PONDER on THIS for Monday, September 15th, 2008 by Alan Cohen in DARE TO BE YOURSELF

“Many people in this world are somewhat paranoid, afraid that the world is out to get them. Actually, the world is out to get us, but not in the way we believe. There is a conspiracy (conspiracy means to “breathe together”) working behind the scenes of our life. But this conspiracy is not to hurt us; it is one of great love. God is out to do everything She can to make us happy. This conspiracy is always working, even in spite of our insane efforts to deny love’s presence.

Amazing as it might sound, we have unknowingly been involved in a counter-conspiracy to love. Many of us have been actively engaged in doing everything we can to avoid peace, shield healing from our hearts, and convince ourselves that hell is heaven. We are expert at finding fault with our gifts, sabotaging our success, and seeing the empty tenth of the glass instead of the nine parts that are full. But there is hope. The outcome is guaranteed: the conspiracy to love will succeed, basically because God is playing on that team (and He wrote the plot). Although the timing of our surrender to love is up to us, the final scene is certain: we will realize that the universe is a manifestation of love, and we are in God’s graceful keeping.”

Alan Cohen, in “Dare to Be Yourself”
