What could harm the energy and glory of God’s Divine Love? A Love that knows no opposite has no opponent or ‘enemy.’ This is actually the meaning of True Strength. Having no enemy, the thought of ‘overpowering’is meaningless to Love. For Love can just only look on Love and see Its Perfection radiating Eternally.
The ego could be the belief in vulnerability. It is the belief that something (anything) could be attacked or weakened or destroyed. This type of belief is but a vain attempt to deny the Eternal Union of Spirit, Which will be far beyond the imagined world of the temporary. In fantasy, attack seems possible and defenses justified, but what is fantasy but an imaginary game a sleepy child plays for an instant of amusement.
There’s a period when disillusionment comes to your head which deals in fantasies. And beyond this time a complete new world of glimmering light emerges within. The Vision of the Holy One is revealed because the veil of duality is parted, and beaming Rays of Light replace the entire world of perception. In the Great Rays of Understanding is God and Self remembered, whole, unified, perfect and complete.
Such is the value of forgiveness. Forgiveness parts the veil made to cover the Face of Love. Forgiveness brings healing to a head fatigued with fantasies quantum forgiveness. Forgiveness brings gentleness to some sort of made harsh by lies. And forgiveness brings the glad tidings of Awakening, heralding the dawn of Wisdom Eternal. “Once you meet anyone, remember it is just a holy encounter. As you see him you might find yourself. As you treat him you’ll treat yourself. As you think of him you’ll think of yourself. Never forget this, for in him you will discover yourself or lose yourself. Whenever two Sons of God meet, they’re given another chance at salvation. Do not leave anyone without giving salvation to him and receiving it yourself. For I am always there with you, in remembrance of you.
Thank You God for opening the way and leading a missing flock back once again to the Awareness of Eternal Oneness. Glory to God in the Highest, and Good Will to any or all!
