The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and the acceptance of love.--Marianne Williamson How different Love is from mere love. It does not take a single person or group of people to declare their love for you. You are already the Beloved, lifted into a place of absolute “treasuredness”. The Eternal Love holds you in your darkest nights, saying “don’t give into fear”. Fear, though, is what we have learned, fear that we will never measure up; in other words, fear that we will never be worthy of the Love upon which we are dependent for survival. Unlearning fear—complex process that it is—means that we learn Love. A Love that is revealed in awe-awakening nature of the laughter of young children and in the strength and courage that comes to us from places that we did not know lived within us. This is Love defeating Fear; Love sending out its rays like the sun as it rises to celebrate a new day. May we be full of the recognition of Love at every turn. Namaste
