The fear of love is underneath all pain and suffering. Michael is an unlikely angel sent to “give a man back his heart.”
“In my defenselessness my safety lies.” (W-172)
Every personal agenda is a defense against love; a way of protecting against being completely defenseless, of being willing and open to take a leap!
Frank is on a mission to deliver his newly found angel to the tabloid he works for, while Michael has been sent to play cupid for Frank and Dorothy. As Dorothy has had three failed marriages, she is determined not to take a risk in love again. The way to joy and happiness cannot be through anything but love because in truth, that is what you are. You must keep opening up your heart; there can only be mastery through love.
There are no future guarantees with anything! You have to let go of the bargaining thoughts like, “I will open up to love only if I know I will not get hurt, if it is safe, or if I know you are going to stay with me.” There is a plan for your awakening. Giving your life over to purpose will allow Holy Spirit to bring in those who can open your heart up to love, joy and happiness. To the ego, it always seems like something has gone terribly wrong, but Spirit softly says, “No, no, nothing has gone wrong; this is just the way defenses are being loosened.”
