2-56. All the Love you have ever given or received has been Shared with God. By being loving you expand the entire Universe. Your Gifts of Love are invaluable.
It is completely understandable to assert that the love that you have either given or received has been shared solely with yourself and the person that loved you, or the person that you loved. But that is not the case. Because God is Love, all of the love that is experienced in this world, in all of its forms, regardless of whether it is fully Given, completely received, or simply offered without recognition or understanding, is absolutely Shared with God. This Sharing is an inevitable consequence of the Nature of God. God only Expands, forever becoming larger and greater with each Child of God who finally elects to set down their dreams of littleness in favor of the Light of Love. There can be no contraction, reduction or dissipation of God or of Love, for Love is as Eternal as God is Infinite. That which is Infinite can never be understood by the mind. It will boggle your mind, attempting to spread its currently limited nature out over a space so vast that your mind will become horrifically stretched and you will likely feel great pain in attempting to hold a concept of Infinity inside of a mind that you - at this point - still believe to be finite. As such, it is best to simply try to accept that God is Infinite and know that you will be able to Experience this Infinity in stages, gradually Awakening to a feeling, a certain vastness or a sense of all-encompassing Light that will emerge from the center of your heart as you begin to reconnect with the Mind that Created you. Love is the foundation of the Mind of God. Nothing rests below Love in the Mind of God, for it was because of Love that God Created the Children of God, and when the Children of God experience love in any form, they experience a partial connection to their Creator. When you are loving to another, you are loving to yourself as well, for Love forever unites both of you with a Bond that can never be severed, altered, disintegrated or damaged in any way. These loving experiences, no matter the form in which they arrive or the manner in which they are expressed, are Known to God and they are Experienced throughout all of Heaven, which is not a place but rather a state of mind in which the Infinity of God is Experienced and all that is not Love is known to be but a shadow of an illusion, created by the ego in the vain attempt to counter or overthrow that which is forever Eternal. By being loving, with no regard to whether you are loving towards yourself with genuine gratitude for your Creation or loving towards another with equal gratitude for their Creation, you connect to and participate in the Love that was the origin of both of your Souls. How could this act of allowance, this step taken beyond the ego, not be recognized and appreciated by God? Only the ego would dare to attempt to tell you that the Gifts that you offer when you allow Love to flow both to, though and from you could in any way be anything other than Gifts offered to God in the highest. You present to the entire world a Light that can never be truly denied by anyone when you behave, think, speak and act in a loving manner, without regard to whether or not your ego wishes to you believe that the person that you are loving towards actually does deserve Love at all. The concept of deserving is solely the realm of the ego, for God already Knows that all of the Children of God are wholly and completely deserving of Love in all of Its forms, without any regard for the false illusions that they may hold for and of themselves. See them as they are - as Perfect Children of God, now incarnate in this world, perhaps having forgotten all that they Experienced when they were connected to and a direct part of the Mind of God, for their loss was mighty and their fear so very great indeed when they found themselves enrobed in flesh, seemingly lost to God and to themselves. Know their Truth for them, until the wonderfully transformative moment when they are finally ready to accept it again for themselves. They suffer merely at their own hands, offering to themselves a truth that only a pitiful construct such as the ego could ever create, believing themselves to be but the smallest of temporary beings dwelling in a harsh and cold world, for some reason now cast out of the Home of God and destined to wander these lands until the day when they mercifully perish. They are none of these illusions that their egos have convinced them that they must be true. But they will suffer - blindly of course - until they are ready to accept that there might be another way for them to regard themselves and their Origin. They may not be ready, within this particular lifetime, to expand beyond the illusionary boundaries that their egos have established for them. That is of no consequence whatsoever. They do not need to take any steps that they are not yet ready to take. They can simply dwell in this world, believing themselves to be something that they are not, until the amazingly graceful and overwhelmingly powerful moment when they are ready to open their minds to the possibility that they might be more than what the ego has forever whispered to them that they must be. Their expansion is not dependent upon yours. Each Child of God walks their own Path back to God, in their own time and at their own pace. You need not know when they will take the first step, nor do you need to know when their Journey will finally be completed. None of that is of any relevance to your own Path. You are Asked by God to simply Love them as they are, looking beyond all that they believe themselves to be and Seeing them as the Light that they have always been, keeping the Truth of their perfect hearts safe within your mind for them until they are ready to allow this Truth to be theirs as well. Love Given, with no thought of acknowledgment, recognition, appreciation or understanding is Given because it is absolutely deserved, without any concepts of whether the Love you Give is received. Trust that is received by God, if by no one else at all in this world, for with all of the Love that you offer as the greatest of Gifts that could ever be presented to anyone at all, you absolutely expand your heart, allowing your Soul to take another step towards your Origin within the Love that Created all that was, is now or will ever be. What greater journey, what more important task and what more valuable enterprise could you ever believe that you could engage yourself within than to assist in the processes of Awakening to Love that will free both your own mind, and eventually and when the time is right for them, the minds of all of the other Children of God who still remain asleep to the absolute Glory and Majesty of their own True Nature? No other Gift could ever be said to be suitable for them, nor could any other Gift be truly invaluable in all ways in which the concept of value could ever be correctly applied. All that you offer to them that is only Love is Known and Recognized by God. Your Gifts expand your heart, making it ever larger, allowing it to accept ever increasing amounts of Love from God, rendering you a truly Divine vessel for the Love of God and healing all of the wounds that the ego has ever inflicted upon your confused and befuddled mind. Offer Love, Child of God, for Love is all that you - and all of the other Children of God - will ever need to serve as the Light that will Guide them Home.
