Ultimately, What Matters?

God said:

What shall we talk about today? What have we been talking about? Does it matter? Does it matter the subject when We sit together and look into the mirror of Our eyes? What does matter, beloveds? When all is said and done, what does matter?

Life does matter. It matters a great deal. Life is a lot. Yet life in the world is not all that matters, not by a long shot. Ultimately, what matters is you and I. Life as you experience it in the world comes and goes. You and I remain. Ultimately, all there exists is you and I. Furthermore, not even you as separate from you exist. This is the meaning of dust unto dust.

There is another aspect, however. It might be said that nothing exists, nothing at all, no thing at all. On the other hand, nothingness contains all and is all. From one angle, all there is is nothingness. From another angle, it can be said that nothingness contains all. Within the seed is the whole tree.

Eternity exists, yet it doesn’t exist as lasting time, for Eternity outdistances time any day. And Infinity. What about Infinity? It neither begins or ends. It simply is.

Of course, this is the conundrum you live with. That’s just it. What is and what lasts cannot be put in place. They are beyond the earthbound myth of place, and they are beyond the earthbound myth of time. From the angle of Earth, this is really an unsolvable puzzle. How can nothing be called everything or anything at all? How can everything be no thing? This is like having a mountain with no height, or a stream with no water.

What kind of erratic thing is this to touch water, drink it, wash clothes with it, perspire with it, eyes tear with it, it rains from the sky, puddles or dried up where once a puddle was. What nonsense you may think it is for Me to say these touchables are imagination, and that which you cannot touch is Truth.

Yet why not? Why not?

In Our discussion, We can say that We have an elementary primer that can’t begin to say everything. It says a little. It cannot say everything.

Then We have a post-graduate text which gives more. And yet even this advanced text can’t say or show everything.

We can say that life in the world is like learning everything about the Ocean. No matter how much you can learn about the Ocean, what foundation is all you learn when you have not yet, at least this time around, touched the water, or tasted it, or swum in it? All the knowledge you have accumulated is like an encyclopedia. Always a bridesmaid, and never a bride.

When you step into the sea, what else do you need but the feel of the water and how it tastes? There is nothing to do but absorb it. All the knowledge in the world is nothing next to swimming in the water. Then there is nothing more to know. You need no explanation. You need no understanding. Yet you, even as you swim in the sea, may not get the whole picture.

When you step into the Light, you are in the Light. When you step into awareness of Eternity, you absorb all of it, even as Eternity isn’t an It. Infinity is yours and undeniable and all you could ever want when you have the blessing of awareness of Infinity. Then, what possible need is there for an explanation or definition?

When you know how to swim, you know how to swim, and you swim. All the directions in the world don’t tell you. Even being in the water is not the whole story. Even as you live in Eternity and Infinity, no matter how you try to fathom Eternity and Infinity, they elude you. Even the two are really One, aren’t they? Just two sides of the same coin.

Why? would an intelligent woman

Why would an intelligent woman such as you be intimidated by some of the people on your sites? You pay attention to some and not others? Did it occur to you that that is hurtful?

Dear dear Janis, I

Dear dear Janis, I definitely want to reply to your post!

I had read it and wanted to reply right away, and then I couldn't find your comment!

I posted under today's Heavenletter my general response to what I remembered as your comment. Here's the whole post I wrote:

There was a post this
On May 9th, 2013 Gloria Wen... says:

There was a post this morning that got lost. It is the last post I would want to have that happen to. There were 50 or more spam this morning that had to be deleted. I can only guess that somehow the post that is missing got deleted by mistake.

The post was from someone new, a lady, and to the best of my understanding she was saying this:

Didn't I, Gloria, realize that when I commented on someone's post and then didn't comment on someone else's post that this was hurtful to those whose comments had not been responded to?

I wanted to tell this dear person that I do understand this very well. In fact, when I taught school, I was very aware of this, and I did everything I knew to not praise one child and by default hurt the feelings of another.

To the dear person who posted this: I really hadn't been remembering this. I also don't know what I can do about it..

I have sometimes thought it is not my place to respond at all. On the other hand, I'm not exactly good at keeping my hands off. Like to this comment I lost, I am impelled to respond to the heart who wrote it. .

Here's my predicament. Time is very short. I could not respond to every comment if I wanted to. Please believe me that I have more Heaven stuff to do than one person can do. I have to be selective of what I put my time and energy on. I am learning that it is not my role to fill everyone's personal needs -- do you know what I mean?

God is the Teacher here in Heavenletters™. God keeps us together. It has to be so. The human being that I am is not meant to fill everyone's needs. I am not capable of it. No one is.

I am just as sensitive as this person who wrote in. I understand very well what she is feeling, and I know very well that we have to get past our sensitivity. We have to.

Why do I respond to one comment and not another? At the moment I read the posts, my heart is impelled to respond to one and not another. Certainly, no offense is meant. It's just something of the moment.

Please accept my apologies for losing your post. I think it was an important one.

I also want to say something more. We need a lot of help at Heavenletters, and so many beautiful people arise. We are so grateful. At the same time, there is plenty of work that Heaven Admin and I continue to carry without the help that could make all the difference in the world for Heavenletters.

The individual is very important, and that is my natural inclination. However, we have to put Heavenletters ahead of personal needs, mine and others'. The web site upgrade has been waiting for a long time. This isn't an ego need. This isn't for vanity. The upgrade will bring Heavenletters higher in rankings and, therefore, bring more readers to God's Words.

For every complaint, I wish we had a committed offer for help or a donation so that we could pay someone to help move Heavenletters forward..

God bless us all.

P.S. After I posted this under Thursday's (today's) Heavenletter, a dear Heavenreader pointed me to your post that wasn't lost after all.

Dear Janis, I am not aware of being intimidated by anyone who posts! To the best of my knowledge, there are some posts that activate me to respond -- like this one of yours!


Hi Gloria~ Sixth paragraph that starts "What kind of erratic thing . . .", first sentence at the point beginning " . . . it rain from the sky". That would be a simple fix were it not for the rest of the sentence where the meaning seems clear but it can't be read aloud as is. Without going into the complexities, if I had to put my copy editing hat on I would end the sentence with " . . . it rains from the sky into puddles or dries up where once a puddle was." Copy editing God makes me nervous.

Isn't it weird how life keeps on presenting the little things that need attention even while your world is being turned upside down, in your case literally. Bless your transition.

God bless you, dear Charles,

God bless you, dear Charles, and thank you for everything. Much appreciated. Maybe we're in transition all the time! Sometimes we're more aware of some transitions than others. If I understand, in your case, you'd like a transition to hurry up!

When you step into the

When you step into the Light, you are in the Light.

...in the Light and Love, you are sheer bliss.
