“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.” (James 4: 7-8)
In the presence of Love, human efforts are meaningless.
As humans, we have our ideas of what Love is and what it means to act from a place of Love. All of that is made-up stuff and has nothing to do with Love.
Let’s say you observe someone behaving in a way you believe is not of Love. According to your perception, she is being hateful about someone, angry and filled with fear. You believe her words and thoughts are hurting the other and hurting herself. This is based on the consensus agreement that what you do to others you do to yourself, as there is only One in reality. This is only true because you believe it is true. But from the place of Love, it matters not how someone is acting, for Love only knows Love. Love can only Love. As it is written in the Bhagavad Gita:
“The Lord is everywhere
And always perfect:
What does He care for man’s sin
Or the righteousness of man?” (The Bhagavad Gita, translated by Swami Prabhavananda & Christopher Isherwood)
The Lord is Perfect Love. I am the Lord and it is always Me loving the human form. The Lord is a consuming fire of Love that is so intense it can melt away any resistance one may have, change reality, and leave you in complete bliss. But I have to let go of all human ideas of Love and submit to the Lord.
Do you feel guilty about treating another “badly” in the past? Do you have any regrets? Turn to the Lord for the Lord loves you anyway.
Do you think you are a bad person? Turn to the Lord for the Lord loves you anyway.
Do you feel you are not deserving of love because you don’t know how to love? Turn to the Lord for the Lord loves you anyway.
Do you believe you need to have to understand Truth before you can enjoy all Good? Turn to the Lord for the Lord loves you anyway.
There is nothing I have to learn to be worthy of Love.
There is nothing to forgive to be worthy of Love.
I don’t need to be good to be worthy of Love.
I don’t need to be perfect to be worthy of Love.
There is nothing to prove to be worthy of Love.
All the teachings of truth will never come close to the One Truth that I am the Lord/Divine Love.
All I need to do is accept my inheritance, that I am Love.
If any law exists it is this: “Love, Love, Love.”
I am Love,
