At one time we understood our Higher Power as our Divine Parent who was in charge of taking care of our every need. Just like a parent sees to all the needs of an infant, The Divine feeds us, bathes us, clothes us, provides shelter, and protects us. As we grow, and as some of these things seem to be unmet, we question whether The Divine has forgotten or abandoned us. We seem to be on our own.
But, Love knows when to parent and when not to parent. The Divine knows when it is time for us to mature and make decisions on our own. Hopefully, we will make wise decisions, but whatever we choose, we are permitted by Divine Love to find our way in the world, to search for the path of Light that makes meaning and sense to us.
Love is seen as caring for needs, but it is also seen as freedom. Sometimes parents of children are still taking care of them when they are thirty, forty, fifty years old or older. The expression, “If you love something, set it free,” is accurate. But the follow-up idea that if it was truly yours, it will return to you, is false. If you love, it is yours no matter what decision it makes. Love doesn’t cease to be love simply because it is not reciprocated. Love is. Sometimes the feelings aren’t always positive, but love is still love.
