[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Love wishes to be known

Love wishes to be known, completely understood and shared. It has no
secrets; nothing that it would keep apart and hide. It walks in sunlight,
open-eyed and calm, in smiling welcome and in sincerity so simple and so
obvious it cannot be misunderstood. ACIM

Love has no secrets I remember my professor telling me that anything that I wish to hide has no
love in it- and we were talking about my reluctance to publish a paper.
When he said it to me I stopped for a moment, I thought it was one of the
best things I heard all week more than any of the lectures I had attended. As soon as he said it, my question-o-meter started beeping Prof, what do you mean? Anything that you feel the need or have to hide has no love in it, think
about why you do not want to publish this paper and you may see that you do
not love what you are doing I think I can use this piece of wisdom for everything Prof Do as you please, if you have to hide anything in your life, or in fact,
anyone, then that is not love

I remembered this on a trip when one woman reminded me that I had a
responsibility to shine my light no matter how uncomfortable it made me or
the people around me feel - stop the dimming

How many times have we decided that hiding things and people in the name of
love was a good idea? How many times have we decided that we would stay quiet to keep the peace? How many times have we decided to withhold rather than share? Love wishes to be known and shared.

Love walks in sunlight and I am love!

Peace
