The Hidden Secret of the Ages
Beloved masters, all sentient souls must follow their own particular destinies, specially designed paths that lead to illumination and reintegration with the divine self. The lessons you are learning and perfecting will be your contribution to the whole. Within these seemingly painful experiences are the jewels of wisdom you will need to fulfill your particular segment of the grand design, so do not judge yourself or your progress by that of other people. Do not gaze in awe or with envy at the talents and gifts others have mastered and manifested, for within you are treasures just as great awaiting discovery.
The Nature of True Love
You are deep in the midst of discovering a truth that has eluded humanity for hundreds of thousands of years, a secret that has been deeply hidden in the illusionary reality of the third- or fourth-dimensional world of existence: the truth about the nature of true love — what it is and what it is not. Love is not just a sensation of physical emotions or an intense desire to own or possess another in order to feel a sense of wholeness. True love is not the thrill of conquest or obtaining what seems to be a great prize at the time, which often ends up being a great burden instead. Love as an external focus — exterior to you — will always bring a sense of vulnerability, for the ego-desire body will constantly seek validation from someone or something. Love is neither self-sacrifice nor victimhood, where you give away so much of yourself that you no longer have an identity of your own. Love is not enabling those around you to dishonor you and abuse you as they reinforce your own projections of unworthiness. How can you expect anyone else to treat you with respect and love if you are not willing to set boundaries and send clear messages of love, acceptance, and worthiness for yourself as well as for others?
You must remove the etheric barriers or filters you have placed around your heart and emotions if you are to be able to receive and radiate the higher frequencies of heart/soul love. You must confront your fears about losing those you love and let go of the disappointments and betrayals of the past, which often manifest as a fear of intimacy or of making a commitment to another. As you learn to believe in and trust yourself, you will develop a fundamental trust in others, and others will place their faith and trust in you, for trust begets trust.
