Wake Up and Walk into a World Where Everything is Always Just Right

Key Lesson: The first step towards being "right" with the Divine begins with seeing that nothing wrong can happen to your True Self.

How Love Chooses You

Nothing exists without Love. She is the secret Heart of all. These are not just words. They are an introduction to an Invitation created when Time began. To what are we invited? To know that we are already a measure of Love's Timeless Life . . . if we will only agree to learn the lessons she has prepared for us, beginning with this:

Love knows whom She will, and none may come to know her treasures without Her decision to divulge them. Yet, though Love may not be coerced to bestow her Grace upon a person -- regardless of even the most dedicated efforts -- She does have one secret faintness: Love longs to be loved, so She loves to be courted. And it is because of this most unique feature that the universe itself (that She alone unifies) literally lines up for anyone who will embrace it for Her sake, gently guiding this same person to the realm of Her timeless Life.

Now in everyone is sown -- into the center of his or her soul -- some love. Of this we may be certain, even though many people today seem counter-testimony to this Truth. Nevertheless, as obscured as Love's presence may be in someone we know or -- and more to the point -- as dim as She may shine within us from time to time -- Love is there.

Love is that latent interior "hunger" we have to know whatever it is that we long to know. Love understands that whatever we will agree to draw near to ensures -- given time -- that we will come to know it; and then, transformed by Her magic through a marriage of a sort, we become as one with what was once unknown to us.

Don't think this too strange an idea. The hidden Principle of Love is that only through Her do we find in the object of our affection something of ourselves: that proverbial missing piece of the perennially empty heart.

The beauty of Love is that She is already within everything; which means that there is nothing that we are drawn to know by Love's invitation that won't grant us for our journey itself the gift of a greater relationship with Love.

Love lends her force to the entire universe, so don't you think that if you were to ask rightly for a bit of it -- for Her sake -- that She would give you the measure you need? Of course She will! All you need do is just make some time, give some moments to your intended journey. Even if all you can muster to get started with is two minutes a day, just place your attention on what you want to love, and it will love you back by giving you a bit of itself.

Persist with this new Work until you see -- which you will if only you will stay the course -- that the love you thought you had chosen was really Love choosing you. And when at last you realize that it has always been this way, then, for you, it will always be so...until the end of time.

How may you be assured that all of this is True?

It is Love that tells you so.
