What could harm the power and glory of God’s Divine Love? A Love that knows no opposite does not have any opponent or ‘enemy.’ This is actually the meaning of True Strength. Having no enemy, the idea of ‘overpowering’is meaningless to Love. For Love can just only look on Love and see Its Perfection radiating Eternally.
The ego is the belief in vulnerability. It is the belief that something (anything) could be attacked or weakened or destroyed svava grace of god. This type of belief is but a vain attempt to deny the Eternal Union of Spirit, Which will be far beyond the imagined world of the temporary. In fantasy, attack seems possible and defenses justified, but what exactly is fantasy but an imaginary game a sleepy child plays for a minute of amusement.
There is an occasion when disillusionment comes to the mind which deals in fantasies. And beyond this point an entire new world of glimmering light emerges within. The Vision of the Holy One is revealed as the veil of duality is parted, and beaming Rays of Light replace the world of perception. In the Great Rays of Understanding is God and Self remembered, whole, unified, perfect and complete.
Such is the worth of forgiveness. Forgiveness parts the veil made to cover the Face of Love. Forgiveness brings healing to a head fatigued with fantasies. Forgiveness brings gentleness to some sort of made harsh by lies. And forgiveness brings the glad tidings of Awakening, heralding the dawn of Wisdom Eternal. “Whenever you meet anyone, remember it is a holy encounter. As you see him you will see yourself. As you treat him you’ll treat yourself. As you think of him you’ll think of yourself. Remember this, for in him you will discover yourself or lose yourself. Whenever two Sons of God meet, they’re given another chance at salvation. Don’t leave anyone without giving salvation to him and receiving it yourself. For I am always there with you, in remembrance of you.
Thank You God for opening the way in which and leading a missing flock back again to the Awareness of Eternal Oneness. Glory to God in the Highest, and Good Will to all or any!
