2-51. God may not provide all that you think you want. In Truth, God has already provided all that you will ever need. Faith will help you to see the difference.
What you think that you want and that which you actually want many be so diametrically opposed, so intractably disparate or so incontrovertibly irreconcilable that to attempt to find any method or process within the confines of this world that will allow you to acquire what you want will likely prove to be unobtainable. This may appear to be disheartening, when it is first encountered. You may spend years searching in vain for whatever it is that you believe you want, only to find yourself unfulfilled at every turn, forever bereft of the true satisfaction that can only be Experienced when you accept that all that you need has already been provided for you through the Grace and Infinite Mercy of God. It is not material possessions that you desire. It is not wealth, riches beyond imagining or worldwide fame and adoration that will fulfill you Soul. It is not the devotion of others or the admiration of supplicants, forever chanting your name, that will carry your Soul towards the heavens, releasing you from this mortal coil and freeing you to be at peace at all times and in all situations. What you want is not of this world and as such, it cannot be found in this world. This world is a place of half-truths, a playground of material items which can have a value that is derived from their function but which is a value that can only extend to a very limited extent towards that which is Eternal. Eternity is Eternal. This statement may appear to be somewhat redundant, even to the point of uselessness, but the concept towards which this statement points is of immense value. Eternity is already guaranteed to you, as it is to all of the Children of God, for their Creation was Perfect and they all must remain as they were Created, no matter how many illusions of despair, pain, loss, fear or regret they attempt to layer upon the sanctity of their Origin within the Heart of God. What you need has already been provided to you in your Creation and all that was Given to you was both unique and Certain, Gifts offered because of their Perfect alignment with your individual needs. No two Children of God are offered exactly the same Gifts, for all are unique and all will have separate Paths to walk back to the Heart of God, returning to the Purity of Heaven in their own time and at their own pace, regardless of all that they believe ails, assaults, diminishes or belittles them into the most meager reflections of the Perfection that they are, now and forever. Much will come to pass before you are ready to release all that you have held against the Certainty of God, and all that you experience - all of your challenges, your lessons, your heartbreak, loss, desolation of the spirit, your righteous indignation at the apparently inherently unjust nature of this world will not and do not serve to crush you under the weight of that which you are asked to endure. Rather they offer the greatest lessons in peace and Certainty, for no matter what you will encounter while you remain incarnate and present in this world, all of these experiences will serve purposes so much greater and so infinitely grander than you can possibly imagine that you would be best advised to accept that which presents itself to you, rather than attempting to flee from the challenges that arrive, desiring to hide from the world and to be, somehow but impossibly, safe from your requirement to grow simply because you choose to turn your face away from the next lesson when it arrives in your life. You will never be demolished, destroyed or obliterated by the difficulties that you will face. You will rise above all of them, forever resplendent in your power, for all of the Power of God stands with you when you stand against the forces that appear to desire to topple you, casting you down into a pit of endless despair, attempting to delude you into believing that you cannot, in any way, bravely face and then fully overcome all that challenges you to take yet another step in your personal Path back to God and to the Light of Love that is both your origin and your final destination. Faith is to believe in that which cannot be seen, measured or quantified simply because you choose to apply this apparently blind but actually All-Seeing faith to all that you encounter, knowing that all that transpires, no matter how horrific or seemingly insurmountable, contains within its acceptance and resolution yet another signpost, another Light that is Lit, directing you forever correctly towards the final Light that is the Home of God. Apply your faith without failure in all situations, for you can never fail to find the Home of God - it is forever with you, safely accessible within the deepest reaches of your heart. The Way to go Home is already and forever open to you. It has been and will always be only your own choice to grow or to stay the same that will determine what you will learn or reject from all that occurs that you find to be difficult, challenging or traumatic. This is not to imply that horror, loss, desolation or aesthetic practices should be sought out or engaged upon simply because you believe you can accelerate the pace at which you walk back to God. This is not the Way. Allow all to come in its own time and in its own way, for there is so much more about the processes that are involved within your personal journey that you cannot or do not know that what little you may be cognizant of right now that to attempt to rush down the Path, hurrying yourself along in some blind attempt to avoid unnecessary pain, is truly a fool’s errand. You must be patient and still, allowing all to unfold as it does, without judgment and devoid of fear, for there is a Plan for your Path, a Way and a Truth and a Light that Shines for you and for you alone. This Light was Created for you as it was Created for all of the Children of God, but your part of the spectrum of the Light that is the Heart of God is for you and you alone - no other Child of God can See that particular color, that exact shade of the universal and Complete Light of Love but you and you alone. Do not quail against the fears that attempt to wrack your heart with desperate terror, rendering you numb and unable to continue forward for fear of what next might confront you. Accept all that comes just as it arrives, no matter the presentation or over-wrapping layers that exist only on the surface. There is much more than just your initial impressions of any new challenge, much more to be learned and much more to be offered than what may appear at first blush to be the sum totality of what you are facing today. Have faith, Child of God, for you will never be presented with anything other than lessons in the Perfection of the Creation of God, in all of its Infinite variety, from first to last and from the original moment of Creation until the last instant when Creation finds its Completion within your acceptance of your unique and irreplaceable importance, both to God and to all of the other Children of God, all of whom need you in a manner that is both Infinite and Total. Faith will assist you to See the difference between that which your ego screams are your needs and your true requirements, which are none at all, for all that you need and all that will forever Guide you Home exists already in your Heart, awaiting only the moment when you relinquish all that you seek outside of yourself, instead returning to your center, to find that the Light that will Guide you Home is forever present, asking only that you open your Sight to See that you are already Complete.
