Only God is Real. All that exists exists within Him, Who is eternal, infinite, and unconditional Love. There is nothing else. The suffering, the pain, the conflict, the confusion, the corruption, and the betrayals that surround and envelop you, although seemingly real, are only as real as your belief in them. To believe in them gives them energy, because to believe in them is to believe in the unreal, and that is how you built the illusion.
When small children get totally caught up in their games it can be very difficult for the adults – their parents, guardians, teachers, care-givers, or other authority figures – to bring them back from the imaginary reality that they have built in which to play in order for them to have lunch, supper, or get ready for bed. Well, you are even more strongly attached to the illusion than those children are to their games.
Remind yourselves of those games that children play, and the intensity with which they believe in them, and determine to withdraw your belief from your own insane games. You should never engage in or play any game that is in the least bit unloving. You chose to incarnate to release the residue of previous unloving lives, lives in which you had suffered hostility, abuse, betrayal, and defeat, or poured it forth on others, because on Earth, as humans, you have frequent opportunities to choose again and again to be loving in situations where, as humans, some form of defensive or attacking behavior might seem to be called for.
Anything that is unloving cannot leave the illusion. Reality, All That Exists, is Love. There is nothing else, so to return to Reality, to the Presence of God, you have to let go of all that is in opposition to Love, all that is not in harmony with It. All that opposes Love in any manner at all is very firmly anchored in the nightmare that illusion has become for so many.
The way to dissolve the illusion is to let go of any need to be right, to judge, to get even, to punish, to shame, and to destroy. Hatred embraces all of those “needs” and is therefore very enslaving, retaining you in the illusion so that you can practice satisfying those needs. However, if you do that, all you succeed in doing is causing yourselves pain that can easily intensify into severe hatred. It is a closed loop of suffering after suffering with no way out.
