Indeed, come close to Me. Through Our closeness, you will know me as One Who blesses and comforts and sees, loves and loves well. I am Creator and Infinite Eternal Friend Who embraces you.
When you look at life and the world without Me nearby, what you look at may seem stark. Look with Me beside you, and you see warmer hues and softer edges. Life in the world tends to have rougher edges when you try to go it alone, catch as catch can, running on the surface, having no sense of ballast.
There is a tendency to feel that you are in the wilderness and you may experience the world no kinder than a caveman’s world, a question of survival in the face of anything that could happen, on the watch-out at every moment. Know that I am looking after you, and I looked after the lives of cavemen and I have always looked after you. No matter what the world looks like, there is sunshine and a sun that shines its light.
I am never absent. Let Me make that clear. In the darkest of dark nights, I am with you. What We are speaking of is your awareness. Awareness of Me is better than non-awareness of Me. Remember, it isn’t that I am casting for your votes and I want to be popular for My own gain. I am looking out for you and that you have ease in your life in the world.
Being close to Me or far away is something like the difference between sitting on a chair without a back or sitting on a chair with comfortable back support you can lean on. In both cases, you are sitting. One chair supports you more. You like to sit back and have that support.
Of course, metaphors go only so far. When it comes to Me, you don’t have to lean back on Me. You can get up and run and still know I am near and desiring the best for you. You can just know I’m there, here. And if you fall, I will catch you. Nothing matters, beloveds, but that We are, and I am accessible. I catch you even when you think I dropped you. There is no getting away from the fact that We are One, and where you are, I AM. And if what you may consider the worst thing — death takes you, I am with you and there is no bad ending to you. None, for you are with Me.
You don’t have to go to a store to buy Me. You don’t have to pay money for My Presence. You don’t have to wait in line. You don’t have to look a certain way and meet certain standards, clear or unclear. You don’t have to covet Me. You don’t have to be anything but what you are, for I love. There are no requirements to have Me. You don’t have to be a scholar and earn points. You don’t even have to be well-behaved. I see Truth, and I know what you are made of. There are no exceptions. You may not know, yet I know. After all, I am omnipresent and omniscient. I AM.
Here’s the thing: You have already earned Me, or, to be more accurate, you never had to earn Me. Maybe in your eyes, but not in Mine. All the measurements of the world are not Mine. I have no regard for them. They have no weight with Me. They mean nothing to Me. You mean everything to Me, right now, you do.
