So many of you have experienced things that were masquerading as love, that weren’t love at all. Again we say, love does not hurt, love does not reject, love does not betray, love does not judge or control another. The hurtful experiences that you may have had are caused by the absence of love, not by love itself.
So we urge you to redefine what love is through your wisdom and new perspective. What is your new definition of love? Can you see now that love only includes, uplifts, supports, celebrates, encourages, nurtures, understands and connects? Once you are clear about what love really is, you are far better able to see situations in their truth, and will never confuse the absence of love for real love ever again. ~Archangel Gabriel
