      Re: Dr. Hawkins on Love.

      There is absolutely nothing in ordinary
      human experience to compare with the
      joy of the presence of the Love of God.
      No sacrifice is too great nor effort
      too much in order to realize that
      Presence.


      To understand the nature of God, it is
      necessary only to know the nature of
      love itself. To truly know love is to
      know and understand God; and to know
      God is to understand love.


      The experience of the presence of God
      is available and within at all times,
      but awaits choice. That choice is made
      only by surrendering everything other
      than peace and love to God. In return,
      the divinity of the Self reveals Itself
      as ever present but not experienced
      because it has been ignored or
      forgotten, or one has chosen otherwise.


      Spiritual truth, then, is universally
      true and without variation through time
      or place. It always brings peace,
      harmony, accord, love, compassion, and
      mercy. Truth can be identified by
      these qualities. All else is the
      invention of the ego.


      Peace is literally a choice and a
      decision, although not a popular one in
      our society despite all the rhetoric
      about the term. The decision to
      overlook the seeming inequities of life
      instead of reacting to them is a choice.


      Q: What prayers are useful?

      A: Ask to be the servant of the Lord,
      a vehicle of divine love, a channel of
      God's will. Ask for direction and
      divine assistance and surrender all
      personal will through devotion.
      Dedicate one's life to the service of
      God. Choose love and peace above all
      other options. Commit to the goal of
      unconditional love and compassion for
      all life in all its expression and
      surrender all judgment to God.


      At first, spiritual purification seems
      difficult, but eventually, it becomes
      natural. To consistently choose love,
      peace, or forgiveness leads one out of
      the house of mirrors. The joy of God
      is so exquisite that any sacrifice is
      worth the effort and seeming pain.
