Until you release attitudes of judgment and blame, and until you stop nurturing desires to see those whom you feel have offended, hurt, taken advantage of you or betrayed you, taken to task and punished for their misdeeds you will not awaken...This is the most profound and effective way that you can prepare for your grand awakening.

As humanity’s time for being lost in the illusion of its collective, imaginary physical reality rolls towards its conclusion, continue to focus on your intent to change your unloving attitudes for the divine one of indiscriminate, unconditional love, and practice that at all times, allowing it to direct all your thoughts, words, and actions. This is the most profound and effective way that you can prepare for your grand awakening. Until you release attitudes of judgment and blame, and until you stop nurturing desires to see those whom you feel have offended, hurt, taken advantage of you or betrayed you, taken to task and punished for their misdeeds you will not awaken.
The reason for this is that while you hold those beliefs you would feel totally out of place and extremely uncomfortable – even betrayed! – to be in a place where all are unconditionally loved. It would seem so unfair to you that those “miserable, selfish beings who had hurt you so cruelly” could be accepted wholeheartedly and lovingly by God. It is as simple as that. Love is indiscriminately accepting and all encompassing, but unloving attitudes demand to be separate from those judged to be wrong, or sinners. It would be a total mismatch, a state of utter incompatibility, and you just could not bear to be there!
Judgment is a projection, a dissociation, a displacement activity, whereby someone who feels guilty or unworthy attempts to distract and even distance himself from that fearful state by focusing his attention on the wrongdoings of others, and by then gloatingly calling them to the attention of others. The underlying condition of someone who behaves in that fashion is one of bitter unhappiness and dread lest his own misdemeanors should be uncovered. Most humans have experienced occasions when they have felt very unhappy, and to be in the presence of someone who is feeling exhilaratingly happy only intensifies that feeling, and their one desire is to be somewhere else! To be in Heaven, in Reality, while feeling the need to be separate from others perceived as unacceptable would be excruciatingly painful.
The resolution to this conundrum is forgiveness. This is why everyone’s unaddressed issues are bursting up from their unconscious for recognition and release. Every human has unaddressed issues – they are part of the human condition – and they can no longer remain hidden and unacknowledged. Denial has been a very valuable tool for humanity, because it has enabled those in pain to distract themselves from it and focus on survival. However, there comes a time when that which has been denied must be faced and resolved. Frequently, denial involves an intrinsic sense of unworthiness which has been strengthened and confirmed during infancy, childhood, adolescence, and young adulthood by parents, peer groups, cultural mores, and religious and state authorities. It can be quite devastating for an individual, hence the need for denial.
As the adult continues to grow and gain worldly wisdom and experience, it becomes apparent that most others are also guilty of the same or similar shameful habits and beliefs. This can lead to an epiphany whereby the individual realizes that he is not abnormal, and that there is nothing of which he needs to feel ashamed, or conversely, it can lead to an even stronger need for denial as he accepts that he and those others are indeed shameful people. Either way, those issues now need to be addressed and released, which is why practically all channeled material emphasizes and re-emphasizes that you are, each one of you, perfect divine creations infinitely and eternally loved by God, and that there are no exceptions to this divine Truth.
So accept this Truth, embrace It, know that You are not a body with all the inadequacies and limitations that it implies, and forgive yourselves for any and every failing, sin, or crime you think you have committed – they never happened because your present state is illusory! You are all divinely loved because you are your Father’s perfect children, and thus, not to forgive and love yourselves is insane. And when you do forgive yourselves, as you will, then you will find yourselves forgiving and accepting others – eventually, without indiscrimination – and you will then be ready to awaken. Hallelujah!
With so very much love, naturally, Saul.
