The book A Course of Love describes the union between mind and heart. This is wholeheartedness. It leads you as a reader through the personal self to the true Self and on to the co-creation of a new world. You are offered a transformative experience through "The forty days and the forty nights" and a direct relationship with God within us.
It sometimes happens that I think of myself as a butterfly and when I read Day 24 in "The Forty Days and Forty Nights" I am reminded of the development or potential within each person.
"You are the caterpillar, the cocoon and the butterfly. It is in this way that you are many Selves as well as one Self. You are a Self with many forms. The form you possess holds all your potential manifestations in the same way that the caterpillar holds all its potential manifestations.”
"The potential is what exists. It exists as the power and energy, the spirit within you. It doesn't wait for anything. It just is.”
“You could think of your body as the cocoon, the carrier of your potential. You could think of the butterfly as your spirit, revealed only after the potential has been developed and released.”
It is wonderful to read in the book, because I feel inside that it is something unknown that should be known. Something that I have within me that is about to be born, to be known. Something important is on the way and it feels exciting and meaningful to see what will happen.
