Joshua often reminds me to let my life be fun. His frequent and hearty laughter is woven into his communication with me and others. Joshua holds a lighthearted and optimistic view point around the transition of our golden age. Above all, Joshua doesn’t pressure me to do anything. In his compassionate presence, I feel unconditional love.
While he would like for me to actively teach and speak about the Seventh Major Understanding, there’s no pressure and no shadow of doubt that I am loved just the way I am. I need not do anything to be loved.
In the practice of letting my journey be more fun and lighthearted, Joshua urged me to release the notion that I am a light worker. Rather, he advised me to adopt the belief that I am a light player. Emerson said, “This world we live in is but thickened light.”
Joshua invites me to play within the thickened light like a child on the playground rather than a worker in the field. Joshua values service, artistry, and expertise, and he encourages everyone to play joyfully in the thickened light. For some of us, like me, the concepts of work and play don’t easily align. I admire people for whom work IS play. Jolly good! For me, and others like me, it is a welcome reminder to play in the light and to work less.
In a recent interview about transcending limiting beliefs, Joshua moved me to release the concept of developing tools for a toolbox. Instead of talking about tools for us to work with, Joshua playfully inspired me to refer to beneficial tools as toys. I could hear him laughing as he compelled me to exchange my tools for toys. The suggested concepts didn’t change, yet my attitude and desire to apply the concepts shifted.
Oh yes, I love to play while I’m not as eager to work. Transforming tools into toys and digging into my toy box to discover how many fun games I can play sounds inviting to me. I’d much rather play than work. (Did you hear me giggle when you read that?)
Beloved teachers, healers, and leaders of change, I hear many of us speak of this life as the classroom. Surely we learn much during the adventure of a lifetime. I learn the most from the teachers who bring fun into the lessons. I invite you onto the playground with me. I’m here exploring the toys in my toy box, and I’ll gladly share my toys with you. I am also curious about the toys you have, and I hope you will share them with me.
Let’s play and laugh as we take our toys into the classroom. Let it be fun.
I love you.
