My dear friends,
I am Jeshua. I greet you all. You are all beings of light. You have come to earth to spread your light. In doing so, you meet with resistance. You are confronted with darkness. What is this game between light and darkness really about? What is the purpose of the resistance and darkness you have been experiencing?
Being in the Light means being in a state of consciousness in which you realize your oneness with all that is. If you are in the Light, if you are the Light, you feel completely boundless and free. You know you are part of a greater whole and you feel you are deeply cherished within this infinite web of living consciousness. Light is your connection to the One.
Light is by nature formless. It is not dependent on any material form. It is free from the constraints of time and space. You are not the material form in which your consciousness dwells at this moment. You are not your body, you are not the flesh and blood of which your body is made, nor the gender, nor the characteristics that belong to your present personality. They are part of you, but you are so much more. You are their origin, their divine creator.
Your infinite soul has dwelled in many different life forms and has experienced a great number of lifetimes throughout the universe. These experiences have enriched you in ways you do not yet recognize. Your sometimes arduous journey through incarnation is nothing short of God’s way of expanding him/herself. Your journey through form is meaningful, for it allows all of creation to expand and proliferate in new and enriching ways.
I know it often does not feel to you this way. You can become overwhelmed by the lack of light and connectedness on earth. I know. I am here to ignite a spark of remembrance in your soul. If you remember who you truly are, you realize that your divine core is still whole and unscathed, in spite of all that you have been through. Feeling your wholeness may give you a sense of relief or even a feeling of ecstasy. This is when you know you are hitting upon the truth. You remember the truth of who you are: a divine soul with infinite possibilities. I am here to remind you of who you are, and to inspire you to bring that awareness to your everyday life.
There is no real gap between the human you and the divine you. Your divine self is not somewhere else. It is not located in time and space to begin with. If you want to connect to it right now, you can do so by stepping back for a moment from issues that press on your mind and emotions. Imagine your consciousness to become larger, withdrawing from these issues, and entering a space of open awareness. Within that space, there is no needing or wanting, there is just being. It may seem as if this is not going to help you solve any problems in your life, but I am inviting you to simply try. Can you shift your awareness and just observe yourself in a quiet and detached way? Can you be with yourself without judging or interfering? You will find that doing so makes you calm and more relaxed. If your emotions, thoughts or physical sensations draw you out of this calm space, don’t worry. Let it be. Observe what happens. In time you will discover that entering this space of silent awareness is a powerful tool to remember who you are.
This tool is always available to you. You can stay in touch with your wholeness, with the space of freedom within, by always keeping some distance from the things that trouble you, or even excite you in a positive way. By maintaining some distance you keep the awareness alive that these things never define you completely, although they are indeed important in your life. You are more than the emotions and events that transpire in your life. Inside you there is a presence who silently yet intensely observes all of these events and experiences come and go. This presence is indestructible. It is the fountain of life itself.
你是經驗這一切的意識 (譯: 而非這一切---身體、天賦、特質…)
You chose to temporarily connect your consciousness with a body, a form, in your life on earth. There is a reason for this choice. The body is very precious. It is a wondrous feat that you can focus your consciousness in such a way that it identifies partially with a body, with the person that you are now, man or woman, with all the talents and characteristics that belong to you. However, please do not make the mistake that you are this package of characteristics. You are the consciousness that experiences them. This awareness can set you free.
The divine you, your beingness stripped to the core, is like a wide, open space, empty and yet full of vitality and potential. This is the part of you that is God. This is Home. If you connect to this part of you, you sense relief, joy and freedom. You feel safe. Being in the darkness means that you feel separated from your core, from your connection to the whole. You feel dispelled from the wide inner space which alone can bring you the peace and joy you are searching for. All suffering originates from this sense of disconnection. It is the severest pain your soul can experience.
Why do souls ever choose to experience separation? The moment you choose to incarnate and live inside a material form, your light gets limited and constrained. Your consciousness gets narrowed down and you lose your sense of infinity. You tend to lose connection with the real you, who is formless, free and unlimited. Especially for young souls, who are in the beginning stage of their incarnation journey, it is easy to forget and to identify themselves with the form they inhabit. It is a sign of maturity when a soul is able to fully inhabit a human body and at the same time realize that that it is not the body but the one who experiences it and gives life to it. As the soul evolves, the awareness is born that there’s something transcending the body, the material form focused in time and space. The mature soul opens up to the dimension of formlessness and starts to recognize that its true essence resides there. In doing so, the evolved soul will be able to bring down the awareness of oneness into the realm of material form.
Why would a soul choose to embark on the journey of incarnation? Why did you choose to be confined by material form, by the cycle of birth and death, and all that goes with it? Wouldn’t it be much more blissful to stay in a state of unbounded oneness all the time? Ask yourself this question. Some of you would say right away that if possible, you would never incarnate again. You would tell me life on earth is too harsh, too dark and that you direly long to go Home and stay there forever. Nonetheless, I am telling you that your soul chose to experience this lifetime you are living on earth, like it chose to experience all of the lifetimes it lived on earth. There is a part to your soul who loves to dance with matter, and I am telling you this is the most divine, sacred and creative part of you.
God desires to bring light into material form. Spirit (which I use as a synonym for God) created matter for Light to take shape and be experienced by itself. The creation of matter brought into being the dance of consciousness and matter: the dance of spirit and body. The interplay between spirit and body is God’s way of creating. You – as a spirit inhabiting a body - are God’s creation unfolding. As your soul is evolving and maturing, it is becoming more able to hold the light of Spirit and express it through a body. The art of living in a body is to manifest the freedom of Spirit within the material dimension. Anything in the material dimension that is lighted from within by the awareness of Spirit radiates beauty and vitality and adds something important to life. Embodied light is the most precious light there is. By embodying your soul’s light on earth, in a material form, you are expanding God’s creation. You are creating something new, and contributing something to the whole which would not have existed without your unique presence.
