Love is always the foundation upon which all is built. There is not one process that did not begin in love and will not end in love.
The truth is not hard or cold, ever. The truth always falls back to love. If something appears hard or cold, it is an appearance. Appearances can last a long time; appearances can seem very real as we buy into them and believe our own interpretations about them. We only have the power to do so because we are a part of the One sovereign consciousness, and we can choose to even deeply experience a temporary interpretation for a while. But the greater truth, the ever-lasting unshakable bedrock of all of existence, is love! Freedom, joy, and love is the true root of all creation.
Every single thing always, always occurs as a result of the unfathomable depths of unconditional love giving rise to it. Reality systems come and go, complex patterns in the tapestry spun out of love, and spun because of love. The tapestry may contain horrifying images; but no more than the greatness of love that gave rise to them and expands its own creative depths even through them.
We are free to buy into our interpretations of less-than-love. We are so free we can do even that. But we cannot ever truly escape the truth of the freedom, joy, and love of our own being. Even as we take temporary experiential sojourns seemingly far away from that freedom and joy, we are still within it. Love cannot be overcome, and we are love- so what shall we fear?
