My grace I give to you. All is My grace. I graciously bestow the world to you and you to the world. I am most gracious in My gifts to you. Sometimes you recognize My gifts as gifts and sometimes you do not. Surely, you must accept that life itself is a gift, and that it makes sense to receive and acknowledge a gift that has been given you. How will your life be different when you recognize life itself as a great gift? You will have thrown off any concepts of life as burden and accepted the grace of God.
Love yourself enough to recognize your worth, or do you think I am mistaken, and not you?
I created you with great care, for I am an Artist. I painted a picture of you in My mind, and lo and behold, you arose from it! I conceived you, and thus you were created. You are a gift I gave to Myself. I honored Myself with My Creation. I posted a picture of you in front of Me, and so you came to be. You were birthed from My heart and mind. I am the One Mind, and I am the One Heart, and I depicted you. I arose to the occasion of Creation. Now you must rise to the occasion of yourself.
Imagine what life will be when you conceive yourself as a diamond, not as a diamond in the rough, but a diamond so loved, so polished, that you can only shine. What if you knew you were a great treasure — would you keep your disguises? When you know you are King or Queen, will you wear rags? When you know you are royalty, will you stoop?
Oh, My, what you will become when you accept the Truth of yourself! You are not at all that which you have thought. All of life in the world may be illusion, but you have been deluded when it comes to yourself. You are in a great fog as to your Identity.
Perhaps you have thought that life is a debt you have to pay off so you feel more indebted than grateful, but a gift granted is a gift, not an obligation. If you think you must earn your keep in My heart, then earn it as one who loves. Love as I do love. See as I do see, and you will only love. See yourself as I do see you, and your light will extinguish all darkness from your eyes, and in this way, you will light the world.
What did Christ and the Great Ones do but reveal the truth of what man is? You were created One with Me. You were not an afterthought. You were predicated upon Earth to be the Greatness I made. I made not smallness. Then do not make yourself small. Do not incur smallness. Know your Greatness. Deem your worth.
When you know you are a Great Light on Earth, where will darkness exist? When you know you are Light, what can you do but shine? If you have ever deemed yourself less than Great Light, you have demeaned yourself, and in the process demeaned Creation and all those who live in it with you.
But now you know that your heart is a Star of Light. Your heart is a star plucked from the Heavens. Your heart sits in the center of you as a token of My love and My appreciation for your being My child.
