As many of you know Mary Reed is presently touring in the United States to speak about Love from the mystic’s perspective.
I am posting this notification of her visit to Vermont and New Hampshire to encourage those of you who live within a 3 hour driving range to come and hear her speak (you will enjoy the stunning Fall colors during your drive). If you live too far away, as I am sure most of you do, then tell a friend or loved one who lives close enough to attend by sending them a link to this and to her web site, where, if you cannot attend, you can make a donation to help her continue her amazing work.
She will be speaking at the North Universalist Chapel Society Church at 7 Church St., Woodstock, Vermont on Monday October 3rd at 6.30pm.
And she will be speaking at the Friends Meeting House, 43 Lebanon St., Hanover, New Hampshire on Thursday October 6th at 6.30pm.
The following is taken from her web site (www.unwittingmystic.com)
This year I’m going to do something a little different: with few exceptions, I’m going to talk about only one thing. Because it is the most important thing the world needs to hear right now.
Using the unique lens of mysticism through which I view both Divine and earthly realms, I’m going to reveal what love really is. And it is not what what most people think.
I’m going to talk about why humans can’t get out of bed every morning and just blissfully love themselves.
I’m going to talk about why love hasn’t been able to make suffering go away.
We are all incarnate at this point in humanity’s spiritual evolution to carry the Light of divine Love on high to assist in the awakening process that humans are presently undergoing, and Mary is doing that extremely powerfully and brightly. She lives very frugally and relies on loving people like ourselves to help her tour to share and extend the Love that we all carry to those among us who are still deeply asleep.
If you wish to hear more about Mary, then watch or listen to her interview with Karl Fink on YouTube, it is excellent
Humanity’s awakening is so close that your awareness that it is occurring is intensifying enormously – you feel it enveloping you – and yet you still experience the illusion as very real. And this feels very confusing for you. It is as though you were locked into that moment you experience as humans as you wake up after sleeping but in which you are still not fully awake, your dreams are gently dissipating and consciousness is returning, but you have not yet fully engaged with it.
There is no one now incarnate on Earth who is completely unaware of the enormous changes that are in progress. Even those who are caught up in the gloom and doom that the mainstream media consistently regurgitate, or those living in conflict zones, areas of intense poverty, or refugee camps are, at a deep level, aware that something of enormous importance is occurring.
You who are reading or listening to this message are, of course, well aware, but are also, at times, experiencing severe doubts because, and as you interact with others who are caught up in the media’s catastrophic information onslaught, you encounter the negative and even despairing energies to which they are so firmly attached, and then, instead of observing them and letting them pass, you engage with them and get drawn in, thus intensifying your own doubts .
It is therefore essential that you continue your daily practice of going within in order to boost your reception of the divine Love flowing continuously within and through you that supports you magnificently in every moment, so long as you open your hearts to receive It. Love is your true nature, but the distractions of the illusion have intensified, as those who wish to continue engaging with it and playing the games it offers desperately attempt to repair and stabilize its rapidly crumbling foundations. Thus it is easy for you to allow those noisy and very disturbing distractions to cloud your awareness of your purpose on Earth in this time of change, as humanity’s long-sought awakening into the realization of its true nature, which will allow the return to full consciousness, finally blossoms.
As you well know, your purpose is to hold your Light on high and intend to extend it to all of humanity without exception, and in doing so to remember in every moment that It is the eternal and inextinguishable Light of God’s Love for all of His creation. As soon as you notice that the distractions of the illusion have drawn your focus away from your divine purpose immediately reset your intention to be loving in every moment and in every situation.
Your loving intention is extremely powerful, just as God wills, and affects not only those with whom you come into physical contact but every incarnate being presently on Earth. You tend to forget that you are not your physical forms, your human bodies, but are actually VAST energy fields of Love at One with God and all of creation. This realization is hidden from you temporarily by the flimsy and ephemeral veil that envelops the illusion.
Your task, as the awakening process accelerates and intensifies, is to remain focused on being Yourself! You are eternally One with Source, You have never separated from Him, but as you follow your individual human paths through the illusion, bringing with you and extending to all an abundance of Love for humanity, the draining energies of negativity do affect you. Remember that within the illusion all is illusory. Therefore your fears, worries, anxieties, and the depressing emotions that accompany them, are also utterly illusory. Only Love is Real, and It is eternal and always present.
You have all experienced moods, either euphoric or distressing, that have realized themselves within you and then passed away, but which felt very intense while they were occurring, so much so that they seemed, while you were experiencing them, to be your normal state. Then they dissolved and you returned to what your presence in the illusion does recognize as normality, proving that nothing within the illusion lasts, all is ephemeral. Consequently it is also quite clear that nothing in the illusion is normal!
It frequently fools and confuses you into believing that it is the only reality, because that is what is was established to do, and you become engrossed in the games with which it presents you. The main confusion is the strong and intense belief in the reality of your personal identities as human bodies. What follows from that is your constantly sensed need to provide for them and protect them from the attacks of others, and from injury and disease. They are without doubt separate and fragile homes from which you experience life, and their continued survival frequently seems severely threatened.
However, You are not your bodies! You are divine Beings of immense power and energy, Divine Energy, constantly in the presence of our Source and One with It, because separation from Source is impossible as Source is All That Exists. Allow yourselves to accept the Truth of who You are, trust It implicitly, and delight in the joy that knowing that brings you. And that joy can only be found within, what you see outside is illusory.
I am just now watching Rick interviewing Tom Campbell on Batgap back in November 2014. It’s really fascinating if you can find time to watch or listen (podcast) it runs about 2hrs 20mins. As a brilliant physicist he talks in a way that non scientific people can understand. He says the answer to everything is . . . LOVE! if you are prepared to hang in there while he converses with Rick.
Your loving intentions are changing the world – MIGHTILY! As you visit your favorite on-line news and spiritual web sites you are presented with enormous amounts of information confirming this. All that is required of each of you is that you relax daily into your holy inner space, where the divine Light of Love burns constantly on your holy altars, and restate your intent to be loving in every moment and in every situation, because that is what is changing the world.
And of course you are not doing it on your own, the full power and might of God’s Will is added to your intent. You cannot fail because God’s Will is always achieved, so let go of worry and anxiety, both are distractions from living, and you were created to live. Instead, intend to deal successfully with whatever arises in the moment that it does so, and with the firmly held intent to be loving in every moment you will find you have whatever you need to deal with it. Life can be very simple if you allow it to flow through you instead of focusing on certain moments and attempting to prolong or resist them. There is only flow! To be motionless is impossible. When you sit quite still meditating all your bodily energy systems continue to function, and the life force – Love – continues to flow through you, and in your meditational state you are more likely to notice this constant and loving flow bringing you to a beautifully relaxed state of inner peace.
As you keep being informed, and I will reiterate it yet again: “You, every human, every conscious entity that God creates (remember there is only the present moment) is perfect and infinitely loved.” That state of being can never change, it is permanent, eternal. Therefore remind yourselves constantly of this, until you accept the truth of it and find that you truly KNOW it! Deep within you, you do know this, you have just temporarily forgotten it, and that is why we in the spiritual realms need to keep reminding you. Release all your doubts about being worthy, good enough, or lovable, because you are infinitely and eternally worthy, good enough, and lovable. In fact you are eternally and infinitely beyond worthy, beyond good enough, and beyond lovable, because you are most magnificent beings of brilliant Light, just as you were created.
Once you make the decision to accept yourselves unconditionally just as God does, and set the intent daily to honor total and unconditional acceptance of yourselves in every moment, you will very quickly find that you feel freer and happier than you have ever felt in your lives before. You will cease to judge and disparage yourselves, and anxiety and self-doubt will just fall away. Surely you can see that you owe it to yourselves to trust and believe in yourselves completely when God, in His infinite wisdom, does so for all eternity?
When you accept that you are perfect divine beings, then you automatically allow the divine field of Love to flow through you in every moment without restriction or resistance on your part, and the whole world is healed. You incarnated to help with humanity’s awakening, and you do this by just being yourselves in every moment, because being yourselves you are Love in action, constantly, and that is precisely what the world needs.
One of the most difficult things for you to deal effectively with as you live as humans is the loss of memory of your true and eternal divine state at One with God living eternally in His loving Presence. It leaves an enormous hole in your sense of identity, a hole you are constantly attempting to fill by seeking outside yourselves for the Love you no longer feel within. As children you attempt to please your parents, then your teachers, as well as your peer group, and no matter how much love and acceptance you find, it is never enough.
You become adult, leave the parental home, find employment, enter relationships, set up your own home, and still something very important is missing. It seems that others are content and you wonder what they have that you do not, but truly others are also feeling this lack, just as you are. Very few will talk about it or admit their lack because all have come to believe the lack they feel is due to their own inadequacy or deficiency, and they are to a certain extent ashamed of themselves. In fact the pain of that can be so intense that it is frequently denied, buried, and the underlying anxiety that causes often leads to addictions or even to suicide.
I am spelling this out because I want you to understand absolutely clearly that none of those inner anxieties or doubts about yourselves are in any way valid. Everyone experiences them because they are major aspects of the separation scenario that you have been playing out for eons, they are what drive you so powerfully to achieve . . . anything! You seek desperately without for what can only be found within – Love – and there you will find It in abundance. Within there is no shortage or scarcity, there is only and always abundance.
Truly you have no needs, because when you were created God gave you everything! You lack for nothing, but because you have identified so intensely and powerfully with your bodies – form instead of content – which do need your loving and compassionate attention, you have utterly forgotten your true nature, leading to your almost constant fear that something might go wrong. Nothing can go wrong! Whatever arises for you was placed on your path for the lessons that you chose to learn as a human before you incarnated.
God did not dump you thoughtlessly somewhere on Earth and leave you to make the best of it. Nor did He place you in situations as punishment for your sins. You are perfect beings, utterly sinless who chose to experience separation from Source and collectively built the environment in which you find yourselves for that sole reason. You did not realize that you would completely forget your true nature, and it is through not knowing who you are that all your suffering arises.
However, the Holy Spirit, the Voice for God is with you in every moment to help you find your way Home, your way within. Ask for help and you will receive it, but to hear the guidance that is offered it is essential that you quiet your minds that fill so easily with ego-driven thoughts designed to distract you. Go within daily to that place of peace and beauty that holds your holy altar where the Flame of divine Love in which You and God are One reside, and rest there in quiet stillness until you can hear God’s Voice. Feeling completely at peace within the depths of your infinite vastness is listening to the Voice for God and hearing It, and in that moment you will understand that you are never alone.
These are interesting times! Humanity is moving very positively into awareness of its spiritual heritage, of its Oneness with Source from which it has never for a moment been separated. And that is inspiring, uplifting, and extremely exciting! In fact humanity is most definitely established on the collective path to awakening, although, of course, each individual has his or her own personal path that is different from everyone else’; no two are the same among the many billions presently incarnate on Earth.
Here in the spiritual realms, where we constantly watch over you lovingly and compassionately, we are truly in awe at what you are achieving. You have made the collective decision to awaken from the dream or nightmare and you are most positively implementing it. Great changes are in the process of transforming your attitudes toward each other and God. Love now pervades the Earth plane and is penetrating every heart that has not made a conscious choice to block It or lock It out.
Everyone on Earth wants only to be loved, because Love is your natural and eternal state, and after eons of seeking it outside of self the vast majority have finally realized that Love is within them, not outside. Accepting the Love within is the way forward, and that is done by accepting that you, each and every one of you, are perfect divine beings infinitely loved by God. When you accept that truth you realize that to love yourselves, just as you are, is the only task, the only duty that you have to complete, and when you do that Love flows freely, smoothly, abundantly, and continuously as divinely intended, embracing all without exception.
By loving yourselves as perfect divine creations you allow your energy fields to expand to infinity instead of keeping them limited and tethered to your physical bodies on a short leash. When you do that they all meld and mingle with each other, completely changing the energy field of humanity and Planet Earth, as all then engage in harmonious cooperation instead of in bitter and divisive argument and conflict.
The melding or integrating of your individual energy fields is an intense ongoing process. Yes, you are all One, butyou chose to experience separation and to do that you closed off your energy fields by restricting your individual access to the divine field of Love in which you are all contained, and thus apparently separated yourselves one from another and from God by enclosing yourselves in individual physical forms. Doing so gave you control over that form, allowing you to hide who you really are from yourselves and from one another. You became actors, sometimes with many parts, in the illusory game that has been your seeming reality for eons. And it has been threateningly and fearfully real for most of you!
Well, you have had enough. You are seeing that conflict and the intense need to be right, to which so many cling, is destroying human society everywhere on Earth and doing unconscionable damage to the planet and all the other life forms that she supports. You are finally realizing that you can change your attitudes, your destructive beliefs, and your insane and intolerable ways of treating those with whom you disagree. Disagreements almost always escalate because your egos encourage you to hold your initial position, your perception of what the disagreement is about – regardless of clear evidence demonstrating that you have in fact misperceived what the disagreement is really about – and do their best to convince you that their fear, fear of defeat, i.e. loss of face is utterly justified.
Egos live in fear, it is their nature to be fearful. You originally set them up to cope with ordinary everyday tasks, leaving you free to explore your illusory environment. However, they have no wisdom, no real knowing, and they truly believe that the illusion is real. Therefore if you dismantle the illusion they will cease to exist, and that terrifies them. But, like the illusion, they are unreal! They are just a tiny closed off section of your mind – the divine mind that you share with your Source – that you set aside for precisely this purpose. They will not cease to exist when the illusion is dismantled but will merely be reintegrated into the One Mind, from which they, like you, have never been separated.
When that happens all fear will dissolve as all finally recognize themselves as eternally One with God, and forever inseparable from that state.
God is Love, each one of you, every human, is One with God, and inseparable from Him, therefore you too are Love. There is nothing else, and realization of this, and all are coming to the most dramatic awareness of this, is waking you up.
So, as we keep on reminding you, go within at least once daily, attend to the altar within, where the flame of Love burns continuously, by opening your heart to allow It to flow abundantly where It will. And where It wills is to every one of God’s beloved children to assist them to awaken to the knowledge of who they really are.
Realization of humanity’s divinity will no longer be dismissed as an insanely arrogant belief but embraced with enthusiasm as you once more come to know it at the depth of your being. Then all sense of inadequacy, worthlessness, or sinfulness will fall away like discarded old clothing that is no longer fit to clothe such a wondrous being.
As it says in the Bible: “The Kingdom of Heaven is at Hand!” Very soon you will know that is the Truth, as you feel the divine embrace that envelops all as they delight in the joy of being eternally awake in the Presence of God.
