What could harm the power and glory of God’s Divine Love? A Love that knows no opposite doesn’t have opponent or ‘enemy.’ This is actually the meaning of True Strength. Having no enemy, the thought of ‘overpowering’is meaningless to Love. For Love can just only look on Love and see Its Perfection radiating Eternally.
The ego is the belief in vulnerability. It’s the belief that something (anything) can be attacked or weakened or destroyed. This type of belief is but a vain attempt to deny the Eternal Union of Spirit purpose is the only choice, Which can be far beyond the imagined world of the temporary. In fantasy, attack seems possible and defenses justified, but what is fantasy but an imaginary game that the sleepy child plays for a minute of amusement.
There’s an occasion when disillusionment comes to your brain which deals in fantasies. And beyond this time an entire 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 planet of perception. In the Great Rays of Understanding is God and Self remembered, whole, unified, perfect and complete.
Such is the worthiness 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. “Once you meet anyone, remember it is a holy encounter. As you see him you will see yourself. As you treat him you will treat yourself. As you consider him you will consider yourself. Always remember this, for in him you may find 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 the way in which and leading a lost flock back to the Awareness of Eternal Oneness. Glory to God in the Highest, and Good Will to all or any!
