Let God In

In the darkest of our hours
In the ever changing light
Let God’s Love embrace you
Let His guidance be your sight

Among all the struggling souls
On this world and the next
Let God’s Grace restore you
From all things hexed

There is within our being
A light that shines forlorn
Waiting for the wisdom within us
To be nurtured and reborn

In every ounce of trouble
There’s a clue to who we are
Leading onto greatness
That’s so near and yet so far

I invite the ever present
I invite the yet unclear
I invite the many masters
To stay close and to be near

Let’s kick this evolution
That we all can feel is naught
Not conducive to the outcome
For which we have been taught

It’s just a fleeting moment
It’s coming to that place
Where we can all delight
In all things that we face

Face off bad emotions
Kick them firmly out the door
Don’t let them keep us bounded
To things we want no more

Let us prepare the welcome;
Realise our sin;
Put a smile upon our dial;
And Let God In!

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

A TINY LITTLE THING CALLED ‘LOVE’

Hello family

This message is about love.

As we see the world evolving we see many unloving things happening in our experience that does not give us the feeling of being loved and cared for in a way that God meant for us to be when he created our souls; and, through his laws, allowed the release and cherishing of us to this earth-based environment.

This kindergarten has become infected with the most vile of viruses – that of self-involvement, self-reliance, hypocrisy, judgement and lies.

There is little of the love, truth and humility that was desired for us; and God-reliance seems an impossible position to take.

How can we trust such a harsh and punishing father who, we think, will allow for slaughter; infestation of diseases; and immoral happenings that we have almost become numb to in our daily lives.

Some live it harshly, and, if we’re lucky, we can watch it through our vantage point as spectators of the nightly news.

Christine Leinonen (in the clip below), the mother of a missing person – at 4.45 – makes a heartfelt plea to us to ‘please, let’s just get along’ after the senseless slaying at an Orlando nightclub the other night.

Just the tip of the iceberg to what is happening all over our world; and is an attempt to make us aware of a world that is struggling with our demands and prejudices.

We feel comfortable with the lie; the truth is too hard to feel our way through. Truth offered in love and compassion for who and where we’re at can be as revolutionary as anything we can imagine; and a good place to start.

The truth is we are those things that we are learning in the Kindergarten of our existence. We are self-involved; hypocritical, judgmental and we tell lies. We also use denial, justification, minimisation, excuses and will not take responsibility for our actions.

I can hear you scream : that’s everyone else, not me! Not even a little bit? Do you sometimes question the value of another person and their opinion; do you sometimes feel that of yourself, even?

Do you think of love as truth? What is love to you? Is love the ultimate goal? Is there love in every interaction that you make and every thought that you think? Is love a barter? Is love a gift? Do you expect love? Do you demand love? Do you know how to love? Why do you bother to love? Should you be loved? Do some people not deserve love? Should it be deserved? Do you need love at all? Is it better to be loved or to give love? Can you conceive that you can be loved unconditionally? Is love a condition to be in? Are there levels of love? Can ‘unconditional love’ make you unappreciative and ‘spoilt’? If you do something that is ‘wrong’ – either from God’s perspective or society’s – does this mean that love should be withdrawn from you? Is there always a way back to love from any condition? Can love and judgement exist in the same place? Can we be shown the way to love? Who can help us with love? Can love change the world? Is there a better solution than love…. for the whole world? Is it possible to make every decision one that is made in love?

If these sharings about love make you feel resistive, uncomfortable or angry, do you know why? Or is it God? It’s not the love that makes us feel those things, it’s God. Again, I ask… why? If God is love…. or, if God doesn’t exist at all…. why? Seriously, why? It is something we all need to ponder.

The love that we want to see in the world starts with one person at a time; and is the virus, or ‘cult’ that we want to spread as rapidly and vigorously as we can manage – and we can manage much more than we give ourselves allowance to do.

With all my love. – See, there’s a lie right there. I want to say ‘our’ love to represent the spirits sitting with me who also desire to share this message, but I say ‘my’ love to appease you all. Worth thinking about, don’t you think.

Send in the straight-jacket!

How to build trust in prophets and prophecy

An extract from a conversation about chapter 14 of ‘Through the Mists’ with Jesus and Mary Magdalene . ‘Through The Mists’, Chapter 14 – The Relationship of Sleep to Death

[01:36:29.23] A.J.: Of course, it’s a matter of developing trust, isn’t it? So, for example, if somebody tells us twenty-five things that are right, then there’s a chance that twenty-six things that they tell us might be right too. If they tell us in such a manner that is driven by love, and we can feel the love, then there’s much higher chance that the next thing they tell us will be true. If they tell us twenty-five things that are right, but we feel a feeling of anger or rage or other negative emotions from the person who’s telling us, then there’s a chance that we’re being manipulated through the telling of Truth. If they’re telling us the truth to make us feel good about ourselves to feed an addiction, there’s a pretty high likelihood that there’s something wrong and amiss with the person who’s telling us the Truth. And that applies whether they’re on the earth or in the spirit world. So, the key is going to be, the fruitage of the person. If, in the end, the prophecy turns out to be true, as he points out, then, of course, he was a true prophet. And, by the way, people who want to influence us negatively can be true prophets. It’s like a person coming to tell you the Truth about something, just to hurt you, even though it is the Truth. You can feel if you are sensitive – and this is what he’s talking about and referring to when he says : like every other gift of God, this requires a most careful development and education. What he’s talking about is the gift of God’s to be able to sense the feelings of other people. This is a beautiful gift of God, and it actually helps us determine greatly a person’s intentions. If we can truly feel the feelings coming from another person, we will understand why they are saying a particular thing to us; and if we understand why, then we will know who we can trust. If they are saying something to us out of rage, anger – even though it’s true – then we know it’s not fully trustworthy because the spirit in which it is delivered is untrustworthy. The spirit in which it is delivered has errors in it. If, though, it’s given in love and consideration and kindness; and respect for our free-will; and it’s still delivered to us; and it turns out to be true, then it’s highly reliable and something we can work with in our future.

My take on Purple Rain

Living blindly
Causes pain
If I could only see you as God sees you
Joyful in the heavenly mists
I want to see you basking in God’s Glory
Always near
As dear friends
Respecting choices
And rejoicing our love
Life is a chance for changes
Reaching for our perfection
That means you too
Let your soul be your leader
And treat it well
It can guide you to the heavenly realms
We all can reach out to the purple reign

Purple Rain lyrics

My poem ‘Look Deep’

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.
