When you awaken from the dream that you are experiencing as reality, your whole concept of life’s meaning will be mightily and permanently altered by the knowledge your “acute” wakefulness reveals to you. It will be a moment of astonished amazement and delight as you recognize yourselves as you truly are – perfect divine beings of great beauty, at one with each other and with God. To attempt to describe that realization in any way that would be meaningful to you is quite impossible; suffice it to say that your extreme happiness when it occurs will be boundless.
As you await this grand moment of enlightenment, continue to practice compassion and loving kindness in every moment, and forgive yourselves and one another for all your failures and betrayals so that you can accept with grace the abundance of Love your Father constantly offers you, for yourselves and to share indiscriminately with all sentient beings. Love is your true nature; It is like an immeasurably vast energy field that contains all of creation, and It is your eternal and unbreakable connection to God. To feel that energy flowing through you is intensely exhilarating and empowering, as you realize that it is indeed the Power of God and that He has given It to you so that you may share with Him all that He is. Truly the Love He has for you is ineffable, and you will experience It, understand It, and recognize It as your own, knowing that in Him you are eternally complete.
To awaken into the wonder and joy of this knowledge is your destiny. You cannot avoid it because God created you one with Him. Yes, you chose to experience separation from Him by building an illusory reality and hiding yourselves within it. It is an unreal and unawakened state where you could imagine experiences that were unloving and very painful. However, being unreal, it cannot and will not last. You are Love…created in Love, and that true and divine state will blow away the misty vapor of the dream state when you choose to stop playing there. Initially you were very pleased with the illusory state that you had made. In fact, you were quite enchanted with it: it seemed so real, it was yours, and you were alone there, not needing God – it was very exciting! As time passed, your enthusiasm for this strange environment palled: you missed the blissful state of oneness with your Father, only you did not know what it was that you were missing because you were unable to access your memory of Him. It seemed that you were completely alone—and that terrified you.
But, as many have told you, separation from God is impossible! Within you all burns the inextinguishable Flame of His Love – your constant and eternal connection to Him. Your dissatisfaction with your worldly environment has intensified over the last one hundred years as you suffered wars and betrayals, and you long for acceptance, peace, and love. It is becoming increasingly apparent to the majority of you that problems and disagreements cannot be resolved by forceful conflict. You are starting to uncover the Flame of Love within and allowing It to guide you. The results of that allowing are inspiring you as you see how effective that loving guidance is. Yes, you still do not trust it completely because you continue to observe violence and betrayal within the illusion, but the more you allow yourselves to follow your divine guidance the more reliable and uplifting you will find it. You are realizing that you cannot change the illusion but that you can change yourselves – your attitudes, your beliefs, and your behavior – and that changes your perception, and you start to experience the ever-brightening Light of Love in yourselves and in others.
You are very firmly established on your path to awakening, so embrace the Love that burns within you and intend most intensely to perceive it everywhere. You know It is there, so respond to every situation in a loving way and experience that Love shared and returned to you. You are all calling out for Love – it is your natural divine state – so offer it to all, indiscriminately, and enjoy the peace and joy that your behavior brings you. And do not judge those who as yet cannot respond in like manner – be compassionate for their pain and their fear.
Your loving brother Jesus.
