Many of you are about to celebrate a holiday called Halloween in which you take great delight in dressing up. You regard one another’s costumes with a sense of wonder, appreciation, and even humor. The beautiful and the ugly, the sweet and the scary, suddenly become innocent masks for the human beings who exist beneath.
Can you fathom, dear ones, that everyone here upon your earth, is God’s light and love in a costume and wearing the mask of their personality? Just as your Halloween costumes can be sweet or scary, ugly or beautiful, so too the masks that human beings wear over their souls can be sweet or scary, beautiful or ugly according to your human standards, and yet they are all beautiful to us.
What if, instead of making one another wrong, and judging one another, you could look at each other, knowing you are all “Divine love” in a costume? It would change your entire perception of reality!
Can you imagine saying to yourself, “There is God’s love in the face of a person smiling at me across the grocery store. There is God’s love hidden away in the scrunched up face of an angry soul. There is God’s love hidden in that very sad looking person. There is God’s love working through a beautiful soul assisting another. Here is God’s love in a soul that forgets and feels the need to speak unkindly to me. Here is God’s love in a soul who remembers and is offering me support. They may remember or forget, but I know the truth!”
Children have this power of “innocent observation.” They regard all of life with curiosity, wonder, and awe. They marvel at the uniqueness of each individual and look at them with curiosity. Instead of taking an angry person personally, a child knows they deserve better treatment and simply wonders why this person is behaving in such a fashion.
What if you could regard people this way dear ones. Try it this week. Look at everyone as if they are Divine Love wearing a mask and embodying a personality they chose for their growth and education. Suddenly you know a secret… you’re all the same under the masks, and you’re all seeking love.
