What’s Truly Important In Your Life?
Good evening, my scribe. It is I, Esu “Jesus” Sananda, come in the Radiance and Oneness of Creator God, The One Light. Blessings and peace, dear ones.
Allow for the natural unfolding of events surrounding these times of swift change. Abrupt shifts in focus will become necessary for MANY in the coming weeks, months, and years. This is to say that where you think you are heading is, in all likelihood, quite a bit different than where you will eventually be. Many of you will have experiences that will cause sudden and abrupt changes of priority and focus, thus leading you down a path you may never have considered prior.
Allow for the spontaneous unfolding of life and living. Be ever diligent to remain flexible in your thinking and reasoning, so as to allow for these sudden shifts in “reality”. In many cases your very ability to adapt to new and quickly changing situations will further enhance your survivability, and thus further your opportunities to experience and grow within the present chosen physical environment.
Never underestimate your ability to adapt to new situations. Regardless of age or state of physical health, and regardless of the amount of chaos that may be unfolding around you, with the proper mental outlook and ability to stay centered and balanced, you can connect within for the Guidance to find an appropriate course of action that will further enhance your experience.
In times of sudden change (many would call such events “disasters”), ones often become overwhelmed with the abruptness of the “reality” shift, and become paralyzed as they wrestle with the inner emotional energy surges of shock and disbelief. In such states of paralysis, these ones will be looking for answers and understanding, as well as guidance in terms of what they should do.
Be quick to ground yourself in an understanding of the Larger Perspective—in which you are a student in a schoolroom, and the experiences you encounter are for a reason. Whatever crosses your path is no accident, and there is opportunity to learn and grow from ALL things.
Regardless of your perceptions in a time of seeming chaos, please remember that ALL experiences have a POSITIVE growth potential associated with them when viewed from the spiritual level from which you all originate and shall return. Each day you are faced with a series of choices and decisions that further lead to new and forever changing situations.
Abrupt change often serves you in such a way that you are caused to more deliberately focus your attention in a manner that will quicken the process of making choices and decisions. In such times ones are often caused to focus upon the things in life that are REALLY important.

For example, let us consider the situation where you are on an airplane and, while in mid-flight, it becomes evident that there is a serious problem with the aircraft. It is suddenly announced that there is need to prepare for a crash landing.
What goes through your mind? Do you worry about the mortgage payment or what the stock market is doing? Do you worry about ANY of those “precious pots of gold” at the end of the ever elusive rainbow you’ve been chasing most of your life? No.
Most ones confronted with such situations quickly distill the clutter and superfluous “garbage” down to what is REALLY important. You ponder family and loved ones, and regret any missed opportunity to give them a hug and tell them one last time how much they are dearly appreciated and loved. This can be quite a powerful and insightful experience—especially for those who survive same. These “graduates” are often left with a very lasting appreciation for what is TRULY important in life.
In such situations, you will always regret recent harshness toward a loved one, and pray for the opportunity to “make things right”. Never does one pray for the opportunity to survive so that they can make their next credit card payment. Nor is it the fancy cars or the large houses or the bank accounts that may have once represented security and safety.
No, dear ones, the important things in life are the acts of kindness toward others and the expressions of appreciation for the subtle riches of, say, the grandchildren’s smiles when you give them a hug, or the opportunity to tell someone how special they really are.
Sudden, impacting change should thus be viewed as a great catalyst for inner growth and understanding. Never are such abrupt shifts actually the “disasters” they are often regarded to be from a purely physical perspective.
ALL experience offers you an opportunity to express your uniqueness, as well as appreciate the uniqueness in others. Sometimes you will playfully ask one another: “What if you were given only 24 hours to live? What would you do?” This may seem like an innocent game, however, there is a bit of wisdom in pondering such queries with a moment of serious contemplation.
Those who go through and survive events that are called “near-death experiences” often emerge as changed people. There is usually a greater appreciation for the more simple and subtle things in life—especially interactions with loved ones who may have previously been taken for granted.
Would not such LEARNED appreciation be a valuable lesson to acquire without the need for a seemingly negative event? Often souls experiencing in the physical become too caught-up in a multitude of distractions, and severely neglect the REAL reason they came forth to experience in the physical. Usually the “tragedies” which ones are faced with leave them with a greater awareness of what they had, but simply did not fully appreciate until it was “too late”.
You ones can avoid many lessons of perceived harshness if you learn to appreciate those seemingly small things in life that often get taken for granted. Take the time to pull yourself out of those constant preoccupations with self-distraction long enough to really see what it is that is TRULY important. There is no need to wait until the time when it is “too late”—and yet the majority do exactly that.
Be quick to give appreciation to others and be slow to criticize. Look not to blame another for YOUR emotional state, and know that YOU are responsible for your “bad” days as much as the “good” ones.
There are no victims in life; all experiences that directly or indirectly impact you are for one very good reason: to help you recognize and appreciate the Lighted God-Force Potential within self. In doing so, you will then be able to better recognize same within ALL others. A great, effortless appreciation for ALL ones and ALL life will then become more of a part of your experience, and you will begin to know what TRUE happiness is.
Learn to live your life without regrets. If you have regrets now, then do your best to alleviate them. There is no need to dwell upon past “mistakes”. The very fact that you can recognize a past choice or decision as a “mistake” says that you have learned a valuable lesson from same. Take the value from the experience and go forward with a greater understanding, and use it to help others.
Often the best method of teaching is to use yourself as the example, for it shows understanding and compassion, and therefore the impact is much greater. Please know that you are never too old, sick, or weak to either teach another or learn something new yourself.
One of the most valuable skills you can learn while in the physical is to recognize the many subtle things in your life for which to be appreciative. Each person reading this message can find much more than one thing in their life to be appreciative for having as a part of their experience.
Look at the seemingly small things and examine them closely. What is common in each? How can the small insights help you to notice even more things in your life about which to be appreciative? Time spent examining these small, subtle things can and will lead to great insights, understanding, and wisdom.
Knowledge without wisdom most often leads to corruption and, eventually, destruction. Seek out true understanding and wisdom, and all the riches of heaven will be poured out to you, and you will know true happiness. Seek out the physical world’s “riches” as a seeming means to finding happiness, and you will, without fail, be creating a cold and lonely “prison” from which you will eventually seek escape.
Look inward for your Guidance at all times and learn to trust your intuition. Your Inner Guidance (conscience) is what will enable you to adapt to any situation and see good in all experience, regardless of the physical outcome.
I am Esu “Jesus” Sananda, a fellow traveler along the infinite journey of Life. I am merely one who has traveled a bit further down the “road” of Understanding, and I have come to appreciate the opportunities, like this one, to help any and all who seek my assistance.
May the Light of Father-Mother Creator Source—The One Light—forever be recognized within your heart, mind, and soul, so that you never feel that you are somehow abandoned or forsaken, for that shall never be. You are dearly loved and appreciated without conditions.In Light, Love, and Appreciation—Salu.
