The Great Jigsaw Puzzle Of Life – Part Four

Loving God’s Way


Section 1



The rose is a symbol of love. It is the queen of the flower kingdom that for a long time has occupied a special place in the religions of your world. And to this day, its colours have a distinct meaning: red is the lover’s rose that stands for enduring passion; white for humility and innocence; yellow for wisdom and also for friendship and joy; pink for gratitude, appreciation and admiration; orange for enthusiasm and desire; lilac and purple represent enchantment and love at first sight. Apart from its beauty, the rose also has thorns and, like love, when it is not handled with the care and reverence that something of such exquisite beauty and fragrance deserves, it has the power of providing those who pick it carelessly with a painful sting.

A new commandment
I give unto you:
That you love one another,
As I have loved you,
That you love one another
As I have loved you.
If you have love for each other,
All people shall know that
You are My disciples.

Roy Crabtree
Adapted by Aquarius

Love is your true nature and the Source of your being. The above song is based on the Bible’s St. John 13:34 and to this day it is misinterpreted by many in your world. That is not surprising because of humankind’s limited understanding of its own true nature and Mine, and what love really means. I am the Universal Christ, the only born Son/Daughter of the Great Father/Mother of all life, and every one of you is a spark of Me. I am the voice of the Divine Trinity who speaks to you intuitively. I am your inner teacher, your in-tuition, the living God or wise one within you, the long promised new teacher of your world.

I am every human being’s higher or God nature and with the Jesus legend the Angels and I provided humankind with illustrations of the initiations that are in store for all of you when the end of your earthly education approaches. At the right moment, the birth of the Christ spirit takes place in every heart and soul. This brings with it the resurrection of the highest and noblest qualities that are every child of the Earth’s Divine inheritance. The love of honesty and truth are part of this development. The birth of the Christ child is a symbolism of this process.

During your lifetimes as an earthly being you eventually reach the point when the drives and urges of your lower nature begin to be of less interest and are leaving a bad taste in your mouth behind. Your interest in pursuits of a higher nature awakes and you happily to surrender to them. This is happening because from deep within you, the characteristics of your higher or God nature are pushing to the surface of your consciousness. They are helping you to turn into a kinder, friendlier and more loving person. The more this aspect of your being takes over and your true self emerges, the more you discover that you are happiest when you are loving for love’s sake and giving for the joy of having something to give and someone to give it to.

Life itself has always been humankind’s teacher and each can only grow and evolve through their own experiences. Now you are learning that wishing to command or possess others has nothing to do with love but is merely an expression of small and frightened earthly selves who try to cling, with all their might, onto whatever they think they own and love. It takes a long time until you realise that what many on the Earth plane think of as love is nothing of the kind.

The ultimate aim of your earthly curriculum is to become ever more God-like and that includes learning to love My way, i.e. loving for love’s sake in a manner that has nothing to do with people’s earthly personalities at any given moment but is detached from it. My love is total and unconditional, without expecting or asking anything in return. This does not mean condoning other people’s behaviour and their misdeeds, but treating them with the love and respect they deserve as My children and your spiritual sisters and brothers. Even if you do not like someone, you can still love them and to the wise ones in charge of you in the background of your earthly existence your way of reacting to anyone reveals the degree of your spiritual maturity. And the time will come on the Earth when all of you are loving My way. Every one of your thoughts, words and deeds will then be proof of your Divine origin and that you truly are My children.

But so that this can happen in the fullness of time, we need to return to the Jesus legend for a moment. By the way he behaves, especially when he commands his disciples to love each other, from where you are by now it is not hard to recognise that the God-man. A genuine spiritual Master would not dream of ever commanding anyone. There would be no need for that because his disciples would also be highly evolved spirits who want to walk in their Master’s footsteps and become ever more like him. The words of the commandment are one of the finest examples to show your world that Jesus was no spiritual Master, as he would have been if he had ever existed in earthly life and walked in your midst.

But what is he? A thoughtform created by the Angels and Me who represents the higher or God nature of every human being. To evolve into someone like the legendary Jesus, half God and half human, that is the aim every one of you has always been striving for since you were first placed in earthly life. The words of the commandment were purposely kept as if they had been composed by someone who had no idea about the nature of My love. This was done so that later – when the time for discovering the truth about Jesus had come – it would not be difficult to see who and what he really was.

- To be continued. -

The Great Jigsaw Puzzle Of Life – Part Four

Loving God’s Way


Section 2

The Age of Aquarius is the time your world has been waiting for and the religions of the past with their misunderstandings and misinterpretations, intentionally and otherwise, are in the process of making room for the religion of the new age, which is based on honesty and truth. The old religions were of the head, but the new one is of the head and heart. Aquarius, the sign for the development of humankind’s mental faculties, is in polar opposition with Leo, the sign for learning how to love from the heart. On the inner level the two signs are one and when in you they are joining forces and are working together, your heartmind takes over your whole being and life.

From first hand experience you then know that Divine love does not seek to dominate or possess anyone. It never makes prisoners of others, but has only the wellbeing and spiritual progress of the loved one(s) at heart. This love gives you the freedom to conduct your life the way you wish it to be and allows you to make your own mistakes. Doing so is good for you because otherwise you would be unable to learn anything. That’s why you want this for every human being and you would not dream of interfering with anyone’s life lessons. Because humankind’s earthly existence has always been one of trial and error, you leave them to find things out for themselves. The same as you have to do, your loved ones need to stick their toes into the waters of life and see what happens. That has always been the only way human beings can grow in wisdom and understanding so that, in the course of many lifetimes, they learn how to make wiser decisions and choices.

A true spiritual Master would tell his disciples about these things and then instruct them to go out and spread the joyous tidings far and wide that the truth about My being and yours is no longer hard to find. All people have to do is look beneath the surface words of the sacred texts of the religions of your world for the symbolisms and metaphors that have always been hiding there. Now that the Cosmic energies are right and the age of the Divine Waterbearer and of truth is with you, every one of you potentially is My disciple. All of you eventually reach the evolutionary point when they are ready not only to receive but also to understand the sacred wisdom and truth the Angels on My behalf are constantly pouring into your race’s individual and collective consciousness.

As above, so below. For those who are loving My way good manners are a matter of course because they are part of humankind’s higher nature. The Angels and I are delighted when grateful words of love and devotion for gifts received are spoken by those who are waking from their spiritual slumber and realise that whatever they are receiving does not just happen but has to be produced by someone. For example, their daily bread. Yes, the farmer sows the wheat and harvests it. But who makes it grow and thrive? The beings who are toiling, invisible to earthly eyes, by day and night and in this way are providing for humankind’s every need.

The Great Jigsaw Puzzle Of Life – Part Five

Conclusions

Section 1


Occasionally, human love comes your way. The same as everything else in your life it is a gift from your spirit friends and helpers, but not without having been earned by you in the first place. It’s the Universal laws’ way of returning to you something you created in previous lifetimes and earlier in this one. The Angels and Masters are making sure you are drawing it towards yourself at the right moment. You have deserved the love of other human beings and now it’s up to you how to deal with it. Your behaviour and reactions show the wise ones in the background of your earthly existence how far you have come on the road of learning to love My way, complete with wisely knowing when to give and when to withhold something.

Respond to the loves that enter your life as best you know how to and never forget that nothing in earthly life belongs to you, least of all people. At the end of each lifetime everything that was given to you was on loan and has to be handed back in as good condition as possible. The only thing you can take with you into Eternity is the spiritual growth you have achieved in the earthly school of life. This wealth will be yours forever and do not underestimate its value, because the belief that human beings enter earthly life with nothing and leave it the same way is a false one. Spiritual riches are of enormous value, for they are also the only possession you bring with you into every new lifetime. At any given moment they are stored in the memories of your soul and accompany you into every future lifetime.

On every occasion you are bringing with you the thought and behaviour patterns you developed in the course of all previous earthly sojourns. Included in this are your fears and anxieties, false beliefs, prejudices and superstitions. They are waiting to be changed and overcome, respectively, through more enlightened ways of being that expand your consciousness through new knowledge that will be coming your way. All of this is stored in your subconscious mind. From the moment you draw the first breath of a new lifetime they are influencing everything you think and do, in either positive or negative ways. And what kind of a person you are going to be more than anything else depends on the evolutionary level you reached before entering into your present lifetime.

Nothing in earthly life belongs to you. Everything is a gift on time and all together you are attending the earthly school of life so you can act as teachers and pupils at the same time. The people you draw into your orbit and with whom you fall in love are the ones who are teaching you how to love. After many lifetimes your higher nature wakes up and you start to bring forth, from deep within your own being, your better, finer and nobler character traces. Slowly but surely you then evolve into someone who is like Me, who loves people the way I do, totally, unconditionally and in a detached manner that knows nothing of needfulness and has no time for possessing and holding onto anything. Loving My way is easy when you can see the whole picture and are aware that on the inner level all life is one and there is no separation between anything.

Love and thought are the greatest powers in the whole of Creation. Bonds of friendship and love that have been created between individuals and also within groups cannot be destroyed by anything. Being aware of these things, you refuse to make a prisoner of anyone and when someone you love wants to leave you, you set them free. Safely you rest in the knowledge that, if there really is love between the two of you, the spiritual aspect of this relationship will never die. On the contrary, it is bound to increase the more physical distance is between you, maybe sufficient for the loved one to return to you physically, too. That’s how the saying ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’ came into being.

Loving My way never forces anyone to do anything. My kind of love may coax and cajole and invite loved ones to take part in something, but no more. This is how I have always treated every one of you, My beloved children of the Earth, and that will forever continue. There is no need for clinging onto the life I have given to you or anything within it. Let your heart be filled with faith and trust that when one door in your life closes, another one is already open and waiting for you. So take the hand of the Angel when it comes to free you from your earthly shackles and chains. By acting upon this knowledge and letting go whenever the time for doing so has come can save you a great deal of suffering that could easily have been avoided.

Once you are loving My way, you will discover that this feeling is not like a switch that can be turned on and off. Now you are loving people for who they truly, independent of how they behave and what they do to you. My love for every human being is not about who you presently are in earthly life and what you are doing. Loving with this kind of detachment is a freeing experience. When you and with it your ability to love has moved onto the necessary level of consciousness, you will find that whenever someone stops loving you, you do not feel like doing the same to them. You cannot see any point in that. When you understand who and what people truly are, where they have come from and what kind of high and holy destiny is in store for every one of you, forgiving and continuing to love them is the most natural thing in the whole wide world for you.

Getting to this state of consciousness is much easier than you may think. The only thing you need is a better understanding of your opponent’s motivations. There is no finer instrument than astrology for getting to know someone’s predestined pathway in broad outlines. No casting of horoscopes or intensive studying of the subject is necessary. All you want to know is people’s main life lessons and the struggle they are likely to have with overcoming the negative aspects of their Sun and Moon signs and integrating the positive ones into their character make-up. See the relevant links at the end of this chapter.

It’s not that loving My way makes you blind, far from it. When you are looking at life with the vision of the greater picture, i.e. complete with the spiritual background of everybody’s present existence, you can still see people’s flaws and idiosyncrasies. But you know that everybody is on the same evolutionary pathway and will eventually have grown into a God-like being. Besides you are aware that all human beings have everything within, the very best as well as the worst; that you can only change yourself and not others, and that what they are going through is but a passing phase of their evolutionary pathway and a tiny piece in the great jigsaw puzzle of life. This knowledge frees you to love people, not merely your nearest and dearest but everybody, just the way they are.


- To be continued.

The Great Jigsaw Puzzle Of Life – Part Five

Conclusions


Section 2

Words like vengeance and retribution have no room in the dictionary of loving My way. My Universal laws were designed with love and so that in the fullness of time everything would take care of itself. There is nothing but teaching and learning in the great school of life that is the whole of My Creation, including the earthly plane. Through their own experiences and in the course of many lifetimes everybody in your world gets to know all aspects of My nature and their own, starting with the lowest level and each working their own way up to the highest. Even though for a long time human beings are unaware of this, hand in hand with the Angels and Me, every one of you is relentlessly searching for consciousness expanding experiences that help you to grow in wisdom and understanding. All of you are as much part of Me as I am of you. Each one of you is a manifestation of life through which My knowledge constantly increases.

The religions and philosophies the Angels and I once presented to your world still are vital parts of the great jigsaw puzzle of humankind’s earthly existence. Yet, for as long as the majority of people lacked the knowledge of the spiritual background of their existence, for wise higher educational reasons they turned into nothing more than obstacles. And if you now took a closer look at your world, without bearing in mind the spirit realm and the part it plays, you could not help the feeling that not a great deal on the Earth is making much sense. I would not hold it against you, if you then asked yourself: ‘Where is the love the religions of our world are speaking of? I cannot see much evidence of that. Are we born merely to die, after however many years of being here, after all? What’s the point in that?’

In spite of the warmongering and open hostilities are still rampant in some parts of your world, and the havoc that is created by religions that have long lost their validity and usefulness, take heart, My beloved children of the Earth. These belief systems are in the process of being replaced by a new religion that supports humankind’s spiritual progress on the evolutionary spiral of life. When it rules supreme, as it soon will be, there will be no more excuses for slaughtering, robbing and maiming adventures for the testosterone driven patriarchal religions. Their remnants have not yet gone from your world, but they soon will do.

For quite some time, the Angels and I have been working on preparing your race for its rightful place in the Universe. A vast evolutionary cycle is closing and with the coming of My truth the religious beliefs that separate human beings from each other, are disappearing. They are replaced by the religion of the new age that tells you:

There is only one religion, the religion of love.
There is only one country, the whole of Mother Earth.
There is only one race and chosen people, the whole of humankind.
There is only one gender, who is androgynous, whole and holy.
There is only one language, the language of the heart.
And there is only one God, the God of love,
The Great Father/Mother of all life
And I, their only born Son/Daughter.
We are one Holy Trinity, who is
Omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient.

I hope that for you the pieces of the great jigsaw puzzle of life are falling into place and for you an ever more beautiful picture of humankind’s high and holy destiny emerges. The White Eagle group of spirit guides has the following message for you. The following is the essence of what appeared in the White Eagle calendar March 2010: ‘Nothing lightens the vibrations of your whole being as much as cultivating a good sense of humour. We like to see your happy smiling faces and how you refuse to deal with anything too heavily and seriously. Knowing that in earthly life all things pass away, that everything eventually has to come to its natural end and that, in the fullness of time, God and the Angels will be making all crooked places straight, smile and let things take their course, just be.’

The Great Jigsaw Puzzle Of Life - Part Six

Turn To Me



Turn to me, O turn and be saved,
Says the Lord, for I am God.
There is no other, none beside me.
I am the spirit of the Universal Christ,
The only born Son/Daughter of the
Great Father/Mother of all life.
Their qualities are Mine and because
You are a spark of Me,
Everything that’s in Me is also in you.

I am the living God or wise one within you,
The one who comforts and heals you.
No outside forces are involved.
You will always be safe with Me.
Even when you leave earthly life
And shed your physical body like an outworn garment,
You’ve no need to be afraid of anything.
All that happens to you is that
My Angels take you back
To the spirit realm,
My world and your true home.

Do not look for Me
Somewhere ‘out there’.
You will not find me there.
I am your Highest or God Self,
The wise one within,
Your inner guidance.
Search for Me deep within your own being.
You are My child and
My highest qualities are also in you.
I am waiting for you to start bringing them forth,
So your own Christ nature can save and redeem you.
You are the only one who can do this for you.

Listen to Me, My people,
Give ear to Me, My nation,
A law went forth from Me
Long before life on the Earth began.
The knowledge that brings you the understanding
That the justice of My laws is perfect and unerring,
That’s my light for you, My beloved children of the Earth.
Equipped with this knowledge,
Lift up your eyes to the Heavens
And look at the Earth down below.
Your understanding of the meaning of
The Heavens then vanishes like smoke
And you know that your existence in physicality
Is but a passing phase
And that each one of you awaits a
High and holy destiny,
Forever safely guided and protected by the Angels and Me.

Throughout the whole of Creation
My laws have always been ruling supreme.
They ensure that everything returns to its source
And none of you can ever be truly lost
In the vastness of space and time.
During the course of your evolutionary journey
You are constantly being drawn back into the oneness with Me.
The knowledge of this is part of My light
And that for all of you,
My beloved children of the Earth,
Not just a selected few.

Yet, what good are My laws to you
For as long as you lack the understanding
Of their presence and how they work,
Affecting every lifeform in the same way,
Therefore also you and your life.
Religions that are supposed to serve Me,
But insist on looking after their own interests,
Who refuse to grasp My laws and their justice
And learn how to work with them,
Are not serving the highest good
Of My people of the Earth.
They are no good to either you or Me.
That’s why before long they will disappear.

John Foley

The Great Jigsaw Puzzle Of Life - Part Seven


Affirmations




As you move along the pathway of your present lifetime, whenever your needs change be creative and make up new affirmations. Here are a few examples to help you on the way:

• O Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life, may Your will and wishes as well as Your words and prayers be mine. In my life may Your will be done this day and always. Today is a day of completion and healing, for which I give thanks and praise. Divine healing miracles are constantly taking place in my world and therefore also in me. Your miracles and wonders shall never cease.

• My love for You floods my whole being and fills every cell and atom of my physical body and restores them to perfect health, happiness and wellbeing. With every breath I take the love and warmth of Your sacred fire flows through the painful parts into their deep underlying causes and dissolves them.

• Before going to sleep, I affirm that in dreamtime energies that are no longer good for me will be flowing through my feet into the sacred fire of Mother Earth. I ask the Angels of healing and peace to uplift and transmute them into blessing and healing energies for all life. No other energies can enter my consciousness.

• My earthly personality is the cross I have been carrying for a long time. I now hand it over to you, Great White Spirit, the wise one or living God within. You communicate with me intuitively and at all times are showing me where and how I can best serve You.

• God and the Angels are guiding and protecting me and forever will continue to do so. Nothing can hurt or harm me because I now walk in the light of the Universal Christ, Your only born Son/Daughter. My fears and anxieties are dissolving because they are no longer required.

• I only need to remember the things that are worthy of keeping. So I let go of that which no longer serves my highest good and greatest joy and the wellbeing of our whole world.

• Knowing that Your evolutionary plan is perfect and that this also applies to the millions of small plans, one for every human being, within the great plan, the fire of Your Divine enthusiasm eases me forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life. Intuitively, You and the Angels are showing me ways of fulfilling my highest potential and how through this make my contribution to the healing of our world.

• My pathway up the spiritual mountain of life now lies open and inviting before me. You and the Angels are guiding me through the tests and trials that still have to come my way until my last karmic debt has been paid and the path for a healing miracle is clear.

• My inner light of Your wisdom and love fills my whole being and flows into everything I touch with my thoughts, words and actions. This is my way of bringing my own small corner of Heaven onto the Earth, so it can be shared with the whole of my spiritual family.

• I am consciously aware that You have always been and forever will be with me and part of me. This means I have re-entered the state of Paradise and the knowledge of my oneness with You and all life fills my whole being to overflowing with a new kind of hope and faith, trust and devotion that is unshakeable. And my gratitude for the goodness of the life You and the Angels have always given us is boundless.

• You are the small still voice of my inner being. At all times I pay attention to Your directions and follow them without hesitation. I hear with Your ears and joyously perceive the Angels’ glad tidings of the new golden age of our world, when Mother Earth has become a place where people and animals co-exist peacefully. I see how hand in hand with You and the Angels, everybody harmoniously works together for the highest good and greatest joy of all manifestations of life.


O Great White Spirit,
All glory, honour and praise be to You,
For You are my inspiration,
Revelation and illumination.
I know that with the help and will
Of You and the Angels
All things are possible,
Every condition can be healed
And crooked corners made straight.

Amen
