Sharing with you the first day of writing that is very close to my heart – written exactly as it came to me in December 2011. I trust you may find some peace in these words at this time.
‘And so at last we meet again. Patiently have I waited for you to release the chains of bondage that have kept you from realising your true purpose, the very things that would give you joy, and free your heart to give that from which YOU ARE HERE NOW! There is much sadness I know for the struggle and torment it has taken on this journey to your place of oneness and certainty. Do not be afraid to step on to your path for it is already there as an outline awaiting your presence to bring it into the fullness of its being. And you know that each and every one of you has their own unique path to walk, and without your being there we are all the poorer for it. It matters not what other folk do or don’t do. Blessed are those who celebrate the success and abundance of their brothers and sisters, for in the doing of it they remember that they too are receivers of such gifts.
Notice that as you place your foot upon the ground that was laid down for you since time immemorial, that it rises up to meet you, embracing your connection with the truth of your being and the home that belongs to you and you alone. This magnetic force between you and your path is one that cannot be broken or destroyed, cannot be overtaken by another. It is yours and yours alone, so do not fear, do not grasp or clutch at straws or keep yourself beholden to someone or some ideal that shatters your dreams and assaults your joie de vivre’.
Breathe and let the life-force flow through you – the light of love and the light of God – for that is all there is, that is where we came from and where we will return to. Nothing else exists though much is laid on top of this and darkens its presence. And this is how we come to forget that we are that light, that there is no-one and no-thing else to behold. This is how we lose our faith and wander off in directions that do not take us home but keep us from the peace and the sanctity that it offers. Over and over and over again seeking for joy in places where it does not and cannot thrive. This is the bane of your existence today and through all time, and exist you do but without the passion that sustains life or brings to you the rewards of a life well-lived. Every sage throughout time has told you this and still you challenge and ignore it – persuaded by your superior Ego to believe that that which is complicated has more power and more validity than the simple truth of WHAT IS. If you would just BE where you are without fear, without hesitation, without resistance or withholding of yourself and your essence, then your demonstration of trust in what is so, from you, will take you to wherever it is that you need to go. That is the wisdom and the gift of one step at a time.
Be undistracted by the forces around you – keep your attention on what it is that you are engaged in moment by moment, and through the particles of time your picture will unfold presenting itself to you like the ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. Be strong in your purpose and deliberate in your actions. Do not rush that which time itself defines and give no thought to what has passed or is yet to become. For all time is NOW and there is only one of you here and you are me and I AM YOU. Allow! As I have waited patiently for your communion, so too must you now be at ease with the filling of this cup that we share.
Your seeking anything from without your beloved self decries the place from which it is sourced. Listening takes presence; stillness and contemplation on the voice of love, which is the eradication of the fears driven from Ego and the insatiable demands of the abandoned child within. Turn and face that child now and see beyond its frailty and deception. Look deep within its heart and withdraw the face of sorrow that binds it to its past and forswears its beauty in the now. Reach out your hand one to another, you within yourself, whole and complete. In the remnants of your soul lie waiting your felt-most dreams and desires, the longings that you came here with and knew in the depths of your being before your innocence was denied and abused.
The fulfilment of your destiny is not dependent on your past or who you think you are today but solely in your acceptance of the light of God within you and on your willingness to be a channel through which that love is radiated out into the world.
And whether you are a Butcher a Baker or Candle-Stick Maker whatever you do in the world of form that you call your occupation means nothing compared to the spirit you bring to your doing. And fool not yourself that greater happiness would be yours if in the doing of that which brings you abundance you impoverish yourself with the betrayal of your true nature or highest ideals. There is plenty for you all and room to give with grace. Prepare well to receive and embrace your good.
For now, today, we are done. 15/12/11
