Know God for Yourself
What is upheaval? Upheaval is the sense of Life’s moving too fast for you. More Life coming at you than you would like to deal with. Too much multi-tasking for you all at once.
Sometimes you would postpone Life if you could. You would retreat if you could. You would choose a pause button, a back button, or, best of all to you, a fast-forward button where you could have a sneak preview of the future. How you long to be briefed and have reassurance.
My Word isn’t satisfying enough. I say all is well while you may see mayhem all around you. The unexpected happens. You see danger. You see all possibilities of pain and loss, and you fear all the possibilities. The possibilities strike you as outrageous, for you live in the fearful illusion of time. I could tell you that time is not real until I’m blue in the face, yet time spins its web before you, and you get wrapped up in time.
At this current moment, Eternity and Infinity are not your main interest. Later on, okay, you will try to figure them out. Some other day you will. Some other day, you really will.
Anyway, you haven’t been able to quite catch on to Infinity and Eternity. You say that you are focused on the moment, yet that is not really true. If you were focused on the present moment, you would not be so familiar with fear. You wouldn’t live with fear so close by your side.
Okay, you don’t expect to escape from death this time around in the relative world, yet must you have death hanging over you as if your death were imminent and ready to strike? Look, you feel death looking over your shoulder. Death hangs around. Death steps lively, as it were. As you see and feel it, death follows closely upon your heels while you don’t see Me watching your back every moment. You may tend to focus on all the unwanted possibilities than on any of the desirable possibilities. As it is, you are out of breath in your attempt to avoid danger, as if your concern actually protects you. Of course, your concern sabotages you.
Yet Life has a way of perpetuating itself and making you move forward – ready or not.
Not all of Life is up to you, beloveds. This isn’t a great revelation. You may be used to not having
your breakfast toast the way you prefer. Or you can stub your toe. You can be late. You can be early. You may miss breakfast altogether.
At the same time, unknown to you, you and your Life may be right on schedule.
One way or another, Life will reach you. It is not for you to rush ahead and anticipate dangers. If you must anticipate, anticipate the joys waiting in the wings for you. Look forward to Our Meetings. Look forward to your awareness of Our Meetings. The Truth is that We meet all the time.
My beloved sons and daughters, you have some blank spaces in your hearing. Otherwise, you would know Me. Knowing Me would not be a matter of trust. It would be a matter of knowing, as close as knowing what fresh air is like on any clear day or what sunshine on your skin feels like or what a glimpse of the night stars looks like and beams to you.
I AM in every pulse of your heart. I wake you up in the morning, and I put you to sleep at night. I AM the Impulse of Love in your heart. I AM the Power of Your Life. You are forever and always My Beloved. You are My Self, only, right now you are encased in a human body. This does not have to mean, however, that you are limited. I am Unlimited, and so must you be. And here We are, stepping out onto a new adventure.
