Gabriel: Desire is the propelling force that keeps you moving, keeps you going forward. Desire isn’t a bad thing. What should you do with your situation? I know what you are referring to. Your definition of what is best for another person is not their definition of what is best for them. They have altogether different plans.
So do you love this person? And do you love them enough to allow them to manifest their desire even though it is not yours?
Questioner: I am really attempting that.
Gabriel: She thinks that I don’t know that she means “trying!” Beloved Woman, releasing to God, to their highest good, surrendering it to Christ, however you want to term it, means that you are willing to allow this entity, this individual to live the experiences they have created and to come to the outcomes that they desire and love them anyway even if they are not doing what you think is for their highest good.
You don’t know what is in their soul. You don’t know what past lives they have. You don’t know what bits and pieces of those past lives they have brought forth into this life that they need to deal with and in dealing with them they have chosen the way they are going to deal with them. It is not your choice. It is their choice and the only thing you have to do is to love them anyway.
Someday that person will come to you and say, “All through the years I have watched you love me even when I was so terribly unlovable. I have watched you worry about me, care about me even when I didn’t care about myself. And I want you to know that I love you and appreciate all of those years.”
- Archangel Gabriel, KNOWING ABSOLUTE JOY, February 6, 1998, Pgs. 32-33. Taken from the questions asked by various people in the audience and Gabriel’s response.
