Love Defines What We Are

If you find yourself thinking about “why” you love someone, pause and realize you are vastly limiting, as well as distorting, your true feelings for them. “Reasons” to love means there are also reasons not to love. To fully appreciate the power of your loving is to recognize there is nothing that can, in truth, oppose it. Thinking there is, is what gives rise to all illusions. The thought of sin and separation could not exist in your awareness if it were absorbed with loving. If we are ever to be free of our story of sin we must be willing to love “unreasonably,” for it is love that defines what we are.
