The greatest barrier to discovering this blissful state of knowing real love is fear. It is the journey of the soul to learn how to love by becoming aware of what it is not! It is the process of elimination, my friends, to become aware of all those things that do not feel good and to let go of your fears and expectations and let real love settle in and become a part of you. Real love is freedom and this is what you have been given by the Creator—the freedom to love and to choose your own path. To willfully choose the path of love over all other alternatives will always bring you to a greater understanding of Divine Love and godlikeness.
