Throughout this message, I have shared with you a great deal about Who I Am, who you are, and our relationship. I have answered a number of questions that have puzzled many of you for many years. Undoubtedly, some of the concepts presented here are unlike anything you’ve ever heard before, and consequently, you may need time to digest them.

So let’s pause for now. Take a break from this particular volume of “A Message From God.” This is not a farewell or a goodbye, quite simply because I’m not going anywhere, and neither are you.

I always am with you, living inside you. You never need to worry about that. And anytime you want to be aware of My presence, remember: Breathe, be still and know that I AM GOD.

Throughout this message, I have stressed the importance of looking for Me inside your own heart, and listening to My voice there. If you seek to develop your relationship with Me further, that is how you should approach it. If it is My guidance you want, I shall give it to you. You are free to accept or reject it, but to deny Me is to deny yourself. Why would you do that?

Like anything else in your world, what you focus your attention on grows. If you would like our relationship to grow, put some time and energy into it. Read about Me, including holy texts. And include holy texts beyond your traditional religion—in doing so, you not are forsaking your old beliefs; you are merely expanding them.

Listen to music, explore the arts, and be of service to your fellow humans. In other words, participate in activities that touch your heart, and do so with an open heart. The more you open your heart to Me and to the world, the closer you and I will become.

Feel free to read this message over again. Doing this will reinforce the lessons presented here, as well as clear up other concepts that may have confused you in earlier readings. Repeated exposure to this message will help it take root in your mind. As this happens, your choices will naturally begin to change and your life will transform in amazing ways.

This is not the last time I will reach out to you in this format. There will be additional messages that will deal with some of the other everyday questions and concerns that many of you have for Me. In the meantime, I want to leave you with a few parting thoughts and words of encouragement.

First of all, I love you. Unconditionally, deeply and eternally. Do not ever wonder about this. Remember, as long as you are breathing, I am in your heart. And whether you are breathing or not, you are in My heart.

Secondly, I forgive you. You have done and said things you believed came between us. As far as I’m concerned, nothing can come between us, for we are one.

I am proud of you. You have had plenty of challenges come your way. You may not have always had the outcome you wanted. You may not have always behaved in a way that you were proud of. But at every turn, you have done the best you could, given what you knew and what you had to work with. And to that I say, well done.

And as we bring this conversation to a temporary close, I would like to offer you My Blessing.

You are about to live an extraordinary life!

You are about to do exciting things! You are about to live a life so amazing that you will know than it could come from no other source but God, Jehovah, Yahweh, Allah, or whatever you choose to call The Source from which we all come and to which we will inevitably return.

You have wondered who you really are and what you are here on Earth for. You have pondered the meaning of life and your place in it. You have been craving a relationship with The Source, a sense of knowing that you belong to something that is bigger than you are.

All of these things are within your grasp. All of these things are available to you NOW. All you have to do is accept this. This will be challenging for many of you, but the reward is great, and far beyond anything you could imagine.

What you are, essentially, is a divine and holy creation of God. I made you perfect, whole and complete. As far as I am concerned, there is nothing wrong with you, and there never was!

You don’t have to work to earn My love. I AM LOVE. And I will love and forgive you, no matter what you do, and no matter what other people might say.

I created you in My image and likeness. Think of it this way: When I look in a mirror, I see YOU. The question to ask yourself every moment is: Can you look into the mirror and see God?

Can you?

Can you look at each other and see God?

Can you?

Can you look at an apple tree, a bumblebee or a puppy and see God?

Can you?

When you train your mind to recognize Me everywhere you go, to think of Me in all you do, you will recognize the Essential Truth: That you, I and all of life are ONE. You know a peace that passes all understanding.

And so peace be with you.
