With John Smallman’s permission and inspired by a TV program I watched as a child (Walter Conkrite, You Are There), I’ve constructed a series of imaginary interviews with Jesus, a project I hope to continue with other Lights from the Company of Heaven. All quotes are from his site at http://johnsmallman2.wordpress.com.
Thanks to John for such clear and full channelings.
Interviewer: Jesus, thank you for allowing us to speak with you this day. My first question is: why does love seem so special to us?
Jesus: Love is your nature, and at the depths of your Essence. (1) Love is joyful, accepting, enthusiastic, comforting, and inspiring, as divinely intended. (2)
When you experience Love you find that it is irresistible, and that is what the vast majority of humanity has been seeking for eons. (3)
You cannot live without Love. It is the life force, the limitless field of infinite divine energy in which All That Is has Its eternal and utterly fulfilling existence. You are alive and therefore held closely in the warm embrace of the field of Love which supports you totally and provides abundantly for all your needs without you having to, as it were, lift a finger. (4)
I: What are our choices around love?
J: Consciousness in all its many forms – individual, family, group, collective, planetary, galactic, multiverse – has only two options: either turn towards it, accept that loving embrace and delight in the warmth, acceptance, and wonder that that entails: or turn away in denial of Reality and pretend that it does not exist. For eons, many on Earth have been doing the latter, but to deny something does not and cannot make it cease to be. (5)
I: Can you describe love as an energy field?
J: Love is the most powerful field of energy that exists. It is the only energy field that exists. Any other energy that you can conceive of or experience is of the illusion, and is an enormously diluted and weakened form of Love, which allowed you to think that you had power without the Presence of your Father.
Love is the life force; you cannot live without It. You are, every one of you, essential parts or aspects of It. However, when you constructed the illusion you attempted to exclude It, by apparently separating yourselves, shutting yourselves off from God. That is not possible, but you were and are free to pretend that it is, and that is what causes you so much pain and suffering. (6)
We are one Consciousness, God (our Source), all those in the spiritual realms, and all those in physical form throughout all physical Universes. Love and all Its many aspects are conscious energy waves in infinite abundance flowing freely throughout creation, and anything not in alignment with Love is completely illusory. (7)
I: It must be pretty powerful then.
J: I cannot emphasize strongly enough the immense power of Love. There is nothing stronger; it is as simple as that. Large numbers of you have, at various times, “fallen in love,” and when this has happened to you you have been overwhelmed with joy and happiness, and with the way it seems to empower you. You feel not only that nothing is impossible but also very intensely that the love you are feeling must be visible to everyone with whom you come in contact. What you experience as embodied humans when that occurs is but the most infinitesimal sense of what actually awaits you when you awaken into Reality and into the Love in which your Father embraces you eternally.
Love, as you have been frequently informed, is the power, the energy, and the intelligence of creation itself. Everything that exists was created in Love, by Love for the infinite pleasure that it would then enjoy, basking in and forever savoring the divine embrace in which all is encompassed.
So, when you want to achieve something, when you intend to achieve something, the way to do so is to engage with Love. You are all children of Love; Love is your eternal nature, and it is by engaging with It that all that you could possibly desire not only becomes possible, but actually occurs. (8)
I: What is the impact of fear on love?
J: Fear is intensely restrictive. Love is infinitely inclusive. The two cannot co-exist, you have to choose between them, and only Love is Real! So, truly there is no choice, just the requirement that you open your hearts to release your belief in fear, to let it go and refuse to acknowledge it.
When you do so Love will flood in, filling the space that fear had occupied, had fenced in, so that your heart center will expand, and you will feel Love and see It and recognize It everywhere.
Love is your nature, your Source. It is all that exists. And by shutting yourselves off from It you have caused yourselves immense pain and suffering throughout the eons. Having had enough of this insane way of experiencing life you made the collective decision to awaken, and collectively you most definitely are stirring in your deep slumber, moving positively and inexorably towards the moment of your awakening.
It is your hearts which are stirring, because in truth you are all Heart, and it is your hearts that have been so closed off and restricted by the illusion. It is as though you had confined yourselves fearfully within a minute dwelling with no windows and only a tiny bolted door through which you could enter or leave, while outside, waiting for you to emerge so that He could embrace and caress you, your Father was watching over you and keeping you eternally safe and secure. To awaken is to unbolt that door and emerge into the brilliant Light of eternal day! (9)
I: Can love be destroyed?
J: It cannot be destroyed, defeated, weakened or avoided because all is contained within It. (10) Love … is indestructible and infinitely persistent, and all will succumb to Its gentle and loving embrace which is constantly reaching up to you from the inner depths of your being. (11)
It does not impose or demand, but within the illusion you can pretend that It does not exist, and by doing so you shut out joy and happiness from your lives, replacing them with fear and anxiety which you either deny, attempt to conceal, or cower away from like helpless victims of some hideous monster.
However, Love is endlessly patient, It will wait until you choose, as you eventually will, to accept It, whereupon boundless joy will be eternally yours. That, surely, is reason enough to give thanks? (12)
I: I imagine I’m a hard case but I fear I’ll fail to experience love or, if I do, I’ll experience very little of it. I worry that I may never succeed in becoming one with God.
J: There is no such thing as “failure.” It is just another aspect of the illusion that you use to beat yourself up – or others! Just let it go, like all other forms of judgment which serve only to distract you from being yourself — namely Love.
That is what you are; you have just forgotten and have come to believe that you need to receive It, when in fact you always have It in abundance. If you do not experience It, that is because you have chosen to judge yourselves as being without It, in need of It, and by making that judgment you have effectively chosen to block It out, believing yourselves unworthy of It. And so you seek It, frequently in ways that cannot possibly help you to find It.
How could you possibly be unworthy of the substance of your being? You were created in Love, by Love, from Love – there is nothing else – which is just another word that signifies God, the Source of all that exists, and of which every sentient being is an essential and inseparable part. Separation from that Source is inconceivable, unachievable, utterly impossible.
You are constantly and eternally one with God, period. No further discussion of this divine truth has any meaning. You are all eternally loved and cherished by your heavenly Father, and nothing can change that, ever. (13)
