God’s Child can have no cares

God’s Child can have no cares, and must remain forever in the peace of Heaven…

And so, would I pass this day with You. Your Child has not forgotten You. The peace You gave me still is in my mind, and it is there I choose to spend today.

The way is not hard, but it is very different

The way is not hard, but it is very different. Yours is the way of pain, of which God knows nothing. That way is hard indeed, and very lonely. Fear and grief are your guests, and they go with you and abide with you on the way. But the dark journey is not the way of God’s Son.

Walk in light and do not see the dark companions, for they are not fit companions for the Son of God, who was created of light and in light. The Great Light al ways surrounds you and shines out from you. How can you see the dark companions in a light such as this? If you see them, it is only because you are denying the light. But deny them instead, for the light is here and the way is clear.

You cannot enter God’s Presence with the dark companions beside you, but you also cannot enter alone

You cannot enter God’s Presence with the dark companions beside you, but you also cannot enter alone.

All your brothers must enter with you, for until you have accepted them you cannot enter.

For you cannot understand wholeness unless you are whole, and no part of the Son can be excluded if he would know the Wholeness of his Father.

Your place is only in eternity

Delay does not matter in eternity, but it is tragic in time. You’ve elected to be in time rather than eternity, and therefore believe you are in time…

You do not belong in time. Your place is only in eternity, where God Himself placed you forever.

The Kingdom of Heaven is you

It is hard to understand what “The Kingdom of Heaven is within you” really means. This is because it is not understandable to the ego, which interprets it as if something outside is inside, and this does not mean anything.

The word “within” is unnecessary. The Kingdom of Heaven is you.

What else but you did the Creator create and what else but you is His Kingdom?

Creation’s Gentleness is all I see

I have indeed misunderstood the world, because I had laid my sins on it and saw them looking back at me. How fierce they seemed! And how deceived was I to think that what I feared was in the world, instead of my mind alone.

Today I see the world in the celestial gentleness with which creation shines. There is no fear in it. Let no appearance of my sins obscure the light of Heaven shining in the world.

Forgiveness Ends All Suffering

Forgiveness paints a picture of a world where suffering is over, loss becomes impossible and anger makes no sense. Attack is gone, and madness has an end. What suffering is now conceivable? What loss can be sustained? The world becomes a place of joy, abundance, charity and endless giving. It is now so like to Heaven that it quickly is transformed into the light it reflects. And so the journey which the Child of God began has ended in the light from which it came.

Father, we would return our minds to You. We have betrayed them, held them in a vise of bitterness, and frightened them with thoughts of violence and death. Now would we rest again in You, as You created us.
