What God Says
You learn. You grow. You come closer to Me. And, yet, at the same time, you still hold on to the appearances of life and are so tied tightly to them.
Age, for instance. You believe in it wholeheartedly. You believe in age and aging more than you believe in Me. You see wrinkles, and you believe in wrinkles more than you believe in Me. You believe in weakness and frailty and gray hair more than you believe in Me. You believe in time more than you believe in Me. You believe more in what you see than what you don't see. You believe in fact more than you believe in Reality. You believe in wrinkle-removing creams more than you believe in Me.
You may believe in the color of skin more than you believe in Me. You may value the outer world more than anything else. Almost surely you do.
I ask you to allow for other possibilities.
In the world, stuntmen do death-defying acts. I would like you to do age-defying acts. I ask you not to swallow life-defying aging so fast. Do not gulp it down.
I ask you to question what is Reality and what is appearance. I ask you to question established physical reality.
I tell you there is no death, and you read and hear about death right and left. You believe obituaries more than you believe Me. Simply put, you believe in the physical obviousness much more faithfully than you believe in the spiritual reality. I understand this, of course. I am just saying what is.
Further, you may not even care about the spiritual. Spiritual Truth may come at the end of your list. It probably took you a long time before the concept of Truth with a capital T fell within your radar.
I do not tell you to give up the physical world, nor do I ask you to pretend anything. I do not ask you to go around spouting words about spiritual Truths when it is not your experience. I do ask you to take a little stock in what I say. Allow for the possibility that there is another Greater Reality that may not yet be at your fingertips, and yet it is within reach. Allow for the possibility that Full Reality may indeed already be within your reach because it is scored within your heart. All Truth lies within your heart. No matter how you may feel, no matter what your mind tells you, your heart stands firm with the Truth it contains, and it contains all Truth. Beloveds, I stand tall in your heart. Yes, your heart. Always. Even when you are not proud of your heart, I am there, so strong, so true, so faithful to you.
Do I get old, beloveds? Yes, I am aware that I may have always seemed aged to you. You may have thought I had white hair and a long white beard and that I stood on a mountain. I am ever young, beloveds. I span the Earth in one step. I dance a jig. I have the merriment of a child, and I never lose it. I always have it. I am innocent, beloveds. I am the most innocent of all. Even as I know all of Creation from beginning to end, I am innocent. I see clearly, beloveds. That is My innocence.
I tell you frankly that the same innocence prevails within you. And the same youth and the same agelessness prevail within you.
What is anything next to the Truth of Us?
