Stephanie: “I recently lost my job and have not been successful at finding employment despite my education and experience. Because of this my fiance began to put me down and my parents belittled me. All I had was my hope and positive spirit but I felt that drifting away so I asked God to remove anything from my life that did not mean me good. I left my fiance, my parents turned their backs on me, and I am staying with a friend as I have no place to live on my own. I just need to be reassured if my breakthrough is coming soon and will I receive the abundance and prosperity promised to me?”
The Voice for Love: “Dearly beloved one, we want you to know that you are loved. Take time now to pause, close your eyes, and feel the deep goodness at your core. Spend time each day with this experience of your reality, at least for 10 minutes. Feel it, speak with it, allow it to be the center of your focus while you are with it. It is not changed by any condition experienced as coming from outside.
“Experiences of rejection, which you lay upon the shoulders of others, does not change your core reality. Others cannot and do not hurt it. What you experience, with panic, is the seeming rejection of the character you built to present to the world as who you are. Indeed, you believe that character to be who you really are, and you have ignored the experience of the peace, love, and security provided by your Real Self, the one who is the true you.
“You can and will move forward with your life in the world, but you cannot experience such movement with acceptance and fulfillment, without rejection, until you have practiced and integrated the awareness of your true loving self. That self wants to extend itself into the world, with peace, creativity, and love. It wants to experience the acceptance of all it offers out of its very nature, and the acceptance from others in the world. Yet such experience of acceptance is dependent upon your acceptance of it first, along with the awareness that you do not know and cannot judge the reasons for any experience of rejection from others.
“You are not alone in your core reality, or in your failure to actualize it within the world. Everyone, including all those others whom you judge as rejecting you, are also caught in the same dilemma of not knowing their true reality, in the deepest sense (which differs significantly from intellectual knowing).
“Indeed, we cannot target any particular outcome for you, as outcomes are experienced by you according to your own choices. It is the experiential choice that determines how you perceive an outcome. Losing one’s job, lover, parental support, support from one’s children, etc., are all drastic consequences of inconsistency between whom one really is and the character they act out in the world. Such consequences are neither permanent nor evil, but are challenging signposts. They present lessons which require one to go deeper into one’s true meaning and purpose in life.
“Your experiences offer valuable bits of education. If you follow through by helping yourself to really experience your core reality, by sensing that reality, by befriending that reality and consulting it, it will guide you in how to change your life experiences from rejection to acceptance at a deeper level. Then, and only then, will you really know love for what it is, in truth. That is, to experience the love that you are, along with God and all other participants in the Sonship of God.
“We hold your hand in this process. Allow yourself to feel us in your mind and heart. Take time out to get to know your inner goodness and love. That is where you will find us also.”
