1-16. Created by perfect Love, you are already complete. Only your imperfect beliefs bind you. Release them... and you will be free.
Beliefs have the power to enchain a mind to an extent that cannot be properly expressed in words. These chains can truly be unbreakable. They can trap a mind in a series of beliefs, forever reinforcing themselves, appearing to offer truth but in fact being forever incorrect. Free Will is both a blessing and a curse, in this sense. Free Will allows you to choose again. Forever you are free to choose whatever world you should wish to see. As you choose, so is the world forever recreated before you, renewing again and again in a panoply of possibility, never the same world twice and constantly reflecting what you believe you are seeing. In fact, the world is nothing. It does not actually exist, not in Reality. It is a temporary playground of material things, a place in which Souls can venture for a while to contemplate their existence and to be, temporarily and only in appearance, but not in Truth, separated from all else that exists. This separation is not real. It could never be and will never be. Separation is impossible. You are already and forever joined with all else that lives. Life is who you are, and you are all that lives. There is no death. Transition, renewal, change, transformation to new forms, expansion and growth are all aspects of who you are, in Truth. Death is not an aspect of life. The only death that could even be spoken of in any sense that would have any validity for anyone is the death of the ego. Even this is not a real death, as the ego is not, has not, and will never be Real. The ego is a self-reinforcing cycle of beliefs that leads you to hold yourself separate from all that is. How could such a notion of separation retain its hold on a mind that has started to allow the Light of Love to return? It could not and will not, not for you or for any other person who chooses to accept that the ideas and concepts that they have believed for so long could possibly be real. To release your beliefs is not actually a difficult process at all. It is easier than breathing. Simpler than living. More straightforward than even the process of the conception of a single thought. In truth, to release a belief is but to allow Truth to take the place of lies. No effort is needed. The Light is requested, and the Light comes. As the Light is always shining, it needs nothing, asks nothing and requires nothing to return to your mind. It was always already there. You chose to look away from the Light. You may not remember making this choice. That is not of any consequence. You did choose and now you find yourself with a mind occupied with many beliefs of separation, isolation and dislocation from your origin within Love. This is of no consequence. That you chose to separate yourself from Love does not in any way determine, control or dictate that Love will choose to separate from you. Love will never abandon you. God will always Love you, knowing you as a Child of God and desiring only that you return to Truth when you are ready for Truth. Because beliefs are sticky, because they have a tenacious nature and they are usually deeply entwined within your mind, they will not always be relinquished in one quick step. A great many beliefs will require much time and effort to extract from all of the dark corners and shadow places of your mind. This is a normal process. It is a process of healing, a process of allowing the Light to return and of allowing the Light to shine into all of the places in your mind in which you are still holding onto beliefs of unworthiness. At their core, a great many of the beliefs that prevent you from feeling and being a part of the Light of Love are based on ideas of not being worthy of such Glory, such Grace and such uplifting Perfection. You are already Perfect, just as you were Created. Nothing can change this Perfection. No blemish exists to hide your Soul from God. Not all beliefs must, by their nature, be imperfect. In Truth, many beliefs can be quite perfect and directly in alignment with the Will of God. God’s Will is only that all of the Children of God return to Truth. Nothing more than this is asked. But nothing less as well. As you heal, you too will return. Healing occurs in many different ways, in stages, sometimes in fits and starts and at other times in a constant wave of growth. Sometimes healing occurs on an unconscious level, sometimes it occurs in ways that you are directly aware of. This, too, is of no consequence. It would not be at all unfair to categorize this world as a place of healing, a place in which all Souls can safely exist for a short time while they dispel a great many untrue ideas from their minds. In this function, this world has great utility and usefulness. It might not be unfair to categorize this world as having nearly perfect conditions for Souls to explore their own connection to all else that lives. This connection can be felt. It is permanent, forever functioning and in operation at all times, in all places and within all minds. But a great many minds are not yet ready to feel this connection. This is of no consequence, in truth. A desire to not feel, be aware of, or even to not regard Truth as being True in no way diminishes or changes what True. Such desires only serve to work against those who hold such beliefs, clouding their minds and presenting them with a reality and world that is not at all in alignment with what the world actually presents. As before, this is of no consequence. Desiring to believe an idea that is not true does nothing – such desires have no effect. Desiring to return to alignment with that is True does have an effect – such desires will assist the mind that holds them to begin to release ideas that are incorrect. In the void left by the absence of mistakes, which are merely ideas that are not in alignment with what is actually True, space will be made for ideas that are much more closely reflective of Truth to begin to arise. Ideas, in and of themselves, are not enough. They only point to Truth. Ideas are not Truth. Truth can only be Experienced. It can be lived, enjoyed and felt deeply, not though the mechanism of the mind but with the wordless certainty of the heart. Your heart functions as a gateway to your Soul. It is more than just the center of your feelings, it represents a much higher form of consciousness, a place of Certainty and Safety within the Mind of God that you forever occupy. All ideas that are directly in alignment with and that reflect Truth will enter your mind from your heart. They cannot arrive any other way. Your mind is complex and multifaceted, but it is still just a series of abstractions layered endlessly upon other abstractions. Your mind does not represent Truth, it functions solely as an information processing and experiential unit on consciousness, a point from which to distinguish between what you believe yourself to be and what you believe everything else to be. Because there is no separation, not between you and all else that lives or between your mind and all other minds, your mind is not the ultimate arbiter of what you Experience as Truth. Your heart has been granted this function, and well it should have such a role in your life as only your heart has the capacity to correctly See that which is eternally Real just as it is. Seeing is not perception. Perception forever desires only to interpret what you want to see and then presents it to you. True Sight is a function of total acceptance of Truth with no desire to change any aspect of Truth. Such total acceptance is directly in alignment with God’s Heart. As such, only your heart has the ability to release all illusions, instead Seeing a world of completeness and total perfection, just as it has always been and just as it will always be. To say that you are already complete is but a statement of Truth. For you to arrive at a place in your own life and within your own mind where you believe that you are already complete requires much more than just statements. While such declarations point the way back to Truth, they are not enough. They function only as markers, signposts that indicate the way to travel or the path to take to arrive at a destination that you desire to find. For some people, to even know where they want to go is not at all possible, at least not yet. Some people will require much time and healing to begin to arrive at a point from which they can even see the road signs that are directly in front of them. This, too, is of no matter or consequence. All steps in life either lead back to Truth, or they lead nowhere. You cannot venture further or deeper into disassociation from that which is already True than the distance you have already traveled. You have not actually gone anywhere. Heaven is already within you. But your ideas of separation and disassociation from Peace function to block this Truth from your mind. You can error. You can believe you are imperfect, incomplete or unworthy. This is not True, but you can believe it for as long as you so desire to believe. However your incorrect beliefs will not stand forever. At the end of time, at a place so distant in both chronological measure and spiritual development that it can barely be understood from where most Souls are currently standing in the course of their personal development, all Souls will find themselves drawing closer and closer to Truth. Pervasive ideas of separation, loss and pain will be scarce and infrequently contemplated in this deep and distant future. But there is no need for you to wait. You do not have to continue to return to this place again and again, cycling through body after body and experience after experience, to return to Truth. You can be Free, today, now, immediately and utterly, without reservation and without any fear. All you need do is accept that you are already Complete, completely Loved, completely worth of Love, and totally Safe within the Heart of Love. Once you are ready to accept this level of Glory and Peace for yourself, you will shed all else that you believed. Thoughts not in alignment with Truth will continue to arise after you have accepted your Completeness. But they will cease to have any effect. You will no longer be able to believe them, because you will know that you are Loved, and nothing more than this will you ever need.
