So long as you are on Earth, you are a human being. It is part of you and not to be ignored. Consider the human part of you as a pet you keep. You take good care of your pet. You feed it and exercise it. You pay attention to your pet, and you love it.
There is an emphasis here in Heavenletters on the Divine. Understandably because the world emphasis has perhaps not been enough on the Divine. Therefore, I emphasize the direction of the Divine. Of course, I do, for here is where your happiness comes from.
Still, there is happiness in the human side of you that is not to be denied. Enjoy the human pleasures. Enjoy everything you do, and enjoy more. If you are an artist, enjoy art. If you are a writer, enjoy writing. If you are a chef, enjoy preparing delicious feasts.
Enjoy eating. Enjoy preparing food. Enjoy work, and enjoy play. In fact I will tell to enjoy the human side more.
I have said it before, and I’ll say it again:
Who enjoyed life more than the laughing Buddha?
Who enjoys life more than the young child?
And parents receive joy from their children’s joy. The ultimate aim of parents is to allow and encourage the happiness of their children. And this is how parents reap joy.
And so treat the human side of yourself as your child, and encourage it in the way to grow. The way to grow is through joy, for joy incurs joy. Joy is a great lesson in living life. It is the most direct speediest way to live life.
One joy leads to another.
Even on the side of your Divinity, take it not so seriously. Love the Divinity in your life as well. Feed it, groom it, and know you don’t have to go overboard. You don’t have to prove anything. Embracing the Divine side of a human being is also joy. Joy, not effort, is the way to go. Ease, not effort, is the way to grow. Turn your face to Me. Say, “Hi, God!” Fol de rol is not better than a simple embrace, a nod, a smile, a turning to Me.
Have you known Me to exert Myself and struggle and so forth? I enjoy. I enjoy calling you to Me. I don’t get impatient. I don’t fear time because I know Infinity and Eternity. The fact is that you know Infinity and Eternity as well, yet you stamp URGENT on so much. I stamp URGENT not at all.
In My Heaven, there is no urgency. There is joy. The Divine is great joy. It is not hard work. Struggle is not a word in Heaven’s vocabulary. I would like to request that you toss the word struggle away and substitute joy. Struggle is a poor substitute, so I ask you to come back to the preferred word which is joy. In fact, you can call Me Joy. You can call Me Joy to the World. Perhaps you had thought of Me as the Taskmaster. I am a Master of Joy. Of course, I didn’t have to master joy. It was always Mine, and joy has always been waiting for you.
You are My joy. You are not My struggle.
Now, after all this discussion today, let Me rephrase: Divinity is housed within the Human. The meeting place of the human and the Divine is in your heart. I live in your heart. The human is a high expression of the Divine on Earth. Earth is not a low place, for you remember space does not exist. Heaven is pictured as very High Up, yet the Divine is as much you as the Human. What might be called a High Human is Divine, and, yet, every human is Divine. They work together.
And so, you are One, and you are One with Me, and I, One with you. There is no two that will meet. There is One Who is meeting now.
