At night, I tuck you in. And in the morning, I awaken you. Feel the comfort I give you, for I wish you to have it. It is good to know the Source of your comfort, even when you have only an inkling. An inkling will do you well. At atom is only an inkling too of the Greatness it is.
I tell you to love, and yet We cannot define love. Love is so vast, beloveds, it defies description. Let Us talk a little about love, what it is and what it is not, and how it appears in different lights. It is natural to love. It is natural for a baby to love. He doesn't know the word, and he already loves. It is natural for the mother to love her baby. It is unnatural not to love.
You don’t have to look around every corner seeking safety in one form or another. Be done with the idea that you are in jeopardy. You don’t have to put your fisticuffs up. Have you had the idea that you have to protect yourself and your rights on Earth at all costs?
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.
It matters not so much what you do. What matters is your state of mind as you do it. Rather your state of heart. You could do everything magnificently, but if your heart and what you say or what you do are not aligned, your act belies itself. Your state of identification is not hidden. Anger will be known. It may sneak out on tip-toe. It may be smoke escaping, but anger, so long as it burns within you, will override your best presentation that tries to say otherwise. Trying to paint a picture of love is a poor painting. When you feel anger and you answer sweetly, illness forms.
Have I given you too many things to do or not to do? Of course, all
guidance I give boils down to love, so, in actually, there is only one
thing I ask of you, and that is to love yourself. You cannot love
others more than you love yourself. I speak of loving and not
attachment, beloveds. I speak of loving yourself and not holding
yourself for ransom, as it were.
Instead of thinking so often about what you are unhappy about with yourself, will you think of how happy you make Me? You haven't thought that I was unhappy with you, have you? I am very happy with you. It is a good thing that I do not see with your eyes, or I would be down-hearted too. Fortunately, I see with My big eyes of love.
If you are an angel, it is good that you know you are an angel, for then you know your purpose. Then you know you are not on Earth for yourself alone. You are on Earth to do as angels do. What do angels do but serve?
