The Utter Joy of Returning to Your Natural Divine State
August 19, 2012 by John Smallman
Your awakening is a done deal. Nothing can prevent it from occurring exactly as divinely intended. Many of you are anxious, wondering when you will see some positive indications in the physical environment of the inevitable arrival of this momentous event. You are all accustomed to drama – earthquakes, floods, revolutions, wars, accidents – and may well be expecting your awakening to be equally dramatic, possibly preceded by shocking or amazing revelations trumpeted by the mainstream media.
This is not the divine way! God is Love, Peace, Compassion, Joy, Bliss, and any other loving Reality that you sense or feel – and every one of Those is experienced within yourselves. The external world is illusory; Reality is within. It is within yourselves that you will experience your awakening, and when you do, it will be amazing! Looking outside is a distraction because it is an imaginary environment made up by your collective human consciousness. When you awaken, it will be gone!
To awaken is to know yourselves as one – with each other and with God. In your present dream state, filled, it seems, with fascinating and enticing distractions and billions of individual beings, it is impossible for you to conceive of the wonder that awaits you on awakening. You can, at present, only conceive of situations and events that you experience through your bodily senses, and the extensions to them that your science and technology have provided.
When you awaken, none of those means of thinking, seeing, hearing, feeling, tasting, or smelling will be necessary because you will know and experience All That Is, God, Creation, Reality directly – no intermediation of any kind is required.
It is very difficult for you to get a handle on this because you are so fully acclimatized and accustomed to dealing with others, individuals or groups – separate entities in bodies. In Reality there is no separation: what one knows, all know. And yet there is identity, in so far as all are aspects of one loving God, creating and communing together.
It is impossible to describe to you the utter joy of returning to your natural divine state. It has to be directly experienced. Some of you have had inklings of what this means when you have read about the ecstatic experiences of mystics throughout the ages who tried to express in words what it is like, and a few of you have had your own brief encounters with the brilliant Light of God’s Love for you in altered states of consciousness or during near-death experiences. But those experiences are just teasers, nudges, calls to lead you on towards your permanent awakening.
Those of you who have had those experiences were overwhelmed by Love, by ecstasy, by the sense of the Presence of God, and although you knew in that moment that you are never judged but infinitely loved, you also knew that that was not the moment for you to return Home permanently, that you still had work to do, just by remaining among your sisters and brothers who are struggling to find their way out of the illusion.
Nevertheless, your experience removed all fear of death; in fact, it removed all fear — and you were filled with a permanent and constant love for all humanity. That love shines out from you continuously, affecting everyone with whom you interact in any way at all, and your duty, your task, as you are well aware, is to continue sharing that love indiscriminately at all times.
Within the illusion vast changes are happening all across the world as the field of divine Love enveloping you seeps into every heart that is the least bit willing to allow It in. Never before in human history has there been such an outpouring of love and compassion by humans for humans. Previously, the amount of love truly shared was small, but over time the indestructible seeds it planted have grown, and they are now flourishing vibrantly as they engage with God’s divine Love field embracing the planet.
These changes remain almost totally unreported by the mainstream media, and yet Love is flowing boisterously, ebulliently, and irrepressibly across the world – everyone will be swept up in It. And as It becomes the prime energy and all attempts to maintain unloving attitudes and behaviors collapse, you will all experience the most marvelous inner changes that It encourages and promotes.
You are not frightened individuals, left alone and abandoned in a terrifying and threatening environment by a fierce and judgmental god; you are divine beings of immense power, created in Love by your Father, for both His eternal joy and yours – and only temporarily lost in an imaginary world of your own construction. That is His Will, and It will not be constrained in any way. Continue to share the Love in which you are enveloped, and know that you can never be separated from God — with Whom you are eternally one.
Your loving brother Jesus.
