“If you love some more than others, or if you love certain aspects of creation in a different way than you love others, then you do not understand what love is.” Choose Only Love bk.4, 4:I
What does Choose Only Love mean by this statement about love? How can we wrap our minds and hearts around this idealistic statement?
Like A Course in Miracles, Choose Only Love can be read on different levels. When we seek love in the interpretation of CHOL, we are seeking the love of God, Who loves all equally for we are all treasured children in His eyes. The closer we come to loving the way that God loves, the more “on the beam” we are.
This statement about love does not mean that we don’t choose different expressions of love with different people in our world. We do. This statement about love is not about those different expressions. It is about the heart, our heart as well as the heart of all others. In the heart, we can love equally, and when we do we are touching God’s hemline.
