Sleeping Beauty and the Prince : 25 th Febr. 2012.
You are waking up to Truth. Truth has been shaking you by the shoulder for a long time, and now you are waking up. You have been Sleeping Beauty, and the Prince who awakens you is Truth. You go beyond the sleeping self and awaken to a world in which you know the Magnificence you have always been. You have been accustomed to being sleepy, and now you awake to the True Knowledge that you are. You wake up to you. You are the one who has been sleeping, and you are the one who wakes yourself up. It is your own hand that shakes you awake. The Prince isn’t someone else.
The Prince and the Sleeping Beauty are one and the same. That must be so because everything is contained within yourself.
Have you not sometimes surprised yourself at the wisdom that seems to fall from your lips? Have you not sometimes been amazed at all that life is? Are you not familiar with waking up and falling back to sleep and waking up again?
You are familiar with everything, beloveds. There are no secrets held from you. You hold them from yourself. You keep Truth at arm’s length. You have drawn an invisible line past which you have decided not to go. One fear or another has held you back.
And yet you have more to go, and you crave to go further, and yet you hold yourself back.
In one stroke, you can free yourself from seeming less than Greatness. Desire and you will hatch the egg of wisdom that has always been yours. No one can open your eyes for you. At My nudging, wake up and see as I see and love as I love. Open up your eyes.
All knowledge is recognition. It is not new to you. You have always known Everything. Your heart has always known, and your heart has been bereft of entering the Palace of Full Love. What is Truth but love? Made in My image, you are the Truth of Me. Image does not mean imitation. You are the Real Thing, always were. Tremendous are you.
Now you are guided to Truth. Now you can step out of that old picture of yourself that you have carried around with you. You can declare peace to yourself now. Fear and tension have kept Truth baying at your door. Not daring to admit Truth, you have shooed Truth away. You forgot that it is your own True Self knocking at the door. Answer the door. Say hello to yourself. Stand up and become the Real You. Be your Self.
I will introduce you to yourself. You have held yourself at a distance. Heretofore, you have been looking into a wavy glass and seeing a mixed reflection. Look within and see your essence, for it is Mine. This is what you have been looking for. This is what you have been seeking all your life. Truth is not outside you. Truth is inside you and always was. The Truth of you is really not such a stranger as you have led yourself to believe.
Pull yourself up by your bootstraps, if you must. You yourself are Great Truth. I think you have been hiding behind the Door of Heaven, a door you have made up. You must have made up the door you hide behind because doors are a fiction. In Heaven, there is openness, no boundaries, no doors. All is open. Open yourself to Openness. Walk in. I have been waiting for you.

Catch the Heaven Train : 26th Febr. 2012.
Come, sit down with Me. Let Us recall Truth and forget everything else, for all else can only be imagined. You thought of all else. You feared that Truth is a wolf at your door, ready to eat you up. Soon, before you know it, you will not be what you have imagined. You will never be the same, the same as you imagined, for fear will have left your side.
Ah, what you can be when fear has gone out the window! What a bug-a-boo fear has been. You have fallen for a trick of the mind and abolished Truth. You have worked hard at abolishing Truth. Abolish fear now. Open the windows. You have believed in shadows, and you saw not Truth.
You thought the wind was banging at the windows. It was Truth knocking. Let Truth in. How long will you try to keep Truth out? Truth can only vanquish you which is to say Truth will win you over, and you will be winner of the day. Truth has been waiting for you around the corner. Actually, Truth has been waiting for you within your heart. Truth has stood on its head to get your attention while your attention has been on something else, perhaps the details of life on Earth. You mistook the details for Truth. You misled yourself. You got yourself off track. You caught a train that took you nowhere. It took you to the outback somewhere and left you to wander.
Catch the A-train. It is the Heaven Train. There is no ticket to buy. You have already arrived. It’s just that you haven’t believed it, as if it were too much for you to believe that from Heaven you came, and that in Heaven you are and nowhere else. There is nowhere else. It was easier for you to believe in lesser things. You accepted less and foreswore Greatness. Nevertheless, Greatness will not be silent for long. Greatness has an impelling voice. You were born to Greatness from the first day I thought of you. From Greatness comes Greatness. Discover your Greatness now. It is not new. You went off on a tangent, and now you are returning from your tangent.
All the turmoil in your life on Earth was simply a picture-show. You simply had a bad dream of a wolf appearing at your door. You were fascinated with his appearance, his big teeth and all. You mistook the picture on the screen for the screen, and, therefore, you allowed yourself to be terrorized. You are recovering now. You are finding the underpinnings of yourself. Soon you will burst into song, and you will declare of the Truth of your Self Who art Everyone, which means you are I. There is no place like Heaven. There is no other place than Heaven. Of course, your imagination has done a good job of imagining. You believed in distortion over Truth. Distortion was right in your face. Heaven was in your heart, and yet you chose distortion and called it real.
Your heart was not convinced, however. Your heart knew there was much more than the surface of life. Your heart knew, and yet your heart was not listened to. Your heart has always known. You chose discontent over the simplicity of your heart.
Of course, how can a King be satisfied with less than His Kingdom? How can you be satisfied with less than Truth? You simply have kidded yourself and gone off in many directions. You were an explorer and did not immediately find what you were deeply looking for. You were looking in the wrong places. You have to turn around and come back Home in order to find yourself in all your brilliance, for brilliant you are.
