“This message invites you to remember that your function is to bring love to the world.” Choose Only Love: Let Yourself Be Loved (COL bk.2, 14:I)
Life would be so much simpler if we just realized most of the time that we are meant to bring love to the world. A single, all-embracing purpose such as this also gives meaning to our lives.
Unfortunately, we have heard “love” mentioned so often in this context that we zone out because it seems like the same concept, over and over. If we had taken this concept to heart, this might be understandable. But the problem is that we have not taken this concept to heart. We “play” at love, often special love, an inferior rendering to love that has plenty of drama, including low points. Our holy love, one to another, will save us now. It is the only thing that will save us.
I have found that if I focus on just giving my husband love in this time of isolation, I am walking a green earth. We are happy in the midst of quarantine. May we take this knowledge with us, out into the world, when the quarantine is over.
A Course in Miracles says variously that forgiveness and happiness are functions for us. But Choose Only Love makes it simpler for us. If we focus on love, the forgiveness and happiness will happen all of its own accord.
What more could we ask?
