Feel what peace is like. You can have it now. Feel it, and you have it.
When you love, when you truly love from your heart as love loves, then you are at peace.
As you hear Me say that, you may sit up straight and say that isn't so, that you have much anxiety concerning love, that you have perhaps most of your anxiety concerning love in one form or another.
Hello, beloveds. How do you think you are today?
You may not know this, yet you are better than you have ever been. You may think you are in a slump, and yet I tell you that you are rising day by day. Your perception is often incorrect. This is because you listen to old programming. Because of old programming, My children have a tendency to think that they are lagging in life. There is a carrot you have put in front of you that you haven't caught up to, so you tend to see yourself falling behind.
Gloria to God:
Dear Father of All, I came across Matthew 6:7 in a Bible Crossword puzzle: "When ye pray, use not vain repetitions." It doesn't mean not to say repetitive prayers, does it?
It means not to just mouth the words but to be present with them, to repeat a prayer with your heart impulsing it.
If you pray without heart, it is like your hand giving a penny to one who asks while your eyes do not look upon the one you toss it to.
Everything is in motion. The gates are open. There is a flow to life. There is a flow to you and a flow to all of life. You do go down a stream of life. You might as well go merrily, merrily. And, yes, life on Earth is but a dream. It is one moment of a dream that continues. It seems to go on and on, your dream of the life you lead on the dimension called Earth.
How beautiful is a heart knowingly entwined with Mine! Your heart is already entwined with Mine, so you might as well know it. Is there something else you should know that has precedence over that? Is there something else that can elevate you anywhere near the height that that one realization can? Your heart and My heart are entwined. Our hearts hold hands, as it were. We are not separated even one quarter of an inch.
Don't worry about being rash, and don't worry about being plodding. You will come to the perfect balance. Sometimes you rush in, and sometimes you wait too long. You will catch up to life without rushing and without plodding. Life isn't something you have to catch up with. You just have to step in, the same way you step into a dance, or the way you jump rope, or the way you so welcomingly enter a pond on a hot summer day. It doesn't matter so much how you enter. It just matters that you enter.
Don't mind so much that thoughts flit in and out of your mind. That is their nature. They will be gone soon enough anyway, and others will fly in to take their place. You don't have to keep your train of thought.
Sometimes you think that your thoughts hold you and the universe together, but it is Being that holds the universe together. It is Being that holds everything together.
Your existence extends far beyond the dimensions of your body. Your existence extends far beyond the dimensions of the room you sit in, beyond the perimeters of your state, your country, your galaxies. Citizen of the World and Citizen of the Universe do not begin to express your vastness. We can say that you exist in many realms all at once. We could equally say you are realmless. We can say that you are spirit, soul, heart. We can say that you are existence itself. And yet you are beyond existence. You are Being.
The most you are guilty of is being in a physical body on Earth. If you were not in your body, you would make vaster choices. Your splendor would not be inhibited. Your glory would shine. But how can you be guilty of what is, no more nor less, than a short-term jaunt on the Planet Earth? How can you be guilty for having made a gallant choice, a privileged choice, to participate in life on Earth for a little while?
If you were not in a body, you would know the realm you live in. There would be no boundaries. All would be seen for what it is.
Every Human Being is unique. A Human Being is Oneness personified and personalized, Oneness made unique, Oneness with opinions and points of view perhaps unlike any other. And, still, even so, there is Oneness. There is the union of Oneness regardless of any opposing views. There is no one way. There are myriads of ways, and yet, still there is Oneness. This is hard to assimilate.
