Good morning, dear Saul. I was getting very irritated yesterday as I
was retyping book material: so much “joy,” “delight,” “bliss”. . . and
“SOON”! And the illusion seems to roll on — essentially, seemingly
unchanged. How can I go on putting your continuously upbeat forecasts
about humanity’s imminent move into full consciousness and
into the public domain? You (and others) have been saying “soon” for at
least ten years, yet conflicts, wars, and environmental destruction
continue apace. Comments on the blog that question the use of the word
“soon” and that remark that this kind of message is not new and that
nothing changes, all seem quite valid to me.

So how do I overcome my doubts and my lack of faith that all is as it
should be and help our readers to do the same? I am ready for your
words of advice and encouragement. Please help me to relax and allow,
and then guide my pen.

Good morning John, your doubts and anxieties are understandable. God
has promised joy, and He always delivers, but you have to. . . accept.

Very many of you continue to argue and fight among yourselves about
which channeled messages — if any — are valid. They all have validity,
but their messages vary because those receiving them are different,
have different hopes and prejudices, and have different basic
vocabularies through which the messages are filtered.

To change the world you have to change yourselves, which means being
forgiving, loving, accepting, and cooperative. When you are at war with
yourselves, you see God, the Holy Spirit, Angels, guides, and channeled
entities preaching Love and Light. And you look and see where it
hasn’t got you! Humanity’s outlook is still: What’s the point, It’s a
dog-eat-dog world, You’ve got to protect yourself. . . no one else will.
You are not extending and sharing the of God’s infinite Love
for you, instead you continue to create and send out mistrust, doubt,
and fear, which feeds and strengthens the illusory reality instead of
helping to dissolve it.

Jesus was loving kindness, forgiveness, and acceptance. Yes, in the
short term, He was crucified, but He set the foundations for a new way
to live, and many of you have followed His example and found peace in
your lives. For the world to change you all have to offer peace and
love and acceptance in every moment. So long as you wait for others or
your governments to do it, so long will you continue to wait.

You know non-violence works, it has been demonstrated — in the
first half of the twentieth century, young people in the USA in the 60s
and 70s, and young people in in the 80s and 90s — but
when the cause is won people tend to go back to their old ways,
complaining and seeing themselves as victims (of some other form of
injustice), and they close themselves off again from one another in
fear.

The way forward is to love your way through your fear by dropping
your defenses, and responding to perceived attacks with kindness,
compassion, and a desire to understand the other’s pain. Then accept
yourselves and others with compassion — always. Responding to perceived
attack in any other way maintains and strengthens the state of
conflict. You have to open your arms in love in every situation,
releasing your fears and your doubts. It most definitely does work, but
you cannot know this until you do it.

When you start to respond with love and acceptance instead of fear
and anger, your whole life experience will change. More people than
ever before are doing this, and it is having an enormous effect. The
balance is shifting rapidly toward non-violence, while confrontation and
attack are becoming most unfashionable and will soon be unacceptable.
So do your bit; respond always with loving kindness, and watch
peacefully and joyously as weapons are laid down forever, and the
attitudes that encourage and support them melt.

It will happen — one person at a time. Except that the moment is
fast approaching when all the rest will do it at the same instant, to
bring in the promised and long-awaited new Golden Age. God has promised
it, and as you all know deep in your heart, He always delivers.
Embrace love once more, and this time maintain that state, knowing that
you are divinely supported and that you cannot fail.

With so very much love, Saul.
