I enter into a state of prayer and communion with God by focusing on Divine Light and Love. This state is so deep that what I receive will be lost to memory unless I write it down immediately. Sometimes it occurs in the middle of the night, while I am driving and am undistracted, or even while I’m eating alone. It is not a matter of just receiving a message but also an experience of Divine Presence. The impression it makes on me is so profound that I think I could never forget it; however, it is too deep to be impressed on the conscious memory, much like dream. Once the messages are written down, reading them triggers the memory of the experience. That memory is of Holiness, Love, and Light.
Look for the Heart of your Master, the Christ, in the bosom of your brothers, no matter how sick or how vile they may appear to your physical senses. By expecting to see His Holy Presence there, you allow yourself to see through the mask of personality and body and encounter My Spirit, and this makes it possible for you to touch their hearts. This will not fail to cause a stirring deep within them, although they, and you, may not notice it. This is the healing that you allow to be brought from Me to them through you. This is your mission, and I have ordained you to do it. September 12, 2016
It is difficult for you to have to watch someone who is ill or otherwise going through a difficult experience, particularly when you are doing all you know to do to alleviate conditions, and nothing seems to be helping. You must try to remember that sometimes such things are required as a part of the long-range development of many souls. What may appear to you as unacceptable circumstances may really be the blessing that will lead a wandering soul back home to Me. Your role, the help that you bring, is to stand by that soul focusing on My Spirit within it and offering thanks for the holiness of it. You certainly may ask for every blessing that is appropriate at that time and offer unconditional love. It is at such trying times that your brothers and sisters especially need your faithful support and never-ending love. You may well be the lifeline of hope that is needed. Keep in mind that you may not notice anything that will give any indication that what you are doing is helping, but accept My promise that no such offering of Love is ever lost. Such offerings are as garlands of roses surrounding the suffering soul, just waiting to be accepted. I send you forth as My emissary to seek out these souls and offer the comfort and healing power of a holy embrace. I am not deceived in My choice of you. You are perfectly prepared to accept this mission—as an honor and as a joy.
Watching others go through hardship and pain oppresses you because of your love for them, and you do whatever you can to help them. Yet, you must bring all things to Me and release them. I will make known to you all that you need to do. Be not dismayed if all I tell you to do is to hold them in an embrace in your heart, and do not belittle it. You have no idea what great value it has for them.
The word of the loving Father came to me in the middle of the night saying: Your prayers are powerful, My child. When you come before Me acknowledging My Holiness and the Holiness of My Spirit within you, that can literally change the course of your life and that of your brothers. It can change the path of your country. Though correction of the course may still be necessary, the manner of the unfolding of it depends on your willingness to earnestly come before Me with purity of heart, petitioning for your brothers and sisters, and seeking to commune with Me. Do not fail to do this! If you knew the difference it makes and the responsibility you have, it would dominate your thoughts and direct your attention all through the day and even the night. I wait for you. I expect you. My dear child, do not disappoint Me! The outcome of the world depends in part on you.
You must put your faith in Me and trust that when you do, I look after you according to My Will: what I deem to be the best for you and your development. What you consider to be best is based on your very limited knowledge and is brought about by your opinions and desires. I will lead you as gently as is at all possible out of the gutters of indulgence in things that cannot truly satisfy you. If you cultivate trust in Me, you will notice that in the insecurity of not knowing what is going on and what will happen, you begin to feel My Presence and to release your fear of the unknown. That will bring you comfort as nothing else can bring. You will then know what walking with Me means, and I will become your first love.
Pause and turn inward. Listen intently for My still, small voice. I never cease to call to you, and My voice is one of Love, imploring you to, for a moment, let your attention to the distractions of your soul give way to attraction to a holiness that is healing balm to your troubled spirit. I hold you in My arms and weep that you are not even aware that I hold you. You brought your suffering and despair upon yourself, and I would cleanse you and heal you. I knock continuously but quietly, nonintrusively. You must be attracted to Me and turn to Me of your own free will. I will not, I cannot, force it upon you. If you become quiet and lift up your heart to Me, you will surely feel a new hope and notice a joy deep within. You will be glad. I await your return with yearning.
I never stop calling to my children and waiting for their return from detours into dreams that melt at a touch. The call must be intensified if there is no response. Just a little willingness opens the door to possibilities you cannot imagine. It saddens Me to see that some will not turn and seek something else until their pain, the pain of separation, has become so great they can no longer can endure it. The distractions you worship, your idols, are often in your mind—are ideologies that change with every whim.
You may suddenly have a problem for which you don’t see a solution, and you pray to Me about it. Then when the problem seems to have vanished into thin air in what seems to have been a natural way, you forget to thank Me. Have you not realized that more often than not your prayers are answered in ways that appear to be a coincidence or a natural progression of events rather than as a sudden and spectacular miracle? I am ever there watching over you, and when you ask in love, especially when you ask in love for another person, you allow your heart to open up wide to receive. It is true that when you are asking for yourself, you often are begging with a closed heart, whereas when you are asking for someone else, you tend to open your heart and radiate love. This love for others is commendable, but you must also learn to love yourself and believe that you deserve My attention as much as anyone else. The best way to learn this is to seek Me in the heart of your brothers and sisters. When you truly expect to see me there, it causes your own heart to open up, and you experience Me there. Then you smile, and a gentleness comes over you—the gentleness of a child of God.
(The Master, Jesus Christ, gave this message.)
I came forth, born of the Father’s Heart, to bring healing, comfort, and hope to the suffering masses of earth. I came to show the Way of Truth, the Way of Oneness. I gave the example of looking only at the Spirit of God in each one and giving no acknowledgment of reality to identification with the mask of imperfection. I looked upon the most vicious ones as simply deluded brothers and sisters who just needed to have the veil, the mask, of error parted so that they could behold the brilliance of holiness indwelling all creation. I am Infinite Love, and I have infinite patience with the process of dissolving the errors of perception, the errors of thinking and believing that the images of separation and an inadequate state of being have any reality. When you are ready to rise up and be freed from the horrors of nothingness in which you think you live and are caught, you need only call out to Me. I stand ever there, anticipating your call, so that I may take you by the hand and lift you up.
When a brother or sister finally cries out for help, that is what opens the door for help to be received. Until that point is reached, help will not be accepted. This begins the process of turning back towards the Light that will lead to recognition of true reality. This is the point where the grip on meaningless things that rob the soul of joy begins to loosen. Be ever so patient with them, for so have I been with you. Just talk to their souls in spirit, and trust that their souls do hear. Your lack of insistence and your gentleness as you speak of and radiate love is the key that will get their attention. Never give up. You have no deadline to meet. Persisting with patience does not mean being insistent. It means offering undying love. I will support you in every endeavor.
Do you not hear them calling out, calling for love, calling for help? Or do you not know what that call sounds like? It sounds like frustration and anger, it sounds like pain and sickness, it sounds like depression, self-loathing, and hopelessness. The sound rises up to Me loud and clear, and I look to you to assist in answering it. Many of them need to hear My answer coming through you. Oh, do not fail them! They have become lost in the labyrinth of their minds. I come to them as you, just as I come to you as them, offering Love and Light, Peace and Joy, hope and a realization of true identity. You are one of my lifelines to them. Reach out to them. Lift them up. Show them how happy you are to embrace them.
Bring them before Me with great love and admiration in your heart. Ask Me to remove, at the time that best serves them and to the extent it is appropriate, any shackles that obstruct their experience and knowing of Me. They may well not grasp at first how you are being of service to them, but they will notice a positive change within. You are like a shepherd who goes out looking for lost sheep, one who gathers in unto the harvest. You know why you are here, and you look neither to the right nor to the left, but focus on the task that you have been given. Set your intention every day to always look to Me and to surrender yourself without reservation so that I may send you forth to serve your brothers and sisters. The detour into the perception of separation has resulted in a deep sleep of the soul, but now the time has come to set that aside and awaken into glorious reality. You help your brother and sisters do this by refusing to accept any identity for them other than that of My Spirit within. Consider each one as Myself come to you to reach forth through the mask of perceived neediness and incompletion to embrace you. Be adamant in this, and you will bring many home to Me.
I bring them to you in the night and in the day, whether in their bodies or in spirit, whenever they are in need of, or are ready for, communion with you. What is asked of you is to always be willing and ready to drop all other things and respond as a true child of Mine, ordained to be a vessel, ever empty of worldly concerns and thankful for another opportunity. This is not to be a lean harvest but rather a rich one, for you and many others are prepared to wipe away the dross and clutter that block those in need from entering of their own accord. Think not that some do not deserve to be gathered in, for where life is, there My Spirit indwells, and where My Spirit is, it can come forth, shining away all darkness. Some only need just a little beckoning, and if they feel unconditional love coming from you, they will drop their guard and rush toward you in great joy. Then they will join with you in this holy work.
When you come to them, speak gently and say, “Come my love, let me, in the name of the Blessed Christ, remove all that is not in accordance with the Father’s Will for you at this time. Then you will feel relieved of the many burdens you have carried for so long, and you will be ready to go with me before Him and ask for every blessing you can accept. You will beam and have joy, and I will treasure you for your beauty forevermore.” Rescuing the lost and desperate ones is why you came to earth. You accepted this mission before you came. Do not get lost in all the activities and distractions, all the turmoil and strife. Keep a laser focus on your goal, your purpose in being here, and walk past all the other things as if they were flittering pictures on a movie screen. I will tell you which ones to pause and direct your attention to.
You always have access to Me when you come in love asking to be the empty vessel through which your brothers and sisters are blessed. Your love and intercession help remove blocks that make them feel abandoned and alone. Speak to them of My Spirit within them. Reach forth and touch their hearts as you ask them to open the doors thereof and allow you to behold Me there. Your unwavering confidence that I am there will move them deeply, for they are not used to having someone think so highly of them. You are an ambassador of My Love, and bringing My Love to them is your function. In order to do this you must have no doubts that I am always there and am ever ready to support you. This is a holy mission you have been given, and you will only be able to perform it if there is no unholiness in your approach or purpose. Your recognition of My Holiness as you come before Me, along with and a love for your fellow humans that exceeds your love for anything else, including your love for yourself, and your total surrender to Me, is what is required if you desire to be My emissary of healing and rescue during this time of harvest. Consider this: There is no higher purpose for your life on earth, and no other endeavor can bring you closer to Me. Only you can make the choice for yourself.
Ask that I remove the darkness that obscures your view of Me, and I will part the clouds of your illusory world that make you feel abandoned so that you, at first with faltering steps, venture forth, but then rush breathlessly into my arms with ecstatic joy to know that you do rest in My Arms and dwell eternally in my Heart. You will then decide to join My dedicated children in rescuing your brothers and sisters who flounder about in the ignorance of darkness and despair. I hold you ever close to Me.
Oh, precious child, if you only knew the joy I have when you turn towards Me and with childlike innocence ask of Me. My Joy could not but prepare the way for you, providing every possible opportunity and protecting you from all hindrances and delays. Yes, the long wait was tugging at My Heart, but My Joy is ineffable. I lovingly caress you all through the day and into the night.
(The following story showed me that no soul is ever truly lost no matter how evil it was on earth. In August 2013 I was sitting alone in the apartment of one of my friends in Germany and doing my praying and laying-on-of-hands in spirit. Suddenly I thought I was imagining that Adolf Hitler was standing at my left side. Then I realized that he really was there. I have never sought to become aware of the souls of deceased persons, although I might pray for them. I wasn’t afraid, but I certainly was wary. I asked, “What do you want?” He said, “Love.” Not trusting him, I said, “If you are really serious, I will take you to Christ and ask Him to take you to realms of Light and Love.” To my surprise he accepted, so I took him to Christ and left him there. Later I contemplated why he had come to me. It came to me that he trusted that I would be willing to help him and that it would not have happened if I had not been there with the loving group of spiritual people I had been associated with during that first week in August. Then I had a feeling of joy, great joy, that I could be a part in the redemption of a soul that had lost its way to such a great extent.
This experience made me think of Jesus’ statements in Matthew 18:11 and 14 that it was not God’s will that one soul should be lost and that He, Jesus, was come to save that which was lost. I always liked the statement that there was more joy in heaven over one sinner that repented than over ninety nine just persons that need no repentance. (See Luke 15:7.) Then I remembered Isaiah 1:18: “Though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” Also, I can’t overlook the story of Saul, who persecuted the early Christians, but later, as Paul, was a great apostle of Christ.)
There is no evil that is beyond redemption, no sin that cannot be washed clean. Do not hesitate to approach Me and ask for help for even the most vile person imaginable. Always remember that your Master once said, “I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.) (See Matthew 9:13.) Go and do likewise. You are My laborers of the harvest.
(I was rereading the chapters “A Reluctant Soul Accepts to Come to Earth” and “Excerpts from a Talk with Jesus” in my book, Dwell in Love, and I felt the Presence of Jesus powerfully. His Love made me smile and laugh.)
You need only ask for My Presence and believe that I am there in order to feel My Love. When you feel It, you will desire to make a commitment to help anchor that Love in the earth. Just the memory of some past experience in your own life in which you felt abandoned and in despair is all it takes for you to feel such compassion for your fellow humans that you will want to surrender your whole being to Me so that I, as you, can bring about healing on earth in every way that is possible and appropriate. Allowing Me to be who you are means releasing all obstacles in your life so its coming about, thus making it possible for My Love to touch not only all whom you meet and think about but also all things and being on earth. Keep your focus ever on the holiness of My Presence in the heart of each one. At first you may need to do this deliberately so as not to yield to the temptation of accepting the forms and situations of earth as ultimately real. If you let your focus and attention stray, you will be like Peter walking on water when he noticed the boisterous wind and, as a consequence, began to sink. The physical senses will try to snatch you away from Me, but you must adamantly put them aside and look single-mindedly to Me. When you do that, you will feel My Embrace and know that you are safe. I urge you to make the total commitment to assisting your brothers and sisters by offering yourself unconditionally to Me. They are crying out for help, and that is why you are here.
I once said, “As you do it unto one of the least of these…you do it unto Me.” When there are those who offend you or attack you, pause and think of My spirit within them. As you focus on the beauty and love of My Spirit, you will feel less threatened, and you will feel the guardrail you have erected before your heart begin to release. Think of the offence as an error you can look past. Think of your hurt feelings as a result of your failure to recognize Me there. Then you will smile, and there will be a radiance about you as you feel My embrace.
I provide limitless opportunities to those who have the willingness to assist all souls who have any inclination at all to being harvested at this time. Just look to Me with love in your hearts for the lost souls of earth. Make room in your busy lives and accept to set other things aside when the call comes. Often only a couple of minutes is needed: time to acknowledge holiness in a brother or sister and ask that the heart’s door be opened so that I may bless you through him or her. It is your tenderness and gentleness in making your request, a nonthreatening demeanor combined with total love, that will melt any resistance to you. There is no soul that will not recognize love and be moved by it, at least to some extent. For some, it will take a while to overcome fear engendered by past experiences, but it is your continued offering of a love, which is not insistent and makes no demands, that will help them to eventually accept. This may be a new approach for you, but if you will let Me fill your heart with My Being, you will know the quiet joy that patience and serenity brings. And you will have a radiance about you that brings peace, My Peace.

Then you will smile, and there will be a radiance about you as you feel My embrace.
In the shifting sands of earth life you find no stable ground, but when you seek the Eternal Reality behind the perceptions and apparent forms of physicality, you align yourself with Truth. You must first seek to look through the veil of appearances, imagining pure Holiness beyond, for only so do you loosen your grip on the deceptive realm of form and delusion, allowing it to drop away as you stand transfixed on Me. Then you know that you are communing with Me, that you are one with Me, and it frees you from all fear and despair. You are no longer OF the earth but rather an emissary TO the earth. Your focus in life changes drastically. Rather than being tossed about by the winds of change, you are stable and focused, with one goal. You cannot be moved by situations and apparent challenges. You look only to Me. The choice for Truth is one that only you can make for yourself. If you could see the consequences of making the choice or not making it, you would understand how important it is. There are many who look forward to the blessings your choice will bring to them. Will you make them wait?
When you turn everything over to me, I take care of all things, but you must trust Me and not lose hope because you do not understand or don’t think what is coming about is sent by me. I will teach you to trust by putting you in situations where you have to trust or give up. But don’t give up, because I will always give you indications that I am guiding you. I send you where there are those in need and who can accept help through you. I will put the appropriate words in your mouth, and if you have surrendered all to Me, you will say them without thinking about their effects. You may think that releasing all things to Me is difficult, but it really is easier than trying to figure what to do and say on your own. You can rely on Me. Take My promises to heart. I have never failed to keep a promise.
Give attention and listen to the words of your Heavenly Father, out of Whose Heart you were born. Every thought, word, and deed has an effect. Because of this you will eventually reach a point where you turn back from your ghastly imaginations of reality. You need only offer a little willingness to turn away from the window of mirages and back towards the Light whence you came. If you offer this willingness, you will be supported from every side. If you do not, the pain of perceived separation from Me, and the accompanying loneliness, will grow stronger and get your attention. My Love for you would not be total if I did not allow this to happen. Those who would lure you away from Me will not be given unlimited power to entice and seduce you.
As you look, about you and you observe the expressions of those who have no inkling of purity, of My Spirit, be not dismayed, but rather let it be an impetus to reach out and align your consciousness and your heart with Me. Be assured that this aligning is the best thing you can do to recall your brothers from their illusions, to awaken them to the reality of divine Spirit and Love. This alignment with Me is your offering for your brothers, and the effects are far beyond what you can see. This is your mission. Do not fail to do it.
Going deep within and being anchored in My Spirit not only helps you to remain serene during periods of high activity, or even when there is danger, but also affects the situations you are involved in and all those around you. This is part of the reason you came to earth at this time. Agitated circumstances are a reflection of the decision that was made by souls a long time ago to attempt to be separate from Me. Serenity is a state of peace that comes upon a soul in response to a soft and low vibration emanating from Spirit. It calms troubled souls and earthly conditions where there is lack of it. You can help bring it about and commune with Me by softly humming or chanting a tone. Those who are conscious of their connection with me dwell in Peace.
You say you seek Me and do not find Me, but you have not learned how to quiet your galloping mind and enter into the quietness. Ask for help in doing this. But then you must also do your part and cease to jump from one thought or action to another. Once you do that, then allow yourself to believe that you will encounter Me there, but don’t form your own ideas of what that experience will be. And don’t expect high drama. Remember this: “The Lord was not in the wind…The Lord was not in the earthquake…The Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice.” I am known in the stillness. Offer yourself to be My servant, and wait for My response. Yes, wait. Wait, content to enjoy the expectation of My coming, and to know My nearness as the doors of your heart swing wide open and love flows forth from you to Me. When this happens, you will feel yourself enveloped in My Love. You then have no expectations of tasks to be assigned by Me for you to perform, but still, you will have placed yourself totally at My disposal. In the meantime, you bask in My Love. (Truncated quotation from I Kings 19:11, 12)
(I had been thinking about the unbridled violence in the world today and Jesus’ words “Resist not evil,” as recorded in Mathew 5:39. I asked for a message from God to give us a deeper understanding of our role as children of God.)
Blessed are those who keep the faith and do not despair. Even in times of tribulation and turmoil, you must keep your eyes, your focus, on Holy Light and My Presence, for this lessens the degree of negativity and your experience of it. I prepare a way through every difficulty. Your concern for your brothers and sisters and the Love you radiate to them is of great significance. Every beneficial opportunity is offered to each one, and they must choose. Be not troubled; be not afraid (see John 14:27); but join in Love, confident that you are not abandoned. Those who turn away from Love are not given limitless license to create havoc and destroy.
Those in communion with Me and aligned with My Heart seek to do everything possible that is beneficial to the world. Compassion is a part of the expression of their hearts. In looking upon the world and all the goings-on in it, they are at times distressed by the lack of love, the violence even, that they see. They offer acknowledgement of My Spirit within to all their brothers and sisters and seek to also touch the personalities and bodies of those around them——the victims who are suffering, as well as those who are the perpetrators of violence——with My Love, and they wonder if there is more than acknowledgement of Holiness that they should offer. Although you recognize the lack of ultimate reality in egos and bodies, your compassion does not allow you to ignore them. And even though you see that doing things on the lower levels is only a temporary patch, you know deep within that this is often the right thing to do. When you are anchored in My Heart and you allow me to direct you, you will know that acts to restrain evil are not giving reality to it and establishing a battle between good and evil but rather a way of allowing My Spirit to touch and give evidence of My Existence on an outer level that will be more readily recognized by those who are deluded by a perception of separation. Resisting evil when you are not anchored in My Spirit, resisting or fighting with anger and revenge, is what you are admonished not to do. Allowing Me, through you, to act in ways to diminish suffering and express Love on all levels when you are anchored in My Spirit is a holy task, and you are asked to do it. Not all persons indulging in cruelty are blind. Their selfish acts are cries for Love, and often they are deeply moved by acts of restraint coming from those who are extending Love, and those who are not moved will recognize that they have not found an enemy to engage in battle with. Those who must learn their lessons by reaping the results of their hardheartedness on the earthly level are deserving of your constant prayers and embraces so that their minds will be healed and their hearts awakened to Love.
(I had been listening to Gregg Braden’s CDs “Speaking the Lost Language of God” in which he says that we should not pray for something; rather we should pray something, as Native Americans pray rain by experiencing the feeling of rain. Braden also emphasizes that when praying we should “feel the feelings of our hearts, genuine feelings of appreciation, gratitude, compassion, love, and understanding.” As I was thinking about this, I remembered some of the thoughts in my book, Dwell in Love, such as, “Your communion with Me is when you look upon your brothers as divine and allow Me to be in you…allow Me to be who you are…Father, help me to be empty so that You may extend your Love and your blessings to my brothers…allow Me to be you, and there is no Limit to what can be done.” In the middle of the night of the 2010 summer solstice—a time when it seemed heaven kissed earth for me——I got up to change my invalid sister’s diapers, and thoughts came to me of another way to express my experience of how prayer is best done.)

Become so empty of self that you identify with God, and His Light and Love, and allow Him to be what you are, coming to those in need of prayer——joyous prayer——cleansing them and burning the debris in Divine Love. Vacate your being of all sense of personal self and allow the Spirit of God within you to be all that you are. Allow yourself to be God embracing your brothers and sisters; in other words, become God with them, giving them the experience of a Love so total they are aware of nothing else.
Never forget that you are on earth to be a doorway through which My Light and Love can be made known to your fellowman, a doorway through which I can reach forth and touch those you come in contact with. It should be your main concern to keep the doorway open. Seek not to express your earthly consciousness to influence the activities of the world. Just remain serene in openness of mind and with an open heart. Many may come to you asking for various things, but your true gift is your openness and total surrender to Me and My Will. Your dedication to this purpose allows many blessings. Be mindful of this, My child.
When someone close to you has difficult experiences that are necessary to the soul’s development, you will desire to be of assistance, even though you know you cannot prevent what is happening. What you can do, however, is stand by and be supportive by whispering to the soul your acknowledgment of the purity and beauty of the spirit within. By refusing to acknowledge anything but holiness you begin to avert attention away from the self-image of inadequacy and neediness. This assists in healing the mind of the one under stress; that is, it begins the shift from identification with the body, the mind, and the emotions, which has brought about the perception that something needs to be fixed, to identification with Truth. As you do this more and more, you will sense that the current circumstances are only learning tools and are neither permanent nor a threat to existence. And as time goes on, you will yourself be less threatened by such things. You will feel that you are anchored in Me and have nothing to fear, as you go about extending your hand to strengthen and encourage all your brothers and sisters.
Every event or experience is an opportunity to choose Light and Love. Your choice determines what your future experiences will be. You do not know the Father’s Will; therefore, your choice should be that He guide you in the right way and help you to make the best choices. Rather than pray for specific things, pray that the Father’s Will be done. Seek to function as His emissary and allow Him to decide what is done through you. The soul of another can be blessed without the personality getting what it wants. If the Father prompts you to say “No,” ask for blessings for the soul as you speak to the outer person, the personality.
Seek always to be aligned with the Heart of God, but be aware that there are those among you who either do not seek this or whose ways of doing so do not come forth from God but rather the flawed imaginings of the deluded human mind. Be ever discerning and be not duped by those who would seduce you with clever reasonings designed to entrap you. Come ever before the Father in true humility giving heed only to Holiness. Few tread the strait and narrow path, but you will recognize them if you have a pure and clean heart. Ask always of the Father and Me. Ask for Our guidance and you will feel and know what is right.
(One of my closest friends, a highly spiritual lady who has helped many people by praying for them, sent me an email to tell me of the sudden passing of a brother whom she was especially close to. She was very saddened by the news. I first acknowledged the holiness of the Spirit of God in her and asked Christ to, through me and with her permission, lift the burden of sadness from her and turn it over to the Holy Spirit so that it might disappear into the nothingness whence it came. Then I turned to her brother. Oh my, what a joy-filled soul! He just can’t wait to share his joy with anyone who will accept it. He tickled my heart and made me laugh out loud. Afterward, every time I thought of him, I smiled and my heart opened. I was filled with thanksgiving for such a beautiful child of God. Then the following message was given to me for all those who may be in a state of sadness.)
When you open your heart, it is very easy for you to have the experience of joy, but you must truly expect it. If you say, “I am unable to feel joy right now because I’m sad,” then you have closed the door to its happening. Even the loss of a dear one can be the impetus for an experience of incredible joy. Rejoice in the beauty of the life of that one you have lost here on earth. Give thanks in the knowledge that you can commune with My Spirit in him or her at any time——and that in My Presence you stand on holy ground. You can now be closer than ever to that one you cherished so much. This experience will bless you both, and you will realize that human bodies are only temporary dwelling places for the purpose of sharing My Love, My Joy, and My Peace on earth, but My Spirit, which is the very essence of your being, is forever. Always remember that. Do not forget it amid the business of your daily lives. I stand ever there, caressing you with My Love and waiting for you to turn your attention to Me.
Due to the conditions of earth, you may often feel that I have abandoned you, but that is far from true. I hover over you like a mother over a sick child, patiently waiting for and anticipating your arousal from the deep sleep of your soul. When you ask me to, I will guide you and protect your from detrimental forces, even the weaknesses of your own mind and will. If you will release all things unto Me and stop trying to figure out and manipulate events and situations of which you have no understanding, things will open up for you much more smoothly. Interpreting what comes up or comes about in your life is not your job, and you do not have the wisdom to do it. What may seem to your ego consciousness to be unpleasant or even a curse, may well be the blessing that helps lift you up from the darkness that has brought you so much suffering. I am the Spirit that gives you life, and I am ever vigilant. Look to Me for all things.
Be not fainthearted or fearful. Trust in Me and Me alone. I provide all that is needed, when it is needed. I lovingly take care of you. Be not deceived by appearances, the illusions of earth. Dwell in Love and Peace and cast doubt aside. My promises are true. I am with you always.
When you are tempted to ask Me to remove a situation from your life, stop and consider that the situation may well be there so that you recognize a need to pause and pray, to extend love, to embrace someone who is struggling and knows no other way of calling for help than that which has caused you stress. Even a situation that does not involve another person is a reason to turn within and connect with Me. There is a door out of every situation that leads to blessings.
Thoughts are powerful things. Using them to acknowledge Truth is the great opportunity of your lifetime—it is your birthright. And, yes, it is your great mission. You have the power to open hearts simply by recognizing and acknowledging My Spirit there. To have such power and not use it would be very sad indeed! Be ever mindful of your power and the obligation you have to your fellow humans. Anytime you feel sorry for someone, pause and take a step beyond that. Be that child of Mine through whom the Holy Embrace that ensues when you see Me in another’s heart is given. Then you will no longer feel sorry for that one but rather feel your heart open as it overflows with joy at what you behold, joy over what you experience. And you will caress him, or her, in all gentleness, for you will know the great honor you have as you stand there on holy ground—as you stand there in My very Presence. The world is blessed through you as you accept your calling.
When you entered the realm of earth, a great sleep concerning things that were beforehand came upon you. This was necessary so that you might be free from all those things and so that you would have to make decisions anew. This sleep is different from the sleep of the soul concerning its true identity. It is essential to your happiness that you awaken from this state of slumber. In order to do this, you must discipline yourself a little and use your imagination in the most responsible way: Select your greatest idea of holiness, be it the Christ Child or the Resurrected Christ, and, while thinking and believing it is so, imagine that behind any perception that arises. This opens the door for Me to flow across the image and commune with you. Say to My Spirit there, “Come forth and make Your abode here in my heart, and in my mind. Be me, so that I may see you everywhere.”
You often judge events by the world’s standards, but you fail to see the whole picture. What might seem to you to be misfortune or a mishap may well be My way of nudging you to a blessing, or even away from danger. Always reach forth with your heart and connect with Me. Ask Me to guide you through everything that comes up in your life. And forget not to ask that I, though you, bless all those you encounter. Let no opportunity pass by to lovingly touch the heart of another. You cannot know how much depends on that touch.
(A dear friend decided he needed some time away from me after a disagreement we had over a project he was helping me with. I was a little hurt and saddened. I recognized that this was an opportunity for us both.)

You are sent forth into the world to be My vessels of Light and Love. In order to strengthen and purify you, I arrange for you to come in contact with others so that you both, through interaction, may bring to each other’s attention weaknesses that need to be overcome, as well as My Spirit within that needs to be recognized and acknowledged. Use each experience of tension as an opportunity to release personal opinions and perceptions and become ever more anchored in your awareness of My Spirit within. When you do this, occasions of stress will become humorous and appear as a movie with no true reality——just an appearance, an occasion to practice communing and seeing only what truly is.
(A close friend of mine was recently excluded from a group prayer for a friend of hers, apparently because the person being prayed for did not accept the religious and spiritual leanings of my friend. After praying for the one in need, I communed with my friend. Then I felt the Father’s message below coming to me.)
The pure in heart, those who love the Father, need no props, no ritual, no particular place, and no assistance from others in order to approach His Face for a fellow human. Exclusion on the human level has no relevance or consequence. Approach the Father in love, without hindrance, and ask for blessings for anyone you know of who has a perceived need. The Love you bring to the altar knows no barriers and you will feel the Joy of It. Forgive, excuse, forget all attempts by others to exclude you. You are my vessel of blessings to a limited world of sorrow and fear.
(I received news of a health crisis of an elderly lady I once met who, although very sincere, had a rather narrow view of spirituality. I paused to commune with the Spirit of God within her. I immediately went past all the restrictions of the lower self and had a glimpse of pure Light and an experience of pure Love.)
The lower mind is susceptible to all sorts of illusions——fanaticism, suspicion, fears generated by various religious viewpoints, and rationalizations made to justify its own views. Look not upon these, and identify the soul not with these. Look only for purity, holiness——My Spirit within. When you do that, you will feel your heart open and My Love and Joy welling up to embrace that person in acknowledgment of My Spirit that you see, you sense, there. This is your gift to that person and My gift to you.
(I asked God’s blessings on a young couple, both of whom I had heard were presently unemployed. I felt God’s nearness and His Love for them. Afterwards, this beautiful message was given to me.)
Be assured, dear ones, of My Lovingkindness. In adversity I always provide a way, provide for essentials. You may sometimes think I hold you constantly on the brink of disaster or collapse, but consider that there can be great advantage for you in that. If you felt there was no threat to your security, to your perception of well-being, you would be less inclined to seek My Presence or to give thanks for my unfailing care, but when you don’t know from one day to the next how you will be provided for, you seek Me more often, and We both can rejoice in the loving embrace. We enter into it over and over again. Just as there is strength in weakness, there are also blessings in adversity.
Do you not think that all that comes about, no matter what the motive of those on earth is, has a purpose in the overall development and evolution of all who are in the realm of physicality, even in matter itself? Be not distressed by this, but let it be a reminder of, rather than a distraction from, your most important task: acknowledging My Spirit there and participating in the awakening of all who have forgotten who they are. Let every occasion and circumstance be a beckon to you see Me there. When you quietly and with determination look for Me, you will see something that lets you know that I am there.
(I was meditating on the plight of a dear couple, one I carry in my heart. I know of their desire to lead spiritual lives and to know the joy of it, and I know from my own experience the difficulty of recognizing the Presence of God amid the duties of mundane life. I embraced them with Love, then received the message below.)
Sometimes you may feel that you do not have the connection with Me that you would like to have. You may feel alienated. I ask you to offer yourselves, to dedicate your lives, to being vessels through which those in need or in sorrow may feel My Love touch their hearts so that they may have joy——true Joy. When you do this, you will recognize My Love, My Spirit, embracing you, as I, through you, touch others. You KNOW Love——you BECOME Love——by opening your hearts to EXPRESSING Love. And think not that a flower, a visit, or a monetary gift cannot be the means, the door, through which both receiver and giver experience My Love, My Embrace. I stand ever at the door of your heart waiting for you to open it, to invite Me.
The depressed person you see, the weeping person you see, the angry person, the one conniving to defraud you, all have one thing in common: They have My Spirit within them, and they are crying out to you for Love, for recognition of who they really are. You have many jobs to do on earth, but the most important one, the most precious one, is to acknowledge holiness behind every mask of form or personality. It is your fulfillment and your salvation to never miss an opportunity to do that, no, not one, for when you do, you prolong the agony of some soul that may have no idea of its true identity and, thus, feels lost and unappreciated. Those who are lost seek happiness and meaning for their lives in things that always leave them feeling empty. They depend on you, whether or not they know it. Give thanks for My Spirit in them. Give thanks that I have come to you as them so that you may have a joy that surpasses all other joys on earth. In that moment of recognition of Me there, you commune with Me, and that joy you have will be evident in your eyes, in your face, in your voice, for you will be radiant. Keep this holy mission of yours in mind. Never forget it. Your are My Love, and you are here to embrace My Love in every person and each thing you encounter. You rest in My Heart.
(I was extending Love to a beautiful soul who passed on a couple of days ago and whose funeral is to be tomorrow. All through his final illness I felt much Love coming from him, and I still feel it. I received the following message after this experience.)
When you open your heart and allow My Love there to flow to your brothers, you also make it possible to feel My Love coming to you from them. Be not alarmed if it comes through someone who has left the realm of earthly experience. If it is Love that you feel, then I am Its Source. When your heart is open, you may also know Me reaching out to you through nature——the birds, the trees. Actually, you may recognize that you walk in a world of Love. That is part of the comfort I bless you with.
Come before me and ask for My guidance and blessings. Then wait patiently. It may take longer than you expect, but I know the perfect time for you to receive what is needed. One day you may be amazed at what develops and how everything falls into place. You will not go lacking as long as you keep your heart open and your one goal is to be of service to Me and your fellow humans. Rest in Me, feeling content and trusting that I will provide the perfect gift.
You bring healing and protection to beings, whether they be in body or in spirit——even animals——as well as to places, by singing My Name into them. Imagine the Force, the Will Power, and the Love of Jesus Christ in your heart as you sing. When you do this with determination and love, you bring it about. Anytime you are in a place of darkness or feel threatened, by chanting Elohim, you purify it and allow Me, in you, to cleanse it—to reclaim it for Me. I send you forth, whether in body or in spirit, with the force of mind into places and unto people out of balance so that you may assist by enveloping them with the power of My Presence that the singing of My Name into them brings. Sing It within your heart, and, even better, sing It out loud, so that the vibration of holiness is brought there. Sound alters, it changes, even the most vile and corrupt heart or place. Sickness and evil cannot abide My Name, for It is, in and of itself, My Presence. It awakens the most placid soul from its listless slumber, quickening it to Life Eternal. Take responsibility for your own power to help, for if you don’t, you will have said in your heart, “They don’t matter.” Would you ever say that? I ask you: COULD you ever say that?
If there is someone who for some reason is irritated with you and has cut off communication, this is an invitation to you to take a few moments and look beyond the mask of personality and perceptions so that you may have an experience of True Joy in beholding My Purity——a sparkling Light——in the heart of this one. As you stand in awe of the beauty you see there, you may extend the invitation to this brother or sister to join with you in dwelling for a short while in the realm of True Reality and in releasing all judgments and irritation. When you look upon Holiness in the heart of another person, you make it very easy for that one to release all resistance and join with you——you become My instrument of healing in the world, the effect thereof you cannot imagine. Forget not your calling!
Those approaching the door you call death—the transition into a greater awareness of Truth, of My Light and My Love—may do so in a state of serenity and confidence by knowingly resting in My Love, in My Arms. You may support them by embracing My Spirit within them. Thus do you participate in that Joy and Peace that is their experience as they look forward to dwelling more fully in a higher reality without the limitations of the physical, material world. When you do this, you are more keenly aware of My Presence and That of your Master, Jesus. Do not miss this opportunity, for it is your blessing also.
Human problems and difficulties appear as a thin screen in front of pure Light and Love as you focus on My Being in the heart of each brother or sister and allow My Peace to wash over the appearances and obliterate them from your view. Their lack of true reality removes all sorrow and pain as you gaze in awe at My Holiness and experience and know your oneness with Me, My Spirit. Your willingness to do this is a gift to your brothers and sisters, the purest gift there is. Never let one opportunity pass you by, for the value of each one cannot be measured.
You go forth into the world anchored in My Spirit, and you gaze in wonder, sometimes in amusement, as events arrange themselves to open opportunities for you to embrace those you come in contact with. You sometimes sense that there are no chance encounters, and you begin to understand the importance of your presence on earth and of your functioning from the realm of My Spirit in your heart. Then you give thanks that I arrange all things and neglect none. A quiet Peace comes upon you, and it is fitting that this is so.
Send love to those who have passed on, as well as those who are still on the earth. Send love to Me and Jesus Christ. And, yes, send it to the stars and the whole cosmos. Love is the great healer. It is the gift of My Spirit. Open your heart so that My Love flows through and envelops all. Your mission is so easy, and yet so powerful. Let not the illusion of earth deceive you and make you believe that you cannot effect great change. Just open up and allow Me to be you, allow Me to rush past the personality and body, transforming them in the process. My reminders to you are subtle. Learn to recognize them. Be responsible for every thought that you have. I smile upon you. I have great joy in you.
When those who would abuse you keep coming back, do not become impatient, and do not give in to the temptation to strike back. These are souls who need a lot of care: your acknowledgment of, and communion with, My Spirit within them. Abide in My Presence and be as attentive as your Blessed Master was, while at the same time not giving in to schemes and tricks. If you could see the whole situation from above, you would realize that a perfect plan is working itself out, a plan to bring those who have lost their way back into the fold. Those who have accepted My call to service often find themselves in situations they would not have chosen, but when they remain anchored in Me, My Joy and Peace never leave them, and they know that, wherever they are, they stand on Holy Ground, for they stand in My Presence. Rather than be irritated at the situation, give thanks that you may be of service, and listen attentively to my guidanace.
When you stand before the heart of your brother and acknowledge My Presence there, your trust that it is so brings great waves of Love that wash over you. There is no ecstasy that can surpass this experience, and you know without a doubt that this is your true mission on earth. There are no requirements except your trust, your willingness, and the consuming desire within your heart to extend My Love, to embrace all whom you encounter. When you do this, you are My child fulfilling your true calling, My child in whom I am well pleased——one following in the footsteps of My Son Jesus.
Keep in mind that not only are those in pain calling to you to recognize My Presence in them as their true reality but also those who would deceive you and take advantage of your trust. Do not abuse them with unkind thoughts and words when you realize that you have been had. I send them to you for a blessing. When you acknowledge My Spirit in them, you bring about healing in a way and to an extent that nothing else can compare to. I take care of My children who accept the call to offer wholeness. Never fear. Always rejoice in My Love.
The fallen and needy state is not in the spirit but in the mind, but correction comes about when you realize that your true identity is Spirit. I send them to you not only in their physical bodies so that you can commune with My Spirit within them, I also bring them to your attention when they are at a distance——if is a need. I called you forth to go into the byways, slums of life on earth, to bring the needy to Me in your arms and lay them on the altar of Love. I gave you a holy mission. Are you committed with every ounce of your being and not distracted by mere illusions of reality? Forget not what really matters! The world cries out for Love. Be about the business of bringing salvation to all therein in the Name of Christ. When you do this, I will never leave you hanging without all the support you need. You abide ever in My Arms of Love. My Heart yearns for the return of My lost and suffering children. I awaken you in the middle of the night to remind you of this. Is this not all the sign you need of My Love and support?! Be not distracted, for if you are, you allow the suffering to continue. There is no greater love than that of one whose single-minded focus is to participate in the salvation of those who wander in darkness. Be committed to this every hour of the day and the night! Your brothers and sisters depend on you. I depend on you. There is an urgency.
When you pray for those who have troubled relationships, when you remove all that is not in accordance with My Will and ask for My Blessings, they are offered an alternative to their ego-driven perceptions. Deep within they become aware that they really do have a choice——that there really is another way than the path of strife and contention they have chosen. If they do not choose the way of Love and Light, they will know that their choice is deliberate. And they will sense, even if they are not conscious of it, that the choice will not bring Peace and that they have postponed Joy and Salvation. Yet, you must not give up on them but should continue to pray and to acknowledge My Spirit within them so as to encourage them, even entice them.
When your brother identifies with his body, which is maimed by disease, and is depressed and filled with self-loathing, you can be the means of his salvation if you acknowledge only my Pure Spirit as his true identity. You may wonder how that assists him. His salvation comes from My Spirit deep within, not through the personality. When you embrace My Spirit in his inner being, I then present ideas to him from within, and he will more readily accept them than any words you could speak. I know the perfect way to reach him. Trust Me totally. Just acknowledge holiness and offer unconditional Love.
No prayer is ever lost or in vain, no extension of Love is without result. Love fills the vacuum where there was none. It envelops the soul you are communing with and offers blessings, even encourages that soul to accept them. Your offering may save that soul millennia in its development. Never neglect to pause and embrace your brothers and sisters with Love when the opportunity arises. To neglect would be to withhold blessings. An empty vessel has great responsibility and no higher goal than to be My representative on earth.
Often when your life is full of turmoil, its purpose is to bring you to a point of total surrender to Me. Once you have reached a point where you can’t take it anymore, and are ready to make a decision, I may well have a fellow brother or sister speak to your soul to encourage you to release all to Me, asking that My Will be done. It all depends on what is needed to help you do that, what you would respond to. Every person at some point becomes weary of grasping at the gossamer-like enticements of the world for satisfaction as he or she runs from Me. When you finally surrender to me, a great sense of relief comes upon you, and you will desire to serve in any way that I ask you to. Give thanks for the events and situations that lead you back home and for those who love and assist you along the way.
When you accept to be a vessel through which I speak, My Words go forth into creation bringing blessings without end. My Vibration is upon them, and the words find their way into the hearts of those who seek My Presence, even in the most remote parts of your world. But It is not confined to the earth; It touches all of creation. You cannot know the extent of blessing once you open the door and allow My words to flow through. The importance of a decision to be a pure vessel is incomprehensible to you.
When you offer yourselves to be servants of the Most High, when you finally surrender by realizing that this is the best way, actually the only way forward for you and the most helpful way to serve your fellow humans, then you must expect that a cleansing, yes, even purging, of your lower nature is necessary. But my dear children, this is not something to fear. It is a blessing to be welcomed with all your heart! I will surely be by your side every step of the way, supporting and encouraging you in every way that will benefit you, and surely you expect that your blessed Master, Jesus, the Christ, will also be there. Cleansing and purification will lead you to a realization of your holy nature, and that of your brothers and sisters, for you were created out of Myself. You were created to coexist with Me. The fact that you were tempted and succumbed to an illusion of what you are does not change who you really are. It is your destiny to awaken. It is your obligation to yourselves and all those whom you can help. Look upward toward Me, and ask that this process begin now. Release all fear of the loss of who you think you are. The joy that you will know, and the joy you will bring to others, is something you cannot imagine. Come, My children. You have waited much too long, much too long! It is time to enter the joy of true being.
You may wonder how you keep from getting caught up in all the frustration and frantic activity caused by changes and occurrences in your mundane life. The answer is to constantly seek to remain anchored in My Spirit of Peace deep within you. When you do this, you are confident that I take charge of everything and you have nothing to fear. You share this Peace with others by acknowledging My Holiness within them and allowing your heart to open and embrace It. When you keep your anchor in Me, you have no doubts, but await the unfolding of My Plan with joy.
Holiness is behind the mask of manifestation, and It desires to spill over, to break through, the forms that would hide It. It is your desire to know It, and your awareness of It, that allows the breakthrough. When this happens, manifestation is transformed. You play your part in this process by acknowledging the Holiness, by offering total forgiveness, by embracing Truth——true reality, which is Spirit. When the veil is lifted from your eyes, the world is healed. The harvest is plentiful but the workers few. Work tirelessly, that nothing ripe to be harvested is left ungathered.
You sometimes call to Me, and then say, “If You came, I did not know it.” I am Spirit and am far beyond the senses with which you usually perceive things. In order to become aware of My Presence, you must sink down, deep into your consciousness. When you do this, the signals of your senses fade away, and you become conscious of an all-pervading Peace; and if you linger there, you will sense the aliveness of Spirit. You will be comforted and feel safe. As you feel enveloped in this, a quiet joy comes upon you, and you will begin to smile. After you have done this a number of times, you will realize that you can go to this place of Peace in a split second, even when you are not alone or in a quiet place. This, My child, is the gift of My Presence, the response to your call.
I call gently and quietly every day. Only those who listen and want to hear My Voice will hear. I am not intrusive. You must desire Me to know Me. My Love is like a magnet drawing My children to Me. You must be vigilant so that the enticements of the world not distract you. Speak to Me often. It brings Me great Joy when you do that. I am the faithful Lover waiting patiently for you to become weary of the empty charms of the world. The pure heart is cleansing to the world. Ask always, “Father, make me pure so that I may be Your representative on earth.” You ask not in vain. I stand ever by your side.
You may judge whether something is good or bad according to whether or not it brings earthly comfort or pleasure. You do not understand how My Holiness and perfection can be expressed through earthly weakness and imperfection. Making judgments and assumptions is not your role, and you are not qualified to do that. Come, trusting as a child, trusting that I arrange all things for the salvation of My children. Only I know the perfect process, and all events come forth from My Heart of Love. If you can trust Me totally and keep your heart open to express My Love, you are relieved of all your burdens, doubts, and concerns. Then you radiate Peace into the world.
Your job consists of several things. In addition to coaxing forth the Light in individuals, you still need to ask that I, through you, bless the earth. All things must be made holy again, and that includes the physical. Your presence on earth, and your efforts to bring more and more Light into it, assist in divinizing all that exists, even many things you never saw or heard of. You need not see the results of what you are doing, but you do need to trust that I take care of all things and that no positive thought or action you take is without value. Your assignment is to dwell in Love and in Light, and to extend them. Leave the rest to Me. You leave a mark on every thing and every being you touch in reverence and holiness. Yes, they are blessed by it. Keep this always in mind with every opportunity you have.
As you in great love, and with admiration and deep respect, come before your brothers and sisters, and beckon to and coax forth My Spirit within them, you will begin to notice that with the transformation of their being comes a healing from within. You will feel less and less the need to cleanse the outer being because the Holy Light, their true reality which was so long hidden away, does the work. Since darkness is the absence of light, the darkness there disappears when the Light becomes dominant. As you see that Light in each one growing stronger and stronger, you will also notice that darkness on earth begins to give way. Be diligent in working with your brothers and sisters on the deepest level. After all, this is why you are here. This is why you came to earth. Through you and many others I call back home My children who lost their way. Be ever mindful that it is The Great Physician who works through you. It is essential that you offer your whole being to His work.
When you are praying for your brothers and sisters and have, with their permission and to the extent they allow, gently removed all that is not in accordance with My Will, there are several other things that you can do. In addition to caressing them and surrounding them with Light from above, you can also beckon to My Holy Light there, which is the true reality within, coaxing it forth in the Name of Christ to wash over them and begin a transformation of the whole being. This includes the personality and the body, which are a part of their being as long as they remain on earth. The more you do this, the more My Light in them becomes the predominant energy they identify with and express. Caressing and surrounding with Light is more powerful than you can imagine, but beckoning forth the Essential Being transforms them from the very core. I depend on you to assist your brothers and sisters in this way, and they certainly do too. Don’t neglect them. Be mindful of the holiness of your mission.
The never ending radiation of Light and Love from My Heart is ever ready to flood every aspect of your being, cleansing it and making it whole again. It is only waiting for an invitation from you. It order to bring you to the point of making that decision I provide every enticement imaginable to you. Once you do this, you will realize that you are gifted with the ability to caress your brothers and sisters with gentle love and thus entice them to join you—as radiant and sparkling as the most brilliant stars in the night sky. They will join the chorus of My Children, laughing and singing songs, rejoicing in the eternal perfection of the essence of Being. Such joy and beauty await you, My child.
When you rest in the Eternal while you function on earth, you are truly Children of God. This is what you are called to do as emissaries of Truth, of Love, yes, of Reality. Only so can you be of maximum benefit to your fellow-humans. Only so can you be extensions of your Heavenly Father with no limitation. When your consciousness rests in the Eternal, the Father can always depend on you and not have to find another to carry out the tasks of rescuing those who will accept a helping hand. Resting in the Eternal gives you Peace and keeps you attuned so that you recognize when you are being called to a task, be it in the midst of your busy days or in the stillness of the night. Every call is a gift to you, as well as to those you may serve. Keep this ever in mind.
When you come to the end of your earthly life, you will find that many of the things you expended much time and energy on avail you little or nothing for what comes next. If you have spent time connecting with Me and dedicating yourself to establishing an anchor in Eternity, you will look forward to the next episode in your soul’s journey, rather than having fear of it. You will radiate a Peace that others will be in awe of. And all those whom I was able to draw to Me and bless through you will be grateful. Ask that you be helped to not miss a single opportunity to serve as the empty vessel for Me in saving lost souls. The vibration of the earth must be raised, along with the inhabitants thereof.
Eternal Joy is your gift from Me, and with that comes unlimited Love that is indescribable. These are your birthright when you set aside your identification with the false idea of a separate self that a willful and insane split mind tried, although unsuccessfully, to create. When you are willing to set aside your warped ideas of self and reality, and accept what I truly created, you realize who your really are; and your dedication to saving others from their nightmare of creation becomes your sole purpose in life, a dedication of undying Love that cringes at nothing to achieve its objective. No perceived suffering or limitation on the earthly level deters you, and you realize that you are forever My children. Nothing intimidates you from this purpose, and you have the full support of Heaven, of Me and your blessed Master, the Christ. What more could you ask for? What more? You have everything imaginable. Come, My dear children, rally around the task at hand. As Jesus Christ once said, “The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.” Will you join Us in this work that awaits your willingness to participate, the most holy mission you could ever have? I never abandon My creation, and I rely on you to do the part designed just for you. (Quotation from Luke 10:2)
Raising your consciousness above the level of your mundane lives——the physical, emotional and mental levels—and looking straight into the Light of Spirit releases you from all those things that would snag you and hold you back. Once you have given yourselves over to Spirit, you are totally accessible to your Heavenly Father for whatever purposes He has selected for you. You will then have accepted that your main reason for being on earth is to participate in the rescue of lost souls. There is no higher calling for those of you upon the earth at this time. Your life was no accident, and the role you have to play is not irrelevant. Arouse yourselves from the contagious slumber of the world. Awaken to the gravity of the current state of things. I rely upon you and so do the souls you are sent to, although their outer selves are oblivious to it. Most will not simply follow you: You must take them by the hand and lead them, ever so gently. How often have I sent my servants into the world, and they not only were not heeded but were even persecuted. I cannot but persist in trying to save those wandering in darkness. As true sons and daughters of Mine, you will also persist, for it is your very nature to do so. That is the nature of Love, My Love that was placed in your hearts.
When you come before your brothers and sisters and, in admiration, gently reach forth to touch that Spirit of Light deep within the heart, you initiate a quickening, the beginning of an awakening of the soul. Seldom is there a conscious awareness of what you have done, but a change begins to take place, a change that affects the mind and the heart. As you return, over and over again, you notice that the soul seems to look forward to your visits, and you are welcomed with love. You have participated in the beginning of a transformation of another soul, and you have created an unbreakable bond on the soul level, a bond that reflects the oneness of the Spirit within you both.
You can, specifically with intention, come before Me and, after asking to be made pure yourself, first ask that blessings of Light flow down from above through your head into your heart and up from the earth through your feet into your heart. Then ask that this Light flow anonymously from your heart out into the world, cleansing the earth itself and all upon it. It is a matter of your caring and taking the time to do it. If you knew how much on earth remains in a state of lack when you fail to do this, you would surely take responsibility for the gift you possess and the opportunities presented to you, and then do it. Do you really think you came to earth to dillydally around playing with insignificant things? Of course not! You came with a holy mission. You came as an instrument of Grace to help save the world from the unintended nightmare of experimentation with unholy thoughts. Arise! Turn your back on those things and accept to be the anointed servant who is truly his or her “brother’s keeper.” The suffering of the world and the reign of darkness have lasted far too long. Acknowledge and accept that you are part of its salvation. Give thanks that I have chosen you for this holy purpose. I will never fail to support you. (Quotation from Genesis 4:9)
When you approach Me and express your desire to be cleansed and made pure so that you may be a vessel with no hindrances, you make it possible for Me dwell in your heart and bless the world through you. Any personal desires or goals that you have are blockages that prevent Me from manifesting without obstruction as you in the world. In order to be a pure and empty vessel, you must desire nothing else. This is not impossible. It is a matter of how much you love Holiness and wish to be totally aligned with it. Be not dismayed if you are not yet ready for that. Life on earth is a process of becoming a child of God anchored in Divine Light, but you can hasten it if you ask Me for help. Being asleep or lacking desire is not nearly so hard to overcome as actively pursuing darkness and delighting in it. I have infinite patience, but there are times of harvest which, if missed, delay your homecoming for a long time. Ponder your options and the consequences of procrastinating. I look forward to your return unto Me.
The rulers of the nations connive, suppress, and intimidate, but I can certainly set their camps in array to bring about My Will at any time. You need to accept that your prayers for Light and Love on earth have tremendous power, and it is My Will that you participate. You need not concern yourselves with the details of the transformation process. Leave that to me. Your part is helping to anchor Light and Love in the earth. Let your consciousness rise to the level of Divine Light and Love. Then ask that this Divine Energy flow into your being, transforming it, and on through you and out onto the earth and into the earth, blessing all it encounters. Pause from your activities each time you think of this, and do it again, over and over. This is accepting responsibility for your role in coming to earth. It makes a difference when you do it, and it makes a difference when you neglect to do it. Think about it. Ponder it!
If you ever once have an experience of holiness, you will become addicted to it, but you must first truly desire it above all things, and ask for it. Once you do that, I will draw near to you. When you imagine holiness behind every appearance, or form, you hasten the experience. It is much easier for Me to flow across the forms you perceive when you expect to find Me there. Just one experience of My abiding Presence will be sufficient to begin the melting away of all fear and anxiety because you will have a knowing that cannot be doubted, and you will begin to speak to Me in loving terms of endearment. You will then feel that your personality and body are mere vehicles through which I gather My children back to Me. Ask that you be helped to desire this experience of holiness more than anything else, My child. Do it today. There is no reason for delay unless you fear that, if you abandon yourself to Me, you will lose all that you cherish. What you lose will cause the doors to open so that you gain Eternity in its place, and you will never regret it.
Those who surrender all to Me find that they may ever come before My Throne of Light and Glory with petitions for their brothers and sisters, for their choice has made them pure of heart, and, as you have been told, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.” Search your hearts and see what your souls really desire. Make the choice of loving Me “with all your heart, soul, and mind,” then you may be “Children of God.” You cannot purify yourselves, but when you desire Me above all else, I will make you pure, and gently wash away the sense of identity with your consciousness of separation. Although you may be aware of your many shortcomings and impure nature, once you make the decision to surrender all to Me, you will fearlessly approach Me asking for help. Your sincere and contrite heart will be the key that opens the door. (Quotation from Matthew 5:8 and paraphrased quotation from Mark 12:30)
When you come before Me and, in all seriousness, offer yourself to be My servant, your will becomes that of doing My Will in all things. You release a perceived right to decide what you will do or to make your own choices, although there are many thing about which you will be given a choice. While on earth, you are accepting to be the vessel that assists in drawing unto Me all those who have not yet aligned their will with Mine. As My servant, you give up personal aspirations and undue concerns about your wellbeing. The servant needs only ask of Me what is required to exist on the earth and carry out My Will. My coffers are not empty, and I do not take naps; and I will supply every need at the perfect time and in the way that I have determined to be appropriate for you in every situation. Total trust in Me is required of you in order for you to be a perfect servant. Once you have cultivated that trust, you will never doubt Me, no, not ever, for you will know of your relationship with Me. You will give up worry and truly rejoice in all things. I have great joy in you, and your brothers and sisters will come to appreciate you too, for they will sense that you are anchored in the Eternal. Come unto Me! I await your total commitment.
When you offer yourselves to be My vessels, My helpers, in bringing back lost souls, I will provide everything that you need in order to accomplish that purpose. If you think you are forgotten or neglected, it is because you do not understand what is really happening and the course of events I that have chosen. It is important that you cultivate trust in Me and, once you have surrendered yourself totally to Me, that you leave everything to Me. You have concerns enough with being vigilant of your minds and being ever mindful of your purpose. You have no need to figure out the processes underway. I smile on every heart that has set itself totally at disposal, offered itself with no conditions.
When you dwell in the realms of Light, you make yourself available to be a conduit through which more Light is anchored into the earth, and this anchoring of Light begins a transformation of the world. Darkness disappears where there is Light. Instead of entertaining yourself by reading or watching TV while you are waiting to be served somewhere, just close your eyes and concentrate upon Light streaming into the top of your head and radiating out from you in all directions, including into the earth below you, and blessing everyone and everything. This will also begin the process of purifying you as a channel of blessings from the realm of Spirit, and it will prevent the unintended consequences of idle mind-wandering. You are not here to just idle away time but rather to participate in the harvest, the gathering back home of those who got lost in a fantasy of nothingness. You were not chosen for this assignment randomly but specifically and intentionally because you are capable of doing it and because the situation is dire. Not only do I depend upon you, but so do all those who wander aimlessly about with no sense of purpose.
Violent acts by extremist groups cause you to wonder about consequences, that is, what the violent acts are a consequence of. You sense that something is lacking in your world that brings these acts about. Getting lost in an ideology that tells you all you need to do is accept all, respect all, and radiate love and harmony will not curb or stop the violence because it is an expression of hate and ignorance. The part you play in this scenario is one of bringing about a transformation of the negativity by so focusing on the Light of Pure Being that it literally melts away the projected images of hate and misjudgments. It is your mission to dwell in the realms of Light and Love while still functioning on earth and to acknowledge only holiness behind every perceived unholy act or person. This mission is neither easy nor impossible. It requires that you be vigilant of your thoughts and judgments and change every unholy perception to a holy one by looking through it to the purity of Spirit behind it. Much depends on your willingness to take responsibility and do this.
Oh, how blessed are those who crave and aspire to the holiness of My Face, for they shall become My servants and represent Me on earth. I shall dwell in them, and they shall be beacons of Light that attract unto them their brothers and sisters who cry out for help and grasp at any glimpse of Light and hope they may perceive. Every child of Mine who seeks to come before My Presence, carrying the broken and suffering souls of earth in their arms, shall surely know what it means for Me to “Lift up My Countenance upon them,” for I protect and prepare the way before them. (Paraphrased quotation from Numbers 6: 26)
I may bring to your attention brothers and sisters who are suffering from physical, emotional, or mental pain and anguish, but there are also those who appear to be well, happy, and successful that are in danger of being tempted to do things not beneficial to their spiritual welfare. As you are watching the world go by and I bring someone to your attention, do not question the need of your prayers and embraces simply because you do not see a reason for these from an earthly viewpoint. I bring people to mind for a reason. Extending Love and acknowledging My Holiness within is your job, your function——yes, your opportunity to give and receive blessings from Me.
The future of your world is greatly influenced by your prayers. Complacency on your part delays the coming of My Kingdom on earth. Keep this in mind and do not neglect. Your presence on earth is not an accident, and your participation in the harvest should be your main concern. Do not let the cares and enticements of the world lure you away. You were not casually chosen. Seek to know My Presence, to have My nearness, often. I will never forsake you.
It is from the realm of holiness that you receive guidance from Me. Only there have you laid aside your judgments, your biases, your opinions so that you are totally open. When you align yourself with holiness you are able to hear My Voice and receive ideas from Me. It is also from this realm that you allow Me to lead you about in the world so that you come in contact with those whom I wish, through you, to touch. You are a perfect vessel when you dwell in holiness.
You seek Me. You cry unto Me. You wonder where I am. Yet I am always there. But you must seek Me with your soul. I am Spirit, and you will not see Me with your physical eyes. I am the still, small voice that you intuitively hear when you turn away from the loud voices of the earthly world of the senses. Nevertheless, you will often find that I give you confirmation of my Presence on the physical level. I may send someone who offers you a very sweet and unexpected gesture of kindness and appreciation that makes you wonder, and then you will suspect that it came from Me. Actually, you will know that it is a message from Me to comfort you and reassure you of My abiding Presence. Never doubt it. I have many ways of making My Presence and never-ending concern for you known. I caress you and accept every effort you make to draw closer to Me. I smile upon you. That is the meaning of, “The Lord bless thee and keep thee: The make His Face to shine upon thee and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up His Countenance upon thee, and give thee Peace.” (Quotation from Numbers 6:24-46)
There are always ups and downs in your lives, and at times you may become depressed, even have suicidal thoughts. When that happens, call to Me, whisper to Me, and I will come to you. Your lives on earth are not meant to be all rosy, but rather you are supposed to have challenges so that you turn to Me, yes, habitually turn to Me. I will carry you through if you trust Me and allow Me to. It is imperative that you become so anchored in Me that nothing can throw you off rails. When you trust Me, you will sense, actually know, that all is under control, and there is a divine purpose for everything that occurs. I look forward to every call from you, for I wish to have you return to My Heart permanently.
Faith, trust in Me, is something that has to be cultivated. Faith on an intellectual level is often based on belief after careful study of what makes sense to you. However, you will only have complete trust in Me, that is, trust with no doubts of any kind, after you have an experience of My Presence; otherwise, it is only based on hope. The easiest way to have an experience of My Presence is to seek to discover My Holiness in another brother or sister, just beyond the mask of body and personality. I tell you this over and over. Please do set aside time every day to sit quietly and practice seeking Me in other people. This is your salvation from the world of appearances that has seduced you.
When you withdraw from worldly concerns, it is as if you have removed a coat you have been wearing, a coat that has been covering your inner sanctuary. Then you become absorbed in the holiness of My Spirit and realize that this is your true home. The stillness, the tranquility, the Peace, that you know, that you experience, radiates from you and blesses all you pray for, all you embrace and caress. Every true blessing and appropriate change comes to all you pray for from that sacred place within them that you have touched. This is a holy process in the realm of spirit that few will be aware of. Thus is the world blessed by those who offer to be my vessels, those who ask to be cleansed and purified. I bless you all.
If you do not spend some time each day releasing your earthly thoughts and concerns and dwelling in that sacred place of holiness deep within, you will lose your anchor, your sense of resting in My Arms. Then you will become fearful and frustrated, angry and depressed. As those around you scream and rage and perform their ungodly deeds, you must remain serene and confident, allowing My Peace to radiate from you as healing balm into the world. Never think lightly of your role, your function, your assignment, nor of its effectiveness.
Allow your brothers to choose, but support them in the process by accentuating the choice of Love and Light by your acknowledging only My Spirit within. That is true assistance. My vessels throughout the world form a network of Light and Love that makes it easier for all brothers to reach out and ask for help. It encourages them to desire to align themselves with holiness and to participate in the harvest at hand. Be ever mindful of the opportunities I place before you each day, and give thanks for each one.
Have you ever noticed that you sometimes give undue attention to certain things that are having no effect on your connection with Me? Being careful to abide by prescribed rules and take part in particular acts of worship, for example, may be attempts of the mind to be, or appear to be, spiritual, but in reality are a preoccupation with things that have not yet become consequential to you—perhaps as an unconscious way of avoiding taking serious steps to identify with My Spirit deep within. Once you dwell in Me, you can dispense with the exacting rules of religiosity, for I will direct every aspect of your lives. Abiding by rules of conduct does not make you spiritual; however, once you begin to see Me in everything that you encounter every day, a spiritual basis for your lives establishes itself, no matter what you are doing. Then everything becomes a blessing, both for you and those you interact with. And rituals and sacraments become what they were meant to be: not just symbols but reminders to look beyond them to My all-pervading Spirit, reminders see Me everywhere and to commune with Me in all things and all people.
Do you really take My messages to heart, or do you read, analyze, and evaluate them—perhaps even judge them to be good—and not diligently seek to apply them to the individual moments and situations of your life? To be sure, the circumstances of your life are so up-front and scream so loudly as to cause you to, at least temporarily, forget Me and what I impart to you, but whenever there is a lull in activity, it is essential that you reflect upon the events and how My messages can be applied to them. It is commendable that you read the messages, but unless you go a step further, you will continue to spin your wheels in the quagmire of a false identity. Just ask Me for help, and you will see how, in the midst of a flurry of activity, I will remind you to look deeper. I am the one thing in your undependable world that you can rely on. You must take responsibility for your lives. I offer help, but I do not force it upon you. If you do not ask and desire it, you will not treasure it and benefit from it.
Throughout the ages I watch as my children run to and fro trying to achieve an unachievable goal, a goal that would establish them as special, and as more worthy of happiness than others. Most seem incapable of learning from the past that this never works, even incapable of learning from their own personal experiences. I send My messengers to help guide them back to Me, but few listen to them. Many are so addicted to the pleasures and temptations of the ego that the only thing that will make them turn and ask for help is to reach a point where pain is no longer bearable. Thus, catastrophic conditions are what they attract to themselves. During these times, I stand, as always, there to welcome them home. Yes, I will wipe away their tears, but they must let go of the toys that have cut off their view of Me, deprived them of Love, and, by all appearances, strangled every hope. In the place of that shadow, that mask, that lure of false joy, they will receive true joy, My Joy. The process is actually quite easy, but they must have the will to proceed and not waiver, and that is what seems to be so difficult for many. I will gently lead them, but they must desire to follow. That is My Eternal Love and Grace expressed unceasingly and in all tenderness. “Come, come unto Me and I will give you rest,” rest such as you have never known. (Paraphrased quotation from Mathew 11:28)
Will I not be “a lamp unto your feet, and a light unto your path?” In order for that to become a reality to you, you must desire it and ask for it. You must desire it “with all your heart, mind, and soul.” If you realize that you do not desire it that much, you need only ask that I help you, and I will surely do it. Even a mere flicker of desire is a sign that you may be rousing from the deep sleep of your soul. It is reason for hope, because that flickering flame can be fanned into a blazing, totally-transforming fire that sweeps you into very My Arms. And be not dismayed at the ensuing process, for your perception of situations and circumstances is only an interpretation based upon a false reality. Look not upon challenges and difficulties as punishment from Me but rather as blessings that will steer you in the right direction and nudge you to make the right choices. Every pain is a blessing from My Love, a blessing carefully crafted by Me, specifically with your homecoming in mind. (Paraphrased quotations from Psalm 119:105 and Mark 12:30)
The cycles of history are but the ongoing process of leading humans to the realization that the attempt to leave their eternal home and create an alternate reality was nothing more than an idle dream, one that could never become real. The attempt to create a reality outside of My perfect creation only resulted in an imperfect perception that soon lost its appeal and ability to convince. Deep within, you sense that the purity and holiness of true reality is where you belong, and you crave it. Your disappointment with the falsehood of the world you see around you causes you to be depressed and sad, and you often react with rejection and condemnation, even violence. The more you experience the events of the cycles of history, the more you will be inclined to seek, and be able to accept, the return of your mind and heart to Me. I have patience with the process and always look upon you with tender Love, arranging events and situations that will bring you to the point of desiring Truth. You will eventually release the false images you now cling to and walk straight into My Heart. What a joyous experience that will be!
It must surely appear to you that the forces of darkness are launching a relentless attack on you, an attack from which you never get relief, but the vision of holiness parts the veil and gives you a glimpse of true reality. When you turn back from looking on the false images presented to you by the world of perception, and gaze directly into the Light whence you came, where you actually eternally reside, the sense of relief that you then experience will give you rest, yes, peace, and a knowing that this is where you belong. You will then trust Me completely, and all fear and apprehensiveness will disappear. You will recognize your role in bringing comfort and understanding to others as you commune with My Spirit in them, even those who appear to be attacking you. When you truly commune with Me in them, they will begin to take heart as they feel loved, and they will also begin to see that their aggressiveness was unnecessary. It was only a misdirected way of calling out for help. How great is your calling, your mission on earth! What a difference you can make! Oh, do not take it lightly, I implore you!
With every encounter of every day, you have the opportunity to see and acknowledge Me, to recognize that you stand on holy ground when you are in the presence of another brother or sister. You can choose whether to see holiness and be blessed by it; or you can choose to see a mask, whose purpose is to hide Me, and then either be burdened with the lure of a false reality that you may like, or experience the negativity that rejection of something you dislike brings. What you feel and experience is within your power because the choice is yours. Not making a choice often results in a default to your vacillating responses to various masks. You can be freed from hopelessness and fear by making the choice for what is true, for what is pure and holy. I keep urging you to shake loose the vestiges of a bad choice made a long time ago. All you need to do is reach out to Me and be one-minded in your pursuit of choosing to see holiness. When you do this, you will notice, after a while, that when you identify another person as the holiness of My Spirit within, you are shifting your own identity to that of My Spirit within you. It is then that hopelessness and fear begin to fade and disappear, for in Truth they have no reality.
You may think that you trust Me——until the magic of human ingenuity has failed to give you the relief you seek and you realize that you have nowhere else to turn but to Me, even though you may have doubts. Often it is not until then that you will seek My help with all your heart. Keep in mind that the solutions you desire to your perceived problems may not be what is best for you, for it may be that the very situation you wish to have removed may be exactly what is needed to bring you forward on your journey back to Me out of the maze of mental constructs, the illusions, in which you are lost. Ask of Me and trust that I see the total picture and know the perfect way to release you from the bondage of your wayward detour into an imperfect way of creating that holds you so firmly in its grip. I see a way, the perfect way, where you see only impossibilities. I will never fail to lead you through the dangers of nothingness. You have nothing to fear if you keep your eyes on Me and glance neither to the right nor to the left. Give up trying to figure it out on your own, for you are incapable of doing that. I hold you in My Arms, and only your fear and your doubts can make you feel threatened.
The perfect way out of your dilemma was planned from the beginning of your decision to try to create something apart from Me, but you were not interested as long as the novelty of what you had made fascinated you. Then when the pain set in, you began to look for help. At first you wanted relief from the discomfort while you continued to cling to your illusions of reality. It took a while for you to begin to accept that it doesn’t work that way. Your progress will be limited as long as you look toward the Light while looking back with nostalgia at the travesty of creation that you made. Total release and dedication are required. You must first begin to delight in the mere idea of Holiness, and then, once you experience it, you will delight in the actual reality of it. It is all around you and in you, but in order to know this, you must desire it. I wait patiently for you to come to the point of decision. It can’t be rushed; otherwise, it wouldn’t be genuine. Lift up your hands and hearts and walk forwards without regrets.
I call repeatedly. I never stop calling. It is because of my undying Love for My children that I never stop calling. Do you not understand? I am ever there with you, and I feel it when you suffer, whether you call out or not. No one desires the end of your nightmare more than I. I call to you, I serenade you, I whisper to you. Your Father’s Love could not do otherwise. It is your salvation. Oh, do turn aside from your fascination with fantasy, and turn back towards Me, prodigal sons and daughters. Do you not realize that your Father’s suffering is greater than yours, and no matter what the transgression is, it is Love that awaits your return? All will then be forgotten, for the illusion is nothing but a mirage.
I have prepared you for the task that lies before you. You have everything that you need. All awaits your willingness, your dedication, your desire to be My servant and to truly be a brother or sister to your fellow humans. Each child is precious to Me, and it is fitting that every one be precious to you. May there be no limit to what you are willing to do, and let the beauty of My Spirit in each one be the Light that draws you to them. Remember, you can never feel complete as long as one is left behind.
Asking to be made pure, asking to be of service to your fellow humans, saying, “Here am I, Lord, send me,” is removing all obstacles to My Will in your life. It is placing yourself totally within My Will and accepting to go anywhere, do anything, and be all things that I desire. It is taking on your part in the big puzzle of unfolding events. The dedicated and willing heart is what you offer. All the rest is taken care of by Me. Sometimes the events may take place faster than you can apprehend, and at other times you may need to wait so long that you think I have forgotten you. Those who resist will encounter difficulties, sometimes unimaginable hindrances, in their lives. Those resting in Me will find that things in their lives fit together in ways that only a mastermind could have planned. I ask everything of you, and the purification process will leave you free as you have never been before. This is a time of harvest, and the possibilities are beyond your comprehension. Seek My Face, and you will be blessed in the most exalted way. I await your petition.
Consider that your whole life is a prayer of one sort or another. Your thoughts reflect your deepest desires and, in addition, your relationship not only with Me but also with your fellow humans. Take notice of your thoughts. Be vigilant. Be not dismayed when you recognize what they reveal, but rather ask of Me that you be helped to turn them in the direction of Light. Of course something more is also required of you. You may not be able to control your thoughts, but when you recognize where they dwell, you can then consciously turn them in the direction of holiness and purity. And do not belittle the idea of holy imagination, which means imagining your brothers and sisters standing before you and the mask of body and personality becoming so thin and transparent that you see My Light behind them shining through, causing all else to melt away into nothingness in that moment. When you do this, you are anchoring yourself in Reality, in Me, and that begins the transformation of your mind. The situations and circumstances that your thoughts draw to you will change, and you will smile and be thankful for the beauty of them, as well as the opportunities they bring for you to be a vessel of Mine, through which I bless the world. When you smile from the heart, you open the door for Me to make My Abode there, and My Spirit in you will cause you to be radiant.
When My servants, those who choose to serve their brothers and sisters, are more concerned about their fellow humans who wander listlessly upon the earth than about themselves, they have reached a point where they, by their very dedication, can effect change——real and meaningful change. In My Plan, such servants are absolutely essential, for you only return to Me leaning on each other. There is no salvation separate or apart from others because such specialness does not exist in Me. Is my Spirit not as pure and holy in the most vile person as in the most righteous? The fallen and needy state of humanity is not of the Spirit but in the mind, where the choice to attempt being separate from Me arose. You cannot conceive of the blessings you yourselves reap from thinking first about how you can serve others, rather than about how you can serve yourselves. Just offer yourselves to Me and do not interfere in the process that ensues. My Wisdom is perfect.
When you express your desire to become totally aligned with My Will, and to be made pure, and when you say, “Here am I, Lord, send me,” that is when you begin to take on your role as caretaker and helper of your brothers and sisters who may be stumbling, or just oblivious to the deeper meaning of life on earth. Taking this big step makes it possible for Me to arrange events and situations that hasten your development and preparation. The souls of your brothers and sisters are crying out for help, even though their conscious minds may be unaware of it. Those who volunteer for such service are certainly taken care of by Me. There is no weakness, lack, or flaw in you that I will not use in strength and perfection to bring about My Will. And you, as well as your brothers and sisters, will be brought forwards by leaps and bounds. The consciousness of the world is suspended as if in a daze. It is ripe for a healing touch, and you can help make this possible by becoming My empty vessel. You don’t need talents or strategies. You just need to present yourself as a willing servant with no stipulations. I smile upon you when you do this, and I take you under My Wing of protection. Look about you; “The fields are white unto the harvest.” Will you be a laborer in fields with such potential for blessings? (Paraphrased quotations from Isaiah 6:8 and John 4:35)
You may wonder why you must endure so many difficulties in life. Lessons learned under challenging circumstances are lessons you won’t easily forget, but also, you must come to understand that the choice to be separate from Me has consequences: consequences of pain, of feeling lost and abandoned, and of feeling separate from Divine Love. If there were no discomfort, you would be lulled into a state of sleep with no desire or impetus to awaken to Life and Love. The perfection of My Plan to bring you back to a conscious knowing that you abide in Me consists not only of stimulating your desire to return to that knowing, but also drawing you back: you along with your brothers and sisters that you bring along with you. When you come before Me and intercede for them, it parts the clouds of ignorance, pain, and doubt, and it removes obstacles for both you and them. I am not deceived in My plan, for it is perfect. You will often ask for others when you would not ask for yourself. The compassion you have for them comes from that Spirit of Mine in your heart. Consider any inconvenience or unpleasantness you may have to be nothing. As My Love within you transforms your whole being, you will focus only on the joy of the redeeming process and the inevitable outcome. Give thanks for all things, because of the opportunities that come with them. Each situation is lovingly crafted by Me with maximum blessings in mind.
If you ever feel overpowered by the presence of someone and feel a need to put up barriers, just step back and become conscious that you are held in My Embrace. As you do that, and feel your heart open up, rather than close down, you will intuitively know that you are protected by Me, and nothing that is not in harmony with My Will for you will happen. Being anchored in Me assures that. That which is My Will has a holy purpose, no matter how it may seem at the moment. If you are constant in your trust of Me, you will see the blessings that result from not wavering. You may even see lives change in ways that otherwise could not have happened. This is your role, and you are capable of such trust if you put your heart into it, if you accept that your brothers and sisters are worth your putting forth the effort. I beckon to you from the heart of every overpowering and demanding person you meet. Desire and ask that you not fail to recognize Me, so that you both may be blessed.
Eternity is My abode, and it is beyond any realm you could ever conceive of. It is your everlasting home, should you choose to abide there. I await your choice to dwell there with Me, to be there forever. Once you choose that and ask for help to make it be so, the process is set in motion to assist you in every way imaginable. Bear in mind that the process involves your desiring to help your brothers and sisters in any way that may be needed—any possible way! Some might consider this sacrifice, but once you make the choice, you will realize that is it not sacrifice at all but rather love and compassion, for you will then know without a doubt that you are at one with all of My children, and you could not leave a single one behind. Many would think this involves hardship, even suffering, yes, uncalled for suffering as you encounter confrontation from the forces of darkness, but these are not concepts that will have any meaning to you. Once you dwell in Me, and I in you, the healing of the world becomes your top priority. Nothing is then a cost but rather an opportunity. What for others is sacrifice and suffering becomes for you expression of Divine Love. You are then My Son or My Daughter, My Being, on earth. Come, dear child, make the choice that gives you a true sense of purpose and fulfillment, one that lets you be who you really are. That choice opens the door for Me to enter and transform your life, bringing everlasting Joy and Peace as you know yourself resting in My Heart and bringing your brothers and sisters with you.
If someone, upon taking leave of you, says to you, “Pray for me,” don’t take it as another way of saying, “Goodbye.” Take it very seriously as the inner being of that person asking you to commune with him or her, and don’t forget it. This will be a two-way blessing. The blessing you receive will be no less than that you offer. A recognition of holiness wipes away mountains of feelings of neglect, loneliness, and hopelessness. It revives the soul as nothing else you could ever do——because it begins the reestablishment of a relationship with your Heavenly Father that has long been neglected. The joy it brings to you will change your life forever, even if you postpone it. But don’t delay——for the sake of that one who asked you for prayer, as well as for yourself.
Be comforted when the world around you seems under the spell of forces not aligned with Me and intent on pulling everyone along with it. You can be the ray of hope that changes the course of lives and events. You do that by offering yourself as an empty vessel and continuing to pray that your brothers and sisters will turn within and seek My Presence. There is no situation that is totally hopeless. The Love and Light that you offer the world brings healing to it. I depend on you to do your part.
What I ask of you is emptiness so that I can go forth into the world as you, as well as your acknowledgment of My Spirit in your brothers. It is so simple and so easy! You need no training for this, only willingness at all times to serve and to set aside all other desires. You cannot doubt that you are serving when you feel My embrace.
When someone is really irritating you, whether by slight, by being demanding, or by being inconsiderate, it is an experience brought to you to joggle your memory of My Spirit in that person, as well as in you. If you allow the situation to cause you to indulge in negative feelings, you have missed an opportunity to commune with Me. The call to Love that the situation brought to you was an offering of a blessing. As soon as you recognize this, do not tarry in resentment or indulge in pointing out faults of the other, but let your guard down, the barrier you have erected between you and that person, and let My Spirit in him or her bless you to the fullest. There was a call for Love, and I placed you there to answer it with Love. Do not mistake the honor and opportunity for something less than that. I rely on you. Do not disappoint Me. Do not leave that brother or sister feeling empty, looking about for comfort and hope, and finding no one willing to help. It is so easy to provide true solace. It flows from your heart to that of the other: a joining in Love, in communion.
Be not dismayed when you take stock of your lives—your past actions, thoughts, and attitudes. It is your intent in this moment, the direction of your gaze, your heart’s desire, that matters. As you turn from the past and desire communion with Me, I see you without the past that would haunt you. I see you in the reality of eternity where you were created. In your recognition of that oneness that always was, you release all concepts and perceptions of anything else. This experience of oneness begins the healing of your mind and soul, for in experiencing it, the lack of reality in separation becomes knowledge, knowledge that cannot be taken from you. I stand always at the door of your heart. I’m ever there.
Sometimes those who suffer are serving as an example of how those who have placed their trust in the Eternal rather than in earthly things respond to adversity. On other occasions they may be learning through suffering to place their trust in Me rather than the body, with which they are currently identifying themselves. Your extension of Love is never lost. It brings much comfort on some level and helps the suffering ones to more easily reach out to Me. Do not neglect this duty. It is an honor.
Not to pray for your country and its leaders is to allow things to continue on an unguided path at a momentum set in motion by forces seeking a limited goal. You must pray in a spirit of Light and Love——seeking your Father’s Will only——in order to break the cycle and set in motion a new one that is dedicated to holiness. You must set aside personal goals and desires anchored in ignorance and uninformed opinions. Seek only to be your Father’s vessel, aligned with Him and resting in His Heart.
When you accept to ask for an embrace from My Spirit within a brother, you have in that moment released all judgments. The Love you feel enveloping you is your own blessing and a sign to you that the door to your heart is wide open. You will release your brother into My care and release your concerns about him. My Peace will come upon you, and My Joy will be yours. It will remind you of Mary pondering the shepherds’ story of angels singing praises to God at the birth of Jesus.
The masses are held in the clutches of darkness because they are captivated by the lure of violence, wealth, and sexuality. In ancient times the same scenario resulted in the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities of the Hebrew people. Those who turn away from the emptiness of these temptations are ready to begin an ascent into the realms of Light. Concern for others and extending a helping hand to them accelerate the ascent. Light bearers, by their very presence on earth, help provide an alternative to those who are just beginning to be disillusioned by the deceptive images of the realm of darkness. Once you’ve turned to the Light, never look back towards the world you are leaving. Looking back makes it easier to be caught in the destructive web of illusion again, and it won’t be so easy to extricate yourself from it. If that happens, you may need the help of someone who has traveled further away from the deceptive world that held you in its grips for so long. There will be many things to shed, to release, but you don’t have to do it all alone. You just need to desire it, ask for it, and be willing to allow the process to develop in the perfect way I have determined for you. I am ever there for you. Never doubt it.
The slumber of forgetfulness has such a hold on the world that most people are totally oblivious to it. Some, however, have begun to wonder whether there might be, yea, must be, another reality, or a way to something else. Still others have begun to seek that reality. Darkness exerts a strong power to inhibit the awakening to Truth, but the power of Truth to help those who are ready to wake up is stronger and is able to open up a pathway to realization of Its reality. What you bring to the altar is your desire for Truth and your intention to awaken to it. Once you do that, you will be met more than half way by Me. Be not dismayed when the response you get is not what you expected or maybe hoped for. My Wisdom provides what is perfect for you at the time.

There are patterns in the events of history that tend to repeat themselves. Your faith is tried by being in the midst of these events, and you are strengthened by your response to what happens to you and in the world around you. You should never give up or give in to these circumstances and just say, “Oh, what’s the use? I can’t do anything about it.” There is much that you can do about it! These events are continued opportunities for you to have an effect on not only the opening up of your awareness of the connection you have with Me, but also the ever ongoing development of the earth. Repeatedly, My children are given these opportunities to choose again and again until the right choice is made, namely, the conscious and intentional choice to turn back towards Me and to dwell in Me—in full awareness. You hear news of insane acts of violence and lovelessness and ask, “What is the world coming to?” What you see and hear about is the result of the choice to try to create a world of separateness from Me, a world devoid of Holiness and Divine Love. You, my precious child, are a major part of the answer to the healing of this sick and insane world you live in. Do you not realize that this is the reason for your life, this is the meaning of your presence here, this is what you should be focusing your attention on? You do this by asking: “Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me,” by asking Me to cleanse and heal your own mind and to make you pure. Do understand that making the choice to ask these blessings of Me will have an enormous effect on your life—without a doubt! Pause and be aware of My Presence, My Lovingkindness. (Quotation from Psalm 51:10)
There are laws of cause and effect that are in force on earth. These you, of yourself, cannot circumvent. Not only each thought and each act sets in force an effect, but apathy and avoidance of choice also have results. However, My precious child, there is something called grace. My Grace elevates your life to a level where the laws of the natural world are rendered of no effect. In order to bring about the entry of My Grace into your life, you must turn away from the darkness of your perceived separation from Me that, at least initially, seemed so attractive to you. You must turn back towards the Light, towards Me. Turn your gaze away from the tempting mirage of nothingness that entices you; turn it back, with an intense desire, to the knowledge that you abide in Me. When you, in all earnestness, desire this, desire to enter into an embrace of the Holiness of My Being, you open the door for My Grace to convert the laws of the earthly level into laws that make them of no effect, for they are laws of nothingness. The Light of My Being causes darkness to disappear. Dear child, My Love, the Love of My Heart, it is My desire that you make the crucial decision to walk away from the catastrophic fantasy that irresponsible use of freewill led you to conjure up in your mind. I stand with open Arms ready to welcome you back into communion with Me, ready to set My Grace into effect. The decision is yours to make. Freewill requires that it be so—just as freewill allowed you to stray from the perfect laws of creation that I established in order to keep you in the ways of holiness. It is My Joy to come to you in the midnight hour to extend a helping hand to lift you from your lost state that has caused you so much suffering.
Forget not that the way events in the world unfold is determined in part by you. You are on earth at this time to be constantly in communion with me, to pray without ceasing, so that you do your part in elevating the vibration of the earth. This is a great responsibility, one to be taken seriously. In so doing you not only affect events around you, you also affect each person you encounter. Much depends on you to bring about the awakening of slumbering souls and those who are enticed by and thoughtlessly flirt with darkness. Keep in mind that this is a time of harvest. There are many who are teetering and can fall in either direction. If you nonchalantly drift through life and never consider that every thought you have has an effect on the world, you will not realize of how much assistance you could be to those aimlessly tripping along on the tightropes of their lives. Oh, do not let them down! Do not let yourself down! In great Love I implore you.
The message I last gave you was not just interesting ideas I gave you about which you say, “Oh, that’s nice. So what’s next?” Read it again and contemplate what was said. Seek to realize the meaning and apply it to your life. You definitely can become aware of My Presence, and you can without a doubt dwell in It! Dwelling in Me brings serenity that blesses the world around you. Take not the unique opportunity you have in being on earth at this time lightly. If you really knew and understood the responsibility you have and the effect of missed opportunities, you would in all seriousness say, “Oh, my blessed Father, awaken me to my mission, my purpose in life! Remind me every day, all through the day, to seek your Presence and to seek it not just for myself but to seek it in my brothers and sisters so that they, as well as I, may be blessed.” This is a time of harvest! Much depends on you! You were not allowed to be on earth just to play but also to touch the lives of your brothers and sisters and effect change in them, as well as in yourself. When you play, play in Me! When you are joyous, be joyous in Me! Be My empty vessels! Play your role in saving the world from its disastrous and irresponsible detour into a willful idea of separation from Me that has brought about untold and unneeded suffering. Awaken to the reality of Spirit! My coming to you in the middle of the night to remind you isn’t a game. The time to put away childish things and take on your responsibility as a child of God is now—not tomorrow but today.
When you constantly dwell in Me, when you consciously know you are resting in Me, you will also know that nothing happens to you that does not have a holy purpose. Then let not events or even illnesses disturb you or cause you to have fear. These things not only draw you even closer to Me, they allow Me to touch and bless others in ways that otherwise would not happen. Remember, touching your brothers and sisters and effecting change in them is part of the reason you are here. And constantly resting in Me causes your heart to remain open——wide open. You will feel it, even in the heart area of your physical body. Release the constant chatter of your mind so that this can be. An open heart does not know stress and fear. The serenity you experience will bring serenity to those around you. The open heart is in communion with Me, and you are in contact with Me wherever you are and whatever happens to you. The open heart also feels itself surrounded with My Love, and you will be constantly talking to Me, yes, constantly saying, “I love You, Blessed Father; I adore You; I thank You that I can know Your abiding Presence and trust that You are constantly aware of my every need and will always provide for me. I ask that you bring about events and situations that keep me in a state of thanksgiving, events that constantly cause me to reach out to you.” I never cease speaking to your heart and caressing you. You are irresistible to Me, and I want to be irresistible to you.
When difficulties arise in your life, speak to your Heavenly Father and say, “Blessed Father, grant that this situation will serve a holy purpose, bringing about the result that You ordained for it from the beginning. Help me to be accepting of Your Will in all things, and help me to always desire to serve my fellowman in whatever way is beneficial to them, even when the situations are unpleasant to me.” Of course, you think that it would be easier for you if you knew the reasons behind what is happening, but you must learn to trust Me totally after you have offered up such a prayer. I will not abandon you.
If you could be convinced that a great fear of a big nothing is what is blocking your joy in being, you would be well on your way to abiding in peace, My Peace, the reality of Eternal Love. Since it is your mind that holds you back, I approach you with ideas and concepts. If you would, or could, release those thoughts of yours, you would stand in naked innocence before Me. Do consider that what is hindering you is the part of your mind that split away from the part that forever dwells in Me. It is not some difficult task that is required of you but rather a releasing of an outlook that you tenaciously cling to. Stop looking for a way of doing something and just let Truth dawn upon you. You will then understand that that which appeared to be a formidable task is just a matter of releasing an illusion conceived in the mind. Stop thinking so much and focus on whatever idea of Holiness, Purity, and non-threatening Being that you can conceive of. Just let go and be what you always have been and always will be. I trust that you will at some point do this—I have no doubts—and I stand ever ready to welcome you with open Arms. I am your Love, and you are Mine. My Love for you is so great that I awaken you in the middle of the night to tell you of it, for it is then that your distracted mind can best be reached. There is no greater Love than this.
You contemplate the nature of things and what My Being is. It is when your many thoughts slow down and cease that revelation can come, but just bringing thoughts to a standstill is not enough. It is when your mind is focused on Me that communion takes place. The endless flutter of thoughts diverts your attention and promotes the feeling of exile, of being abandoned. You must take responsibility for this. Single-mindedly seeking My Presence is loving Me with all your heart, mind, and soul.
You have heard people say that when things aren’t going your way, you should find something to give thanks for, and you may have shrugged your shoulders and said, “I don’t feel like giving thanks right now. Just leave me alone.” But I tell you that giving thanks opens your heart so that you can receive My blessings. It may change the course of events you are experiencing at the time, but of more importance is the fact that it diverts your attention from dwelling on unpleasant things and drawing more of the same to you. When you are giving thanks, you are resting in My Heart, and although it may seem like a leap of faith to you, releasing attention given to things you don’t want, opens doors to your receiving what I will for you, and it helps you to accept that My Will for you is perfect. My Will for you accelerates your return to your true home. To say it more accurately, it helps you come to the realization that you never truly left, and the perception of being lost was nothing more than just that, a mere perception. So, pause a moment and say, with meaning and with feeling, “Thank you blessed Father that I rest in You——always——and that I may more than just believe, that I may actually know your Holy Presence in my life and all the world around me. Thank you for Your unlimited loving care. Help me to accept that all that comes about in my life was lovingly prepared for me by You. And help me to have such compassion for all my brothers and sisters that I desire to be of assistance to them in every way possible.”
Many of you have become masters at distracting yourselves. You don’t want to be alone with Me. You even fear it. You have so forgotten your home that you don’t yearn to return, or so it seems, but in reality, the urge to distract yourselves is a desire to make the feeling of being lost acceptable, tolerable. If you would think about your situation, you would see the wisdom of pursuing a return of your split mind to My Heart. I do everything possible to lure you. I patiently wait for you. Be mindful that every day is another opportunity to choose a different pathway. The choice is yours. Yes, it must be yours. I will not pressure you. I just lean heavily in order to attract our attention. It begins for you when you cast a glance back toward the loving home you were so eager to leave. Yes, the prodigal son is destined to one day desire to return and be welcomed with open arms and a feast. Oh, how I love you! I could never be complete without you.
I send them to you, one by one, by way of hearsay, casual encounter, even embedded in news about other things. I will nudge you to attract your attention. Many need hope, something to cling to and believe in. You slip communion in on the side, and they don’t realize what has happened. Yet change is initiated in their lives, and they begin on a new path never before trodden, even if perhaps stumbling. And for that reason you need to visit them in spirit again and again. You realize your mission, your reason for being here. You begin to see meaning in everything that happens. You begin to see that your salvation lies in the care you take of your brothers and sisters, the responsibility you take upon yourself for them, your identifying with them, the knowledge of oneness with them that begins to dawn upon you. And you realize that you are My child.
As wandering souls get further and further from the Light, they begin to feel an ache, a yearning for their true home, although they usually don’t understand what they are feeling. The further they wander from a consciousness of their connection to Me, the more painful their situation becomes for them. You feel compassion for them and wish to alleviate their suffering. For some, alleviation will be beneficial because they will see it as something to rejoice in, and they will want to reconnect with Me. For others, alleviation will not bring about a turning back towards the Light, and therefore it will not be beneficial. Only I see the whole picture and can correctly determine what is best. For that reason, you should leave it up to Me. You just pray for the awakening of your brothers and sisters and offer to be of assistance in any way that is needed. Caress them in Love, for Love opens doors and turns souls to other directions.
Oh, precious child, if you only knew the joy I have when you turn towards Me and with childlike innocence ask of Me. My Joy could not but prepare the way for you, providing every possible opportunity and protecting you from all hindrances and delays. Yes, the long wait was tugging at My Heart, but My Joy is ineffable. I lovingly caress you all through the day and into the night.
There is no chance encounter. Be not so caught up in your personal activities that you miss an opportunity. Often I can radiate Love through you without your being aware of it, but there are times when conscious and intentional effort on your part is needed. If you miss an opportunity, often I will bring it to mind for you at a later time. It is never too late to be of assistance to another soul, even after it has left the earth. Let your priority ever be to be my empty vessel, always willing and ready. Your brothers and sisters will be grateful to you on some level. I call to you from every heart.
When you come before your brother’s or sister’s heart, and ask that it be opened, and you are met with reluctance, ask for patience and endurance so that not one is neglected. Someone who does not know you well, or someone who is upset with you, may resist for a few days, maybe weeks or even months. When you are totally non-threatening and quietly radiating love, that resistance to you will likely eventually melt. Persist. Don’t give up. There is no soul that is not worthy of your every effort. And I support you. That you can rely on. Not only does “a soft answer turn away wrath” but gentle love melts resistance. It is I who await you there. Reach out and lovingly touch that one, especially that one who has attempted suicide, for it was not just a call for Love. It was a scream for Love. You are that vessel though whom I answer.
Dwelling in My Peace does not mean that you withdraw from the world and think you are not to be involved in its struggles and actions, but rather you allow Me in you to be the One who engages with the forces of darkness. Be careful that you allow Me and not assume that you know how and what to do. Also, do not limit Me by holding back. Your role can seem challenging to the rules society has set up for your attitude, but when you are anchored in Me, you will not give them a second thought. You will see the wisdom of what I through you bring about. My calling requires your whole being. Any difficulty or struggle you may perceive is due to your not releasing all to Me. Do not hold back. It is your salvation to rest totally in Me. Give it some thought. Then give Me your all, and do not judge My undertakings.
You think you desire My Peace, but such Peace you do not comprehend unless you commune with Me, unless you are anchored in My Love. When that occurs, the Peace you will know cannot be disturbed by anything that happens to you or around you. My peace allows you to be totally empty so that I, through you, can bless all you encounter, yea, even those you do not know exist. Seek Me so that I may have you as an avenue to bring about My Will on earth. And forget not your brothers and sisters who are waiting and pleading for help. Do not leave them waiting. My blessings are piling up and await the open door through which they may flow. I in you; you in Me. You become Me on earth by allowing your personality to step aside for Me. What greater purpose or meaning could your life have? Think about it, ponder it, and as you do, I flow right through. When that happens, you smile and are radiant.
Many of those who dwell on earth are quick to blame someone else for everything that happens to them that they perceive to be unpleasant, without considering that they attracted these happenings to themselves. But beyond the cause of undesirable effects there is a reality that eclipses all unpleasantness. When you choose to dwell in Me——and it definitely is a choice, a choice to dwell in Love——your attention is diverted from the blame game to a sense of responsibility to not only dwell in Love, but to draw all your brothers and sisters with you. It is a matter of where you choose to be in your consciousness. It is up to you. You must make the choice, and bear in mind that bumbling through life without choosing is itself a choice. If you had an inkling of the implications of choosing or trying to avoid it, you would take stock of the seriousness of the situation and abandon your nonchalant attitude. Come, dear child, the fate of the world depends in part on you. Seek to commune with Me in all events, in all beings, so that I am come on earth. Offer Love rather than giving blame. I bid you, I encourage you, My Love, with an irresistible and an eternal countenance of Holiness.
(Oh, the sweetness of the midnight hour when the Father’s Presence is known, when He visits to speak and caress!)
When you are tossed to and fro by the vicissitudes of life on earth without an anchor in Me, that is when you feel anxious, insecure, and abandoned. When you have found your anchor in Me, the turmoil of life is just a noisome surface wind that does not shake you at all. You walk steadily and never lose your smile, and you are not hindered or forgetful of your mission to always be the vessel through which I reach out to and rescue your brothers and sisters who have lost their way. If you have not found your anchor in Me, it is your duty, as well as your salvation, to actively pursue it by practicing communion with My Spirit in them. Be about your goal, your “Father’s business,” as the blessed Christ Child told Mary and Joseph. My precious child, I am talking to you, calling to you! There is a pathway forward—right through your brother’s heart. Do you not see the beauty of My Plan for you? Such loveliness! Such loveliness!
“Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.” (Quotation from I Corinthians 2:9)
If you sit quietly and with love desire to commune with Me, you will surely feel the Love of My Heart envelop you. If you have difficulty at first, it is likely because you are hesitant to open your heart fully, perhaps in fear. Do not despair but try over and over again. I am not to be feared but rather to be approached with tenderness. When you come to Me and lovingly ask for My blessings on a brother or sister for whom you care deeply, you may in so doing find it easier to let your guard down. Come boldly before Me interceding for them, not begging but in the sense of, “Oh, Holy Father, I bring this precious one to you, carrying him in my arms, and I lift him up into Your very Arms, desiring from the depths of my heart that You bless him and that he may feel your loving embrace.” The heart that so cares for another is fearless and dares to venture where one who cares less might hesitate to go. This, My child, is true intercession. It is the path that leads you directly into My Heart, for such a one always gains access to Me.
As an earthly parent never stops praying for a wayward child who wants to try out every imaginable thing earth can offer to lead him or her astray, I, your Heavenly Father, will never stop scheming to lure you, gently arouse you, yes, even jolt you awake. Your apathy and intentional defiance will never bring you Peace and Joy, and these are what I desire for you. Could your Father desire less for you? You may resent My insistent attentiveness now, but one day you will appreciate it and give thanks for My, what you may call, tough Love. I lovingly touch My Cheek against yours as I caress your shoulder. Yes, I am your Father, and it is natural for Me that I would do so.
The world is calling out to you, hoping to be recognized by you for what it really is. Do you not hear your brothers and sisters? Do you not understand what they are really saying, or are you misinterpreting their calls because you have taken the mask seriously? Every malicious deed, every act of hate is a call for your love. Every mishap in your daily life is arranged to attract your attention to some soul clamoring for help, crying out for an embrace. Ask Me to remind you every day of the true nature of the events of your life, to help you recognize the calls for help, to remind you of why you are here. Will I not honor such a sacred request? Try Me, I implore you. Yes, I dare you, for it will open the door for Me. I am Love. Dwell in Love and you dwell in Me. Let not the most horrid mask terrorize you or the most enticing mask tempt you, but rather see both as My limitless Love reaching out to you, calling to you from beyond the mask. I in you am the Light of the world and the Hope of the world. Allowing Me to be you is a sacred trust. Oh, do not pass Me by. So much depends on you, on your willingness to participate. Love Me as I Love you. Love your brothers and sisters as I love you. I am the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow, ever Holy, ever the Hope of the world. (See I John 4:16)
No matter what someone has done to you or what may have happened that causes pain, you will never be able to get past it or release it until you forgive. True forgiveness comes when you identify the person or circumstance with Me; that is, when you accept to see the person or incident as only a mask that just appears to have reality. In other words, you allow the mask to melt away into nothingness as you focus on and commune with Me as all that is there. Accept to believe that I am all that is there, and you open the door for Me to reveal it to you. That is loving Me with all your heart, soul, and mind. It may seem challenging to you at first, but once you do it, you will see it really is very simple. I prepared a way for you a long time ago——all because of My Love for you.
There is no soul so vile it can’t be rescued. There is no soul not worthy of your total honor and love. Your most important job in fulfilling your two purposes of remembering Me and learning to experience Me in your brothers and sisters is to gently reach out in spirit and lovingly touch the hearts of them. When you do that with honor and respect, there will be a profound effect. Yes, some souls will need you to do that over and over before they begin to release their obsession with the body and the feelings of separateness. But what greater function could you have? Think about it! Am I not on earth as you if you allow it? Absolutely! Absolutely!! If you neglect to let Me be you, some souls will have to wait in darkness and hopelessness. That would be ever so sad. I have given you a great responsibility. I did not choose you lightly. Consider the consequences of choosing or not choosing to allow Me full sway, of turning your whole being over to Me.
You have two purposes in being on earth. The first is to remember Me. One way of doing that is to imagine pure holiness. You might even imagine that you were one of the shepherds who visited the Christ Child, and you stand in the presence of perfect innocence, beauty, and holiness. Your second purpose in being on earth is to learn to experience Me in your brothers and sisters. Imagine that I have come to you with each person you encounter. Be not deceived by the mask of body and personality. Give thanks for the two purposes ordained by Me, for they are your salvation. They bring you Peace and Joy, for they bring the experience of Divine Love. And you will bless the world with your heavenly smile.
My dear child, I stand beside you, as if kneeling before you, declaring My Love to you. What more can I do? I desire a response from you. I desire that you also desire Me. I desire that you return to Me and enter My Heart, whence you were created. I desire a oneness in which no perceived separation can enter your mind. You have no conception of My Love for you. Come, My beloved, accept the lover of your soul. I serenade you, and I will not cease to approach your lost and wandering soul with undying Love. So great is My Love for you. I come ever in the still of the night because that is when you are most likely to pay attention to Me. I bid you. I plead with you. Do listen to Me! Accept My declarations of Love to you! I remain your most ardent suitor. Only one who madly desires you comes in the middle of the night. Think about it! Ponder it as Mary did! It will make your heart glow.
(Again in the wee hours of the morning, about 2 a.m., I started receiving this message.)
Once you set aside the false image of your brother or sister and experience the true being there, your fears will begin to melt away into the nothingness whence they came. Just try it; just ask for it. I am trying to coax you, entice you. I am pleading with you because I miss you. You have wandered too long. We are both homesick for each other. Oh, do listen to Me and return to My Heart. If you knew how My Heart aches for you, you would do it just for My sake alone. My precious child, I gently kiss you with the Love of a Heavenly Father——your own Heavenly Father. Come!
Come, let us consider the matter together. You feel alone and abandoned because your gaze and attention have been diverted away from Me to the tinkling and glittering images of nothing more than a mirage. I call to you unceasingly, but you are so fascinated with the masks of nothingness that you do not hear Me unless you begin to have difficulties and pain. Then you cry out. I never left you: you tried to leave Me. Now, relax and turn your attention to the subtle, still, small voice deep within. Open your heart. Then you will discover a fathomless depth of Love and Peace you never could have imagined. You must learn to seek this haven of Peace all through the day and night——not just when you feel threatened. I’m waiting, My love. A banquet is prepared for you. You are the one who decides when to arrive.
(At 2 a.m. I received the message below. This seems to be the hour of visitation. Perhaps you too should listen for it at that time.)
I parade back and forth before you as your brothers and sisters every day. How can you not notice? You will notice if you desire it .Pause a moment and whisper to Me. Ask that I reveal Myself to you in them. If you truly desire it, it cannot help but happen. You will feel Me reach out to you through them. It will bring a smile to your face as you feel your heart open and experience Love, My Love, welling up within it. I in you; you in Me. That part of My Heart in them embraces that part of My Heart in you by passing through the personalities of both of you. We join Me: that part of My Heart which is in your brothers and sisters. What Joy! What Peace! What Love! The Second Coming! Salvation! The end of separation, abandonment, and yes, strife! I laugh! And so do you!
As you linger, lost in your earth consciousness, your chosen consciousness, you have no idea of My Love for you. “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.” Yet you must make the decision to know it. I cannot, will not, invade upon your free will, but once you decide that you want to know Me, the doors open for Me to prepare a way for you, for Me to make known my limitless Love for you. Then you will reach beyond the earth consciousness and allow Me to touch your heart, enliven it with more than hope: with experience, with knowing of indescribable Love. Oh, my child, how I desire and yearn for your return to My Heart. I stroke you; I caress you. I adore you; I bless you. Allow Me to embrace you, I implore you. I wait in Love and infinite patience. I smile on you. You are My Love, the desire of My Heart. (Quotation from I Corinthians 2:9)
You were created out of My own Heart. I adored you and caressed you. Somewhere along the way things went awry. You wanted to imagine what it would be like to be separate from Me, but you got lost in the imagination. That was the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. At first it was one, then another, and soon a whole group. The situation got extremely out of hand, and I sent My Son to prepare the way back and lovingly point the way to you, but those deeply entrenched in the darkness of separation rebelled against Him and abused Him to the extreme. Now you must use your imagination appropriately and responsibly to return to the knowing of who you really are. You must first imagine holiness in order to open the door to seeing and experiencing reality. Holiness, a part of My very Heart, lies there in your brother’s heart, waiting for you to recognize It. Do not delay. Do not procrastinate.
When you approach another brother in spirit and have great desire to be of assistance to him in his suffering, remember, your task is to offer total Love and acknowledgment of My Spirit within him. Do not try to force something upon him. It is your total Love that opens the door to allowing what I deem appropriate——total Love makes all things within My Will possible. In offering this, you fulfill your desire to be My servant, My child. It is a moment of holiness. Rejoice in it.
The peoples of the world have been given many opportunities to turn back from their failed experiment with the false perception of who they really are and what their true function is. Those of you who have made the right choice have, as part of your function, to pray for those who have not yet done so. Not only should you pray but you should also take a stand to protect those who are vulnerable to the temptations of darkness and to, through example, have a positive influence on those who have wandered astray, as well as those who have made a deliberate choice to follow darkness. You can be firm with love. If you do not stand up to darkness, you have yourself made a choice. As you Master said, “He that is not with Me is against Me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.” (Quotation from Matthew 12:30)
When you focus intensely enough on My Spirit in your brothers and sisters that you block out all other perceptions, the experience of holiness will make you laugh, and you will rejoice. Those about you will marvel at the radiance of your countenance, and the light shining forth from your eyes will draw them to you as a candle draws a moth. It is incumbent upon you to also speak of these things to those you meet so that they may desire to themselves have the experience, but the communing with My Spirit within them has an even deeper effect than any words could ever have. It will, albeit perhaps slowly, awaken them to the knowledge deep within that a communion with Me is possible and desirable. They may not be able to articulate what they are feeling, but they will be open and accepting in a way as never before. When you have plans to meet someone, commune with My Spirit within that one ahead of time, and you will prepare the way for a deeper encounter. Then as you converse with him or her, you will think of My Spirit there, and you will smile.
Look often upon My Spirit in the hearts of your brothers and sisters. Look through the mask of personality and body. The more you do this the more anchored you will be in Me. Anytime you feel distressed or under pressure, you need to pause and connect with Me. The more often you do this, the less likely you will be to feel lost or abandoned, and the closer you will come to praying without ceasing. Fear will melt away into nothingness.
Visitation of Spirit comes to those with open minds and spirit and who desire it. The easiest way for many is through the heart. You will feel it when your heart is open, and if you are paying attention, you will feel it when it is closed. You can open your heart by desiring to recognize and acknowledge Holiness. You can be My vessels by being open, by asking, and by being willing to be led. That also means accepting situations that will lead you to places you had not planned to go and quietly waiting for words or instruction. You must be willing to stop other activities and set them aside when visitation comes, or it will pass you by. Praying for another person and communing with My Spirit within his heart is visitation, as is receiving and delivering My Word.
(At 2 a.m. this message started coming to me.) Your detour into doing it your own way, your detour into denying where you came from and who you really are, has not turned out well. At first it was conscious defiance. You knowingly desired to identify with something not real, but then the great sleep of ignorance took hold and you could no longer turn back on a whim. Deliberate abandonment of Me became a trap you could no longer extricate yourself from without help. That was when my precious Son came to recall you. At first He was rejected, but then the pain and suffering of your predicament began to dawn upon you. You need only take His Hand and desire to enter into that liberating embrace that will save you from the torture of hopelessness. Today is the day. Take time to do it now. I meet you with outstretched Arms, My love.
You are surely your brother’s keeper, and each one in his own way can be as a shepherd to those around him. That means taking responsibility for others. Loving your neighbor as yourself means doing all that you can in a responsible way to help others. If you truly love them, you will not begrudge letting some pleasurable event pass you by as you lend someone a helping hand. Be aware that how and what you do is setting an example that others will see. Praying with love for other people is part of being your brother’s keeper. Each thought and each deed has effects far beyond what you can imagine. Lifting a brother or sister up blesses the world. Give thanks for every opportunity. You will surely know My Presence as you consciously, with intent, allow Me to be in you and participate in the lives of those touched by you.
Turn and seek to learn of Me, to know again that Love that nourishes and comforts you. Begin by just pausing a moment and speaking trustingly and tenderly from the heart to Me. Ask with love and compassion for blessings for your brothers and sisters on earth, in particular those who are going through difficult times in what may seem to be unendurable circumstances. Think of them; caress them in your thoughts; and ask that I provide a way for them that leads to a knowing of My nearness and Love. My Heart is not complete as long as you feel separated from Me, as long as you feel incomplete and abandoned. But that feeling was your choice, whether or not you realized what it would lead to, and you must be the one who makes that choice to choose again. I look lovingly upon you and wait patiently for the time in which you turn and rush into My Arms.
Prosperity and many other rewards of the physical world bring with them the temptation towards self-glorification, self-reliance, and self-indulgence. With these come forgetfulness of My Divine Spirit within you and a feeling that you have no need of Me. Pride and a sense of invulnerability are accompanied by lack of love for your brothers and sisters, and these traits bring about experiences that are destructive to you. You cannot forever deny the Divine Spark within you. My calls to you will get louder and louder, and the amount of pain you can endure that is caused by the feeling of separation from Me has its limits. Yet My tender loving kindness awaits your fearful call, so often filled with doubt.
Connection with Me cannot be totally lost because My Spirit within you is your being, but when you desire to be conscious of this connection, you will know the experience of being a part of the whole. The comfort you feel will sustain you, and you will feel complete. You will be content to just be, wherever I may send you, so that you participate in the healing of that part of the minds of your brothers and sisters that is split away from the part that still remembers its connection with Me. This contentment is the Peace that the rational mind does not understand. You then know that you are at home with Me and all that exists. The Peace is sweet, and the Joy is elevated and quiet.
The time is rapidly approaching when your country will be cleansed of ungodly forces, but I will preserve a remnant as I preserved a number of Israelites in ancient times. Be not distraught when tribulation comes, for that is a sign that something is amiss and a turning back is needed. Children of Light are placed on earth at this time to help anchor Light there. Keep your heart close to Mine so that you remain one of them and remain resting in My Will.
When you turn to Me often, giving thanks to Me as the source of all things, you will have less need for stressful experiences to remind you of Me. But make it more than just words of thanksgiving. Allow your heart to open and feel the love that truly giving thanks causes. That is not so say that experiences that require more from you won’t come your way, but when they do, you will be so used to turning to Me that you will be less inclined to having a negative feeling and more inclined to seeing the possibility for greater blessings beyond the experiences. It is My desire that you come closer and closer to praying without ceasing, that is, knowing that you rest in My Heart and are safe. That is your salvation.
You have forgotten Me. Your memory fails you. You can’t remember where you came from and don’t understand why you are lost in the vain imaginings of your mind. You grope in darkness and can no longer hear my voice calling to you, the voice of Love. You are so lost that you don’t even desire to be saved from your predicament. Yet, to find your way back, you must call for help in some way. Acknowledging your helpless state and calling out to Me, even when not consciously, opens the door to me. I am always there, always there. When you reach out to Me, it gives me great joy. And when you are ready, I will make you to know how great My love for you is.
About 12:30 a.m., as I was thinking about the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, the thought came to me to take the hurricane into my heart and envelop it with the Love that Christ inspires us to offer, and it seemed I was hearing a voice say, “You have no idea how many people I have placed this idea into at this time. As you in oneness surround this hurricane with love, the Love of Christ in you, miracles of Love come about. You are asked to also take the turmoil and strife in the world, such as the war in the Middle East, into your hearts, for the heart is where I abide. This is My inspiration to you. Hold it close to you, deep within. So are you Me on earth.”
You are so caught up in your many tasks and chores that you seldom direct your attention to the limitless Spirit within, seldom take time to commune with Me. It is essential that you connect with Me more often so that when turmoil strikes, you have an anchor that will stabilize you and prevent you from being tossed around and feeling frantic. The subtle efforts of My Spirit to attract your attention are overpowered in your consciousness by your endless activities. You need to set aside time to read My Word and, by reflecting upon it, allow yourself to be drawn towards Me. I never stop reaching out to you.
In the midst of turmoil, strife, disaster, and even death, whether caused by man or nature, always keep your mind stayed on Me. That will bring you peace, calm, and comfort. It will nourish your soul. Bear in mind that I may have placed you, wherever you find yourself, so that you can be the vessel through which I extend hope and healing to others. This is a holy trust. It is your life’s mission and should not be brushed aside by self-centered interests and distractions. I depend on you and support you in all ways. Remember that. Remember it. Your Master’s hand is ever upon your shoulders. Pause a moment. Acknowledge Him. Embrace Him.
The word of the loving Father came to me in the middle of the night saying: Your prayers are powerful, My child. When you come before Me acknowledging My Holiness and the Holiness of My Spirit within you, that can literally change the course of your life and that of your brothers. It can change the path of your country. And though some further change in the course may still be necessary, the manner of the unfolding of it depends on your willingness to earnestly come before Me with purity of heart, petitioning for your brothers and seeking to commune with Me. Do not fail to do this! If you knew the difference it makes and the responsibility you have, it would dominate your thoughts and direct your attention all through the day and even the night. I wait for you. I expect you. My dear child, do not disappoint Me! You have an effect on the outcome of the world.
You must put your faith in Me and trust that when you do, I look after you according to My Will: what I deem to be the best for you and your development. What you consider to be best is based on your very limited knowledge and is brought about by your opinions and desires. I will lead you as gently as is at all possible out of the gutters of indulgence in things that cannot truly satisfy you. If you cultivate trust in Me, you will notice that in the insecurity of not knowing what is going on and what will happen, you begin to feel My Presence and to release your fear of the unknown. That will bring you comfort as nothing else can bring. You will then know what walking with Me means, and I will become your first love.
Pause and turn inward. Listen intently for My still, small voice. I never cease to call to you, and My voice is one of Love, imploring you to, for a moment, let your attention to the distractions of your soul give way to attraction to a holiness that is healing balm to your troubled spirit. I hold you in My Arms and weep that you are not even aware that I hold you. You brought your suffering and despair upon yourself, and I would cleanse you and heal you. I knock continuously but quietly, nonintrusively. You must be attracted to Me and turn to Me of your own free will. I will not, I cannot, force it upon you. If you become quiet and lift up your heart to Me, you will surely feel a new hope and notice a joy deep within. You will be glad. I await your return with yearning.
I stand there every hour of every day relentlessly knocking, trying to get your attention. I cannot be intrusive because the choice must be one that you make out of a desire to return to eternal Joy and Love. I must entice you, not force you, but you may only harken to the gentle knock when your pain and disappointment have become so great that you can no longer tolerate it. Regardless of why you ultimately make the decision, the comfort and embrace you receive will be the same. Call to Me. I wait patiently and eagerly.
And yet I knew when I created you and gave you free will that you would become so fascinated with the appearances of creation that you would turn away from Me and pursue these phantoms. I knew that I would have to wait for you to learn through experience that they offered you nothing before you would truly treasure your relationship with Me. The latter relationship will be deeper as a result of the painful experiences of having been deceived. I do not doubt the outcome. My attentiveness to you is as constant as ever as I observe the pain the process causes you.
I wait for you night and day. I call to you, but you do not respond. You blindly walk towards destructive repercussions of the path you are on as though in a stupor. I am the still, small voice, but you must become still in order to hear My voice. You are My love, and My Heart aches for you. Do you not realize that the unfulfilled feelings you have and the unhappiness that drives you to grasp at more and more distractions is really your yearning for Me? It saddens Me that often only drastic and painful experiences attract your attention to Me and awaken you, but I look beyond that towards the Joy that eventually will come. I wait. I await your return.
I am not only comfort for the weak but also for the strong who understand the source of their strength and then wish to extend a helping hand to the needy. Be not deceived by your apparent strength and invulnerability. Consider what happened to King Saul. And forget not the doors a penitent heart opened for King David. My Son Jesus is always ready to accompany you and lead you back to Me. You need only ask.
I purposed to raise up a second nation dedicated to Me and My statutes. The intentions of your founders cannot be thwarted. Those of you unworthy of the precious gift laid at your feet will not be allowed to obstruct and will forfeit the gift. I took your ancestors by the hand and led them into freedom. Their uprightness was as sweet smelling incense rising up to Me. Turn back from your waywardness and accept what I require, and the blessings of Love, Peace, Joy, and Purity will then be your reward.
My Heart is sorrowful as I consider what will be necessary to return you from your rejection of Me. Your lack of regard for the holiness of My Spirit, which is the life of your unborn children, your senseless indulgence in sensual pleasures that knows no boundaries, your lack of compassion for those who are needy and suffering, your unwillingness to put the joy of someone else before self-centered desires: all these are evidence of how lost you are in the darkness of a perceived and illusory sense of existence. Willfully casting your gaze away from Me has led you to forgetfulness of who you really are, and you must be jolted awake. The suffering of your disconnectedness and your crying out at the pain of the results of your choices pull at My Heart, but they are necessary to convince you that turning back to Me is what you truly want.
I never stop calling to my children and waiting for their return from detours into dreams that melt at a touch. The call must be intensified if there is no response. Just a little willingness opens the door to possibilities you cannot imagine. It saddens Me to see that some will not turn and seek something else until their pain, the pain of separation, has become so great they can no longer endure it. The distractions you worship, your idols, are often in your mind——are ideologies that change with every whim.
(While contemplating the life-changing experiences of Hurricane Irma on so many people, I received this message, based on the idea that all things work together for good.)
The scripture verse that says, “In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” may seem a very difficult challenge in extreme circumstances, but what it means is, you can see all things that happen to you as opportunities used by My Love——specifically to get your attention and bring you forward, yes, by leaps and bounds towards a closer relationship with Me. Often you feel closer to Me when you are in danger or have suffered devastating events. Never forget: Your relationship with Me is the most important thing in your life. I caress you with My Love through it all, and I am not punishing you but rather Loving you. The time will come when you understand and say, “Thank you, Father, for such Love! Thank You for Divine Love!” (Quotation from I Thessalonians 5:18)
Ask that I remove the darkness that obscures your view of Me, and I will part the clouds of your illusory world that make you feel abandoned, so that you, at first with faltering steps, venture forth, but then rush breathlessly into My Arms with ecstatic joy to know that you do rest in My Arms and dwell eternally in My Heart. You will then decide to join My dedicated children in rescuing your brothers and sisters who flounder about in the ignorance of darkness and despair. I hold you ever close to Me.
Oh, precious child, if you only knew the joy I have when you turn towards Me and with childlike innocence ask of Me. My Joy could not but prepare the way for you, providing every possible opportunity and protecting you from all hindrances and delays. Yes, the long wait was tugging at My Heart, but My Joy is ineffable. I lovingly caress you all through the day and into the night.
I once said, “As you do it unto one of the least of these, you do it unto Me.” When there are those who offend you or attack you, pause and think of My Spirit within them. As you focus on the beauty and love of My Spirit, you will feel less threatened, and you will feel the guardrail you have erected before your heart begin to release. Think of the offence as an error you can look past. Think of your hurt feelings as a result of your failure to recognize Me there. Then you will smile, and there will be a radiance about you as you feel My embrace.
I am ever with you, wherever you are, whatever you may do, and will guide you. I care for all your concerns, and My Loving Kindness extends to all. I am mindful of your every move and every thought. I nudge you when you are going astray and give you a quiet joy when you remain in the right way—aligned with holiness. Be still and recognize this. Be still and know My Presence, the Still Small Voice. I envelop you with My Love.
Give attention and listen to the words of your Heavenly Father, out of Whose Heart you were born. There must be repercussions for every thought, word, and deed, for only thus are you prodded to turn back from your ghastly imaginations of reality. You need only offer a little willingness to turn away from the window of mirages and back towards the Light whence you came. If you offer this willingness, you will be supported from every side. If you do not, the events resulting from the path you have chosen will become so painful that they get your attention. My Love for you would not be total if I did not allow this. Those who would lure you away from Me will not be given unlimited power to entice and seduce you.
When you pray for the nations of the world and remove the darkness within them, the effect is greater than that of those with mighty weapons and their power of coercion. Your duty to the world is great and should not be neglected, but you must have a pure heart, for only from a pure heart can such effect come. In a pure heart I dwell and from there I bless the world.
When you ask another brother to allow Me through him to bless you, you are encouraging him to open his heart, and this very act allows him to release his burdens and misperceptions. It also allows you to see him in his pure and natural state, and that brings heavenly Joy to you. When you feel his embrace, you know he is now open to receiving blessings of release and healing and may now accept his role as a child of God come to earth to bless it. Holy is that day, for My Kingdom is come on earth.
(May the reader understand that the word “sister” may be substituted for “brother.”)
Never doubt that you may commune with My Spirit in those who have left the realm of earthly experience. Often these souls need the Love you allow to flow from Me through you, and it is your offering that moves them to open up and accept It. Be attentive to them.
When you have joy in Me, it transforms your life, for you become oblivious to those things in your surroundings that distress and depress you. In like manner, when you focus on My Spirit in your brothers and sisters, you release your condemnations of their character flaws, even their ungodliness, that you object to, yes, even despise. And the miracle of it is that not only are you released, but they are also. You may even observe a difference in them at times. This I how you function as My child on earth.
Forget not your calling. You are called to pray, to pray every day, to pray without ceasing. Pray that your Father purify your leaders. Pray that only those who can abide your Father’s Light and Love may be in positions of leadership. Pray that the efforts of those not aligned with your Father’s Will be turned into results pleasing to Him. Continue to cleanse the darkness from the halls of leadership. Sing tones of holiness into those areas. So do you function as the Light of the world. Do not waver or desist.
