- I have heard you say that love is the thief who puts the knife to your throat. How can I see love in that? I don’t understand.
You can’t; you can’t understand it. It’s impossible, I know.
But I know that it is not real. I know that it’s love. I know that everything is love. I know that everything is taking us back home, to ourselves.
All suffering, all injustice, everything we perceive as wrong, is giving us this human experience. It’s perfect exactly as it is.
I’m not saying that we don’t want the world to change; of course we do. And as we elevate our consciousness, everything that is based on a low vibrational level, like that example that I used, will start to fall away, to disappear. They will not be able to exist in the presence of love.
Just yesterday, a journalist told me a story about that:
Once there was a thief, who stepped onto a train full of people while it waited in a station. He had a revolver, and the passengers were terrified. They all dropped to the floor when he ordered them to. He then commanded them to hand over all of their valuables, threatening to kill anyone who disobeyed. As everyone fished awkwardly in their pockets, one of the passengers - a monk - asked him gently,
“Why are you doing this?”
The monk’s sincere gaze moved the thief. He sat down by his side and began to tell him his story. He had lost his job, he had no money to feed his family and he lived in a very poor village. As he told everyone his pains, he broke down and began to cry. He put down his gan as he wiped away his tears.
Everyone on the train gave him money.
Love is always bigger.
People are always just looking for love.
Sometimes we do the strangest things, the most violent things, but they are actions that come from fear; the fear of losing something. The fear of losing love. The source is always the same.
It doesn’t matter where you are, or what you have gone through in your life, you can always return home, to the love. Always. You just need to make that choice.
We all have the same consciousness, all of us. We have had different educations, different economic situations, different opportunities, but we can always create what we need to come back home, to ourselves. That is what everyone wants in the end. That is why we are all here.
You want something.
You want to find something.
All humans want to find something.
And do you know what it is?
