II - Love God and, Thus, Find Peace
A soul that strived very much to fulfill the Plan of God and to become better was afflicted for feeling that, in spite of their efforts, they did not know how to love and could not manage to become better, as they so aspired to do.
In a moment of prayer, the soul questioned God: "Lord, I make such an effort to love more and become better, and I feel that I am at a standstill and far away from the perfection of Your Love and likeness with You. Where is that which you say dwells within us?"
And responding also with a question, the Lord said: "Little soul, do you perhaps seek Me, you or the world more? Is your attention upon building your own consciousness, in pleasing others or in loving Me with all your heart and all your being?
Understand that it is I Who must love through you, and so that you may achieve the revelation of this profound union with Me, you must seek Me more than yourself. You must keep your attention focused on My Spirit, your heart must be avalaible in My Presence and, before anything else, you must build your spiritual and essential link with Me. In this way, it will be Me loving within you, and you will feel better because you will feel more of Me and less of your human limitations. Your life will speak about Me, and those who encounter you will encounter Me.
This is how you will achieve perfection, little soul: when I can be perfect within you.
This is a long daily path in which you seek My Heart every day and grant Me a space within yourself ever more. But if your attention is upon you becoming better, and your love becoming greater and more perfect, then you will always be frustrated and not find peace."
I tell you this story so that you may know where to focus your efforts so that your diligence may be in loving God, knowing Him and expressing Him more each day. In this way, you will find peace.
You have My blessing for this.
