Today’s message is about spiritual loneliness and isolation. What do I mean by this? Many of you who have embraced the power of the Spirit of Truth suffer silently because you have become aware of the higher knowledge of spirit values and realities that transcend the human institutions of religion and the accepted paradigms of society. Once the Spirit of Truth sets you free, you are free indeed, and therefore you are no longer the bond servant of the dead and static truths of religion, and neither do you conform to the influence of societal programming. For many, this can be a very lonely place.
By revelation and personal experience have you evolved into a new creature with a new awareness. Like a caterpillar who has changed into a butterfly, you no longer crawl slowly on the ground, but you soar high into the air far above your brothers and sisters who remain on the ground satisfied with the safety and security of dead truths. The sky is enormous, spacious, and empty as you flitter about in your new form, and you sometimes feel nostalgic for the days when you were safe in your cocoon. Use your new senses now to seek out the beauty and the sweet nectar of the flowers of the field and there will you find others like yourself who have embraced their transformation and have learned where to find the sweetest flowers.
You are no longer just a citizen of the earth, a race, or nation, but a cosmic citizen of the universe who is discovering, through faith, that there is a much larger reality to life that transcends the material world and the death of the physical body. You have been born again into the family of God and you have only just begun a journey of endless discovery, astonishing beauty, and sublime wonder in the experiences of eternal life. Even while you live in the flesh are you a part of this larger, neigh infinite family of progressing spirits—for you are one with us, who are seeking perfection, to find God and to become like Him.
Though your physical eyes only perceive a small spectrum of reality, you can now use your spiritual eyes to discern the truth, beauty, and goodness of this new reality that is not void of life, but teams with others personalities who have shed their cocoons and emerged into the beautiful forms that God has intended for them—the faith sons and daughters of the Most High. You are not alone my friends, for there are more butterflies than there are caterpillars in the Kingdom of Heaven.
Peace to you, The Circle of Seven
