Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek & find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. – Rumi
we seek love
In whatever we seek, we’re really seeking love. We seek assurance, safety and happiness; these are all the consequences of experiencing the love which can only come from another personality. True love and assurance proceeds from the parent personality that is God, and her love is easier to discover than we might expect…
ask, forgive and expect
Just like our spiritual heritage in general, we block our own experience of love and goodness that’s ever available to us. The steps are as follows:
- Ask. Talk to God and ask to experience this love.
- Forgive: Unless we forgive everyone (including ourselves) and extinguish the resentment that sears our hearts, we will not be able to uncover this divine wellspring.
- Expect: After asking and forgiving, be like a child and expect our parent’s love to be ever present.
Daily Affirmation: Today I walk in God’s love.
