Spring is in the air, and so is change of a most magnificent kind
Through John Smallman
The Oneness that is God has all of creation enfolded within It; It is the infinite field of divine Love where all Wisdom, all Knowledge, all Consciousness has its eternal existence. It is a state of utter joy, peace, and contentment, where no one is, or can ever be in any way, bereft. It is Reality, where all are free to create abundantly with the skills and abilities that God has bestowed upon them, and delight in the results.
It is into this sublime state that humanity is to awaken. Your present state of sleep, constantly interrupted by dreams and nightmares that you experience as real and substantive, no longer serves you, and so you have chosen to wake up into the refreshing, stimulating, and exhilarating state of wonder from which you chose to briefly hide yourselves but a moment ago. It seems to you that you have been experiencing this imaginary reality for a very long time – and in “time” you have – but it has been only momentary, as you will discover when you wake up. And then your joy and amazement will be boundless and unceasing. Reality is always amazing because it places you in the Presence of the infinite, all-loving Source, which created you solely to experience eternal joy, amazement, and wonder — and so you will.

It is just not possible to envision what is coming your way
December 9, 2012 by John Smallman
As the moment for your awakening approaches, the vast majority of humanity is in the process of releasing their last remaining ties to the illusion. Only a very small number of souls have elected not to awaken, and some of those are thinking seriously about changing their minds. You can always change your minds!
There is absolutely no need for any of you to worry or concern yourselves about loved ones who seem to you to be unaware of the great changes that are about to occur. There is no one who is on a path to awakening who, at some deep level of their being, is unaware that a new age is soon to dawn. And everyone incarnate on Earth at this time intends to be on their path to awakening.
It is a remarkable time to be within and experiencing the illusory environment that you built so many eons ago. Having seen it materialize many are now here to watch as it dematerializes, and all who choose to awaken will find themselves Home at last. You have a very apt saying “home is where the heart is,” and of course while you have spent eons, to put it mildly, blundering about in the illusion, your spiritual hearts, your divine essences have remained safe and abundantly well in the heavenly realms, assisting the sleeping aspects of yourselves which chose to enter the illusion to wake up. And with all that loving assistance added to your own original intent, then your awakening becomes inevitable.

Focus on listening and attending to others lovingly
October 5, 2012 by John Smallman
The great event – awakening – continues its approach, and as it does so more and more of humanity is feeling the need to change attitudes and behaviors so that longterm peace may prevail all over the planet. The energy from the divine Love field is penetrating areas of human thought and activity that would seem inconceivable to the majority of you, and yet the darkest and most carefully hidden domains, from which Love has been locked out for eons, are being gently and most effectively permeated. This is not readily observed by the population at large; nevertheless, it is most definitely happening, and as a result those who would maintain and strengthen the old dark ways are falling into confusion and disarray.
As you are constantly reminded: Love changes everything! Love — the power and energy of creation — is indefatigable and, ultimately, irresistible. You are eternally enveloped in Its warm embrace, and you all will succumb to Its captivating and enchanting appeal, leaving the illusion far behind you, because it is where you belong and where you truly want to be. Every thought, every ambition, every hope, and every desire that occurs to you is to bring to your attention your ceaseless intent to awaken, to experience Reality, oneness with God your divine Father. You seek nothing else.

In truth, there is nothing to judge
September 30, 2012 by John Smallman
The river of time — that aspect of the illusion of which many of you are most conscious — is flowing swiftly and smoothly, carrying you insistently and unfalteringly along with it towards your divine destination. Regardless of any doubts or uncertainties that you may harbor your arrival is assured, divinely assured. Focus on the absolute certainty of that assurance when doubts or anxieties arise within you, knowing, as you most definitely do, that your Father’s Love for you is drawing you irresistibly homeward.
You have a saying, “Home is where the heart is,” and the heart of your true Self is eternally at Home with your heavenly Father. Nevertheless, that does not appear to be the case as you contend with the problems and anxieties with which the illusion continuously presents you, while you strive determinedly to find your way out of it and back to that glorious state.
As ever-greater numbers of you decide that you have had enough of this insane suffering and resolve to bring it to an end, your striving becomes more diligent and effective. And because it is your spiritual intention and because you are divinely assisted, there is nothing that can prevent your awakening from occurring just as divinely intended.

The remaining conflicts now in progress are the last to arise on the planet
September 26, 2012 by John Smallman
Love is the antidote to the contagion of pain and suffering in which so many are engaged. For eons you have tried to bring peace forcefully into being – by authoritarian legislation backed by penalties and punishments, by criminal violence against one another, by conflict between groups, and by wars between nations – and you know from your history and from personal experience that it simply does not work. The remaining conflicts that are now in progress, even though they may appear insoluble, are the last to arise on the planet, and they will cease because the people who are engaged in them have had enough; and even as they fight they fully understand that violence leads only to further violence and not to solutions.
As Light-bearers, your task is to embrace the peace within yourselves by releasing all feelings of righteousness that are causing conflict within you. The inflexibility of righteousness is a dead- end street. You have been preparing to do this all your lives as reason, intelligence, and comprehension have shown you the inadequacy of the traditional ways of attempting to solve problems and achieve agreement. It takes courage to change . . . and determination . . . and intense focus. You have those talents, those strengths, and you are being fully supported in your intention to use them by the divine energy field that has enveloped you in order to ensure your success.

Oneness is non-negotiable
September 21, 2012 by John Smallman
The essential changes that humanity needs to make in attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors in order to restore the normal, necessary, loving, and peaceful conditions in which you can relate to one another on every level are occurring very rapidly now. Humanity’s region of the divine energy field — your field of consciousness — continues to strengthen and intensify as more and more of you become aware of how each one of you can and does effect it, and then very positively makes the intent to do so. A wonderful Light is now bathing your beautiful planet and is clearly visible to all who wish to see it. You are making astounding progress on your path to awakening, and even those who are the least aware of the spiritual dimension that is your identity will be unable to remain unaware for very much longer. Then they too will add to the ever-growing brilliance of the Light that envelops you all.
It gives enormous joy and satisfaction to us in the spiritual realms as we observe the exponentially expanding field of love that you are creating around you to meld with God’s. We have been with you, helping and encouraging you for eons, and now the results of our joint efforts are becoming clear. So much progress has been achieved in just the last few decades! God’s Will is demonstrably shown being perfectly accomplished.

There is an invigorating, sparkling crackle in the air
September 19, 2012 by John Smallman
Humanity’s awakening is moving ahead very auspiciously as the divine energies you are availing of to help you on your way continue to strengthen and intensify with each passing day. If you could really comprehend what you are achieving as you focus on being loving at all times, and by sharing your love indiscriminately with all with whom you interact, you would be absolutely flabbergasted.
You are on Earth at this point in humanity’s spiritual evolution for precisely this purpose, and despite the difficulties with which such a life has presented you, you are maintaining your purpose and delivering what you promised – an almost constant demonstration of loving wisdom in action – and, as a direct result, inspiring all those with whom you interact to do likewise. You deserve and will receive the highest accolades and commendations for the devotion and determination you are bringing to this essential task, thus ensuring that it will be brought to an utterly successful conclusion.
It does seem at present that your world is in a state of chaos as you hear of wars, threats of war, riots, starvation, earthquakes, floods, droughts, forest fires etc., but in fact what is happening is a massive clearing-out of old and stagnant energies that have set you against each other for eons. Your politics, economics, international relations, social services, educational systems, and general behaviors, attitudes, and expectations have become bogged down and basically unworkable, and a new model is required.
Do you realize how potentially huge and troublesome this is for the Catholic Church? - AK

NYT: Historian says papyrus refers to Jesus' wife
Karen L. King / Harvard
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - A historian of early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School has identified a scrap of papyrus that she says was written in Coptic in the fourth century and contains a phrase never seen in any piece of scripture: "Jesus said to them, 'My wife …'"
The faded papyrus fragment is smaller than a business card, with eight lines on one side, in black ink legible under a magnifying glass. Just below the line about Jesus having a wife, the papyrus includes a second provocative clause that purportedly says, “she will be able to be my disciple.”
The finding is being made public in Rome on Tuesday at an international meeting of Coptic scholars by the historian Karen L. King, who has published several books about new Gospel discoveries and is the first woman to hold the nation’s oldest endowed chair, the Hollis professor of divinity.
The provenance of the papyrus fragment is a mystery, and its owner has asked to remain anonymous. Until Tuesday, King had shown the fragment to only a small circle of experts in papyrology and Coptic linguistics, who concluded that it is most likely not a forgery. But she and her collaborators say they are eager for more scholars to weigh in and perhaps upend their conclusions.
Even with many questions unsettled, the discovery could reignite the debate over whether Jesus was married, whether Mary Magdalene was his wife and whether he had a female disciple. These debates date to the early centuries of Christianity, scholars say. But they are relevant today, when global Christianity is roiling over the place of women in ministry and the boundaries of marriage.
The discussion is particularly animated in the Roman Catholic Church, where despite calls for change, the Vatican has reiterated the teaching that the priesthood cannot be opened to women and married men because of the model set by Jesus.

When you awaken, the activities in which you can take part will be limitless
September 16, 2012 by John Smallman
Enthusiasm and excitement are powerful motivators, so as you look forward to awakening, elicit those feelings to strengthen and empower your intent to do so. You are powerful beings, and you are on Earth to engage with your power and use it to bring in a completely new manner of communicating, a new way of relating to one another, a new mode of living that is always accepting and honoring of others, and respectful of the differing ideas that you present to one another for discussion.
It is through ideas that new creative ventures can be envisioned and embarked upon. When you awaken, the prospects available, the directions in which you can move, the activities in which you can take part will be limitless. Anything you can think of you will be able to bring forth and develop – a poem, a symphony, a universe – and the joy of doing so will cause you unalloyed satisfaction. Your Father’s Will for you is eternal joy, satisfaction, and happiness, and His Will is always accomplished, so your future, at one with Him, will be glorious, brilliant, and utterly fulfilling.
For eons, deep within yourselves, beneath the level of consciousness on which you normally operate as humans, you have been longing to return to your divine state. Every thought, every word, every activity that has engaged your attention has been directed towards accomplishing that, even though you were mostly unaware of this hidden internal drive whose only purpose was to restore you to the pristine state in which you were created. A state which in truth you have never left.

You can see signs everywhere that the old order is crumbling
September 12, 2012 by John Smallman
You are on the verge of an enormous breakthrough into your fully-conscious state that will lead you to the most amazing revelations about life and existence. The fact that you were divinely created from the One Source assures and guarantees for you the gift, the honor, the right, and the privilege of eternal existence which is the state of completion, fulfillment, and perfection from which nothing is missing. You want for nothing because anything you could ever conceive of wanting is instantly within your domain and attends your pleasure.
Full consciousness is the state in which you were created and in which you have your eternal existence. It just seems to you that you are limited because you are presently, by your own choice, experiencing severely limited consciousness due to the inadequacies of the vehicle you have chosen to inhabit – a human body – and the resultant shortage of environments in which it is capable of operating. When you originally built the illusion you had the ability to range widely within it, but over time you slowly reduced the area in which you could travel freely, culminating in your choice to be embodied and thus exceedingly restricted.
Having so restricted yourselves anger and frustration developed, and having forgotten that your situation was one of your own choosing, you sought reasons outside yourselves to which you could attach culpability for this sorry state of affairs. In so doing you further restricted your awareness and in intense irritation began to fight with one another. But because you were all so weak and ineffectual it was readily apparent to you, even with your limited intellectual abilities, that no one sharing the environment with you had anything like the power or influence necessary to cause the chaotic perturbations that the weather, earth movements, and seasonal climatic variations inflicted on you.

You intensely miss the Presence of your Father
September 9, 2012 by John Smallman
Here in the spiritual realms we continue to watch over you with loving gratitude as you focus determinedly on the task that you have so courageously undertaken, which is to assist humanity to awaken. Many of you are feeling weighed down with fatigue as the stress of your task bears heavily down upon you. We are constantly focusing our energy on you to help you to bring yours ever more closely into alignment with the divine Will. You are doing a sterling job, and our love surrounds you as you inspire so many of whom you are utterly unaware. The love that you express and demonstrate is far more effective than you can possibly imagine, so do not forget to honor and congratulate yourselves on the potency of your endeavors, as we are doing.
The fear and anger that have been such deeply rooted characteristics of your lives for so long are being transformed, as you choose to offer love instead of defense or attack whenever you feel threatened. This is a major evolutionary step that more and more of you are taking as you see others taking it, and then you too find the courage to step along with them. Spiritual evolution is the unshakable and indestructible foundation of the path that you are all on, and it is leading you indefatigably Home.

The unloving are, in truth, crying out for Love. Their faith in the divine creative Source of all existence is very weak; they feel alone, lost, threatened and unsafe. As a result they attempt to build strong defenses with which to devastate those they fear. But they are afraid that those they fear will become ever stronger and more threatening, and develop the power to destroy them. So they try to build even stronger defenses.
It truly is a Catch 22 situation. Don’t buy into it, because it distracts you from your spiritual task of bearing your Light on high for all to see so they can be re-assured all is divinely taken care of. God’s Light shines on all indiscriminately, but sadly many turn away from it in fear, believing themselves unworthy of the Love it offers.
They choose to demand scientific proof of the existence of God, of a supreme Intelligence, to justify their unbelief, knowing that that of course is and will remain unavailable because science is blind to anything other than what it decides can exist. Your history shows you this very clearly time and time again when science is proved wrong. Unfortunately, science remains obdurate. Due to fear of the unknown, it wants to explain things through its own premises, based on historic experiences that lead to unwarranted assumptions, which it then refuses to question until forced to do so by unexpected events and new discoveries.
Being unable to prove the existence of God allows them to indulge their fears that the world is a hostile and threatening environment, and to justify behaving as though the life they are experiencing is best used solely for their own personal advancement — “he who dies with the most toys wins!” And so personal agendas drive their lives, causing divisive situations to erupt into them with monotonous regularity.

Love is the key to awakening
September 5, 2012 by John Smallman
Here in the spiritual realms, where many of you will soon join us, we are watching with pleasure and gratification as you make your way determinedly forwards along the rugged path you have so valiantly hewn that is leading you to Heaven. It has been a long and arduous journey, with many excursionary digressions along the way, and now you have reached its final stages.
You have indeed been stalwart of purpose as, despite the many alluring distractions that have from time to time drawn you away from your path, you have always staunchly and courageously returned to it. Each time you have steadfastly reset your course after temporarily falling by the wayside, and your undying sense of purpose has provided much needed encouragement to the many waverers whom you have encountered, and who seemed to have lost their way.
No one can really lose their way because everyone always has divinely inspired guidance available; they have only to ask for it and they will find it. It is not elusive; however, many are poor listeners to that inner voice which offers and provides all the guidance needed, the voice for God, whose one purpose is to lead them out of the illusion and into the Light. At that moment all will become clear — as eternal joy replaces the fear, befuddlement, and confusion that are the illusion’s hallmarks.

You are heading for experiences of amazing wonder and beguilement
September 2, 2012 by John Smallman
Love, God, the Source of all, is infinitely powerful, comforting, uplifting, accepting, healing, and inspiring. You have been told this by mystics from various religions and cultures who have experienced and been overwhelmed by the presence of God. And your awakening will re-introduce you to this blissful state. It is your divine destiny and cannot be avoided, but only — if you so choose — be delayed.
The illusion has seduced you most efficaciously, as was your intent when you constructed it. However, its time is past. It is being gently dissolved so that you will awaken gently into eternal joy, whereupon exquisite excitement will fully engage you. What you are to experience can neither be imagined nor satisfactorily described, as the mystics themselves have told you.
Nevertheless, when you leave it behind, you will have no regrets of any kind; in fact, awareness of what you experienced within it will fade rapidly and miraculously from your minds. You will have no interest whatever in memories of it, because your new-found joy will engage your whole attention, and in Reality your “whole attention” is far beyond anything you can presently imagine, which is limited to things or ideas that presently interests, intrigues, fascinates, or captures it.

You are all Love Incarnate
August 31, 2012 by John Smallman
Humanity’s awakening is the most significant and momentous event in your history. It has been meticulously planned and is being perfectly executed. Within the illusion it is very difficult for you to get a real sense of your approaching moment of awakening, although many of you are getting intuitive intimations that it is coming, and that it will be soon (that word again!). Trust those feelings, focus on them, and ask for help from the spiritual realms for the strength to offer love — and only love — in every situation. You are all potential divine channels or conduits, so invite God to pour His Love through you into the world and into the hearts of all those who choose to open to Him. It is the most powerful and effective thing that you can do to assist in humanity’s awakening, and it is one of the reasons for your being on Earth now.
You are all in the process of awakening. It is a mass process in which you can help one another by honoring and respecting yourselves at all times. Watching others, and judging their behavior – whether you judge them as good, not so good, could do better, or downright sinful – is not your responsibility; it is an unnecessary distraction. In Reality you are all one, so judging another is judging yourself. As I have told you, God does not judge, He Loves – everyone, infinitely, unconditionally, indiscriminately – and He wants you to do likewise. To do so is your nature because you are divine beings. When a judgmental thought pops into your mind, don’t act on it and don’t judge it! Let it pass, and focus your attention on the flame of Love burning permanently within you.

There is no going back
August 29, 2012 by John Smallman
Excitement is rising among you — the Light-bearers and Light-workers — as you feel the energies of the divine Love field intensifying. You are all doing a marvelous job of demonstrating God’s Love for humanity by living what you know is the truth, by exemplifying peace and non-engagement, and by refusing to respond with unloving words or actions when it seems that you are being attacked. You are noticing that this approach works very well indeed, even though initially you had grave doubts about its likely effectiveness. Love is the answer to every problem, issue, or situation with which you are faced, and that truth is being most positively brought home to you each time you respond lovingly.

To change the nightmare into a pleasant and harmonious dream
August 26, 2012 by John Smallman
When you awaken, as you inevitably will, all that has ever puzzled you will be revealed — not who committed crimes, cheated on others, betrayed others, or what will replace oil or money, because when you awaken those sorts of puzzlements will no longer hold any interest for you: they will be irrelevant. And you will recognize once again your true nature as beings of immense beauty, power, and love — in need of nothing.
Your true nature has never changed, has never been in doubt. You have just been so distracted by the glamor of the illusion that you have forgotten who you are. In that forgetfulness you sank into fear — like the little child that wakes from a nightmare, convinced there are monsters under his bed waiting to tear him limb from limb – and as a consequence you conducted your life as though fear were real, attempting continuously to protect yourself from all the ills and catastrophes you believe could and might befall you at any moment.

God loves everything He creates
August 22, 2012 by John Smallman
We in the spiritual realms are observing with joy your increasingly powerful intent to awaken. You yourselves have to make and hold that intent, and whereas in times past you were unable or unwilling to do so and allowed yourselves to be distracted from that vitally important task, now that intent is being held powerfully and constantly by sufficient numbers of you to bring you forward to the moment for your awakening. And your ongoing communications with others holding this same intent are further strengthening your collective will and bringing it more and more into alignment with God’s.
If it is your intent to awaken, then you most certainly will. As you go about your daily lives focus on that knowledge – you do have it and know it! – because by doing so you express, extend, and share with everyone the loving encouragement that will make it happen. Your individual energy fields glow with the light of your love for all of humanity and that softens and dissolves any unloving energies with which you come in contact, anywhere and anytime.
Sunday, August 19, 2012
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.
