I've laid down with love and come out with lies.
What's it all worth only the heart can measure,
It's not what's in the mirror but what's left inside.”
- From ‘Sometimes It's A Bitch,’ sung by Stevie Nicks, written by Jon Bon Jovi and Billy Falcon, from the album Timespace, 1991).

The moment for feeling disappointed is over. You have moved into the New Age and its benefits will become increasingly apparent as the year progresses. You have all done an amazing job in bringing it in, and you are greatly honored for that. The divine energy field enveloping the planet and all the life forms she supports is now much more intense and effective than ever before in your human history because your New Age allows it to be so. The more aware and awake you become the greater the energy you can carry and use for the greater good of all.
Humanity is most definitely moving forwards spiritually after eons of stagnation and hopelessness that the constant conflicts and disagreements among you encouraged. When you are in conflict you are coming from ego, from a sense of isolation, abandonment, and fear, and your ego wants to put that to rights by fighting the enemy, whoever or whatever it may be, and destroying it. Millions of egos fighting for supremacy do not provide an environment in which love, compassion, acceptance, respect, or healing of one another can grow and flourish.
With humanity’s rapidly increasing desire for all on the planet to live in harmony, even if only to avoid further destructive wars, the way to enormous spiritual growth has opened up because a desire to live harmoniously with others allows love’s influence to expand and become a major aspect of all human relationships. This growth in the influence and power of love in every individual who desires it has become self-sustaining, and consequently you will see enormous changes occurring all across the world as the New Age becomes ever more firmly established in the hearts of those who would choose peace instead of conflict.
The New Age is an aspect of yourselves, of each individual, that shows itself as love, respect, and compassion for all with whom you interact, and it leads unerringly to peaceful and harmonious exchanges of ideas that will bring an end to the suffering and deprivation that has been endemic on Earth for eons. And as a result trust among you will grow, be honored, and become the norm, just as it should.
You cannot live divided, judging others as worse than or better than. You tried it for eons and it most definitely did not work. Now, with the New Age firmly established, along with all the amazing energies it has brought, you can develop societies that creatively work together for the good of all on your beautiful planet. A one-size-fits-all approach is not the way forwards. Your new abilities to communicate very rapidly with anyone anywhere in the world have demonstrated to you very powerfully that cooperation works and can bring diverse groups together to solve issues that could not be solved alone – open-source computer applications is a wonderful example of this kind of cooperation in action – and that sort of enthusiastic and friendly cooperation is set to increase. There is an incredibly bright future ahead of you, just waiting for you to grasp it and run with it for the satisfaction and delight of all of humanity.
Now is the time to release any sense of anger, disappointment, or resentment that you may have experienced since the New Age arrived, and to engage with it completely by opening yourselves fully in love to all your brothers and sisters, especially those whom you believe have offended you or taken advantage of you. True forgiveness occurs when it is offered instead of blame or judgment, whatever the situation. No one can honestly say that they have never caused offense to another (justification for doing so has no place here!), but holding on to the resentment it causes and dwelling on it is like filling yourselves with corrosive liquids that will destroy you. Forgive, thrive, and truly enjoy the gift of life so lovingly bestowed on you by your Father as you move fully and joyously into this New Age for which you have been yearning.
With so very much love, Saul.
