Why Love Must Not Be Special!

Love is not special. a course in miracles

not special

This is contrary to what one might expect. Love can be special, is special, we say. What this quote is saying is that when we love someone more than anyone else we’re making exceptions that are ego-based. The source of love is God and God will not and cannot love one part of his creation more than another. Love cannot make exceptions and therefore ‘is not special’. Our love, if we are to truly become the love that we already are, must be like God’s for her creation.

How To Create Miracles…

Miracles occur naturally as expressions of love. a course in miracles

express love

Expressing love, because we are love, is our prime duty and privilege. God, being love, and everything, means that love is what we must realize we already are. That’s really our only purpose on this planet. Any other pursuit is foolhardy and not worth anything. We deserve to live happy, healthy and joyous lives. That’s only possible if we allow the miraculous love of God to be expressed through and as us.

What’s the Purpose of Work?

Offer all thy works to God… Gita

labor day

Yesterday was Labor Day in the United States. What’s the purpose of any or all work? The purpose of anything that we do in life must be to fulfill ourselves deeply, to be genuinely happy and to experience peace. According to the Bhagavad Gita, the purpose of life, and therefore work, is to realize our true identity within this reality. And one express way to achieve that goal is to consecrate all activity, all work, to the Divine.

Why Love Everyone and Everything?

Love the whole world as a mother loves her only child. Buddha

everyone, everything, every time

Love is the very substance of everything. This isn’t a trite statement. The substance of everything is God, who is nothing but love. And that’s the very reason why if and when we love everyone, everything, we connect directly to our own substance. That’s the only way back home into the arms of God.

How To Return Home…

I rule my mind, which I alone must rule. a course in miracles

god’s invitation

We left home and now we’re lonely. There’s nothing in the world we’ve created that can satisfy us. Only re-union with God will fulfill us. God has invited us back already. But first we must decide that we want to head back home. Then I must decide to ‘rule my mind’, reign it in and finally ‘I’ must hand the reigns over to God. He can then gently guide us back home.

How To Find ‘The Way’…

You don’t need to know the way. The way knows the way. – anonymous

the way

We struggle to figure it all out. The answer is right in front of us. The answer, is us. We never ever find it because we’re always looking out there. If we but give it a break, stop, pause, and become still. The answer, the way, is then, apparent.
