It May Take a Hero

God said:

Wherever you are and whoever may be with you, you are representatives of Me. Everyone you see in the super market, no matter how odd-looking, no matter what they buy, no matter the expression on their faces, they are agents from Heaven just as you are.

The one you may consider your worst enemy is also My agent. Therefore, there are no enemies. There are only representatives of Me, and I am no one's enemy.

Because someone steps on your toes does not make him an enemy.

Because someone overrides you does not make him an enemy.

No one is an enemy, no matter what he thinks, no matter what you think, no matter what the world says.

He or she may be misguided. You may be misguided. Surely you are. Surely, if you are irate, you have followed a false clue down an imaginary trail leading to a distorted view or even distorted action.

The one who has stolen from you, whatever it may be, needs something from you. He needs some recognition from you. He needs something he doesn't have, and that may be understanding. If you are feeling put upon, odds are he is feeling put upon. Who will end this vise that tightens you both? Who will end this battle for supremacy? Is that not what the battle is about -- who is going to win?

What is won, beloveds? Let the other win. He may need winning more than you. What exactly is it that you need when you have Me? Act in My place. What would you do? How ungiving could you be? You would be giving.

The person who offends you may not know that he is My agent. You know you are Mine. So be it. Swallow your pride. Swallow your sense of self-righteousness. What will happen? What crop will you be planting? What will you sow? Sow love. Sow some seeds of love. Rise higher. Rise above the throng.

No one can take away from you that which matters. It is you who takes it away from yourself. You want honor from this other, and here you are dishonoring yourself over a tuppence of pride. And if what he has stolen has great significance, still you are not to dishonor yourself which is the same as dishonoring Me. You are My agent, and you represent Me, not falsely, but truthfully.

I never said, "A tooth for a tooth." I never asked you to retaliate, even if you retaliate in your heart alone. When your heart is embroiled in a perceived wrong, find a way to make the situation come out right. You have to change the mechanics. You have to create a new path. You have to let go of the old. That is your choice. There is no other choice. If you want to disband hard feelings, you have to let hard feelings go.

When a gentleman is dancing with a woman and she steps on his toes, he says, "Excuse me." He does this because he is a gentleman. Is he less because he says, "Excuse me," or is he more? What has he lost, and what has he gained?

And what do you lose, and what do you gain when you are a lady or a gentleman? It is not dishonest to avoid or end a war. It is not weakening. It is strengthening. This is rising above a situation. This is dispelling a situation.

Anyone can build a fire. All it takes is a match. It may take a hero to put out a fire.

What a lovely way to put this idea - that I am your Agent from Heaven and so is anyone I see at the super market, or on the street. I still
get caught up in the duality of things.

I want to rise above this situation, and I'll make a better effort. Can I be a hero by putting out the fire in the hearts of other
Agents? I know you think I can.

Beloved Mary, please

Beloved Mary, please remember that we stay away from discussions of politics in this forum. We have to. Just as you do, others feel strongly about their candidate of choice.

Every day, Mary, you uplift our hearts with your openness to God and simply acceptance of all that He says. You are a lightbearer here. Discussion of politics does not take us higher. People are free and entitled to vote for the candidate of their choice whether it is our choice or not. No one is obligated to agree with us about anything.

Please do not have your dear heart hurt because your words about the election are removed.
No one wants to do that.

One more thing I would like to say. It is my understanding that it is not for us to put out the flame in anyone else's heart! We put out the flame in our own heart, and then the flame in another's can only go out.

Please keep posting every day. We need you here, dear Mary.

Swallow or rise?

"It may take a hero" to listen to You saying, at 9.00 am, that "no matter the expression on their faces, they are agents from Heaven just as you are."

"Rise above the throng", few simple magic words for me.

a better look

I have looked at their faces, dear One, there is nobody here and You do not need "agents" other than Yourself.

when you have Me

What exactly is it that you need when you have Me?

You are answering Your own (rhetorical) question, dear God. Fully having You, nothing is needed, need isn't even possible. To the extent there is need, there is not having You. Small need, smal not having You. Big need, big not having You. You may say that all of it is illusion anyway, and I will nod, suspecting myself that it is. But suspecting isn't knowing. Like nodding, it can be far from actual recognition.

So what I'm finding is that, right beneath my nods and my love for Your words, everything undesirable, everything turning life into a bitter and constant battle, survives happily and seems to be totally unaffected by Your words. What, then, I wonder, are Your words for?

This Heavenletter is an intense and timely provocation, questioning a very high percentage of what we take for granted in our everyday life, questioning the principle of tit for tat which we we follow in big and, oh, so small and innocent ways each and every day.

You are asking me to let them, whoever they are, get away with whatever I believe is mine. Your reasons are good ones, very good. They are convincing, You see me nod again, and yet deep down I find myself unchanged, unable to let go of this strange love for hate and of pleasurably imagined retaliation and punishment. You don't seem to understand this depth of resentment born of terror. That's why I ask what Your words are for, not really meaning it, of course, but still somewhat serious about it because I find myself even more confused and helpless with every new Heavenletter. Recognizing their Truth or some of it doesn't seem to help healing. Well, okay, it may still do so, perhaps starting with this Heavenletter.

What exactly is it that you

What exactly is it that you need when you have Me?
No one can take away from you that which matters.

much much love
