We cannot Cherry pick! To decide what to love and what not to love would be contradictory to love itself. Love; by virtue is UNCONDITIONAL, or it is not love. Individuated specifically targeted points that we have a strong draw toward are nothing more than selfish desires. To be TRUE LOVE, we must understand TRUE LOVE, and once we do; we do not CHERRY PICK!
Life; (GOD) is like a puzzle. We each are extensions of The Divine, with a unique piece to add. When we embrace LIFE selecting only certain pieces and discarding the rest, we have placed conditions on GOD and have not embraced the Totality of of the UNIVERSE. Once conditions are placed we limit our experience hence seeking self-serving conditions to fill the void. We THINK those conditions are what we LOVE, but LOVE is Unconditional, so we remain in NEED.
“Perfect love casts out fear. If fear exists, then there is not perfect love. Only perfect Love exists. If there is fear it produces a state that does not exist”. ~ A Course in Miracles ~
“The inward draw of things toward one another is the most powerful force in the universe; we call it LOVE”~JR~
Our greatest misunderstanding of the true nature of LIFE/LOVE/GOD/ALL-THAT-IS/OURSELVES, (and these are all DIVINE SYNONYMS), is the illusion that anything is separate from anything. The Source of ALL-THAT-IS, has divided ITSELF, infinitely, both in form, and without form, for the purpose of experience. All these DIVISIONS, are naturally seeking to connect at a spiritual level. This draw is what we feel as desire, and attempt to fill externally; Things-power-money-control- experiences, ad-infintum! The force is LOVE!
As the prodigal Son endeavored off to experience his individuity, so have all of us. Realizing our ONENESS, will create the grand feast that was presented upon his return.
Adam and Eve took that same journey.
Every want, need, desire, longing is LOVE misdirected, as all we really are looking for is our original sense of UNITY! (HUMPTY DUMPY HAD ALL THE KINGS HORSES AND MEN TRYING TO DO THE SAME)
John 14:20 “On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you”.
Luke 17:23 The Kingdom of God is within you.
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all of the barriers within yourself that you have built against it”. ~ A Course in Miracles ~
“Love is God gathering all his pieces together” JR
Our world will repair itself when it’s inhabitants come to the realization that ALL THINGS ARE CONNECTED AND A- PART OF EVERYTHING: NOT APART FROM EVERYTHING. When we suspend all judgment, and cease “cherry-picking” who we will love and who we will not. Then will we have come to know ourselves.
The Journey IS the Destination!
