St. Francis explains the blessing and virtue of charity through Linda Dillon, channel for the Council of Love, saying it is our ability to give and receive in balance, and that that balance creates the balance of life, and the balance of the Universe.
Our generosity, sharing our mind, heart, emotions, ideas, beliefs and spiritual path is the blessing, the movement of charity, and our ability to receive such gifts from others, the virtue.
St. Francis tells us on Earth ‘good individuals’ are often defined as charitable, that they ‘give to the poor.’
But the balance of charity, as explained in the higher realms, is our willingness to give and to receive without judgement, especially to receive energy extended from the heart, the abundance of spiritual gifts that have been bestowed upon us.
Heavenly Blessings Radio Show ~ The Blessing and Virtue of Charity with St. Francis
Charity is sending the healing green to all acts of violence, directly to the hearts of those affected without judgement of who did what, knowing it is not our place to judge any being.
St. Francis says our place is to be discerning, to show the way to peace, to tranquility, in the truest sense of the word, which means the sharing of all kinds of resources; spiritual, mental, physical, emotional.
We can send the green to the mothers who do not have enough food for their children and to the fathers who feel inadequate because they feel that they do not provide enough.
We can send the green to all the animals, especially the elephants and the rhinoceros who carry the energy of the Divine Mother, of the feminine nurturing because they are processing a great deal for the collective, not merely for the animal kingdom, but for the humans, that the humans may come along with them.
We can send the green to Gaia, directly to her heart, and we can send it to each other.
St. Francis gives us his Love, his green, his healing, his support that we will know that we are supported and Loved, and says the generosity we give every day, from the sweetness of our beings without even thinking about it, is known and appreciated throughout the Universe.
He says we are cherished and this is the meaning of charity.
It is the sharing of our sacred self, of Who We Are; charity in its truest sense is a very courageous act because it is extending our self and wanting to share — not to fix, not to change direction — but to simply share.
The understanding of charity as ‘assistance’ is incomplete because it really is the desire to simply share and in that it is the movement of charity, the movement of the Infinity.
Charity flows out and back to us, out and back, out and back, and we are meeting in the middle of that figure 8; whether we are giving to the entire planet, or to a dear friend, it is that endless flow of Love.
That is how St. Francis lived in community — what we are coming to understand — that charity is never an effort; it is never a burden. It is quintessential joy.
We share because it is joyous, whether it is saying to a friend,
“Look at the hummingbird, the hawk, the eagle, the bumblebee” both gazing and smiling, understanding that shared moment will never occur again.
When we reach out and connect, that is the core of charity.
Charity is not impersonal. It is very personal — it does not matter whether we are giving a billion dollars to an organization or a dollar — it is personal.
It is not about not caring,
but about caring passionately.
