You still have to choose ye this day whom ye shall serve, God or mammon. At those times when you place your reliance on already created things, on mammon, whether you realize it or not you have once more chosen to live objectively, which means by fear. The belief that externals such as the weather, your diet, or your bank account have power over you fuels fear. Fear is death’s choice, but when you choose to live by me, by the Christ of yourself – your higher consciousness - you are choosing life eternal. Use mammon but chose to be used only by the spirit within you. Examine your choices. You might as well choose me because I have already chosen you.
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your father... Mat. 5:48
To be perfect doesn't mean to be finished. This world is the garden in which you are being grown. When the process is complete, you will ascend and leave the garden. In the meantime, be a perfect human being. That means for you to be a growing, evolving, stretching human being. You are the One life, and when that same One life expressed itself as Jesus, his life was not always easy and painless for him, but it was always glorious, always creative, always loving, always trying, always giving, and always stretching towards ascension consciousness. Rejoice that now you still have further to stretch toward and more to overcome. That is part of your perfection.
I AM giving you permission to love yourself. Now you humanly give yourself permission to love yourself. Why is it so much easier for you to love me, the Christ within you than for you to love your personal self? I AM you. Let yourself completely love your whole self at this very moment no matter what problems you are facing. I, as Jesus, gave myself permission to love myself enough to keep from being tempted when Satan tried to trick me into doubting that I was a Son of God. Because I loved myself I was able to say, "Get thee behind me.” You do the same. You are the perfect child of God right now. So give yourself permission to love yourself right now. I AM.
Do you feel frustrated when you try to pray or to commune with me and you do not feel anything one way or the other, when you feel blank? At the times when you are experiencing joy it is easy to share your joy with me, because I AM that joy. When you are weighted down with a problem it is easy to turn to me because you want help. But when dry periods come, and everyone has them, don’t look for an earth shaking experience at that moment. Just envision my spirit as a tiny flame burning within you. The flame may be faint, but it is there. Like a tiny pilot light, it is waiting for you to ignite it. Acknowledge the flame and then fan it. Fan it until it becomes the light that I AM, the light of the world.
Love in both ways. Love is the quality of soul that I AM waiting for you to express in two ways. My first commandment is for you to love God, the impersonal presence in and as you and as all of life. That’s the Christ love. Heart love is my second commandment. It is personal. It is felt-love: the love I as Jesus expressed in my humanity. Love me spiritually, first as the Christ of yourself, and then humanly as your neighbor self. Feel my universal invisible presence, and then feel me personally as a physical presence within and as you. When you have experienced both kinds of love, your prayer is complete.
Conception has to take place before love can be born in the world. My presence has to be re-conceived by you every day. My presence is a feeling of or an awareness of the grace that is living your life. You may go to sleep at night at peace and then wake in the morning feeling cut off from yourself. You are not. I am always here waiting to be re-conceived as you and by you. For you to be aware of my presence, my presence has to be constantly re-experienced and reborn in you. That is not bad. You are not a helpless victim. Your life is in your own hands. You can re-conceive my presence any time you wish, and I will embrace you each day in my everlasting arms. This is our opportunity to conceive of and to give birth to love.
I, as Jesus, would not have said “first” if there were not a “second” for you to also seek or experience. The second part is that which takes place after you have first sought your divine presence. After you have first experienced your inner being all things will be added unto you secondarily. Do not reverse the order by first bringing a problem or fear into your mind. First, seek me, your impersonal divine consciousness. First, open your heart by contemplating my presence. Then, after that, your spirit will flow through your heart into your everyday personal world. First, pray, and then do. Hear my word and then see it becoming flesh. I AM.
Open your heart. Be not afraid to be vulnerable. You can only receive me if you are open. Faith is the key that opens your heart. You have heard of the sacred heart of Jesus. That sacred heart is any heart that does not fear being vulnerable, for to be vulnerable is to be willing to be empty and naked. To die daily is to empty yourself each day of the self-centeredness with which you have clothed yourself by your believing that you have personal problems to solve. To be spiritually naked is to love unconditionally until your heart is wide open. When you do that your vulnerable open heart and my all consuming open spirit flow together as One.
Feel my presence, the presence of your divine consciousness, and then proceed, not only regardless of appearances, but also despite possible consequences. As long as you are in tune with my Spirit, you do not need to justify yourself to any person or group or to fear what may happen in any situation. You are never dealing with what seems to be taking place outside of yourself but rather with how you view it. Trust the process, and when I, the Christ, AM in your conscious awareness the walls of negative thought fall of their own weight. Just be with me, the Christ of your own being, now and go forward with a smile on your face.
Do you still have a lingering belief that some things are spiritual and others are material? They are not. Everything is both. Worrying about your problems does not lead to a spiritual solution, but neither does turning your back on them. Act, but act with Spirit and the calm assurance that I AM guiding you. Do what ever you feel like doing and I will stop you if it is not right for you. When I appeared as Jesus I was not always talking or thinking about God. Most of the time I was busy thinking about what I had to do as a carpenter and working with my hands, However, being in the world but not of it, I was always simultaneously the Christ, no matter what I did - and so are you. Be not afraid. It is I.
As long as anxiety remains, forgiving is necessary. Forgiving always pertains to conditions. To forgive, you must release conditions. Let them go. As long as there are conditions that you consider to be either good or bad, you have not completely let go. To forgive conditions you have to love them un-conditionally. Deal with conditions, but do it without feeling that they represent a power apart from God. While you are at it, forgive yourself by unconditionally letting go of every anxiety and every fear you may have. How? By remembering that I AM your higher consciousness guiding you, and in my presence there are no conditions that need forgiving.
Since our time together yesterday, you have been out in the world dealing with material existence and perhaps taking on some of the psychic grime that personal sense can impose. Now, once more, I ask you to let go and throw your concerns and difficulties in your mental trashcan. Let them go. Consciously shift gears until you experience the positive flow of the freedom and the joy of my I AM presence. Open your heart. See your heart opening like a flower. Actually see it. Feel your love flow forth leaving all problems behind. Feel yourself clean, clear, and once more free of conditions, for that is your natural state - your Christ self.
From which end of the telescope are you looking at life today? From one end, you see appearances -- your individual problems. From the other end, you can look at life from the prospective of your Godly higher consciousness, which I AM. Problems can help you in that by your becoming aware of them, they remind you to turn the telescope around and begin to look at the truth behind appearances - at the source of life. I once said, "When you see me, you see my Father." Look at life from the viewpoint of your higher consciousness and follow it with divinely inspired actions. Then you will see the mystery of how God works in the world.
If you are feeling any trace of anger, anxiety, or fear, it signals a lack of self-respect. The word, “respect” comes from a Latin word meaning to look back to the source. When you confront your problems as though they represent a power apart from God, you are not respecting yourself; you are not looking back to the source within you. Your anxiety shows that your self-love is being replaced by a false sense of personal responsibility. So re-establish your self-respect by looking back to me, the Christ of your own being. Give me the responsibility, and I will take care of anything that might be bothering you. I AM your way. I AM your truth. I AM your life. I AM you. Respect me.
“God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son.” John 3:16
God, your higher consciousness, gave you yourself. When you realize that it is your own divine consciousness that does the giving you will know where to turn to for help when you need something. Your divine mind, the Christ, your only begotten son, will give your earthly self everything it needs for its fulfillment. As Jesus, I lived out of my begotten son consciousness. When you think of me, the Christ of yourself, as your only begotten self remember that my presence represents God’s gift to you of love. Fulfill yourself as God’s begotten son by giving love to the world. You are God’s gift to the universe.
Waiting on the Lord does not have anything to do with time, and it does not mean passive resignation. Waiting on the Lord means for you to actively serve the Lord, just as you would if you were a waiter in a restaurant waiting on tables. Waiting on me does not mean waiting for me, your inner Self, to do something. It means for you to actively serve your inner Spirit right now. Feel the spirit of love as your presence, and then serve it with quietness and confidence. Waiting is action. Waiting is the act of loving, of giving, and of actively being your Christ self until the divine plan in your life is revealed. Wait on me, and wait with me in your heart. That is where I AM.
Listen to your higher consciousness and you will not want for anything. I have made you to lie down in green pastures. I AM leading you beside still waters. I AM restoring your soul. I AM leading you in the paths of righteousness for my name’s sake. Lo though you walk through the shadows of the valley of death, you shall not fear any evil because I AM present as you. My rod and my staff, they will comfort you. I prepare a table for you in the presence of your fears. I anoint your mind with the oil of my Spirit. Your cup will run over. Surely goodness and mercy will now follow you all the rest of the days of your life. I, the Christ of you, have spoken.
Buy the pearl. Sell all you have for the pearl of great price. The price I ask, and it is a big one, is that you release all your old concepts and expectations. Give up your fears in exchange for experiencing my presence. Do not come to me expecting something for nothing. You cannot expect to receive the pearl of great price, which is a conscious awareness of your divine self, if you bank on, hoard, or hang on to your frustrations, annoyances, or animosities. Make up your mind. Do you want the pearl? Then cash in your anxieties, your self-interest, and your insecurities. With that coin you can buy my presence – heaven consciousness.
My home is a great full heart.
That is where I live. That is where you will find me. When you go there you
will find your divine Self. When you feel gratitude that lifts the veil and
reveals love as the only cause. I AM grateful for your being. When you, too,
are grateful for your being, your unique and wonderful self, then you are at
home with me, your higher consciousness. When you love your self, you are loving
me. The only way to love yourself is to know that you are now all that God is.
When you are consciously grateful for being who you are just as you are, you
are the presence of love.
Somewhere, somehow, you still feel that you have left something undone or have possibly done something wrong; otherwise you would be feeling my joy. Resist trying to figure out exactly why you are not completely at peace. If you are anxious perhaps it is because you feel that you are not being spiritual enough.. That’s a trick. Guilt is the ego’s way of keeping you under its control. To get rid of the ego’s trick: first, affirm your intent -- to be in the world as my presence. Second, remember that I AM the only power. Third, in quietness and confidence, remember that you are all that I AM at this very moment. Fourth, wait until the peace descends, know it is done, and rejoice.
My Christ message says that you will always be given another chance, another opportunity to overcome your shortcomings and concerns. That is the gift I AM bringing to this moment. You can start again, be born anew this minute. Just let go of all past time, even an hour ago. Take hold of my hand once more. Hold it as if for the first time. Literally feel my hand in yours and you will become spotless this instant. All debts are paid. Let the whole you, you human self and your higher consciousness, together create the rest of this wonderful day. When the gap between your humanity and your divinity is closed you will be spiritual evolution’s gift to life - the new divine/human being.
Once more, shuck off old habits. You have experienced your Christ being, and with it you have dedicated yourself to living by grace. Now keep from slipping back into the old habit of thinking that you are personally responsible for your life. To live free of old habits is to know that you live by grace, not old self-imposed laws. Punch the delete key. Clear the screen. Live in the now. Now you can experience the presence of your higher being whenever you want. Renew the realization that the grace that I AM is living you now, and now love is the only law in your life.
When I, as Jesus, said that I went unto my Father, I was not talking about a physical journey. I was talking about visiting my own creative I AM state of consciousness. I was talking about consciously entering the heart of my own spiritual awareness. Remember, I was called Jesus until I attained Christ consciousness. After that, I, as Jesus, spent most of my time in my father consciousness, my Christ awareness, and because of that people then called me Jesus the Christ. You, too, can live in that same Christ awareness. Go unto your divine father consciousness and give birth to the Spirit. Leave all sense of separation behind. Stop what you are doing right now. Close your eyes, and let yourself experience Christ awareness this instant.
Ask what you will in my name. When you truly ask in my name, you are not asking for any particular thing as such, but, rather, you are asking out of the I AM Spirit that is your true nature. It will fulfill all your needs no matter what they are or whether you are aware of them or not. Remember I told you to take no thought for tomorrow, for the things that you feel you need, such as money, a job, a partner, or a healing. Ask yourself to remember that you are the spirit of abundance, of success, and of peace knowing that you already have them. Ask for anything that is of the spirit and I will grant it. Seek not effects. Do not outline, outpour from that infinite source within you.
My answers do not come only in spiritual words and thoughts. I, your higher consciousness, appear at the level of your need in the language of your need. Look for me in suggestions that suddenly occur to you; in solutions to problems that appear when you least expect them, in thoughts that show you how you can correct your mistakes, how you can better perform your purpose at the human level. Stop looking for me to come only as spiritual revelations, and you will find that I AM “in” and “as” everything. You do not have to tell me your problems or to tell me anything. I am aware of your need simply because you have turned to me, your divine/human presence. I will answer in ways you cannot imagine.
You seek a haven in the rough seas of your human experience, but do not seek your haven in material appearances. My Kingdom is your conscious awareness of an invisible state of grace. When you are tempted to seek a haven from your problems seek me, your higher consciousness, because I represent a state of peace, security, poise, freedom, and overcoming. These are your invisible soul qualities. Lean on me, the invisible of yourself. You are so close. Take the final step into Heaven. Hold my invisible hand. Trust yourself. Let go of a dependence on material or earthly support and you will find yourself in Heaven. You can, you must. Freedom is who you are.
Your cry for help is as natural as a baby's cry for food and succor. But when the child has grown up into an awareness and spiritual maturity, it knows that it is its father's good pleasure to give it all that it needs, and the baby's cry is replaced by trust. The baby is always within us even after we have matured. Love it tenderly, but love it with the compassion of a parent. Answer your inner baby’s cry by turning to me, your Father consciousness that I AM, and make your request without fear. Seek only my presence and assurance is yours. Whether you know it or not, your divine self is hearing your cry.
When I was Jesus three times I asked Peter, "Do you love me?" Each time he said that he did with his words, but he didn’t give me the answer I was looking for, so I finally said, “Then feed my sheep.” Your Christ self, that which I AM, has answered your personal problems. Now it is time for you to share the love you are by feeding your sheep. Feed them with the Christ love, the I AM presence within you, the same love that feeds you as a human being. You are God’s spoon. Fill yourself with love and offer it to all you see - not with words but with heart. Feed your sheep and your love will return to you ten fold.
No regrets. Any tiny remaining regret will show that you have not fully forgiven yourself. To forgive is to release. Regrets are signals telling you that you have not released the past. If you do not erase regrets you will chase away self-love. Take this time with me to spot any remaining regrets so that you can then let them go. See what they have to tell you and then release them knowing that God is the only power; therefore there is nothing left to regret. Rejoice in the freedom I AM offering you by letting go of all regrets.
If you want to pray, first be reconciled with your self. Then come, offer your gift. The most valuable gift you have to offer to yourself is your love of Self. When you reconcile your humanity with the I AM of yourself you are creating the gift. So stop thinking of love for a moment and realize that to reconcile the human and the divine you must release both of them from all judgment, bad or good. It doesn’t make any difference if what you have to release is a person, a job, an illness, a situation, a problem that troubles you, or even a thought. Impersonalise and release what ever it is. Then you can come to the altar of self-love with the gift of your Self.
I, your intuition, AM not talking about the end of the fifth month of the year when I say that it is time for you to reach the end of “may.” Heaven is a state of non-dual consciousness where you no longer think in terms of “may it happen” but rather you realize that it is happening now. The word “may” most often precedes a plea for something to happen that is not happening now. It reveals a lingering belief that there is a power or a God apart from your own self that you must call on. So, instead of saying, “Let there be peace on earth,” know that peace is now on earth and it has begun with you. Instead of “Let the light of God shine on earth, know that it is shining - and you are it now.
