You are, as you well know deep within yourselves, highly evolved beings of Light, just as God created you, and nothing can ever change that because what God creates is eternal and perfect. Your awakening will bring this knowledge experientially into your conscious awareness, and you will never again lose it — for you will have discarded everything that was blocking that knowledge.
As divine beings your place is with God; there is nowhere else. The places that you seem to have been experiencing for so long, and with such suffering and confusion, are unreal, regardless of the fact that to you they frequently appear to be the only reality that there is. This is due to your ongoing choice to be unaware of anything that cannot be perceived by your bodily senses. Now your science is belatedly admitting that just because you remain unaware of something does not mean that it does not exist. This admission is allowing many new areas of research to be undertaken that require you to expand your consciousness and follow your intuition which then becomes an ever more powerful tool the more you use it.
Many of you have experienced altered states of consciousness that were more real to you than your “normal” less-than-fully conscious state, but you have been persuaded they were unreal, imaginary, would lead to psychosis, and have therefore stopped seeking to reenter them. And of course the war on drugs has further frightened people into believing that altered states are damaging and psychotic. Yes, some have indeed done severe damage to themselves by the use of various intoxicating substances – mainly in desperate attempts to relieve the suffering and pain of their “normal” state.
But what you accept as your “normal” state of consciousness is far from normal. It is the state in which you live in fear and anxiety, constantly feeling the need to take all kinds of precautions to ensure your safety. It encourages distrust, disagreement, and conflict, thus ensuring that what you fear comes to pass. However, sensible and intelligent research into altered states of consciousness is discovering that those altered states can provide healing for many of the ailments that plague humanity. The more your state of consciousness expands the more your knowledge grows, and the more your fear subsides — because ignorance is the greatest source of fear on Planet Earth.
God’s plan is for you to become fully conscious. In that state nothing is hidden from you and so there is nothing to fear. And that is what it means to awaken. When your physical body is sleeping, it is unaware, unknowing, it knows nothing, and sometimes it becomes drawn into the most horrific nightmares that are convincingly real and which often lead to the body awaking in terror. It can take some seconds for the sleeper to realize that he has awakened and is in fact quite safe. But the memory often lingers on, and he is reluctant to go back to sleep. Fear strikes at the heart of ignorance, and knowledge is the only remedy.
When you awaken you will have infinite knowledge, bringing you infinite peace and infinite joy because you will then be aware of the infinite possibilities available to you that will encourage you to exercise your unique individual creative talents for your constant enjoyment. And because all are one, each of you will delight in and fully enjoy the creations of everyone else. Fabulous and endless creative opportunities await you all in the harmonious environment into which you are about to awaken.
With so very much love, Saul.
