Forgive
All Things, Heal
All Wounds, And Be Free

  I AM with you. 

“Some will deny this, outright.  Some will ‘doubt this.’  Some will begin to believe, yet still question.  Some... will accept! 

“Still, I come: to those who do not believe, to those who doubt, to those who question, and to those who accept.  It is the same.  It is the same, because, the truth remains the same.  A cup of water is the same.  It will provide the same:  for those who think it is impure; to those who question the safety of drinking; to those who trust, and know, the water is good!  The perception lies, in the thoughts, in the mind, of the one, holding the cup.  

“See a cup before you.  See it filled with water.  See the water, catching the light of a new day, holding within the sight of the water, the promise to quench your thirst.  For the one who ‘knows,’ from whence the water was drawn, the decision to drink from the cup is easy.  ‘It came from the well of hope, I shall drink of it.’  ‘It came from the hand of God, and I shall drink, deeply, of it.’  ‘It came from the valley of promised fortune, and I shall drink of it.’  When you know from whence the water came, the taste is sweet, and true, and you are confident, in what you do.

“Doubt, hesitation, concern, anxiety and worry, these, energies are real, and they can be associated, with each of your encounters during a day.  Have you ever wondered why this is so? 

“Do you doubt, because someone spoke words to you, planting the ‘seeds of doubt,’ perhaps in your childhood?  Do hold concern, about the action of others, or your own in response; because, of a story, or a relationship, regarding something that happened years ago, perhaps even in another generation, perhaps even in another country?  Have you ever sat ~ to think ~ where these thoughts were created?  Have you ever thought, what your life would be like, with doubt, and worry and concern and anxiety stripped from you?  I can tell you.  It would be like a child, running across a meadow, still damp with the dew, of the evening, without concern, with great joy!

“There is an elixir: that will free you from doubt and worry and concern, from mistrust; that will free you from the teachings, and the dogmas of the past.  These things, that were ‘perceived,’ or ‘perpetrated,’ generations ago, live within you.  Just as your blood holds DNA, your body, holds the DNA of feelings!  It is, as if, you can put into perspective why a little boy, who never knew his great-uncle, speaks the same way, and has the same mannerisms.  This type of thing is passed from generation to generation; but so, are the seeds of doubt, and mistrust, and worry and concern and anxiety.  So, how do we get to a point where each one can pick-up the cup, and drink from it freely, knowing from whence it came, without doubt?  You begin ~ with ~ forgiveness!

“You ~ will find it necessary to forgive ~ the smallest slight, or the grandest fight, or the family stories told, about why ‘we’ do not like ‘them,’ what ‘they’ did to ‘us.’  If you search the corridors of your inner-being, using ‘the candle of truth,’ to illuminate your inner-walls, you will find the source of doubt, and worry, and concern, especially when it comes to your relationships, and how you greet and meet, and interact, with those you encounter during the day.

“When you are willing to forgive, do not let the act of forgiveness stop there.  Take more time.  Why is forgiveness necessary in the first place?  What happened?  You will begin to understand that the first forgiveness opens the door; then if you are willing, you step-over the threshold, and look for more; because every time you participate in the practice, and the act, of forgiveness, you are eliminating a seed of doubt, or mistrust, or worry, or concern.  When you are willing to sit for hours, in the process of forgiving, you are creating an environment in which these seeds whither; and, you are not the only beneficiary.  Your concentration on forgiveness: heals you, heals your family, heals all who are participating; and, I use the present ‘are participating,’ relating to the past, to past generations, where the seeds were picked-up, and planted, deep within the bodies, of those who were in conflict, or denial.

“Take some time this week to ponder ~ the cup of water, ~ the act of forgiveness, ~ the restoration of health, happiness, and joy!  Be at peace as you do this, and know, why you are doing it.  The act of forgiveness will heal all wounds.  Be at peace My brothers, and sisters, and go forth, forgiving all things!”

Freeing
Yourself
From Anger,
And Retaliation

  I AM with you.  I AM with you to encourage you: to work within the spiritual realm; to free yourself; to heal yourself; so that you might be whole, and glow, as you walk over the Earth!

“It might interest you to know, that a healthy body depends, on a healthy spirit!  A healthy body, depends, on a clean house!  Unless you have attained the position, of being ‘clean,’ of cleansing yourself to such a degree, that no matter what is said, or done, to you, or about others, there is no negative reaction, only the positive gift of blessing. 

“Do not smirk, or nod your head, and think that this is not possible.  You can achieve ‘perfection,’ in all you do; but this will come only after you have cleaned the inner-corridors, and hallways.  This will come, only after you have gone within, searching (for) the seeds of anger, and retaliation.

“When anger erupts, it is a force to be reckoned with.  The burn begins, and then it grows, sometimes in rapid succession, until it blows from the top, like a volcano.  If you have ever looked into the face of one who is becoming angry, you will see their face change, and contort; you will see it often become red; and you certainly will ‘feel,’ the explosion; for, when you are in close proximity, it is difficult to avoid the ash, the burning sensation, which is flowing down from the eruption. 

“It might surprise you to learn, that this type of anger, that comes from the source, and rumbles through the body, before it explodes, can be totally cleansed, stripped, cast-away; because anger, such as this, has a source.  For those who are willing to go in search of the source, of the anger, there is reward.  For those who are willing to go in search of the source, recognize it, and release it, there is peace.  It is worth the effort; and even ‘as you are doing the work,’ you will recognize that these eruptions, are less, and less frequent.  It is because the source is dormant.  Many stop at this point; but, I encourage you to keep going; because unless it is cast from you, there is always the possibility of an eruption.  The eruption is harmful to the body, and harmful to those around you. 

“Live, and do no harm!  Live in peace; and encourage others to do so.  Do not seek to use the tool of retaliation; for, it too has a source, and that source can be found, if you go seeking within.  It is not so much a mystery, or a secret, as it is a task, for those who are willing to make the journey, set the ego aside, see the source, know the source, bless the source, and release the source.  Even at that point there is great reward.  You feel it leaving, and it is as slipping into a bed, after a long day.  You are free.  It is complete, accomplished, and done.

“You have almost made the mark to half-way through this year, and this is what has prompted this talk about freeing yourself totally, and forever, of the destructive forces of anger, and retaliation.  There is ‘no righteous anger.’  There is no blessed retaliation.  From these energies comes disease, exhaustion, shadow, and darkness. 

“For any who are willing, I promise, I will go with you, I will make the trip within, with you; and, together, we will find the source, and know exactly what to do; and, in the end, you will be free, happy, and healthier than you have ever been before, because they will be cast from you, you will be free!”

Love,
Your Way
Back To The Garden

  I AM with you.  This is not merely a greeting, this is a statement of truth; and it can be your reality, if you find you are able ~ to accept ~ that I AM with you, and embrace this truth.  It might be difficult to comprehend totally, while you are existing temporarily, in a third dimensional world, seeing only glimpses of other dimensions, occasionally; however, I can assure you, it is true.  The more you can accept on faith, the closer you come to understanding The Dimension of Perfection; and, until you return, this is as close as it can be to you, until you have the faith to lift your eyes, and see beyond the veil, the promise of a new day! 

“There is great comfort, for most, in having a set of rules, or regulations, set into place: so that you know boundaries, so that you understand that there is only so far you should go with this, or say with that, or think quietly.  These types of rules, let you know where you stand, and what you are supposed to do, in a society, which intends to move smoothly, and without interruption; and the society can be a school, or a city, or a church, or a family, or a club; but, these rules, you need to accept, if you are going to live within the community, whatever it might be, without stepping out of line.  Well, the beauty, of The Dimension of Perfection, is there is no need for a rule, or a regulation.  When everything is operating in love, and light, and peace, individual beings, inhabiting this sacred space, move at a pace, that is almost still; yet there is movement, from place to place.  There is no need to jostle each other, or push, or shove.  The difference, between the dimensions, and how every individual being exists, is love!

“The Divine Plan ~ was ~ that there would be many who would accept the message of love, and thus actively carry-out the message of love, spreading this healing energy, wherever they went; and, in this way, and in this way only, they would be preparing The Garden to merge with The Heavens.  This was one of the first steps back to The Garden; or rather, it was intended to be.  For any who will look, and see, the energy of love, moving, there is almost an instant understanding.  Order, follows love; but, it is The Order of the heavenly dimension.

“The message of love, just did not take; therefore, the journey back to The Garden, is taking longer.  I tell you today, that the intention is ~ for Earth and Heaven to flow together, ~ as it is together!  You are in Heaven right now; but, you cannot move forward, enjoying the full citizenship, actively, of Heaven, until you accept, and embrace, the message of love.  When you live in love, you have glimpses of this dimension.  It is the pathway back.  It was My honor to bring the message of love; therefore, with the love of God, flowing, through Me, onto the Earth plane, I AM showing you ~ The Way ~ back, to The Garden.

“My brothers, and sisters, it is that simple!  While others around you might not see it, or even understand it, if you will incorporate this message, this first step, into your daily lives, you will begin to comprehend Heaven, to understand your Home, and to make your way through the veil, and into the light.  You cannot read your way back, you cannot study your way back, you cannot memorize your way back; but, you can love your way back.  That was the message then, and it remains the message today.  First, there is love!”

The
Way To
Attain Peace

  I AM with you.  I AM with you, celebrating, with great joy, eternity; and all the aspects of eternity, living forever.  What a journey it is, because, when you live eternally, the journey is complete, within you, every day, in every way; and, from one time to another, you move, with confidence, in the light, and the glory, of God, and All That Is.  I AM with you!   


“When you realize, living in eternity, there comes with it a peace, the presence of peace, because you know. 

“I wish to share with you, a lesson; so that you will grow, this week, in an understanding, of how to attain peace. 


“Spiritually, peace is attained through forgiveness, and love.  Spiritually, peace is attained by refusing to carry the burden of ill-feelings, and grudges of things that occurred in the past.  Spiritually, peace is attained, when you are willing to forgive, all things, when a name, or a situation, occurs to you, and you bless, with an eager heart.  You will not know peace, spiritually, until you forgive every grain of sand in the wound.  You will be healed, through forgiveness; therefore, that is The Way to attain peace, spiritually.  Set your ego aside, and forgive!


“The Way to attain peace, in the world created by man, is to take care of business, as it appears, every day.  Procrastination is the thief of peace.  You cannot be at peace, if there is a task, or a chore, looming over you.  The student cannot be at peace, when they know, an important paper is due, and they put it off, and put it off, until the night before; and, the paper, they could have written, well, turns into a hurried piece of something that ‘will do,’ and for months they have been in a place of worry, and concern.  Now, this is a good example.  When you know something needs tending to, when something needs your attention, do it.  This is how you attain peace, in your physical world, by doing what comes to you, daily.

“Do not let procrastination steal your peace.  Tend to business.  Take care of the daily events, and chores.  Once you have mastered this, and it does take diligence, you will be at peace.  You will not be worried about what needs to be done, or better said, what could have been done, days before. 

“When you are walking in a state of peace, physically and spiritually, you see the world differently!  You are not troubled, or worried, or concerned.  These two go hand-in-hand: tend to business in the world of man; and, tend to forgiveness, spiritually. 

“‘Forgiveness,’ is ‘a child of love.’  Spend this week: freeing yourselves of the burdens; forgiving, and tending to business; seeking peace in all states. 

“Peace is worthy of work, and sacrifice. 

“Seek peace, and you will, truly, find it!”

Go Forth
In Kindness


  I AM with you.  I AM with you as you begin this new day!  I AM with you to share, that which I know, to be true; so that you might use it; and in a better way, improve all that you do.  I AM with you, and watch each step.  I AM with you, and bless each step.  I AM with you to encourage you, as you find the path, as you make your way. 

“Many of you are struggling: with forgiveness; with forgiving all things; with the concept of judgment, and coming to understand how you see, and know, but do not judge.  Those of you, who are struggling with forgiveness, and judgment, hold worthy goals, and ideas, and desires; however, sometimes, no matter how hard you try, and how much strength you put into the project, it does not seem to work; and when it does work, it seems exhausting, because you put every effort into it; and you begin to wonder, when you will be able to do such things, with ease, and confidence.

“I have a suggestion, which I think will work; and, ultimately, work miraculously, for you.  For this coming week, set aside the struggles, with forgiveness and judgment, set your ego aside, and pick-up the banner of kindness.  For one week ~ forget everything else ~ except being kind!  When you are kind, you remain silent to others’ flaws and faults and mistakes.  When you are kind, you do not mention the errors of someone else’s ways.  You are merely kind; you are compassionate, and understanding. 

“This practice, in kindness, will lead you toward your goal, regarding forgiveness and judgment.  In most cases, what has happened is: you missed a step, you are a little off balance, you are not steady. therefore, it is difficult to walk in the ways of forgiveness, or run over the Earth, without judgment.  It is often necessary: to ‘back-up,’ to ‘take a second look,’ to ‘regain your stance,’ to ‘discard old habits,’ and then, move along The Way, restored, and more confident.  This week, of working in the fields of kindness, will do exactly that.  In fact, after one day, you will become more balanced, you will be steady, and confident, that you can be kind.  Even when someone pulls in front of you, when you are driving along the highway, be kind.  Let them go, and let it be.  When you arrive at your work place, in the morning, and one of your co-workers is in a bad mood, let it go, let it be.  Just be kind to all who surround thee, and in this way, you will be kind to yourself.  Be kind!

“So, the goal is set, for those who choose, to rise-up, and practice kindness: so that you might restore your balance; so that you might be steady in your gait; so that you might be confident in The Way, you have chosen. 

“I AM with you ~ let us go forth this week ~ in kindness!”

God’s
Will, & The
Eternal Symphony


  I AM with you.  Even when I AM near to you, some find it easier to turn away, to face the days, alone; yet, it is not necessary to face anything alone.  Reality is simple.  The world created by man oftentimes seems complex, and difficult to understand; yet, I reach-out My hand, and say simply, I AM with you!

“If you are hearing My words, or reading My words, today, you are upon Earth, you are on assignment, away from Home Base; and, those of us existing more completely in The Dimension of Perfection, are watching over you, sometimes guiding you, always seeing you, knowing your struggles, and your opportunities, seeing you shine with accomplishment and shimmer with joy, and sometimes, sitting in confusion.  Yet, I assure you, as you make your way through the great adventure on Earth, you are not alone!  In fact, the entire process has been ‘staged.’  There is a plan; it is often referred to as ‘The Divine Plan,’ and sometimes the words grouped together to describe this are ‘The Will of God.’  Today, I want to give a tender touch to the words, The Will of God; because I find that some of you, upon hearing the words The Will of God, take a bit of offensive; because you hear it so often, the image you construct is of mighty figure, demanding, that all of the children do exactly as God says for them do.  In total, this is an incorrect perception.  The Will of God ~ is ~ The Divine Plan.  So, I ask you from now on to think of it in this way. 

“There is a composer, and the composer is inspired by something around him, or her, ~ by the people around, by the events around, by the desires, energies, and flow, and feelings, ~ to create ~ a masterpiece of music.  And when it is done, there are those gathered to bring this creation to life, and each picks-up an instrument to play their piece.  There are cellos and violins and oboes and flutes and pianos and drums, all types of percussion instruments, and trumpets and horns; everyone willing to do their part, to bring the great symphony to life, for all to see, and live, and enjoy.  And when everyone is in place, and have practiced, and practiced, and can play their part with grace, and beauty, the conductor steps-out of the shadows, into the light, and is revealed, standing before those who are willing to bring the symphony to life.  There is a tap on the podium, and then, it begins.  The arms of the director move this way, and that, making sure, that all the pieces flow, as beautifully as they are meant to be, as they are meant to flow.  And when it is complete, and the last note resounds through the corridors of all that is there: the buildings, the Earth, the valleys, the oceans, the woods, the mountains, there is silence, awe, and wonder, because they have come together, creating The Symphony of Eternity. 

“This is how I want you to see ‘The Will of God,’ from now on, not as God demanding this or that, but bringing to life the great creation, inspired by All That Is; and knowing you are a vital piece of this symphony of eternity, of All That Is.  You join company with others who are willing to play their part.  Standing alone your part might be unique, and beautiful; but, when you join together, in company, with those who are willing to follow the score, there is so much more.  There is the ride up the chord, and the gentle slide down. 

“See your life, and all that is unfolding around you, as The Eternal Symphony.  See your brothers, and sisters, as members of the company, enlisted to play their part, to bring the symphony to life.  The tones, and the vibrations of all of the instruments will flow through The Corridors of All Time, playing, and repeating, and echoing The Symphony, that is yours!  No one is left-out!  Each one of you has an instrument, a purpose, a place; and, without your notes, in just the right space, The Symphony is not complete!”

You Can Do
Everything I Did;
Believe, Rise-up And Do


  I AM with you.  It is cause for celebration!  Your faith ~ is cause for celebration.  Your trust ~ is cause for celebration.  We can communicate, and we do; and this communication is cause for celebration!  There is much to celebrate: you are alive; and you will live for eternity; and eternal life ~ is cause ~ for celebration! 
“Many of you are familiar with the Bible, with the words, held within its pages, within The Book.  There is a place, where a statement I made is recorded.  Some of you might be familiar with it.  I AM not quoting exactly, I AM merely giving you something to reflect upon this week.  So, I ask you a question.  Do you believe that I did say, that you can do everything I AM doing, and even greater things? If you believe this to be true, then there is much for you to do! 

“You have the ability, within your being, to do as I did, to do as I do; and, you have the ability, to do even greater things.  But you must take ability, another step.  You must practice, what you are able to do, until you can do it, and do it, with confidence! 

“I did say the words, because the words are true! If you believe, then it is time for you to rise-up, and do.  You can do ~ everything I did while I was upon the Earth, ~ and you can do even greater things.  Believe, and do!”

The
Gift Of
Freewill,
Use It Wisely


  I AM with you.  It is a glorious thing, to be able to whisper, ‘I AM with you,’ and see, that you hear and know and feel My presence, with you.  It is something, more of a mystery that, unless it is revealed to you before, you will not understand until you walk through the door, and return Home.  Then, you will see and remember all things, and you will declare it, ‘wonderful!’  But for now, I come to you in spirit, and pray, that you embrace, and accept, that which I say unto you, because I AM whispering, speaking, reaching: to make The Way a bit easier; to sweep away the difficulties; to go before you, so that you do not stumble, or fall.  I will pick-up every rock and pebble ahead of you, and walk along side of you, and you will see, and know, so that you remember the experience of living, for a while, upon the Earth! 

“The wisdom of God has no end, it encompasses all things!  The wisdom of God rings-out, through all time.  In a small speck, resting within the wisdom of God, was the understanding, that the gift of freewill should be assigned to all given birth, to experience life; because, to experience life, even eternal life, would be dull, and sometimes laborious, when existing meant, doing exactly what you were told to do, no matter what. 

“Freewill is a gift.  It is a gift of respect, and you might want to pause, just a moment, to understand, the gift from God, to you, was given to you, out of respect for you, and all the things you could do… would do… and that would exist through you.  But to do it of your own freewill, would make it miraculous, would make it a gift worth giving back to the God of Creation, the creation of all things, including you.  When you stop to think about it, there is very little you can do, or give The God Creator of All Things.  In fact, the wisdom of God rings-out, with great joy, truly knowing that the only thing the children could bring, would be a gift, created out of the gift of respect, given unto them.  Therefore, you have the gift of freewill!   Ah, but what do you do with that gift.  Whatever you do with that gift, is the gift you give to God.  ‘Here, God.  This is what I did.’  There is no more perfect gift; but, in knowing this, and realizing this, there is one thing you must remember.  Enjoy your gift of freewill, and use it wisely; but, do not deny the others around you, the opportunity to use their freewill.  Do not strip them of the opportunity to create a gift for God, that comes directly from them.

“Ponder this thought this week.  Understand the importance of the gift, and do not attempt to interfere, and step between the gift given by God to another.  Take care of your own gift.  Rise-up today with the intention of using your gift of freewill to create a beautiful gift for God.  So, what will you do, what will you create?  Out of respect for you, God has given this to you.  Use it wisely.”

Take It
One Step
At A Time


  I AM with you.  Come with Me.  Let us walk in the garden, let us speak to each other, let us hear each other; but, let the speaking, and the hearing, be through our hearts, and souls, and spirits, where there is no wrong word, where there is no missed definition, or comprehension, or even understanding; because when you speak silently with your heart, the listening heart embraces the silent words. 


“In the sporting arena, there are teams playing, sometimes it is called baseball, or football, or hockey, or soccer; but, these teams competing have a goal; they want to be champion; but, to make the goal, you must begin the season, one game at a time.  And, when you achieve a winning season, you then move-on to the championship; and still, this championship is a series of steps, until at last it is complete, the goal is reached, the title claimed.

“It is also the same, in the world of academics.  You do not receive a Ph.D., by taking your first step.  It is a series of steps, as you pass through each grade, reaching new plateaus, gaining confidence as your go, until you see the goal within reach; and, because it is accomplished, one step at a time, it has depth and meaning, when you reach-out, and realize, ‘This degree is finally mine.’ 

“And along the way, whether it is a sporting event, or following the courses of the academic world, you very rarely make it through without making a mistake, without injury, without looking at a failing grade.  But those who reach their goal do not stop, do not quit, because of the injury, because of one failing grade.  Somewhere there is this determination, which rises-up, and calls you forward; and what you learn from the injury, or the failing grade, propels you to a new plateau.

“My brothers, and sisters, it is the same with your spiritual life!  Your spiritual life is your eternal life!  If you are breathing air, right now, upon the Earth, you are going to live for eternity.  There is no way around it, because you are an eternal spirit child of God.  The existence you know now, is but a piece of your eternal life, taking one step at a time, one experience at a time; and, all of it, flowing into, and through, you, accumulating in such a way, that you become an eternal being, with great wisdom, because of that which you know: through experience; through playing the game on the field; through injury; through walking through each classroom, and continuing progress, even when faced with a failing grade.  You know these things, not because someone told you, not because someone wrote it down and you read it; but, because you lived it. 

“I tell you all of this, so that you might put anxiety aside.  Set aside also, the feeling that you must do it all, right now, pack everything neatly, and tightly, into a little bag, because this is not the way it is done. All you have to do is take one step at a time.  And you can set the goal.  Do not make it lofty.  Do not try to climb the entire mountain in one day.  Pick a day for kindness, pick a day for charity, pick a day for compassion, pick a day for forgiveness; and, let that one step, be your intention for the day.  It will change the course of your life upon Earth, because it will have purpose, and each step will lead to something else, and something else, and something else, until you realize, you did it: you are wearing the ring of a champion; you are carrying a degree of one who ‘knows.’  My brothers, and sisters, it is not difficult.  I encourage you to be simple, and take one step at a time!  You have forever!”
