1-9. You are so much greater than you imagine, so much stronger than you dream and so much more loved than you've ever conceived.
Because the ego is so hideously tiny, so insanely focused on its own limited perspective and so totally incapable of seeing anything that is actually real, the ego will attempt in every interaction to lie to you and to tell you that you are just as tiny and insignificant as the ego believes itself to be. This is not correct. Created by a Spirit so vast, so loving and so outrageously gentle and peaceful, your Nature eternally reflects the gracious and loving Nature of God. This should not be construed to indicate that you are just as great as your Creator. This would be the height of arrogance. You do not need to be. You need only to be yourself, exactly as you were Created, to be wondrously and gorgeously beautiful as you radiate the Light of Love that was Created for you, with you and given to you when you were Created. This Light is unique to you. Each Soul has its own Light. They are all different. Each Light forms part of a spectrum of the completed Light of Love which illuminates the entire Universe with a radiance that is vitally needed to help all Souls return from the illusions in which they drift and twist, imagining that they are separate from all that they regard as different in any way from themselves. You do not require reassurance, proof or even knowledge of how very great and vast that you actually are. This is not needed. When you are ready to release all of ideas that you must prove something to someone, or that anything should be proven to you, you will relax into the peace that comes with returning to your original state of mind, a place in which all is accepted just as it is, without any desire to affect or change the outcome, without any affectations of the ego and without any wish that you should be something or someone other than who you are. This is quite enough. To be you, just the unique you that you have always been, this is all that is asked and all that you could possibly ever need from yourself or from God. But to ask for more, and specifically to ask for less, this is a fallacy of the highest order. Almost everyone will error on the side of asking for, seeking for and desiring to be less that what they actually are. This is the most common direction in which the ego will lead your mind. The ego wishes you to think that you are like the ego, a massively diminished caricature of what you are in Truth. However some rare individuals will move in the other direction, believing that their ego somehow provides them with a justification for massive over-inflation of their worth, to the point of abject insanity in the opposite direction that most take. This is rare, but it is most telling of the ego’s insane desire to constantly affect the mental state of the mind that formed the ego. The ego is never satisfied. It will never rest. It will never relent, never cave in, never admit that it is actually nothing at all, a lie that lies to itself over and over again. You are not this. You could never have been, you are not now and you will never be. But it is so easy to believe that you are not great. That you are not vitally needed. That your life and your experiences and all that you are, have been and will ever be, are not a vitally important part of a much larger scheme of universal re-harmonization that has been occurring since before time itself started flowing. Indeed you are, as is everyone who has ever taken even a single breath in this world. All are needed. None are superfluous. No life is without its place. No Soul was ever Created to be useless, irrelevant or unneeded. This is not part of the Plan of God. There is a place for you. You can find this place. You need only ask. You may already be in the place and time where you are needed most. Or you may not. Neither is relevant to your ability to find your way back Home. Home is not a place, it is not a single time or proximal geographic location that you might once have occupied. Home is a state of mind, a willingness to accept the divine guidance that is available in every moment to everyone who should have any need of it. At times this guidance will indicate that there is nothing to do. This is good. These are times to rest and be content with the world just as it is. But there will be times during which your assistance will be requested. You can always choose to not assist. That is acceptable, as you have Free Will and will forever have the ability to choose. But you need not choose in opposition to what you actually want. You may not realize that you do, in Truth, want to help. To assist others in whatever manner is best both for them and for yourself. You may think that all you want is to assist yourself. It is true, in one sense, that you do desire to place yourself first. Nothing is wrong with this concept. If all you do is give to others and never attempt help for yourself, you will become massively exhausted. This is inevitable. But to give only to yourself is not at all in alignment with your nature. There is much more to this world than to ask for what you wish to have realized in your life to the exclusion of all others. You cannot separate yourself from them. They cannot separate themselves from you. There is no possibility of separation. In Truth, we are all One. This Oneness, this unity of being, provides the greatest comfort and strength that anyone could ever possibly ask for or even dream of being Real. Because each life is but an aspect of a single, Universal Life that continues to Live regardless of anything that any part might think of itself, we are all forever Safe and forever strong enough to face whatever individual tragedies might befall us. Indeed many of us have, and we have survived. Most of us have survived. Some have not. Some have dwelled so deeply in their pain of loss that they elected to end their own lives rather than to face the pain that they found to be so crushingly overwhelming. This is most unfortunate, but it is to be expected and accepted. All are infinitely strong. All the Power of the Universe supports everyone who is willing to ask for and accept this support. Every moment of life is beautiful, wondrous and absolutely worth living, despite anything and everything that has befallen everyone who has suffered a loss, tragedy or separation, whether physical, mental or emotional. Loss and tragedy are interwoven with the fabric of life just as joy and love form the most fundamental threads of the Tapestry Love that holds and forever binds all of us together. Strength is found in suffering, in pain and in the energy of transformation that is required to move beyond that which has occurred to arrive at a place in your life where you are ready to accept that you can still live, love and be happy despite all that has left your heart. People do not leave because they want, generally, to hurt you. They do not make choices that are designed to bring you pain or to cast you down into a pit of despair just so that they might rejoice in seeing you hurt while they rise up and lord over you. Almost everyone makes the choices that are best for them at that time in their lives. These choices may have an effect on you and your life. But the extent to which you allow the choices of others to become a weight that imprisons and engulfs your heart, dragging you down and allowing you to become trapped in the past, can determine the extent to which you can functionally be said to be alive in the present moment. Dwelling in the past, wishing for times now past, desiring to be anywhere but where you are now, these thoughts can rob you of your strength and leave you feeling extremely empty and exhausted. There is no value in desiring that any other person might have done anything other than what they have done. No control do you have over the actions of others. As such, any desire to change another person serves only to allow your personal power to be taken away from you and given to another. But they cannot do anything with your energy. They have no use for it. It is not theirs to use. Instead it would be best to allow others to be as they are, and for you to be as you are, with no desire that anything in your life should unfold in any way other than exactly as it has. To say that you are Loved is just the beginning of a gargantuan process of release that is so vitally important to the growth and evolution of the world. This process moves so rapidly and so extensively beyond the massive limits that words impose that to even begin to attempt to express this concept with language is laughably pointless. But this process can begin with words, so such abstractions of abstractions have some value and utility, in and of themselves. You are Loved. Infinitely. Just as you are. Nothing is asked, nothing is needed, nothing is required to earn, justify or retain this Love. The love and respect that you hold for yourself can function as a reflection of the Universal Love which is forever flowing towards you. A reflection it will forever be, as it is nearly impossible to retain a perfect love for yourself in the face of all of the lies which the ego will attempt to tell you. But God’s Love for you remains Perfect, as the ego is a lie and God knows nothing but Truth.
