Do You Need Me? I Am There

Many years ago, James Dillet Freeman, the Poet Laureate at Unity, heard these comforting words while praying in a hospital chapel for his wife. He felt comforted as he jotted down the message on a piece of paper. Little did he know it was destined to go to the moon. 

Do you need Me?


You cannot see Me, yet I am the light you see by.
You cannot hear Me, yet I speak through your voice.
You cannot feel Me, yet I am the power in your hands.
I am at work, though you do not understand My ways.
I am at work, though you do not recognize My works.
I am not strange visions. I am not mysteries.
Only in absolute stillness, beyond self, can you know
Me as I am, and then but as a feeling and a faith.

Yet I am there. Yet I hear. Yet I answer.
When you need Me, I am there.
Even if you deny Me, I am there.
Even when you feel most alone, I am there.
Even in your fears, I am there.
Even in your pain, I am there.

I am there when you pray and when you do not pray.
I am in you, and you are in Me.
Only in your mind can you feel separate from Me,
for only in your mind are the mists of "yours" and "mine."
Yet only with your mind can you know Me and
experience Me.

Empty your heart of empty fears.
When you get yourself out of the way, I am there.
You can of yourself do nothing, but I can do all.
And I am in all.
Though you may not see the good, good is there, for
I am there.

I am there because I have to be, because I am.
Only in Me does the world have meaning; only out of
Me does the world take form; only because of Me does
the world go forward.

I am the law on which the movement of the stars
and the growth of living cells are founded.
I am the love that is the law's fulfilling. I am
assurance. I am peace. I am oneness. I am the law
that you can live by. I am the love that you can
cling to. I am your assurance. I am your peace.
I am one with you. I am.

Though you fail to find Me, I do not fail you.
Though your faith in Me is unsure, My faith in
you never wavers, because I know you, because I love you.
Beloved, I am there.

--James Dillet Freeman

In Rex Hauck's documentary, Angels II, Beyond the Light, James shares how he always felt somehow he was to be part of the moon mission. Astronauts Buzz Aldrin and James Irwin both carried this poem with them to the moon. And, Irwin left it there for future space travelers.  It's a comfort to remember while gazing at the moon, that we too are never alone. I AM with you always.

Enjoy your day with the Angels. 

Love and joyful blessings,
