The differentiation and the Choice

I have come today to give my Teaching by telling you a story.
Once upon a time, there were two birds.
One of them sang in the tree near the road in front of the house, there was its nest, and the other sang in the house – it was in a cage.
The first bird sang to God and everyone could listen to it and enjoy the songs – everyone who walked along the road near the house and the tree. The other had been trained for a long time by listening to different songs to imitate them, and also to do different tricks in the cage only for a select circle of people, who were allowed to listen to it for a fixed time and an entrance fee.
One sang without expecting anything in return, and God took care of it in the most wonderful way, so it had everything it needed to live well, to sing for everyone and make them happy. The other sang only for its subsistence because it received food only when it sang, and when it sang particularly well, it was rewarded with what it liked most.
The first sang constantly, every day, in ecstasy, because it was happy and free, and its soul was joyful. The second sang only when it was given a sign that it could start singing, when people had gathered in the hours specified for it.
Both birds sing!
The first sings only one song, a simple one, but performed in happiness, and carrying the vibration of the Divine Love, Joy and Freedom. The second performs a wide repertoire that satisfies the senses of the listeners, thirsty for something new. Its songs, however, are not performed with Joy and they have no connection with the higher worlds.
Everyone makes their own choices where to go and which song to listen to, and whether to listen at all.
He who resides in Joy and God is in his heart, will be attracted to the tune that sounds from the tree near the road.
He who is always looking for something new and better, will pay to listen to the 'rich' repertoire.
He who has negative attitude, full of sorrow for himself, doubts and condemnation, can be irritated passing by the tree and hearing the cheerful song.
He who is too absorbed in his own thoughts, feelings and aspirations, will either pass, without even hearing the song that sounds a few steps away from him, or if he hears it, he will not pay attention to it.
And he to whom the whole world is wrong, could even feel desire to throw a stone to interrupt the song.
The birds and their songs are a connection to God, but are the birds singing in the cage of the illusion a connection as well?
Beloved, only when you accept everything as it is, and retain your positivity and harmony can you raise your consciousness.
Only when you elevate your consciousness can you acquire the ability to differentiate the real from the illusionary.
Only when you differentiate can you become capable of making the right from the Divine perspective choices in life.
Only when you make the right choices can you reach God!
