I was remarking to Mum about the sudden spate of calamities around the world–earthquake and typhoon in the Philippines, tornadoes in the US, oranged-sized hailstones in Australia, fires here at home, recent murder of a young girl from my alma mater, etc.
And she said, “Don’t worry, Joy. Pray, pray, pray. Your prayers are very effective, you know.” (Thank you for your faith in me, Mum!)
Anyway, God says prayers of gratitude are the most powerful.
I know it may seem weird to be thankful for disasters, calamities and murders and all that.
God, I know that EVERYTHING HAS A PURPOSE. Everything that is happening in the world right now has a purpose. But I am having a hard time trying to be thankful for people’s lives turned upside down and their loved ones dying as consequences of these natural disasters. Especially for those who were already suffering before because of poverty. The calamities have devastated them so much to the point where they have NOTHING. As in zero. What kind of future will they have?! Some of the victims have been traumatized mentally. How can I be thankful for that?!
My child, you already know the reason why these calamities are happening. In order for everyone to realize that what affects one country will affect the other. You Are All One. We Are All One. These calamities are wake-up calls for your souls. The souls of this realm have been in deep sleep for far too long. And do not perceive that these calamities are the work of another Being. Some have come to the assumption that these are punishments for the “bad” seeds of the world. And might I ask who is this Being that is getting blamed for all this?
Me. I Am joy. Why would I cause you to suffer? Suffer in itself is an illusion. Suffering is the perception or judgement of the mind with regards to a certain situation. Take the typhoon for example.
Okay. Please don’t tell me those victims are not suffering. It breaks my heart to see women crying because their children are hungry and have no proper place to sleep and live. You do not call that suffering? That is definitely not a joy ride.
Here’s a question—do you think they will be in that situation forever?
Honestly? Some of them. Yes.
Okay. So for some of them, how long do you think they will suffer?
I say forever.
Forever until the day they die, yes?
That isn’t very long now, is it?
What? How can You take it so lightly that they will suffer for the rest of their lives.
Okay. Let’s say humans do not die.
What do You mean?
That your soul will be encased in your physical body forever. As in there is no such thing as death.
You’re talking nonsense, God.
Okay. Fine. Humans do not die. Now what?
Humans do not die and they are suffering and suffering and suffering over and over and over and over—
Okay. Okay. I get the picture. Now that would be hell. That would be true-blue suffering.
That is why I have given you the gift of death. In order for you to be relieved of the experiences of this realm. In order for you to re-energize yourself whenever you return to Me. To the realm of the absolute. It is your choice whether you want to come back to the world in order for you to experience who you really are over and over again.
But what about those who survived and are suffering now? As in they have no home, no money, no jobs, nothing.
So are they just going to sit around and die a slow death?
No! Of course not!
No. They will either push themselves up on their own two feet with or without the help of others. Most likely they will be helped by others like what is happening now in terms of relief goods and medical aid and what not.
But that’s temporary. It won’t last very long. What about the future?
Why are you thinking about the future when they can hardly survive NOW? Besides, do you think the government and its leaders will turn their backs on them and leave them to fend for themselves after this devastating calamity? I tell you, right now there are brains clicking over time trying to figure out how best to get these victims back on their feet. Like I said, my child, this is a wake-up call. These people and the generations before them have been living in poverty for too long. Let us just say, it is time to clean the slate. Start over. Rebuild. Re-energize these people’s lives. Has anyone ever noticed these people living their quiet impoverished lives before this disaster? How many people in the world knew these places even existed? I tell you, not many. But now look at what has happened. Because of this calamity these impoverished people’s pleas have been heard far and wide. The world has now woken up to the plight of these people. People all over the world are stepping all over themselves just to be able to contribute or to aid in any way they can. If that isn’t Oneness then I do not know what is. I Am very pleased with the response of all souls to this calamity. Now, let’s get back to your question of how to be grateful for the chaos that is happening now.
Yeah. Now, I have an idea how to pray for all this.
Well then, go ahead.
GOD, I THANK YOU FOR THE WAKE-UP CALLS THAT WE HAVE BEEN RECEIVING BECAUSE THEY HAVE AWAKENED OUR SOULS TO OUR ONENESS. WE LOVE ONE ANOTHER THEREFORE WE CARE FOR EACH OTHER. THE DEATHS OF LOVED ONES ARE THE SOULS’ WAY OF RELEASING THEMSELVES FROM THE ILLUSION OF THEIR PHYSICAL BODIES AND OF THIS WORLD IN ORDER FOR THEM TO FULFILL THEIR AGENDAS IN THIS REALM. THEREAFTER THEIR TRIUMPHANT RETURN TO THE REALM OF THE ABSOLUTE. I THANK YOU FOR THE SOULS WHO HAVE AND ARE EXPERIENCING THEIR DIVINITY OF EMPATHY, GENEROSITY, FAITH, ETC., IN ORDER TO HELP THE VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES COPE WITH THIS WAKE-UP CALL. I THANK YOU THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN US HOPE AND FAITH AS WAYS OF UPLIFTING OURSELVES THROUGH ANY TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS WE FACE IN THIS REALM. I THANK YOU THAT SOULS WILL SEE THESE WAKE UP CALLS AS OPPORTUNITIES TO RENEW THEMSELVES AND OTHERS BY SEEING THEMSELVES AS GOD AND OTHERS AS WELL. AMEN.
