The Most Important Thing That You Could Ever Learn
The most important thing that you could ever learn is that YOU are loved, honored, and adored by All-That-Is-Holy. Nothing you’ve ever done or ever will do could earn this love. Nothing you’ve ever done or not done ever lost this love. Nothing you’ll ever do or not do will ever lose this love.
This love is a “given.” That’s the way it’s been set up. But you have the power to accept this love or reject it. If you reject it, you reject yourself, but it doesn’t reject you. This love is always there, waiting for you to accept it and yourself.
To accept this love, simply tell yourself, over and over, “I am loved” until you come to believe it, because it’s true. Everything else in your life will improve when you truly know that you are loved, no matter what.
