I am in Canada this week, on Cortez Island, at Hollyhock Retreat
Center, for a small-group event to share the messages of Conversations
with God. As I sit here on the plane to Vancouver, British Columbia I
find myself looking closely at the question: Why am I going off to talk
to a handful of people again? What is the point of this?

here I am back home again. It is good to be back in Africa, even with
all its problems and issues. I am still coping with jet lag, which
means I get to go to sleep at about 2 am and I wake up at 10 in the
morning. It's ok, but I hope that my body will soon return to its
There is a house up on a hill.
You can see it shining there, the golden glow from the windows in the evening,
the flickering firelight reflected on the walls; you can hear the laughter from
people sitting at the bounteous table.
What secrets are there between Us? There is nothing to hide. I am your Upholder. Think of what I just said. There is nothing to hide. You have nothing to hide.

Just because you have chosen to walk a spiritual path you will not be free from the emotions and feelings that are part of being human. You will still get angry, be annoyed with people and get frustrated. All of these emotions are normal. What changes, as you move along your spiritual path, is how you process these emotions, what you do with them and how they affect your life. They will not have the same effect on you as they once did and you will learn to choose your emotional responses to situations and even, at times, choose not to respond at all. This is when your spiritual and emotional being is in balance.
What you perceive is your perception. You perceive according to what hill or plateau you stand on whatever and wherever it may be. Quite naturally, you can only see from where you are. You can only see what you can see from your perspective. Fortunately, no matter what hill or dale you stand on, you can increase your vision and, therefore, your perception.
Heaven is available to you at each step of your spiritual journey. It is not a place you go to when you die or a distant reward for your efforts. When you are in heaven you enjoy the peace, abundance and joy that are part of your divine heritage.
