God’s Love for His children is utterly beyond your comprehension while you are experiencing life as humans within the illusion. Your whole concept of Love is severely constrained by the limits that the illusory reality places on your cognitive abilities. Love is Reality. It is the force field, the divine energy field of infinite proportions within which all that exists is contained. There is nothing beyond it because it is all that exists, it is Love, and everything other than that, which seems so real to you, is illusion, a conglomeration of imaginary concepts in a constant state of decay because they have no substance. You are constantly dreaming them into existence, and when you awaken they will dissolve into the nothingness from which you imagined them.
So focus your attention on Love instead of on the distractions of the illusion. You can experience It as compassion, acceptance, forgiveness, kindness, generosity, cooperation, gentleness, harmony, contentment, and peace. The more of those concepts that you embrace and build into the life you lead, express, and demonstrate, the deeper and stronger will be your experience of aliveness and of oneness with Love, with one another, and with your Father.
Your unavoidable destiny is to awaken into Reality, the Presence of God, the divine energy field of infinite unconditional Love in which all sentient beings have their eternal existence from the first moment of their creation. In that state the power and the possibilities available to you are of course limitless and will encourage and enable your talents and abilities to develop and expand way beyond your present imaginative capabilities.
It is a state of permanent ecstatic joy where all that you feel, think, or do is an experience of perfect aliveness and well-being. It is the state that God created to ensure that you, His beloved children, existed permanently in blissful harmony with Him and with each other.
As you struggle with the pain, suffering, confusion, and disharmony which your illusory physical reality provides, it is almost impossible for you to imagine in any meaningful way the joy that you will rediscover when you awaken. What most of you are quite able to imagine is a state of abundance in which the physical pleasures that you enjoy in the illusion, albeit rarely and fleetingly, would be available for all of humanity permanently and without exception, as opposed to the severely limited opportunities for pleasure presently available to be had only by a very small percentage of you, and which, in any event, never last.
If that was what your Father had planned and created for you, it would indeed be a hollow mockery, for as you awaken into the realization and wonder of who you truly are, any desire for those limited ephemeral pleasures will dissolve instantly, along with the illusion with which they were born.
You are divine beings, and only divine pleasures will bring you the joy, bliss, and ecstasy appropriate to that state of being. And that is what you will experience when you awaken, because that is what God has prepared for you. There is nothing within Reality that could disturb you in even the slightest fashion for even an instant.
Within the illusion, however, even though you know deep within that you are infinitely loved, doubts arise, and they are one of the most corrosive aspects of it. So focus on the field of Love that envelops you in every moment, and know that your doubts are groundless, and that you will awaken into the brilliance of Reality, your eternal Home.
With so very much love, Saul.
