“Your being was locked securely within the heart of Christ, to be given to you when you yourself claimed your inheritance. That treasure is literally God’s plan for you. It is the divine will come true for your being. It could not be delivered before this moment; you were not ready. But now you are, and so I give it to you. Love placed it in my immaculate hands and honored me with the gift of giving it to you, and with it, new life.” Choose Only Love, bk.7, 3:II. Message from Mother Mary.
When we awaken, we will rest easy in words like these. In the meantime, most of us will have numerous satori, or glimpses of Awakening, glimpses that do not last because, all too often, we lapse back into our fear of the world, our fear of God, our fear, period. We also lapse into judgment, particularly of our fellow men and women, and for this the antidote is to request forgiveness. While it is not God who forgives us, because He has never condemned, it is our own selves, for we are our own worst enemy.
When we have reached Book VII of Choose Only Love, we are ready for Mary’s announcement in this quotation. We have been cleansed. Our way back is announced, and we are on the brink of Awakening.
All of us will recognize when this is possible.
