God is love and love is all there is
And God Said...
And God said, "I talk to everyone. All the time. The question is not to whom do I talk but who listens?
"The Highest Thought - Always that thought which contains joy
"I do not communicate by words alone. In fact, rarely do I do so. My most common form of communication is through feeling. Feeling is the language of the soul. If you want to know what's true for you about something, look to how you're feeling about it.
"I also communicate with thought. In communicating with thought, I often use images and pictures. For this reason, thoughts are more effective than mere words as tools of communication.
"In addition to feelings and thoughts, I also use the vehicle of experience as a grand communicator.
"And finally, when feelings, thoughts, and experience all fail, I use words. Words are really the least effective communicator. They are most open to misinterpretation, most often misunderstood.
"Now the supreme irony here is that you have all placed so much importance on the Word of God and so little on the experience. In fact, you place so little value on experience that when what you experience of God differs from what you've heard of God, you automatically discard the experience and own the words, when it should be just the other way around.
"Many words have been uttered by others, in My name. Many thoughts and many feelings have been sponsored by causes not of My creation. Many experiences result from these. The challenge is one of discernment. The difficulty is knowing the difference between messages from God and data from other sources. Discrimination is a simple matter with the application of a basic rule:
"Mine is always your highest thought, your clearest word, your grandest feeling. Anything less is from another source.
"The Clearest Word - Those words which contain truth
"The Grandest Feeling - That feeling which you call love.
"Joy, truth and love - These three are interchangeable and one always leads to the other. It matters not in which order they are placed.
"Having with these guidelines determined which messages are Mine and which have come from another source. The only question remaining is whether My messages will be heeded. Most of My messages are not. Some, because they seem too good to be true. Others, because they seem too difficult to follow. Many, because they are simply misunderstood. Most, because they are not received.
"Leaders, Ministers, Rabbis, Priests, Books, The Bible - "Those are not authoritative sources. Listen to your feelings. Listen to your highest thoughts. Listen to your experience. Whenever any one of these differ from what you've been told by your teachers, or read in your books, forget the words. Words are the least reliable purveyor of truth."
