Love…Our Ultimate Reality
Love is the essential existential fact. It is our ultimate reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Love is who we are and love is what we are here for. Nothing else is real and nothing else matters.
When we attach ourselves to things, we are searching for meaning in the meaningless. Money, of itself, means nothing. Material things, of themselves, mean nothing. It’s not that they’re bad. It’s that they’re nothing.
Denying love is the only problem, and embracing it is the only answer. Love heals all of our relationships: to money, the body, work, sex, death, ourselves and one another. Through the miraculous power of pure love, we let go of our past history in any area and begin again.
It doesn’t matter who we are, where we came from, what Mommy said, what Daddy did, what mistakes we made, what diseases we have, or how depressed we feel. The future can be reprogrammed in this moment. We don’t need another seminar, another degree, another lifetime, or anyone’s approval in order for this to happen. All we need is a gentler perception. All we have to do is ask for a miracle and allow it to happen, not resist it. There can be a new beginning, a life unlike the past. Our relationships shall be made new. Our careers shall be made new. Our bodies shall be made new. There can be a new beginning, a life unlike the past.
