Heavenreaders are so fine. You. You are. You touch my heart. You touch my heart by the comments you post on the forum and this blog, the extent of your wisdom and your love, your openness, and the example of giving you are and the example you are of asking nothing in return but to love God.
I am often blown away. I am the farthest thing from blase. And I well know that the words you write are meant for God, and are from God as well. That doesn't stop me from taking great joy in what you give to God.

Heavenletters™ have inspired me. Thank you seems inadequate. We often read your letters at the study group I go to in Sacramento and also the S.F. East Bay area because Heavenletters and The Way of Mastery complement each other perfectly. I have been reading my copy of Heavenletters, Love Letters from God, Book One, at night before I go to sleep, and it is now a part of my spiritual practice. Thank you for the gift and for the commitment to be a conduit. As my dear friend says to me…”you conduit!" Thank you for your commitment to serving the Voice for Love. In love and gratitude, Tina
I love the idea of people sharing Heavenletters™. And how happy God must be. Tina, I have to mention how much I adore, "...you conduit!"
Tina's study group is based on The Way of Mastery, The Way of the Heart, The Way of Transformation, and The Way of Knowing. http://www.shantichristo.com/mastery.html
And Tina is right. The Way of Mastery and Heavenletters have much the same Voice, the same Truths. Both are from a Voice of Love.
You may know that I want to travel light in life, and, since Heavenletters, I am mostly unable to read other spiritual writings -- as good as they may be -- I can't seem to read spiritual books any more. I am aware that I don't want to be influenced by other works, and I don't want to find myself comparing Heavenletters up or down.
And, yet, when Tina offered to send me The Way of Mastery, I said a resounding Yes.
The writing is beautiful. The book itself is a treasure. It is a powerful holy book.
Here are a few wonderful excerpts. These excerpts are about ego -- one of God's "favorite" subjects! I let the Way of Mastery web site do my groundwork for me and took these quotations from the website:
Egoic consciousness is fear-full consciousness. The ego is fear.
I can attest to that. Is there one of us unfamiliar with the fear ego instills?
You must decide to live as if you were not the ego.
What a wonderful way to put it. Yes, we must. We must decide, and, please, God, may we succeed.
I have shared with you many times that it is the egoic mind that compares and contrasts. Therefore, never compare or contrast your experience with another person’s. Yours is unique.
Haven't we done enough of that? Oh, yes, let's be done with it. No more judging.
Here's one more quotation, and this one blew me away:
The very energy of seeking is the egoic energy. For only the ego can seek. Pure Spirit can only extend. And there is a huge difference.
Wow, this is dynamite! It reminds me of the years when I blatantly sought enlightenment. I didn't only seek -- I FOUGHT for enlightenment. I was going to take enlightenment by the neck, make it mine, my possession, and never let it go, as if enlightenment could be a possession I own.
I suppose now it could be said that I seek to be done with ego. I wonder, do I take pride in that? Oh, dear. Too much attention on myself.
Tina, thank you from the bottom of my heart for your gift and your extra gift and for your appreciation of all that is true.
Tina, there is no ego in you. None whatsoever.
With love and blessings,
