This is a line from A Course in Miracles that has stood out for me over the years. I never thought I would reach the place where the sentiment evoked in this beauty could rise in my being.
With an ego construct burdened by beliefs in 'not important' and 'left out of the love', it seemed far fetched to think that the day could come where I could witness a favored friend or special one engage and commune with another and not feel that familiar angst and agitation of mind.
But we keep doing our work, meeting the pieces that Life never fails to expertly dole out, going in and out of the 'karmic car wash', as a friend of mine aptly called it recently.
And to your great surprise, one day you find yourself looking at a scene, or hearing something that never failed to upset you and there is no reaction. And it is a neutrality and nonreactiveness that feels like a quiet slice of Heaven, because of what has come and gone for years, decades even.
And you Realize, you Know, you could never be left out of the love. That love being shared before your eyes, only awakens it more in yourself. Love is in the air. We are love. Feeling left out of it is only experienced in the land of illusion, whose vaporous state we are each brought to see, in our own way, in our own timing.
Thankfully, gratefully, it is so.
