All-Encompassing Love

"It matters not how much another loves you. If you do not love you, another's love to you is useless, for you do not absorb it. If you absorbed it, you would know self-love. When another loves you and you do not love yourself, you have set up barriers there; and the love they pour out to you, while it feels good for the moment, it is like going to the sea, where, instead of immersing yourself into the waters, you touch it with your toes or fingers and you say, 'Ah behold, I have been in the sea!' - You have not been in the sea. That is what it is like to be loved when you do not allow that love to awaken, within you, your own value.

None of you here is comfortable with being loved. Did you know that? You are more comfortable loving somebody else than being loved. You find it easier to say, 'I love you' to someone than to have them tell you, 'I love you.' If someone were to say to you , 'I love you,' you would think: 'That's nice... if they really knew me, it wouldn't happen, They only love me because they think I'm this-way or that-way or because I have thus-and-such. But they don't really love me.' Know you why you think like that? ...because you do not really love yourselves.

God is constantly telling you that He loves you. He says it through other people, creatures, pets you have, the beautiful days He pours out to you, your experiences that cause you to grow. Through a thousand, thousand ways, every day of your life, God says, 'I love you.' You take every one of them, you enjoy them for a moment, and then they are lost to you because you do not internalize it and say: I am loved; and I love me; and I accept myself for I am God out-pictured.

All-encompassing love is the most difficult thing for the Soul to acquire because in order for the Soul to acquire it, the Soul must forget all of the error perceptions that it has taken unto itself from the past. Unconditional love is much easier to be had, for, everyone loves someone at some point unconditionally. You all have experienced that. But, all-encompassing love has escaped you thus far. Even those of you who say you love animals, love nature, love this, and love that, have little prejudices. You all have people you do not love, or you have people whose ways of doing things you do not like. But, most of all, you do not love who you are and what you do.

There is not one of you who goes through one day without some self-condemning thought. If you do not express it to yourself, then you will do something to get someone else to express it to you."
