Subject: “Relationships are the Reflection of the Divine.”
Received by Chris.
Teacher Ophelius: “Today, dear one, we would like to talk about relationships and how important they are in the journey of the soul. There are many types of relationships and these are the very things that prepare us for unification with the I AM, and so it is that these relationships become the survivable part of the human experience – that highly prized gift you share with the Creator as you live, and move, and have your being. Beneath all your striving, your pursuits, your successes, your love of others, there is but one Real Relationship, and that is to know the One Truth and to find and experience the greatest, most pure, and absolute unconditional love there is in all of creation – to experience the final embrace of God.
“All of you humans on the earth are in various stages of spiritual development and each of you has a greater or lesser degree of personal experience and relationship with deity. Simply acknowledging the sovereignty of God as creator of all constitutes a relationship. When you are born into the world, the Creator puts in place a ‘tension’ between you and Himself that draws you back to Him like a magnet. We call this drawing power ‘Spiritual Gravity’. God knows that because you are new souls starting out at the beginning of life that you must learn very quickly many things and develop relationships with others to prepare you for your journey back home, and so you naturally seek out those experiences and relationships on earth that emit the greatest spiritual gravity.
“Many are drawn to this spirit gravity in the compliment of being – a lover, for it is said that ‘to behold the eyes of love is to see the face of God.’ This is why so many seek for the elusive ‘soul-mate’, because to them, this relationship would signify the greatest degree of ‘reflection’ or unconditional love, which emits the greatest degree of spiritual gravity – the closest thing to unity with the creator while living in a state of imperfection. All relationships – friends, lovers, parents, and children will exhibit varying degrees of this spiritual gravity and so you experience varying degrees of love from each relationship, which in reality is a reflection of the divine countenance, but conditioned by imperfection. This is why your most valuable relationships are those that love you with ‘less-condition’.
“Some seek this spiritual gravity through indirect relationships as in the creation of art or music. A musician channels the expression of the soul in his or her music; the artist, through his or her painting or sculpture. The ‘feed-back’ or appreciation or joy that others get from experiencing the artist’s work provides the spiritual gravity and the reflection of the divine through this indirect relationship.
“It therefore becomes evident that those things that survive and become a part the soul are in ‘relationship’ with the three divine attributes: Truth, Beauty, and Goodness. Each relationship that embodies Truth, Beauty, or Goodness, teaches us something that we can use to transform our imperfect self into something that will bring us closer into unity with Source.
“To freely give love without expectation is to mimic the divine pattern, and so as you do this, you shall receive even greater love in return because by giving, you move closer to unity, therefore do you ‘feel’ the greater effect of spirit gravity – Unconditional Love.
“Peace to You,
“The Circle of Seven.”

are the noblest paths to higher consciousness.” – Teacher Ophelius, 2009.
