The Great Crusade of Love
A school for teaching on the relationship of Jesus with Man.

Happy Is He Who becomes
One with Me
In the high regions, where human things are seen as a whole and in the completeness of the truth, live those who have perfect union of Will with Me and who anxiously desire from Me the total and sole manifestation. I refer to Heaven, where love reigns unquestionably and where joy is permanent. In comparison with the reign of joy, is the reign in which hate and fury inflames those who voluntarily repudiate Me.
In Heaven, one is the Will that leads and satisfies all the blessed spirits, those which for free and pure love want solely what is pleasing to Me. This is because all their desire lies precisely in Mine: no divergence, but on the contrary, perfect and peaceful harmony of desires.
They are familiar with what I want for I manifest it to them, and they are free but ardently dedicated to the fulfillment of what pleases Me.
Since I am the love that they love, I am He in whom they have dissolved their abilities and themselves entirely. Therefore, it cannot be said that there are many wills, although concurrent, but only one Will because Love is one.
On the other hand, in hell there is no happiness but hate; no union but complete disagreement. They are in total darkness and are there because of self-esteem, a love that makes them hate Me and everyone.
For that reason violence is supreme in hell… Now think about these things and reflect that you could be like the blessed ones, or else, like the condemned. In order to be blessed it is necessary to walk through the road of submission; in order to be condemned one has to go through the road of absolute independence, that is to say of rebellion. Happy is he who leaves himself to contemplate Me until becoming one with Me. Condemned is the one who, remaining in himself, becomes arrogant in such a way that he turns monstrous because of his egoism.
Direct the mind to these things and may nothing be sweeter to know than the fact that I prepare you with a thousand pressures to allure you to Me and to give you the free love that reigns in Heaven…
