[HeavenLetters Board HeavenlettersT Comments] New E-Book Ava
You all must know that I am biased about Heavenletters! I am simply amazed at them every day. But I’ve got to tell you that Ebook 16 is worth its weight in gold for Paula Launonen’s foreword to the book alone. Paula translates Heavenletters into Italian. As you can imagine, the care that goes into translating Heavenletters has a great effect on the one who translates. I am so in awe of Paula’s foreword.
Okay, I’m going to reprint it here. Tell me if it isn’t one of the most beautiful things you have ever read:
When Gloria asked me to write the foreword for an e-book, the first quick thought that came into my mind was that I could not be up to it. But then I realized that it was not about me but about God and Heavenletters™, and I remembered God’s words:
“What you say and what you feel are meant to be the same.
There is not to be a dichotomy between your heart and your
words. Above all, you do not want to kid yourself.”
[Heaven #1818 Your Heart and Your Words]
I can’t remember exactly how I found Heavenletters, I think it was through another website during a period in my life when I was reading anything and everything I could find on God and spirituality. I used to sit at my computer passing from one link to another, trying to fill the longing I felt in my heart. Oh, there were many beautiful and profound messages, many complicated ones. I used to print them and use every free moment to study them. But nothing seemed to quench my thirst.
I was looking for something special, something called ‘love’, but not the conditional love of the world. I clicked on all the links containing this word. And I think this is how I found the ‘Love Letters from God’ and these words:
“It is yourself you have been searching for all
this time. I am yourSelf. God is the way to God.
There is no path to God but God Himself. That which
you seek you are, so intimate are We. What can
Oneness mean but that? Oneness is not two-ness.”
[Heaven #1571 Throughout Eternity]
I immediately felt the urge to translate Heavenletters into Italian, to make them available for as many people as possible. I wanted to share the profound truth of love I could feel in these short but significant letters. The truth of love I finally recognized:
“You recall that the word love as I use it is not prettified.
The love I speak of is a state of consciousness. The world
is seen through the consciousness of love, and the world
appears in a different cast. Oh, to see the world through
the eyes of love! Seen through the eyes of love, the world
forgives itself for its infractions against itself.”
[Heaven #1559 States of Consciousness]
I still continued to read many spiritual messages, until I got to a state of mind where all the words started to seem useless to me. But, as always, God was a step ahead of me and wrote:
“Word meanings fall short. Words are only a
representation. They hardly represent what they
really mean to describe. Even great words for
great things do not begin to express their greatness.
Definitions would imprison what is beyond imprisonment.
Even the word God is a small representation. What
word can possibly express the Vastness of the
Created and Uncreated? What words can begin to
describe you? …Yet words are not random ink spills.
And yet, your consciousness makes of them what you will.
Perhaps all of life is like an inkblot test. All of life
is what you make of it.”
[Heaven #1577 Pull Down the Vastness from Heaven]
Now I cannot read complicated spiritual messages. They just won’t ‘enter’. Heavenletters use the simple language of the heart and yet are full of knowledge and wisdom. There are some days when I read Heavenletters even without a faintest idea of what I am reading, but I know that the vibration of Love penetrates my heart and the words are stored for a future need.
Translating Heavenletters is different from reading them. I need to absorb the deep sense of every letter and understand the true meaning of every word in order to be able to convey the original message to Italian readers. While translating the first e-book, I realized that God does not stand still giving us always the same beautiful words. I saw that there is a subtle guiding thread. Through Heavenletters God keeps holding up a mirror in front of us, reflecting back our true selves. And as we keep looking into this mirror, step by step, He is bringing us ever closer to Him.
I still have my dark moments, but when I do, I know that God is always there. When I finally got to the point where I found the courage to make a personal question to God, I was literally trembling. But God knew even this: ”…no need to tremble,” He said, “I am the remover of trembling.”
Now I realize that I was actually afraid of revealing myself to God, or of seeing myself as I was. Through a series of personal questions, I have passed from the fear of an angry God to a communion with the real God, who is only LOVE.
Heavenletters is the vibration of Heaven on Earth, and ever more people are finding it. And I think God was talking about the people who are contributing to spreading Heaven on Earth when He said:
“Angels and saints walk on Earth. They are not famous,
or they may be famous but their angelness and saintliness
is mostly unknown. They are not recognized for who they are.
They simply keep going about their work for Me. They are
so in love with My Being that they can only do My Will.
To them, sweeping the street or being a movie star is
the same. They know full well that I am their Audience,
and their attention is on Me the same way that the Earth
revolves around the Sun, effortlessly, ceaselessly, and
endearingly. Their hearts are at My beck and call, and
this is their happiness.”
[Heaven #1553 Saints and Angels]
I sign this with all my heart,
