselves over and over.
Your life is an experiment. If something does not work try something else until you get it to work. Each one of us has a part to play and there are no small parts. Every thought has power. Every action you take creates energy and causes ripples in this stream of consciousness, this world, the illusion.
YOU do make a difference in the world. Be compassionate to yourself and believe that you are effective and acting for the whole. When you act for the whole you let go of attachment to the outcome. You have the power to overcome adversity, to create and recreate any illusion that you wish to support your life and to support the life.
When you change the way you look at your life it becomes a much different life. If you choose positive....it is. When you look at the world differently it is a different world. We are still a work in progress. It is just a world. We are only on this planet for a short time. Everyone is an instrument of the universe to which we are grateful.
There are no small parts only small minds.
