My bad, your name probably isn’t James. We have the same soul, but not the same name, I’m sure. For all I know, you’re a woman or maybe even an animal of some sort. I heard the Divine likes to switch things up a bit.
You won’t remember me or the life I lived. I mean you shouldn’t. This is your time now. The only thing we have in common is the soul you now possess. My body once harbored the soul your body harbors now. Breathe. I know this is a lot to take in.
This once in a lifetime opportunity is just that, so pay very close attention. I want to tell you that we—you and I, have done this life thing many, many times before. Why? I’m not quite sure of that yet, but I think the idea is to grow and become better, or perhaps to remember what we once were. For what reason, I’m unsure, but one thing I will tell you is we are getting better.
Let’s not worry about what others think right now. The fact that this is possible must mean it is meant to be. I want you to think of me as a mentor; someone who is willing to share some knowledge and perhaps boost your confidence a bit, so you can overcome some obstacles much easier than I did….we did…whatever!
I cannot give you the experience of truth, for that is something you will have to discover for yourself. What I can do is point you in the right direction. I’ve gotten us to this point and now it is time for you to move us ahead even more.
This will be the first of many letters to come, so for this first one, I will keep it simple. Like I mentioned earlier, I know this is a lot to take in, so feel free to breathe and take breaks along the way.
The first thing I want to tell you is that you have a tremendous gift. A gift that took me a while to understand and even longer to figure out how to use it for the greater good.
You have a way of bringing out the best in everything and everyone. Know that. Recognize that. Step into that divine role with ease for it is your divine right. People are drawn to you and you are drawn to them. You make them feel good about themselves, and in turn, you are filled with content and purpose.
You give them hope. And let me tell you, this world needs that more now than ever. You see the best in people and your empathy skills are off the charts. You make them laugh with vigor and genuinely smile on the inside as well as the outside. A gift, my love…a gift indeed.
Do not be afraid of this gift. Be generous with it. Share it. Lead by example and be ready for the rewards that come with sharing your gift—they come back ten fold. Breathe.
It is probably best I stop here. I don’t want to overwhelm you. We have quite the journey ahead. Let this soak in for a bit. When you’re ready, there will be another letter for you to read.
