1-24. Strive to polish the mirror of your Soul so perfectly that you begin to reflect the Love of God to all who cannot yet see it.
This may a first glance appear to be a directive, an order to perform an action or undertake a course of study or a quest to change yourself. This is not its intention. To polish the mirror of your Soul is not a difficult process or a challenging event requiring perseverance or dedication. It is actually a remarkably simple process. All that is involved is a gentle undoing of a system of thought you have likely been acquiring and reinforcing for most, if not all, of your current incarnation in this world. That these thoughts had value, within the context of what this world holds dear and what it considers to be necessary and worthwhile thoughts is not in dispute. Indeed to proceed through your life with no assignment of at least partial necessity to the illusionary concept that your body serves as a demarcation point, a place of separation from all else that lives, has great utility to facilitate communication with other incarnate Children of God. However, were you to hold yourself out as fully connected and forever intertwined with them, you might be regarded as at least partially insane or so intractably unwilling to participate in what forms, in many regards, a global hallucination of separation, that you would find that effectively communicating with others would be become quite hampered by their discriminatory judgments of the accuracy of your perception of reality. Accept that there is not separation. But do not throw this concept into the faces of others. To do so will only serve to decrease their willingness to listen to what you have to say. To wear the mask of the ego is absolutely distinct from believing in its reality. Wear it, yes, as it is a necessary tool to facilitate easy and acceptable modes of communication, through the means of speech, from one body to another body and by extension, from one mind to another. This has value. But do not believe that the mask of the ego is Real. For it is not, it has never been and it can never be. In the gentle undoing of this belief in the ego, you can begin to ascend to ever higher levels of consciousness, gradually laying aside your prior beliefs in separation and isolation in favor of a new appreciation for the Unity that forever intertwines and joins our collective destinies. By allowing your prior beliefs in the ego to fall behind you, you walk a new Path. This Path leads back to God, back to what is True and back to a place of such pure Light that as you travel ever closer to it, the clarity that it will bring will become so undeniably Real that to ever turn back to the darkness of the ego will simply become utterly unacceptable for you. Who would ask to dwell in the pit of the ego’s abysmal falsities when the Light of Truth is so readily available in every moment? This is not a choice. At least not a choice that anyone who has begun to experience even a glimmer of the Truth of Love will ever regard as having any value. What the ego offers is forever untrue. What God offers is forever True. This is not a distinction of opposites or a contest between two completing worldviews. The ego’s vantage point, while seemingly real and valid, is based upon assumptions and illusions so vastly unsupportable that they must constantly and continually reinforce themselves, as they have no solid ground on which to stand. The mirror of your Soul is already Perfect. Much dust of the ego’s lies to you has fallen upon it. This dust may appear to obscure the Light of Love that you reflect from Heaven at all times. Indeed some mirrors are so obscured that their possessors are totally unaware that the Light shines at all. This is unfortunate, but it is not limiting in any way. It simply is. That which is occurring at this exact moment in time is not in any way representative of that which can be True in the future. You have, in every moment and at every turn in your life, the ability to choose to regard the world in a different manner than you previously chose to employ. As you grow in the Light, you will inevitably begin to feel the Truth of Love, if not within what appears to be the confines of your mind, then within the crystalline certainty of your heart. Your heart serves a purpose separate from your mind, but they can work in concert to assist you to return to Love. Your heart does not need and does not use words, being abstract concepts, to perceive its world. Your heart simply accepts that which it feels, needing no justification for its yearnings or explanations for its depths. The mirror of your Soul is already Perfect. You may not be ready, within your mind as you know it now, to accept this Perfection. This is of no consequence. Perfect it is and Perfect it will forever be. It has not forgotten you, just as God has not forgotten you. The Light of Heaven shines throughout all the world in the hearts of those Children of God who are willing to allow the Light to shine through them. It acts as a beacon of Truth, counteracting the dark clouds of the ego’s desire to enslave you to its unsupportable central tenet that you are separate from all else that Lives. You are not, have never been and will never be. It is important, for the process of kindness and nonjudgmental awareness to arise within you, to recognize and accept that not everyone you met will yet be willing to accept that their Souls are mirrors of the Love of God, too. Just because they cannot or will not yet allow this concept to be entertained in their own minds to any real degree should in no way dissuade you from undertaking the process of polishing the mirror of your Soul. As you grow deeper into accepting the simple Truth that you and they are but One Life, you will naturally grow ever closer to a state of awareness in which acceptance of their current beliefs in limitations will become increasingly your natural reaction to any statements they make or ideas they express that appear to run counter to this Unity. Instead of attempting to influence their thought processes or trying to illustrate the fallacies of their reasoning, you will simply arrive at a place of quiet contemplation, a state of mind of acceptance in which you will gently accept their perspective as being valid for them even though you will know that it does not truly reflect Reality. In this peaceful Light of acceptance, you will show them that you are willing to allow them to be just as they are, with whatever ideas they may hold, at whatever place they are in their own personal Path back to God. This gentle energy that you will radiate will allow them to feel recognized and heard by you, allowing them to settle into ever deeper levels of trust in their communication with you, giving them the Gift of being confident enough in your gentle acceptance of their current state of mind that they will begin feel encouraged to look more deeply inside of themselves, perhaps asking themselves more and more illustrative questions about their own nature. By consistently and kindly reflecting the Light of Love from Heaven through the clear mirror of your Soul, you honor both the eternal Life that is your Origin as well as encouraging others to accept that this Life is forever their Origin as well.
