The messages on this site build on each other; for their full impact, read them in sequence beginning with September 2008 (archived below). They detail the situation on this planet, our place in the universe, and a positive picture for our future – if we are willing to act. I hope, by presenting them to you, that they spark your curiosity, and a decision to join with others to create a new civilization on Earth. As always I encourage you to seek your own unique truth, and live it.

This is my 61st posting to Mark’s Corner for 2009. It is my great pleasure to welcome back God who wishes to communicate with us about challenges.

Good Day, My children. I am pleased to again have this opportunity to clarify certain things. A lifetime on Earth is a lifetime filled with challenges. Everyone who incarnates on this planet agrees to incarnate knowing in advance that their life will be filled with difficult challenges. If you did not wish difficult challenges you would not have chosen to come to this planet, particularly at this juncture.

In the months ahead the challenges will change, there I go again using one of my favorite words, “change.” In the months ahead, the challenges will be unlike those experienced before by Earth-humans. Earth herself will change, transforming herself back to the brilliant sphere that she was when humans first arrived. This returning will cause many dislocations in what you believe is the natural order of things.

Your challenge will be to adapt to these changes. Weather will change, ice will melt, and seas will rise, as warming engulfs the entire planet. There may even be “earth shifts.” All of these will present challenges of adapting to a changed environment.

There will be additional challenges to your traditional life as many of your man-made institutions collapse to make way for new ways of organizing to provide for the good of all. You will learn about leadership and how to teach each new ways of organizing and doing. More challenges face you as you transform into the humans of the new Earth.

One of your challenges will be to forget your traditional ways of relating to each other. You will come to see each other as My children, whether from this planet or some far off sphere. The challenge will be to put aside traditional ways of knowing each other, of judging each other, of loving or fearing each other.

The best way to approach all these challenges is to see them as learning opportunities. First and foremost, Earth is an educational planet. That was the purpose for which I created her. She is diverse and beautiful in order to teach her occupants about beauty and diversity. Learn from the experience of being here.

Many grumble at these new challenges. Many resist them. The sooner you see them as learning experiences the easier you life will be. Begin practicing today: The next time someone does something that of which you do not approve, see it as a learning opportunity. Look at the experience in a new way. See it as an expression that is there to teach you something about yourself, and something about your brother or sister. But mostly it is to teach you about Me. I created this opportunity so that you might see My diversity, My encompassing of all there is in My universe. Practice acceptance. Practice flowing in the moment. See the opportunity to love another for who they are, not in judgment, but in acceptance of the real them, not their behavior.

And yes, this also applies to those who follow the dark energy, for they too are My children. Accept them for who they are, a child of Mine. Look beyond their behavior to the soul of which they are a manifestation. Many of you have chosen to spend a lifetime in one of these roles. I allowed darkness into My universe; it is now on the wane, fleeing from the light of My other children.

In summary let Me say that you will continue to be challenged, increasingly so in the near term. It is your choice as to how you react to these challenges. I commend you for incarnating at this time of Earth’s transition. And, finally remember who you truly are during the difficult challenges. You are My child; I am always with you.

Thank you God. I believe this message will help all of us who are feeling challenged.
