Enthusiasm and excitement are powerful motivators, so as you look forward to awakening, elicit those feelings to strengthen and empower your intent to do so. You are powerful beings, and you are on Earth to engage with your power and use it to bring in a completely new manner of communicating, a new way of relating to one another, a new mode of living that is always accepting and honoring of others, and respectful of the differing ideas that you present to one another for discussion.
It is through ideas that new creative ventures can be envisioned and embarked upon. When you awaken, the prospects available, the directions in which you can move, the activities in which you can take part will be limitless. Anything you can think of you will be able to bring forth and develop – a poem, a symphony, a universe – and the joy of doing so will cause you unalloyed satisfaction. Your Father’s Will for you is eternal joy, satisfaction, and happiness, and His Will is always accomplished, so your future, at one with Him, will be glorious, brilliant, and utterly fulfilling.
For eons, deep within yourselves, beneath the level of consciousness on which you normally operate as humans, you have been longing to return to your divine state. Every thought, every word, every activity that has engaged your attention has been directed towards accomplishing that, even though you were mostly unaware of this hidden internal drive whose only purpose was to restore you to the pristine state in which you were created. A state which in truth you have never left.
That purpose, the true purpose of human existence, has had you striving long and hard, seeking for something far, far better to live for, something that made sense in a world where very little seemed truly deserving of your undivided attention. And so you have judged, condemned, deceived, and competed for the esteem and recognition of your fellowman that you felt should be your due, and by doing so you have diluted and impoverished those benign and unimpeachable aspects of yourselves. You are perfect beings created by God, who recognizes you as His beloved children and holds you in the highest esteem.
However, when you built a separate illusory environment and moved into it you lost sight of God and temporarily lost the knowledge of your divine perfection. Without it you felt alone, abandoned, threatened, inadequate, and so you attempted to replace your lost sense of identity – your true oneness with your Father – with a fictitious, insubstantial, and fanciful one that constantly demanded upgrading and improvement each time its inadequacies jeopardized the image that you used to present yourselves to the world as persons of value and importance.
But these deceits, these false selves that you have been endeavoring to maintain and display have created a maelstrom, an enormous energy drain which costs you very dearly, and they provide neither the stability nor the security that you hoped they would. You thus have to spend inordinate amounts of time engaged in diversionary tactics so that no one will have the opportunity to see through your mask to the worthless and frightened individual that each of you fear is hiding behind it. But as you frequently see through the masks of others, you know in your hearts that these disguises are unequal to the tasks for which they are intended, and so you live in a constant state of anxiety.
This need not be. Release the masks that you have made for yourselves; dispose of them permanently. Be yourselves – unsure, uncertain, and unsettled as you are — and share those feelings openly. Some may judge you foolish, and that is of no consequence; others will praise your courage, but the end result will be that your fears will dissolve as you come to realize that being yourselves is comfortable and undemanding, and you will rediscover the knowledge that you are beings of profound and imperishable value.
This honesty and integrity of spirit will provide you with renewed energy and enable you to be far more aware of others, feel compassion for them, and assist them when they seek your help. You will then find that you are no longer plagued by worries about what others may think of you because you are now at peace with yourselves as you live lovingly and generously, sharing yourselves and the love with which you are most abundantly suffused, freely and indiscriminately for the upliftment and inspiration of all with whom you interact.
Your loving brother, Jesus.
