Michael: "There are times when you may feel
quite alone, my children, however this is not in any way a reality.
It is merely a feeling that you can experience, and your feelings
are not always based on facts. In truth, you are never alone, for
have I not told you that I will never leave you, nor forsake you.
They are your feelings of alienation, and these feelings are
"You may often feel separated from my love, and from the Fathers
love, because of guilt. And yet you have neither disappointed our
Father, nor have you let me down in any way. Throughout your lives
you may frequently disappoint yourselves, and then you tend to withdraw
from Him, whilst He will never abandon you.
"And here is a lesson to be learned about the Fathers Love;
His Love is not dependant on certain conditions. The Father is not
a conditional lover as is so much the tendency of mankind, and His
love is not dependant on whether you are good or bad. It is everlasting.
"There is in the earthly folklore a mythical character, who perpetuates
the concept of conditional love by reward and punishment entirely,
and many of you have in your minds created a god who is fashioned
after this mythical character, but the Father does not keep lists
of His children, dividing them by their goodness or by
their badness. That, too, has become a great fabrication
that needs to be exposed, for our Father is Love, and His Love
is not restricted in any way by your achieving a state of grace. Yes,
do learn this lesson well.
"As difficult as it is for you to learn and fully comprehend
that the Father is not a conditional lover, so it is for you to learn
to love unconditionally. From early childhood you have been rewarded
for good and punished for error, and this teaches conditional loving.
And you take this teaching into every area of your lifes experiences.
It has taught you to reward and punish your children and others in
like manner, and if anyone displeases you, you simply withdraw your
love, and this process is repeated again and again. Now we begin to
stop this cycle with understanding.
"The Father simply loves you, and when you fail at your lessons
He does not stop loving you. He never withholds His Perfect Love,
not even for an instant. You will learn to love; as He would have
you love. This is by far the most difficult of all the lessons in
our curriculum. You cannot learn this lesson in one day, but you can
begin by simply understanding. Begin by trusting me with this great
truth: The Father loves you not because of what you say or do, but
because of Who He is. He is Love, and His Love is unconditional."
Note: The mythical character is Saint Nicolas.
