What could harm the energy and glory of God’s Divine Love? A Love that knows no opposite doesn’t have opponent or ‘enemy.’ Here is the meaning of True Strength. Having no enemy, the idea of ‘overpowering’is meaningless to Love. For Love can only look on Love and see Its Perfection radiating Eternally.
The ego may be the belief in vulnerability. It is the belief that something (anything) can be attacked or weakened or destroyed svava grace of god. Such a belief is but a vain try to deny the Eternal Union of Spirit, Which can be 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 an instant of amusement.
There is a time when disillusionment involves your brain which deals in fantasies. And beyond this point a complete new world of glimmering light emerges within. The Vision of the Holy One is revealed while the veil of duality is parted, and beaming Rays of Light replace the world of perception. In the Great Rays of Understanding is God and Self remembered, whole, unified, perfect and complete.
Such is the value of forgiveness. Forgiveness parts the veil made to cover the Face of Love. Forgiveness brings healing to a head fatigued with fantasies. Forgiveness brings gentleness to a global made harsh by lies. And forgiveness brings the glad tidings of Awakening, heralding the dawn of Wisdom Eternal. “When you meet anyone, remember it is just a holy encounter. As you see him you will dsicover yourself. As you treat him you’ll treat yourself. As you think of him you’ll think of yourself. Always remember this, for in him you will discover yourself or lose yourself. Whenever two Sons of God meet, they are given another chance at salvation. Do not 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 again to the Awareness of Eternal Oneness. Glory to God in the Highest, and Good Will to all!
