One day when I was in great discomfort, I prayed:
‘Please, save me from pain!’
The Christ responded with: ‘To help you bring forth
My Divine characteristics, so that you can grow ever closer to Me,
Each one of My children of the Earth
Must become familiar with pain.
Unless you have waded through painful experiences yourself,
You cannot hope to ever be able to
Appreciate the depth of another’s suffering.
That’s why your suffering and worldly cares
Are essential parts of your earthly education.
They are My teaching aids which, with the passage of time,
Slowly return you into the conscious awareness
Of your oneness with Me, helping you
To once more become fully united with Me.
Instead of complaining, rejoice!
The more profound your struggles
And the deeper your pain,
The closer your spirit and soul draws to Me.
This is how, for a long time unbeknown to your earthly self,
Your consciousness expands and your soul grows.
Yet, it can only do so through each living their own lives,
Gathering their own experiences, and feeling their feelings,
Sadness as much as joy, and happiness as much as pain.
And whenever something seems too hard or heavy for you to bear,
Wherever you may find yourself, never despair,
But reach out for My hand and call for Me,
And never doubt that I hear you and am there.
I am the only one who can help you work your way through
Every one of your experiences, joyful and sad ones alike.
And although you are but one tiny twig on the tree of life and knowledge,
Each one of you is a many-faceted jewel,
Priceless, precious and loved beyond compare and of immense value to Me.
You are one of the most beautiful flowers in My eternal garden
And I am the gardener, who prunes you constantly,
So that you may flower and mature and bear ever more fruit.’
In spite of all that, I had the audacity to say:
‘Please, give me only the things of life I enjoy.’
And the Christ replied:
‘My dearly beloved child of the Earth,
Isn’t it blessing enough that I have created you and given you life?
From love you have come and to love you are now returning,
For love is My true nature and you being a spark of Me,
It is also yours.
You are on the Earth plane,
So that in the fullness of time you will find
The wisdom and truth that are in Me.
And when I grant you these gifts,
You will be able to appreciate and recognise that
Everything that is in your life is a loving sacrifice from Me.
This includes all things, people and every experience
That will ever come your way.

Our world is bound in darkness, until we shine the light;
You, with your own vision – and I, with my insight.
