Heavenletter #4321 Promises, Promises, September 23, 2012
No longer are you to make excuses. First of all, there is no need to make excuses. Take responsibility. Do not blame yourself, and do not make excuses. Take responsibility.
If you say you are going to do something, do it, or don’t say it. Watch what you say.
It is wonderful to offer the world and Heaven to someone, yet, if you cannot fulfill it, do not say it. With the world, even though it is all a dream, do not promise unless you will deliver.
If your world seems to be in a shambles, then perhaps you have been untrue to your word.
You don’t have to be everything to everyone. You do not have to blow up your image and make it unwieldy.
Your word matters. It matters very much. Align your word. Let your word fit your life. Nothing is to keep you from fulfilling your word. Your word is to be gold. Nothing less.
Promises do not need to be made. Promises, once made, well, then, make a point to fulfill them, or don’t make them. This is a simple equation.
Your heart may be too big for you to match. This is not unforgivable, and yet it does not give tribute to yourself. If you appoint yourself to a responsibility, then be responsible. Let your word be your bond. Your word is to have boundaries. Your word is meant to come true.
What a change there will be in the world when promises are solid. Promises that are not made true are weak-kneed. Be valid. Be true to your word.
You can inspire without making promises. You can nourish and uplift without making promises. Promises, once made, are to be kept. Promises are not meant to be fly-by-night.
When your word and actions do not match, you are being faithless to yourself. You are being errant. You are just talking. You are blowing up a balloon that will pop.
Can you change your mind? Certainly, yet changing your mind is not to be a habit. Speaking truth is meant to be a habit.
Promise little to others, and give much. Make your deeds greater than your promises.
We are talking about character, beloveds. Your word is to be strong, not weak. You understand that with false promises, it is yourself you let down. Fulfill your promises, or don’t promise. Live up to your promises. Live up to your promise. Do not be a word-monger. Honor your word. Deliver your promises. Live up to your image. Never are you meant to be a false prophet.
Why do you make promises? What is the need of them?
Delivery companies deliver. They believe in their responsibility. A delivery company that promises and does not deliver loses business. What happens is that others lose heart. Make sure you are a strengthener of hearts, not a disappointer of hearts.
A promise once made is to be kept. Desire much, yet be careful what you vow. When you cannot maintain a vow, you cannot maintain it. Ah, desire is better than duty. Do not give big words that are hollow. Round out your words.
Know yourself. Know what you are capable of. Be true to yourself. Do not incur debts that you cannot pay. A promise is a debt, you understand. I am giving a word to the wise, beloveds. Do not dance around Truth. Be it. Live it. Honor it. Give it. The closer you are to Truth, the more solid the ground you walk on. In the realm of promises, be a rock.
