  Saul Audio Blog for Tuesday June 13th.

All is well!  Do not focus with fear or alarm on the news of catastrophes and conflicts across the world.  Just hold the steady intent to send love and healing to those who are suffering, it will help them to release all that is bringing suffering into their lives.  Even in war-torn areas people can be happy!  Happiness arises when you accept what arises without judgment – negative or positive – and deal lovingly with the issues presented to you.  You are all on Earth to assist in humanity’s awakening process which is, of course, also your own awakening process.  Everyone on Earth is to awaken and needs to awaken into Reality, your natural state where you are Love and you know yourselves as Love.

To awaken is to allow the illusion and all its attachments and distractions to dissolve or disintegrate so that your true nature is no longer hidden from you.  Choosing and intending to be loving will massively alter your perception of the world around you as you recognize that all who are not in alignment with Love are just desperately calling out for Love, your Love.  You chose to be incarnate at this time to be Yourselves and to share and extend Yourselves in Love to all with whom you interact personally, and also to all of humanity.  That is what is meant by the Tsunami of Love.  It is humanity becoming increasingly aware that its true nature is Love, and your intentions bring this into the awareness of those with whom you interact, and to many, many more of whom you are completely unaware.

You are only unaware because of your choice to undergo the severely limited experience that being human provides.  BUT, you chose to be on Earth in this time period because you knew you could assist enormously in the awakening process, and because you wanted to assist.  Love, which is what you are, always seeks to assist those who are calling out for Love – all who are in pain and suffering, regardless of the causes of their pain and suffering.  It is very unloving to look at someone who is attempting to self-destruct and judge them harshly for not ceasing that kind of self-damaging behavior. Many of them come into your awareness to help you to awaken by ceasing to judge them!

Judgment is something everyone needs to release.  It is endemic throughout the world and it leads only to conflict and intense suffering.  Replace it with discernment where you wisely choose those with whom you wish to spend time while neither judging them nor those with whom you choose not to spend time.  You are all individuals with your own specific life paths to follow, each one is unique and was planned with great care, wisdom, and foresight before incarnating so that you would encounter situations that would present you with the lessons you had chosen to receive and learn.

You can have no idea of another’s path or chosen lessons, therefore to attempt to “correct” another is extremely arrogant.  Only offer guidance or advice if and when it is sought.  With your children provide a safe, loving, and accepting environment in which they can grow and develop their own inborn creative gifts, gifts that are frequently very, very different from those of their parents.  As they grow issues of authority and guidance will naturally arise, and you do have the necessary wisdom to deal with these issues non-judgmentally.  Children learn fast, so constant repetition of instructions is not necessary, what is required is that you live true to yourselves, lovingly demonstrating your beliefs by just living them.  Obviously occasional correction is needed so that they learn the social norms of the society in which they are growing up.  As adults, when they have a modicum of experience under their belts they can, if they choose, modify or discard some of the behavioral norms they have learned when they find that they no longer serve them.

A large number of humanity’s glorious creative achievements were made possible by the diversity of personal characteristics that each one involved was able to call on as new ideas were called for to resolve a situation or problem in a friendly, cooperative, and harmonious manner.  In your diversity lies your strength.  And you are strong, very strong, you just choose to focus more on your presumed (i.e. self-judged) inadequacies.  Doing that distracts you from fully developing your own unique talents and abilities.

You all have them, it is just that certain competences and abilities are held up as examples of what various areas of society have “judged” to be the best and most appropriate ones to which children and students should direct their time and effort.  However, all across the world there are shining examples of people who dropped out of school or university to develop their own ideas, and who have been extremely successful.  Do what pleases and inspires you rather than following a well-trodden path that pays the bills but stresses you out or bores you to tears.

You are all creative beings because God, who created you, is creative, and He created you like unto Himself.  Allow yourselves to be you, do not try to be what someone else is.  Honor yourselves as your heavenly Father always does, forgive yourselves for your errors or mis-steps – they are of no consequence – and enjoy being the being that God created as you.

You are all divine beings with vast creative abilities, abilities that can sometimes lie dormant within you for years, gestating and preparing to come on-line at the most appropriate moment in your ongoing human lives.  You all know people who appear to have developed late in life, and often they are judged as having wasted the major portion of their human lives.  This is most definitely not the case.  Some blossom as child geniuses while others delay their creative endeavors until later in life, and both paths, and all in between, are completely valid.  Society’s standards are not God’s, they are frequently unethical, dishonest, and lacking in integrity, and many choose to turn a blind eye to this deficiency.  Later, awareness will arise to show them that they were misguided.  Don’t judge yourselves harshly if that happens or is happening to you, you needed to learn that lesson and therefore hearty congratulations are in order because you have learned it!

To create is your purpose, and you are all, without exception, very creative beings.  However, for many, during their childhood and early adulthood, their creative abilities were suppressed or denied either by the teachers and authority figures who had power or dominance over them, or by themselves as they strove to comply and receive praise, acceptance, and love.  Love is your nature, but as human infants and small children you need to receive unconditional love and acceptance from those adults and older siblings in your family.  Frequently this does not happen, or is not perceived to happen, and when this occurs infants grow up feeling unloved, unacceptable, and are then unable to love themselves or others.  As a result many adults seek help and assistance through psychotherapy with their heavily sensed feelings of inadequacy and worthlessness.

Love is your nature, and deprived of It, although you never are, you suffer enormously.  Those of you reading or listening to this message are aware enough to understand this very clearly.  This and many other channeled messages keep stressing the need for you to recognize this fully and let go of all self-disparagement and negative self-judgment.  When you read messages telling you this they resonate with you, very powerfully, and then you return to your daily living and discard or forget this very important truth!  God loves you infinitely because He created you, so surely you can start to love yourselves?  It is insane not to, and, unfortunately, many are indeed insane.

The world around you – inhabited by family, friends, acquaintances, workplace associates, bosses, politicians, religious and governmental authority figures, and the 24/7 media – is constantly judging and disparaging people and situations, and so Love is mostly unacknowledged and unseen, even though without It you would not exist.

So let me remind you yet again:  “You are all, every single human being without exception, the infinitely loved children of God!”  God’s Love for you is unceasing and is utterly without conditions of any kind, so PLEASE release all your own disparaging and negative self-perceptions because they are completely invalid!  Yes, of course, as humans you say and do things that are not loving, but doing that is not your nature, it is a fearful reaction or response to a person or situation.  Forgive yourselves for these errors, if you have hurt someone then certainly attempt to make amends to heal that hurt.  If the attempt is rejected let it go.  You made an error, you did your best to heal it, now move on without regrets.  Regrets are about the past and the past is past.  Suffering is a result of focusing on past hurts and reliving them, so why would you do that?  You could be living joyfully in the present.

Guilt plays a large rôle in suffering because you replay and replay situations where you could have behaved or spoken differently, while feeling guilty and shameful.  But the whole point is that having learned the lesson you move on, in the present moment, the only time there is.  In the now moment you can be very happy if you don’t focus on your past errors.  Let them go, and set the intent not to repeat them.

When you feel down, lonely, abandoned, go within and ask for a Love squeeze, A N D allow yourselves to open to receive it instead of immediately telling yourselves you are unworthy of it.  You are never unworthy of Love, It is your true nature, It is what you are, and deep within yourselves, if you will allow yourselves to know it you will see that you do know it.  There is only Love!

With so very much love, Saul.

  Saul Audio Blog for Saturday June 3rd

Within the illusion the only constant is change.  You all know this, but you do need to remind yourselves that change is part of the illusion, an aspect of time which is the linear coefficient of the illusory concept that you chose to construct and maintain.  Now that the foundations or underpinnings are collapsing changes are occurring ever more rapidly.  And these changes are especially noticeable in relationships, from personal or family ones to intergovernmental ones.  Change is an aspect of evolution and you are all evolving, and your evolution is basically along a spiritual path, even though vast numbers of you appear to have no spiritual interest or awareness, apart perhaps from believing that anything spiritual is unreal, the result of unbalanced emotional needs being pandered to due to a sense of loneliness, unacceptability, and the fear that that engenders.

Those needs are indeed very prevalent among those who are consciously attempting to follow a spiritual path, and may well indicate the initial signs of a growing awareness that there should be, and indeed is, far more to life than the generally accepted three dimensional materialist egoic drive for more of anything and everything that brings pleasure to your human form.  And, deeply asleep and dreaming, as most humans are, that makes perfect sense.  Anything that appears to provide safety, security, and pleasure to the individual is obviously something that is well worth working for.

Over the last few decades more and more of those who live in the apparent safety and comfort of the materialistically successful parts of the world are becoming increasingly aware of the vast contrast between their way of life and that of the billions who live without basic needs – clean water for drinking and cooking, food, shelter, clothing, and essential sanitary facilities.   They are truly concerned with that vast gulf between the relatively well-off and the impoverished.  The gulf between the inordinately wealthy and the “rest” is an altogether different matter because those extremely wealthy and deeply asleep ones consider themselves entitled to their seemingly privileged lives in their egoic unawareness of the fact that they are even more dependent on others than are other people!  They too will awaken.

This awareness has led to a powerful desire and intent to “balance the playing field,” so that everyone on Earth is treated with the honor and respect to which every created being is entitled precisely because they are the beloved children of God.  That growing awareness is an aspect of the awakening process in which every single human being has a part to play, a task to complete.  It is also very clear that a vast number have absolutely no memory of their pre-incarnational and individual commitment to assist in humanity’s awakening process.

It was clearly understood in the spiritual realms that many, after arriving on Earth as humans, would indeed have forgotten their pre-birth promises.  And that is why there are so many incarnate on Earth at this moment.  Because the numbers of you presently incarnate are so enormous there is absolutely no possibility of the awakening process failing to unfold as divinely planned and ordained.  You could, in your “amusing” human terminology, say that the divine plan for your awakening has an “overkill” provision.  That is, because of the enormous numbers of you involved, there is absolutely no way that it can be unsuccessful because enough of you will remember your pre-ordained tasks and will deliver as promised.

As we in the spiritual realms keep telling you directly, and through the numerous channels we most graciously honor and respect, humanity’s awakening is divinely willed and intended, therefore it most certainly will be achieved.  It already has been achieved, but because of your myopic view of life, focused, as it mostly is, on the illusion and the games you are continuing to play there, you are not seeing the big picture, the Divine Picture, in which all live in joy, peace, and harmony, at One with each other and with God.  That is the state in which you were all created, and that state has NEVER changed, and you have never left it!

What is occurring all over the world is the rapidly growing realization that there truly is no such thing as separation!  Yes, you are individuals in form, individuals in very definitely separate bodies, but large numbers of you are now becoming aware of the fact that everything is intimately connected and INSEPARABLE!  Therefore everything you think, say, or do, affects everyone else, even if you, as humans, cannot actually see this occurring.

God is infinitely wise, compassionate, loving; He is all-knowing because He IS.  AND He created You like Himself.  Therefore, when you designed and constructed the illusion in which you now find yourselves living as small and basically insignificant individuals, you had all His skills and competences, you just chose to use them in an extremely different and unloving way.  You chose separation as a life-style, as a way to prove that you were independent of and had no need of your Source.  But, because there is only the ONE, that was something that could only be disproved, as indeed it has been.  Consequently to attempt to live as separate and disconnected beings is not only impractical, it is impossible and extremely painful, as you are now becoming intensely aware.

Life is truly a most joyful experience unless you choose that it be otherwise.  This is not to blame those of you who are not fully joy-filled – the vast majority of humanity – it is just to remind you that you have free will because Love, God, does not impose, direct, or control.  Therefore your choices, even if you seem unaware or in denial of the possibility that you could have made choices that would cause you so much pain and suffering, are never overruled.  To awaken is to realize that you are free and that life, existence, your conscious awareness is yours to use in any manner that you choose.

The truth of this appears to make no sense at all when you find yourselves in situations or relationships that are extremely painful and from which there is no obvious point of exit.  But the point of exit is the moment at which you choose to engage fully with Love.  When you do this fear, and all that arises through it, loses its power over you, power it never really had.  You just chose to be powerless, i.e. fear-filled.

The whole concept of divine intervention in your lives, a god judging and punishing you for your misdemeanors, is a purely human invention.  You were created perfect and that is unchanging.  But as humans in the illusion, playing games of separation, inadequacy, and worthlessness, you needed a judge to make those calls.  You were emotionally and psychologically unable to accept your own negative self-judgments about your choice to separate from Source and the intense and ongoing pain that choice provides, and so you invented a system of rewards and punishments.

Following on from that you built a societal power structure or pecking order into which each was fitted according to his popularity or craftiness, with the possibility of rising up through that system available, but only for a few, while the rest had to accept their subordinate placement and behave as ordered by the authority figures that the system recognized and supported.

The idea was to destroy all sense of personal autonomy, and it has worked extremely well.  Even those at the highest levels of the system live in fear of relegation or even total banishment.  You see this happening all over the world as people who were in positions of power are criminalized for corrupt activities that are generally no different from the activities of those who judge and condemn them.

This is obviously an insane way to live, and now, finally after eons of pain and suffering, people are allowing themselves to become aware of this.  It is your awakening process.  Initially there is a strong urge to have those seen as responsible stand trial and be punished, which is what has been going on for eons.  What is happening now is the growing awareness that these old ideas just do not work, plus the awareness that all are responsible for this ongoing insanity.  Therefore, to move forward, instead of judging and punishing, open, honest, and clear communication is required leading first to understanding the whys of this insanity, then to reconciliation, and finally to forgiveness.  In the illusion all have sinned, all are sinners, and when that is accepted by all healing can take place.  For there is no sin and there are no sinners, that is all part of the nightmare you have been dreaming.  Love always and only loves and cherishes, that is Reality.

Basically you, the human collective, has made the choice and set the intent to cease playing the games with which the illusion presents you, games that demand deceit and violent competitiveness which always lead to further pain and suffering, and return to operating from your true nature, Love.  Within the illusion, of course, that takes time.  Fear is endemic and has to be acknowledged and released.  Choosing to engage with Love makes that possible.

It is only the collective choice not to be loving that has held you seemingly locked into the nightmare.  Yes, as humans you all want to be loved, but, because of your choice to experience separation, deep within you feel yourselves to be unlovable and you expend enormous amounts of energy seeking Love from someone else “out there,” where you will not find It, because there is no “out there.”

Once again, therefore, I would remind you to take time out daily to “go within,” to the depths of your beingness, and uncover or disclose the Love that is there awaiting your acceptance of It.  You are all infinitely loved in every moment of your eternal existence, the only block to Love is your refusal to accept yourselves completely unconditionally as God does.  Once you open in acceptance you will find yourselves releasing your hold on attitudes and behaviors that are in any way unloving, you will find yourselves seeing Love or the call for Love in others, and you will be powerfully moved to respond to them with Love.  As you settle into this new way of being you will find that you have fewer and fewer reasons to reject or judge others, as you recognize within them the pain and suffering that you underwent before you chose to align with your true nature.

Be Love, offer Love, and open yourselves to receive the Love that is your divine heritage.

With so very much love, Saul.

Saul Audio Blog for Friday May 26th

Humanity’s awakening process appears very strange to many who are just now becoming aware that they are spiritual beings having a very temporary human experience.  As they feel the nudge or hear the call to attend to their inner life, their spiritual life, having given it very little of their time or attention so far, it seems a little threatening and rather demanding.  New interests or occupations often appear a little threatening to humans because they have become accustomed to following a regular routine that works for them and they do not like to change it, and new interests or new occupations always demand change.  If sought they can be exciting and energizing, but if it seems that they are being imposed upon them they resist quite strongly.  With the latter scenario they often go into denial and refuse to address the subject – change!  Change is the only unchanging aspect of the illusion!

Now, on Earth, as those of you who read messages channeled from the spiritual realms are well aware, enormous changes are occurring, changes that can seem to be catastrophic as the old order and the routine it managed collapses. Conflict and violence are arising in many unexpected places as the karmic inheritance of thousands of life-times on the Earth plane come to the surface of humanity’s collective awareness to be acknowledged, accepted, forgiven, and released.  And because the pain and suffering that is being unveiled is so intense, many are in shock.  The safe little world in which so many sought refuge is proving to be nothing of the kind.  It truly is providing an intense wake-up call for humanity, as it leads you toward your awakening into full consciousness, and that, despite all the appearances to the contrary, really is a reason to rejoice.

To rejoice raises your vibratory field, and it inspires you encouraging you to allow your creative energies to flow.  When they flow freely and you engage with them or run with them your motivation to do so intensifies.  You are creators just as God is, and when you are operating creatively, without judgment or anxiety, joy fills your heart.  To create is to be God-like, and because God created you in His own image and likeness you are, like Him, creators.

The human sense of being separate, an individual being apart from all others, encourages a sense of inadequacy because of the limitations that being human imposes upon you.  That is, you see others doing things that you cannot do, and you feel less than them.  You then try to make up for that inadequacy by working harder, studying harder, and getting more qualifications in order to compete with those others and win.  But the whole point of being human is to recognize your own creative side and develop that, which is quite different from any one else’s, in fact it is unique because no one is the same as anyone else.  When you honor your own uniqueness, your own individual creative abilities, and then allow yourself to develop them, you find satisfaction and contentment, and no longer need to measure yourself against others and judge the differences between you as good or bad, right or wrong.

And then, of course, conflicts do not arise.  Conflict arises because your egos keep calling out: “me, me, me!”  And they do that because they feel unsafe, threatened not only by the competences and abilities they see in others that they cannot see in themselves, but also because they do not recognize as valuable their own different creative abilities.

You cannot be as someone else, you can only be yourself, and yet in many cultures there is a continuous and ongoing collective judgment suggesting that if only you could be like someone else you would be much happier, and so would those whose judgment of you you choose to accept as more valid than your own.

But you are you, God created you perfectly as you, and He does not want you to try to be like someone else.  To try and be a better person by being like someone else is to disown yourself and to disown the beautiful being that your loving Father created.  It is in effect a negative judgment of God!

However, God does not take offense, He is perfect, infinite, unconditional Love, and he completely and utterly accepts everyone.  He makes no exceptions because He created you all as perfect aspects or parts of Himself, except that you are not parts or aspects of Him, you are One with Him.  To judge you would be to judge Himself and that makes no sense.

You need to focus intently and regularly on the divine truth that you and God are One.  You need to keep reminding yourself of this.  You have a saying in the large world-wide self-improvement community “Fake it till you make it!”  Well, you have already made it, you are, due to religious, cultural, ethnic, and various other influences that have affected your human growth and development, just refusing to be aware of this.

The original choice to experience separation from God by building the illusion and moving into it included the choice to then be unaware of your divine heritage.  You wanted to undo your eternal relationship at One with God and go it alone, detached, unzipped, disconnected from the Source that is You!  And with your enormously powerful creative energy you managed to construct an environment where it seems that you are alone, a very small and insignificant being in a vast and overwhelming cosmos.  But of course you are that cosmos and all else that exists!  There is only God.  There is nothing apart from Him, and therefore you are Him, but with almost all awareness of that sublime state absent from your awareness while you are in human form.

To awaken, as you are doing, is to once again know yourself as One with God, inseparable from Him, and eternally creating with Him for the delight and joy of doing so.  And that joy is utterly beyond description and beyond your ability to conceive of in your severely limited state of being as a human.  You chose limitation because the idea amused you, but you did not realize how intense that limitation would be or how weak and feeble you would believe yourself to be while confined within a human body.

The body is essential for your sojourn in the illusion and it can provide pleasure and enjoyment as well as pain and suffering, but it cannot possibly embrace the fullness of the energy field that is God, that is Love, that is Reality.  Were it to attempt to do so it would disintegrate instantly and very violently, and you would require a very long period of rest and recuperation from the shock of such a terminal event.

The awakening process has been carefully and divinely planned to ensure that it occurs smoothly, gently, and with an intense experience of being loved.  When you feel the Love that is being offered to you, you will be unable to resist It or retreat from It because Its attraction is so strong.  It will draw you Home, which is where, at the deepest level of your being, you always are.

To awaken demands nothing of you.  All you need do is to allow it to happen.  You have become so accustomed to your severely limiting life as a human that it seems normal, and you are very reluctant to release your hold on it.  It seems to most of you that your human body provides the only form of life available to you, and even if it is very painful you do not want to let it go.

The purpose of going within daily to that holy inner sanctuary where the Light of God’s Love burns continuously is to become gently acclimatized to Love.  Love is POWERFUL!  You have no idea how powerful It is, and when you know yourself once more as Love, as you will, joy and wonder will flood into your heart – the Tsunami of Love – as you become once more aware of Who You are, the divine and perfect child of God, forever at One with Him in brilliance and glory.  All wants, needs, and fears will have dissolved as the Oneness that is God and You are once more consciously recognized and most lovingly embraced.  There is a well known saying: “Home is where the heart is!”  And that is true.

With so very much love, Saul.

My good friend Danna Beal suggested to me a little while ago that we should have a conversation that she would record as an audio and visual presentation that she would then post on YouTube. She was inspired to do this because the workshop we presented together in Seattle last December and again in January was very well received, and with modern communication facilities it would then be possible to present to a wider audience.

This afternoon we had that conversation. We introduced ourselves with a very brief bio and then talked about channeling, getting in touch with our guides, or making contact with those in the spiritual realms. We are always surrounded by loving entities whose purpose is to help us progress along our earthly paths. But we have to ask them to communicate with us, they will not impose on us without an invitation.

Where it seems that they have imposed on someone without being asked, what has really happened is that the earth-bound soul has forgotten her pre-incarnation contract so completely that she needs a wake-up call, and so they provide it. But for most of us it is up to us to start remembering that we have spiritual task to perform here on earth, and then to ask for guidance from our friends who are awaiting our call.

Below is the link to our conversation, please check it out and give us some feedback. If it is positive we shall possibly do a series of conversations to share with you all.

With love,

John.

Life is GOOD!  There is only Life/Love/Source/God.  Pain and suffering, while feeling intensely real, are of the illusion, and will pass.  You can ease your pain and suffering enormously by accepting whatever arises and dealing with it in the now moment!  That may well sound insane to those of you who are suffering and in pain, but if you truly open your hearts to Love, releasing your attachment to any of your attitudes that cause you pain – judgment, blame, resentment, bitterness, hatred – you will find joy, peace of mind, and contentment.  And I can assure you that those attitudes are the cause of your suffering and pain.  When your mind ceases to dwell on hurts you have experienced that were inflicted by others, or by yourselves, your pain and suffering will and does ease.

You hold onto pain and suffering by frequently or constantly dwelling on the wrongs others have done you, or on the sins that you yourselves believe you have committed.  You know this, because when you are in that mode you feel BAD!  Then, when you are distracted from those thoughts by something pleasurable, your pain and suffering are gone, even if only momentarily, before you quickly return to that egoic indwelling state (me, me, me,) of being abused or mistreated.

You established the human condition to experience separation because you thought that to be independent of God would be freeing.  But what actually happened was that you discovered that being alone, isolated, and without support was terrifying.  However, you had forgotten that your natural state, which is Love, envelops and embraces you in every moment, and so you then started to seek Love quite desperately from others.

You are Love.  You cannot therefore find it elsewhere!  You may look and look and look, but you will never find outside yourselves what resides eternally within you.  You have all experienced losing or mislaying something, have gone hunting for it to no effect, and have become increasingly incensed or anxious only to discover, eventually, that it is in your pocket or your purse.  Well, Love is always that close to you!  And you can never “lose” It!

You are never alone!  Why?  Because separation from Source is impossible.  However, you can pretend that you are separate, alone, unsupported, lost, and even abandoned.  Then, when the pain and suffering becomes too intense, you go within to complain bitterly and vociferously: “If there is a loving God, how could He allow me to be suffering so horribly and for so long?”  But with all the noise you are making you drown out the gentle and soothing voice of Love which is forever responding to you when you feel alone and lost.

Once you open yourselves to listen and to hear you do experience a sense of the Love that envelops you constantly, and the more space you make in your human lives to hear the Voice of Love the more effectively and frequently will you become aware of Love’s Presence in your lives.

However busy your lives are with work, family, bill paying etc., it is essential that you take time every day, even if only for a few minutes, to go within to your holy inner sanctuary or altar, and sit quietly with Yourself, the flame of Love that resides there and burns constantly with endless Love for you.  You are One with the little you that you experience in daily life as a human, so allow Yourselves to meet each other daily in that holy inner space where the infinite power of Love is always present and ready to empower you.  That is the most effective, in fact the only way to find peace and contentment, along with the ability to deal competently will all the issues that arise in your daily human lives.

Truly, you’ve got what it takes to live successfully as a human because you are a divine being, even though you are presently choosing to be unaware of your immense power and divine status.  It is not the “me, me, me, me first” power of the ego, it is the calm, vast, and spacious power of the divine being that you are.  That power arises within you as you hold the intent to be only loving, regardless of what is arising in your life in any now moment.  You are powerful because you are one with Source.  Frequently, however, far too frequently, you give your power away to others by seeking to align yourselves with their beliefs and opinions in order to receive their acceptance and approval.

But, as you are very well aware, it does not work.  You can never receive complete acceptance or approval from others because they will always judge you and find something, or many things, amiss, wrong, or objectionable about you.  It’s a “Catch 22” situation, and you are wasting your time and your energy.  Yes, you will get occasional approving smiles of acceptance, but they will always be temporary, even just fleeting.

Your path to sanity, to happiness, to contentment and peace lies within.  It always has and it always will.  Why?  Because you are a child of God created in His likeness and to whom He has given everything of Himself because you are like unto Himself being One with Him, eternally.  The human phase of existence is a minor and very short term excursion from Reality into an unreal world of dreams and nightmares that cannot and will not last.  So, go within daily and find the peace and the Love that you so desperately desire, It awaits you there constantly to soothe and comfort you by melting away the pain and suffering of the unreal dreams and nightmares that seem to assail you from all sides.

Within is peace, without there is frequent chaos and confusion, suffering and pain, an insane environment in which conflict rules and no one wins.  What appear to be “wins” do not last because there is always another who will steal the winner’s crown.  Cease chasing fantasies and settle into the Peace of God that lies within you awaiting your acceptance of It.  The “Thrill of the Chase” is a false concept that leads you away from Reality and into the miasma that is the illusion.

You can awaken from the illusion, you will awaken from the illusion, in fact you are awakening from the illusion because more and more of you are choosing Love instead of fear, and finding how over-rated fear is and has always been.  Go within and accept with joy the Love that calls to you there in every moment. That is Reality!

With so very much love, Saul.

Saul Audio Blog for Sunday May 14th

On Earth as it is in Heaven!”  That is what humanity is aiming for.  In the book A Course in Miracles Jesus talks about the “happy dream,” the place or state from which God will draw you home to Oneness with Him.

Humanity’s awakening, your personal awakening, is the entry into that state where perfect peace prevails in the divine field of Love that is All That Exists.  In that state all that is not in complete alignment with Love has dissolved because none of it is Real, and only what is Real exists.  What is Real is eternal, without beginning or end.  What you experience as humans, while seeming intensely real, is just a dream, often a nightmare, filled with pain and suffering, from which you will awaken because it is impossible to remain lost in sleep and dreaming indefinitely.

As a human the time when you sleep is a time to rest your physical vehicle and restore the energy that physical or mental activity demands and has used.  While the body sleeps the eternal you, the You that is One, is where it always is, at peace in the Oneness that is God.

The egoic self is a very small but very loud and vociferous concept of what separation would be like were such a state possible.  It is like a split off part of the Self with a life and mind of its own.  It, like the body, needs to rest because the concept of separation is very energy intensive and it uses the body’s energy for the games in which it engages.

The main game is “I am alone and afraid, and I need to be loved and protected,” and that game is played out in an innumerable variety of ways as a person attempts to find within the illusion what it lost by choosing to hide from Reality.  But Reality is unaware of what is unreal.  The simplest analogy is that of small children playing games with imaginary characters that they perceive as real, and being upset because their parents cannot see them or hear them and therefore refuse to believe in them.  The parents may pretend to believe in them, but the children see through that façade instantly because the parental responses are quite inappropriate due to their inability to see or enter into the children’s imaginary world.

As the children grow they leave behind that imaginary world and enter their parent’s “real world,” the larger illusion that replaces their small individualized one.  Often the child’s world retained very faint memories of Reality which they were reluctant to let go of, but which, for the most part, they had to discard as they grew older in order to operate in and engage with the illusion, their parent’s “real world.”  All who incarnate as humans have chosen to experience the intense and frightening sense of separation it provides for lessons they have chosen to learn, along with their main task, which is to assist humanity to awaken.  But, as we have noted here before, the illusion, once one is embodied within it as a human, is experienced as intensely real, so real in fact that remembering one’s vital main task frequently becomes impossible.

The main point here is that the human experience is unreal, even though it does seem very real, because the pain and suffering, the exciting adventures, or falling in love bring into your conscious awareness extremely intense feelings, feelings so intense that most people identify with them as being themselves, or at least as an essential and inseparable part of themselves.  Without feelings most think of themselves as lacking a valid identity, and so feelings are very highly valued.  But really, although often extremely intense, feelings and emotions are like the weather, temporary states that come and go but do not last.  Nevertheless, they can be, and often are, held onto in order to prolong sensations, either pleasurable or painful.  In the latter case it is often in an attempt to place blame on another who is thought or believed to have caused you pain or suffering.

Others do not cause your feelings, your feelings are merely reflections of how you see yourselves, and what others do is bring awareness of those feelings to the forefront of your consciousness.  If they are deeply painful and shameful you may deny them and project them outwards, away from yourselves, out of your awareness, and onto another or others.  When you hold onto feelings you can then keep reliving the intensity of pleasure or pain that arose the first time you experienced them.  They can make what has passed and gone appear to be happening again in the present moment as you relive them in your mind.  If something occurs that requires your immediate attention in this present moment, for instance while driving your car, the memory you were reliving fades out so that you can focus on the now moment.

The now moment is the only time that exists, and in the now moment you are constantly being renewed as the perfect child of God in the ongoing moment of eternal creation where you are always perfect because that is how God created you, and what He creates never changes.  Change is of the illusion, and within the illusion it is constant because it is always attempting to move you away from Reality.  On the other hand Reality is always calling you to return Home, to your natural state of eternal joy, where you are fully and eternally alive.

Life is eternal, unceasing, endless.  Therefore you never cease to live.  Human death, the laying down of a human body, is but a change of state, moving out of the illusion back to Reality, which you have never left.  Another analogy: you watch a movie, go to the theater, or read a book and get totally caught up in the story that unfolds – emotions arise, thoughts arise, judgments arise that concern the story – then the story ends and you are back with your own life and story which is quite different from the one in which you were temporarily enfolded and felt a part of.

Your human life is a little like that but, because it lasts for years instead of the couple of hours in which a movie unfolds, it is hard for you to know and understand that it is just a story.  You will awaken into Reality when the story no longer fascinates you, when you decide that you have learnt all the lessons that it has to offer.  You all know someone who seems to inhabit a different world from the ordinary everyday one that most humans experience.  Well understand that that person has just chosen to undergo a more individualized life experience within the illusion than you have.

Your collective more “normal” experience is really not much different from the individualized “abnormal” one of that other person, but because you share it with others it appears more real to you than does the experience that other is undergoing, which you perceive as unreal or insane.  And, in the illusion, where you feel so separate despite your collective and similar experiences, it is comforting to belong to a group of like-minded individuals.  And groups, like people, tend to judge other groups as less valid, less good, or less valuable than their own one.  Within the illusion you could say that there are just varying levels of insanity.

Most of you have had experiences or been presented with lessons that have drastically altered your perception of life and of yourselves.  It could have been meeting and interacting with someone whose beliefs were very different from your own, or having a serious accident or illness, or even a Near Death Experience.  And as a result you have altered your approach to life and to other people because it has in effect been a major “wake-up call” within yourself that has demanded this change.  Normally when that kind of experience arises it is initially very unsettling.  However, as time passes, and acceptance grows of your “new” life perception, you come to find yourselves more at peace with yourselves, better able to “be” yourselves, and no longer seeking the approval or positive encouragement of others by attempting to be other than who you are.  Realization has dawned that who you are is who you are meant to be, and you know that that is just fine, and unchangeable.

You are all, without any exceptions, the beloved and perfect children of God, infinitely loved and completely accepted just as you are, just as God created you, forever One with Him, unchanged and unchanging.  Rejoice then in the certain knowledge that you are always One with your Source which is, of course, also You.  Oneness means Oneness, that there is only Oneness, and that therefore separation is impossible, unreal, totally illusory.  You will awaken into Reality because that is where you are eternally, you had just nodded of for a moment.

With so very much love, Saul.

  Saul Audio Blog for Thursday May 4th

Love is not giving up on people!  There is only Love, as you all well know even if you choose not to acknowledge It, so to give up on It is to pretend that you are not alive, is to close your eyes and go to sleep thus refusing to acknowledge Reality.  That is what humanity has been doing for eons by loading itself with extremely negative self-judgments while it has been playing its games within the illusion that it constructed to experience separation.  The experience of separation was only meant to be momentary, and in truth it was, that unreal state was terminated but an instant after it was imagined into being.  But humanity, you, were captivated and fascinated by it, by being free to play with it and cause mayhem and confusion which were totally at odds with Reality, totally different from anything you had ever encountered, strange, exciting, and challenging.

But then you got lost in the dream you had made and were unable to find your way Home.  It was a little like entering a Halloween stage or movie set and finding yourselves in almost complete darkness, enveloped in clinging cobwebs as strange flying things brushed across your faces and pulled at your hair.  At first it was fun, but Creepy!  And then it appeared to become increasingly real, and you became terrified, you panicked and started attacking everything within reach.

And it is from that dismal and unhappy dream that you are in the process of waking up.  As you do so remnants of the dream, or more realistically the nightmare, flow through your consciousness as weird and unsettling sounds and images.  Do not dwell on them, they are merely unwanted egoic distractions, distractions from your awakening process, so just let them go.  You could think of them as your core issues – issues of pain and suffering from the past buried deeply within your psyche, unacknowledged or denied because they are so painful – that are breaking into your awareness so that you can release them and yourselves from the negative energies on which they feed.

Everyone is dealing with this ancient and buried stuff as part of the awakening process.  Holding onto the angers, bitterness, hatreds, and the resentments that they represent keeps you in the nightmare attempting to resolve them.  There is no need to resolve them, in fact they cannot be resolved, so just acknowledge them, forgive those you believe caused them, and yourselves, and let them go.  They will only stay with you if you continue to dwell on them – hold onto them while thinking about them and apportioning blame amongst those you believe responsible for your pain – after they have arisen to be released or dissipated.

Letting them go will bring you an enormous sense of relief, rather like when a police car, all lights and sirens blaring, appears behind you on the highway . . . and then passes rapidly by on its way to catch some other miscreant.  And that sense of relief will last because you will no longer be shouldering the burden, the weight of that ancient baggage.  Baggage you never needed but with which you chose to burden yourselves.

You are all the beloved children of God, and you are all in the process of awakening from the nightmare of separation and unreality which presents itself to each of you quite differently and independently because it is attempting to prove to each one of you that you are separate and alone.

If what you are experiencing is different from what everyone else is experiencing, and that certainly seems to be the case – obviously your experience is much more intense and painful than anyone else’s then there remains no doubt in your mind that you are a separate being.  And separate beings have to stand up and take care of themselves – look after # 1 – because no one else will or can, even your most dearly loved partners.  You are alone, and death proves that without a shadow of a doubt, because in the end everyone dies, there is no return from it.  And no one has returned to report about it.  It’s not a wonder that, collectively, you have chosen to awaken.

The good news is that you have unlimited resources to assist you in your awakening process – help on a grand scale – because as well as all of us in the spiritual realms who are watching over you in every moment, and answering your calls for help and guidance, everyone whom you meet and interact with in any way at all in your daily lives is on your path in that moment, and can and will help you if you are open to the Love that surrounds you all constantly.  In human terms it may not seem like help in the moment that it occurs, but when you reflect honestly afterwards you can see there was a lesson to be learnt to move you further along your Homeward path.

In every moment you are being helped if you choose to be open to it.  But frequently you entertain preconceived notions of how help should appear and fail to see the help that is there, because you are attempting to control life instead of accepting what arises.  Life always flows at Its own pace, you just need to accept that instead of trying to change it.  “Going with the flow” is a very wise and enlightened approach for humans to take, and when they do, and accept whatever arises, they find the flow is far less turbulent than when they try to direct it, because then there is less conflict and it is conflict that causes turbulence.

God is with you everywhere, in every moment, and He, the Source, Mother/Father/God, wants only for you be in joy.  When you surrender your will to His – in truth your will is aligned with His because you are One with Him – and accept what arises you will deal far more easily and effectively with whatever issues and problems do arise in your daily human lives.  You are always where you are meant to be because you designed a path to follow, with divine assistance, before you incarnated as a human.  To be apparently off your path or diverging from it are just the results of trying to direct life in the direction that you egoically think it is meant to be moving.

When you stop attempting to direct and control the flow of life and instead just allow it, you will find it far easier to deal with whatever arises for you because you will have far more energy, energy that previously you would have been using to change the unchangeable, and in the process exhausting yourselves both physically and emotionally.  Attempting to control the flow of life, even if you think it is “your,” life can never work because you remain almost completely unaware of the multitude of influences at work on it.  There is only One Life!  And that is God, Source, Mother/Father/God, of which every single conscious entity is an inseparable and essential part.

Relax, allow Life to flow – you cannot stop It or change Its direction – and enjoy what arises.  You can choose to enjoy It or you can choose to find fault with it; it is always your choice, and you have all experienced the vast difference in personal feelings and emotional responses that occur when choosing between finding fault with what arises or accepting and enjoying the moment that arises.

You cannot control the life flow, but you can control your choices and responses to it!  And those choices directly affect how you feel in the moment.  You are all very powerful beings, divine children, so use your power to bring you peace and joy.  When you do you directly affect everyone with whom you interact in that moment.  You have all also been aware at times of how your moods affect others in your vicinity.  So choose joy and watch it engage very positively with those around you!

With so very much love, Saul.
