Life is GOOD! There is only Life/Love/Source/God. Pain and suffering, while feeling intensely real, are of the illusion, and will pass. You can ease your pain and suffering enormously by accepting whatever arises and dealing with it in the now moment! That may well sound insane to those of you who are suffering and in pain, but if you truly open your hearts to Love, releasing your attachment to any of your attitudes that cause you pain – judgment, blame, resentment, bitterness, hatred – you will find joy, peace of mind, and contentment. And I can assure you that those attitudes are the cause of your suffering and pain. When your mind ceases to dwell on hurts you have experienced that were inflicted by others, or by yourselves, your pain and suffering will and does ease.
You hold onto pain and suffering by frequently or constantly dwelling on the wrongs others have done you, or on the sins that you yourselves believe you have committed. You know this, because when you are in that mode you feel BAD! Then, when you are distracted from those thoughts by something pleasurable, your pain and suffering are gone, even if only momentarily, before you quickly return to that egoic indwelling state (me, me, me,) of being abused or mistreated.
You established the human condition to experience separation because you thought that to be independent of God would be freeing. But what actually happened was that you discovered that being alone, isolated, and without support was terrifying. However, you had forgotten that your natural state, which is Love, envelops and embraces you in every moment, and so you then started to seek Love quite desperately from others.
You are Love. You cannot therefore find it elsewhere! You may look and look and look, but you will never find outside yourselves what resides eternally within you. You have all experienced losing or mislaying something, have gone hunting for it to no effect, and have become increasingly incensed or anxious only to discover, eventually, that it is in your pocket or your purse. Well, Love is always that close to you! And you can never “lose” It!
You are never alone! Why? Because separation from Source is impossible. However, you can pretend that you are separate, alone, unsupported, lost, and even abandoned. Then, when the pain and suffering becomes too intense, you go within to complain bitterly and vociferously: “If there is a loving God, how could He allow me to be suffering so horribly and for so long?” But with all the noise you are making you drown out the gentle and soothing voice of Love which is forever responding to you when you feel alone and lost.
Once you open yourselves to listen and to hear you do experience a sense of the Love that envelops you constantly, and the more space you make in your human lives to hear the Voice of Love the more effectively and frequently will you become aware of Love’s Presence in your lives.
However busy your lives are with work, family, bill paying etc., it is essential that you take time every day, even if only for a few minutes, to go within to your holy inner sanctuary or altar, and sit quietly with Yourself, the flame of Love that resides there and burns constantly with endless Love for you. You are One with the little you that you experience in daily life as a human, so allow Yourselves to meet each other daily in that holy inner space where the infinite power of Love is always present and ready to empower you. That is the most effective, in fact the only way to find peace and contentment, along with the ability to deal competently will all the issues that arise in your daily human lives.
Truly, you’ve got what it takes to live successfully as a human because you are a divine being, even though you are presently choosing to be unaware of your immense power and divine status. It is not the “me, me, me, me first” power of the ego, it is the calm, vast, and spacious power of the divine being that you are. That power arises within you as you hold the intent to be only loving, regardless of what is arising in your life in any now moment. You are powerful because you are one with Source. Frequently, however, far too frequently, you give your power away to others by seeking to align yourselves with their beliefs and opinions in order to receive their acceptance and approval.
But, as you are very well aware, it does not work. You can never receive complete acceptance or approval from others because they will always judge you and find something, or many things, amiss, wrong, or objectionable about you. It’s a “Catch 22” situation, and you are wasting your time and your energy. Yes, you will get occasional approving smiles of acceptance, but they will always be temporary, even just fleeting.
Your path to sanity, to happiness, to contentment and peace lies within. It always has and it always will. Why? Because you are a child of God created in His likeness and to whom He has given everything of Himself because you are like unto Himself being One with Him, eternally. The human phase of existence is a minor and very short term excursion from Reality into an unreal world of dreams and nightmares that cannot and will not last. So, go within daily and find the peace and the Love that you so desperately desire, It awaits you there constantly to soothe and comfort you by melting away the pain and suffering of the unreal dreams and nightmares that seem to assail you from all sides.
Within is peace, without there is frequent chaos and confusion, suffering and pain, an insane environment in which conflict rules and no one wins. What appear to be “wins” do not last because there is always another who will steal the winner’s crown. Cease chasing fantasies and settle into the Peace of God that lies within you awaiting your acceptance of It. The “Thrill of the Chase” is a false concept that leads you away from Reality and into the miasma that is the illusion.
You can awaken from the illusion, you will awaken from the illusion, in fact you are awakening from the illusion because more and more of you are choosing Love instead of fear, and finding how over-rated fear is and has always been. Go within and accept with joy the Love that calls to you there in every moment. That is Reality!
With so very much love, Saul.
