One of My dear children has asked why are lies believed. Why are lies believed over truth? Everyone has had truth belied one time or another, just as everyone — I say everyone but perhaps not you — has had their own lies believed or semi-believed and started to believe them himself.
Why do My holy and beloved children often hold on to lies more than truth?
The deeper question is: Why are there lies? Why would a child who is Mine resort to lies? Why does he fear he needs to?
I will say that lies are often spoken, lies that they may be, because they are closer to the truth. Even as the facts are misrepresented, they represent a greater truth. This what I say is not to endorse lying but to reveal the good behind even lies and even lies that are aimed straight at your heart.
In lying, one portrays himself as he would like to be and would like to be seen, not as he may have done. Even in lying, he wants the truth of himself to be known, that he is capable of only good, and would never do that which he has done, or, if he accepts that which he has done, then he accepts it only so far as he has done it for good and not for wrong, so it was not, in his case, a wrongdoing. To his mind, it was a necessary defense or attack. He lied consciously or unconsciously to get what he thought he had to have.
Be wary of attachment to that which you want.
One who has lied has fought tooth and nail for what he wants and wants to believe, and he pays mightily. But whatever another’s design in telling less or other than truth, We are not here to talk about him. The subject is you and the consequence of his lies that have hurt you to your core.
If everyone is here to be your teacher, then what is your lesson? This seems very hard to bear. You are the injured party, and I tell you to find your lesson.
I know you feel that you are screaming in the wilderness, and no one hears you. You feel that even I do not hear you. You think I fluff off your pain and the pain you feel accruing to those dear to you because of hurtful lies and a judge’s decision that alters your life and those who matter most to you.
Let Me tell you something you are not ready to hear. No matter how unjust this appears to be, no matter how unjust this is, there is good here. There is good for you and, and, as unbelievable as this may seem, there is good for all involved. You cannot predict the good, and you cannot begin to see it now, but there is good nevertheless. That which is yours cannot be taken away. That which is in your heart is within your heart. Your love is not lessened. That which is yours, you keep. Whatever happens in the physical does not begin to equal what happens in the spiritual. And your spirit is intact. Your influence is no less than if the judge had said Yes to you.
You, who have been hurt to the core, will rise from the ashes of this decision. In this, if We must speak of win or lose, you have won. Even in your loss, you have won. Your life is going to triumph, My beloved.
There has been a fire, and in the ashes lie diamonds unscathed.
If you have to love from afar, then you will love from afar.
On the surface, your life has turned upside-down. The changes are in circumstance. Circumstances are not forever, and circumstances are not the undoing of you. There has been no change except in circumstance. Circumstances may seem like everything to you, but they are not.
Keep moving forward, My beloved. You are, despite the injustice, gaining new strength and new direction, and you will see that there is a happy beginning in all this.
Leave off blaming yourself, another, Me. Keep your heart on target. Do not abandon Me nor your belief in good. More than injustice, cynicism is the bane to your heart.
