“Bringing human nature to its fullness in love is what has been the purpose of Our incarnation, just like yours. There are no differences between you and Us.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 8:III
Jesus is here speaking of himself and Mary. If we know that we have one purpose in this world, and that purpose is to live in the fullness of love, then life becomes very easy. We do things that promote love, and we avoid things that do not. How hard can this be?
One purpose means that life becomes simple. Oh, how our insane ego has made life in this world so complicated!
But we are through with this madness—and through with it now! Affirm to God that we will walk His way, and His way only.
And then life will become completely bearable, and easy and simple in the extreme.
“I invite you to walk a holy path, a simple way, just as love is.” Choose Only Love bk.2, 21:II
We are the ones who complicate our lives. The way of Jesus, the way of love, is just simple. The holy path that we walk is simple. We introduce the complexity. And if we introduce it, we can stop it.
Jesus has our best interests in mind. He sees the turmoil of our world, the awful catastrophes we get involved in, and I often think it hurts his heart. He tries hard to get us to reconsider our choices, to change our lives, to honor the love with which we were born. Our innate leanings are all toward love. We obscure this truth because it would hurt us so much to truly realize how and where we have gone astray.
Walk a holy path today. Ask for help, for none of us can see the footpath if we don’t ask for vision. Keep life a little simpler today.
