Book 1, Page 115
One of my favorite paragraphs from Conversations With God, Book 1 by Neale Donald Walsch:
“Seek not to make of your love a glue that binds, but rather, a magnet that first attracts, then turns and repels, lest those who are attracted begin to believe they must stick to you to survive. Nothing could be further away from the truth. Nothing could be more damaging to another. Let your love propel your beloveds into the world – and into the full experience of who they are. In this, will you have truly loved.”
So, how do you love?
Truly loving is about empowering the one you love – not to be forever in love with you, but to fall in love with who they really are.
That’s what we’re really here for – to cause another to see the beauty of their existence, mirrored back to them, in our eyes.
And then, projected back to the world as a gift, by leaving many indentations in the universe; each stating that – yes, because they existed, lived, & loved – the world was made more beautiful.
And that is the truth. The world is more beautiful because you are here. Now be here, and be love.
