Love Created You Like Itself
Love created you like Itself.
There is nothing else you could ever be
When you hold a grievance
Or any thought that causes you distress
It causes you such pain and discomfort
Because you are living
Against the love that you ARE.
Love holds no grievances.
Cause you inner conflict between peace and attack
And this results in pain and suffering.
So why do we hold onto such thoughts?
Because we see ourselves as weakened
By someone else’s words or actions.
We think they have hurt us somehow
And have successfully diminished us.
And so we think we must attack
To defend ourselves
And “equalize” the situation.
Love does not attack
Because It sees no need to do so.
Love knows nothing can ever harm
What is eternally whole and complete.
Love knows it is utterly useless to attack
What is in total Union with Itself.
The Love that you are
Is your strength
Because it is undivided and perfect.
Learn what your happiness is.
Attack and grievances have never brought you happiness.
These thoughts hide the Light in you
And cause you pain and suffering.
Do not be tempted to think your joy
Comes from denying the Source of All Joy within.
Nothing in the world outside you has the power
To remove your Joy.
Do not give it that power
By imagining you are diminished
In any way by outside circumstances.
Your joy comes from your decision
To stop trying to change the past
And accept what you hold within now.
You have never left your Source of joy.
And so it cannot be outside you.
It shines outward from within you.
And the world you see outside yourself
Will reflect the joy you now recognize is yours.
Your outer world
Will align with your inner abundance.
You will have claimed the abundance of your Source within
Instead of having grievances against it
And blocking it from coming to you.
And that will make all the difference.
