You came here to love one another and to be
In alignment with nature. You came to have fun
On your fabulous journey through life. You came here
To learn all about love – the opposite of fear.
You are love, so the learning that needs to be done
Is of yourself which is in others what you see.
It’s your nature to love – even the rotten one
Who always manages to get on your bad side.
That one is a big advantage to your growing.
Are you moved to focus on your inner knowing
When you can’t love the bastard despite having tried?
You can do nothing with the momentum begun.
It’s not that you are wrong about the awfulness
Of this person. It’s that you’re misunderstanding
Their value to you in helping you to decide
How you want things. In this way, you are not denied
The thoughts that lead to your consciousness expanding.
Negative feelings you do not want to express.
You came here to love. You did not come to surround
Yourself with loving people. You knew there would be
People who make it difficult. These are the ones,
Who through your attention to them, will offer tons
Of resistance, but you can respond lovingly.
Where you least may expect love is where it is found.
