You like it when you hear stories of heroes. You like it because stories of courage remind you of My heart. Courage does not come from the individual. It comes from Me.
Courage is your heart speaking My own, just as kindness is.
It takes courage to be kind. It takes kindness to be courageous. Heart leaps over heart. Heart wraps itself around life. Heart serves Me. That is all it is. It is not another that you are serving. It is I you serve in service to another.
All kindness is to Me. All courage is from Me. To and from are no difference. It is of Me you sing.
It is good to remember Whom you serve because then you are not caught in fragments of life but in wholeness. Wholeness is where you belong. You do not belong in fragments.
You keep yourself whole when you serve Me. You fragment yourself when you think you serve individuals alone. It is easier to serve Me than it is to serve this one or that. You know My beauty. You do not always know the beauty of another.
Christ saw beauty because he served Me. It was too little to ask him to serve only man. No one can do it or do it for long without Me. Yet the entire picture of Me is presented in one act of kindness to any one man.
How could it be otherwise when I am the All in All?
And yet, do not mistake an individual for Me. I am revealed in the individual, but it is not the individual that you give yourself to. You give yourself to Me, the Founder of Giving. You give yourself to Wholeness.
Consider Me the Pot you ladle love into. You do not ladle Me just into separate bowls. You ladle Me into from where I have come, which is the same as from where you have come. You do not merely ladle Me into where I go. You return your love to its Source. You replenish Me, I, Who need no replenishing.
You need your replenishing of Me. It is My cup you need to overflow. But, of course, you cannot overflow it. It is from heart to heart that your love flows out, but it can never flow over. It can just flow and flow and thus renew itself. Your love can see itself flowing hither and yon and come to know that there is no difference between hither and yon because all is flow, and flow is an intermingling of Oneness back to Me.
Who can follow the direction of a heart? All hearts flow to Me, albeit through circuitous routes. But it is good to know the destination of your heart because such knowing completes your sense of Oneness.
What has been loaned to you, you return. What you have received from My heart, you give back. In that motion of returning, your heart is flooded with more than you can give by yourself. It is your very act of giving back that replenishes you. It lets you know Who you are and from Whence you have come. This little service to Me is your heart's content.
You are not content unless you give back to My heart. Only My heart is big enough to fill yours. No individual can fill your heart enough. They cannot keep up. But I am ahead of you. It is nothing for Me to fill your heart. I am a Filler of Hearts, and I fill yours with Mine. And you fill Mine with yours.
