Take Heart Publications is delighted to announce the release of a second major channeled work, Choose Only Love, received by Sebastian Blaksley. Invisible realms of Angels became visible to Sebastian in an extraordinary series of 144 visitations overseen by Archangels Raphael and Gabriel. Sebastian has been in touch with these realms since the age of five. They call him “a pencil in the hand of God,” and asked him to take down these messages, which include messages from Jesus and Mother Mary. Choose Only Love: Echoes of Holiness is the first of seven volumes in this work. Please visit chooseonlylove.org to be introduced to Sebastian and his experience. The book can be purchased here. The following article is excerpted from the book.

The Abundance of the Heart

Excerpts from
Choose Only Love: Echoes of Holiness
Received by Sebastian Blaksley

The word is powerful, because it arises from the abundance of the heart. Your hearts are like an unfathomable treasury from which you create countless universes of ideas and nuances in the expression of those ideas. Your treasury never runs out, for you are unlimited. Your word arises from the depths of your hearts. It is your symbolic expression, your language, which manifests not only in the spoken word but also in your body, in every gesture and movement, as well as through your emotional body in all that you do or stop doing, Your lives are a constant communication in all that you attract to yourself or reject from your consciousness.

The word is thought and thought is always powerful, much more than you recognize. Therefore, we ask you always to speak with love. Children of God, do not complain in your hearts when we ask you to speak more and more as Christ speaks. Rather, enjoy it. Feel the embrace of the love of the Mother of God who wants her children to remember how to live as a blessing through the holy use of language, just as Christ does. Enjoy this simple path of living as a blessing and thus dive more and more into the depths of the Heart of God, and dwell there. Grow day after day in blessings. Remember that your function is to bless creation. What else can that mean but to speak with love on your lips, in your expression, in your hearts, and in your whole self?

Cleansing your hearts of all feelings that do not come from love will purify your words and illumine the Earth. Then the abode of Christ shines. Keep your hearts sparkling like the pure crystal castles where Christ dwells. You are the abode of Christ, never forget. You no longer live, but Christ lives in you. He is always comfortable in you, just as you are.

Everything Communicates

Perhaps you ask yourselves why we speak of the “laws of humans” and their rebellion against the “laws of love” when we have told you that we come to speak about the word. We do this because there is an inseparable relationship between language and identity. In fact, language is identity and vice versa, in such a way that just as God is the word of eternal life, you are a manifest word. Everything is word because everything is thought. Everything in you communicates and cannot stop communicating. Your life is a trustworthy testimony to what you communicate. You communicate union or separation; you communicate fear or love; you communicate illusion or truth.
A language that does not come from union is a language that separates, as it is inevitably the perfect manifestation of its source. A language based on the union that is Christ is a language based on love, and therefore unites. The language of separation is harsh, inflexible, and leaves little room for compassion. The language of union is easily recognized by its sweetness, always inclining toward bridges of friendship and reconciliation, integrating rather than nullifying the parties involved. Its tenderness is evident as well as the certainty coming from its perfect wisdom. The language of love has no room for fear, because it has no room for judgment or punishment. The language of love has room only for truth.
You have experienced both languages clearly. Each is known by its fruits. Each is a system of thought. One is the language of the world, which always speaks of superiority and separation, and causes sadness and confusion. The other is the language of love, always coming from truth and equality, and brings joy and peace because it dwells in certainty. You can access either flow. With every thought or word, you are manifesting something from the deep cavern of your pure potential, from the abundance of your heart.
We have come to invite you to express yourself now and forever in the language of love, a language that, although beyond all words, embraces with tenderness and beauty all that is part of you. Your body absorbs love. Your voice absorbs love, as does your mind and heart. Likewise, the Earth absorbs love. The whole material universe absorbs love. Even unconsciousness, the source of separation and fear, can absorb love. Therefore make your words and everything you express be the living manifestation of love. All that is required is your willingness.

The Language of Unity

As a result of the rebellion, which replaced knowledge with perception, the language of love was replaced by unintelligible languages that increasingly reflected separation and caused confusion. This is symbolized by the Tower of Babel. Likewise, the story of Adam and Eve symbolized knowledge being replaced by perception—the apple of the tree of good and evil. This is not what was planned originally.
While the languages of the world are languages of separation, it need not be so. Language need not divide. Knowledge need not be misrepresented by interpretation. In other words, just as you have been called to return to the direct knowledge of God, abandoning all learning and desire to learn in order to return to direct revelation as the means to access wisdom, now you are also called to manifest within yourselves the language of love. Allow your memory to begin to recall divine memories and thus remember the language that is a living expression of your true identity.
Love is the language of unity. It is the language that recognizes your heart because it is the language of communion. When living in communion with all that you are and with everything that is around you and beyond, you are living within love. To live in love is to drink from the waters of eternal life. Drinking from the waters of eternal life nurtures your self with what God created to be your true identity, giving attributes to your self just as His wisdom has arranged. In this way you allow love to be the painter who colors your soul, not your autonomous self.
Masterpiece of God’s love, give the paintbrush of your soul to Christ. Let him and only him express through you. That way, and only in that way, will your self be the living expression of the language of love, for it will be the living expression of the divine truth that dwells in your heart. To let Christ color your soul is to let the beauty, holiness, and purity you truly are paint his masterpiece as you. That is how you become a melody of love, a note in the hymn of praise of creation—a song that, though forgotten, is loved. This is how your whole self will express love and nothing but love. Your heart will be the word of eternal life, a language of communion. Now Heaven itself joins Earth and becomes one with it in you. Now the human and the divine are joined. Now you become aware of being a human expressing in unity. Now you are the communication of love. Now you are communion. Now you are the language of love.

(and a few other poems)

By Don Turner

Sitting by the open window
Savoring morning tea,
Across the cluttered table
A friend’s face glows before me,
Sunlight pouring in,
Voices softly heard in the silence,
Now a bird sings.

Now that the World is New

Now that the world is new
Now that only love is here
Now that we are conscious 
Of who we are 
And what this moment means
Now that we may speak from our hearts
And share our dreams
And live them together 
Now that we are on the other side
Beyond time and uncertainty 
Now when the glassy sun pours
Into every cell
And sweet life sings
In our ears
Now in this new morning of the world
Let us say only what is true
Do only what is good
And create only what is beautiful 
And what will be forever.


Love Is

Love is like a boat
Carrying us onward
On our voyage through life
To beyond.
Love is a journey—
An adventure together
As we awaken each day
In new song.
Love is a moment 
We share in together—
A timeless land
Where our hearts live as One.

A New Day

Cool and delicious morning air,
Awakening, quickening,
I breathe deep
And harmony and beauty infuse.
A new day,
Waiting not on the sun,
But on a rare effusion, a subtle presence
Hidden in the wind.
Before I was not.
But now it fills me,
And only now do I breathe
And look about.
