You didn’t come here to master unconditional love. That is where you came from and that is where you will return. You came here to learn personal love. Universal love. Messy love. Sweaty love. Crazy love. Broken love. Whole love. Infused with divinity. Lived through the grace of stumbling. Demonstrated through the beauty of messing up. Often. You didn’t come here to be perfect. You already are. You are here to be gloriously human. Flawed and fabulous. And then to rise again into remembering.” I read her words every day.”  Cayla, 24
