The journey of life
is the unfolding into deeper levels of unconditional love,
and the many different qualities of love you experience
are the paths that you take on this journey

The greatest journey we embark on in this life is the journey into the depths of love, from our minds into our hearts.  We will be diving into the ocean of wisdom, of inner knowing, and of awakening – awakening to the deep, unfathomable truth of who we are.  We will explore the qualities of love we need for our particular path at this time.

Our Friend in Spirit, who dwells in a golden sphere of light, will illuminate this theme encouraging us to surrender even more deeply into the depths of unconditional love, where the journey itself becomes guided by the wisdom of spirit.
