Perception and Faith
Your thinking is Mine, or it is past performance. You have repeated the history of yourself time and time again. Break out. I am not suggesting that you come from the opposite, for that is also imitation. I suggest that you come from a higher realm of being. It is not your actions that you have to think of changing. It is your perception or lack of perception that keeps you in the same mold.
Rely on Me, not past habits of seeing or nonseeing.
The truth is that you want to advance. But you keep turning your head behind you, so you find yourself going in awkward circles.
You go by your connection to Me, or you go by your connection to the world of men. Where would you like to put your money? Do you bet on the scurrying horse or on the Stalwart Runner? Do you bet on the dashing flurry or on the Quiet Arriver. There is no question really about Who surpasses the finish line, and yet you have doubt.
Your reliance is on Me, or it is on other things. Doesn't that give you pause for thought?
You rely on the train to get you places, and you forget the Energy that pulls it. You call on the puffing train, and forget about its Engineer. You are in such a hurry, that you get caught up in the glitter and the noise, and you forget about the real Mover. Much of the time.
Forget no longer.
There is a treasure you no longer want to keep buried.
There isn't much you have to do. You don't have to dredge it up. Indeed, you cannot. All you have to do is point and say, "There lies my treasure."
With your recognition, the treasure will rise, and you will see it. As your recognition rises, so do you rise higher and higher to realms of unsuspected happiness.
You fear that you will not make it to the Higher Realm, or, if you do rise, that you will disintegrate at the Heights of Happiness. But you mix up coming apart and coming together. Even though you know better, you half-think you are together now. Wait until you find what it is to stand tall with Me.
You think I am a substitute for something. You think I am in place of the real goods. Not that you think I am an imposter. No, you don't think that, but you think that I am a non- or lesser-dimension than the one you presently know. You say in words that I am higher, but you fear I am lesser. You rather think I am on call when your regular life isn't up to par. You fear I am a second best. You fear that the dimension you are most familiar with is really superior to what I offer. And yet I am the Offerer of All Dimensions.
Accept all the gifts I proffer. Why not? Why not accept all?
I am not a subterfuge. Your acceptance of your present awareness of life keeps Me hidden.
I suggest that you enjoy your present world more. Enjoy it more by not being attached to it. When you think the present mass world is all that there is, naturally you attach to it. You clutch it. You are not going to let go when you think there really isn't something more, or that that something more isn't available to you, and maybe not to anyone really. Maybe it is there, but out of reach, so you would rather deny it altogether than to reach out and find your hand empty.
Reach out your hand, and I will rush to fill it. Look up and reach out with your eyes and put your hand out. I am waiting to fill you with all kinds of treasure. I am the One Who is the Giver of treasure. You thought your worldly goods came from somewhere else. Like you, they also do not exist without My awareness and blessing. I am the One Who has given to you all along. Turn your awareness to the Fulfiller of you. I am the Filler of Hearts. None other. Put your faith where it lies.
