The following questions and or insights  can provide shortcuts to connecting with the Universal Truth:

Love is Divine Power

Did I act with love?

Did I dwell on heartaches today?

Do I appreciate the love I carry?

Am I forgiving?

Do I really want to surrender my will or am I still caught up in illusion?

Have I moved beyond where self love means self indulgence?
