When it comes to the matter of love, absence makes the heart grow fonder. When two people in love become separated, they desire strongly to be reunited. Their love builds and the longing to once again be together stirs into their souls. When I think of our relationship to the Creator, I see this same kind of deep and profound love. We desire to be with the Creator yet, it is said, the Creator wishes to be with us even more. During times of trouble and adversities, we can often times feel a great distance from the Light. It is during these times that we develop a greater desire to unite with it. This desire to reunite with the Creator is our journey in life. Like two people in love who have been separated, every moment is spent attempting to reunite — searching for a way back to each other. This week, we prepare our minds, bodies, and spirits to unite fully with the Creator. We prepare to rejoin the greatest love of all time — the love between our souls, and the Lightforce of God.
