Although it is the part of you that can often be the most easily ignored, your Spirit is your source of strength, inspiration and joy. When all else in the material world fails you, when all else has abandoned you, your spirit is always available to you. It is in those times when you lose faith in the material that you can turn to the spirit for guidance. But this means that you only turn toward Spirit when you are at the lowest points in your life. Your relationship with Spirit is most effective when you create a peaceful spirit, one that is in balance with the material. And when you create a peaceful spirit you are able to walk with the guidance of Spirit every day of your life.
Humanity's greatest challenge is to live in compassion, to see themselves and others as they are and to accept every person's divinity and spiritual wholeness as the truth. By living in compassion you see others without judgment or expectations, so no one can disappoint or hurt you. You become your fullest potential because there is nothing to hold you back. When each person does this, the world knows peace because there is no reason for war. Everyone has what they need, so there is no lack. This is all possible when humanity lives in compassion.
You don't see what is always in front of you. You got so used to seeing what you always saw that you no longer see what is all around you. You have been so good at camouflage that you have worshipped it. You wrapped yourself up in what was not you, and you began to believe in your own idolatry. The world is the other god you have put before Me, is this not true?
God said: The sun rises with or without you, yet the sun would prefer to rise with you. It would like you to accompany it. It would like you to walk down its rays. It would like to see your face first thing in the morning. It would like you to rise to greet it, just as the sun rises to greet you. It would like to be face to face with you.
Imagine a banquet spread out before you, with every kind of food you can imagine. Everything is beautifully presented, quantities are unlimited and you can have anything that you desire and as much of it as you want. Before you get to the table of food, however, you must choose the plate on which you will place the food. The plates available to you are in a variety of sizes, from a very small bread plate to a large platter.
I want you. I want you more than anything in the world. Of course, I have you, always have, so then what I want is that you know in Whose Presence you are. This is not a court you stand in as you imagine. This is not a court of law.
