1-39. All that you will need has already been given to you. These Gifts exist in your Mind of Peace. Seek and you will remember them.
You may believe that you have many minds. A happy mind, or a happy mood. Another mind for anger, another for sadness and so forth, endlessly cycling around and around, changing with the circumstances, never the same and lacking any truly foundational relationship to each other. In Truth, this is not actually the case. You have but one mind, one Mind of Peace that was your original mind and which remains forever accessible to you whenever you are ready to relinquish all that you have placed on top of this mind. This Mind of Peace is the place in which your thoughts begin to come into harmony with the Mind of God. It is an open mind, a peaceful mind in which all is accepted just as it is, without hesitation, reservation or judgment. This state of mind may, at this time, appear to be difficult to achieve. It may appear to be an enlightened state of mind, one which is occupied solely by ascended beings, not people who could possibly bear any relationship to you or to how you may feel about yourself or your personal situation, right now. This is not actually true in any way. All of the Souls who are regarded within the annals of history as being transcendent or enlightened did not achieve a new or different state of mind than what is accessible to you. It is not that they were born with some special magic, some astral body of light which guaranteed them a privileged place in this world. They found themselves in this world for exactly the same reason you now find yourself here. You forgot. That you forgot the Gifts of God does not mean that you have lost them. The Gifts of God are not revoked, not clawed back or ripped from your heart because you have in some way committed a “sin” or because you have acted in some manner that is offensive to God. This is not possible. God’s Infinite Mercy is for all of the Children of God. It is never withheld, never removed and God’s Mercy can never be lost. It can be forgotten. This is a simple process. Because it is but a simple error, a brief turning away from the Light of Love and a regarding of that which is temporary as being a permanent state of affairs, it can be corrected, quickly and easily. To correct is an error is to see beyond it to the Truth that has forever been available to you. This Truth goes far beyond all that can be expressed in words. It must truly be Experienced to be accepted wholly. But words can serve as valuable markers, signposts along the way that can direct you to the place in your mind in which you can remember your Mind of Peace. The Gifts of God are without limit. They are far too vast to enumerate and much too large to attempt to depict in words. Not even actions are sufficient to truly begin to illustrate the myriad Gifts of God and the Joy that will fill your heart with love as you begin to be ready to accept that these Gifts are for you, just as they are for all of the beautifully Perfect Children of God. In what you likely believe is your rational and ordinary mind, this concept may appear to be almost ludicrous in its proposition and import. It would seem to suggest that you are more than you appear to be. This is actually very much True. You are much more than anything that can be expressed, encompassed or represented in this world, in this universe of physical matter and the inherent limits that accompany the physical laws of the universe. Joy is not of this world. It can be experienced here and it can be a highly effective guide that points towards another world, a place of Peace and Harmony that this world appears unable to understand or offer to you. When you are truly in alignment with your Mind of Peace, all limits will fall away and nothing that occurs will be experienced by you as having the power to alter or affect your inherent Peace. Your Mind of Peace is forever available to you. You need only accept that it is possible for you to relinquish all beliefs in limits, in assumptions and in beliefs that any particular occurrence or event must engender and require a reaction from you. It does not. You can react to all that occurs with calm and equanimity, no matter how challenging or difficult it may appear at the time it first arises. No other person has the power to disturb your calm. They cannot alter your mind. You always have a choice to react in any manner that you believe is appropriate. You may desire to react with anger, resentment or outrage. These ideas represent learned behaviors, patterns of reactive behavior that have been passed down from one generation to the next. They do not need to continue indefinitely. They can end. There can be Peace in your mind. You can accept that the actions of others are their choices. You can choose how you feel is best to react to anything that occurs. To accept that you always have a choice is but to accept that you are already free. This process of undoing, of unwinding the chains of dicta that appear to govern your mind and force you into knee jerk reactions to events that you do not like, can run deep. But they can be reversed, released and transcended. With time and practice, it can become possible to accept the actions of others without resentment and without a desire to alter their behavior. This is not to acquiesce. This is not to allow others to take advantage of you, or to ignore inappropriate or unacceptable behavior. Rather, it is to accept that no matter what others do or do not do, you can still be at peace with their decisions, even if you do not agree with them. To seek is to find, it a manner that is not expressible in words but which must be Experienced to truly be understood. To seek for your Mind of Peace is to find it, for it has always been with you. It is underneath all that has been layered on top, below all of the illusions and all of the dictates of others that you have accepted as requirements for you. You can be at peace in any moment, in any situation, without limit and without exception. This is possible for all that you will ever need to remember the Mind of God has already been Given to you by God. All of the Gifts of God exist within your mind. They are not far away, not separated from you and not inaccessible. They have merely been forgotten, replaced with a great variety of other ideas that may have held value for you but which will not always been of use to you. To release all illusions is but to accept that there are certain Truths that do not change. Supreme above a veritable Universe of Truth is simply that you are Loved. Now, always and forever, you are Loved. To accept this is to begin to accept so much more. In this acceptance is found your Mind of Peace. What conflict can exist in a mind which has accepted Love as both its origin, destination and composition?
