Note: I am now going to include, from time to time, passages and my reflections from the new series, Choose Only Love. The work is being received by Sebastian Blaksley, who lives in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The book is presented as a contribution by angels, archangels, Jesus, and Mary.
This is to be a seven-volume series, two volumes of which have now been published. The publisher is Take Heart Publications. Available on Amazon and Barnesandnoble.com in print and e-book.
Reading the passages slowly and meditatively, part of a devotional, seems to me to be best.
Little by Little, Let Love Fill Our Being
“Calm your minds. Calm your hearts. Close your eyes for a moment. Stay with me, your Heavenly Mother. Together let us repose in peace, united in the stillness of Christ. Give me your imagination, your memory, your will, your all. Leave everything aside. Feel how your heart widens when receiving the love of God. Little by little, let love fill your being and overflow completely, extending to all creation.” Choose Only Love: Let Yourself Be Loved (COL bk.2, 7:IV)
We have in this section of Choose Only Love a contribution from Mary, mother of Jesus. This passage, like all from her, are soothing in the extreme. We see the influence of A Course of Love, in that we are encouraged to calm both mind and heart, a dual reminder of the emphasis placed on both mind and heart (“wholeheartedness”) in ACOL.
Love is at the center of this passage, something that we will see throughout this Volume 2, fittingly entitled, “Let Yourself Be Loved.” I feel reassured here, for the onus is not placed on us as a command: to love. We do not extend Love until we have been assured that we are loved by God. If we try to move from an unstable core, the ego, we will quickly find that nothing we do will have enough love in it. It is true that giving and receiving are one, but we love because “He first loved us,” as the Bible says.
Little by little, we read, we fill our being to overflowing with love. When we have done this, drawing from the celestial realm, we will know a peace and happiness that has eluded us until now.
