1 Corinthians 13:13 | And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
When I was a little girl, I knew that love was the greatest gift of all. Not just any love, a love so powerful and complete that no other could compare. This wasnít something I learned from watching others, it was known from within. At the time I didnít understand where this love came from, but I knew that it was selfless and unconditional.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 ďLove is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.Ē
Love is one of our most basic needs, to be loved so deeply that we are truly content. Unfortunately, few find this type of love. Most of us are left wanting, searching for something we donít remember losing.
We spend our entire lives trying on new personas, partners, and any new fangle thing hoping to make ourselves feel whole, secure, and happy. We expect our mates to make us complete, yet they too are in the same position. Oh sure, some of these things may pacify for a time, but they never reach the depths we need them to and certainly donít create lasting happiness. We end up living in recurring cycles of seeking and disappointment wondering why it is so difficult to feel genuinely loved.
At a soul level we know that we are love, come from love, and exist as a complete male - female spirit. Unfortunately, this doesnít translate to the conscious mind, which is why none of us really understand why we behave the way we do.

Subconsciously, the wound of separation from our Father and Mother causes all the children to feel pain and loss.
This subconscious remembering drives us to search, attempting to fill the void we feel in our hearts.
It is not until we begin to awaken to the truth that we can step out of these cycles to understand the nature of our suffering. Generally, this happens in times of sadness and hardship, we begin to ask questions and seek for answers.
Matthew 7:7 ďAsk and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.Ē
When the Father awakens us and Christ is drawn unto us, the process of healing begins. Our emotional wounds are tended to and we are comforted beyond measure. Through the marriage to Christ we are reconnected back to our unified spirit and we feel complete again.
Our hearts begin to soften, and we become still. We finally feel loved - properly and fully, no longer looking to the outside world to fulfill the needs that only the Father can. When we are genuinely loved, we shift out of fear-survival mode and into one of peace through love and understanding.
Feeling the Fatherís love allows us to trust, and in this trust real faith is built. When you operate from a position of internal knowing rather than matrix learning you become an immovable force. No person or thing can convince you otherwise. With genuine trust, love, and faith you can surrender your will to the Father. This is when you will truly become free and begin the journey home.
To all of those who feel broken and incapable of finding lasting happiness, I urge you to knock on the door Ö..the kingdom is within.
In love and service
