Throughout the ages, I have heard you ask Me to give you boons. I hear you. Today I heard you say:
“Beloved God, I want to ask of You to please banish stress, worry, fear from my life and heart. God, as I say this, I realize it would be better for me to ask You:
“Beloved God, please banish stress, worry, fear from everyone’s life once and for all.”
What do you think I’m working on, dear One?
I might word your question differently. I might say very simply:
God, please bring peace to this Earth. Beloved God, teach us to know love and trust and let go of uncertainty which is another name for lack of trust.
Now I say to you:
Beloveds, My whole attention is already on this – we can call it a project. It is a Peace Project. It is a Love Project.
I, too, wonder why all Our desires have not yet materialized. Then I remind Myself that there is a great rush of love and a great demand for peace.
I could also phrase this differently. Do not be offended at what I say:
Be not swallowers of negativity. Be not sheep who follow other sheep as though you were blind. Use your own heart as a bell that tolls Truth. Your heart is to ring true. When your heart rings fear, you can know you are misleading yourself.
You might say, if your house is burning down, that fear is good because it tells you to get out of the house right now. This is so, no argument there.
Let me put it another way. Fear of burning is fear for the body you are housed in. The body, as precious and vital as it is, is secondary to the Truth of You. The Truth of You is more subtle, beloveds, and of more account. Your body is temporary regardless of fire or anything else.
Swing your attention to that which is forever, and this is life itself. Life – and your life – is Infinite. This is Oneness. You have always been. You will always be. This is as much fact as the fact that your body is impermanent.
How can it be that it is so easy for you to believe in death of the body and so-seemingly difficult to believe in Life Everlasting? Death of the body is incidental. It is an incident. Birth of a baby gives joy, yet the soul of the baby is a continuation that is unstoppable. Eternity is not a myth nor is it a fool’s errand.
Why would anyone on Earth prefer body over soul?
When I put it this way, you might say: “O God, of course, I see the value of soul over body. Of course, I know the Significance of Soul.”
Yet this is in theory, beloveds, isn’t it? What you hold on to in life in the world — your body – cannot be held onto. You can’t hold on to it. No one can.
Find a way to look at death other than a tragedy. Death of the body is just an incident. It is a perceived happening.
Life Itself, life that does not depend upon a physical body, is never interrupted. The joke is that you conceive and believe that life is indeed dependent upon the body, as if the body were the whole sum and total. Ah, life of the body is what is the brief interlude.
Welcome this interlude. There are reasons for this interlude. Give it all you’ve got.
Remembering Me is the same as remembering the Fluidity of the Soul. It is not time that marches on. It is the Soul.
You are not your body. You never were. You are Soul. You live on the level of the Soul. We are Chums, you and I. We hold hands throughout Eternity.
Is there something else you would rather do?
