“You must realize that here is where fear must be totally replaced by love. If you fear to go where the portal of access will take you, you will not go. Thus your desire needs to be greater than your fear. Love needs to reign. Love of self and love of your brothers and sisters, love of the natural world, of the world of form that is, love of the idea of the new world that can be, all of these must come together and be victors over the reign of fear.” (ACOL, D:Day4.38)
God would not have chosen Love as the overwhelmingly best feeling in all universes if He hadn’t known that in no other way would His creation work. We are drawn by Love, drawn from the deepest depths of the ego and the most violently bad deeds we have ever done. Love speaks to us as nothing else can. Regardless of what we have embodied in the past, all of us have felt the mesmerizing effect of a genuine, overshadowing Love. It is this emotion that we need to woo now. It is this emotion that will save us from ourselves.
So sit or lie still for a while, and invite Love to come into our heart. The heart will reach out to the mind. And soon this powerful emotion of Love will transform even the worst day into something grand. We can discover how to love, even when we have been resistant all our lives. When we consider the alternatives, we know that Love with a capital “L” is all that we have really longed to have. And it is this Love that will take us home.
Enfold me in Your arms now, and forever. So melt my heart that I want nothing but the Love that You pour out upon me. May this fervent prayer reach Your heart today, and from heart to heart, I will know the depth of Love that You offer.
