Think of what you are.
You are gentleness itself. You are mercy itself. You are love itself. You are strength itself. You are power itself. True power melts away all that isn’t, revealing what is and always has been. You are that. If you are that, all others are that, eternally, because there is only one of us.
Now think of the extension of what you are. You breathe in. You touch what you are. You breathe out. You extend that, quite simply, without struggle. Think of a life without struggle. There is what you are, and there is the extension of that, quite simply.
Meet us in what you are, in what we are, in what all others are and always have been. And from there, we extend, together. This is the starting point of all action. When you’ve lost touch with your starting point you feel it, and feeling is always a service. When you feel that feeling of something being off, remember that it is never, ever because of something in the world. That something in the world as a suggested focus for your pain is always ego’s lure. See ego’s lure, and move on. Know that what you are feeling either reflects the peace of the starting place of Home, or it is alerting you that you have left it, calling you back. That is all.
We use a lot of words to say something very simple, and we will say it in many forms and from many angles seemingly related to things of your world. It is our way of holding your hand in love and gratitude, steadily, always there for you and with you, as you walk back Home. As you walk back Home, all others are walking with you. We are there for all of them, too. The ways we hold their hands may seem very different to you, but just know that we are there for them, too. That is why you can release all of your worry about them.
You do the greatest service for others when you allow yourself to be guided, when you drop all worry about others, when you are fully willing to think, speak and act from the starting place of Home. Take one breath and feel the resonance of Home. That is the resonance you share with all others when you keep your focus there.
As you allow all thought, all speech, and all action to come from your true Home, you light up a beacon to that Home that others see. What is most striking when they see this beacon is what isn’t there. There is no manipulation. There is no hiding. There is no attempt to please. There is no nervousness. There is no striving.
That beacon is a great relief for others to see, for underneath any separate thing they think they want, Home is what they truly want. The truth of this can be felt immediately. Happiness invites happiness, and useless goals dry up in the presence of the joy everyone is. This is your only job–walk steadily Home, take all the assistance that is there for you along the way, and shine as a beacon that brings relief and encouragement to others.
It is our joy to share this encouragement with you, along with our thanks, Rest easy in the certain knowledge of what you are, of what all others are, too. Step forth in inspiration from the firm foundation of shared identity in all that you do today, and know that we are always with you.
