Message XLVII – Living With Faith and Joy

Teacher: The Teacher of Peace

T/R: Fátima Spanó

Those who are here must ponder their feelings and how they conduct their lives. As it has already been stated, the example is necessary and this example can only be given when you really feel inside yourselves the joy of living and of having faith. Have you already pondered the meaning of living joyfully? Have you already allowed yourselves to be happy for a full day, to be joyful for 24 hours? Have you already pondered what it means to have faith? Where does your faith stem from? How do you feel within your heart?

In these days when humanity and all the planet are going through transformation, what do you think about it? How do you act when you listen to the news and face all these events? Are you able to transmit joy and faith in spite of that? If you do so, then you are on the right track; but if you allow yourselves to be saddened and to doubt that the best is coming, if you fear for tomorrow, then you must review your feelings and pay more attention to the words being transmitted to you by the beings of light who are here in this moment, rendering a service of love.

Faith and joy are conquered every day, every hour, or rather every minute. Your example is the most important. Show your neighbors that there is only one true love; that words must come from the heart and not from reason, and that all this transformation will bring more opportunities for humanity to review their values, concepts and prejudices deeply rooted along time… Show that joy is not a gift given to you in special, but that it can be cultivated every moment through the greater love for God and mainly that, when you love God above all things, faith becomes yourself. That is, you and God become one and nothing else will sadden you, because faith is the real internal assurance, it is the belief that you are guided by a greater intelligence and only that intelligence propels your life. This is the greatest example you can give to your neighbor. When you have faith and joy of living, you become a part of this greater existence. Do not give up before the first or second difficulty: persist always.

Everyone can have a recurrence; you are not perfect yet. You are on planet Earth and making mistakes is still a part of your lives on this plane. Recurrences will come, but if you pay attention to the difference between being happy with faith and living sad with fear, it will be every day more difficult for you to indulge in these inferior feelings. Think about this. Observe your feelings, observe your bodies, your health, how you live. Observe how is the life of your kin, of your friends. See how is the joy of their hearts and ask yourselves: how do you want to live? What do you want to teach your children? What example do you give to your families and neighbors?

Do think. Think much. Be sincere with yourselves. Nobody will penetrate your thoughts, nobody will know what is your truth, your mistakes. Do not be ashamed of yourselves; you are learning and changing definitely depends only on you.

May the blessings of God Almighty be always with you…

The Teacher of Peace
