2-41. God's Love for you is Complete and Eternal. The past and the future exist only in your mind. The present moment is where you will find Love.
The only time in which it is appropriate to look for the Love of God is in the present moment, for only the present moment is actually Real. The past and the future are merely concepts, fragmentary illusions generated by recollections of that which has already transpired and projections into the future of what it is you wish, or do not wish, to see occur. There is no past and no future within all that is Real, for neither concept reflects anything that is actually Real. The present moment is the home and location of the Mind of God, for only the infinitely cascading waterfall of events that occur within the frame of the present contain an access point to the Mind of God and the Love that is forever yours, whenever you are ready to accept its Grace and Light into your life. The Love of God is Complete for it is total, withholding nothing from any Child of God and completely independent of whatever it is that you might think of yourself, right now. In the past, you may have regarded yourself and your life in a manner that you no longer hold for yourself. In the future your perceptions, beliefs and ideas about yourself may be different than they are today. None of this is of any concern to God. This is because God already Knows you just as you are - a Perfect Spirit of Love, wanting for nothing, devoid of nothing, in need of nothing and forever Complete, just as you were Created. Your perceptions of yourself, which for a great many are perversely pervaded with illusions generated by the ego’s madness, do not reflect a reality that is actually Real within the Perfect expanse that is the Mind of God. God’s Love for you is Eternal, for it has always been and it will always be forever Given, regardless of the degree to which it is accepted. It is important to always remember that it is impossible and nonsensical to attempt to divide that which is Infinite into parts. This can not occur. There can be no division or separation of that which is Infinite. As such, because God’s Love for you is Infinite, it is Eternally available in the present moment. The present moment is the only part of the expanse of time that is actually Real, for everything else are moments that have either passed or that have yet to be experienced. Do not look for the Love of God in your memories, for while you may have Experienced this Perfect Love, your memories are generally imperfect and they may shift and change over time, perhaps degrading or becoming partially corrupted by new ideas and beliefs that will shift the foundation of your memories, tainting them with new energies that are not appropriate to apply to them. Do not look for the Love of God in the future, for the future has yet to arrive and what it will be is consistently indeterminate until it is distilled, though the process of your choices and the choices of others, into the final form that it will take when it arrives in the present moment. The present moment is the location of the Mind of God and it is the only time in which you will have ready and direct access to God’s Love, for within the present moment, your mind can connect with and be enraptured by the Mind of God, washing away the dark stains of fear and allowing the Light of Love to return to the forefront of your mind. Accept the past, for it has past and it is now completed, in whatever manner it transpired, never to be changed or altered for its completion has been found and rendered into the structure that it holds. You do not live or exist in the past. You do not live or exist in the future, either. The future is a vast plane of possibilities, nearly endless options that you can elect to choose as you see fit whenever you should want, literally creating your reality in whatever form you believe is best for you. Indeed a great many have done just this, creating the reality that they wish to have for themselves, whether that is a reality of pain, loss, fear and regret or a brighter existence, one filled with hope, love, certainty and the promise of the eternal Safety that you enjoy within the Heart of God. Nothing will prevent you from choosing the world you wish to look out upon and nothing can alter your Free Will, subjugating you to the commands of another, for always you can choose how you react to anything that might occur. This freedom of choice is unlimited and eternal, a Gift Given to all of the Children of God, although precious few elect to accept it, instead believing that they must react in prescribed patterns or with rote responses simply because that is the manner in which they have behaved in the past. This does not need to be your fate. You are not a slave to the minds of others, destined to repeat the same patterns over and over again, never realizing that your freedom forever lies solely within your own grasp. Look for the Light again and again, knowing that which each request your prayers will be answered and that it is only your own choice to believe that you cannot find the Light of Love in the present moment that is serving to restrict your perceptions, narrowing them from a field of nearly infinite possibility down to a tiny subset of all that can be. The Love of God rests quietly at the center of your heart. You have the power, grace and ability to find and remember this Love again, at any time that you should choose, just as soon as you are ready to release the layers of illusions that your ego has attempted to place over the simplicity and clarity that the Light of Love will cast throughout all of the infinite expanse of your mind. You, and you alone, hold this power for yourself. It cannot be given away and it cannot be taken from you. No other Child of God has such a power over you. They have their own journeys and their own Paths to walk back to God and to Truth. You walk your own personal Path, electing for yourself to either move forward or to remain still, desiring to be just as you have always been, despite the fact that the Way is forever open and that the Light of Love will never fail to guide you Home. If ever you should doubt, rely upon your nascent or perhaps now developing Faith to erase the thoughts from your mind that appear to restrict you, allowing the Love of God to be all that remains, casting aside beliefs in limitations, fear and impossibilities. There is nothing that is impossible for God. There are no restrictions that prevent the Love of God from being Experienced by you at any moment. But know always that the moment in which you will Awaken, now freed from all that restricted the Light of Love from being known and Experienced, is the present moment. No other aspect of time contains sufficient vastness or depth to allow for the Experience of accepting the Love of God as your Love but the eternally perfect and constantly unfolding present moment, a miracle of Creation that knows no bounds.
