The Essential Existential Fact

"Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we have learned here. The spiritual journey is the relinquishment--or unlearning--of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts. Love is the essential existential fact. It is our ultimate reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life."

--Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love 

I believe what Marianne Williamson says here: Our truest self (you know the way-down-deep-in-our-core self that's nestled beneath thick burlap layers of expectation and pretense) is composed of love. 100% solid gold love. How does knowing this change how you move through the world?
