Constant change is an aspect of the illusion which is constantly being demonstrated by the “passage of time.” Time, too, is an aspect of the illusion; in Reality there is only Now! That makes no sense to beings in form because you have clear memories of times that have past, and you have ongoing expectations, moment to moment, that show you that in the future certain events will probably occur, and that other, as yet unknown events, will also occur. Time and change are two facets of the same material environment in which you experience your existence as humans in form. Most clearly seen and acknowledged as your bodies grow, strengthen, and develop emotionally and intellectually from infancy to adulthood, then maintain that state for a number of years, followed by the aging process that leads to bodily death and decay. And your history, however far back you choose to look, confirms this.
BUT, deep within yourselves, below the level of your human conscious awareness, there dwells the absolute knowing that life, your life, is eternal. However, because the vast majority of you identify utterly and completely with your bodies, with your human forms, you are therefore unable to access that deep inner knowing, and, instead, accept that you were born and that you will die, believing that your life is the period from birth to death – and nothing more – with the final state being termination, extinction, a state of eternal non-being. Awareness of that seeming truth is frequently denied or ignored because it is a terrifying concept. Thus, however unsatisfactorily your human lives may be unfolding for you, the vast majority of you do not wish to end them. There is within you all a sense of hope that life as a human does have a meaning, a far deeper meaning than plain survival, whether experienced by someone who is wealthy with much in the way of material goods and worldly power, or as one who is impoverished and struggling daily to attain the basic necessities that survival as a human entails.
It is this hope that motivates people to engage with life and with other people, and it can be clearly seen that groups or communities working together can achieve better and more sustainable standards of living than can anyone on their own. This demonstrates humanity’s interdependence. From that realization the logical conclusion that separation is a myth must arise. But, because you feel so separate in your individual bodies, and because you each only experience your own sensations – sight, sound, touch, taste, smell – and the pains or pleasures that arise therefrom, that sense of separation is seemingly confirmed. This creates confusion. Newborn infants have no sense of separation initially, having grown within and at one with their mothers. But, as time passes, and they start to grow and become able to move about on their own, a sense of separation begins to develop, which, at times, is a great joy, and at other moments absolutely terrifies them when they feel an intense and immediate need for attention, and it is not immediately forthcoming.
These experiences during infancy and childhood leave a long lasting impression, often deeply buried in the subconscious part of the mind where they are “forgotten,” because, if they are remembered, they can cause intense emotional pain and turmoil. But of course they are never forgotten, and now, as your awakening process accelerates, they are rising unbidden into many people’s conscious minds, alarming them as that buried or denied inner turmoil demands acknowledgment.
Acknowledgment and release is the way forward, it is the way to disarm these powerful feelings by becoming fully aware that they are caused by memories, and that the time in which those those feelings occurred has passed, and that the painful event or situation is over, and that there is no pain now. Accepting and acknowledging that allows compassion for the hurt self of that time to be comforted and healed, and also allows compassion for the perpetrator to arise. Then Love blossoms within, dissolving all judgment, bitterness, resentment, and hatred, so that complete healing of all ancient traumas occurs.
As each individual awakens Love of a magnitude never before experienced in human form fills each one’s heart. The joy, the peace, the compassion, and the forgiveness that then arises is truly mind-blowing, it is beautiful beyond your ability to conceive of in advance. You realize that you are One with Source, and you absolutely know it, from the depths of your being to the peak of your conscious awareness in this endless now moment. It is an everlasting experience in which any thought of separateness, unworthiness, or inadequacy of any kind is totally dissolved because, by being and knowing Yourself to be One with Source, no limiting thoughts can arise.
As One with Source, as each and everyone is, there are no limits to your creative abilities because, at the moment that God created you He endowed you with all that He Is, He created you like unto Himself. From the moment of your creation you are able to create as He does, you are beings without limits of any kind because you are perfect beings; you are the energy field of infinite Love that is Source, Mother/Father/God, All That Is. God is Perfect, He has no blemishes, inconsistencies, or imperfections of any kind because that is what perfect means, and nor do any of you, being inseparably One with God, always!
The perfection that is Source is infinitely joyful, infinitely peaceful, infinitely content, and so are all of you because there is no other state, and thus you will awaken into complete and unshakable awareness of this divine and eternal Truth. Joy is your destiny because it is God’s Will for you, and it is also, of course, your will because you are in total agreement with God in every moment in the Unity that is that perfect and unchanging state.
Your loving brother, Jesus.
