Dear Light Group,

To varying degrees, we are all hostages. We are controlled by the conditioning we received as children, the mores of the society in which we live, the religion to which we belong, the politics that we subscribe to, and the desires that advertising stimulates in us. We allow ourselves to be held hostage because we want to be acceptable and we want to be loved.

There is hostage-taking at the inner level–what we do to ourselves. There also is hostage-taking on the outer level, as occurred at Pulse, the Orlando night club, a few days ago. The motivations are the same–a desire to be loved–although the outcomes fortunately are rarely as horrific as the one in Orlando.

So how do we free ourselves? And how do we help free those who take others hostage and do them harm?

One way is to recognize our Oneness with everything. In doing that, we receive an infinite amount of Love. Then, we know we are Love, and we know that that Love flows constantly. We know that our whole reason for existence is to give of that Love. In the Oneness and in the Love is true freedom–freedom from fear, freedom from desires, freedom from anything that wants to make a hostage of our consciousness.

We can get into this consciousness with prayers such as, “The Creator in me fills me with Light and Love. The Creator in me fills every gene inside of me with Light and Love. The Creator in me changes my DNA so that only Light and Love are present. There is nothing of the past that controls me.”

Having freed ourselves, we are better able to pray for others: “The Creator in all those killed in Pulse, the Orlando night club, are filled with Light and Love. The Creator fills the families of all those killed in the Orlando night club with Light and Love. The Creator fills Omar Mateen with Light and Love. The Creator fills ISIS with Light and Love. The Creator fills all those who hate with Light and Love. All is Light. All is Love. All is Peace. All is Truth. All is Joy.”

Love and Light,
Tully
