Hope is the thing with feathers…

Linda Adsetts and The Group are here with their weekly Go for the Joy message. Enjoy!

“Hope is thing with feathers” by Angela Callanan


Hope is a four letter word-the good kind! But, take a moment and feel your energy as you say that word. It is a word that feels light as a feather, as Emily Dickinson so eloquently wrote.

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune–without the words,
And never stops at all

Hope is the feeling that things will get better, despite outward appearances and despite our current experience. Hope carries us forward when it seems as if our world is crumbling.

Every breath we take contains hope. I just heard that from The Group. (smile)

We are on this earth until we decide we aren’t. If you are still breathing, you have decided to stay, at least for the moment, and isn’t that all any of us have?

What if you could be in the moment of the breath, of hope, every day? What would your life look like knowing that you, magnificent creator that you are, infinite being of love and light, has more stuff to experience. It isn’t about the doing and it is all about the experience. Infinite beings just be. Infinite beings are about experience.

What if you didn’t have to do anything in particular unless you chose it, because it felt light as a feather?

Sometimes in a moment it doesn’t but if you expanded your awareness outwards from that moment you might find that it does feel light for the doing. You go to your parents anniversary party, because you feel the relief of love that ripples out from the visit. Maybe, you would rather have done something else, because the whole family thing is a pile of you know what! But what if you chose from the place of total awareness? What would that occasion feel like from a place of an aware choice? Not so bad after all?

What if hope is love for all of what is? What if hope was an expression of non-judgment? You as an infinite being know that there are things afoot, but, as you play human you can’t see what is afoot and you judge yourself, your life, others based only on what you think your know! But we don’t know and by the thinking we know we shut off the infinite possibilities that are there waiting to be utilised!

Each moment is different. There may be similarities to other moments but they are never the same because we are constantly evolving, everyone. Some of you are doing it in very small increments and it seems like nothing much is happening but one aha and everything can change! Does that give you hope?

Nothing is writ in stone dear ones. Your world is constantly evolving beyond anything that could have ever been anticipated. Hold the hope for heaven on earth. Why else would your new ones be birthed? Do you think that they have something for you? Do you think that they know something you have forgotten?

Each of you are magnificent beings of light and love. Doesn’t that feel light as a feather? Truth feels light-now what will you do with that truth?

  1. This was incredibly uplifting! And the Emily Dickinson quote is a favorite. It’s been a tough week, and this gave me courage to tackle the next days with more grace, gratitude hope. :o)
