2-31. The time is Now. Nothing stops you from returning to God. Release all doubt and be lifted up towards the perfect Love that created your Soul.
The correct time to leave behind all that troubles you, attempting to scar your mind with difficulty, pain, loss, regret and despair… is now. There is no other time that will be the right time to return to God and to accept the Grace and Light of Love other than now, for only in the ever present now can you find the courage to accept that the Light of Love is already available to you. You will not find this in the past, for the past has already fallen behind you, a concrete structure of memories and certainties, now solidified into the structure that it will hold for the rest of time, both inalterable and unchangeable. You will not find this grace to accept the Love of God in the future, for the future continuously unfolds in front of you, a magnificent array of possibilities endlessly swirling, indefinable and unstructured, containing all that can be as well as all that cannot ever transpire. In between these two continuums is the present, the ever changing moment that unwraps the presents of the future, altering them into the final rendering that they will become and condensing them from an enormous cloud of possibility into a single strand which constitutes the thread of your life. You have a choice in each and every moment, an opportunity to change or a decision to remain the same. This is not to say that you are forever condemned to endless alteration at each and every juncture of your life, for certainly you do not need to transform yourself constantly, never remaining the same for any period of time at all. It is quite acceptable to dwell in a certain pattern or mode of operation for as long as that function has value for you. But when the time comes to become more than you were, you will find that accepting this new energy will have much greater value for you than simply electing to remain entrenched in your current perspective. There are a great many stages that your life will pass through, each offering new lessons in Truth and Light. The Path that you walk, back to God and back to Truth, may require a great many different lessons, challenges, tragedies and triumphs before you find yourself drawing close to the Light of Love is both your origin and your final destination. Simply because the events of any particular day do not appear to offer much to teach you, do not assume that nothing has transpired that failed to contain Truth, for the opportunities to find that which is larger, greater, higher or better in almost anything that occurs in this world are nearly endless in their scope and interpretation. Even the smallest of events can contain within their presentation lessons in Truth that can transcend all that this world appears to be, offering to you a glimpse of Truth wrapped in a tissue paper thin layer of ordinariness that requests only that you look beyond the commonalities of daily life to find the supreme certainty of God’s work. These little gifts, these messages of hope and Light and Love from God to you are ever-present, swirling around you like a hurricane of Truth, offering all that you have ever requested in an endless variety of alternating patterns, waiting only for you to open your eyes to Love and to see beyond the material universe to the underlying structure that is ever present and completely pervasive. Doubt will hide this from your perception. Fear will blind you to the Love of God, for fear looks towards the ground to see the Light of Love, a proposition that can never truly hold any utility for you or for any other Child of God. What is there to see of the beautifully perfect sunlight streaming from our star when you refuse to turn your gaze upwards, towards the heavens that tower above us all as we walk upon the face of this world? In the same manner, to look for the correct time to return to God and to accept the Truth that you are Loved at any time other than just right now, in this moment, this perfectly complete instant of time, is a meaningless proposition that contains no value whatsoever for you. There is nothing that could ever stand between you and the Grace of God. However doubt will serve you very poorly in this regard, providing you an endless litany of reasons why you should think that perhaps you are undeserving of the Love of God, for any of a huge variety of meaningless reasons, constantly offering pointless rationales that do not contain even an iota of Truth. This is not to imply that the release of doubt and the acceptance of Truth will appear to you to be a particularly easy or simple process. Generally it is not, for doubt has great tenacity. It will not readily yield to your requests – rather, it will attempt to retreat and then return in another form, endlessly reinventing itself, offering new and ever more devious ways to circumvent your desire to release it back to the nothingness from which it first arose and took root in your mind. Doubt is not to be conquered, for all that is not real cannot simply be driven from your mind. That proposition is equally as meaningless as attempting to catch a shadow with your hands. How can you grasp that which is unreal? How can you hope to isolate something that is merely the absence of that which is actually Real? Doubt is not to be fought and conquered but rather it is to be released, constantly given back to the dark and illusionary forest of the ego’s madness. Each time that doubt arises, recognize it for what it is and then offer it back to Love, so that it might be dispelled in the Light of Truth. There is nothing that you can do that will alter the Judgment of God. You have already been found worthy of Heaven, for your heart is Perfect, just as God Created your Soul in an inalterable reflection of God’s Perfection. Created by Love, you are actually Love Itself, an endlessly renewing waterfall of joy and peace, offering only that which is Real to yourself and refreshing the waters that feed your waterfall of spirit endlessly and without any effort. This is your True Nature. Much may appear to separate you from this Truth. Much may be offered by yourself or others that appears to stand as irrefutable evidence that you could, in some bizarre way, be unworthy of the Love of God. Accept none of these ideas, for they are consistently and eternally devoid of Truth in any measure that can have any true meaning. The weight of your soul is governed only by the extent to which you desire to believe that you are being dragged down by the lies of the ego, covering the Light of Love that is forever available to you at the center of your heart. Release all that attempts to drown you in the ocean of the ego’s darkness, instead arising again and again from each and every challenge you face as the beautiful spirit of Love that you actually are, now and forever. Always and forever, this will occur in the now, not in the past and not in the future. No barriers exist to prevent you from Returning to Love and accepting the Peace of God as your own peace. All that appears to stand between you and perfect happiness is only the darkness that you have accepted in place of the Light of Love that shines from the Heart of God to you. Look again with corrected perception and you will know that you were never bereft of the Love of God. It has always been merely your choice to accept anything less that your own perfection that appeared to make it possible that you could in any way be unable to Return to Love instantly and without any effort at all.
