You may well be turning a corner in your life, yet some turns take their own sweet time. Sometimes it may feel that you have been turning this corner for a long time, very long time. You may be feeling that you are driving an old car that hasn’t been able to quite make the hill. Sometimes you may feel you are in slow motion or caught on the edge of some kind of unseen precipice. Sometimes you feel futuristic, and that you are in no car at all, just sailing around a corner with nothing holding you as you make the turn as though you are totally on your own.
Of course, it is not true that you are on your own, for you always have Me with you. I am your steering mechanism. In all cases, I am with you, loving you, loving you more than you can absorb. That you feel alone is proof of something missing only in your perception, for I am always firmly in your presence. You may, just may, see Me as fearful rather than merciful.
Merciful is not really a right word for Me, for there is no decision for Me to make. I do not debate. I do not decide. What you call mercy is ever-present. For the word mercy, I substitute love. I declare the one-syllable word love. It is ever with Me.
I do not choose or unchoose mercy as though mercy were an option. There is no option. Love is not an option. Of course, I would choose love, yet I chose it from the beginning. Love in My book was never a choice. Love has always been a given. Love established itself before the beginning. The beginning itself was issued from love.
I will ask the question many of you do ask of yourself:
“Did I choose or was I chosen? Did love choose Me, or did I choose it, this love I arose from.”
In any case, I accepted love wholeheartedly and ever embrace it as Mine. Now that I think of it, I don’t suppose that love could ever have existed separately from Me at all, and, therefore, I was love always, and only love can I be, and only love exists in Heaven and in this whole wide world. I became Love Manifest, and love issued from Me like bubbles, and My children found themselves bewildered on Earth, wondering what they were doing here and how they got here, as if they had been turned out of Heaven when this is inconceivable. Impossible. A God of Love does not turn anyone out of Heaven.
And so you are making that long turn around the corner. When you complete this turn around the corner on Earth, you will realize where you are. After all this perceived time, you will take a deep breath greater than a sigh and know that there was no corner to turn, only your eyes to open in order to find yourself where you have always been in Heaven with Me right beside you.
Within your DNA lies what you call memory of all the good times We have had, and this is Heaven. Of course, there is no past to remember for timelessness exists, not time. Infinity exists, not time. Vitality exists. Oneness exists. Love exists. The Oneness of Love exists. Another way to say this is that I exist, I, God before you, God within you and outside you and, simply, everywhere.
This may seem like a bedtime story I tell you, yet this is the Truth of Creation I tell you. This is a true story. This is a love story. This is a factual account of Oneness of Love. It was never not told, yet, more than that, this story is enacted before you in this wide-open world, this world that you are opening with the silent vibrant key of your consciousness that already knows what the Truth is.
