I will step back and let him lead the way.
I’d best, since I don’t know where I’m going, or what would be best!
1 There is a way of living in the world that is not here, although it seems to be. It is through Be-ing joined in an holy, Divine Communion. It is not a religious rite but rather that You are literally in a constant conversation with Your Divinity, also known as Holy Spirit. You do not change appearance, though you smile more frequently. (For this is a happy way of Be-ing.)Your forehead is serene; –there’s no tension held – your eyes are quiet (As You always take Your resting safely; God at Your right hand.). And the ones who walk the world as you do recognize their own. Yet those who have not yet perceived the way will recognize you also and believe that you are like them as you were before. Thus are You become the liason between what You used to think You were and what You now know You are.
Yet do You look same enough to be a help to Your Brothers.
2 The world is an illusion, although it seems real. Those who choose to come to it are seeking for a place where they can be illusions and avoid their own reality. Pure insanity. Yet when they find their own reality is even here, then they step back and let it lead the way. They, that is, who are not hard-core dreamers. What other choice is really theirs to make? Yet many choose to believe illusions. To let illusion walk ahead of truth is madness, but to let illusion sink behind the truth and let the truth stand forth as what it is, is simple sanity. (And also happiness!)
3This is the simple choice we make today. (choosing Sanity) The mad illusion will remain awhile in evidence for those to look upon who chose to come and have not yet rejoiced to find they were mistaken in the choice. Unfortunately, there are billions of relentless Dreamers. You might say: hard-core! They cannot learn directly from the truth, because they have denied that it is so. They won’t listen, so then They need to have a good example. And so they need a teacher who perceives their madness, but who still can look beyond illusion to the simple truth in them. Because S/He already knows the Truth within Her holy Self, or, perhaps His Self. Truth is not restricted to a gender.
The One Son overrides all old beliefs of foolish Dreamers.
4 If truth demanded they give up the world, it would appear to them as if it asked the sacrifice of something that is real. A thing that seems to be unbearable, at least to ego; for the world is but ego ‘creation’; yet really it is nothing more than a blatant fantasy. Many have chosen to renounce the world while still believing its reality, and they have suffered from a sense of loss and have not been released accordingly. They insist to see themselves as martyrs. This point of view leads One not to waking. Others have chosen nothing but the world, and they have suffered from a sense of loss still deeper, which they did not understand. For They expected satisfaction from the world, and could only end up extremely disappointed.
“Such is life,” They might say, understanding Life that is God, not even a little!
So thinks the ego, not looking higher, or even deeper
5 Between these paths there is another road that leads away from loss of every kind, – Heaven here and now is its focus and its destination! – for sacrifice and deprivation both are quickly left behind. Expectancy of present good so happily takes over. This is the way appointed for you now. You walk this path as others walk, nor do you seem to be distinct from them although you are indeed. Although it seems to be right there, the road You walk is different. They expect their path will lead to dying, while You expect to ultimate in Life! Thus can you serve them while you serve yourself and set their footsteps on the way which God has opened up to you, and them through you. For They’ll notice that Your attitude is somehow different. Next They will be curious, and then They’ll be interested.
6 Illusion still appears to cling to you that you may reach them. In other words, You look just as They do, and, yet, something different speaks to them from Your demeanor. Yet it has stepped back, and it is not illusion that they hear you speak of nor illusion which you bring their eyes to look on and their minds to grasp. They know that You know something good, and They want to know this good too, along with You. Now can the truth, which walks ahead of you, – as well as behind and beside You too, for It’s everywhere – speak to them through illusion, for the road leads past illusion now, while on the way you call to them that they may follow you. Although the road does seem the same to them, it leads somewhere that is quite different.
Most roads in the dream lead to more dreaming! Broad and wide are those ways which can lead You to destruction. Strait and narrow is the path to Life; few there be that find it.1
7All roads will lead to this one in the end. Eventually You will come gladly Home to God, and surely not by ‘dying’. For sacrifice and deprivation are paths which lead nowhere, choices for defeat, and aims which will remain impossible. This is most assuredly not the way that We are teaching. All this steps back as truth comes forth in you – Your living Presence – to lead your brothers from the ways of death and set them on the way to happiness. Their suffering is but illusion, although it seems real. Yet they need a guide to lead them out of it, for they mistake illusion for the truth. Which keeps the Son of God in endless dreams.
8 Such is salvation’s call, and nothing more. It asks that you accept the truth, – God is Love, and God is Your Life as well – and let it go before you, lighting up the path of ransom from illusion. It is not a ransom with a price. Truth can only give! There is no cost, but only gain. Illusion can but seem to hold in chains the holy Son of God. It is but from illusions he is saved. As they step back, he finds himself again. For the Son of God could never be lost, but only hidden.
9Walk safely now, yet carefully, because this path is new to you. The ego wants You to stumble, then fall. You need not heed it. It cares not for You, but for temptation. And you may find that you are tempted still to walk ahead of truth and let illusions be your guide. But please don’t do it! Your holy brothers have been given you to follow in your footsteps as you walk with certainty of purpose to the truth. It goes before you now, that they may see something with which they can identify, something they understand to lead the way. Truth must be Your Guide.
10 Yet at the journey’s ending there will be no gap, no distance between truth and you. And all illusions walking in the way you travelled will be gone from you as well, with nothing left to keep the truth apart from God’s completion, holy as Himself. You trust My words, for I would never think of lying to You. The means do not justify the ends, for the means are but the way unto the ends. Step back in faith, and let truth lead the way. You know not where you go, but One Who knows goes with you. Let Him lead you with the rest.
Therefore, learn to be content to follow. The destination surely is worthwhile.
11 When dreams are over, time has closed the door on all the things that pass, and miracles are purposeless, – for all things simply are miraculous – the holy Son of God will make no journeys. Heaven is right here! No need to travel. There will be no wish to be illusion rather than the truth. And we step forth toward this as we progress along the way that truth points out to us. Ever-obedient to Our Maker. This is our final journey, which we make for everyone. We must not lose our way. For as truth goes before us, so it goes before our brothers who will follow us. Truth is Our ever Guide, Our ever-present God Companion.
12 We walk to God. Pause and reflect on this. Could any way be holier or more deserving of your effort, of your love, and of your full intent? Could there be a better destination?You know there isn’t! What way could give you more than everything – God is never partial in any way, whether with His Gifts or preferences; can You go beyond “more than everything”? Obviously not! – or offer less and still content the holy Son of God? We walk to God. The truth that walks before us now is one with Him and leads us to where He has always been. Heaven’s Harmony, right here and right now, quite available! What way but this could be a path that you would choose instead? This is Sanity.
13 Your feet are safely set upon the road which leads the world to God. You will not wander. Look not to ways that seem to lead you elsewhere. They are serpent lies, leading not to Life. Dreams are not a worthy guide for you who are God’s Son. The Son of God must now be Awakened! Forget not He has placed His hand in yours and given you your brothers in His trust that you are worthy of His trust in you. Feel Love surrounding and embracing You. In Love You live and move and breathe God’s Life. The ego is always trying to deceive the Son of God. He cannot be deceived. His trust has made your pathway certain and your goal secure. You will not fail your brothers nor your Self. Your Elder Brother has supreme confidence in All of You.
14 And now He asks but that you think of Him a while – or even longer – each day that He may speak to you and tell you of His Love, – which will melt Your heart – reminding you how great His trust, how limitless His Love: It is Eternal. In your name and His own, which are the same, we practice gladly with this thought today:
15 I will step back and let Him lead the way, – I so respect Him – For I would walk along the road to Him. For He knows exactly where We’re going and how to get there! He goes straight to God, also known as forever Life and Love.
1 Matthew 7:14
7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and s/he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
12 Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.
