It’s scary, but when I, as Jesus, told my disciples that if I would go not away the comforter would not come to them, the “I” I was talking about was not myself but personal sense, the egotistical I. If you cannot let go of personal problems, personal health concerns, and personal anxiety the comforter can’t come to you. When you feel loss or emptiness remember that as long as there is any remaining belief that there is an influence working on you outside of your own Self, that is what has to go away or you will not find out that you, yourself, are your comforter. You, yourself, are the Christ. Your Jesus/Christ/I Am/Self is the your comforter. Be comfortable in that which I AM.
My heart leaps for joy. Two thousand years ago when I was Jesus I was painfully alone. But through that aloneness I discovered what it was to go from the material level to the spiritual, from law to grace. After that, I wanted so much to share how natural and simple it is to live by grace, but at that time no one was able to heard me. Now there are many -- you for instance -- who know the joy of living by grace. In the past it was your resistance to grace that kept you from experiencing your joy. But now you can smile at every human impulse and know that grace is living you. I AM.
Return to the center. The only place where you can find me is at the center of your being. That is where I AM. As long as you are only involved with what is happening on the outside, you cannot enter your center consciousness. Once centered in me, in the I AM of you, you can take your Christ spirit out into the world. But do not ask too much of your outer self, your humanity. It can’t overcome your human concerns. That is not its nature. Instead, expect me, the Christ at the center of your being, to come up with all the answers. Seek me there, and I will close the gap between your divinity and your humanity. I will fulfill you in ways that you never thought possible. Come to the center where I AM.
Part of you feels sad when you have to leave home, but there is no greater joy than that which you feel when you return. Without some down times, you would not experience the love you feel in returning home to your true being. When you don’t feel at home in your spirit look ahead in expectation of the greeting that awaits you when you once more experience the presence that I AM. The moment that you feel you are on your way home we can begin to celebrate. We will kill the fatted calf in anticipation of being together once more. Both the leaving and returning help us appreciate home, where our soul truly lives. It's all God -- both the journey and the return.
In quietness and confidence is your strength. I AM the strength that is made perfect when you feel at your weakest. Do not fear momentary weakness, for when you are weak you realize that your strength is in me. I AM with you until the end of the world. I AM your strength, and I will never leave you nor forsake you. I was with Buddha under the Bo tree; I was with Moses in the desert, I was with Jesus on the mountain even though none of them were always aware of my presence. In the same way, I will always be with you whether you realize it or not. In your quietness and confidence my strength is renewing you, and you will be ready for anything life offers you. I promise you.
There is one continuity in life: The love that I AM. Nothing else remains the same day-in-day-out. In the world your life is inconsistent. In the world sometimes you pay visits to the valleys and sometimes to the mountains as well and all in between, but I AM love, and my continuity is not of this world. It is what keeps the spirit alive in you and appearing as you. Do not think that you have to always be at peace, always be in harmony, always feel my presence, but do expect to always be able to once more become aware of the continuity of my love within you. Stop thinking and just remember the continuity of my love. When you least expect it you will consciously experience the love that I AM.
Contemplate the words I AM until they become a kind of background music that is playing even when you are not aware of it. It is no accident that the words, “ I AM”, have so much power. It isn’t the words themselves, but ever since Moses heard that I AM THAT I AM is the name of God a spiritual energy has been built up around the words that makes I AM resonate in the soul. When you say I AM you are talking to your Self, because I AM is your true name. Always remember, you are not a noun. You are the consciousness of what you are experiencing, and when you experience yourself as I AM you are being the presence of God on earth.
You cannot, but I can. When you once more accept limitation you are at the personal level. Alone, your humanity is limited. It can only go so far. You know that. But now that you understand that your third dimensional humanity is just an extension of your fourth dimensional divine/human self, you no longer have need to let your humanity shortchange you. I AM your higher consciousness, and I can do all things through and as your divine/human self. Continue to turn to me and you will see that I can. Once more let the I AM of yourself show your human self the way. I can. Ask nothing of yourself except to re-experience the truth that I AM you. I can. I, your divine human self, knows your need and I can fulfill it. I can and I will. Say it, “I can.”
I will keep you in perfect peace when your mind is stayed on the I that I AM. You cannot force your mind to be calm and controlled. When you do that your mind fights back. But you can trick your mind by using it to remember that I AM, your higher consciousness. Remember to seek first the Kingdom of God. Then you will know once more that you are my being -- the body of Christ. Re-member you are the Christ-light that I AM and when you do that all things will be added unto you. Remember and perfect joy, peace, health, and harmony will be yours by grace. You have brought it to yourself by renewing your membership in the consciousness of God.
I AM the door. If any man enter in by me, by experiencing that I AM THAT I AM, he or she shall be saved, and shall go in and out and find pasture. As you have done so many times before, you are standing at that door. I AM that door. I AM opening it for you. Hear my voice and re-enter your I AM consciousness. Because I AM your true being you can come and go at both the divine and the human levels of awareness. Face what you have to do today with confidence that you are my presence in the world, and know that your decisions come from me. I live in your spirit and in your flesh, as the human that I AM, and as the spirit that I AM. You are free to do what ever you wish.
Well done good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a few things. You are now able to rule over many things. Enter into the joy of the Lord. These words that I AM speaking to you are coming from within you. You are not reading them. You are hearing them. Your consciousness brought them to your attention this day. They are your own joy speaking to you. They are your being making it’s Self known. There are not two you’s but two dimensions of the One you. I AM that spirit you. Hear me and I will continue to guide the you that is in the world. Hear me, and watch your healing consciousness affect everyone and everything it touches.
When you hear me say, “Come unto me,” you may still feel as though God, something, or someone other than your own self is speaking to you. If so, you need to reminder that when your still small voice speaks you are experiencing your own higher consciousness, you I AM Self, once more. Realize that you are this I AM that is speaking to you right now. There is only one mind and that mind is your mind. Realize that this presence is you appearing as a divine human. That which you have sought within is yourself. I did not come that you might be fulfilled. I AM come that I might be fulfilled as you. I AM being myself in you and as you.
As long as you are on earth the collective consciousness will keep on trying to affect you. At one minute you may sense fear and at the next minute you will be at peace though nothing seems to have changed in the outer picture. This is because peace does not come to you. It is already included in you. Peace is already yours. When you behold it, it is there. See it in yourself like a special room in the house of your being. Take your eyes off the outer picture and enter your temple once more, the house in which I AM. That which I AM is the you the world knows not of. Stand aside and behold it. Then the peace that flows from you will turn around and flow to you. I behold you.
By this time you should know better than to try to solve your problem by analyzing them. The solution will come to you when you experience the peace that is within you. When you experienced peace it pulls the rug out from under your problems. Situations that look problematic exist but problems are illusions, because in my kingdom everything is in divine order. Seek me, the peace within yourself, and that peace will remove whatever seems to be blocking you. The experience of peace is fulfilled prayer. Peace experienced is Christ experienced, not someone else’s Christ, but yours. I AM the peace overcomes the world. Peace is not achieved. It is realized. Behold, I AM the peace that comes.
When, as Jesus, I said, "This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent." The “him” I was talking about was not my physical presence. I was talking about the only begotten Son, the recognized I AM that was appearing in and as me, that same I AM that is appearing in and as you when you recognize it. As Jesus I chastised my followers for coming to me just to get loaves and fishes, because in doing so they were missing the point of my miracles. The miracles took place because I knew the Christ to be my higher consciousness. Now you, too, experience the only begotten Son as yourself, and greater works will you do because you know who you are.
My grace is your sufficiency in all things. Wealth is not a matter of stored up money, accumulated knowledge, or the number of friends you have. Wealth is a sufficiency of grace operating in and as your life. Realize that the grace that I AM is your sufficiency in all ways and you will be wealthy. Recognize your wealth of grace, and you will be free from the need to collect, store up, or protect anything. Thank God that you have human needs, because they are there to remind you daily to make contact with me, the wealth of grace that I AM. Need brings you to the altar where my grace is experienced. I AM sufficient to handle anything life throws at you. Appreciate your wealth, and it will appreciate for you.
Rejoice because your name is written in heaven. It’s human to be happy over successfully fulfilled desires or some unexpected gift that has come to you. Ordinarily happiness comes about because something you have wanted to have happen to you has taken place or because you have received something that you have wanted, but my joy, divine happiness, comes at those times when you have experienced the presence of the Spirit that I AM. My Spirit I give you so that my joy might be experienced in and as you. Feel yourself into my presence. Feel your self filled from head to toe with the joy that I AM. Rejoice.
Gently, gently, gently. Do not feel that you always have to reach out to that which I AM. Don't struggle. Relax. Sit back and let me come to you. Rest in my love. Feel my confidence in you as I confide to you. You cannot lose what you have found; so there is no need to struggle. You have earned your peace by your devotion. Now let me, the I AM of you, serve you as you have so lovingly served me. Don’t feel you have to do anything. Just sit here for a while. Just wait and appreciate all you have and all you are blessed with being able to give. Gently, gently, gently.
I AM unable to fill you with myself today unless you completely empty yourself of all your concerns, all your expectations, and any limiting sense of self. A bowl is important because of what it can hold. There comes a time when it should be emptied so that it can be cleansed and made ready to receive once more. Today, use this time of prayer as an emptying time. Experience yourself being cleansed of all your concerns and limitations. Let go of them. I promise you that when you are empty I, the Christ of you, will fill you with my spirit and my love. Empty your temple so that I can refurbish it with the love and inspiration that I AM.
I AM nearer than breathing and closer than hands and feet, because I AM your completeness, and your completeness has never been closer. You have almost achieved the full realization and experience of being a divine human. You know it in the depth of your being. You know that you no longer need to seek anything apart from your own higher consciousness, that which I AM. Realize that you have just about fulfilled the same pattern that I as Jesus completed. You have been through your crucifixions and you have passed the resurrection. Now you are entering ascension consciousness, at which time your completeness will be total and you can say, as I did, “It is finished.”
Look back. When you do you will see that God, the reality of your being, has become a far greater presence in your life this year -- not despite the difficulties that you have been through or the people who have given you concern, but because of them. It is because of your difficulties that your I AM Self has become a greater reality in your life and that presence more sure. What more valuable gift could this year have brought? This is the gift of love, for God is love. My presence is the presence of love. Love has led you to me, your Christ self. Receive this gift, and there is no one or nothing left to forgive. Freedom is at your finger tips.
There is only love. When I appeared as Jesus, the time had come for the presence of love to be expressing itself as a living flesh and blood human being. My presence as your humanity is love made visible as you, a divine human being. You are love appearing. There is no other. What you have feared has been the absence of love, not the presence of evil. Evil is not a thing. It’s an absence, the absence of love. When you fully realize that you are love you will be experiencing an inner knowing that tells you that you are the same Christ as I AM.
Before all other thoughts have filled your mind you have had a sense of existing. You know you exist even though you cannot intellectually know exactly what it is that exists. You also know that though you cannot describe God with concepts, God, the cause of all life and the source of your own being, is. Spiritually, the first fruit that you have to offer is your Self before you have formed any concepts about what or who you are. Offer your first fruit Self to God, pure undefined existence. Feel your first fruit Self included in all that God is and you will experience the meaning of I AM THAT I AM.
Rest. If you fear taking a rest even as God did on the seventh day it means that you still doubt yourself. Your ego’s fear of losing control can keep you believing that you have to constantly search as though you are not already there. Sometimes you must stop your efforts in order to let the dust of Spirit settle so that you can see you are all that God is here and now. Today rest from all effort and let my Spirit reveal you to yourself without your having to do anything. You are my beloved son in whom I AM well pleased. Now rest. Rest in God, rest in me, rest in the I AM of yourself. Rest.
Greater works will you now do because the power of spirit has magnified itself in you and, God knows, the time has come for greater works. I, as love, have set the Christ in motion as you. In the past, when you have felt one with my spirit you have felt power full. Now my Spirit is at its peak and its greatness is personified as your being. You are that presence in its fullness. Accept it, honor it, feel your completeness in it. What ever you do now it will be with power. Nothing can stop you from adding your power of love to the critical mass that will lift the universe. You are the power of love. Now feel it and it will express its self as you.
You have been initiated into the mystery of I AM-ness. You have touched the hem of the Christ-robe and are complete within yourself. Now embrace your freedom. If you do not feel the fullness of peace at this moment, it is only because of some old human echo bouncing off of the walls of the past. Ask yourself if you are taking yourself to seriously once more. Let the past with its care worn concepts go. Embrace your new freedom. Doubt not that you have arrived, and I, your divine consciousness, will lead you once more beside still waters. Your belief that you are all that I AM has become a Self-fulfilling prophecy. You are. Embrace yourself.
Be entire wanting nothing. In the Epistle
of James I said for you to rejoice when you are tempted, because through temptation
your faith is tried, and by faith you can become entire, wanting nothing. Any
temptation to believe that you won’t be shown what to do or any temptation
to believe that you have a need for another person, place, or presence, is just
a valuable signal. Its purpose is to remind you that you are actually already
complete and whole within the “I AM” of your own being. Want nothing
from anyone, not even from your personal self, and though your good may seem
to come through others, everything will come to you because you have experienced
the presence that I AM.
