Heavenletters ~ Wherever Your Feet May Land
Heavenletter #5515 Published on: December 30, 2015
You live under My umbrella, do you not know this? You live under a vast umbrella that covers the world. It is an Umbrella of Love. You cannot be cast out from under this umbrella. There is room for all. There is greater than room for all. There is love for all — if you could only know — if you could feel and live this –if you could be but content — if you could but know that Love is Truth, and nothing else is – how happy you would be.
You are fearful that love absconds from you. You consider death as lack of love. You consider that you may never have been loved or loved enough. The crux of the matter is that you do not love yourself enough, and so you may feel like a lone wanderer in the world, isolated and insulated from God and your very own Being.
You simply are irreconcilable with what feels to you like abandonment. Sometimes, in your sense of loss and irretrievability, you may feel like an orphan of the Universe. That you are forgotten and unnoticed and undervalued is the song you sing. For much of your time on Earth, you feel this, and life in the world seems to support this. In fact, you are quick to point out all the evidence for this abandonment.
What if you could turn your attention even slightly to a beneficent world? Instead, you seem to have felt at the mercy of the world, even harassed by the world. You hold on tightly to your convictions. You would dearly love to change the world, and, yet, you set yourself aside.
You abandon the world. You might run away if only you knew how. You would like to be done with world life or revamp it, if you knew how.
What if you are safe in the world, simply under My Umbrella of Love. What if you are? What are you wasting your time on then with all this wantingness?
Ah, what if you could live without the omen of fear? What if you could just live in love without fear of what could happen and live in love without despair of what does happen?
Perhaps, at best, you feel like a soldier trodding the Earth, wounded and weary of fighting. What if you could specialize in peace, and be a Granter of Peace to all you come upon?
You must know there is more to life than what you see. Perhaps you drop this idea too soon, or, you make the comment, and then you don’t go further with it.
Absolutely, there is more to life than you see. My Umbrella that you are under allows in the Bright Sun and the Pummeling Rain and the Cold and the Snow, and yet this Silk Umbrella keeps you safe from what you might call mortal wounds. Perhaps you feel that your heart has been shot through more than once.
More than living your life, you may be running away from it. You avoid it. You may hesitate to drink from the Well of Life. You would like to sanitize everything you touch with an antibiotic cloths the supermarkets offer as you enter. You may well not want to drink from the same dipper as everyone else in the Community Well. And so you may remove yourself further and further from Life in the World because you fear the risk of life.
I am telling you to jump into the Pool of Life. Leap in.
If you want a Good Life on Earth, make your life good. This is only the world you are living in. It is nothing but life. Do not leave it by the wayside. Do not sulk. Do not avoid the highways or the by-ways. You have a life to live, so live it. You are on a Journey of the Unknown and the Unexpected. I bless you on your path.
Take your knapsack and go out to seek your fortune. You are your own good fortune. You are not a mere fortune-hunter. To be alive on Earth in a body is your fortune. Sure, you are a wayfarer. You do not know every stick and berry on your way. You are, however, on your way. Set out for adventure. Claim your life as your own and remember the Umbrella I hold over you wherever your feet may land.
