The cupboards in my brain need to be restocked, so I thought I'd just share a few random quotes from Emmanuel's Book tonight. I wanted to put a link to the Emmanuel's Friends website but it came up as unsafe so I linked to Amazon.com again. I love this book. I was blessed to have a private session many years ago with Emmanuel and Pat Rodegast (who channels Emmanuel). I went to see her with a friend who I think of as "my almost twin brother." We met back when we were still reasonably young on (a real life in the flesh) line looking for holiday work at Macy's in NYC, got to talking and discovered that we were born in the same hospital only hours apart. How's that for a small, mysterious world? We used to meet for our birthday every year back when I lived in the city and still left my apartment. But anyway, here are three thoughts from Emmanuel for us to ponder.
Let your prayer be an ongoing renewalYou prayby touching the deepest part of youthat longs, that needs, that is.Let it speak in its own language,more often than not without words.The longing itselfis the prayer of life"I want to be with you again, God.I want to be Home."There is no how to prayer.It simply is.It is a part of the Oneness.It is a part of your coming Home.Do it whatever way you likePrayer is to assure youof your connection with Home,much as when you were childrenand you left for the day.There was that moment of panic --I'm sure you remember it --when you had to call homejust to be surethat it was still there.Prayer is like thatIt is calling Home.
***********One cannot surrender completelyto anything but God.All other surrender s symbolic.Surrender can be proclaimed as the most selfish actbecause it leads to total fulfillment.When man's will is aligned with God's willit is an effortless existencein which the wisdom within youis in a place of comfortand loosely held control.To know the presence of God's willyou need to listen to the many voicesthat live in you.You will find vices of fear,rage, contradiction, obstinacy,illusions of all sorts.When those voices become familiarthen the gentleness, the softness,warmth and Light of your inner wisdomcan the more easily be heard.It contrasts with the cacaphonyof those other voicesthat are superimposed upon the inner knowing,that is God's will.The final lesson for each soulis the total surrender to the will of Godmanifested in your own heart.**********The heart is an unerring compasswithin each one of you.The heart knows the soulbetter than the mind does.Unless your mind is in the serviceof the heartit becomes a warped and twisted master.The only path that is right for youis the one that is already designed within you.To find this pathyou have to hear your own heartThere simply is no other way.While the small mind, in its fear,is rigid and controlling,the deeper part of you will begin to whisperthe truth of your eternal safetyand your Oneness wtih God.So listen to your heart.This is where your Light isand your truth.
