Return To Love

Continued from yesterday…

The third step to ending guilt is to:

Quickly return to love when guilt seeks entrance into your thoughts.

Through daily loving-kindness meditation, your mind is renewed, guilt comes to an end, and new instincts of peace, grace, and love emerge naturally and effortlessly from within.

Richard Rohr, a Franciscan priest, puts it this way:

“You accept being accepted—for no reason and by no criteria whatsoever! To put it another way, what I let God see and accept in me also becomes what I can see and accept in myself. And even more, it becomes that whereby I see everything else. This is the glue that binds the universe of persons together. Such utterly free and gratuitous love is the only love that validates, transforms, and changes us at the deepest levels of consciousness. It is what we all desire and what we were created for. Once we allow it for ourselves, we will almost naturally become a conduit of the same for others. In fact, nothing else will attract us any more or even make much sense.”
