--------------------------------------

954) Love is a great force for creation and salvation of one's well being. Love may be deemed temperamental if it is based on limited conditional demands by the will of another. True Love like all things that are of a wholesome and true nature. Takes development through the dedicated adoration of the lover. When hard work in relationship building is coupled with Love. Than the burden of the dutiful dedication becomes light and pleasant to carry for oneself. It is due to the factor of a joy that knows no bounds that offers the dedicated lover a sweet reprieve. No other creative force can offer so much for so little in its exchange of the sublime for the common, but extraordinary tenderness. Be still in such a truth and may it set you free in all manner of blessedness by the grace of the Divine. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


955) The grand legacy of God's children that are true to their own calling is irrefutable. That all the great prophets and the masters of each religious faith have offered this world true benevolence. Each master has been an agent of the Divine be it through the myriad era's of humanities greatest need. Many theologians may have determined that all the Holy works of God's true heirs as Ascended Masters are rendered in our collective past within antiquity. This is not so I tell you, our history is ripe with numerous declared and forgotten saintly men and woman in God's service. Be they prophets of their own day or unrecognized masters come in the name and authority of the Divine. Miracle workers no matter the age of humanity that have come forth with a ministry. Are a constant stream of the compassion of our creator God(dess). It is an unending pledge by the covenant of each generation that seeks such a renewed relationship with God. May we who worship in an earnest spirit of humility and thanksgiving remember this truth. Lest we forsake our dignity as souls of a living and dynamic God in creation. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.


956) We are never truly alone in Spirit. We may forget our place in this world. Yet we remain true to what is precious, just as God keeps his promises on our behalf. God walks with us and within us, where his "Holy Spirit" nurtures us. The Angelic host walks with us even if we may at times feel that we are crawling by our own hands and knees. The "Kingdom of God" walks with us not forgetting we are the "Kingdom of God" given form and substance within creation.

God, and all that is good and Holy doesn't just walk with humanity alone. God(dess) and the Divine walks with all sentient species in creation, all animals, all insects, all plants, all minerals and bacteria as an eternal vigilant companion. The stars and heavens of this universe and the next one to come shines brightest from the Love of God(dess). We are never alone in Spirit, we may feel alone if we walk away from the Divine by choice. Yet the Holy Spirit is with us in a gentle and steadfast manner of grace. Remember this eternal infinite love of God(dess) and you to shall inherit the calm that sets all of us free in peace. Amen. ---Ivan Pozo-Illas / Atrayo.
