Last week the writing was researched deliberately for commenting on Christianity and yoga and yet I still wrote it as though it were the true Self doing the talking spontaneously. Am I just kidding myself? I write this material keeping in mind that others will read it, not strictly for my own elucidation. Is it right to write as though true Self, I Am, is speaking when I, the lower self is engaged in a thinking premeditated way in the process?
How else do you think it is going to happen. Do you think that I will merely dictate to you and that you, like an unthinking computer will simply record My dictates? It is not desirable for Me to work and relate to you, My creation, in that way.
You are My Beloved free will Self though most of the time you act completely unaware of this. All that you do either contributes to your awareness of Me or detracts from your awareness of Me, re-member I Am Your Self. When you think and do what detracts from awareness of Me (I Am Pure Absolute Perfect Unconditional Love) within yourself you sense pain in one form or another. Pain is there to indicate that something is off, that something is not quite right, that something needs your attentiveness, your awareness of Me applied to it.
How shall you make yourself aware of Me, your true Self, when you are so lost in the pain of the delusion that you are not what I Am?
With just a tiny bit of faith you apply your imagination to the task. Imagination is the power to use the mind and emotive instrument to remake the thought forms, that hold you in thrall, into what is liberating and saving. It is this same imagination that you have used already to build the thought forms that keep you enslaved to form and in pain and suffering.
In your ignorance you seek liberation from the boredom of painful experience through acquiring material wealth, through entertainment, through romantic delusions (love without intelligence – desire), through sex, drugs, overeating and partying. Through the pursuit of these activities you imagine you will find happiness, but at best it is fleeting, for the painful deluded idea of being what you are not – the form, instead of Me, keeps entering into mind to govern all you do and think.
This is imagination gone awry, misused, redirected from My original intent, to attempt to find love in form apart from spirit. This cannot be, but you continue to seek it out becoming exhausted and discouraged and tired of what you call life, that mere hanging chad of life that is form without the realization of spirit.
Imagination is a powerful tool of mind and emotion (the objective and manifested) that together with stillness create access to intuition and spirit (the subjective and un-manifested). My Original Intent for the faculty of imagination is to give capacity to make manifest what is Unmanifest to the objective form of the human time/space vehicle. When you, with a little faith, bring the creative instrument of imagination to bear on the questions of what is real and what is important to the soul and what is important to life, to what makes life full and meaningful and so fruitful and eternal, such as you do in these writings, I Respond with inspiration and fill you up with new awareness of the reality of spirit and truth. This brings you lasting joy, a happiness that is not from a relationship as in form to form, but a happiness that can only come as a realization of spirit through the form You occupy. Such joy is found in the awareness that You are not the form but are in fact Me, Pure Absolute Perfect Unconditional Love.
You may premeditate what it is you write. In fact I want you to meditate before you write. Be still before you write, but you can have questions too. Research what you question, but be still before you pick up the pen to give an inscription of the imagined answers. I Am in Your Imagination and this does not make Me less real then the forms you take to be so objective. It is the faculty of your collective imagination, as well, that chooses what in form to call objective and real. Do you think what you call subjective is any less real? It is your subjective awareness (spirit) that makes anything in objective form worth scientifically taking apart to understand objectively. It is My (Your) Imagination that has brought all that is into existence from My True Self, The Great Unmanifested.

Whatever my premeditations are and whatever words get put on the page, let the reader and my own self beware, that what is good is always from the One Source and what is not good is always a result of misidentification with form.
Yesterday I went on a tour of five places of worship: a Hindu Temple, a Catholic Basilica, a Greek Orthodox Church, a Jewish Synagogue, and a Muslim Mosque. There was a lecture about each one, the beliefs and customs, and some literature describing the important aspects to each tradition. I was struck by how all had a concept of one God (including the Hindu) and one true religion.
I dreamt last knight of going to a field with something I had made to throw it about with my family. It was raining on the way there but it let up and quit as we arrived. At the edge of the field were four large pines that stood together. As I watched I could see they were literally fighting with each other with their branchy arms for more space to grow. I looked again and found they had turned to four giant men dressed similarly in very fine suits. I was but a pip in comparison to them. They seemed to be calling for me as one would for a pet kitten to call it out from a hiding place. I came to them feeling scrawny and small and I climbed on them and they seemed to have something they wanted me to do.
I wonder about the significance of this dream and whether it is tied to my thoughts concerning the various religions. The question I have been wanting to ask for sometime now is regarding war. Maitreya says we must end war forever more if we are to avoid destroying ourselves and the planet and progress into a future of unprecedented peace and equilibrium. How shall we end war when there are so many who would yet use violence to try to solve strife and end differences between us?
You ask a big question and feel it is so complicated and intractable a problem, this problem of war. The answer though is quite simple. Stop, be still, listen, become aware of the Oneness of all life, under-stand this Oneness through the demonstration of your faith in this Oneness through sharing all that you have and all that you are with all that you meet regardless of their caste, creed, or good standing.
The complication comes from striking out and attempting to wipe from the face of the earth those with whom you disagree. This is love without intelligence, love of the form with which you identify and the desire to keep it pure.
The complication comes from your attempt to work out all the differences between people as though to iron them smooth with the heat of intellect. This is intellect without love and as the various groups try to do this the emotions of indignation and insult arise in those they attempt to change. These, in turn react with the same glamorous idea of bringing all under one banner, but it must be their own banner, which gives others the impetus to retaliate with their own group’s attempt to do the same and convert the first and all others. So it is that the wars of strife among men are conceived and fought to man’s ultimate ruin (if he cannot stop himself) be they religious, economic or political.
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.

What is this good of the earth and this good of the spirit of which You speak?
You. Me. All Our Relations. The Jewel, the heart, the lotus. The lotus is the good Earth and the ground upon which I stand. You, your contemplation, your action and inaction, and your silence are the heart through which I sense and experience My Being. I AM the pearl of great price found freely in the cave of the heart. I Am Mind at its most sublime level, intrinsically good. Body at its most subtle is spirit. When the grosser form reflects the finer this is good. And at its finest, most subtle manifestation Spirit cannot but express the intrinsic good of the still more subtle, The Unmanifest for which you can have no proper name.
This Unmanifested is You, God of all that is, God of every religion,God of every form. Equally, You are the absence of God for the atheist and the presence of God for the believer, because the Unmanifested is infinite possibility, without personhood, without manifestation. The atheist believes there is no God and being unmanifested You do not exist in the manifest world. Yet for the believer in God the Unmanifested Infinite Potential is present in all that is manifest!
The conundrum seems to be in us, the manifested, trying to decide if the unmanifested actually exists which of course it doesn’t because it is unmanifested. This satisfies the atheist and yet the believer in God sees You, at Your absolute purest state – the unmanifested, reflected and refracted through out manifestation which is anything that is not absolutely pure because to be so is to be unmanifested. So You do exist through all that is manifest.
Now the question comes up of what is truly real. Of course all that you, the manifest, can see as real from your manifested position is going to be manifest and so naturally you think that the unmanifested is not real by virtue of it not being manifested. I say to you, however, that it is precisely the other way around. You will find that as you proceed in your search and find mission of Me, you will find that the more subtle forms are the more adept and fluid ones in their ability to reflect My Perfect Goodness and that no manifested form at all unveils true reality. This seems illogical to you for only a truly refined mind and finely tuned soul is capable of approaching the consciousness required to be aware of what is not manifest and so truly real.
What is it to be good?
To be good is to be truly real.
Think about it. Why do you call good good and evil evil? Evil submerges you deeper and deeper into grosser and grosser form. The more deeply engrossed you are in form the more lost you are to any lasting happiness. The more prone you are to unmanaged negative emotions: anger, depression, sorrow, jealousy and pain. The more likely you are to ignore the needs of others and lie and hurt in order to gain for yourself whatever you desire. And so the more blind you become to what is truth, what is beautiful and what is good. So much so that even the idea that there even exists some intrinsic truth, beauty and goodness may be lost to your lack of awareness of the truly real.
This is the danger the atheist faces for they are inclined to look on all that is subtle and therefore subjective as unreliable at best and simply not real at worst. Thus they are inclined to only rely on gross objectivity for all conveyance of what is true, beautiful and good. This actually cannot be done for the subtle and subjective are prerequisites for sensing these qualities. The more thoughtful person knows this and so the atheist will admit it but is not willing to see a universal intrinsic intelligence behind it. This is OK, for intelligence is but another form through which the Unmanifested is reflected and should not be confused with the Unmanifested Itself. Ironically, the atheist’s most prize possession is his own personal intelligence with which he figures out that God does not exist and all the manifest universe is simply a happy coincidence brought about by pure chance!
The believer, remarkably, by casting reason aside, can be even more lost to form than the atheist. The believer can fall victim to thinking that belief is all that is required. Having once made the confession of belief the unthinking and so blind believer thinks that he can now and forever more engage in all manner of form binding activity and so ends up substantially more lost in form than the atheist and as a result morally bankrupt in spite of his professed but empty belief!
Keeping one’s attention on what is good, beautiful and true is the remedy in both cases of the shortsightedness, that of the atheist and that of the unthinking believer.
What you call “good” is whatever it is that will relieve you of the pain that accompanies being in form. This pain is the result of your spirit being pushed down deeper and deeper into form. Whenever you are relieved of physical ailment it feels “good” because you are liberated from that oppressive attentiveness to form that the ailment manifested, or more properly putting it: that the attentiveness to form manifested as an ailment (for form tends to produce for you what it is you, in spirit, attend to – for this is form’s purpose, to reflect and so reveal the spirit behind the form). When someone reciprocates love for you it feels “good” because your attractedness to their form is satisfied and for a moment you are relieved of the tension the desire for that specific form produced. It serves as a release valve while it is experienced but as soon as that experience is over the pressure of form life builds in you more oppressiveness. This is why you eventually turn your search more diligently toward Me.
Having a “good” idea is a thought that in some way liberates you or others from the oppression brought on by being in form. Good ideas range from finding some “good” entertainment for the evening to figuring out how to build a bridge span, or how to go to the moon or cure cancer, or to feeding the hungry and helping people get the skills and motivation to climb out of poverty. Each “good” idea can be defined as an idea that improves one’s lot in form and mitigates the problems of being subject to form life. Each new truly good idea brings one a bit closer to liberation from the limitations of the form they find themselves in. This is so because I Am Perfect Goodness, Perfect Wellness. I have this absolute perfection as an attribute of being formless, unmanifested. And so when you move in My Direction you experience this as good.
The good Earth is the ground on which you stand and there find your bearings. Use it for its intended purpose – the grounding of your desire, the finding of your whereabouts, the experiencing of your spirit, and it is good. Use it as it is not intended – to divide up and claim as your own personal property, to manufacture all manner of meaningless things marketed purely for selfish gain, to make war on your neighbor, and you will find that form life can be very oppressive indeed and will starve you of awareness of real value.
I, My Self, Am the good of spirit, for the more you spiritualize the matter about you by applying the energy of your attentiveness towards Me, the more liberated you become of form life lived for the sake of form, and the more aware you become of what you term heaven – the experience of peace – liberation from the limitations of form by immersion in the waters of spirit.

Nothing good can come from the form I mistakenly so often identify with. Whatever is good comes from the Informing Spirit that the form clothes and makes visible only when this truth is known: all good things come from God. OM Mani Padme Hum, I Am, Amen.
How shall we go about liberating ourselves from the illusion of identification with form and so be able to immerse our consciousness in spirit?
I have already laid out the way many times. It is already written in the world’s Holy Scriptures. I have already sent you many emissaries of My Way. Maitreya, Jesus and many more are here with you again today to lay before you once more The Way to Life in Me. Pay them your attention. You are the one that must trod the path. There is no other that will or can do it for you. You are not saved merely by claiming the name of Jesus as Lord and Savior but by following the example He has laid before you. Many will say Lord, Lord, we did many works in your name, but I will not know them for they did these things not in spirit and in truth but in the falseness of identification with form while in their heart I was not truly invited to be for it was full of egotism and self (form) congratulation.
You cannot save the form. That is like trying to save a photo of yourself as though you were the photo. You are not. You are spirit and spirit is one and does not need saving. Your recognition of this is your salvation. Be free of this illusion of trying to save an image of your self. It is false.
Why are you so enamored with the Royals, with princes and princesses, kings and queens, when your economy is in recession and your world in such dire need? It is because they symbolize Your true status in Spirit. You are of Royal blood. Do you understand? And Your True Vocation is the wise governing of the world, the caretaking of its bounty for the good of all, and the careful management of its resources and pristine places for generations to come.
This awareness is the beginning. Now galvanize it within your awareness by refusing to be dominated any longer by the illusion of being in form. Form has a purpose – to clothe spirit and so make what is unmanifest manifest. Identify with it and you are lost and dominated, imprisoned in the illusion that it is form that is what is real.
I have some simple dispositions for you to adopt and clothe your awareness in. Remember, they are but another form. They are meant to serve You, the Spirit, not the other way around. You have heard of them before and resisted because you identified with them, the form. You are not that. The form is your servant, your arena, your proving ground to test your capacity in spirit to prove Your Self.
“Disposition” defined: Power or liberty to control.
Let there be such liberty for all that justice may reign supreme.
Disposition 1. Healing and wholeness to all beings.
Disposition 2. Truth and beauty to all beings.
Disposition 3. Gratitude and sharing to all beings.
Disposition 4. Complete self control of the form, in mind, emotion and body.
Disposition 5. Complete satisfaction with the forms given you to work with.
These are the violet and crimson, the velvety blue and green, trimmed in gold, royal garments of Spirit. Put them on and wear them with humility, for only the form can put a thing on and wear it. Doing so, however, will bring the form into alignment with the true purpose of Spirit, My Presence. This will only be the case if you do not confuse the Spiritual Dispositions with the material colors and clothing I have just mentioned! Take pride in them and you reduce them to empty form. They must be filled with Spirit which is One and knows no pride which is of the form which sees all in terms of separation. Do you understand that this path is a razor’s edge?
November 20, 2010
It is indeed a fine line we must walk. Many congratulate me on these writings. Those who know me and all my foibles, no doubt, think me hypocritical, though they might not say it. All I can say is that the words are what they are and if they find footing in someone else then it is because that other has already done some of their own work along these lines. If such footing is seen as good then such good comes from the One Source within each of us and this it does regardless of our deserving. It comes to us only because we open ourselves to it and we are willing and discerning receivers of the Good. Let all be unconcerned with results lest we fall from the razor’s edge…or cut ourselves upon it!
What more may be said of Disposition One – Healing and wholeness to all beings?
This is reference to the great commandment to not murder, to not kill, to be harmless. “Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy.”
Jesus, in His teaching, called the Sermon on the Mount, gave a list known as the Beatitudes. Each was a reference to one of the 10 commandments but He put them in terms of the faculties required to carry them out and also made reference to the Law of Cause and Effect. The inference in the above quoted beatitude on mercy is “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. It is with this statement that He begins His conclusive remarks to His sermon on the Laws of Life adding “for this is the law and the profits”.
It is My Law that you shall reap what you sow. This is the law known in the east and increasingly in the west as the Law of Karma. Karma Yoga is the practice of paying attention to what one sows and where one sows it (do not throw your pearls before swine, for instance). If you murder you will experience the same, for if you take the life of another you take your own life in the same instance though you know it not. All are one remember. Only our presence in matter manifestation makes things appear separated. The Law of Cause and Effect therefore is one of inevitability. It is not arbitrary that the Laws of Life are what they are. They are logical and absolutely part and parcel of the One manifesting as the many. Therefore if you take the eye of another an eye shall be taken from you. If you cause the loss of a tooth in another then a tooth shall be taken from you. The Law is absolutely automatic. “Vengeance is Mine sayeth the Lord” is reference to the automatic nature of the Law. No one need take it upon themselves to impose the law on another. If you do, you bring the Law down upon your own head.
Where, then, is there any relief from all the evil that each of us have perpetrated?
“Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy”
Disposition 1: Healing and wholeness to all beings.
It is not by faith alone that you are liberated from this law and delivered from the effects of all your self imposed nonsensical activity (sin). You can not merely accept John 3:16: “For God so love the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” And say “Ha! Now I have eternal life. I can go about my business in ignorance as I always have.” No. This does not work. It is an improper and ignorant use of faith to believe that this is all that is required if “believing in the Only Begotten Son of God” means to you that Jesus took your place in God’s punishment for your sins by death and now you are saved and free to go about your sinful ways no longer subject to the Law.
There are three major misunderstandings in the above outlook.
The first is that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God to the exclusion of all others. The reality is that Jesus is an example of a self-realized Only Begotten Son of God. The source of the mistake is found in the belief in separation. There can be only one God because in the Unmanifest there is no separation. There can be only one Son of God because the Son reflects the nature of the Father. All participate in that Body, or Son, also known as the Christ Principle whether it is realized or not. Thus one is subject to the Law of this one Life. When one person demonstrates His realization of this relationship it is not exclusive. “No one comes to the Father but by Me” is a statement from the Christ state of consciousness, meaning that only by such awareness can one approach the Father.
The second misunderstanding is that by such belief you are now free from the Laws of Life. Eternal life is yours whether you realize it or not. We are not talking about the physical manifest self here for that is not what You are. You are the eternal and only begotten Son of God. This is not the physical form. The form is meant to reflect It, just as the Son reflects the Father. Getting the form to reflect the Son that you truly are is the purpose of being in form and the inevitable laws associated with being in form. You do this in order to manifest Your Self which in turn is a manifestation of My Self in Whom you live and move and have Your Being. The Laws of Life do not go away when you become a self-realized Son of God. In fact you become much more acutely aware of them and learn to live by them. By living by them you find that you are set free of their repercussions and are delivered from the bonds form.
This then is the meaning of “not perishing but having everlasting life”. The third misunderstanding lies in the idea that eternal life is given you based on your belief. Your belief does not make you eligible to receive eternal life, it opens you to the realization that that is the reality of actual Life and that you have it already. The illusion and enthrallment of form gradually falls away until it is renounced once and for all and you join the ranks of the self-realized sons of God whom together are the Only Begotten Son of God, fully realized and aware.
And so…It is, actually after all, by faith alone that you are liberated from this law and delivered from the effects of all your self imposed nonsensical activity (sin). You can merely accept John 3:16: “For God so love the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” And say “Ha! Now I have eternal life. I can go about my business. I am perhaps as ignorant as I always have been but now I know it and pay attention to the Law.”
Why can you say this now and not before? Because now you have a proper understanding of the meaning. You know that the One your faith is in is Your own true Self. You can believe this because you realize that in God there is no separation and that therefore you belong to the Great Brotherhood that is the Only Begotten Son of God. You understand that Life is eternal because the God, the Unmanifest is eternal and that you are part of That. And you understand that liberation from form (from death) is by following the Laws of Life perfectly “even as your Heavenly Father is Perfect”. You understand that following the Laws of Life perfectly means you are free of them and their repercussions. You are free from death for that is of belief in form life. You continue on in form life in humility knowing that it is your ignorance that holds you there. You go about your business detached from results knowing that nothing in form can compare to what you have discovered in spirit, the pearl of great price and it is yours for the taking by faith.
Healing and wholeness to all beings is the fulfillment of the Law commonly known as “Thou shalt not kill” or Harmlessness. In your new awareness you shall not only avoid being harmful, you shall make all men whole. You shall save the planet from destruction. You shall wield the Law, mitigating the effects of eons past of self imposed nonalignment and misunderstanding of how the Laws of Life work. You shall love your enemies, knowing that in so doing you turn them into friends. You shall heal the wounds of disease and maladjustment knowing that in so doing you make whole the physical manifestation of Christ. You shall feed the hungry and share the resources of education and know how, knowing that though it may be the Law of cause and effect that brought another to a desperate crisis, it is the Law of cause and effect that through healing each crisis will bring the world to state of equilibrium, peace and Heaven.
You shall be merciful for you know this is how mercy is obtained. You shall do unto others as you would have them do unto you because you know they are You.
This is the Law and the Profits. May you pay attention to them.
November 21, 2010
Please say more about Disposition Two: Truth and beauty to all beings.
The cause and effect of truth and beauty are found in stillness, quietude. When you are truly still and quiet within you are free of any false notion, of any ugliness. It is lies and deceit and false ideas that produce disturbance, turbulence and noise in the otherwise quiescent, peaceful and harmonious being You are. This is why you have heard that the truth will set you free. In truth there is nothing You need do. Your home is in My Garden. I See to Your every need. You are free but you have squandered your freedom on lies that tell you that you are the form and are separate from Me when actually the form You occupy is merely Your instrument of reflection, of expression, of what it is You are.
This is why the Law of Life commonly known as “You shall not bare false witness against thy neighbor” is another facet of the inevitable rules that must be followed when You take form if you are to avoid being lost. Who is your neighbor? Everyone you meet is your neighbor, everyone you share the planet with is your neighbor, and your neighbor is your Self in merely another vehicle of expression.
Therefore, let there be no deceit in anything you do and you will be able then to obtain the disposition of truth and beauty to all beings. Truth and beauty are the natural state of affairs. They are what is. They are what is in the stillness when there is no ill will or judgment applied. They are what the world resolves into when all pretense is abandoned. There is nothing you need to do to make them into something. When you begin to manipulate a situation to get from it something you want you bring into that expression some degree of false pretence and so turn it from its natural beauty into something ugly and deceitful. Why do you want this? The fully realized understand this law completely and so always only point out what is true and beautiful. Never do they give false witness in even the tiniest aspect lest they fall down the slippery slope of desire instead of love.
People constantly confuse desire with love because they lie to themselves and have been lied to about what love is by those who would manipulate to try and get what they think they want. This is an avalanche of rocky, hurtful, ugliness that truly leaves one wondering how this ever got confused with My Absolute Perfect Unconditional Love.
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness for they shall be satisfied.” This is Jesus’ teaching on why not bare false witness. He says simply let your yes be yes and your no be no. To swear to something implies that you are not always truthful and need to swear in order to hold you to telling the truth. Choose instead to be truthful in all circumstances and to all beings and life is beautiful. It is only lies that make life ugly and that perpetuate evil.
You are in form to literally tell the truth. This is the purpose of form. Let Your form be on purpose and let every form that you construct, be it a thought, a feeling, a word, or an artwork, a job or a business deal, a website or a community, a family or a friendship, be an expression of truth, beauty and goodness. This is the real, for this is what fills Me up with happiness for My Creation, for it is the way I have put all things and this is the way all things that I have put on earth are. Co-operate in truth and beauty and see the goodness that I have in store for you.
You cannot convey truth and beauty to all beings while dwelling on past mistakes, past falsehoods and false witnesses, past lies. Begin in the present moment. There is no other. If there is a lie in the present, see it, know it, look through it, past it to the truth and beauty of what is. Even a lie is the truth when the lie is revealed as such. Hold nothing against anyone. To do so perpetuates the original lie of separation.
Truth and beauty to all beings is My Law, My Blessing. You are the means by which I carry My Blessing into the world. Therefore be glad in this disposition regardless of perceived consequences. The effect of truth to all beings is always beauty to all beings.
