Enjoined to God's Heart

God said:

Everything you do in life is an attempt at joining. You are trying to unite to something. Even when you flee to a desert island, you are seeking a unity with life. You are seeking to join forces with yourself.

When you take a job and when you quit a job, you are trying to become part of something. It is belonging. You want to belong somewhere. Or refuse to stay where you no longer belong, if you ever did.

What classroom was ever big enough for you?

What glasses ever fit your eyes?

What shoes could keep up with you?

Where is your landing place?

Where do you sit down and breathe a huge sigh of relief?

You keep looking. You keep trying things on.

The only place you truly belong is with Me.

That's not so bad, is it?

Nowhere else is quite the Home I provide. No place else quite fits so well.

Many of you did not even belong with your families. Perhaps not to the town where you were born. Perhaps not to your country. Perhaps not to the time you found yourself in. And yet, somehow, it was just right, but you had other thoughts.

Some of you may belong more to another time, in the past or in the future. Some of you are situated in a past culture, and some are visionaries of the future because you have been there. There is no median point where you are fully at home on Earth. Earth cannot really fit the size of you.

And yet you keep wandering, looking for the right place to alight.

I will tell you a secret: Your fulfillment is not a question of where your body is, nor what bricks and mortar protect you from the rain and sun, nor what people surround you, nor where you sit or whether you sit or stand. There is nothing in the world or the minds of men that can accommodate your worthiness or diminish it or enhance it. Your worthiness has its own quarters. Its name is Heaven. That is what you have been looking for, and this is where you have been, only your recognition has been dimmed by the sights and sounds around you. There has been so much to look at and too much noise for you to hear.

What you are trying to join is a league of hearts, a league of souls, a league of brotherhood that reaches to Heaven. You are on high, and you want to reach there. You see an oasis ahead of you that is merely a mirror image of where you are.

All the while that you are on a mountaintop, you look down and around and forget where you are.

You belong everywhere and nowhere.

You belong to belonging.

You long to belong.

And you belong with Me. That is the long and the short of it.

Your longing longs to be filled. Your longing is not vaporous. It is a solid longing for the truth about you. And the Truth of you is the Truth of Me. There is One Truth, and it is Ours.

You belong in My vision and My heart. I long for you who longs for Me. Fill My longing, and you are fulfilled. Keep climbing to Me. Keep setting your sights on Me, for that is how you recognize where you have already climbed. You are wending your way to My heart and your acceptance of My bounty as yours when all the time it was. All the time it was. Always you have been here with Me, joined to My heart joined to all others. You are enjoined in My being. So be it.

Your sweetness, God, is getting ... it is getting ... well, You have used the word "excruciating" somewhere else. That's what it is.
