Step 61

Love gives of itself through me.


LOVE GIVES OF ITSELF THROUGH YOU when you are ready to be its vehicle of expression. You do not need to try to be loving to appease a sense of self-inadequacy or guilt. You do not need to try to be loving to win the approval of others. Do not fortify your sense of helplessness or sense of unworthiness by attempting to place a happy or benevolent sentiment upon them. Love within you will express itself, for it is born of Knowledge within you, of which it is a part.

EACH HOUR TODAY AS YOU LOOK UPON THE WORLD, recognize that love within you will speak for itself. If you are without judgment, if you are capable of being with the world as it truly is and if you are capable of being present with others as they truly are, love within you will speak for itself. Do not try to make love speak for you. Do not try to make love express your wishes or your needs, for love itself will speak through you. If you are present to love, then you will be present to the world, and love will speak through you.

Practice 61: Hourly practice.
