The
Command
"This is my command: Love
each other." . . . Jesus . . . John 15:17
The Promise
"If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching.
My Father will love him, and we will come to him
and make our home with him."  ... Jesus ... John 14:23
Holding these words in our hearts, we opened the door
to the every day Presence of Jesus, walking
with us ... teaching us ... The Way.
And, onto the mountain,
there came the words
...as promised...

Jesus:
That
Which
You Seek,
You Carry Within


    I AM with you.  Reach-out, and walk with Me.  Sit with Me, and let us rest, together.  While the world might be in chaos and confusion, while there might be a great upheaval, disturbing all you find familiar, here, together, we will find peace; and, we will sit in quiet, and a great knowing will fill you with promise, and you will find you are growing, in a garden, a garden of ‘knowing,’ who you are, and what you are to do.  

“If you find yourself caught-up in confusion, confusion moving into chaos sometimes, do not be ‘tempted,’ to be tossed and turned, going from this place to that, asking, ‘What am I to do?  Where am I to go?’  No.  Sit quietly, for in the silence, you will know; for it can be no other way, as the hand of God has written the directions to what the course of your lifetime will be, or is meant to be, upon Earth.  They are on your heart, they are in your soul. These directions, this guidance, is hidden from view, from those around you, so that only you will know, the right way to go, what to say; and the day you find the confidence to sit quietly, then rise-up, and go, as the map within you, does tell you so, your life will change upon the Earth.  You will be able to sail, over a sea of confusion, knowing your destiny, following the sun, and the moon, and the stars.  

“The world can present many distractions, some of them well-intended.  Family members, friends, institutions and organizations, will all seem to hold the answers, and will be ready to tell you, what they think you should do, when the reality is ~ the answer is inside of you; ~ and that which you are led to do, is not what others might be trying to tell you; but, for those who find that answer within, and, also unearth the determination, and the confidence, to begin, they continue their journey, just like they did begin, filled with enthusiasm for how each day might end!  Sometimes, the distraction is what you are supposed to have, or own, or wear, or eat, or drink, or what parties should be in your circle, who should be ignored, who should be distained, who should be loved, and who should remain: in your group, your contact, your community.  Listen to The Whisper, within you begin, and it will guide you safely to shore.

“Most of you confused, right now, about your course of action, only need to go back some years, to remember, to recall, that there was a time when you seemed to know, exactly what you were to do.  It is important not to get caught-up with what you were to do ten, or twelve, years ago; for the directions come, in steps, steps with a purpose, leading you, in such a way, that no matter what free-will choices are made, all around you, you will still end-up, where you are meant to end-up.  The Divine Plan is much like a river: flowing freely, constant, proceeding toward the destination of the sea, the oceans vast and majestic; flowing passed the banks, and through the cities, and out into the countryside, with determination, never stopping, or pausing the flow, but moving without distraction, as if the river knows exactly where it is to go; observing all that is going-on, on this bank, and that bank, in this city, and so on, but not distracted from its own destination.  See that river in you!  Enjoy all there is, as the view changes, day-by-day, week-by-week; but knowing your destination is to return Home, mission complete.

“The Divine Plan is not rigid, it is sweet.  It has a place for every majestic mountain, every mighty sea, every peaceful brook, and every blossom on the smallest flower.  Minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, they each unfold, and complete their destiny, because they too hold the secret, the guide, the map within.

“Today, be as the river, flowing sweetly, watching the view, but not distracted, moving ahead to complete your destiny; and then, come Home.”
