A Story About True Love
Talk summary: In this podcast, Guy Finley talks about the nature of a higher love that never fails to respond perfectly to what is being requested by the present moment.
Talk notes: What is the nature of true love? Real spiritual love has nothing to do with anything that we can give to ourselves. True love is not something that we create. This lower nature that we presently identify with and derive a sense of self from is not the thing that is going to awaken and become loving. The reality is that this is God's Life, and if we want to know true love, then we must let go of everything that we think we know about love for the sake of that life that God would give us.
The spiritual journey is a journey of giving oneself up for something greater than can possibly be imagined by the mind. When we are finally willing to let go and give ourselves to something higher, we do not do it because we are wise or strong or right; we do it because we have seen what is true. It is Love itself that wants us to learn what is true about ourselves so that we can begin to put what is true before all things.
