I believe that we are ONE with God connected at all levels. Free will enables us to choose to recognize that connection and be our higher selves or not. No matter what choice we make God is always there waiting in the wings or on our shoulder-- just as any good caring parent is. God's love is grander than anything souls in human form can imagine. I am a part of that love and when I recognize that I am a part of ALL, I am more inclined to act in love no matter the circumstances.
