All sentient life — and all life is sentient — is divinely created, divinely loved, divinely honored, and divinely cherished. Consequently, to judge yourselves or others is totally inappropriate. However, not to do so is hard for you because, within the illusion that you have built and continue to maintain, you see people, bodies, egos, working mainly self-centeredly to improve their status, their wealth, their power, and seeking happiness as a result of these unreal but dearly-hoped-for achievements.
When you chose to believe in and enter the illusion, you chose to leave behind your wisdom and other spiritual aspects that would cramp your style. You could not, of course, really leave them behind because they are eternal and inseparable aspects of yourself, but as it was an illusion you were able to pretend that you had. And having invested in that pretense you were able to play a very intense game of improving your situation at the expense of others.
However, you soon discovered that, with your abilities newly limited and restricted by the environs of the illusion, you needed help if you were to attain those improvements, and so you started to team up with some over against others who were then considered enemies. But because of your implicit intent to look after yourself alone, betrayal, beguilement, and cheating became commonplace even among those who were supposedly on the same team.
The consequent utter lack of success of those methods – which has been made abundantly clear in the last one hundred years or so, when your impressive new technical killing abilities still failed to authoritatively bring widespread peace into being and eradicate poverty – finally convinced you that the illusion, and all its illusory philosophical, intellectual, and scientific developments, could never bring you the peace, prosperity, and security you were so desperately seeking.
That conviction is the saving grace you needed to encourage you to look for better ways to achieve a lasting state of peace and harmony on the planet. Many have sought to persuade you that to treat your peers with respect and due deference could bring order and stability to society, and where it was tried limited success has occurred. However, there were always some who chose to undermine the system for their own ends, and so lasting peace was never achieved.
Now it is obvious to even the least clear-thinking that this constant escalation of threat and counter-threat, coupled with self-serving agendas promoted by those with special interests, has to cease or you will destroy yourselves. A great movement has arisen in which clear- sighted individuals with loving hearts and powerful intellects are communicating widely and sharing information and ideas that are going to lead you out of the morass of deceit and confusion which surrounds you.
A new age is being born because it has been realized that it is essential, and because the outpouring of transparent information-sharing that has recently become possible allows trust and respect for one another to spread far and wide, demonstrating that it can indeed be born.
This New Age has been in gestation for a long time, and its birth is imminent and inevitable. It will not be stillborn. Much planning and training has been involved in preparing for this moment in your evolution because, despite the selfish nature of the vast majority of human activities, there are many wise ones among you who have been sharing constructive ideas in order to move humanity on to a new path that will bypass the disorderly and unworkable social agendas that seem to have enslaved you for so long.
A new society of caring, compassionate, thoughtful, and loving people is growing among you, and everyone is invited to become an active member. Word of this is spreading through the worldwide communication networks, and any who are interested in informing themselves about these uplifting developments will find that enormous quantities of data are readily available.
The incredible amounts of assistance and encouragement flowing in from the spiritual realms are gently permeating humanity’s consciousness and bringing into your awareness the realization that not only must there be a better way to live together on the planet, but that there is indeed a better way. It is seen wherever love meets confrontation and disagreement, offering neither defense nor attack, but instead enabling an open sharing of views and desired goals.
When positions are clearly spelt out there is always a resolution available that will solve any issues to the satisfaction of all involved. When openness and transparency are avoided in order to gain advantage over another, resolution of issues becomes impossible because distrust becomes the issue. Distrust has been endemic in human relationships on all levels for most of your recorded history, and the results have been disastrous. Peace and harmony rely on trust, and trust has to be learnt, demonstrated, and honored in every situation.
Humanity has now reached the stage where it is ready to exercise this vital moral excellence. Communities all over the world have been trying to live it on a small scale for quite some time with far more success than you might have thought possible. As a result of these uplifting experiences, the courage to extend trust on a far larger scale has strengthened, and it is these accepting and open ways of living that are set to spread across the planet.
The time for policies of subversion, conflict, betrayal, and distrust is coming to an end. They cannot succeed in their aims, as has been proved time and again when agreements have been broken and further suffering for many has ensued.
Trust is the way forward, and humanity has finally chosen that path. The vast majority want to trust and be trusted, and they are now pledging themselves to do so in recognition that it is the only sane way to live. And because it is now becoming impossible to hide motives, agendas, and information, success is guaranteed. Those who would maintain the old ways are being sidelined, the truth is coming out, and your future is taking on a glorious golden hue.
With so very much love, Saul.
