Message from God: book 1/104
The point of life is not to get anywhere. It is to notice that you are, and have always been, already there. You are, always and forever, in the moment of pure creation. The point of life is therefore to create, who and what you are, and then to experience that.
I am not pleased by suffering, and whoever says I am does not know Me.
Suffering is an unnecessary aspect of the human experience. It is not only unnecessary, it is unwise, uncomfortable, and hazardous to your health.
Suffering has nothing to do with events, but with one’s reaction to them.
What’s happening is merely what’s happening. How you feel about it is another matter.
I have given you the tools with which to respond and react to events in a way which reduces, in fact, eliminates, pain, but you have not used them.
Events are occurrences in time and space which you produce out of choice, and I will never interfere with choices. To do so would be to obviate the very reason I created you.
Some events you produce willfully, and some events you draw to you, more or less unconsciously. Some events, major natural disasters are among those you toss into this category, are written off to “fate.”
Yet even “fate” can be an acronym for “from all thoughts everywhere.” In other words, the consciousness of the planet.
Thoughts put into action. If enough people everywhere believe something must be done to help the environment, you will save the Earth. But you must work fast. So much damage has already been done, for so long. This will take a major attitudinal shift.
I have made the laws of the physical universe clear enough for anyone to understand. There are laws of cause and effect which have been sufficiently outlined to your scientists, physicists, and through them, to your world leaders.
The saintly do “suffer in silence,” but that does not mean suffering is good. The students in the school of Mastery suffer in silence because they understand that suffering is not that of God, but rather a sure sign that there is still something to learn of the way of God, still something to remember.
The true Master does not suffer in silence at all, but only appears to be suffering without complaint. The reason that the true Master does not complain is that the true Master is not suffering, but simply experiencing a set of circumstances that you would call insufferable.
A practicing Master does not speak of suffering simply because a Master practicing clearly understands the power of the Word, and so chooses to simply not say a word about it.
We make real that to which we pay attention. The Master knows this. The Master places himself at choice with regard to that which she chooses to make real.
You have all done this from time to time. There is not a one among you who has not made a headache disappear, or a visit to the dentist less painful, through your decision about it.
A Master simply makes the same decision about larger things.
You cannot know, and become, that which you are, in the absence of that which you are not.
I have no judgement one way or the other. But you have all sorts of them, and I suggest that it is your judgements which keep you from joy, and your expectations which make you unhappy.
All of this put together is what causes you dis-ease, and therein begins your suffering.
Believe nothing I say. Simply live it. Experience it. Then live whatever other paradigm you want to construct. Afterward, look to your experience to find your truth.
One day, if you have a great deal of courage, you will experience a world where making love is considered better than making war. On that day will you rejoice.
