All that is, is good and devours all that IS NOT! Reality is not what you see, taste, feel, hear, and smell; this is but a shadow of the real, created by the real and reliant upon it. This shadow realm is your playground; it is a realm of play-doh and washable markers, a realm of creativity and imagination, of coloring books and masterpieces, of building blocks and architecture, of time and space. You, who are, get to create with nothing and mold with something; sculptors of that which is and creators of that which will be. You, who are, scribbled on the pages of your Eden and called it a curse, questioning your reality, your union with the “I AM”, turned your playground into a prison, your satisfaction into wanting, your pleasure into grief. Believing yourself to be a part of creation, you gave yourself to its wrath; surrendering your paintbrush, clay and canvas, you became a victim of your Eden, a mere color on the canvas, nothing but dirt. Becoming a part of that which is but is not, you yielded yourself to law, sin and death; the thing that you feared came upon you. But remember, you who are, all that is, is good and devours all that IS NOT. All that has not come from within, from the identity of “I AM”; all that is not at REST, IS NOT and that which IS NOT is that which preceded from the dark corners of the prison that was once a playground, it is but a figment of the deceived imagination and was realized as nothing when He Who is lit up our world. And the Light came into the world, devouring that which IS NOT and all that is left is “I AM”!
That which is not of “I AM” has no life and IS NOT; its existence comes solely from your belief in it, for you are its creator! But the “I AM” is Life, the source and sustainer of all that is and all that will be. You, who are, were born of “I AM”, live in Him and find your very being in Him. Can that which IS NOT exist in “I AM”? Can sickness exist in a healthy body or sin in one who is Holy; can death exist in life or darkness in light? No, of course not…for the illusion, that which IS NOT, is destroyed by the revelation of that which is.... “I AM”. You, who are, do not try to heal the sick or raise the dead, instead realize the Truth, there is no sickness or death! They are but mere manifestations of your belief in the lie that you are not one with “I AM”.
I hear this question looming in the air, what of this playground, this realm of time and space? This playground is that which was created in the Beginning, not at the beginning, but in the Beginning! “I AM” fills everything everywhere with Himself and everything was created in the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End. Creation was not the beginning of time and space but the revealing of the Eternal “I AM” and the cosmic parade of His Children! Placed in the garden of pleasure, a playground of creative wonder, we were given creation to enjoy, explore, mold and shape according to the Divine will within. Space is simply the area in which creation was placed and in which we create. Time is but a figment of the imagination, a creation of man to number his days and a marker of the when. And what of this “when”, it is only valuable to those who try to live in the illusion called past, who try to learn from those who have been and what once was. Time is a seed with the potential to disrupt the present and to create within it. It is a part of that which is but is not. It is enjoyed by those who are, and torments those who are not. It is pure bondage to those who look to it for wisdom and guidance and a playground of visitation to those who know “I AM”. For “I AM” is not a God of the dead but of the living and He recognizes death, not as an end, but as a beginning for those who are not, and those who are will never taste it! Time and space is an extravagant coloring book for us to enjoy. Most cannot enjoy coloring the page of now because they are living in a page, a moment that “is not”, the pages of past define them and the pages of the future cause them to fear. But no matter how bad you colored outside the lines of the pages past, they do not and cannot define you! And “I AM” still finds them beautiful, still sees them for the masterpieces they are. And what of the future pages that are but are not. These pages bring so much fear and anxiety to the man who wishes to control that which “is not”; who chooses to see the future through a lens of the past. To this man, there is no now to enjoy, for the past defines him and the future robs him of that which is. Come with me, you who are, you who recognize this moment as all that is; let us turn the pages of this great coloring book of time and space, let us discover together what it truly is. It is a playground of joy and imagination, of ecstasy and delight. There is not a single color you need at this moment that you do not have; if you are in want or in need of more colors, you have not yet embraced the moment, you have not yet realized “I AM”. For in “I AM” is wantlessness, perfect satisfaction, wild joy, absolute ecstasy, and in Him you have all that you desire; in Him you can experience the pages of past, enjoy the page or present and create the page of tomorrow. And this is effortless, as you embrace the moment and enjoy “I AM”!
