      Many of you will encounter a period, in your lifetime upon the Earth, when each new day feels more like training camp than a walk in the park, or a day at the beach.  It seems as if those around you are enjoying life, while you are rising-up each day to see how far you must run, how far you must walk, how far you must go to master the obstacles and challenges that are in front of you, waiting to be tackled, to be overcome.  And, as you rise each morning, and put your feet on the floor, you feel exhausted before you begin, because you know, once more, there are miles to walk, and miles to run, and obstacles to endure.  But somewhere, between the enduring and the event, for which you are being prepared, endure results in endurance, exercise results in strength, all, the obstacles you encountered, turns into confidence.  And come the event, for which you are being prepared, you are ready.  You are ready because: after jumping the rope one hundred times, you knew you could jump the rope one hundred and one times; after mastering one hundred obstacles in the course, you knew that you could tackle just one more.  And, so it goes, one step leading to another.  But, the first step always begins at the door, the door that is in front of you.  Will you open it and walk through?  Are you willing to meet the obstacles in front of you?  It might make it easier for you to do, if you know that the obstacle in front of you is something you can do, for the one who is training you does not give you something impossible to do.  The strategy of the training is to give you something that you must reach to do.  It is in the reaching, the going one more step, the jumping one more time, to making another climb, where you are truly prepared.  If your life feels more like a training camp than a park bench, it is for a reason.  You are being trained for a great event.  Therefore, look at each day as your opportunity to grow, to move from that which you endure to endurance, to strength, to confidence.

And The Holy Spirit says:

       If you are being led to climb to the top of a mountain, it is for a reason.  If you are being led to walk through the desert, it is for a reason.  If you are being led to ford a river, or cross an ocean, it is for a reason.  These things, to which you are led, are a piece of your journey upon the Earth, are part of your mission upon the Earth, and all that you encounter, is for a reason.

 

 

 

      I AM love.  I love you.  Nothing can change that which I AM.  Nothing can change My love for you because I AM love.  And since you come from Me, and since you are My creation, you are of My love, you too are love.  As I open My arms and wait, love is pouring from Me, with no measure, and it fills the cups, and they overflow.  And this love, and these overflowing cups of love, are your treasure, an endless stream of love, flowing from Me to you.  And, since you are held within this embrace of eternal love, it is possible for you to love too.

And The Holy Spirit says:

       While you are upon the Earth, it can be difficult to comprehend unchanging, unaltered, unending, love.  But God is love.  Therefore, nothing comes from God but love.  When you permit the love of God to embrace you, and hold you, you find comfort and peace, a sanctuary in which to dwell, during your time upon Earth, as you complete your mission.  Nothing can alter this love, no matter what you do.  Nothing you do can change that which is.  You see a tree, and you know it is a tree, because it is a tree.  You see a flower, and you know it is a flower, because it is a flower.  As you come from God, as you come from love, you can carry this love of God, this unending, unchanging love of God, into the world created by man, and you can let it flow through you, extend your hand, and let those around you see God: because of the loving things you do; because you permit the love of God to flow through you.  And, because you are held in the love of God, and the love of God flows through you, those around you know God too, through what you say, and what you do.  You see, God’s love continues through you, if you will allow it.

 

 

 

      You hold the key.  Every answer to any situation, issue, or matter, is within you.  For, I was asked, and then did send, My Holy Spirit to descend upon you, to move into you, to live through you, so that you might turn your back on the answers of the world, and choose, of your own free will, to meet every situation using The Gifts, or one of the many Fruits of The Gifts, of The Holy Spirit, because there is a heavenly answer to every situation in the world today.  When you look at The Gifts, and The Fruits of The Gifts, they are many.  But you will not find The Fruits, or The Gifts, with the names such as: hatred, anger, retaliation, blame, or greed.  These are not The Gifts that I sent unto you.  Therefore, turn away from darkness and shadow, and choose The Gifts within you.  Use them well and use them long.  They will serve you well and they will serve you long.  You have the answers.  Now use The Gifts you have been given, so that you might know peace.

And The Holy Spirit says:

       The reason that there is war upon the Earth, and it does not end, it continues to come, in a circle, repeating, over and over: hatred, retaliation, anger, blame.  It is repeated: hatred, retaliation, anger, blame.  And then, these explode into war.  And this explosion, and this war, might be limited to two people, or three people, or states, or countries, or it might impact the entire world.  But it never matters who wins the war of hatred, retaliation, anger, and blame.  These things do not disappear unless they are met with love, peace, compassion, and understanding.  You cannot dictate peace.  You cannot command kindness.  You cannot demand love.  These things come from the heart and are gifts of the heart.  Using The Gifts of The Holy Spirit, using The Gifts that I carry within you, you will find peace in the midst of chaos and confusion, because that is where I will guide you.

 

 

 

      Complete freedom is not held in the apology.  Complete freedom is held in the act of forgiveness.  For when it is your intention to hold this forgiveness sacred in your heart, and soul, and spirit, it is as a key, unlocking the prison door, and you fly, you soar, free, free to be all that you are meant to be, no longer held in place behind the prison door.

And The Holy Spirit says:

       Sometimes it falls to you to offer an apology, and each time you have done so, it seems there is something missing from the circle of apology and forgiveness.  Sometimes it falls to you to receive an apology, and here too, you will find, many times, it does not seem complete.  What is missing?  The apology has been offered.  It is complete forgiveness that is missing.  Freedom is not held in the apology.  Freedom, complete freedom, is held in forgiveness.  You hold the key to freedom within the act of forgiveness.  If you cannot forgive completely, you are still in the prison, the door is still locked.  But the very moment you forgive completely, from your heart, this key of forgiveness opens the door, and you are free, once more.

 

 

 

      Know the value, and the worth, of that which has been given unto you.  Know the value, and the worth, of that which you can create from within you.  Know your value, know your worth, as I have created you, so that you might love, and be loved, by Me.

And The Holy Spirit says:

       It is easy to see the things, the objects, that the world created by man values, thinks has worth.  But it is also possible to see the things God values, to see the things God believes has worth.  It is possible to see the seen and the unseen.

 

 

 

      “I AM with you.  And, when you close your eyes, it is easier to feel My presence with you, because with the act of closing your eyes, you close the door to the material world, and there we are, together as one.  Close your eyes, and you will feel Me.  Close your eyes, and you will know Me better.  Close your eyes, and you will see Me, as I AM with you.

                               

      “Today, let us think about the gifts.  And today, I AM not going to focus on just the gifts of Heaven, The Gifts of The Holy Spirit of God.  Let us address the gifts of Earth, as well.  And let us address the gifts of the material world, also. 

      “If it is possible for you to do, within your mind, create three quadrants, like three people, standing shoulder to shoulder.  Separate them a bit, and now you have three areas, three distinct areas.  Now, take the people out of the picture, totally, and hold your vision on those three empty quadrants.  Now, in the first quadrant, yes, way over there to the left, fill it with all the material things you can imagine, at this time: cars, boats, coats, clothes, trinkets, gadgets, houses.  Fill it up.  Now, in the middle quadrant, envision whatever pieces and parts of nature you prefer.  Let them come to life in that middle quadrant: trees, and rivers, and meadows, or hills, or deserts, and seas, and oceans, whatever you will.  Fill that middle quadrant with nature, the gifts of Earth.  Now, that leaves the third quadrant for the gifts of Heaven.  You can see the cars.  You can see the trees.  But can you see the energy of love?  Right now, at this moment, I would like for you to fill that third quadrant with love, flood it with light, pack it with compassion, and understanding, forgiveness.  Fill it with all The Gifts of The Holy Spirit that come into your head; but, put those gifts to action.  If you are thinking of love, see acts of love.  If you are thinking of peace, see peace created between two or more people.  If you are thinking forgiveness, let the act be simple, outstretched hands.  So, you have three quadrants of value, three quadrants that you believe are worth something.

       “The only things, in each of these quadrants, all of these quadrants, that can be equally experienced, by every human being upon Earth, come from the middle quadrant, and the heavenly quadrant, let us call it, The Gifts of Heaven, the unseen.  Every person, upon the Earth, cannot equally have the same car.  Every person, upon Earth, cannot share in what is created in the material world.  Isn’t that interesting (that) it is designed that way?  I believe, on Earth, it might be referred to as ‘those who have, and those who have not.’  And, your status, in the world created by man, in the material world, comes from how much you have, how much you have cost you to purchase, how shiny the baubles.  But this is not equal in any way, because it was never designed to be so. 

      “God created the Earth, and Mother Earth gives forth trees, and grasses, and flowers, and seeds which can be replanted, and replanted to sustain those of Earth.  These gifts, these natural gifts upon Earth are equal to everyone.  The rich and the poor can stand under the tree.  The rich and the poor can wade into the sea.  The rich and the poor can breathe-in the aroma of a flower.  It is for all because it comes from God, who loves all, in equal measure. 

      “And the heavenly quadrant, look at it and see.  Everyone of these gifts, love, compassion, understanding, all of these gifts that create peace, and kindness (they) are not determined by how much money you have.  The rich and the poor can know love equally, forgiveness equally, kindness equally.  These are the things of true value, these are the things of eternal value, because your first quadrant is going to crumble.  It does not take imagination, or much of it, to: envision the clothing, you stacked in the first quadrant, see it falling apart, moth-ridden; see the cars rusting; the houses falling into disrepair; see those who have not take the shiny baubles from those who have; see the frustration, and chaos, and confusion, created in the world, where it is not possible for everyone to experience the car, the house, the dress, the toys. 

      “So, I ask you, why do you struggle so to store-up these things, which have no eternal value, and seem to divide rather than unify?  Look at your quadrants during this day, because those things of value, those places where all can live in the love, and light, of God, in equal measure, in those places, you find peace, and happiness, and joy.  There is nothing wrong with the car.  But if you are filled with love, and peace, and joy, generosity, and kindness, then these things that you are creating within, these things of eternal value, will somehow enhance the car.  But the car will never enhance forgiveness, or compassion, or understanding.  Make straight your perspective on that which is of value.”

 

 

      When you long to know Me better, leave your houses, and buildings, and tents, and awnings, and go out to walk amongst the trees, through the grasses, next to the rivers and streams, because it is in these places that you will know Me.  Look up into the sky, see the blue.  Feel the sun, shining down on you, warming you.  Look up into the sky, even when the clouds promise the gift of rain.  And as it falls, I wash your face, and tears are gone, no longer remain.  Turn in a circle, and feel the breeze: wrapping you, moving you, touching you.  It fills you with life, the breath of life.  And as the breeze caresses you, it is easy to fall to your knees, and feel the Earth below you, as you lower your head, and I whisper, within you, “Child, I love you.”

And The Holy Spirit says:

       It is easier to know God in nature.  You can know God in a city, or a building of bricks, but it is easier to feel God, and know God better, when you are walking in God’s creation, when you look at wonder, when you look at majesty, when you see the waves of the ocean as they rise and fall, when you see the tops of the mountains touching the sky, and realize, wrapped in the love of God, that you are a piece of it all, God’s sacred creation.
