“To understand the reality of God and God’s work in the world and in the universe around you, you must understand your own situation clearly, for you are living in a state of separation, in a physical reality, in time and space. Your life here is limited by this time and this space.
You are functioning like a creature on the Earth, but you are greater than this by far. Your deeper nature is connected to where you have come from and to what you will return to beyond this life and world.
You are living in separation from your Source and from Creation itself, which exist beyond the physical reality entirely. You are living in a temporary reality. It is impermanent. It is changing. It is expanding. It is chaotic. It is governed by its own laws and dynamics.
You are a spiritual being living in a physical reality. This accounts for your dual nature and the fundamental conflict and confusion that permeate your mind and activities. It is the result of separation fundamentally.
God wants you to learn and create in this world and to contribute to its well-being and the value of others, which you could not do if you did not have a marvelous instrument, a marvelous vehicle, a marvelous body in which to function. You could not communicate without this. You could not express yourself. You could not create anything. God loves you even if you seek separation, so God assures that your experience of separation can ultimately be meaningful for you.” Continue Reading ‘The Separation’, click here >>>

You have an origin and a destiny beyond this world. It means that life is eternal even as it passes through this temporary phase of worldly existence.
Be grateful, then, that the relationships you reclaim unto yourself you will be able to keep, for once you have recognized another, you cannot forget that person. The advancement you make here is permanent.
It is only your assessment of yourself that can deteriorate. It is only your ability to meet your destiny in the world that can be offset or denied, thus wasting your valuable time.
Would you want to go through birth and childhood all over again just to arrive at the point at which you are now? Who would want to go through twenty, thirty, forty, fifty, sixty or seventy years of preparation all over again? You do not want to go through all of this again.
Therefore, make full use of where you are now. Your higher purpose is with you. Do not define it. It will define you. Your calling is awaiting you. Do not define it, for it will emerge when you are ready.
Passage from Relationships and Higher Purpose, Chapter 11: Your Purpose and Spiritual Calling.
“In the moment when Grace is shining through you, you will be free.
Grace is shared responsibility … a life that is inspired and determined.
Heaven will teach you how to be in the World in a new way, so Grace can move through you.
God has provided “Steps To Knowledge“, to bring you to Grace.”

“God does not discriminate. God is not delighted with the religious and angry with the unreligious. God has placed the saving Grace within each person. The real purpose of religion is to bring people to this saving Grace. Religion in all of its forms is intended to do this. Even though religion has taken on other manifestations and assumed other purposes and in many cases has been adopted by political forces, this is its fundamental purpose—to bring you to *Knowledge, to bring you to this deeper guiding intelligence that the Creator of all life has placed within you and within each person as a potential.” – What Will Save Humanity (March 30, 2008)
“God does not care what religion you belong to. God is not attached to the theology of any religion, for in the universe there are countless religions. God will respond to the turning of your life, to the opening of your heart, to the emerging need of the soul, the deepest need you have, which is the need to fulfill your purpose as the means of reconciliation” – The Reconciliation (May 2, 2011)
*Knowledge here is ‘The Intelligence Of Spirit’, residing, eternally, within each of us. Learn More About “Knowledge”, here >>>

“Love is not thinking that everything is going to be fine and that God is taking care of everything. Indeed, God has sent you here to take care of everything! Love is a position of self-acceptance,responsibility, cooperation and contribution. That is love. It is clear. It is sober. And it is able to face whatever life brings across its path. Love treats every difficulty as an opportunity. It does not deny the realities of life. It does not seek to gain personal advantage by denying reality. It does not seek to put a happy face on every event of life. This is love. This is God’s love.” – Excerpt: Love and Fear
“There is the Great Love, the love that God has placed within you, within every person, waiting to be discovered, waiting to be expressed and experienced. This love does not have only one appearance. It is not associated with a certain kind of behavior or etiquette. It is not a social convention. This love will pull you away from danger. This love will challenge your thinking and your attitudes. This love will show you that your life is going nowhere. This love will move you to go one way when you want to go another. This love will restrain you. This love will redirect you. This is a Great Love. This is the real thing! Even if you are all alone in life, if you can feel the movement of Knowledge, you will feel the love of God.” – Excerpt: The Great Love
“Grace will emerge suddenly like a warm glow and a hazy feeling that you are not alone and that there is a real confirmation in what has just been said or done. You will feel it initially in a sudden feeling of rightness within yourself and in the sudden recognition and appreciation of another. ”
“You look for Grace; you cannot find it. You open yourself to Grace, and it appears. You claim Grace for yourself, and it is nowhere to be found. You yield yourself to Grace, and Grace gently emerges. You speak the truth—the truth of what you really know, not the truth of what you want or believe—and Grace is standing beside you. You look at the events of your world with compassion and deep understanding, and Grace looks with you.”
“Grace seems to come and go, a momentary experience perhaps, something that is in great contrast to the vast majority of your experiences of being in the world. But it is always there. Think of it like this: It is as if the Greater Self in you and the greater relationship that you have with others momentarily became ignited, as if the ground were illuminated one dark night by flashes of lightning, and for those moments, you realized there is so much there that you could not see before. And after the momentary flashes, you return to darkness. But Grace, for that moment, that tiny moment, has illuminated your life.”
“Honor the world because without your judgment you will realize it is a place of grace, a place of beauty and a place that blesses you as you learn to bless it.”
“Find your way to Grace, and Grace will have a place to abide with you.”
– Excerpts: “Greater Community Spirituality“, Chapter 25, ‘What Is Grace?’
“Your promise, then, is to become a man or a woman of Knowledge—a vehicle for Knowledge; a person through which Knowledge can speak, act and move; a bringer of Grace, but also a person of action who can effect change, but with a greater spirit; who can speak the truth, but with a greater authority; who can reveal error, but with a greater compassion. Grace will be with you because Grace will be in you, and Grace will be with your relationships because Grace will be the foundation for their establishment and for their activity.” – “The Meaning Of Christmas“, Dec 1994
