Every moment of every day we weave a story about who we think we are. If we would just rest in the stillness out of which we make the stories, we would really know ourselves. The stories would have no meaning.
When you replace all your thoughts and feelings with love, the past will disappear, taking all your hurt and pain with it.
Love given is also received. It flows back and forth between you and others, expanding and intensifying until everything else disappears.
