On the human plane, on the mortal plane…people are playing different roles. Some of them are playing big roles, and some of them are playing little roles. But on the spiritual plane it’s not like that. The souls are all the same. There are not big souls and little souls (lots of laughter). And that you have to remember when I give you the next quote.
Master said, “God loves YOU”–now you take that personally, this is for each one of you–“God loves YOU, His Child, as much as he loves Jesus.”
And that’s why you have to think, we are all the same size soul. If you think of outer role, and you hear that quote, ‘God loves you as much as Jesus, you say, ‘No way,’ isn’t it? (laughter) But if you think that we are all souls and all Children of God, then eventually you will accept it, that God loves YOU as much as he loves Jesus.
Now, I want you to take that home with you, don’t forget it. And when you really absorb it, you will never be the same again. Believe me, you will never be the same again. And now so that you don’t forget, I give you some homework. (laughter) It’s not much work, doesn’t take much time, it’s very simple. You write, on a piece of paper, you write that quote, “God loves YOU, His Child, as much as he loves Jesus.” Then you put that little piece of paper, you put it on the corner of your favorite mirror, hmmm? (laugher) And then every time you look into the mirror, and you see your face, you say… “I am the Soul, I am a Child of God.” And then you read that quote again, “God loves you His Child as much as he loves Jesus.”
And you keep on doing that every day, and it will change your life. And it will change your meditations. It will change your meditations… You practice the techniques first, to calm down, you interiorize your energy, interiorize your consciousness, and THEN the actual meditation begins. Then you are with God, you are in the presence of God. And then—love Him, love Him, Him who loves you beyond your imagination. As a saint said, “Abandon yourself into the arms of Love. Abandon yourself into the arms of Love.” Remember, how much God loves you, beyond your imagination.
And so you keep on doing that, every day. And outwardly you keep on playing your role in Divine Mother’s Halloween show (much laughter). But inwardly you remember, you’re a Child of God. Inwardly remember, you’re a Child of God. Keep on doing your homework, don’t forget.
