But whether you are reading this in February or July, the topic of love can be equally charged and confusing. So, what is love?
Love is not any of the gifts, activities or behaviors that companies market to you. It is not the act of contorting yourself, your beliefs or your desires to please someone else…anyone else. It also is not religion or any other set of beliefs or behaviors.
And the big one… It is not tied to any of your relationships. You are a part of All That Is, the awe-inspiring, all-encompassing creative expression that includes each unique person, planet, flower, mountain, sunset, laugh…everything! We are love, made from the expression of love.
And your experience of yourself of love can be shared, but at its core it is the solo unique expression of your true nature. That is the simple, vast, complex truth.
There is so much energy coming at you in in the name of love trying make you behave in ways that please other people, or buy things that benefit the company selling the idea of love to you. If love cannot be defined for you by anyone else then you are free to just be you.
No one else can live the life you came here to live. But that can also feel a little daunting. Because the infinite wisdom of the Creative Force designed this human experience so that we have to turn our attention inward to find true fulfillment and love.
Remember that you are love. The same love that is the Instigating Force driving all of creation. Therefore, you can never be separated from It. You can forget your connection, but it is never lost and you need no special training or ritual to be aware of what you are and the wisdom that is your birthright.
Here is a link to a video related to this post that includes a guided experience that you can use to help you start your journey, and to a PDF that outlines the exercises from the video. Take a moment to still yourself and do whatever practice you use to have a dialogue with yourSelf and see what comes up.
Ask yourSelf, or whatever wise aspect of All That Is you connect to most easily: And if so, what does that mean, and what does it look like and feel like inside of me and in my life? Be in relationship in this process and share your doubts, fears, frustrations and confusion about why you sometimes feel disconnected from love.
You can visualize the conversation in a meditative state, do automatic writing to share your feelings and then write what you receive in return, or speak out loud and then be still to hear or sense the loving response. One thing to note: The voice of Truth is always loving, even when it says difficult things.
If you hear judgmental or mean responses you are likely still running through the tapes in your head. Recenter and try connecting again.
You can trust yourself to feel when you are finally dialoguing with the Truth. I would love to hear your insights, questions or frustrations around the topic of love or your experiences with these exercises, so please share in the comments.
