Asleep & Unreal
OR Awake & Real
The heavenly Father’s divine love is here for us, if we will only desire it with a true heart and soul longing. Love never forces itself upon another, it is against its nature, thus we must desire it.
If we honestly desire it, it means we are willing for it to change us and mold us in any way that it leads us, for this love of divinity always leads us deeper into itself, thus into perfection and more love. This is how we are purified to a pristine soul, for when we walk and abide in divine love we start to live in increasing purity for this is its nature. We can’t be a part of divine love and give this love, and remain soiled in our soul. This is why divine love is a great healer in many ways; it changes everything in our mind, soul, spirit, and body.
In receiving this inflow of divine love we are transformed into new creations, inside out. Again divine love is love of divinity, the love of the heavenly Father, versus mere human or natural love. It’s a love that contains thus reflects the characteristics of the heavenly Father.
This concept of how we receive divine love relies heavily upon mankind’s will to desire it. This leads to the idea of mankind’s “free” will. If they reject this love, then their will must be free to do so, right? Not exactly.
Our will follows our desires. Desires are shaped at a subconscious level by many things, that we are aware of and aren’t aware of, and thus are anything but free; therefore neither is our will free that follows it.
In this land of an unreal psychological reality, lies, fears, and images are the defining factors shaping mankind’s desires thus will. (unreal psychological reality = a perception of reality based on what is not real, i.e. lies and images) All of these elements based in the unreal are contrary to this divine love. So in pursuing desires based upon them, we can’t attain what we all truly desire, divine love. So as our desires are bound by lies, “free” will is an illusion. There is nothing more binding than a lie we believe to be the truth. Our will is shaped by our desires that are shaped by the influences of truth or error around us. Only desires shaped by divine love manifest the real, a true inflow of the love of God. All other desires shaped by the unreal keep us bound to a lack of that love, thus the unreal. And what I have learned of divine love is it’s the true desire of every soul whether they realize it or not.
So if mankind’s desires can be shaped and influenced, which this is obviously the case, then my question is why doesn’t the heavenly Father’s divine love come and shape those desires for His love? If this love is a great power, which it is when we experience its nature and influence in our lives, why isn’t it actively influencing souls and crafting mankind’s desires? Is a lie that is unreal more powerful than His love that is real?
In the unreal this love isn’t known, for it exists only in the real. With the plethora and extent of lies posing as truth, this divine love isn’t known or recognized, thus it isn’t believed that it exists. Very few people know and believe it, so it isn’t seen among the masses, thus isn’t believed in. It’s similar to when people believed the earth was flat. It wasn’t questioned until more understanding and knowledge came along to the masses, then it was understood and accepted that it was round.
In “Stirring the Deep”, I’ve stirred my way right out of this reality. If we were in the real, the heavenly Father’s divine love would be influencing every soul and drawing it into itself. This is the nature of love: it cares, it never fails, and it looks out for the weaker, and it does for the weaker what it can’t do for itself.
When we come to understand and know the divine love of our heavenly Father, we realize that a place of suffering (created by an unreal psychological reality that is void of the love of God), isn’t truly real, but only a reflection of the state of our mind, like a dream. We go to sleep and enter a different reality, and yet in the dream state we believe it is real, until we “wake” up. So, I’m wondering if we are in a dream state, a sleep state, in which we experience an unreal reality for purposes of soul development? And we awaken out of this sleep as we start to move into the real, the divine love of God?
In divine love, death doesn’t exist. It can’t. It couldn’t be a reality in the midst of divine love. This is why death can and will be destroyed; it is based on the unreal and only an illusion of an unreal reality.
So if this love is in the real and we are in the unreal, how is that gap bridged?
I pray for a great awakening in mankind’s soul perceptions to the reality of divine love.
By the way, Happy New Year. May it be one of a great emergence from the unreal to the real.
