“You have so little faith in yourself because you are unwilling to accept the fact that perfect love is in you, and so you seek without for what you cannot find within.”
~ A Course in Miracles
What would your life look like if you believed that the love you’ve been looking for is within you? I’m not talking about conditional love that will only do for you if you do for it. I’m not talking about the kind of love that’s only there for you in the good times but not in the bad ones. I’m not talking about the kind of love that plays games and sends you mixed signals just to keep you guessing. No, I’m talking about the kind of love that is perfect in every way. It can fill up the cracks, gaps, and holes in your soul left by a painful past. Unfortunately, society has conditioned us to believe that we’re not worthy of perfect love and that perfect love only exists in the movies. Think about how you would move in life differently if you truly believed that you are the love that you are seeking? I imagine you’d handle yourself with gentle hands instead of being so rough with yourself. You’d stop looking at yourself and others through the eyes of judgement and finally believe that you and your neighbor are enough.
We live as “human doings” instead of as human beings. After we left our mother’s womb we ceased to be and now we “do”. As “human doings” we’re on the constant search to find something or someone who will ease our pain and satisfy our soul. Once you find what you think you’re looking for you’ll do anything to keep it in your life. However, it is of the utmost importance that you understand that there is nothing you need outside of you that you can’t find within you. Addiction doesn’t only come in the form of drugs, but it can come in the form of people, food, sexual perversions and many other things. What would your life look like if you let that person or thing go for good? You are stronger than the lies you’ve been telling yourself about yourself.
I’d be remiss if I didn’t tell you where this perfect love originates. God the same spirit that created everything you see and don’t see is that perfect love for which you have longed. He doesn’t have love he is love. When he breathed eternal life into you he endowed your spirit with himself…perfect love. The love within you is eternal because he is eternal. When you decide to stop looking outside of yourself for temporary lovers, you’ll realize that your spirit is a storage facility filled with everything you’ll need from now until eternity. Align yourself with the truth of your identity which is that you are perfect love and not the lie that you are anything less than that. Align your mind with the mind that created you. It is only then that you’ll see that there is nothing outside of you, and that lack is an illusion. Then and only then will you begin to experience the true love you are and that you deserve.
