Embrace the Love

Holy Spirit to Robert: Embrace the Love in all things. This is how you learn to embrace the Love you are. This is your only function in truth. Love’s one purpose is to extend Itself. Because you are Love, your only purpose is to extend Love. Any other function you think you may have is based upon the false idea of what you are.

That is why it is essential that you practice and practice and practice bringing all unloving thoughts, thoughts of fear, of guilt, of sadness, of anger, of lack and loss, to Me. I will help you see that these thoughts have no real foundation and together we will look past the images, the misperceptions, and see the Love That is always there.

You cannot embrace the Love on your own, because thinking you are on your own denies the Love. But together with Me, we embrace the Love of the Universe and experience It as the one Self that is the Son of God. Let’s walk together. Let Me share My vision with you. Together we will walk in joy.

Holy Spirit to Dorie:
If you will do nothing more than extend and embrace the Love in all, your fear will fall away. It will be no more. Just these two things — extend… embrace…—  will show you the Love That Is. Your confidence will soar and you will see there is no hatred. There is nothing but Love. There is no danger. There is nothing but peace. All fear hides the abundance I provide for you.

Holy Spirit to Annie:
  Love the Love that You are. Love the peace that You are. Love the joyful heart that You are. Love the innocence that You are. Love the Light that You are. Love the Christ that You are. You are all this and perfectly so.

Holy Spirit to Mary:
Focus on your willingness to allow in the awareness of the Love You are today. The time is now. You are Love now. You can be aware of the Love you are now with just a little willingness. Let the Light of Truth in and it will light up every dark corner, every fear. You cannot do this alone. Be willing to let your mind still and let the Light in. Love will do the rest.

Start a New Habit

Holy Spirit to Robert:  Let yourself see as I see. I see you and everyone as pure Love. Nothing else. You were created by Love as Love. That can never change. I am always with you, ready, willing and able to help you see as I see.

All that stands between seeing as I see and the way you now see is judgment. Judgment divides you off from what you judge. You must perceive yourself as different from in order to judge another. The truth about you is not separate. It is a false image of yourself that you reinforce when you judge. I will help you see as I see. All you need to do is to be willing to give all your judgments to Me and to open your heart and mind to My gentle, loving, compassionate correction.

I will gently help you see the valuelessness of each judgment. I will help you recognize it as meaningless. With this recognition, you will freely let it go with no sense of sacrifice. It is not difficult to disregard what you recognize as meaningless.

You cannot sort the meaningful from the meaningless on your own, because on your own you don’t know the difference. But I am always with you to do the sorting for you and to help you see the meaningless for what it is. The practice of turning over all your judgments to Me is the way you will walk to the truly meaningful and experience your Self as you have always been. Join with Me and let us walk together to peace.

Holy Spirit through Annie:
  I am the ANSWER to your dreams. I call you NOW to awaken. Open the eyes of your mind and your heart and SEE what I am showing you. I am always showing you the TRUTH. Put all your TRUST in this. I will heal your blindness by shining the Light of the truth upon you. My Light will heal you deeply and you will see again. There will be a celebration in Heaven when you open your eyes and see All That You are — the One beloved Child of God.

Holy Spirit through Sharyn:
Start today by starting a new habit. Let your new habit be coming to Me for everything. Start out your morning, for instance, by keeping track of how many times you come to Me. Then this afternoon, make sure you come to Me more often than you did in the morning. Then in the evening, make sure you come to Me more often than you did in the afternoon.

Remember to be patient with yourself as a new habit takes time to establish. But since we know there is no time, it need not be. You can automatically start today and it will become a new habit for you. I will help you with this. This is a journey that will bring joy, happiness, Love and freedom to you. We’ll talk soon My Love.

Forgiveness: Let Go and Let God

Robert:  Yesterday I was reminded how important it is for me to be vigilant to recognize when my thoughts are tied in to the ego thought system. I became aware of impatience, uncertainty and feelings of frustration. I realized that I was making up stories about what I perceived to be the cause of the circumstances that were bothering me. And those stories were stories of being at the mercy of other people’s thoughts and actions. In other words, I was playing the victim.

I was surprised at how easily and unconsciously I had slipped into that mode. I wasn’t trusting in God. I was believing in separation and making separation real in my mind. Belief in separation and trust are antithetical. If I’m trusting I have let go of belief in separation. If I’m believing in separation, trust is impossible. Because separation is illusion and all illusions are really nothing, there is no basis for trust when I am believing in separation. It was a great relief to recognize that I had slipped over to the dark side of separation and bought into the fear that comes with it.

The simple recognition of my mistaken thoughts gave me the crack in the door to be able to offer these thoughts to the Holy Spirit for His gentle correction. As soon as I did this, I felt relief. I felt assurance that all I need to do is to follow Holy Spirit in every moment. It is not my job to make the plan and orchestrate it. It is my job to receive Holy Spirit’s plan and execute His plan. That job is easy because the strength and means to fulfill His plan are provided. I’m not on my own. Never have been. Never will be. Today I walk hand in hand with Holy Spirit, assured of His strength and guidance. I walk in peace.

  Forgiveness is my only function here. Letting go of the belief that I could separate from God and the rest of the Sonship is my one function. Letting go of thinking that separation is real, which is forgiveness, is my one function. Today my job is to practice handing over every thought that comes from belief in separation to the Holy Spirit to be undone. The Holy Spirit removes the belief for me, but I must be willing to let it go. Today my practice is to remember that I rest in Oneness and that all my needs are met. I still am as God created me. I cannot change God’s Creation and separate it off into little tiny parts. I cannot make separation real. Today I am willing to practice once again to let go of my belief in separation and let God, which brings me the awareness of oneness. Solo la Luz (only the Light).

Today I want to thank Spirit for His Holy Presence. It is constantly blessing everyone and everything. I thank Spirit for guiding us in these morning meetings. He graces us with His Light, thoughts and words. I thank Spirit for His healing touch. Much doubt and pain are undone and dissolved as He gently sends His Light to every open space in our minds and hearts. I thank Spirit for everyone, for everything, and for all time.

Holy Spirit to Dorie:
  Be in the light for you are Light. Soar like a flag unfurled.

Holy Spirit to Sharyn:
  I see a flag with a star. You are not a lone star, for we are all one Star, part of the One Light. Thank you for trusting in that Light. The more we realize our oneness with Light and trust that all is well, the more we will move through life with ease. It will be smooth sailing.

Notice when you sail a boat, there is no motor running, meaning no ego running wild and noisy. There is only peace and serenity. Allow yourself to sail through the seas of life. I, Holy Spirit, am the Captain of your ship. I would never lead you to rocky waters or stormy weather. When you put your trust in Me, it will all be just smooth sailing.

Get on board, everyone, and enjoy the sail. Enjoy going with the flow. Enjoy feeling the peace and calmness of just letting the wind take you wherever it is you are supposed to be. Remember, only goodness will follow you all the days. Enjoy the smooth sailing everyone. Enjoy.

Willingness to Accept Holy Spirit’s Help

Mary: Yesterday we had a wonderful Sunday teleconference service. Rev. CiCi Caravello, a Pathways of Light minister, drove from Royal Palm Beach to be with us for the Sunday service. It was wonderful to meet her in person for the first time. She was ordained four years ago and we have talked many times on the phone.

The Sunday Service teleconference is a wonderful blessing to us as we join people all over the world for the one purpose of joining with Holy Spirt. Many Pathways of Light ministers and students are participating in this beautiful sharing, following Holy Spirit’s lead. If you are guided to join us for the Sunday Service, please email us and we will send you the teleconference access information. It is wonderful to connect with people in this shared purpose.

Dorie Bryan is living with us here in Florida and we are having wonderful time. She is helpful in many ways and fun to be with. We are grateful for her presence and her helpfulness.

Holy Sprit to Mary:
I am receiving an image of a waterfall. And the water then flows through a gorge. I hear the words: Go with the flow. Relax and let yourself be carried in the moment. Remember that the Holy Spirit is in charge of your awakening. You are not. The Holy Spirit only requires your willingness. The rest is done by the Holy Spirit. Keep your mind open to Holy Spirit’s lead and you will be led with simplicity and ease. Let joy fill your heart. Let peace lead the way.

Holy Spirit to Robert:
  Love is continually extending Itself. Love knows no limits. Love knows only Love, for only Love is real. Love is What you are. Perception of anything but Love is simply a mistaken thought. Your belief in the mistaken thought makes the presence of Love obscure to you. Yet the Love is still there.

The moment by moment practice of bringing all thoughts that do not carry the experience of Love in them to the Holy Spirit in your mind is the way to lift the veil of obscurity. Giving those thoughts to the Holy Spirit and opening to His reinterpretation is the way back to the full recognition of your Self as What you are.

Practice. It matters not if you forget. When you remember, practice again. Each time you remember, you let Holy Spirit loosen a thread in the veil that obscures Love to you. It is not your job to forgive. It is your job to bring each unforgiving thought, each thought invested in separation, to the Holy Spirit for His gentle correction. He forgives on your behalf, for He knows what is real and disregards the unreal, knowing the unreal has never really happened. Give yourself the gift of practice today.

Opening to Love

Holy Spirit to Dorie:
Feel the essence of your Spirit. You are Love. You can be only Love. Extend that Love to all around you, to everything around you. You are the Light of My Love. Feel the peace, the joy in extending My Spirit throughout the world.

Holy Spirit to Mary:
  Let today be God’s day. Put God first today. Let God be in charge of your day. Let yourself become aware of Love’s Presence. Let yourself be healed by Love’s Presence. Let yourself receive the gifts of peace and happiness which being aware of Love’s Presence brings. Let Love lead you through the day.

We are one Self, united in our Creator. Today I will practice seeing everywhere the one Self united with me in Love. With this practice, I will learn and reinforce the awareness of Love’s Presence as what I am and what everyone is. It is not the images that the bodies eyes show me that are untied. It is the Self beyond the images, the presence of Love that is one. Today I dedicate to seeing that oneness.

Holy Spirit to Dorie:
You need not need to fight or struggle to break down the barriers to Love’s Presence. You need merely focus on the Love within, the Love that is the true You, your true Self, for the barriers to Love’s Presence to dissolve completely and instantly before you.

Step Back and Let Love Show You the Truth

Holy Spirit to Mary:  The Christ in you is all that is real. The Christ in everyone is all that is real. All else is illusion. Let yourself remember this today. Watch your thoughts and if they are not coming from your real mind, hand them over to the Christ Mind to be purified.

Little child, you are still learning to distinguish the difference between the real and the unreal. You cannot do this on your own. Let today be a day of stepping back and listening for the truth.

Holy Spirit to Robert:
  Rest in God… Rest in God… Rest in God… Walk with God. Be with God. Open your heart to experience Love’s kind and gentle strength. Love’s strength is the foundation for your certainty of your safety. In Love’s strength, there is no need to defend. In Love’s strength, you are just, for Love shows you only innocence, being capable of only seeing Its own reflection everywhere.

As you live and walk in Love, you extend Love’s blessing and experience Love’s blessing. As you live and walk in Love, you see no adversaries, no danger. The images of the world become gossamer shadows which have no effect on the changeless Love that is everywhere. Let yourself see with Love today and you will know that you are Love.

Join in the Heart of Love

Holy Spirit to Mary:  No matter what appears to be occurring within the dream of separation, it is always helpful to remember that only Love is real. God’s one Son is changeless, perfect and whole right now.

It is helpful to remember that the error of separation is not real. It is helpful to let the veil be lifted. This is how peace returns. This is how the Holy Spirit removes all fear from our troubled minds. This is how peace is restored. Simple, uncomplicated Love heals all things in the dream of separation. Be still and let your mind be healed today.

Holy Spirit to Robert:
  See every moment as an opportunity to extend Love. Do not decide for yourself how this is to be accomplished or the form it is to take. Simply hold the openness to Love in your heart. In accepting Love, Love will extend of Itself. Let your heart feel the Love in the heart of what appears to be another.

That Love is there, no matter what behavior appears to be presented. That Love joins you because Love is one. A pouting child, an angry adult, a loving grandmother, a smiling baby, a homeless person living in a cardboard shelter, all share the one Love that joins all hearts. There is no difference in truth. Open your heart to joining in that Love and you will experience blessing beyond description.

Set aside your past judgments, your opinions, your likes and dislikes. Give them to the Holy Spirit, Who welcomes them. He knows what to do with them. He is grateful each time you are willing to turn them over, for it opens the door for you to receive the gift He holds out to you eternally. Receive the gift and give it by joining with all in the heart of Love.
