“All that you have ever wanted to experience in your lives can be summed up in one word: Love. You all want to experience love. You may not see everything that you desire as a part of the love that you are, but it is. It is your love that you want to experience, and your love is often held back.
So you offer your love when the conditions are right, and you hold it back when they are not. So your attempts to have the things that you want – the relationships, the jobs, the homes, all of it – are the conditions that you have determined will be appropriate for your love. If you are living in a cramped studio apartment with noisy neighbors and a terrible view of a parking lot, you hold back your love and you say, ‘When I can live in a home that is spacious and quiet with a lovely view, then I will love my home.’
So you see, all that you want in life, you want because you want it to elicit the love that you are. You want the love that you are to flow, but the conditions of your life do not always draw it forth from you easily and effortlessly. Sometimes the circumstances of your life require you to make a choice. They require you to choose to love, to choose to let who you are flow through you.
And those circumstances that you deem to be inappropriate and unworthy of your love will not change until you change, until you decide that you want to be the love and the light in that which is unlovable and dark. It is always your decision, and it is a decision that you must make consciously. You must know that you are making this decision in every circumstance.
Because if you don’t, if you believe that your love can only flow under certain conditions, then you will never know who you truly are. You will never know yourselves as unconditional love. But worry not, because sooner or later you will make that choice. The love that you are is just that strong.
