2-22. Bloom as a flower within the Heart of Love as you return to what is Real. The Path to God is within you. You can never fail to find the Way.
Bloom you will, with great and beautiful petals of peace, effervescing the scent of Love that will waft through the many layers of your mind, reminding you of the perfection of the Garden of God in which your Soul was Created and the Gifts of God bestowed upon you, never to be lost, changed, altered or destroyed. There is a way to go Home while you are still resident within your body. This Path is not walked with your feet and it is not seen with your eyes, for it is a spiritual Path and it both begins and ends in your heart. Your heart is not what you think it is. It is much more than simply the center of your consciousness and the source of all inspiration in this world. Your heart is an eternally perfect Gateway, the one place within this world that has always remained fully connected to the Heart of God, no matter what illusions have been placed over the Perfection of the Love of God and the Certainty that because you are Loved, you are already Home. It is so very easy in this world to believe that there is no way to go Home. This is because the way to go Home is in no way of this world. It is not a journey completed or a quest resolved. It is indeed a process, but not one that has any direct correlation to the processes of this world, with their definite beginnings and endings. This process does not actually start, for you have never left the Heart of Love. This process does not actually end, for you have never left the Heart of God. This process is not a completion of a transformation into anything that you are not already, it is simply an unfolding and undoing of all that has been placed upon your innate Perfection. How is this process initiated? It begins with your voluntary and fully conscious acceptance that it is clearly impossible that this material world must be all that there is to Creation. To say that this world, with its nearly endless array of issues, problems, conflicts and seemingly constant strife, must contain the sum totality of all that God has Created is a proposition that has no justification. That is because this world is not at all Perfect in any way. It can appear to be perfect, and indeed the peace and contentment that can be found here, when you are ready to remain fully centered in the present moment, unwilling to cast your thoughts backwards into the immutable past or forwards into the unknowable future, does accurately reflect the Peace of God and the Joy that will come with the unmitigated acceptance of the ever present awareness that is the Mind of God. God is Aware, and this is enough. It is more than enough, in Truth – it is All. For in the Awareness of God, all is Known, including your Perfection and the Perfect Light that your heart holds safe for you until you are ready to embrace this Light again as your own, arising from the fleshly form that you inhabit and remembering that you are a Soul – undying, forever Safe, and eternally Loved by that which is Love Itself. What more that this could you possibly request from Perfection but that it remain forever still, Knowing you just as you were Created and ignoring all that you have attempted to place upon this Perfection as some form of insanely self-justifying reasoning for believing that you could in any way be anything other than Perfect? Do not look to this world or its teachings for the way to go Home, for this world is not a perfect place and it rarely holds any lessons that in any way serve to accurately point the way to go back to the Love of God. There is another way. That way is the Path of Faith, the acceptance of the Certainty that the Love of God is found in your heart and that you can dive deeply into the center of your heart, relinquishing all that you attempted to hold against the Perfection of all of God’s Creation and finding that once all else is released, only Love remains. All that is Real, now and forever, is only Love, dearest and most boundlessly beautiful Child of God. You are an integral, essential and irreplaceable part of this Love. It is not to say that God is incomplete without you, for you have never left the Heart of God. It is much more appropriate to state instead that God awaits your Return to Love with open arms and gentle caresses, knowing you as the Perfectly Created Soul that you have always been and waiting patiently until you are both willing, able and absolutely ready to accept this Love as your own. You cannot and you will not fail as you walk your own personal Path back to God, for that which God Creates is Perfect and as such, the Path that has been Created for you to take to Return to the Love of God is Perfect, too. It may take you to many places you never expected, into situations that do not appear on the surface to have anything at all to teach you, and to people that appear, at least at first, to be most objectionable, difficult, endlessly trying to your patience and perhaps even vexing to an extent that may appear to be literally unbearable. Persist, Child of God. Do not relent to anything that appears to stand in the way of your ability to regard absolutely every other Child of God as equally as Loved by God as you are. All that you hold against them you hold against yourself in absolutely equal measure. The importance of this equality of withholding from others and from yourself cannot possibly be overstated. You must accept that you do not need to know the “why” of another person’s behavior to be able to accept them, just as they are, and to accept that they are Loved by God just as much as you are, no matter how deeply they resist and turn away from this Love in favor of what their egos offer to them as truth. They sleep, dreaming of being just a body, trapped and alone in a dungeon of the flesh, destined to die and be no more. They do not know of the Glory of God, not yet, for it is not yet their time to accept their own Light. As such, be the Light of Love for them until they are ready to See it within their own hearts, for you must be willing to not withhold from them or from yourself simply because you do not yet feel as perfect as you actually are, have always been and will always be. Do not doubt the Perfection of the Creation of God, for in doing so you withhold from yourself everything that is actually Real in favor of a shadow world, a place of half-truths and unseen certainty, dwelling in the cold illusions of the ego instead of accepting the beautifully warm and healing Light of Love that is forever available to you just as soon as you are willing to accept it as your own. The way to Return to God is through your heart, glorious Child of God. The way is open. It has never been closed to you. Only for the shortest amounts of time, when regarded from the Infinity that is the Mind of God, have you dreamed of being a fragile being of this world, destined to perish after an existence that may have been regarded as being utterly devoid of meaning. There is meaning to be found in this world, and it is simply this – this world is a place of uncertainty, reflecting the uncertainty that you continue to hold in your heart regarding your own True Nature. You are Love, Child of God, only Love, always Love, forever Love. This Love is the bridge from this world to the Kingdom of Heaven, the Home of Peace and the Heart of God. It is a Light that will never be extinguished, a Song that will always be Sung and a Path that will remain forever open, free and available to you. You alone can take this Path back to God, releasing all that appeared to separate you from Peace, until you are finally ready to awaken as the Perfect Child of God that you have always been. When you arise again, freed of all of the ego’s fears and lies, you will know that you were always Home, Safe within Heaven, resplendent in the Mind of God and Loved beyond all imagining.
