Love Quest Day 1

Welcome to our Quest for Agape. 

To love without condition is surrender.  It is ultimate truth.  There is nothing that stands in the way of this love; nothing to hide, to protest, to blame, to judge, to avoid.  There is nothing to risk.

This is not to say that it feels this way, for it does not.  On your way to Agape you’ll want to hide.  You may perceive hiding as the safest route to take.  Once taken, you’ll realize something; you are not in Agape, you are merely alone.  Although love begins within, this is a physical existence.  It is meant to be lived out loud, with all of us.

In 2011 these Quests were begun as a path to discover self love and self forgiveness.  After 2 years of monthly journeys, we reached a point of understanding.  Intellectually we comprehended our own worth. 

Yet today, 1 ½ years later, do we experience everyday Agape?  What does that look like anyway?  It is there I’d like to take us.

We have all chosen beautifully. Our life is made up of mirrors. We are surrounded by each other; gauges for the degree of love which is present.  Look around.  If someone enrages you internally, you’ve seen your own self-loathing. 

This is how it works.  As long as there exists in your heart any reason to hate or to be annoyed or to be afraid or to judge or to blame – you do not love.  We are all lovable.  How is this true?  It is true because we are One.

Unity is the answer for every conundrum.  Recently I experienced physical evidence for this.  An accident left me physically, but temporarily, sort of deformed facially.  It’s been 3 weeks and part of my face is still black and blue, while there is a lump protruding from my forehead.  Only now do people not look away from my face in public.  Three weeks ago this was not the case.

The thing is, I have not changed on the inside.  I AM me.  I feel whole and attractive and strong and love and the same.  In the eyes of almost everyone I’ve met, I am not.  I have not been offended by their discomfort and avoidance, just curious.  After many repeated and uncomfortable encounters it became perfectly clear who we are.

We are self defined.

The awkward feelings and silent judgments of each stranger I encountered say nothing about who I am – but volumes about who they are.  How we react and feel about what and who we encounter outside of our bathroom mirror is a clear image of who we are; clearer than any piece of glass can provide.  I was a problem for everyone but me these last few weeks. 
I am not diminished by their judgment, while they suffer.  I know I am more than these lumps and bruises.  I am a piece of eternity; whole and beautiful; as are you.

You are a Master; only Masters can incarnate as human.  You have come here to challenge yourself, to see yourself with lumps and bruises and to remember who you are.

Love is not perfectly dressed, photo-shopped, planned, or performed.  It is sometimes lumpy and may leave ugliness on the outside.  Love doesn’t show on the outside.  On the outside is “window dressing”, which is fun and part of being human but not the point of this Quest.  This Quest is about finding what’s beautiful on the inside.  That’s where you are.

Remember.  Remember who you are – a bit of Source who showed up on planet Earth to show us how it’s done. 

You are the One we’ve been waiting for.

See you tomorrow.
