To thine own heart be true. Where does your heart leap to? And where does it fall down from? And, yet, do not jump to conclusions as to where your happiness lies. Give yourself breathing space. Find the level of your heart. Where does it like to be? If your heart were a bird, what tree does it like to sit on? What note does it like to sing? Deeper than deep, where does your heart's happiness lie?
You have had wonderful moments in life. You have had moments of supreme joy, and you have had days and weeks when you were content. At these times, whatever troubles you may have had, you dispensed with them for a while. Your attention was on joy rather than discontent. How powerful are your thoughts.
Hear My heart. Read My heart. My heart is speaking to you. My heart will tell you stories of such magnificence and love that you have until now only dreamed of. I speak to you of love vast, and I speak to you of love expressly destined for you, addressed to you, wrapped for you, love unfolding, ever unfolding, ever cascading upon itself, and landing at your feet.
Hello, Beloved. How are you today? What are you up to? And do you think of Me? Do you think of Me brightly, the way you embrace a summer breeze? Will you play with Me today? Can We have fun? Can We be unserious? Can We choose delight today? Can We let go of seriousness? Can We play as if We were Beings of Light?
I bequeathed you to the Universe, and now you bequeath yourself.
I gave a gift, and so it is given. I handed you over, and now you serve. What a blessing it is to serve. I serve you. And now you serve others. You serve others in service to Me, and so you serve. I gave you in service, beloveds. I gave My heart to the world. I gave it freely. I gave it in the form of you. I did not make conditions when I gave you to the world nor did I make concessions. There was nothing to concede. You might say that the need for you to give love is a condition, and that’s partly true in that love is a condition for your happiness. And yet, as I gave you life and presented you to the world, I also gave you the freedom of choice. You can love now, or you can love later. Whatever you do or not do, I do not hold it against you. I don’t hold anything against you, beloveds. I hold everything for you.
Beloveds, I am not Santa Claus. Do not think that you can make a
list, and that I will deliver everything on your list even if you have
been very good? I am not going to give you a shiny red fire truck or an
El Dorado every time. These are for you to deliver to yourself.
Open your heart the way you open a book you love, not as a check-book, wanting to know your balance. Your balance of love is full. There never can be a debit. This is what you must know. Your heart is full of love. Perhaps you have been looking for love in other hearts before your own. It doesn’t matter how much or how little other people love. It matters how much you love. Stir love in your own heart. That’s what I’m trying to do – awaken the love in your own heart so it pours out and claims the universe and all its inhabitants as its own. This is your heart I talk about. It is your heart that I ask you to discover and to open up the way you would a door to the beloved house you were born in.
From the Vastness of the Ocean come waves. Along with the waves from the Vastness of the Ocean, come sailing vessels, come logs, comes bilge. No matter what drifts, it drifts upon the same Ocean. Sweet treats and sour fruit ride on the same Ocean. There is nothing else for them to ride on.
When you spot them, they have come to the surface. The surface results from a depth. There would not be surface if there were no depth. Water is taken from a well or a spring or a tap, yet water comes from deeper than that. There is the ultimate Source as well as the perceived.
