Beloved, I am your spine. It is I Who holds you up. Nothing else can. From the angel kingdom you came. You are not a puppet, yet I hold you up. You are connected to Me, yet you pull your own strings. You stand tall because I keep you erect.
Our connection is reciprocal. It is two-way. It is many-dimensioned, but We shall say two-way. You hear Me, and I hear you. I stand you tall, and you stand tall in Me.
Remind yourself today that you carry Me. Remind yourself that I am within you and I accompany you, as you accompany Me. We are always together. Even when you think We are separate, We are One. We are intimately One. There is no escape from Oneness, beloveds.
Who would try? And yet My children do.
They are like the child who says he can do it himself, even when he can’t. It shows self-worth that you want to take ownership of yourself, and yet We share it. I do not own you, but you and I are One.
Our partnership is shared with the whole universe. We are a conglomerate of One.
There is no one to usurp, beloveds. When you make a business deal, you are making it with yourself. The One God meets as two. Otherness is magnified, Oneness often forgotten. But no longer. Now you know that I am One and everyOne. There is no in-between. There is Oneness.
I am the One across the table from you.
I am the Crowd.
You sit across from yourself. You are all over the place.
Do you love Me? Then it must be that you love the seeming other across the table from you. Where can selfishness exist except in fantasy?
You fantasize that Oneness is not. You fantasize that everyone else is a being separate from you. In that context, you are separate from yourself. Reunite with yourself and breathe Oneness.
You are My One Child that I gave to the Earth. I gave you, My precious child, to savor the Earth and to succor and solace it. In Oneness, no solace is needed. So I sent you to Earth to restore the concept of Oneness, to herald it, to tout it, to make it known and to make it desirable and desired in the world. Desire Oneness, and you will recognize it.
Desire love to reign. How simple.
And so you reign in love, and what is true and has always been true becomes evident.
When Oneness is admired over craft, when cleverness and skill in outsmarting become relics of the past, negotiation becomes giving rather than outwitting. Who would want to outwit himself? There is no one else to outwit.
Courtesy and kindness will overtake the world.
Everyone will hold doors open for everyone else.
There will be no doors! What would be the need of them? There would be no doors to lock or unlock. All hearts will be unlocked. There will be humanity. There will no longer be inhumanity. What is humanity but love? And love there will be. Love everywhere. Beloveds, that is freedom.
You already have the freedom to love, and love is the freedom you seek.
No more constraints. No more constraints on love. Freedom is the release of love. Serfdom is holding love back. Holding back takes such effort. Freedom takes no effort. It only requires love.
What makes you think that it is hard to love? It can only be because it is hard for you to let go of all that has bogged you down. Be present to love, and you are freed from ignorance and miserliness. You are free to love now, so love. Love yourself and love for My sake. We are Love, beloveds. That's what We are, and so shall it be.
