Passage From This Life To The Next

God said to His faithful Gabrielle, toward the end of her life:  "You are worried about the passage from this life to the next?...

Don't be afraid of losing your brief life on earth for the eternal Meeting with the Beloved.  And since I'll be there with you, what a moment of faith, hope and love!  Try to take this approach... You are with your Father... You belong to God's family...

Lose yourself in Me.  Surrender yourself.  Fade out of your own thoughts.  Enter into My eternal Being.  Live and move and have your being in Me.

I never find you near enough to Me.  My Word within you has never spoken enough.  I am always 'thirsty'.  You are thinking,  'It's difficult to satisfy Him.'   But believe that a very little effort, the least gesture of yours, delights Me.  It's like the joy of a mother when her little one expresses himself in a new way.

The unfolding of My love in you is My personal happiness; I'm waiting for it.  Everything that affects you touches Me personally.  My friends, you are part of Me and I, your Christ, am part of you.  Then why should I alone desire this close union?  Don't you also desire it?  You see, it's quite distressing for a friend to have to say,  'Love Me.  Think about Me.  Serve My cause (Love).  Give Me your life.'   Don't you think that the one who loves would prefer to have the other read his sentiments?  And when this does happen, he is so deeply touched that the ardent soul would be filled with joy could it but comprehend.

Which of you will give Me the joy of being invited to your earthly pilgrimage?  Who will say to Me at the end of the road,  'I should like to live again because of You and yet I find it sweet to die for You.' "   (nearing the end of this book)

The source of all goodness and wisdom is God, and this particular message was conveyed through:  He and I, revelations from God to Gabrielle Bossis, translated by Evelyn Brown, p.252-8  (Recommend Bible as primary source and these teachings as supplemental)
