Peace, Solitude, Contemplation
Now let us move on to the second part.
Most of My children are subject to living in an active world. So did I, though not in this time of madness. You must learn how to escape inside yourselves to find solitude in Me. It does not matter where you are. Peace, solitude, the love of contemplation will become the cornerstone of your life, of your soul, since I am the cornerstone of your soul.
Understand, My little ones, I immersed Myself inside My Heart to find the peace of My Father and to rest in solitude. To find loving care, I rested My head on My Holy Mother's lap. You also need to seek love and to worry about each other.
Man needs the love of the community and the affection of each of its members. I want you to understand that man was created to give glory to God for His honor, and therefore to praise the Creator for His blessings, which will always be essential for the freedom of the soul.
Do not seek rest and peace in inner sources. Immerse yourselves within My Sacred Heart when you want to rejuvenate your souls. Those who truly want to find love and peace will find Me. Protection and intimacy with Me can only be found here, as well as absolute knowledge, which I grant you through the heart because, even though you have knowledge through intelligence, you do not have knowledge unless it is processed and absorbed in profound love, through the heart.
Beloved ones, think of My earthly life. I worked hard, I passed through rough land and grew tired, but I never stopped teaching My Father's Word and being Merciful to those who were in need. I was crucified and humiliated in the middle of a market of thieves and savage people, nobody wanted to hear about God’s Mercy. It was a place where nobody paid attention to the living Son of God.
I could not find peace on the outside, because there was no external peace in the world. I came to save the world so that all might have life and peace, but I immersed Myself within My Father's Heart in the solitude, contemplation and peace of His Love… Today I call you to this same magnetic quietness of solitude that exists within you, internally, not externally and with less shouting and noise, with less words lacking in harmony. I live in the inside; that is where you will find rest in your active world and guidance for My teachings of the eternal truths. Only then will you be able to see Me living externally among you all, but not before you have seen Me internally, because that is where you will first see yourselves and there, within you, Me.

Rivas, has received an official imprimatur from the Catholic Church for several books she says she was instructed to write by Jesus Christ, Mary and various Angels. Scoop’s extract, above, comes from Rivas’s book “The Door to Heaven”.
