“I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage .” (Dt . 5:6)
August 6, 2000:
Dearest sweetest Papa:
Happy feast day! On this day I consecrate myself to You, Father. Completely
and with my total fiat. I also consecrate my entire family.
Tonight I cannot sleep. I lay in bed and I saw your throne of stone, but only
the right arm of it, and somehow I knew that this symbolizes a “lion.” Then
the Decalogue flooded into my mind and I saw it not as “Thou not’s,” but as
loving guidelines, very simple, and I knew I would have to think of them in
a different way so that they made sense in the world today. Then I realized
that Jesus was “communication” personified, His words and actions. He was
Your “communication technology,” explaining and showing us what You
had tried to show us so many times before—but we just didn’t get it. This
was a powerful epiphany for me. Papa, You are so good. I love You so much.
Happy feast day, Father. I pledge my undying love to You always.
And the Decalogue—that was communication—Your Word—on the
outside. But it had to be written on our hearts, internalized—new software.
What if Your Spirit is the smallest particle in the universe, and it vibrates
and really does come through us and in us in a material way if our souls are
disposed, singing, vibrating at a divine frequency? This is the Spirit that
was sent to us 2,000 years ago. The fruits are love—the evidence is love of
God and each other.
The attitude of “me, me, me” cuts us off from You, the whole. We become
tight, atrophied, restricted, constricted, not “open” to Your Spirit of
harmonious love. It has something, I think, to do with our mind, will,
disposition, attitude—our surrender, regardless of “mood.” Perhaps it
affects our soul, as yet unseen to the human eye, but in the realm of Your
Spirit it is visible. Perhaps the realm of Your Spirit is “refined” and the realm
of the world is “course.” I know I certainly don’t clearly understand this
concept yet. But I feel on this feast day, Father, that I am a little closer to
understanding. Light, energy, particles, waves, vibrations, brains, bodies,
souls. We, too, are (in a sense) communication technology for God in this
world. Thank You, Father, for helping me understand better.
Dt 15:13-15—“And when thou sendest him out free, though shalt not let him go
away empty: But shalt give him for his way out of thy flocks, and out of thy barn-
floor, and thy winepress, wherewith the Lord thy God shall bless thee. Remember
that thou also wast a bondservant in the land of Egypt, and the Lord thy God made
thee free, and therefore I now command thee this.”
