Using Loving Words from Jesus by D. V., Read by Debra Yvonne Simmons
*It just occurred to me that I could use my own books to make a deck from. What a fun idea! Stay tuned for that!
*With this being Christmas week it seemed fitting to use the words of Jesus to guide us.
My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. John 6:32
Basically Jesus is saying that you will receive that which will sustain you within yourself. Jesus taught that the Kingdom of Heaven is within us, and he is asking us to remember where to go for real nourishment.
Not just nourishment for the body either. Nourishment for the courage and hope that makes living satisfying.
“I love you, but you are bad.” That is what I heard from my stepmother and family members I met over the years. I still hear it, but that comes from inside them, not me.
Thankfully, I had gotten a witness of Jesus’ and God’s love for me as a little child. I just chose to love others as well. When I asked them to do things differently it was because I felt that would make them happier or “that this was what God wanted”. I have learned to let go of a lot of false attitudes about that! Thank goodness!
I have come to understand that this witness does not come naturally. It must be chosen. We each make these choices inside ourselves. And if we chose something that we are not happy with we can choose a different way.
Only by going inside can we understand what is best for us. We cannot judge for another and God does not judge us either. We are His Children, and He wants us to have joy.
Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you. John 14:27
KJV: Peace I leave with you,my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
God and Jesus give us the witness and remembrance of the peace that we have through knowing that we are a part of them. We can share that with each other as we walk in the Atonement and recognition of our unity as Jesus did (and does).
You are not going to be able to please others and you have no idea what language they speak or what their experiences are, so you really have to find the peace within yourself and accept it if it does not include others. There is nothing wrong with that, because we are not bodies, we are divine entities that cannot be separated. No matter how things appear in the world.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Matthew 5:9
I am so grateful this card came up next, because that is a very good question. How does one be a peacemaker? I suspect it is by being peaceful within one’s self. And taking care of your mental well-being as only you know how to.
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
As you live your life, true to you, you will be a light to give other’s courage to do the same. The good works are your inner joy at being true to yourself. That may well include helping others, or it may not, that is up to you.
Look within for guidance and confidence. Accept the peace of knowing that you are divine. Share that joy by being true to who you are, as did Jesus. Share your gifts as you are inspired by the Holy Spirit within you.
Now, this is not an excuse to be a hermit and yet what is wrong with being alone and in your peace?
I no longer cling to the statement “multiply and replenish the earth” as if that was the only responsibility we have here. If you are called or desiring that fine, but there is nothing wrong with being alone and being content.
I use to believe in the idea that physical life had to continue. I do not accept that any longer. I believe physical life was created by the Son to find ways to punish Himself and God made sure the Atonement was there at the beginning. Jesus partook of it. That does not in any way justify shortening it. We have a purpose and not knowing it when we get here is part of it.
And I believe that in his confusion, Jesus laid out the Plan that included right and wrong as the first creation of Christ, the Son of
God. I believe that Jesus needs to be forgiven by each of us, because he is the one that laid out this Plan. Only because of timing which is an unreality created for humanity to remember that they are One as the Son of God.
Every knee will bow not because he is greater, higher, or more anything than us. But because he was the first and his idea laid the foundation and groundwork of how the Son of God would punish Himself. Law of Attraction was in play and as the first thought of Christ was Jesus, his conscious assessment of the situation is what created our situation here.
He had the Atonement automatically because he had not truly separated from Christ, whereas all who came after felt the separation and needed to be led to the Atonement.
Our bow to Jesus will be in acknowledgment of our union in Christ and the Father, and in acknowledgment of our forgiveness or release of the Plan of Right and Wrong that took us through the struggles of the world. That is a bit of heaven we can stand in right now as we accept the Atonement and the truthfulness of who we are.
While we wait until all receive this witness, we share our gifts and weaknesses for the enlightenment of humanity as was the Plan.
Christ is here. He is you and He is me. My prayer is that we will see Him there and be kinder to ourselves and to one another.
Till next time, God bless, Namaste~
