This is not an ordinary journey. It asks you to frequent places you’d prefer to avoid. The awareness of who you are in every circumstance is not comfortable at first.
There is only one thing to pack. It is called acceptance. There are at least ten to leave behind:
-reasons – any
You see, on this trip you’ll confront yourself in every disguise. You’ll look like lovers, cheaters, liars, bosses, strangers, bullies, friends, parents, siblings, children, people you’ve trusted and those you’ve hated. Don’t be fooled. It is you every time. In each meeting you’ll think the circumstances differ and the questions asked of you are many. In truth, there is only one question and it concerns just one being. “Do you love me?”
As you move from place to place and person to person, understand that in every utterance and with every interaction – this same question is before you. As you begin to see the language for what it is, and hear the “soul talk” that is universally understood, you’ll comprehend an even greater truth – “you do” (love you). For to love you, is to love me, and I have felt your love. We are One.
There is no shame or blame or fault in love. To love is really the only point. The rest? Drama, window dressing and imaginary monsters and masters under your bed. These are the playthings of your ego self. They are interesting and fun for awhile. They are absorbing; fully formed bridges that move us from place to place. They are not destinations.
“Do you love me?” is the question. “I do” is the answer. Now, with an awareness of love – proceed. Which direction would love turn? What would love say? What would love hold onto? What would love do to whomever was loved? Each of these questions is answered within. This journey is entirely self-directed. Your heart knows the way.
Once you accept each version you encounter, the road smooths out, the weather clears and the food tastes better. There is no bitterness left in your mouth and no emotional debt weighing down your footsteps. You are unencumbered.
Acceptance of who you are asks you to first acknowledge your many disguises. No more pretending. The charade is over. Every inch of you is out there and its all okay. Perfection does not follow any blueprint “thought up” with your mind. Perfection is drawn in your heart, and your heart has not been trained. It doesn’t stay within the lines or even understand the need for any of them. It simply loves. As you move further along, you’ll feel the intelligence of its method.
To your rational mind – this Agape trip is nonsense. There are reasons and deadlines, lies and faults – each of them holding you up. You’ll have to let them go in order to proceed. To accept without blame or “but”, every “other” version you’ve met on the path – this is agape. See me with all of my “faults” and know that I am you. I will stand in your way until you recognize yourself.
Then, once accepted, I’ll join you. Together we’ll reach the Awareness Field and notice the absence of mirrors. There we’ll finally see each other. There, we will know Agape. We’ll look into each others eyes and accept ourselves without hesitation. We are the Ones we’ve been waiting for.
I love you. See you tomorrow.
