Over the past couple months I have felt a strong pull toward the words of Marianne Williamson. For those of you who don’t know her, I encourage you to check her out. She is an author, speaker, and quite simply one of the most inspiring beings I have encountered. Much of what she speaks about is based in love being the only thing that is real, everything else being an illusion. Everything else stemming from fear. Love is what we are, what we know, and what we desire. Love is the answer to every question and is where we will find all solutions. Love is the miracle that we all can create in our lives.
For so long I have been on a journey, discovering depths within myself. I have lived with the intention of going deeply within, knowing it is there that I will find alignment with universe, truth of my message, and purpose for existence. My road has been at times a very painful one. I have experienced moments of clarity and freedom, only to find that the moments of pain on the horizon would be felt even more deeply and intensely. I have questioned whether I would ever arrive at this space I longed for and have felt discouraged, disheartened, and afraid. What was the piece I was overlooking, where was I going wrong?
As I have listened to Marianne Williamson’s teachings and have read her words, I have been inspired to journey down this path of love, breaking down walls that I have built up and breaking through fears that have controlled my life. Quite simply, in every situation we have the choice to create in love or to create in fear. Any choice we make other than love is rooted in fear and is not even real. Any choice we create other than love will leave us feeling out of alignment and disconnected, the cycle of pain given power. Where there is love there is truth and where there is truth, pain and fear cannot exist. Can the answer be this simple? Can it all come down to love?
I am on the road to discovering the answers and am excited about the journey and where it will take me. I can tell you that I have experienced a freedom like never before in this simple faith and trust in love. For me, with love being the only answer, everything else seems to have faded away. It’s as though a sort of gateway has opened and I am slowly but surely making my way through whatever is awaiting me. I’m not sure what to expect, and somehow it doesn’t seem to matter. I have faith in the process, I trust in me, and I believe in love.
