Good morning, Jesus! I have been so busy working on our business development and the taxes that I have not taken time to do this work; actually, this learning, this communion with you is a better way to describe it. It only seems like work because I have set deadlines for myself with the website.

Yes, Connie, it does seem like work to you now. I encourage you to get back to a daily practice of conversing with me. It will bring balance and stability to your life. It is almost as if your yoga practice has replaced this daily communion. Be very aware of how you spend your time. Do not be seduced by things or unholy pursuits. Your work is necessary for the planet and to help raise the human consciousness.
 
This is a time of great turmoil in many hearts and minds. There is a huge disparity of belief systems rocking Europe and the Middle East. Actually, it is happening everywhere because media exposure brings it right into your homes. So the hearts and minds of man are affected everywhere by the energy of a group – any group – believing they have the right to conquer another group.
 
Do not look outward and point your fingers at a jihadist group in the Middle East without looking inward into your own heart to see if you have the same hatred for them that they have for their enemy. Do not look over an ocean to place blame for the deaths of innocent people on religious fanatics without looking in your own cities to see the senseless deaths of innocent people in your inner city gang wars. Do not judge the behaviors of a people that do not understand democracy and freedom as you do because you have the privilege of living in a democratic country and you truly understand the power of freedom.
 
Do pray for mankind. Pray for Oneness. Pray for the Light to shine in the darkness of your own heart. Pray for the power of Love and decency to prevail. Pray for the courage to continue praying for your fellow man when you are horrified by their behaviors. Pray for Peace.
 
Peace begins in the heart of one man. You can be the person that chooses peace even if there is chaos around you. You can be the one that chooses compassion even if you are viewing heartless actions on the news. You can choose to suspend judgment even if you cannot understand the motives behind an attack. Choose peace for your heart.

Thank you for this teaching. I have become more peaceful during the writing of this. I feel the urgency in your request to get these teachings out in a public way. I continue to be your loyal student and sit by your feet.

You always have, Connie, you always have.
