“Thus you go from the top of the mountain to the world with a clear goal: to bring love.” Choose Only Love bk.2, 21:II
This quotation is strongly reminiscent of the journey to the top of the mountain that takes up the last 40 (actually 41) chapters of A Course of Love. We take that journey with Jesus, and with our brothers and sisters. And we return to the world with a burning message of Awakening in love.
I fear that discussing love so often in this blog will make others feel that the advice is trite. The idea that love is trite is simply because religious leaders have harped on this idea for millennia. It is the principal advice we find from Jesus as well: Love God, and love our neighbor.
We need to take a good, hard look at love, and realize, perhaps, that we have never fully considered its meaning before. The ego had veiled our eyes.
The point is made in other channelings by Jesus that if love were some new substance in the universe just discovered by scientists, we would take a further look at it—saying that we had just been ignorant of it previously, but we are open to it now. Well, as often as the word “love” has been evoked, we are missing the mark if we don’t take it seriously in our life. But not serious in an egoic sense, but in a lighthearted, even playful, way.
Love will take us to lighthearted happiness. And it is this that God would have us experience in this world. Sure, there are serious problems in our world, but we do no one any favors by walking around with a long face. We help our brothers and sisters most keenly when we love them in the joyful sense that Jesus means. Then and only then do we make a difference.
Take a good, strong look at the love that we might have missed. Know that this is indeed the Answer to our prayers.
