“To love yourselves is the final hurdle,
The definitive frontier of humanity.”
“Let me remind you,
Love is not something to be earned.
It cannot be judged,
Meted out, or taken away.
Love is something that you are.”
Immanuel’s Book III pp 143, 150
These quotes taken from “Immanuel’s Book III, What is an Angel Doing Here?” belong to a series of books compiled by Pat Rodegast and Judith Stanton. The passages in these books flow like poetry and are replete with profound wisdom such as the quotes above. Reading any chapter provided by Immanuel is like walking through the Smithsonian Art Museum, where precious masterpieces are hung row upon row, and room after room. The richness of the experience is intense, dense, and elevating. For those who have never heard of the Immanuel’s Book Series, I would highly recommend them as a life-long resource for comfort and peace.
These particular quotes remind us that we are here to be love, rather than to earn love. Like a lighthouse shining on a dark sea, we have within us the innate memory of and the ability to share real love. Through love, the gravity, entropy, chaos, violence, ignorance, fear and illness that are part of this world can be transformed.
