Day 126 - Sacred Garden of the Heart

Little One, I would speak to you today of your daily practice. What calls to you? What do you most long for? Let your heart follow the source of this longing. Do you desire sweet communion? If this is your desire, if you desire to walk this path of closeness, then tarry. Do not rush in and out of this sacred presence, but linger as one who is reluctant to leave the Beloved. Savor each moment, not as an obligatory, perfunctory call, but with anticipatory delight. Be mind-full. Be grace-full. Be heart-full. This is the essence of great fullness of heart, the delight, the wonder, the passion which is returned to you measure for measure, grace for grace, love for love.

O Dearest Heart! When you think to enter the Garden of the Beloved, does your heart not race? Does your breath not quicken? Does your spirit not sing? Does the desire to behold the Beloved not give wings to your feet?

Allow this to be the attitude of  your heart as you approach the Divine. Present to the Beloved your most precious gifts and receive beyond your wildest imaginings, for you are greatly beloved. Know this truth: The Beloved is waiting. He is attending you with even greater desire and more passionate longing. Yield to His care. Dearest One, do not regard this as a regimen or discipline, for this is Rapture. This is Bliss.

Little One, there is no limit to the love of the Beloved for the beloved. Do you feel this? This is the answer to your soul’s longing, the healing for every wound, and the fulfillment of every desire. Allow this love to transform you.

Consider your tradition of fairy tales - Prince Charming, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Snow White. The longing is the same, to hold and to be held, to know and to be known, to love and to be loved. These tales each refer to the awakening of awareness, the quickening of desire, the ecstasy of fulfillment. The “happily ever after” is real. These are not stories of childhood fantasy, but of spiritual hunger and its satisfaction. These are stories of great spiritual truth. Problems arise, Little One, when human beings look to other humans to satisfy their longing for the Divine. This creates many spiritual and psychological dilemmas for you. It initiates vicious cycles of futility, projection, and wounding. The answer to every dilemma, the solution to every problem is to return to the Source of the soul’s longing.

Do you hear the truth of these words? It is sad to us that the current trend is to re-write these stories into more socially correct tales rather than to acknowledge and satisfy the soul’s longing. While this revision may be more politic, it denies the great spiritual truth of the longing of the beloved for the Beloved. The Search for the Beloved is fundamental to the human experience. Its suppression forces its manifestation into addiction, violence, and promiscuity. We would say only this to you: Honor this longing and hearken to its call. The Beloved is calling you.

Be love. Be loved. Beloved.

Day 125 - Riding the Ripples

Little One, we would speak to you briefly. You feel as though you have done something wrong, but you are incorrect in that assumption. Do not judge how you feel either by situation or circumstance. We would suggest that you bear witness to yourself and to your process. Ride with the ripples in your pond. This is a good place for you to be - a rocking boat. Enjoy the ride. Do not balk. Be patient for yet a while longer.
All is in readiness for you. You resist these words, yet you sense their truth. Can you not trust that all is well? You puzzle over relationships, yet you know and understand much of relationships and their value. You puzzle over the power that you give away to people within the context of your relationships. Follow the energy of these dynamic exchanges and you will learn much regarding your power and your energy leakages.

Relationships represent the dynamic flow of energy. There is push-pull, give-take of energy. When we speak to you of  “giving heart and taking heart,” this is the energy to which we are referring. Your lesson is to be openhearted in every moment. This is the challenge of the Heart. This is the essence of Truth.

Many defenses have arisen in your relationships. This is the crux of the dilemma. Fear and defense wound and create an illusion of separation. Recognize this as illusion. Love is the reality, Little One. We have spoken to you of this simple truth many times. The “soul-ution” to every problem is to open your heart. No matter what the illusion, an open heart dispels it.

We have spoken to you of great fullness of heart. Yet, how can you experience great fullness of heart if your heart is closed? It is a challenge, Little One, to be openhearted in the presence of fear and pain, doubt and despair, but we would remind you to yield to grace and to surrender to love.

Keep the boards off the windows, Little One, for all is well.

Be love. Be loved. Beloved.

Day 124 - Global Healing

Little One, you are experiencing so much confusion. What has changed, dearest one, but that you have moved away from this present moment? 

What is true in this moment? That you are loved unconditionally. Can you witness this truth for yourself? Observe the perfect witness of nature surrounding you. Do you not see the perfection of every creature, each insect, bird, cloud, pine cone? Savor the splendor of each moment, for this is the source of your Truth.

Consider the splendor of this moment, the flight of the dragonfly and its graceful dance. What lessons have these winged friends to teach you, for all are teachers? Attend well and wisely to their lessons. Meditate on their flight of freedom. Follow their example and allow your soul to fly free.

Dearest Heart, there are many things that we would say to you today. You have spoken of many things that you are desirous of understanding, but today we would speak to you of power, more precisely, the power to create. We have spoken to you previously of the magnificent power resident in each human being. This is the power of intention. The power to create from the heart which is the center of power. We have spoken to you of the power to create healing and grace. Yet today briefly, we would discuss with you the power that human beings have to create disease, famine, war, pollution, and death. Once again, Little One, it is true that the possibilities are endless.

You have seen for yourself that you can create either illness or wholeness in your body, either harmony or chaos in your relationships. Do you see that each individual has the potential to create these same conditions?

The tragic condition of Terra is a reflection of the human condition, her inhabitants, and the condition of their hearts. Do you see and understand the import of this teaching? This is why we say to you that it is imperative that the vibrations of these teachings, these words, be broadcast. Trust in the rightness of these teachings.

The condition of your planet is a measure of its disconnection from the Divine Principle of the Love Force. The degree of pollution and the depletion of resources are in direct proportion to the misalignment of energies. This is a spiritual condition that is manifesting in the physical realm, and the source of its cure, the source of all healing is to return to the source of all life, to return to Love.

Little One, you cannot reverse the damage on a physical level, for unless there is spiritual healing, all efforts are for naught. The only remedy, the only “soul-ution,” for Terra is the healing of her children. As her children heal, the planet will regain its energetic and ecological balance as well. Love heals all.

We have given you many teachings on healing, yet we will repeat them here: The source of all healing is the source of all life. Healing begins by the opening of the heart to the Divine Principle of Love. There is no other "soul-ution," but the path of Love.

Do not underestimate the power of one open heart to change the world. Imagine the possibilities for grace and healing as hearts around the world begin to open to new possibilities of power. Love created the Universe, and Love will restore the personal and collective energetic balance of the planet.

Do not be distracted or disheartened by illusion. Do not believe for even one moment that this is a difficult endeavor, for this creates energy blockages. Know in your very deepest being, to the very center of your soul, that the work has begun. Keep opening. Keep loving.

Be Grace. Be Peace. Be Love. Beloved.

Day 122 - Winds of Change

Little One, we are happy that you have taken this time to be with us to discuss this work and your life. These seem to be the issues that you focus on most, and this is fitting for your work is your life. It is your heart’s work that you understand to be different from a job or career. This is the work that gives life and light to your earthly existence.

We would briefly address two issues before we move on to other topics. First, the issue of boldness need not cause heaviness in your spirit, yet we feel this in you. We would say to be kind to yourself. Ask for a deeper understanding of boldness. Boldness. What does this word mean? What are its qualities? This is a missing piece for you, and you may find it while you are here, if you will attend to yourself and to our words.

What are your obstacles to boldness? Are there any? In order to be truly free,  Little One, you must be bold. Yet, you know that it is Truth that will set you free. So then, what is the connection between your boldness, your truth, and your freedom?

The second issue of attention is the matter of your life as you know it. This will be changing. This is not new information for you, Dear One. You have known this since the beginning. Your life must change for all of life is change. These coming changes need not be difficult, but they must be complete. The quality of your life must be in alignment with your essence – to do less would be a lie and without godness, without goodness.

You feel this truth, yet there is another truth that you have not yet understood. This is the Truth: These changes will occur as naturally as night follows day and day follows night. Allow the beauty and grace of your being to fully unfold in your life. Cease worry. Embrace each moment with a child’s delight. Laugh, Little One. It is your secret weapon against fear; it is your “ray gun.”

Now that we have taken care of business, we would speak to you of other things. First is the nature of trust. If you examine the word, you will see that its root is grounded in Truth. Attend to this, for in order for trust to exist, there must be acknowledgment and respect for the Truth whence it springs. All truth comes from God. When the Christos said, “I AM the Truth.”  He demonstrated and declared to all that he is rooted in God. Is your desire, is your longing, not the same: to sink deep roots into the truth of God, to drink from the waters of Spirit, to grow in the garden of the Beloved into a tree of Life that brings of goodness to all who partake of its fruit?

When there is doubt, you do not doubt yourself only, but you doubt God as well. You are denying the fundamental truth, for God has declared that you are the image and likeness of the Divine. Do not complicate this. The choice is clear. Trust God or trust not, but do not vacillate. This dishonors all. Decide on this day whom you will serve, and decide with boldness.

Dive deeply, dearest one, into the waters of Truth. Drink deeply of the water of life, for naught else will quench your thirst or satisfy your longing.

LO: What is the difference between meekness and boldness? Are they not contradictory?

This is a good question, one that we will endeavor to answer clearly and without ambiguity, for we understand that this appears to be a paradox; yet, in truth, you are called to be meek in your boldness and bold in your meekness. This is again an issue of balance and harmony, of the sun and the moon. We say this to you, hear it well: There is nothing so strong as gentleness; there is nothing so gentle as true strength.

The creatures that you befriend in the forest, love in part the meekness that you possess, for in truth you walk in meekness. This is grace and we would not seek to change this blessing you bring to others, for in this meekness you acknowledge the godness present in each being. Yet in boldness, you acknowledge the godness in yourself, for this is authentic power: to be seeded in love, rooted in truth, and grounded in god. Boldness allows others to witness the I AM of your beingness, thus bringing grace to all.

There is no conflict between these qualities. They are both desirous  and both qualities must exist in equal measure. The meek shall inherit the earth, and the bold shall be as god. This blending of energy is the essence of true power. Consider again the oak tree: its power lies in its flexibility as well as its strength. Stand true, Dear Heart, to your truth that is the only truth. Embrace meekness, embrace boldness, but be love. There will be much blessing. Yield as the branches of the trees to the wind, which is the breath of God.

Be love. Be loved. Beloved One.
