Saul ~ You Are Not Your Beliefs; You are Infinitely More
By John Smallman 07/08/2012
All are One. There is no separation because all that exists has its existence within our heavenly Father. And, as many have intuited, Father is a very limiting concept with which to attempt to describe, let alone define, God – Father-Mother-God, the Creator, Love, the divine Unity, the infinite Inspiration from Which all life receives its existence in every moment – as, indeed, are these other supposedly more all-encompassing terms.
Obviously, you do need words to communicate with one another while you remain enclosed within the veil of the illusion, but, like the illusion itself, words are wholly inadequate tools with which to attempt to describe the indescribable. You do your best with them, and they can be very helpful, but do not get intoxicated with definitions of the indefinable. Differing understandings of the meaning of words used to express the idea of God have led to war far too many times for you not to understand how limiting and divisive they can be. And that divisiveness continues in your everyday lives from personal interactions through to international governmental ones.
Words are intellectual tools, and when understood in those terms they are very useful, but when emotional charges and disingenuous meanings are added to them they can have lethal consequences. Words become beliefs over which people will fight – beliefs that words themselves can never adequately encompass. They are often heartfelt, and so have enormous power over those who hold to them to the extent that they identify personally with those beliefs and will defend them with their lives – and indeed with the lives of others!
Every human is imbued with beliefs – familial, cultural, religious, political, nationalistic, to name just a few – and many of them are so deeply embedded that their owners are unaware that they are but beliefs! They are frequently considered to be obvious and rational truths, so that when people of different persuasions disagree, the results of those disagreements can lead to great suffering for many, as the power of life is used in an unloving and destructive fashion.
But of course you are not your beliefs; you are infinitely more. And awareness of that truth is seeping into humanity’s consciousness. Life — the energy which flows through all that exists — is Love. And for lack of a better analogy, it is like electricity, a power that can be used in many ways and for many purposes. However, when you use that power lovingly, every issue that you face can be dealt with satisfactorily, harmoniously, swiftly, and most beneficially for all involved. And the truth of this is becoming more apparent all across the planet, as more and more people respond lovingly to one another’s calls for assistance to solve problems of the most simple kind, or ones that, if left unresolved, could lead to catastrophic consequences.
It is these changes that are demonstrating the rise in humanity’s consciousness, in its concern for those who appear to be different in many ways because of their different ethnicity, nationality, or religious and political persuasions. It is becoming apparent to you that you all occupy the one planet and are therefore interdependent and truly have no option other than to work together – lovingly, honestly, wisely, transparently, and with the intention that all benefit – if you are to avoid destroying the environment that makes life on earth possible for you.
Love is infiltrating each of you, because you are letting down the protective barriers behind which you have hidden your apparent vulnerabilities for so long, and you are discovering that in these vulnerabilities lie your true strengths. By sharing them you encourage others to share theirs, and then you find that nearly all your fears are groundless because, by disclosing your vulnerabilities, you discover that the love you have been keeping hidden, because you thought it was weakness, flows smoothly, easily, and powerfully through all those with whom you share. Of course there remain many who have yet to find the courage to disclose themselves to themselves and to others, but more and more of you are doing this all the time.
Love is infinitely powerful. It suffuses you all, and the secret to finding it within you is to share it indiscriminately, as so many of you are now doing. As a well-known song tells you “Love changes everything,” and that is indeed a divine truth. Open your hearts; it is easy. And accept the flood of divine Love that enfolds you, nudging you constantly towards wakefulness.
With so very much love, Saul.
