”We are to look for God in each other and love this God, forgetting all else.“  — Ernest Holmes, ”The Science of Mind“ 

Sometimes our hearts get bruised or broken.  Our minds create an endless loop of “what ifs” around the person or the situation.  We take things personally, and cannot see our way clear of the maze of hurt, confusion, and sadness.  This is the exact moment we take a step back and realize that Love is truly all there is.  So take a moment with me and just know:

Divine Love Intelligence governs the universe.  I am part of that Love, as I accept and know that it surrounds me, and I am fueled, informed, and sourced by It.  I become as One with the source of my being, in perfect alignment, and everything else just falls away.  I am now in a place of pure love and joy, in a place of perfect peace and harmony.  I surrender the hurt, confusion, and sadness, and the healing process begins.  Taking a moment of reflection, I look at the situation, any other person, and most importantly myself, and forgive anything that may have contributed to the pain.  I release and let go, feeling only the Presence of Divine Love.  A soothing balm of love descends upon me, as well as anyone else involved, and the way is made clear.  Focusing solely on the feeling of this love, my heart is made whole again.  Gratitude fills me up, as I embrace this truth.  Thank you, dear Love Intelligence, for lighting the way.  And so it is.
