The sorrow of Unrequited Love – 1

How often, and this during a single day, do we either actively or passively fail to truly and genuinely requite the Infinite Love of God the Father? That is how many times do we actually select, consciously or otherwise during one day, to prefer our own will over His Divine Will? How often therefore, during a day, do we proceed without any second thought to plunge the unbearably piercing arrow of pain and sorrow into the Core of Our Father’s Heart, regardless of both the cruelty inherent and our insistence on proceeding despite knowing the reality of such cruelty? How many times do we either heedlessly or wilfully set aside both the Divine mandate and our intrinsic need to love Our Father above everything and everyone else, in order to prefer some selfish motivation originating from our selves? Thus how can we profess day in and day out to love Our Father, which most of us seem to encounter little-to-no difficulty in doing, when many of us continue acting in the abovementioned manner? What are we really waiting for in order to put our money where our mouths are – that is to start sincerely opening our hearts to both receive and requite Our Father’s Infinite Love?

God the Father has never asked us for much, neither historically nor presently. All that He desires – indeed that He has ever desired – is true intimacy with His children on earth: that, at least, we accept Him as our One True and Only Father, and that we start learning to love Him intimately and with the utmost simplicity. Have we truly become so callous, cynical, and stone-hearted that it is of no import to us whether we respond to His plea or otherwise? Our Father – the Alpha and Omega of Creation – is presently acting like a veritable beggar Who Is literally stooping down to plead with His children to return to Him. Why do we keep unhesitatingly and obstinately wounding Our most beloved Father by our ongoing refusal to give Him our hearts? God the Father’s Name is not solely Infinite Love: it is also Unrequited Love. And this because of our hardness of heart and mind, both on our individual and collective levels.
