Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book “The Course of Love” by Alain De Botton.
Today I pray, “Dear God, Is life a love classroom? It seems to be. Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to reveal this passage:
“By the standards of most love stories, our own, real relationships are almost all damaged and unsatisfactory. No wonder separation and divorce so often appear inevitable. But we should be careful not to judge our relationships by the expectations imposed on us by a frequently misleading aesthetic medium. The fault lies with art, not life. Rather than split up, we may need to tell ourselves more accurate stories — stories that don’t dwell so much on the beginning, that don’t promise us complete understanding, that strive to normalize our troubles and show us a melancholy yet hopeful path through the course of love.”
—ALAIN DE BOTTON
Our free will aligns more with Divine will more and more at this time in human history. And our karmic will may heal in this. And when there is a change in karmic will being healed simultaneously across dimensions, we, by free will, change our entire state of being. As Divine will remains, once we align free will with Divine will, there is a less dramatic relationship story as a collective humanity. In this less dramatic relationship story, we join the melancholy hopeful path through the course of love. Bliss can reside in the melancholy yet hopeful path, yet it is a bliss of existential authenticity, not fake karmic drama. True bliss!
