“Love is not an idea. Love is not an abstraction. Love is you. Love is what you are.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 4:II
We need to understand much more about love than we do. We often think of it as simply a feeling or an emotion. But it is a Force, the Force that is God.
When we give ourselves up to love, we know peace. And we don’t know genuine and lasting peace any other way.
Here we learn that love is what we are. This is actually saying that we partake of the essence of God. He does not stand apart from His creation, but is in it, through and through. So He overshadows us with the love that is the essence of Himself.
Ask to understand love better today. Ask to see how love could be the essence of the universes, of us, of God Himself. We are created of the essence of Him.
We can thrive in no other way than to let love embrace us.
