“Grace does not descend until your Father knows that you are willing to prepare a place to receive it. This is why, in the process of healing and awakening, it is not necessary to seek for Love. It is only necessary to prepare the place, the soil, by choosing to discover the obstacles to Love—which all come down to fear—and to be willing to loosen that root, that it might be removed from the garden of your consciousness. (“The Way of the Heart,” WOM, Lesson 12, Page 142 – 143)
Today’s quotation builds on the preceding quotations for the day. The metaphor of a garden continues. We prepare the soil by removing the weeds of fear. Our garden is our consciousness. The soil is our mind, reaching down into the unconscious for healing.
Our soul knows what to do. If we make ourselves available, the elixir of peace will solve everything. Leave time for calm moments in the course of a day. If we rush about with way too many things to do, how can we also be engaged in healing our minds? A busy mind does not heal well.
Love is what we know when fear has been removed. Love is our birthright. The moments in which we feel love for others and for ourselves are healing to us. Love envelops us when the thorn of fear is loosened from the garden that is our consciousness.
Feeling Love with our heart means that we have found God. And He will then move to transform us by enlightenment.
