Rescue Yourself

God said:

When you are reacting, you are over-reacting. When you are upset, you have over-reacted. You made a situation something it wasn't really. There was a hint of something from the past, and you were reacting to the past and not the present. Therefore, you made a big thing of it. You blew it up out of proportion.

An emotional reaction is an emotional reaction. You do not find the past again except as you perceive it. The past was made up of your perception anyway. Beloveds, the past is made up of ego. Whether lovely or unlovely, it was made of ego.

That is what fairy tales are about. Ego. In the end, ego does not triumph. The stepmother is superseded. The princess marries the prince. The stepmother is full-flaming ego. The princess is goodness personified. The prince saves the princess, and virtue marries virtue. Goodbye, Stepmother Ego. Goodbye, Big Bad Wolf Ego.

And now say goodbye to Childhood Perception. The child was wronged or not edified enough. And now the child is grown and leaves childhood pursuits behind. Wrong is righted, for the child is grown now. Let not the witch bounce around within the child now grown, now considered grown. It is certain, however, that there is something for you to grow out of. Hurts are something to grow out of. Hurts are always from the past. I tell you this frankly.

When I say to get out of the past, I mean for you to get out of the past deeply. I am talking about the deep dark past. Do not repeat it. Whatever role you put yourself in back then, move out of it. Moving forward means to move forward. Psychologically stuck in the past is not moving forward. The past has not clung on to you. You have clung on to the past, and you have relived it again and again.

In order to live in the present, you have to get out of the past. There is no other way. Let not the past be a shroud that you cannot get out of. The past is not in your DNA unless you say so.

A pauper does not have to stay a pauper. Nor does a pauper of love have to stay a pauper of love. The whole story is about love. It is about love denied and the dream of love rising to be fulfilled. Whatever restitution you feel you are owed, it is you who owes love to yourself. It is you who has drawn those charcoal pictures of yourself in black and white. Color them in now, and be done. Adopt a new youth now. Step out of the past. Come out of the cave into the bright sunlight of today.

Come into the chambers of My heart. Enter with Me, and the past disappears, and the Eternity of the Present rises to the fore. Today is today. It is not yesterday. Do not turn it into yesterday. Step out of the past never to return. Orphan, stepchild, favored child, all that is to step out of. Whether you were loved enough or not, now you allow yourself to be love and nothing but love, love true, not love shammed. You do not wear the clothes of love. You rise to the occasion of love. Under all circumstances, you are no longer the judge. Throw off those dark robes. Now you are love true to the cause of love.

Remember love first. Remember love before ego. Ego takes a back seat. Anger, resentment are no longer for you to relive. They are for you to be done with. Rescue yourself.

Rescue yourself

As an infinite immortal spiritual being, not aligned with any religion or religious dogma, may I, on behalf of "the firm," simply echo the words of Heavenly, Infinite Father in sharing this perspective to all God's children. Cast out fear. That time is over. Let's celebrate the time Now as HE has decreed. Sing, dance, shout, for God's time on HIS planet is Now. Time to truly "Rise and shine HIS Infinite LOVE in you and in all, for Love is all that is!"

I have been living in love

I have been living in love.Whether large or small, I have been loved. I am the sun, always living in the sun.

in the present

The blessings of 20th century depth psychology came at a price. It taught us some sincerity which is good. It also taught us that the unconscious depths are difficult, time-consumimg and dangerous to navigate which is self-defeating. No one noticed it was ego's conclusion to ensure his own safety and survival. A simple "Boo!" that scared us stiff for a whole century. That's over now. Wow, it's over! No more victims.

It still hurts to hear that I am the only one to blame for making wrong choices when there was no awareness of making choices. The experience was not of making choices but of things being foisted on me. Oi oi. That too is over. One moment of now, out of time and mind an thought, and all of it is gone. Not without a fight but that's okay.

Timeless and thoughtless, nothing matters or ever did, how peculiar, how blissfully disorienting. Strange indeed: Nothing hurts when you are present. All hurt is from harking back.

"Get out of the past" and "move forward" – I never quite understood these suggestions. "In order to live in the present, you have to get out of the past." That's easy to see in an intellectual way, only it didn't seem to get me anywhere. Until it started happening the other way around, by grace you could say, I guess, by unexpected moments of thought-free nowness. What you notice in (well, after) such a moment is that nothing hurts. Hurt and Now are mutually exclusive.

It's comparatively easy to say what a moment out of time is not. It's harder to say what it is. It does not seem to have a name, it does not feel like having a name, but it's all right for starters to call it happiness or love. Sooo gooood is also quite fitting.

Thanks, Heavenletters, for priceless guidance.

What I am hearing

Jochen, it is always nice to read your comments. I agree with you about how hard it is to understand what “get out of the past” means. It is hard to know just how to do it. It is also a very difficult realization that we are our own cause for all we experience. It just doesn’t seem intuitive, does it? It is so much easier to see ourselves as victims. We are beginning to understand this even though the understanding is difficult. I have found a shortcut. Well I didn’t really find it. Many others have found it and they teach it, but I have seized on it as very important to me so I say I have found it. For me the key is self acceptance. I must somehow learn to accept and appreciate everything I have ever done as reasonable and understandable and give up the illusion that I understand the importance of any of it. This fits in nicely with the understanding that I am not a victim except of my own mistakes. I think we all always do our best in life in every moment. I think the mistake is to judge ourselves in retrospect and not appreciate the complexity of every moment. We are learning to be quick to cut others a lot of slack, but what about ourselves?

To me, this is what this letter is saying and what I hear you saying also. Perhaps for many of us, and definitely for me, the first hurdle to overcome is to fully appreciate and love myself and accept all I have done with my life and my choices. To the extent I can do this, I intuitively feel I can move onwards and accomplish even more useful things with my life. Lovely letter. Nice comment, my good friend.

Dear Chuck,

Yesterday I leafed through a book on how every kind of diet is right for some and wrong for others because of widely different metabolic types; and on how new ways of non-invasive screening can spare you all the failures or even aggravations many people experience before they find something that works for them.

And how wonderful that there is something for everyone.

So you say: "For me the key is self acceptance." I agree, doctor, I agree. And may this path take you there swiftly. But you see, although what you say is obviously right and we all have to get there eventually, for some it may not work as a direct approach. It does not for me. In fact, it drives me crazy. You will probably agree it is not something you can do with your will.

When you happen to be of the right "metabolic type", there will be a strong resonance, and off you dash. If you are not, there will be something else waiting for you. I have noticed that Heavenletters offer every conceivable kind of approach for every conceivable kind of "spiritual metabolism". That's why some of them speak to you strongly while others don't.

I'm finding I can most easily follow Heavenletters that gently take me by the hand and, without my noticing much of it, lead me out of everything known, out of words and concept, out of things to accomplish, out of being reasonable and into sudden unexpected silence. Patterning my statement of what is key on yours, I would have to say, "For me the key is stillness" (which, by the way, is one of very few places where you can't do anything wrong and where there is no must and should).

Of course, stillness and self-acceptance are the same in the end.

Yes, lovely letter, nice comment.

Refreshing HL

What a feeling of refreshing newness I sense from reading God's Words in this HL.
I picked this as most significant to me at this moment.

Whatever role you put yourself in back then, move out of it. Moving forward means to move forward. Psychologically stuck in the past is not moving forward.

This is the best advice I have ever heard!
Jochen I am amazed at your capacity of realization in the "NOW" What clarity!! It is comforting to visualize walking together on the same road and nodding my head in acknowledgement as I listen to what you are saying! I am grateful for you; you have put words to express the same as what I am feeling. And thank-you Chuck also, for I can totally relate to your comment.

To ALL sincere blessings,
Johanne
