God does not call people to account
07/04/2012 by John Smallman
The moment for humanity’s awakening into its natural fully-conscious state draws ever closer. Your impatience as you wait for this exhilarating event is quite understandable because it seems that you have been waiting in excited expectation for far too long. Your indefatigable patience will soon be rewarded with joy and happiness far beyond your wildest dreams, because a divine promise has been made and it will be honored in full.
Continue to hold the Light and share it lovingly with everyone with whom you interact; that is your task, your purpose, your path, and your reason for being incarnate at this point in your human evolution. You have all the assistance that you need to maintain your faith in God’s promise as the moment for this exciting event approaches — your doubts and anxieties are just the unreal effect that the illusion is having on you.
It was built to enable those within it to hide from God, and one of the methods of doing so was to cause chaos and confusion, while apparently offering a way to find God through the variety of religious beliefs and dogmas that have proliferated over the eons. Many of the religious teachings on offer have within them some very good ideas and concepts, but they have frequently been misinterpreted, and those misinterpretations were then enforced as laws by misguided and dogmatic teachers.
The everlasting message from your divine Father is “Love each other as I love You.” It truly is that simple. His Love for you is infinite, and yet so many of you have incredible difficulty with that divine truth.
So long as you judge and condemn one another you will remain confused and unable to find peace; and if you have religious or spiritual tendencies you will most likely be seeking a god of retribution to support the anger you feel towards those others.
Judgment and condemnation demands victims, guilty ones, and in that harsh game no one is innocent, so peace is unobtainable. While you honor your own need to be right, which demands that you find others wrong, you can have no peace because you are constantly in a state of dissatisfaction as those others continue to live and thrive despite their apparent misdeeds. And that encourages you to take action to bring them to account.
You may have noticed that God does not call people to account. He created you all as perfect divine beings and that is how He always sees you. Judgment is not of God anymore than is the illusion. But over the eons the illusion has become increasingly real for you, and it has brought you ever more suffering. Now is the time for you to finally release your addiction to it and let it go, along with all the pain, confusion, and suffering that it causes. Your history shows you quite clearly that it is a state of confusion in which disagreements and conflicts predominate, and where peace is a long sought but unachievable concept.
When you awaken, as you most surely will, the peace, the satisfaction, the self-acceptance, and the realization of your true nature as divine beings will bring you to a state of joy that is presently completely beyond your ability to conceive of or contemplate. But, being your natural state, you will recognize it instantly as Reality, your true Home, as you experience once more oneness with God and all of His divine creation. The joy that awaits you will dazzle you with the boundlessness of its eternal brilliance.
Your joy is God’s joy and God’s Will, and His Will is constant, eternal, and inevitable. You can delay your entrance into that state by refusing to open yourselves to accept the abundance of His Love, and by holding on to the need to see others who have hurt or offended you brought to account.
What you need to understand is that most of your suffering is caused by your feelings that you have been unfairly treated, and by your imagined need for recompense. All who are human have suffered because it seems that they are alone — insignificant beings, in a vast and inhospitable universe that neither needs them nor values them. The pain of that is too great to bear and thus it is denied and buried deep within the unconscious realms of their minds.
However, its presence remains like a darkness overshadowing their lives, and it often seems that the only way to relieve it is to make others suffer. Everyone who brings or imposes suffering on others is himself suffering, and by the actions he takes he further intensifies his own suffering. It is a catch-22 situation, the more one makes another or others suffer, the greater the suffering he himself experiences.
Forgiveness — true forgiveness — is the only remedy for suffering. By not forgiving one just retains the sense of injustice felt and intensifies it. As many have found when they have sought and received recompense, the sense of injustice does not dissolve; in fact it frequently festers and intensifies, and the recompense received is increasingly seen as inadequate.
Only by forgiving as though no injustice had been dealt to you will you be able to relieve the pain that you feel. Within your illusory environment that seems to make no sense, and yet those who have done it feel mightily relieved, and are able to find peace as the stress of maintaining their grievance dissolves.
So continue your preparations to awaken by forgiving all who have ever hurt or offended you, and by releasing all the unloving attitudes that the illusion has encouraged you to nurture. Doing this will bring you peace and the realization that you are eternally loved by your heavenly Father, whereupon to open your hearts to accept His Love becomes the obvious, inevitable, and only choice that you can possibly make.
With so very much love, Saul.
