It seems that all my life I have really only been focused upon LOVE – others may disagree (lol)
I knew a burning in my heart for IT when I was very small. From the moment I heard about the story of love I have followed it like a puppy to all sorts of places and people and experiences only to find that the greatest love that I could ever hope to know was inside me all along. So cliched, we have all heard this rumour, but thank goodness it is true.
For me it has been like a burning, a heat in me, a song in my ear, a gentle touch of God upon me, yet I have also known the strong and sometimes volatile pull of love, that was not. I have grown to accept that the only thing worth extending out to others (palms up and outstretched) and the only thing that one is truly filled by, is to share the light and be example of love for all. This does not make me weak or naive it makes me still and strong of knowing. It is freeing and releases you from attachment, from fear-based thought forms and actions.
I am stepping more and more into this every day. To release myself from the chains I have shackled myself with.
But what is love?
How does one extend and share something that at times suggests we step into pain and fear?
Firstly, this is not love – love does not know fear or pain. Do not be fooled by any kind of illusion of love that plays any part in judgement, pain, fear, self-abuse, regret, shame, guilt or the like. 😊Oops!
Source is love. Whatever you want to call it or know it as.
BUT love to me is these things:
Compassion/kindness/gratefulness/acceptance/patience/joy/trust/knowing and whilst I can hear you say that these things are hard to do, especially when you have been hurt, the moment you enter into any fear-based games from the first list above, you have removed yourself from love to fear.
Try it. Test it if you like. If you are prepared to really take an honest look at your actions and thoughts, you will see into yourself and how your wounds have altered your current lens. All relationships were intended to be modelled upon the relationship and love that Source designed for us to have with it.
“Relationships were not created to hurt ourselves through them” ACIM
To be honest most of us in some way are in relationships that do not model this kind of love. We must understand that we have stepped out from under loves velvety veil and into fear and suffering. I ask myself when I begin to suffer – “why are you allowing yourself to suffer?” The responsibility is my own.
For me, Love is about having an intimate relationship with yourself that activates healing and a deeper remembering of who you are.
So, today I say out loud: “I will step out of fear and into love!”
This is the only way possible for us to heal this planet and ourselves. There is nothing worth living for if it is not for LOVE.
“A life without love is of no account. Don’t ask yourself what kind of love you should seek, spiritual or material, divine or mundane, Eastern or Western. Divisions only lead to more divisions. Love has no labels, no definitions. It is what it is, pure and simple. Love is the water of life. And a lover is a soul of fire! The universe turns differently when fire loves water.”
