From This Day Forward, You are a Student of Love
Teacher: Teacher Ophelius
The message for today is about self-worth, and self-love. One of the most limiting beliefs there are on your world today is the belief that you are somehow not worthy or not good enough to be accepted by God because of some failure in your past or because someone told you the lie that you weren’t good enough, or smart enough to achieve anything of importance in your life. How many of you as adults are walking “wounded” and carrying around these huge burdens of guilt and hurt from your past or from childhood that has left a deep mark on your psyche that prevents you from moving forward toward some hidden desire to become your “ideal self?”
Let us first put some things in perspective. You are a child of God. You were created to be a co-creative partner with God—to share your life experiences with God and you have been given the opportunity to live eternally if you so choose to continue in this co-creative partnership with God. You have been given free will to create the life you want to have while you are here in this world. This life is an “opportunity” to explore and to learn how to love—to experience love in all the varying degrees as it is interpreted by the fallible human form—to seek for the understanding of higher more pure forms of love with less conditions and by doing so you can become more like your co-creative partner—God.
Now, understanding what I just said, how is it that you are not good enough, or smart enough, or “holy” enough to be accepted by God or to achieve anything in life you desire to be or do? Who told you this lie that you are not worthy? It is time to let those burdens you carry go and to start anew. From this day forward you are a student of LOVE and you are enrolled in the University of Love and there are many classrooms in this school and many teachers. Look around the class you are in now—do you belong with the students there? Are they also on the path seeking these higher more pure forms of love? Are some of the students there disruptive to you? Perhaps you need to move your seat away from those who distract you and prevent you from hearing the Teacher? Move to the front of the class where you can clearly see the chalk board and hear the Teacher’s instruction. Sit with those who can help you most.
As a child, you quickly understood the classroom dynamics, yet as adults, some of you still sit in the back of the class with the disruptive, love starved, ego driven students who are intent on seeing you fail—those who are also stuck in the quagmires of doubt, hurt, pain, blame, and with twisted interpretations of what love is because they refuse to study. Move away from them and come into the light! Your time on earth is only a short season—make the most of it—raise your hand and ask the Teacher to explain the love lesson again, then go out into the world and apply it. God wants you to graduate with Highest Honors and the only prerequisite to this higher learning is to “allow” His love to flow through you (as a co-creative partner).
Within you lives the Greatest Teacher with the highest degree in Love—the Indwelling Spirit of God. With credentials like that, how can anyone tell you that you are not good enough? If you still hear this, it is probably coming from the back of the class.
Peace to you,
The Circle of Seven
