1-17. All the power of the Universe is contained in your choices. Whenever you stray from your Path... you can always choose again.
To be afraid is a choice. You can be fearless in the face of anything. To be alone is a choice. You can remember that you are already joined with all that lives at any moment. To be hateful is a choice. You can be patient and loving with anyone and in any situation you find yourself within. To be anything at all is a choice. All of your life is a series of choices. Choices between Truth and illusion, between Love and hatred, between Joy and pain, between Acceptance and judgment. Acceptance will bring much more Peace. Judgment will bring only pain by attempting to present you with illusions in substitution of Truth. Acceptance is in alignment with the Mind of God. God has already Judged. You were found to be infinitely Worthy of the Love of God. All the Children of God were Judged. All were found to be worthy. Not one Child is withheld the Love of God. Choices represent a distinction between that which is Real and that which is not real. There is much to learn from these distinctions. They represent all that is and all that is not. All that is not has no effect. Traveling nowhere, knowing nothing that is True and having no power to change anything in your life or in the lives of others, untruths are but illusions that appear to have power because of what you have invested in them. You can remove the power that these illusions currently enjoy over your mind. You do not need to be so affected by what you chose to give your power. When you invest your personal power of choice and belief in that which is not true, only you are degraded and limited. By doing so, you cast your energy towards a void of such depth that it can swallow all that you offer it, a black hole of the darkest depths, a place of such infinity emptiness that it can never be filled, never satisfied and never changed by all that is offered to it. All that you send into this pit will simply disappear and you will end up losing while the pit will gain nothing. This process is wasteful, though because God’s Love is Infinite, you will be constantly refilled with more power and energy and Light, constantly and forever. How you choose to use this power is your choice and you can elect to change what you are choosing at any time. You are not at all required to make choices that are not in alignment with what is best for you or for the Universe. You will not be dissuaded from making such choices, at least not directly. You will be allowed to make such choices because you have Free Will and it is not appropriate for any energy force, spiritual being or unit of consciousness to interfere with your Free Will. Help to commit to better and more realistic choices will be given, to the exact measure that you genuinely desire to have such assistance manifested in your life. Your energetic vibrations will always and forever determine what alignments are best for you. You cannot vibrate with any energy level that you are not ready to vibrate in alignment with. You cannot “fake” your energy or what your current vibrational state is in alignment with. This is not possible. If you should so desire to change your life, you must first make different choices. These choices can appear to be difficult. They can appear to entail many steps, choices that are strange or difficult for you or new ideas and concepts that you do not yet fully understand. This, too, is of no consequence when regarded from the perspective of the entire journey back to Truth that currently engages you. It is a wondrous Truth that you do have Free Will. Lacking such a liberating Gift, you would indeed be well and truly stuck, forever determined to live your life in a certain pattern with no ability to change anything at all. Destiny, in such a world, would not be a course of guidance to help you move towards your highest self, destiny would instead be a terrible burden, a sentence to live in a prison of obligation to a path that was already chosen for you. This is not your life. This is not the way. Now and forever, you have a choice. You can choose pain, regret and fear or you can choose Love, Expansion and Joy. All that occurs in this world is but a lesson. Examples of what is to be and what can be. There is only one destination. That destination is to return to your original mind, a state of consciousness in which all that is Real is known and enjoyed and all that is not real is left behind. What is not Real dwells in shadows. What is Real forever shines in the Light of Truth, standing tall and forever ready to accept you as you choose to return to Truth. That you may stray from the Path that returns your mind to the Mind of God is quite likely. Rarely does any mind return to its Origin within the Heart of Love without some missteps, diversions and distractions. Perhaps a select few have shot like an arrow towards a bull’s eye of perfect alignment with Truth. Rare indeed were these Souls and fortunate were they to be able to take such a direct course towards their goal. This is of no consequence to your life and your path, however. It is not for you to judge what they have done. Is it even appropriate for you to judge what you have done. It is likely that you do not understand much of what you have chosen or why you chose that particular path. This is not important. You do not need to understand. God knows. You do not need to know. God will forever retain that which was True about your life, your heart and your choices. All of the rest that you have known, all that was not True, will simply fade away into the mists of illusion, forever having no consequence and eternally devoid of any relevance or impact on your life and your journey back to Truth. Your Path may seem to be circuitous. It may appear that you are diverging, losing yourself or moving in directions that are inappropriate or counter to where you want to go. This may be the case. Or it may not. You may not always realize that even when you move in ways that appear to you to be in opposition to where you desire to go, you may actually be moving in the right direction. Your ego will oppose you at almost every step of the journey. Your ego will desire to keep you in the dark, isolated from all that is True and forever believing what the ego thinks is true. The ego is a self-reinforcing cycle of lies and deception. It is a creation of the body, a learned cycle of self-justifying certainty in a belief that the body represents the origin of consciousness. It does not. Consciousness arises and then creates the need for and the utility of a body. This process does not occur in reverse. First mind, then body. Most of the choices in this world that will lead to pain, loss and isolation in some way reflect this reversal of Truth. Alignment with the physical can only bring pain and loneliness. The physical world is a place of constant change and renewal. It is a forever cascading series of moments, a waterfall of transformation in which absolutely nothing remains as it is for any significant period of time. But mind and Truth do not change. Reflecting a certainty in what is Real, your journey back to Love is but a series of choices, a choice between that which is forever Real and that which is forever false. You are free to make any choice you should so desire. Choices that align you with that which is not true will have no effect. Choices that place you on a Path towards that which is True will have an effect – they will place you ever closer to a state of mind of perfect Peace and total acceptance of all that occurs. Knowing that only you can walk your Path, that you cannot save another from their illusions and that only you can choose when you return to Truth is all freedom you will ever need to return to Heaven while you still occupy a physical body.
