NTI 3 John
(v 1)To My one Self, Love, in truth.
(v 2 - 4) Our one mind is awakening, and you are joining with Me in the awakened state of our mind. For as you look on your brothers, you realize now that they are not brothers, but an extension of your Self. There is no greater joy than this. There is no greater joy than realizing our oneness and accepting it, for this is what it means to embrace. In your acceptance, you embrace. As you embrace, you know the process of expansion.
(v 5 - 8) To you, there are no strangers. Although they may seem to be strangers, because you do not know their look or cannot call their name, you know who they are, and so you help them. This is the knowledge Jesus pointed to when he said, "Whatever you do to the least of my brethren, you do to me." Now you understand that whatever you do to your brother, you also do to yourself. And so it has become your choice to choose love.
(v 9, 10) The part of the mind that is not welcoming comes to your attention, but now you are able to see it and know it is not you. You can turn away from unwelcoming thoughts, because they are not the thoughts you desire. In your turning away, they fade from the desire of the mind.
(v 11, 12) Witnesses to your mind come into your awareness because the witnesses are you. Look on their faces and listen to what they say now. They speak of love, because Love is what you have accepted as you. They speak of peace and gratitude, because peace and gratitude is that which you know.
(v 13,14) Turn within, and further the development of your awareness through your focus and attention. Dismiss that which is false, and accept that which is true. In the focusing of the mind, witnesses shall step forth to show you what it is that you do. But do not focus on the witnesses. Stay well within the mind. Greet the friends that come to you by Name within the Heart. Remember that each one is but a reflection of the totality of your Self. Love them for what they are. Amen.
