Why do we shy away from loving another of the same sex? I believe it is years of programming through the centuries, not just from this lifetime. In early days of our civilization, homosexuality was open and practiced in many early societies. It was not hidden, but allowed to run free reign. Then Christianity came in with the Bible and what was purported to be “God’s word.” I say purported because I have been in the presence of God, and that energy loves each one of us unconditionally, totally unconditionally. I have to laugh when I think of God saying; “No, you cannot enter Heaven because you are a homosexual; because the God I know would never discriminate. Love is love no matter how it is practiced.
All of us in our incarnations have been gay in some form or another (from now on I will use the word “free”). It is not who we are so much as a person, but the lessons we have chosen to learn. Maitreya told me that those who in the past have persecuted free people will probably choose to come back in their next incarnation as free themselves. It was not until I watched a pornographic film that I came to realize that some people who are not free behave worse sexually than those who are free! What does it matter that people who love each other are of the same sex? It is love after all and, to be honest, I have seen more love in free couples than I have in many heterosexual couples, whether they are married or not. When I think back to the way I was, I am ashamed that I acted as I did over that friend (whose name was Elizabeth). She proclaimed her love for me, and I just ran away in fear and embarrassment. I wonder how long it had taken her to speak those words and how I hurt her by doing what I did.
