Love is Gentle

God's Love is gentle, like a warm wave washing over us, cleansing us of all our false beliefs that we are not good enough. It can be very difficult for those of us who live in this world to feel the gentleness of this Love, as we live in and we are bombarded by the opposite, which is judgment. Judgment is harsh, regardless of whether it is "minor" or disguised as something else. All judgment is self judgment, even when it appears to be projected to someone or something "outside " of you, and if you can understand this fully, you will save yourself a great deal of angst. But the gentleness of God's Love washes away all of this judgment. It allows us to fully relax into Him, to know that everything will be okay, because everything IS OKAY. It cannot be anything other than perfect. You are not the role you play in this dream. Just as if you are an actor in a play, just as a child plays pretend, the role can be fun if you are aware that it is a role. Or it can be terrifying if you don't realize that it is only a role you are playing. But the role is NOT who you are. You are the Beloved, and God is waiting for you. The gentleness of His Love reminds us of that. Even if the clouds of despair are around you, the light of the Son shines brightly on the other side. When we remember that this brightness is there, it dissipates the clouds. Even if this is only momentary, it is enough, because now we know that the Son is what is real.
