desire

‘Where there is life there is hope’

Good morning this is a wonderful opportunity to rectify some of the beliefs that I have been espousing for some time while I was on earth. Although my intentions were sincere to establish the human condition in such a way that they too could have access to the information readily available in the universe, I myself had many injuries that prevented me from accepting or interpreting this information with the greatest success.

I am Emanuel Swedenborg and I have a desire to now correct some of the misunderstanding that occurred at that time. While  it is true that to enable access to the information one should have an open and clear desire to establish contact with a stream of consciousness that can provide the answers to all questions that you may entertain, we cannot help but be afflicted with many errors by way of our growing up experiences and subsequently at times connecting to spirits who also had not accessed more pure information at that time. Remember that these experiences are in the past and are of no relevance to our lives now unless we choose to make them so. We make all of the rules in this regard, with no exception. Should we desire to continue to blame others and society then that shall also be so. On a number of occasions opportunities are afforded to me to see things in another way and I did not. In each case I felt the impurity of that action yet was afforded the right to see things as I did as this was part of my coming to what I know as source. I have a desire to correct some of those issues now and make more pure the information that I had offered up some time ago.

This is not a small task but where there is life there is hope. Over the coming time I will make an effort to continue to connect to you by way of your emotions when relating to material that you will access. Making use of the comments section of the Swedenborg presentations that you frequent could be such an avenue for discussion.

I will leave you now as I see that you have some things to attend to at this time.

A goodnight message

After many tries at communicating with you in regards to the ways forward from this place of contention, we are of the opinion that more often than not such things as resentment and haste have resulted in an inability to be more focused on forgiveness and love.

Although you perceive current happenings as almost unbearable, they present to all involved an opportunity to experience the emotions that are locked inside and to offer a calling to come together and assist one another by being way-showers of a sort.

Remaining in a place of complete reliance on God’s ability to create for us a universe so orchestrated that no matter where we turn there is always a clue to how to get back to that place we can call home. Truly at-one with the universe and beyond.

Stay true,  stay sure. You know by now we are here, always by your side and witnessing your advancing soul development and applaud your every discovery along the way.

Your desire to lift the current situation for all on earth as well as those who no longer occupy that space excites and delights us. Much work is yet to be done but will only be done in line with the laws and principles which Jesus has outlined and God has provided for us. Very simple yet profound assistance given to all who choose it, as you have done so.

Take heart in the knowledge that, although your efforts may go unnoticed in the denseness of the human observances it is well recognised from our vantage point and also felt as a huge serge throughout the spheres.

Continue to be an inspired contributor to people,  places and things and when you allow for our response we will surely and gladly drop in and offer our thoughts and prayers to add to yours for an amazing achievement, and sit back and appreciate you all over again as you also show your appreciation for us.

Our mutual love is one of the things that will assure our success as surely as night follows day and the tides will turn.

We say farewell for now and leave you with the knowledge that we are truly one with you and your efforts in all earnestness and have faith that your desires are pure and resounding on a grand scale.

Our love to you. Goodnight.

God give me strength

I am writing today, God, weary of trying to understand how the needs of a grown adult are more important than basic care and emotional nurturing of, not only a small child, but also a child with disabilities can be allowed to flourish in my experience. The adult can make decisions on how they choose to live, think and grow while the child is totally at the mercy of the person who is afforded the privilege of assisting them to be the perfect human being that You intended them to be.

There is no-one so damaged that they cannot reach out to you, God, ask for Your assistance and allow for the inflow of pure love and upliftment that will be shared. Of course, we think that this magically takes away all the pain and errors that life has presented to us. The magic is in the experiencing; the magic is in the unfolding; the magic is in the coming to light of all things possible.

But this is a choice afforded to the older wiser beings, not the young. The young must be nurtured and taught to foster their desires and love; they must be led in a way that enables them to express and experience for themselves the organic delights of this world and make their own magic happen.

The ‘responsible’ adult must therefore have the desire to be that person for them. That person who will make sure that their own emotional state is such that they can support them fully in their desires; loving them in such a way that the only influence that will be exerted will be that of assurance in the fact that they are not required to do anything at this time except be delighted and adored; and trust that God’s Laws are here to wrap them in His mighty fold.

I know the process, God. Give me the strength to come to terms with what is happening; help me to plug the holes in my soul that are contributing to my own experience and that of others around me. Make me brand new again in your love; and know with certainty that this earth world is somehow bringing me to that place. That place of understanding; the place of acknowledgement that we humans are the greatest of your creations and able to rise to a level of awareness far greater than we can possibly imagine in our current thinking.

Abracadabra – let me create – an experience of great upliftment that sees this awareness resonate throughout the human intellects and activate the struggling souls of humanity to a place of serene peace.

I thank you for your assistance once again today as I experience your loving warmth permeating throughout my body; soothing and assuring me that, with my desire firmly set to make manifest a world of complete harmony and love, all is well; and all can be achieved if we hold our faith firm and not allow our focus to be diverted. That’s how the magic happens, with knowing minds and the desire to grow in love.

It’s all good.

This was delivered early this morning…. don’t you hate that!

“You are totally totally totally totally fine.

“As you make your way to your perfection, taking the path of least resistance; or even the most resistance, learning and experiencing, engaging your desire to do and be true to your soul’s design, we are here with you every step of the way. Do not think that you are alone in your endeavours because you are never truly alone. We may not be essentially visible to your current understanding, but we do exist in your life. We feel your every emotion, and share in your triumphs as we sit in support of all of your choices- there are no wrong ones, just different ones. They are simply yours to experience. We see how you feel constrained by conditioning that has been a part of your existence up until this point in your life; and how more and more you reach for the answers and decisions that are more suited to your desires.

“Thinking of others before yourself can lead to delays in the creations you crave; and, in the long run, do not serve those you seek to please. Their journey is their’s and such is the nature of humanity; interference can confound and confuse beyond our desires and ultimately cause delays to ourselves and those others you are determined to ‘right’.” Possum

‘Blissful Ignorance’

[00:24:49.27] Mary: Yep. Alright. Again, we’re only a page into the chapter, but he brings up something else that’s quite important. Just there in the next paragraph, he begins to say : Activity is the natural heritage of the soul, excelsior its motto, and holiness its goal; thus their united endeavour had been to arouse in me a great desire to reach out after the ideals which ever lie on before; to realise the fact that the legitimate satisfaction of man can only be achieved when, like the Psalmist of old, he awakes to the consciousness that he has attained to the likeness of God.

[00:25:38.01] A.J.: Mmm. Some pretty important things there, actually. Particularly this side of the activity of the soul. Like, I see a lot of people, on earth in particular, in this state of what you would classify as ‘blissful ignorance’ and ‘blissful desire to remain inactive’; and it’s a very temporary bliss, because nothing really comes of it. No real progress is ever made; and on top of that, many of these people arrive in the spirit world in the hells, because of their lack of desire; and they don’t know anything about desire, in fact. They neither know what it looks like to have a desire unfulfilled; or fulfilled; nor do they know what it looks like to have a desire in the wrong direction compared to the right direction; or in a loving direction compared to an unloving direction. And because they don’t understand desire at all, they sit in places of stagnation for such long periods of time; and they are some of the most difficult people to help in the spirit world, actually. These people who sit in the stagnation; in the desire for ignorance; and the desire for not doing anything, just sit there, hoping that some external force will come to their aid; and it never does. Until they learn the lesson that activity is required on their part before any real change is going to occur.

Discussion about final chapter of “Through the Mists” book group – Segment 1

‘Through The Mists’ by Robert James Lees pdf

Desire for God

Extract from a discussion at the book group of Through The Mists – chapter 11. Part one of full discussion

[01:07:50.03] Audience: (Teresa) That brings me to a question I had about that chapter. About my motivation for seeking God. This is something I’ve thought about before; and I thought : does it matter if the only reason I’m looking for God is so I don’t hurt anymore; or is it I can use it to be more, I don’t know, have more pure desire? Does it matter if it’s just to get out of the pain?

 

[01:11:12.15] Mary: Very much so. You’re wanting from God – as lots of you pointed out, very eloquently – you know, there’s an addiction, actually, you’re wanting to set up with God. And it will backfire (laughter). You’re not going to get far before God’s going to want to confront you with : It’s not going to work, my daughter; you’re going to actually embrace pain in order to grow. What do you feel about that?

(conversation picks up a bit later)

[01:11:41.16] Audience: (Teresa) I feel, and I’m getting rid of that feeling of pain, but it still feels like that’s the driving force behind it; just to be happy; and I’m not sure of the pureness of that desire – maybe not so much to get out of pain, but to just be happy, is that…..

 

[01:12:04.09] Mary: Yeah. Can I put to you a different desire? Rather than desiring to be happy, could you desire to be whole? Could you desire to be all of Teresa? Whether that’s painful or pleasurable or joyful or fearful; and whether that takes you in a direction that you never have gone before. Down a path of desire of creativity that you never thought would ever be a part of you. That’s the sort of thing… that’s the desires we’re going to have if we’re going to have a relationship with God. This feeling that : I’m going to trust you, God; and I’m going to desire to not only know you but to know me. Both desires we really need if we’re going to grow towards God. And right now, me is not that happy; or happy sometimes, but there’s sadness sometimes. And, yes, it’s true, when we really grow in this relationship with God, sadness will be a thing of the past. So, it’s not bad to want joy, you know, it’s not. But if that’s your only….for example, if you want to be happy without being whole, it’s impossible in a true sense. By using the word ‘whole’ I mean to really know yourself; to really embrace everything that’s in you right now, but also the potentials of things, the great things that are in you. You have to be willing to face your fear of those things. You’re not going to have a desire for them : Yep, I’ve got that, you know, because otherwise you’d already be experiencing them. So there’s going to be fears to face as we do that, to embrace everything that’s within us now; and everything that we have the potential to be, that’s also scary sometimes. Yeah. But that’s the kind of desire that will carry you very close to God. So, I agree with what the girls said about being real with where you’re at, and just engaging God in that right now and saying : look, this is what I feel right now. Can you give me truth about this. Can you show me how this is going to work and be beautiful. But I don’t think you’re alone in that feeling, Teresa. I think a lot of people feel that it would just be good to be out of pain; and feeling like there’s a lot of pain. But as we develop humility, we’ll develop the willingness to not only experience the pain, but just experience what God is bringing to us. You know. Good question.

Desire

An extract from ‘Through the Mists’ book group – chapter eight.

‘….if I just experience my desire; if I’m just humble to my desire; and I let that emotional experience even purify my desire ….if you think about it, if you really allow the experience emotionally of what you want, any fear you have around it immediately gets triggered, but also you can kind of feel if it’s a bit icky as well, can’t you? A lot of times you can. Often we shut it down and act it out because we don’t want to feel the ickiness of when it’s out of harmony with love; or when it’s in harmony with love, we don’t want to feel those terrible feelings that Fred felt : Please tell me I can do it; I can’t bear it if I can’t do it. You know, so, this experience of allowing desire really opens us up emotionally to everything, I feel. All of the error; all of the fear; and all of the beauty inside of us. And what I really felt with what Cushna was showing to Fred there is, if we are just humble to desire; and we’re humble to God’s way of the universe acting, then God will present the opportunity for our desire to be fulfilled. And in the way he deems us to be ready.

‘And my experience of that is : Yeah, I think I’m going to do a book group with twelve people in our living room. And then sixty-five of you turn up; and I go : Okay, God obviously thinks I’m ready for 65 people. (laughs) I don’t. I followed my desire and this is what came, I have to trust God on this one because I feel pretty insignificant. And you know, that was the beautiful thing, I wrote in my journal : There’s an interplay between desire and God; and patience requires humility, or it’s enabled by humility; and God sees the best time, and we only need to be ready to respond when He presents the opportunity. So this idea of having to force through the fear and make the desire happen, it’s a lack of humility, isn’t it? We will act when the opportunity is brought to us, we don’t have to push it to happen, we don’t have to be passive, we just have to be ready to respond and be humble to the feelings that are going on.’ Mary Magdelene
