A soul striving with much effort to fulfill the Plan of God and to become better was afflicted feeling that, in spite of its efforts, it did not know how to love and could not manage to become better, which it so aspired for.
In a moment of prayer, it questioned God and asked Him: "Lord, I make such an effort to love more and to become better, and I feel that I do not move from where I am and that I am far away from the perfection of Your Love and the likeness to You. Where is that which you say dwells within us?"
And the Lord responded, also with a question, saying: - "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 ready 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 Me more and your human limitations less. Your life will speak about Me, and those who find you will find Me.
It is this way, little soul, that you will achieve perfection: when I can be perfect within you.
This is a long, daily path in which, each day you must seek My Heart more, and make space within yourself. But if your attention is upon you becoming better and that your love becomes greater and more perfect, then you will always be frustrated and not find peace."
I tell you this story so that you may know in which direction you must 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.
