We’ve heard it said many times that our unfinished issues will come up for us to be resolved and Saul points to this as being a time when that is happening. He advises simply accepting whatever state arises.
Put another way, be with whatever arises and observe it. That allows for the completion of the original issue which lies at the heart of any piece of unfinished business. Unfinished business lingers because we refused in the first instance to experience through to completion whatever traumatic circumstances we once faced. If we now, as adults, allow ourselves to complete the unexperienced experience, the unfinished business completes itself and the whole thread of suffering disappears.

Humanity has arrived at a very important stage of its spiritual evolution, as it moves from attitudes of distrust and defense against one another to a profound and permanent realization that loving cooperation is the only practical way to live together on the jewel that is Planet Earth.
As you look around at the damage that has been done and that continues to be done to the whole ecosystem, including humanity, for self-centered personal gain, it is difficult for you to believe that major changes in perspective and behavior are already in progress worldwide. Nevertheless, they are.
A very large number of you have been working for lifetimes to bring the ideas for these essential, wonderful, and enlightened changes to your human sisters and brothers in order that they may be put into effect to enable all to live in peace and abundance. There is no need for poverty, deprivation, or repression to be endured anywhere, and the work that is being done to bring an end to endemic worldwide privation will ensure that no one is left in need.
The changes that will occur to bring in peace and abundance for all are very complex, and the preparations necessary to bring them about are approaching completion. But there will be some confusion initially as the changes start to occur, because they are quite unprecedented – nothing like them has ever been undertaken during Earth’s long history.
Many of you are having, or have friends or relatives who are having, severe personal relationship difficulties in which it seems impossible to find any meeting point between the myriad differing perceptions you have of one another. At this time all the issues that you individually need to address in your lives, so that love and forgiveness can replace the many negative and damaging attitudes to which you have been so attached for so long, are coming to the surface of your conscious awareness in a very emphatic manner, as part of these necessary changes in perspective and behavior. This is, to say the least, very unsettling for you, especially if they are issues with which you thought you had already dealt satisfactorily, or even issues which may seem to you not to be your issues at all!
This is a time for great patience and compassion as you are not alone in your emotional turmoil. Everyone with whom you interact is going through his or her own previously unaddressed personal issues, indicated by physical and/or emotional discomfort or pain. Being a human is very demanding because your egos are constantly striving to get you to focus your attention on your worries and fears, and when this occurs it is very difficult for you to focus on the lesson that the discomfort is attempting to draw to your attention. Even when you are aware that there is a lesson that you are meant to be learning, it can still be extremely difficult for you to understand what the lesson is.
Mostly it is simply to accept. To accept whatever state it is that you are experiencing, rather than trying to work out the reason for it and correct it. Because as soon as you start to reason your ego becomes involved, making judgments, and suggesting to you that you have already done the work and learnt your lessons. It reminds you of previous suffering you experienced when dealing with the ongoing issues of being human, and tells you that you have surely been through enough already. This leaves you feeling rather helpless because it seems that there is no solution, and this seems very unfair. You may even feel “Well, what on earth does God want me to do? Can’t He see that I am doing my best? Doesn’t He see how much I am hurting?”
Well, God only wants you to open your hearts and accept the abundance of Love that He is offering you. Nothing else! But as long as you believe that you have issues to resolve, lessons to learn, and are attempting to resolve them with your mind, you effectively close your hearts to the Love that is constantly offered to you. Acceptance of your situation just as it is, without trying to figure out the reasons for it, will decrease your stress levels and start encouraging your hearts to open to receive God’s Love. This will lead you towards awakening from the nightmare, the illusion in which it seems that you have your existence.
With so very much love, Saul.
