“In your souls is a deep yearning to live in eternity. To fully satisfy that desire, you must live in love.” Choose Only Love: Let Yourself Be Loved (COL bk.2, 12:II)
We dip below time when we are experiencing real love. We see a glimpse of living in eternity, for the things of love are the things of eternity. In actual fact, only love is true reality in our experience. Otherwise, we are living an illusion. If we place our faith in illusion, it will always let us down. Love that is true and good never lets us down. Even a presumed end to a relationship is not the real end. A Course in Miracles tells us that all who meet will someday meet again, that it is the result of love never losing sight of itself. All relationships are meant to become holy.
If we live in love, we are safe from all that might trouble us. Sure, we still experience painful happenings, but they don’t have the staying power that they once did. We rise above pain and suffering when we live in love. Love is the great panacea for all manner of ill.
We need to recognize that our yearning for permanence in eternity is actually a desire, a longing, for love. And when we experience love, even fleetingly, we will never be satisfied with living any other way.
Love is God. Love makes itself known in an eternity that can be experienced even on this earth.
Ask to experience this eternity, in Love, today.
