He Is Come

Then, there is love
And the taste of life
like wild honey on my tongue
Sweet, fragrant and intense,
An exotic, unnamed song

Untested, bold horizons
begin to clap against my eyes
Enchanted sunlit gardens
Dawning, dappled skies

A world revealed, existing
alongside human misery and shame,
Eternal, always offered
should we just release all pain

The promise of our future
is greater than most dream
But first the fury and the famine,
all misery and greed
must be felt and healed forever
– the truth with new eyes seen

To embrace all forms of suffering,
to seek and change the cause,
Is the journey of the prophet
which he walks, stumbles,
or yet, crawls

In spite of opposition,
attack and rage-filled hate
Never wavering direction
He is assured of what awaits

Proof of God’s Munificence
to change all stone to flesh
He calls to all who suffer
I have journeyed through this tempest
I come to guide you to your rest

To champion both truth and love
and never shy away
This, the invitation to embrace
if we are to soar in full potential,
of our blessed, beloved race

He never covers over Truth
Instead seeks It with a fervour
In strong, untroubled voice he speaks
That It be known forever

A messenger coming now
to awaken us from slumber
Gentle, caring, humble
He has come to lead us yonder

He shows us how to reach this place
of beauty, truth and bliss
Beyond the jungle of our suffering
lies the life of spirit,
which even now, exists.

John 16:8

Self expression, desire and the soulmate relationship

A key part of the soulmate relationship is each half in a state of full allowance of the other; desiring and encouraging expression in the other.

Soulmate love involves the longing of each half, for the other to have full and free expression.

In essence, this is a supportive, loving and deeply felt heart desire for the other to be themselves.

Excerpt from a spirit message
Received 5th October, 2018

Living by Law {Jesus Quotes}

“The problem is not that we are afraid
It is that we honour fear above the Law.

If we choose to live in harmony with God’s Loving Laws,
all fear and painful emotion will naturally be released from us

Integrity to God’s Law is the key to complete emotional healing.

Heartfelt desire to live by God’s Laws and to honour them for the loving framework they provide is the only way to a continually growing relationship with God.”

 Jesus, March 2013

Here’s the Truth: while I profess to know a lot about God’s Laws and to love them. Too often when confronted with fear, I choose to disregard the Law and avoid what frightens me.

For a long time fear has tricked me into believing that Safety + Comfort = Love.

And the problem with living by fear’s definitions of ‘safety’ and ‘comfort’ is that over time these states I’ve aimed for don’t feel so safe or comfortable.

So over the past few months, I’ve experimented with simply living by the Law.

Here’s some things I’ve experienced as truth as a result:

-The choice to honour law is an emotional one. Once the emotional choice is made it guides action. This works far more easily than trying to control all actions, it also leads to further emotional release and realisations.

For every negative consequence for breaking one of God’s Laws there is a corresponding gift for living in harmony with it.

This is like the best bonus in the Universe! I feel so incredibly supported when I ‘(wo)man up’ and live by the Law.

Unless I have integrity  to God’s Laws I’ll never release fear

(i.e. unless I’m firm for love and truth in every situation, when fear is triggered I’ll make an excuse and sacrifice something, so I don’t feel so petrified)

Here’s a practical exercise I completed a few months ago that really helped me evaluate what a pervasive issue the sacrificing of God’s Laws was in my life.

I wrote the following question and headings in my journal:

Q. What would my life look like if I honoured what I already knew or believed about each Law everyday?

Law of Free Will

Law of Desire

Law of Cause & Effect

Without sharing all my answers, basically there were many ways that I could see that I was not living in harmony with these Laws or Principles.

I recommend this kind of exercise to both deepen self-reflection but also to assist with understanding what these Laws and Principles actually entail. Often doing this kind of work helps a person to see how little they really understand about the operation of the Law or how to apply the Principle to their personal situation. This can then trigger further questioning and learning.

Note from Mary: I was cleaning up my blog and found this old post written in 2013 ! I don’t know why I didn’t ever post it but here it is for you today.

For more information about God’s Principles and Laws, Jesus and I have now presented an entire Assistance Group which provides an introduction to the topic.

The Power of Faith

Usually we use the word faith to refer to faith in a positive sense – faith in God, faith in The Way, faith in love, and faith in truth. We make global statements that imply that faith is something we have, or do not have.

But every person has faith in something. Faith is the driving force behind every one of our actions, desires and aspirations.

We can have faith in evil, in passivity, in anger, in hopelessness, in cynicism, in addiction, in greed and selfishness. We can, and do, have faith in sin.

In order to change the world we must, as individuals, examine what we have faith in.

And then do the “dirty work” of facing and changing the painful emotions that support our current corrupt faith.

Only through individually and collectively restoring our faith, to be faith in what is good and true and pure, can we each find true joy and together transform the world.

A message from Paul

Recently I had the privilege to speak with an old friend of ours in the spirit world.

Jesus and I were discussing what we remembered of Paul and his life on earth and Jesus suggested I speak to Paul directly. Since, at the time, we had no capacity to record the mediumship session, I channeled directly on paper.

While I am usually shy to share messages that refer to our first century life or identities, I thought others may benefit from Paul’s message. I especially enjoyed how he expressed the impact receiving God’s Love has upon our gender injuries and his description of how first century healings took place.

My questions to Paul are in italics below and his responses in regular text.

Questions for Paul – 13th August, 2018

What was it like when Jesus appeared to you? (reference to Paul’s conversion)

I heard his voice in my head, I had a ‘knowing’ of who he was without him saying who he was, I simply knew. I didn’t see his physical form but it was as if I had looked directly into the sun – if the sun was much closer and filled my entire field of vision.

I felt his great love for me and, in that moment, I knew that God Loved in the same way.

I understood suddenly that all of my endeavours to gain status and respect in my community were in vain. I was walking a path of vanity and arrogance, eager for approval from an absent father. When Jesus appeared to me I immediately understood that this endeavour was shallow and would never have me receive the kind of love I knew in that moment.

After that moment, while I later continued on that same road to Damascus, I was following a new path, filled with a joy and faith that never left me for all of my remaining days on earth.

My eyes were merely burned and soon healed. I was grateful for my temporary blindness, it was a temporary symbol of my permanently changed focus from the external, physical world of man, to the internal and sacred journey of the soul.

I was fortunate to have had such a profound and life altering experience. A blessing surely.

It was a blessing which I endeavoured to pass forward to others. I saw my experience on the road, which opened my heart to God, as a gift that I wanted others to also receive. I wanted to offer my life as a demonstration of that same Love that I received and provide education as to how to receive it.

What errors would you correct?

Of course there is a great amount of history missing from the accounts of the Bible due to the almost global removal of references to women, women’s teaching and healing, and generally the difference in relationships that existed between men and women amongst early Christians.

While you yet still resist these memories, the relationship between you and Jesus did have an impact upon how The Way was understood by those around you. While you could not eradicate all of the cultural and societal injuries surrounding gender, it was widely accepted by most of us that women could and were equally capable when it came to healing, teaching and mediumship (three key ways that The Way was taught and demonstrated to others).

Much of our healing involved; the removal of spirit attachments, the channeling of loving energy from guides and God, the establishment of faith in the person who was ill through the gifting of love without prejudice (most who were ill were excluded and judged by society), and even through receiving guidance from spirits about the workings of the human body and the physical disease process. Luke was indeed an excellent physician because he had genuine desires and abilities in each of these areas.

Without understanding what we were doing, we did have some of what would be termed, “medical knowledge”. Though observing the earth today, it was rudimentary in the physical sense. However, so called modern medicine on earth could now advance in an extremely rapid way if it were to become open to the knowledge of spirits, the workings of the soul, and the power of God’s Love to heal all things.

But I digress,

Of course, I did not ever say those things attributed to me about the role of women and their dis allowance from teaching. While I admit that my relationship with the female gender was not fully healed at the time of my passing (and so I know that I still sinned greatly in my viewpoint and treatment of women while on earth) one cannot have received the Love of God and experienced the blessing of a long relationship with God and also maintain that women are of lesser value than men. When one has been Loved, one understands that love does not have prejudice, nor favour one gender or social class over another. Jesus was our greatest living example of this but God’s Love, when received, imparts this Truth to us all. Many of my other recorded statements reflect this knowledge.

I know that you also have questions about my associations on the earth.

It is true that I travelled a lot. For most of my life on earth in fact. And many younger than myself travelled with me at various times. While I did not know my children well, for they disavowed me after my famous “conversion”, I became like a father and grandfather to many of those younger men who travelled with me over the years.

It was most often men who travelled – it being safer and more accepted. Sometimes wives accompanied us but as I said, I was not perfected in my love for the gender and so I was not as inclusive as I may have been. The rejection from my first wife, whom I had married for love, was a wound that took time to heal.*

In reality, my heart was taken up with the zeal of sharing the news of Jesus and God with whomever would listen. I ‘left behind’ my grief about my wife, filled with a sense of purpose that I believed that God had given me. So you see that, even though I was filled with faith and knowledge of the Love of God, I was in many ways a foolish young man with many lessons still to learn.

I believe that Jesus appeared to me, that God allowed such an act, because my soul was ripe for change but also that I was already a man of action, who felt driven by principle. (It was only that my principles were flawed before I met him). So they both knew that I would never cease sharing of my experience and would remain driven that others should know the Love of God. For this, there were many blessings I received at my passing but there were still lessons to learn and opportunities that God had placed in my way on earth that I had overlooked.

By the time of my death I had found Sinai, a Christian woman of a similar age to myself, who I lived with and loved as though my wife. We were happy then but this was nothing of the happiness we now share. Having passed and commencing the healing of our injuries with men and women, we discovered ourselves to be soulmates and the bliss of this relationship is unlike anything apart from the Love of God.

We are not yet unified but grow with each other constantly.

But back to my associates,

Yes, Timothy was often with me. A smart and brave companion. Always noting things down, he understood the importance of what was being taught. Having known Jesus, he was as passionate as I that others should hear of his (Jesus’) work and teaching.

Luke was among us too on many occasions. Serious, studious and full of faith. He spoke of you and we listened well. I admit, to me, you were an almost mystical figure. We never met on earth but I regarded you as one who must be truly sacred to have known the love of Jesus and to carry on in his name.

Of course, now I know that you were a regular woman who simply shared our faith and passion. But such were the times and all of us pressed Luke for word of you whenever we met.

There were many others with me of course. Some came and went, and others were with me more constantly. Many friends and colleagues who did their part to support me, or teach with me, or learn from me. It truly was a great existence. To dedicate one’s life as a testament to God – wonderful!

Regarding my death,

Yes, this was in Rome where I lived for the final 5 years of my life after travelling became too much. Of course I didn’t count the years but I died in what I now know to be 70AD. I was quite old by standards of the day.

Yes, at certain times I was imprisoned but I had a relatively good relationship with Roman governance. Then, as now, religion was mainly politics and since I did not play political games I was not viewed with much fear.

I wrote some letters, yes. Remnants of which remain intact in your Bible. Others like Luke and Timothy wrote for me as well and some of their work appears in my name also.

I am not unhappy in general with the Bible rendition of my life. It holds some Truth and I believe it holds the power to open the willing heart to God and this was always my intention and desire.

The problem occurs when when men and women cling to words instead of trusting the wisdom of their heartfelt experience of God. It is only ever fear that causes a person to return to words, seeking a sense of security in what can be measured, desiring dictates in order to quell a rising tide of fear.

As you know, God’s Way is to continue on, allowing fear and uncertainty (which is also fear) to overwhelm us, so that we may overcome it forever more.

Many times in my life on earth I placed my trust in God. As I allowed my fear to rise up, I kept rudder and mast aligned to God, continuing on while the dread and uncertainty were experienced and passed from me; like a tempest weathered on the steady route Home.

Those who cling only to words allow themselves to take their hand from the rudder directing them toward God, they lose direction. At best, they end up in the doldrums where nothing happens; at worst they steer off course and end up in terrible torment, taking years, even centuries to recover.

And lastly, I will speak to you of who you are.

Your brain cannot yet conceptualise how all this may have occurred, how we may have lived on earth in a time long passed and again you sit on earth speaking with me now. But your heart does, I feel it as we speak.

There is much expansion of your emotional capacities required for you to harmoniously live with this truth. Instead of berating yourself for the situation, focus on the expansion of your emotional and spiritual capacities. Experiment as you are now, with your passions for teaching, healing and mediumship – the three methods we always used to share The Way.

You are wise, you are beautiful. Only allow it. I know you now as I never knew you when I lived on earth and your life may still be as a testament to God.

I affirm who you are. I say you are the Magdalene.

Your brother, your friend,

Paul

 

 

Update on Divine Truth Seminars

I had previously announced that we would be holding a public seminar in October.

Sadly, and despite quite an effort on Lena, Jesus and my parts, we weren’t able to find a suitable venue that would house all of our recording set up and potential guests on the Sunshine Coast in October this year.

So our scheduled seminar has had to be postponed. I know how excited some of you were for a new seminar. Thank you for that. We love sharing and seeing you and we know it has been quite a long time since we held shorter event.

We’ll keep looking for venues but at this stage it looks like we won’t hold a seminar of this kind until sometime in 2019 or 2020. Jesus and I, and the production team, are now full steam ahead preparing for the Assistance Groups and editing new studio recordings.

I know that the Assistance Groups are a larger time commitment but if you would like to attend and have the time available, there are still a few places remaining in Understanding Sin & Its Causes. You can reserve a ticket here: Understanding Sin & Its Causes Group 1

God’s Way has a strong desire and some plans in the works to build a new venue in our local area here in Queensland. This venue could host Divine Truth events and other free God’s Way information and education sessions. We are excited for this prospect. But since God’s Way is another organization reliant on volunteers and donations, this may take sometime. If you would like to stay updated about God’s Way plans and projects then you can subscribe to that blog here: https://blog.godsway.net/blog/

Dynamics between Jesus & Mary: A letter

*** This post has been updated – see end for a follow-up note from Mary ***

Hi,

This is the most difficult email I have ever written as I am going to make some critical comments about AJ and Mary in the following video. These comments come from the deepest recesses of my soul and make them with love as I believe they are true.

20180403-1440 God, Religion & Atheism, ABC QandA, Dawkins & Pell
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hTu2rThtTgE&list=PL4VN7gKEa2bSN-f_d9Y5jfTwTpVzzUi-M&index=2

I feel this is probably one of the worst interviews I have seen. Why? Because they both appear to be a couple of angry zealots rather than two of the most amazing people I have come to know and respect.

For a couple of years I have noticed that when AJ and Mary are in the studio and Mary is the interviewer, their personality changes and they seem to be competing with each other. It appears that Mary wants to be boss and in control whilst AJ doesn’t want to appear downtrodden so responds by raising his voice. There seems to a competition between them. Whilst this is happening, the message is lost and I cant be bothered going back and find out what they are saying.

This not the AJ and Mary I have come to know and respect after watching them on video and in person at three assistance groups for eight years. I suspect they are under enormous spirit influence and the spirits are trying another way to destroy their validity and their teaching of The Way.

If I am wrong please let me know.

Kind regards

J

***********************

Hi J,

Thank you for your feedback.

Over the years, there has been a dynamic occurring between Jesus and I during filming in which I do become very bossy and I either compete with Jesus or try to take control of the conversation.

At those times, for me, one of the following things are happening (usually more than one at once):
– I’m quite afraid about how something we’re discussing will be received by the public, and/or
– I’m attempting to maintain some sense of facade because I feel that something about me has been exposed that I am ashamed about, and/or
– I’m being attacked by spirits about other specific fears I’m yet to release

Rather than being soft to those fears, I try to exert control over what is being said or fall into a ‘defensive’/competitive mode with Jesus. In this fear based motivation, I often want Jesus to cover the topic in the way that I think it should be discussed.

Once I become bossy, Jesus, out of his love for truth, then has to become insistent with me so that he can get across the important message. Often, afterwards I realise just how irrational I have become in my fear of exposure and desire for control. Of course, as your email highlights, my behaviour at these times is actually harmful to how God’s Truth is received.

My only correction to what you have sensed is that it isn’t that Jesus ‘doesn’t want to appear downtrodden’. Jesus has a quality, that very few people really understand, that causes him to be very un-selfconscious while teaching. Instead, he is completely focused on God’s Truth. So at the times you mention, while he is quite insistent with me, and does interject, this is because he feels that the Truth conveyed in the recording is more important than anything else.

Also, he allows this dynamic to continue at times because, as I am expressing fear-based attitudes which many people share, he feels that his correction of me often has some benefit to the audience.

Jesus and I have discussed this dynamic between us many times in private and even stopped mid-recording on occasions for me to deal with what is happening for me.

Various people in the past have sensed the dynamic but through their injuries misinterpret what is going on. I’ve found that a lot of women don’t see me as ‘bossy’ at all, they think Jesus is the one who is doing the ‘bossing’ and rudely ‘cutting me off’. A lot of men have various feelings based on how they would view what is going on in the same situation. Some feel that Jesus should pander to me, or that he is trying to defend himself. None of these things are true but it is easy to see how those misinterpretations happen given the common injuries on earth today in both genders.

At this stage both Jesus and I are still works in progress. I do apologise that at times the recordings are difficult to listen to while I am progressing. That is something I take very seriously. I am working on my humility and specifically my addiction to avoid particular fears and shame relating to my first century experience.

I know that me being in a humble state makes a huge difference to the quality of my interviewing, my comments during discussions, and makes it a pleasure for both Jesus and I to complete the recordings. I think that this year we’ve had some great examples of that but also some not-so-great days where I have definitely missed the mark.

I’ll take a look at the video in question. I know that we hadn’t done much prep for that interview, and that I was a bit stressed about the topic we were discussing. We also later realised that we hadn’t covered all of the points made by Cardinal Pell during this segment of the interview so we had already considered re recording the discussion. However Jesus did feel that some good comments were made so we let it go public. It is unlikely that we will reconsider that now, as, in a way, it is a tangible example of us both as ‘works in progress’. We don’t edit our material to present a perfect facade. In fact, the only editing that happens in our videos is to remove coughs, breaks etc.

To live in harmony with God’s Laws we must be transparent and become comfortable with being transparent in, and about, our interactions. Obviously, I am not yet as humble as I could be but I do feel it is a demonstration of both my and Jesus’ humility that we leave recordings intact when we are creating our videos.

I’m not sure what you were referring to when you mentioned ‘zealotry’ but perhaps it is also worth mentioning that both Jesus and I do have some strong feelings about how God is currently mis-represented on Earth. We are passionate about people understanding that God exists and is Loving and so we do speak very frankly about religion and atheism. (if you have read the Bible this shouldn’t surprise you, if you consider how Jesus spoke with and about Pharisees). This does not mean that we judge those with religious or atheistic beliefs. We are though very direct when elements of those belief systems harm others. To be honest, severe harm is caused to people by teachers of false beliefs. At times people misunderstand our frankness, directness and enthusiasm for the subject as judgement or a lack of compassion for others. Both Jesus and I see the need to confront widely held misconceptions about God and atheism and in doing this we will need to be very upfront about the topics. Jesus’ firmness during discussion like these does at times trigger some of the fears I mentioned above and can kick the dynamic you mentioned.

Again, I appreciate the feedback and I’m glad for the opportunity to clarify the dynamic between Jesus and I. I would like to place this exchange on my blog so that others can benefit from the exchange.

It may help you to re watch the videos you mention and to feel what exactly in our exchanges you found difficult. You could revisit the material in an effort to learn more about your emotions regarding interactions between men and women. But in particular to feel about feel strong condemnation of false belief systems.

There is a common belief on the Earth that God has a tolerance for false belief systems however when you have a strong relationship with God, you will see that God actually feels very, very strongly about false belief systems. God is actually doing everything in His Power to ensure that false belief systems are ultimately destroyed. Any person who becomes at-one with God will have a deep desire to assist in the removal of these false belief systems from the planet. This is why Jesus in the first century had a very strong condemnation of the false belief systems of the day.

Usually, people on earth want us to be what they would classify as ‘tolerant’ of everything. But in reality we cannot be tolerant of belief systems that destroy the lives of people, not only on Earth, but also for a long time in the spirit world. When one tolerates, or desires that others tolerate, damaging belief systems they are actually supporting the continuation of these systems and contributing to suffering. One doesn’t need to be violent in their opposition but firmness and directness are required if false belief systems are going to be removed from the Earth.

The more Jesus and I progress, the more you will see us becoming firmer in our discussions about belief systems than we ever have been in the past. We will be zealous in our condemnation of any belief system that has a deep and long-lasting damaging effect on humanity. When you witness personally the amount of pain of suffering in the spirit world that results directly from these belief systems, we are very sure that you too will share our attitude.

Obviously, there is a lot more we could say on the subjects of religion and atheism but we’ll leave that to the continuing video presentations on the subject.

Mary

UPDATE  27 July 2018:

After responding to J, I reviewed the Religion & Atheism videos that he had mentioned in his letter to me. While it is true that Jesus and I do, at times, have the dynamic between us that I acknowledged in my response to J, the video in question was not a good example of this.

During the Religion and Atheism sessions I found that Jesus and I were fairly harmonious in our discussion and I certainly let Jesus have his say. We were very passionate and direct about the topic and I do think that, as I mentioned to J in my response, that this is potentially very triggering for those viewing those sessions.

 

 

 

New Events! Update to Divine Truth Events Schedule

Hi everyone,

I’m excited to let you know about some public events we are planning for the next 12 months. Please see the details below.

Weekend Seminar with Jesus & Mary

Dates: October 20 & 21 (tentative)
Location: Sunshine Coast (TBA)
Bookings not required

It has been a while since we held a weekend seminar. As a result there are now many people interested in Divine Truth who have not had the chance to attend a live presentation. So I’m excited to give these people the chance to attend an event for a day or two (a week-long Assistance Group is quite an investment of time for some).

More details about this event and confirmation of dates and venue will appear on the ‘What’s New’ and ‘Future Events’ pages of our website and on the events page  of this blog during July.

“Understanding Sin & Its Causes” Assistance Groups

We are pleased to announce that our planning for the fourth group in our “Education in Love” Assistance Group series underway and will be completed in July.

This group, “Understanding Sin & Its Causes”, and will be held two times, that is Groups 4.1 & 4.2.

Dates:
Group 4.1 – February 22 – March 2, 2019
Eventbrite listing

Group 4.2 – March 8 – 16, 2019
Eventbrite listing

Location: Noosaville, Queensland, Australia

Additional information about “Understanding Sin & Its Causes” Assistance Group

Because of the high demand for these groups we are making some logistical adjustments regarding our venue and accommodation to allow for larger numbers. Jesus and I want to offer everyone who has the desire the opportunity to attend.

From today we are releasing tickets to all of those on the waiting list for both groups and offering additional tickets. If you would like to attend this group we would love to see you. You can register via the Eventbrite links listed above.

If you do register and receive a ticket please don’t make your travel and accommodation arrangements until I confirm our final venue and accommodation. This notification will be given directly to ticket holders via email sometime over the next month.

Pre requisites

Unlike our other public events, such as the weekend seminar advertised above, we do have certain pre requisites for attendance at the “Education in Love” Assistance Group series. These pre requisites are as follows:

1. Intention to attend and participate in all presentations in the “Understanding Sin & Its Causes” Group

We ask that you only register and attend the Assistance Groups if you are willing to commit to full attendance of all presentations within the group. The full programme runs for 8 days and unless you live on the Sunshine Coast it is necessary to arrange your own travel, food and accommodation for this period and commit to attending presentations on 6 days.

Attending the group in full ensures that all participants can engage meaningfully with the material presented and gain the most from the programme.

2. View all earlier material in the “Education in Love” Assistance Group series

We ask all participants to have either attended or listened to the prior 3 groups in the series – in full. That is, to have attended or listened to:

Group 1 – “Developing My Will to Love”

Group 2 – “Developing My Loving Self”

Group 3 – “Understanding God’s Loving Laws”

Each of these groups was presented twice, e.g. Group 1.1 & 1.2 etc. I recommend watching both instances for each group as each presentation was different and engaging. I re watch this material myself. However we do understand that this is a large time commitment (196 hours) and so only ask that you have viewed at least one version of Groups 1-3.

The material in Group 3 – “Understanding God’s Loving Laws” is particularly important to your understanding of “Understanding Sin & Its Causes”.

I have placed links to the Group 3 playlists below:

Group 3.1

Group 3.2

Why we have Pre requisites

Your complete attendance and prior viewing of the material in the Education in Love Assistance Group series will help you to gain the most from the “Understanding Sin & Its Causes” presentations.

It is also a sign of love towards the time and effort we have placed into the preparation, delivery and production of the material. Jesus and I spend a great deal of time feeling, thinking and planning the best way to present the material in each group. We want presentations to be relevant to your stage of spiritual development, practical and meaningful. When people don’t show up when they said they would, when they attend half halfheartedly, or they haven’t previously watched the earlier material, they display a lack of care for our efforts.

In addition, your familiarity with the material that has already been presented means that we don’t need to spend time explaining concepts that have been already taught in the earlier groups. We can use our time with you to engage new material and lessons and you don’t waste presenters or other participants time.

“Developing My Will to Love” Group 2

Costs & Donations

As with all our events, this Assistance Group is offered free of charge.

However for all the groups in the “Education in Love” series we inform every one of our running expenses. Given that the group is long, and we must pay for travel, accommodation and venue hire for an extended period, capture and store a lot of digital data, replace and maintain our technical equipment, and accommodate and feed ourselves and our technical production team during that time, we do have fairly substantial running costs for each group. The total running costs for groups 4.1 & 4.2 is $62, 000 AUD.

If you wish to donate to help cover these expenses, I will publicize the definite average cost we incur per person attending once I have final costing from our venue and accommodation. At this stage the average looks to be around $260-$300 AUD per person in attendance. This is without your personal costs for travel, food and accommodation. Your venue accommodation will vary from $80 to $187 AUD pp per night.

Donations towards our expenses can be made after I confirm the final figures via the donate page on our website by clicking on the Australian Assistance Group button. Please don’t donate yet. I’ll make another announcement when it is time.

Attending “Understanding Sin & Its Causes” in Conjunction with the Volunteer Selection Project

There will be another instance of the God’s Way & Divine Truth Volunteer Selection Project commencing a fortnight after Group 4.2.

For this reason, if you live overseas or interstate and you would like to take part in both the “Understanding Sin & Its Causes” Assistance Group and the Volunteer Selection Project, we recommend you register a place in the Assistance Group 4.2. This will lessen the time you need to allow for travel and accommodation in Queensland.

You can register to participate in the Volunteer Selection on the God’s Way Eventbrite page.

Please note: Registration of your interest in the Volunteer Selection does not automatically confirm your participation. And if accepted you will need to make further personal arrangements for accommodation and travel during the Selection Project in Wilkesdale, Queensland, Australia.

Those Who have been Previously Removed from Assistance Groups

We would like to offer the opportunity to all of those who were previously removed from Assistance Groups in this series to attend the “Understanding Sin & Its Causes” group.

As in the earlier groups we will ask any participant who displays and engages the following attitudes and behaviours to leave the group:

  • a consistently resistive attitude
  • willful lack of self-awareness and desire to stay in denial
  • strong want to remain in co dependence with spirits
  • attack of presenters, technical team, venue staff or other participants

We do this out of our love and care for each person involved. It is a demonstration of our desire and willingness to live in harmony with the Principles we are teaching at each group.

Cancellation & Non Attendance

As these events require a lot of logistical planning, preparation and time and there are limited spaces available we have a firm policy on late cancellation and non-attendance. That is, if people register and fail to attend, or cancel within one month of the group (without good reason), then that person will no longer be able to attend future events of the same nature (that is, groups with limited spaces requiring registration).

This is fair and loving as it ensures that those with a sincere intent and ethical approach are given the opportunity to attend. If people register and do not attend this limits other people from attending in their place.

**********

That’s all from me for now. Thanks to everyone for your interest in the material and presentations.

Hope to see you at a live event sometime over the next year!

 

Thank you

Hi everyone,

I am well overdue for a long Jesus & Mary ‘What We’ve Been Up To’ Update but as often happens, the more we get up to, the less time for updates! We have been extremely busy with both Divine Truth and God’s Way in 2018.

Much of the work has happened behind the scenes so I do plan to write a full update of all of those things that we’ve been occupied with over the last 6 months very soon.

In the meantime, I wanted to take a moment to express our sincere thanks to all of you who donate to us on a regular, intermittent (or even one-off) basis.

Jesus and I often remark about how grateful we are to each of you and how fortunate it is to be able to do what we love and have others appreciate that. Words often fall short in expressing what we feel.

Thank you.

 

What causes lung cancer? A letter

I recently received an email from an acquaintance asking me about the causes of lung cancer. Her mother died of lung cancer and my acquaintance was concerned that she may share the same emotions that created the disease in her mother.

I thought that others may benefit from the explanation of the disease which Jesus assisted me to write. I think that this story also gives some insight into why many of us hold onto co dependent relationships and don’t confront unloving issues in ourselves or the people around us.

I have removed the names and some of the identifying details.

Hi R,

How lovely to hear from you.

Thank you for your very kind comments about The Sleep State video. It certainly was a challenging talk to give but I’m glad that people can gain something from it now.

From your email it sounds like you are writing to us because events and people in your life are causing you to think more seriously about this cancer issue and you have questions about what causes it. And that that very persistent guide of yours that you mentioned is attempting to have you look at what is happening for you in lots of areas of your life?

I always feel so grateful and amazed about the way that the Law of Attraction brings clues, triggers and at times what feels like loud speaker notifications (smile) about what we need to look at in our lives. It isn’t always comfortable but I have come to see it as an incredible gift.

So at the moment the Law is obviously working to have you question the causes of your Mum’s cancer. And Jesus & I both agree that you do have many of the same emotions within you that created her cancer so releasing these emotions and making some changes in your life now is going to help to prevent you from developing the same illness.

In a nutshell, lung cancer is caused by the angry demand that, if you work for others, then they should help you to avoid your grief.

Your Mum had a lot of grief from her childhood and from events throughout her life that she didn’t want to experience. In addition, she had the injured belief that she was entitled to expect the people around her (you, your brother and especially her husband) to support her to avoid her grief, as long as she worked hard and did a lot for you in return. This was the “barter” system or “payment” method that she thought was just and loving. The dynamic she set up in the family was “I’ll work for you as long as you help me to avoid how sad I am.”

Your Dad, who was the primary person she demanded this kind of support to avoid grief from, was willing to go along with that for most of their marriage because he wants a woman to take care of all the ‘hard things’ that he doesn’t want to deal with. Your Mum was willing to do those things but only in return for his support to avoid her grief. Your Mum tolerated a lot of bad, unloving behaviour from your Dad mainly just because she wanted this one addiction met.

Obviously, as you would have seen as their marriage went on, there were times when this ‘arrangement’ (technically, it is a co dependence between them) didn’t work for them. One of them didn’t supply what the other expected and so they become angry with the other, or they involved one of their kids (you or your brother) in trying to meet their demand. Instead of getting the demand met from their partner they substituted one of the children for their partner. This is why your Dad now relies on you to do ‘hard things’ that he feels he shouldn’t have to do and why your brother took on the role of ‘looking after’ your Mum’s sadness at times. This means that you are now required to look after your Dad’s demands, this actually makes you very sad.

Also, over time, your Mum naturally became tired and angry about always having to do the work her husband was unwilling to do and having to put up with many unloving acts and behaviour on his part. However she was never willing to confront him on the lack of equity in what he expected of her, versus what he expects of himself because your Mum wasn’t willing to give up her emotional belief that she shouldn’t have to cry, grieve and feel about all the loss that has happened in her life. So Mum had addictions like your Dad but Dad’s addictions are just more obvious. (I feel she is doing better with feeling her sadness since she passed, and in part I think that she is now trying to help you to see what happened for her so that you can deal with those same issues – because both she and your Dad taught you to have them – while you are still on earth).

Over time your Mum gave up on trying to have your Dad make her sadness go away (as you know your Dad added to a lot of her sadness) but her involvement in the family business meant that a lot of other people looked up to her and respected her and this helped her avoid a lot of her sadness with your father and her sadness from her childhood.

So by now you can probably see that you do have the same attitudes to grief, and the belief that any person you work for should support you in the avoidance of grief, as your Mum had. And hopefully you can start to see that in the past your Dad has been attempting to have the same relationship with you as he did with your Mum, and that now he is now trying to have that same relationship with another woman.

You now have the same co dependence with your husband that your Mum had with your Dad. In your relationship as it currently is, it is highly likely that your husband will add to your grief, just like your Dad added to your Mum’s.

I know from your brother that you experience intense migraines. Migraines are always caused by the person using a lot of energy to shut down their experience of grief and sadness.

So, the key things to for you to do in order to become happier and the way to prevent you developing cancer, are:

1. Identify and remove your co dependence with the people in your life

To do this you will need to examine what demands you have of your father, husband and brother (and any other people in your life). At the moment you want to have them support and assist you in to avoid feeling your grief (including feelings of sadness, disappointment, loss, etc.) and you are willing to work hard and sacrifice yourself emotionally to have them do this for you. This is already taking its toll on you.

Initially identifying your co dependence may be quite tricky to do.

Unfortunately, your Mum taught you through her example, that grief was too much for a person to feel and that the only thing to do was to work hard so that her husband, children or others in her life may look up to her, respect her, love her so that she didn’t feel sad anymore. When people did respect her and love her she was able to avoid her sadness for a short time. She felt angry if she this didn’t happen because she believed she shouldn’t have to feel sad, ever.

So, because Mum modeled this to you, you also feel that you shouldn’t have to feel sad and you work (either physically or emotionally, usually both) for others in an attempt to have those others “love” you so you can avoid ever feeling sad. This actually means that you now have an angry demand that others assist you to always feel happy and never feel sad. Your migraines are proof that you are putting a lot of energy into attempting to not feel sad.

All of this means that you are going to have to be really honest with yourself to see ALL of the ways you are in a ‘barter’ with the people around you. You are trying to avoid sadness as much as you are able to by doing things for others and have them help you avoid your sadness.

You will be tempted to call a lot of your co dependence with your husband and your Dad “normal” since this dynamic is what your Mum taught you was loving behaviour in a relationship. It is also highly likely that your husband and your Dad are going to disappoint you because at the moment both of them are quite selfish but willing to nurse a women as long as she does what they want. However, if you can be really honest and start to identify these methods and come to see that they are NOT loving, then you will be taking the first steps to reversing the situation.

Next, you will need to start seeking to understand and analysing what truly loving behaviour, emotions, relationships and attitudes are, and to act in accordance with those. This means you analysing your own behaviour, emotions, expectations and attitudes and to see that it is unloving to avoid feeling your own sadness. That it is unloving to do things to help you avoid your own sadness and it is unloving to not confront the unloving behaviour of other people in your life. You keep avoiding the unloving behaviour of other people towards you which only adds to your sadness and causes you to have to do even more things to avoid your sadness.

2. Begin to experience your grief

This step is essential. By grief I mean not just your grief at your Mum’s passing but also the sadness you have stored throughout your life where you have had to work to get other people’s approval and acceptance, particularly with men.

While feeling your grief will mean feeling sad for a time, by doing this you will also begin to feel a lot more free and relieved in your life.

Experiencing your sadness will also lead to greater self confidence and self knowledge. At the moment, because you are shutting down a lot of your grief, and even the awareness of what you are sad about, you don’t really know yourself well and you also end up feeling very dependent on men (which, while you rely on them to help you avoid your grief, you are). This feeling of dependency means that you can’t feel confident of your own ability to be yourself and or to look after yourself in the world. While you have this injury you will always feel that you ‘need’ a man. This isn’t good for your self worth and it also leads to the situation where you will end up feeling resentful in your marriage or with your Dad etc. Because the men around you can feel from you that you are willing to be treated badly as long as they help you avoid grief, they will take advantage of this.

You will end up feeling that you can’t change things in your relationships because you risk confronting the man so much that he may no longer meet your addiction to avoid your sadness. Because you are afraid to confront men in their unloving or unethical demands of you (for fear of them no longer helping you to avoid grief) you end up in a situation where you feel very angry with them about many issues that are unhealthy in the relationship. However you force all of this down and nevwr express it so that you can maintain the co dependence but you end up bitter and resentful under the surface. In other words, you end up unhappy, more sad and your relationships, you and the men around you don’t reach the potential they could reach if you were willing to confront their unloving behaviour and feel your grief. If you think about it, this is exactly how your Mum felt in her relationship with your Dad.

At the moment you have a tendency to ignore the fact that you are already being treated badly in your relationship with your husband and father. You wish to ignore it so that you don’t have to feel sad about it and do something about it. You end up being stuck like superglue to people who are contributing to your sadness because you feel dependent on them to help you avoid sadness. It is illogical but this is what it is like.

Your Mum was ignoring the fact that there was a lot of sadness in her about her relationship with your Dad. She didn’t want to raise it because it would make her feel even more sad than she already felt. She gave up on her husband ever cheering her up but used her work as a way of avoiding her sadness instead.

So the problem for both you and your Mum is the demand on life, and the world around you, to help you to avoid feeling sad. You are currently denying a lot of truth in your life so that you don’t have to feel more sad. But it won’t work.

This also makes you feel angry at anyone who doesn’t help you to avoid sadness. In this injury, you feel like people aren’t loving you or caring about you while they don’t take your sadness go away.

At the moment you feel unloved by your Dad because he isn’t helping you avoid your sadness and he is also being unloving towards you by putting extreme demands on you to run the business etc. So the key is to identify that you are unloving by expecting others to help you avoid sadness. But that at the sme time you are actually sad because he and others are unloving towards you.

R, I hope all of that helps, there is more I could say but I sense that what I have said is probably enough to digest for now. I just read this email to Jesus and he has helped me to refine some things and hopefully explain things clearly.

The trouble with written communication is that it can be easily misinterpreted. If you do have any other questions you can email me and I am happy to try to explain further.

It was lovely for me to have the chance to speak with you a little. When we visited I didn’t really get to do that.

Love,
Mary
