A Return to Love

By Marianne Williamson

"When we surrender to God, we surrender to something bigger than ourselves -- to a universe that knows what it's doing. When we stop trying to control events, they fall into a natural order, an order that works. We're at rest with a power much greater than our own takes over, and it does a much better job than we could have done. We learn to trust that the power that holds galaxies together can handle the circumstances of our relatively little lives." 


The fastest way to "get there" in life is to stand firm in the knowledge that you're already there.
Stand YOUR ground today. Stand on your wisdom. Stand on your principles. Stand on your clarity. Stand on your compassion. Stand on your flexibility. Stand on your serenity. Stand on your love.
Whatever worked in the past, build on it; whatever didn't work in the past, break the chain that binds you to it.
As big as all the universes within all the universes might be, that is how big love is.
"Once you've reached a a certain age, the idea of wasting any opportunity -- particularly the opportunity to love -- is seen as the blasphemy it is. You might as well just spit at God as turn away from the chance to really love. And that's why love burns brightly at midlife; you're no longer under the delusion that the sparks that are flying here fly along every day." ---
God never hits a wall. His Mind is an ever-renewable source of creativity and miracles. YOU are part of His Mind, therefore He is the part of you that cannot hit a wall.

Our divine perfection – not registered by the physical eye but only by the heart’s knowing – is who we truly are. Our mortal imperfections – registered by the physical senses – are not who we truly are. Yet we keep trying, in love, to find each other’s perfection within the world of imperfection. And it simply is not there.
