I loaned a friend a book a few years back, and it got returned to me this week.
So, this morning I opened it again. It had been a book I sought when confused,
and I wondered what it might say to me. I was pretty casual about it, not looking
for anything in particular. Here’s a line that stopped me and I want to share with
“your planet was formed with love
to honor the forgetting of who you are,
so that love might experience itself
where love seems not to be.
The pain in your world is
the voice of forgetting.”
As I typed those lines, I began immediately think I had read it wrong!
…..’formed with love to honor the forgetting’?
How could that align with the last lines that said the pain of our world
is the voice of forgetting?
Let me go to something I’ve heard people say about difficult people
in their lives: “that person was my teacher”.
Ugh! No way! I could hear myself saying to myself.
I do not want to embrace what had been a real travail. I want the
teaching to come from inspiration. Yet, earlier this year I had found a
difficult situation to be the opening for a freedom I had not even
known I sought.
So, for me today, the line in that original quote above that sticks
with me is “where love seems not to be”.
I have no wise words about that, I just mention it in passing, something
to think about.
(The quote was from Emmanuel’s Book Two, The Choice for Love,
channelled by Pat Rodegast , and compiled in book form by PAT
RODEGAST and JUDITH STANTON.)
with love …
