What could harm the energy and glory of God’s Divine Love? A Love that knows no opposite has no opponent or ‘enemy.’ Here is the meaning of True Strength. Having no enemy, the idea of ‘overpowering’is meaningless to Love. For Love can just only look on Love and see Its Perfection radiating Eternally.
The ego is the belief in vulnerability. It’s the belief that something (anything) can be attacked or weakened or destroyed. Such a belief is but a vain attempt to deny the Eternal Union of Spirit purpose is the only choice, Which is far beyond the imagined world of the temporary. In fantasy, attack seems possible and defenses justified, but what exactly is fantasy but an imaginary game a sleepy child plays for a moment of amusement.
There is a time when disillusionment comes to the mind which deals in fantasies. And beyond this aspect a complete new world of glimmering light emerges within. The Vision of the Holy One is revealed as the veil of duality is parted, and beaming Rays of Light replace the planet of perception. In the Great Rays of Understanding is God and Self remembered, whole, unified, perfect and complete.
Such is the worthiness of forgiveness. Forgiveness parts the veil made to full cover up the Face of Love. Forgiveness brings healing to a mind fatigued with fantasies. Forgiveness brings gentleness to a world 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 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 see yourself or lose yourself. Whenever two Sons of God meet, they’re given another chance at salvation. Don’t 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 just how and leading a missing flock back once again to the Awareness of Eternal Oneness. Glory to God in the Highest, and Good Will to all!
