You wanna be a blessing?

Then love yourself and allow God to Love you.

Full Excerpt~

You wanna be a blessing?

Then love yourself and allow God to Love you.

Then you’ll be a blessing, wherever you go and whatever you do. Because as you live that Loving, then the Loving all around you will respond. That which is Loving in all of creation will respond to the Loving within you. And then you’ll have a new relationship with the Divine in all things. And then it’s a relationship of Loving and Oneness. Not a relationship based upon fear and separation. And that’s the difference. That’s the difference.

Isn’t that the relationship we really want? Isn’t that what we’re seeking even in all the relationships we have? So what I’m saying is, you can have that. Just realize the way one needs to go about it spiritually, in order to have that – we have to go into the Spirit to truly have that which we’re seeking and wanting.

In fact, most of us don’t even really know that’s what we want, but the truth is – we want to be One with God. That’s all the soul wants – is to be One with God, and to be in that Loving; to be in that Loving where the soul’s loving God and God’s Loving the soul.

That’s truly all we want, and it’s just amazing all the things we get caught up in, seeking that relationship with the Divine.

That’s what we’re doing in this world as we’re just chasing after things in the world seeking that relationship with the Divine.

And that’s why I said earlier, well once you’ve done it enough, as you get older right? And you get tired of it all – yeah we get tired of it all after a while, and then we start to feel the pressure.

Well that’s the pressure now – that which you’ve been seeking in the world through your own projections now comes back on you for you to handle. So, other ways of saying clearing your karma are; handling your karma, learning your lessons, fulfilling.

But if you understand the “handling” I’m talking about, it is simply an action of Loving and accepting. Loving and accepting, and just of course, forgiving that which you’re having a challenge Loving and accepting. That’s it.

There’s the journey of not only liberation, but the journey of Loving, the journey of awakening.

Yeah we talk about meditation and the Sacred Name of God; it’s all part of it. That action of meditation is The Way Home, it is The Pathway. But realize that as you walk that inner journey within yourself and that inner pathway, these are the things you’re going to be walking through, and coming up to inside of yourself.

And as you go into reaction with it, look at it. Don’t fear or avoid it anymore. Begin to embrace and accept it. Acknowledge it. Everything wants to be loved just as you do. And when you can love all of your creations, even the ones you judge as bad or evil or wrong, well once all those things are loved, you’re going to feel loved as well.

Because in truth, it’s you loving yourself.

If you love all of your creations, you’re going to find all that loving that is you, now returning back to you, and find yourself once again in that place of self love. And that self love really is the Soul. The Soul’s Love.

So, Soul Awakening – Self Love. It’s a journey – and it’s one that is so foreign to the mind, the emotions and the body, because it’s a completely different language and experience. But you, the soul that is listening, hears and understands and will respond at some point when you’re ready.

It’s up to you when you do, and it really doesn’t matter when, other than to yourself. But you’ll do it when it’s time. If you have to wonder, “well, when is my time?” Your time is right now; whenever you want. It’s what you do with it. God truly does give freedom of choice. That’s what unconditional Loving is; there’s no conditions. It’s freedom of choice. When you make those choices freely, is when you’ll discover the freedom that comes with them. And you’ll understand the word responsibility in a much different way – with the ability to respond to the Divine within, rather than a reaction to that which is without.
