Now, children, know that in this moment He stands near, so that you can feel His presence. If there be one thing that we might express in this moment that might open you to a greater truth within you, it would be this: there is a tendency among you to understand this or that through the intellect, or through finding and using methods, and techniques, and purposes. There is a tendency among you to reject reverence, piety, holiness, sanctification of the body -- things that you think of as superstition and reverence in worship.
Understand, children, that there is a God so Holy that you must transcend all that is physical to stand in His presence. So, begin doing so. Begin respecting your physical body as a temple of the Holy Spirit, so sacred, so sanctified, that upon entering the chapel that you have prepared for worship, you would set aside the world and enter there with reverence -- such holiness that the character of the place where you worship would be changed, the nature of the vibrations would be different.
You would then enter into worship naturally without a word being spoken. It would not be a channel, nor a minister, who would bring His presence, but it would exist within you.
There is a God so Holy that your body in its natural state cannot stand Its presence. It is not only within you, but it surrounds all that is in this universe. The universe is alive with the Presence of God. Then, open yourself to it and see how Holy God is. Then, establish that holiest place within you, the Holy of Holies, that He might enter, that you might worship there.
Become aware that this Holy God has been made a plaything by those who call themselves psychics, spiritual teachers, advisors -- those who would apply laws in this and that discipline and would attempt to understand intellectually. Let these become humble, and bow the knee, and prostrate the self before that most Holy God, and remove the shoes -- for they stand on Holy ground.
Understand how Holy is the Creator. Make it not light or simple, but give way to His Holiness by dedicating yourself and all that is. Respect your bodies, respect His temple, respect the place of worship, the chapel that you set aside, and make it a holy place, so that all who enter there would feel His vibration, His holiness, and would begin naturally to worship just from entering such presences.
So often, there have come these who are assembled at this moment on inner planes. They bless this place. They grace it with their presence. And they would seek to abide there always, as they have been commanded to do. And so they do. Their presence is real, and felt and known when you recognize it. How would you recognize it but to make yourself sensitive to it -- open to such presences so that you may know, and feel, and touch, and communicate.
Then, give yourself often to worship in such a manner. Make it not light, make it not a
simple exercise, make it not small through habit. Make it greater each time you come to
worship, and less of earth would be known, less of the physical, more of the spiritual --
so that you would transcend this plane. Often, you would simply leave your temple behind
and walk with Him in the clouds. And He would take you by the hand and walk with you. Has
He not said, I stand at the door and knock. If any man hear my voice, and open the
door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with
He is not so far off -- not so far off. He would walk with thee. Open to His presence for He is here.
