Recognize all that love is not.

First realize everything love is not and then the reality of love, which is no illusion, will be seen for what it is. by Tim Christopher

Only when you have recognized all that love Is not
will you begin to understand what love really is.
And only then will you be in a position to stop yourself
from looking to the illusion of love as what you want
and learn to choose the reality of love, just as it is,
as what you want instead.
In this lies freedom, limitless joy and the escape
from the attraction of death.

God is love and only love. His love is the sum and substance of all reality, outside of which there is nothing to be found.

“Love is not learned. Its meaning lies within itself. And learning ends when you have recognized all it is not.” 
T-18.IX.12

“God’s Will for you is perfect happiness… Happiness is an attribute of love. It cannot be apart from it.  Nor can it be experienced where love is not. Love has no limits, being everywhere. And therefore joy is everywhere as well.”
