How shall an end be brought to such an intractable situation, this predicament that humanity finds itself in? My Answer is found in the silence for this is where My true Oneness is discovered. Here I do not speak of a oneness that is forced on others by adherence to a creed, their membership in a group or nation or an economic class, no. I speak of the intrinsic oneness of all of life, for all that is comes from Me. Why do you divide Me up and separate yourselves according to your various designations? This is a misuse of your capacity to name and discern. Are you not intelligent and loving enough to discern that I Am in all and all that I Am in is good?
You, Christian, hold forth that Christ is savior to all who confess His name and give themselves to Him to be His body in spirit and in truth. Can you not discern that His name is not limited to your understanding of it? Can you not understand that His oneness with Me means that He ministers to all and in many guises and under many names?
You, Muslim, hold forth that there is but one God, that Allah is His Name and Mohammed is His prophet. If this is so, can you not discern that Allah and Mohammed belong to all whether they realize it or not? Can you not understand that not only is anywhere a place of prayer, but every heart as well. That every heart is the first and original place of worship and that into this place within is the primal pilgrimage that all must make? Can you not recognize that every thought and desire is a prayer itself and that fifty times a day (as is seventy times seven) is a euphemism for constantly and eternally?
You of the Jewish faith hold forth that all of Israel shall love the Lord your God alone with all your heart, all your soul, and all your might and shall write His word upon your heart, your head, your hands and your door posts and speak His word to all your children and when you go to bed and when you rise. Can you not discern that Israel is all My people who hold dear My Word and that they include the Muslim, the Christian, the Hindu, the Buddhist, and all people of faith? You shall not exclude anyone from My Grace in your heart for even the Atheist, who none-the-less has faith in the goodness of life, is in My fold. Do not be so arrogant as to think you can exclude those I would embrace.
Hindu, you understand there are many paths to My Peace. Can you not discern that each is on the path even if they know it not? Be you at peace with each of them.
The Buddhist too, you recognize Me as The One Unmanifested. Will you not also recognize as My Children all who would argue their manifest faith with you?
You of the predominate five religious faiths of the world are like the five fingers of My Hand. Go to Your Source and recognize above all that you are one with Me and so one with each other’s faiths. Be free of the desire to convert one who is already in My fold to your particular way of conceiving the path and apply your efforts in expressing Me as Pure Absolute Perfect Unconditional and Intelligent Love to all regardless of their conceptions. They who need your ministry will know Me through your loving acts. Behave in any way contrary to Love and you depart from My Service.
To know My Way, be deliberate with your prayer that is the constant pang of desire that you perpetually feel. Focus it in the stillness of your heart, listen, and My Way for you is revealed. My Way for you is not necessarily the way for all. Each is a unique expression and I Will Work My Word as I See Fit in each.
The four tree-men in your dream do represent the four religions represented by the five institutions you visited the day before. As trees you saw them fighting but all rooted in the good earth right next to each other as fingers on a hand. As men they all looked the same and dressed the same because you saw them as representing Me. I call you out of hiding to shine the light of your soul and help the fighting trees to cease their here-to-fore endless battle and stand in the stillness of My Grace and Love for all.
Let the conviction of such expression of My Love, exemplified by sharing all My Good (the good of the earth and the good of the spirit) spread to all facets of life and cease war forever more.
