Connor said...

Dearest Friend,

I know you, and you know me. We both know our relationship is strong. With that said, I have read your responses to these questions, and I know they are real. Though I have told you many times, I feel I must tell you again: Thank You for everything. My life, my faith, everything that makes me unique. All my life I have asked for one thing: wisdom. To understand the ways of the universe and approach events in my life wisely. Being the amazing love-filled friend you are, you have granted me this gift. But I must ask for one more thing. It is not material or necessarily for my personal gain, so I ask for this completely selflessly, and I think it would be so cool to see you straight up type it back to me! (You know how I am, I find joy in things like that haha!) Plus, I really need a direct answer to this question... it's the only one I can think to ask... Anyway here it goes: Will you give me the courage to express my faith openly to others, and even when they mock me or make harsh and cruel jokes, give me the courage to stand strong and defend my love for you publicly in they eyes of those who are blinded by hate? How can I go about doing this? (If you feel as though I asked two questions, please just answer one. Thanks! :] )

I love you so much.

Your good friend,

Connor

Answer from God through Carley:

"I do so enjoy you.  Within you is all the courage you will ever need.  Your faith can be expressed in so many different ways.  You can speak about your relationship with me, you can live your life as an example of how joy-filled and peaceful a life can be,  you can teach meditation or yoga or preach in a church to those looking to know me better.  You can even run a blog.  As the giver of free-will, I really want you to hear me, and speak to those who are ready to and who want to listen.  Imposing your beliefs on another is not what I want you to do.  Every being is on their place on their path just as they have agreed to be.  I have used you as a teacher for others and I will continue to do so as long as you remain willing to teach, but honor the free-will given to every being.  You can only control your words and actions and trying to impose your beliefs on another does not honor me.  Live your life true to the beautiful being that you are, use and continue to gather wisdom.  Be the unassuming observer and keep your ready smile ever-ready.  You really have no idea how many you have already lifted up just by offering a simple smile."
