How to Fall In Love

I'm reading Neale Donald Walsch's final book in his Conversations With God series, Home With God. The subject is one that inspires humanity's greatest fear and fascination: the experience we call Death.

The book is an extraordinary prescription for LIFE. I'm especially moved by the following passage where God speaks about "whole person centering," or living fully in the Now Moment. Looking deeply into your own eyes, or the eyes of any other living being, is a portal to the Divine, because the eyes are the windows of the soul. I know that when I was blessed to stare into the eyes of Gaia, a magical cat that shared the property I lived on from 1999-2000, I felt complete communion.

"It is especially difficult to look another human in the eye for any period of time at all without beginning to fall in love. That is why people look away from each other so quickly. They don't dare look each other right in the eye for very long. The love that will follow will overwhelm them. Yet it is because they do not know what to do with that love that they are overwhelmed.

"The moment you surrender to love and allow it to lead you to exactly where your soul wants to go, you will have no difficulty. All struggle then will cease, and you will know Oneness."
