“My beloveds, I cannot fail to mention that you must take charge of everything that you experience in yourself that is not love.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 2:III
We have something to do. This word from Jesus tells us just what it is. If something we recognize is not love, love-oriented, then take charge of it, and banish it from our lives.
There are many emotions that are love, emotions of positivity. Harmony, peace, tranquility, being soothed, being cocooned—all of these are of love. But there are also emotions that are not of love. Anger, attack, jealousy, violence—all of these are not of love.
If we recognize that we are harboring one of these negatives, we must do something about it. We must not depend on anyone else to banish these emotions from our self. WE must do it.
The good news is that when we enlarge the love in our lives, the negative emotions of hate fall away of their own accord. We don’t have to seek to discredit them or to remove them. Love embraces all and transmutes the negativity, leaving the positive emotion of love as an all-embracing blessing.
Ask for help from God to shift into love-oriented living today. God is Love, and He will understand our own failings in this regard. He will fill us with His Love, and then all will be well.
