The Most Important Thing

A friend and I were doing creative writing exercises together. We closed the experience with an exercise she had brought called "My Last Lesson" based on the lecture given by Randy Pausch and the book The Last Lecture.

When the timer rang, we set down our pens and began to read what we had written. We both felt that in the end, the most important thing is Love.

Here's mine:

My Last Lesson is that Love is more important than anything. Money is nice to have, material things are good, places are fun to visit, and meals are wonderful. But all is colorless without Love.

Everything and anything can be done with Love. Love with our fellow humans, love with animals, plants -- with any living thing. Just let yourself Love.

And let yourself Be Loved. We work on being the one who's doing the loving and forget it's got to be received as well.

Mostly let the Universe love you. Appreciate everything as a Divine Gift - a gift of Love. If everything is considered as Divine Gifts of Love, the challenges would be smoother, the pains would be bearable, and life would be experienced as the precious gift it is.


I recognize there is One Life – the Divine Life that is everywhere present. It is within us right now. It is Love and Love is all there is.

I declare I am ready and willing to open my heart and live fully. I am open to experience my Divine Self and all the wonders of Loving.
I am the Beloved in whom God is well pleased. I take this to heart and I feel Love as It fills me up and spills out into my world. There is nothing to stop me from experiencing It and sharing It with all.

Love brings me great health in mind, body and emotions. It radiates throughout my financial life, my work life and my relationships. I know this for myself and for everyone I meet. We are all Love in form.

Gratefully I release these words into Spiritual Law knowing it is so and so It is.
