Message from God: book 1/85
Your soul seeks to experience, to be, perfect love.
It is perfect love, and it knows this. Yet it wishes to do more than know it. It wishes to be it in its experience.
Of course you are seeking to be God! What else did you think you were up to?
Isn’t it interesting that you find nothing blasphemous about seeking to be like the devil, but seeking to be like God offends you…
You all are seeking to be like the devil. You’ve even created religions that tell you that you are born in sin, that you are sinners at birth, in order to convince yourselves of your own evil. Yet if I told you you are born of God, that you are pure Gods and Goddesses at birth, pure love, you would reject me.
All your life you have spent convincing yourself that you are bad. Not only that you are bad, but that the things you want are bad. Sex is bad, money is bad, joy is bad, power is bad, having a lot of bad, a lot of anything. Some of your religions have even got you believing that dancing is bad, music is bad, laughing is bad, loving is bad.
It’s okay, mind you. It’s the same destination in any event. It’s just that there’s a faster way, a shorter route, a quicker path.
Acceptance of Who and What You Are right now, and demonstrating that.
This is what Jesus did. It is the path of the Buddha, the way of the Krishna, the walk of every Master who has appeared on the planet. And every Master has likewise had the same message: What I am, you are. What I can do, you can do. These things, and more, shall you also do.
Yet you have not listened. You have chosen instead the far more difficult path of one who thinks he is the devil, one who imagines he is evil.
You say it is difficult to walk the path of Christ, to follow the teachings of the Buddha, to hold the light of Krishna, to be a Master. Yet I tell you this: it is far more difficult to deny Who You Are than to accept it.
You are goodness and mercy and compassion and understanding. You are peace and joy and light. You are forgiveness and patience, strength and courage, a helper in time of need, a comforter in time of sorrow, a healer in time of injury, a teacher in times of confusion. You are the deepest wisdom and the highest truth; the greatest peace and the grandest love, You are these things. And in moments of your life you have known yourself as these things.
Choose now to know yourself as these things always.
