The LoveKeeper

When Simon was bullied into carrying my cross that day,you don't know the relief I felt! I hadn't eaten for some time, therefore I felt weak. Not only physically, but emotionally and spiritually weak.
I knew what was ahead of me, to be honest, I felt afraid, as anyone would, {given my circumstances.} My feet felt like lead, the heat was merciless. I had a thirst on me that no amount of water would suffice.
I picked up on the sense of the crowd. Through their jeers, spit and curses, I sensed their longing for real love and compassion in their lives. I also picked up from the soldiers, their sadistic natures, yet, they were only following orders. These same men would return to their homes tonight and share their evening meal with their loved ones.
I then saw my Mother. Oh, how I wished to obliterate the pain she was feeling!
The expression on her face was heart breaking. Her tears, openly flowing on her beautiful face was enough to move me to ask one of my beloveds to mind her for me.

I would have given anything to shelter her from what she was about to experience.
My cross was dropped to the floor. A cloud of dust met the air from the weight of the wood.
I was thrown onto it and then felt the excrutiating pain of the first nail that met my flesh. It sent a searing pain up my arm,shoulder and chest. I thought I was going to be sick. Fortunately, there was nothing in my stomach. Then the next hand, again the pain pounded my flesh.
Finally, the nail pierced my feet and I think they broke every bone in my feet. The torture was indescribable. But the worst was yet to come.
The soldiers began to hoist my cross. Up, up, up it went, jarring me from moment to moment, each shudder created so much pain to my being that I thought I would pass out. Someone offered me a sedative on a sponge, but I refused their kindness, I wanted to remain aware of my surroundings.
I hung there for what seemed like, to me, an eternity, I had one man on my left, another on my right, who were also to be crucified.
One guy kept on and on at me, if I were the true God, why not end our suffering? The other guy was remorseful for his crimes.
To this guy, I told him we will meet in the after-life.
To make matters worse, a soldier climbed up on my cross and sank a crown of thorns in my head!
Blood seeped from my wounds, down my hair, face, neck, eyes.
I had never felt so alone, as they called me the King of the Jews.
My Father could not look at me anymore. This is when I called out to Him;
'Abba, why hast thou forsaken me?"
I knew I was born to die. I knew what my purpose was-to bring love to humanity.
Love is just a four letter word, but should you encompass the meaning INSIDE the word, you will find;
respect, honour, grace,kindness,patience, equality,balance,goodness and wholeness. Yes, I came to earth to bring wholeness.
You were not created, {born} perfect. Your birth goal is to BECOME perfect. I came to remind you of this. Of course I knew through man's ignorance that he would use violence! Violence is perpetrated through fear. Fear means lack of understanding. Lack of understanding {ignorance} threatens man's sense of power {ego}.
Therefore, man will kill anyone who threatens his sense of power.

I understood man, perfectly. This is why I cried out from the cross;
'Father, forgive them for they know not what they do"

Shortly afterwards, I took my last, physical breath. Immediately, I was in the presence of my Father. Free of pain,He held me in spirit.

Because love knows no boundaries, my beloved on earth were grieving for me. To prove to them the power of love, I decided to visit them. Remember I bared my soul whilst in the physical. You call it transfiguration. You can also do this yourselves. Pray steadfastly, go into deep meditation. Believe me when I say love knows NO boundaries.

Upon my return, my beloved deeply grieved. They thought of me as their mentor, therefore, my death meant the end of all I had instructed.
Can you imagine burying your loved one one day and the next day seeing them whole? Would you faint? Possibly you would, YET, I DID THIS.
Thomas had a very hard time when he met me. He had to touch me to realize I was real. My other friends had watched me die, but when they saw me and heard my voice, it took a while for their reality to ebb and my reality to flow.
You see, I am at peace now, the same peace I leave with you. Don't be afraid of anything, even your own physical death, as this is a transition into something far more beautiful than you have ever imagined. Never worry about tomorrow, as all of your tomorrows are well taken care of.
Never fear to love, for I am the SOURCE of your love. For always, give thanks for the small details in your life. Remember, I hear and see everything.Your Ancestors have been given charge over you.
Talk to me every day. Involve, include me in all your decisions.
As long as we maintain our relationship, nothing else matters. Don't look outside yourself for Counsel.I live within you, so believe and trust your SELF.We can work together in all things. This is the love I brought to you, this is why I died for you.
We are the light-keepers, meaning we are the love-keepers. Keep our love-light shining. I am with you always.

Your Brother,
