This love of you becomes the love of others not because it is the right thing to do in the context of religion or morality, but because as you love yourself you are loving others. It is fact. You are the other. Period. This is what is actually happening on our earth, with all of us a collective whole.
As an organic whole, we have hated ourselves. In that hatred we have participated in a universal self destruction. The means of our deterioration have been warfare; chemical, monetary, psychological and physical control. We as a whole have been a part of it all. Our contribution individually has taken the form of self-loathing.
We are one. Every thought and feeling contributes to the whole. Each judgment and all of the negativity you have thought didn’t matter, because it was only self-directed – has contributed. You are an integral component of the whole that is us.
The systematic manipulation of us was part of the plan. You are here willingly participating in this life to challenge yourself. “What is it possible to create within so much negativity?” The odds of polarity have been stacked against you.
All that is changing now. You are changing that. You are beginning to love. Your light is peeking out from under its covering of darkness and I can see it! Our combined light is brightening this field on which we play.
There is no truth in a polarized life. You have never created alone. What you feel, you see, and all thoughts are creative. We are creating our life, our world, as one.
As we shift from self-hatred to self-love, the entire planet shifts. Eventually, you will witness the effects of your love.
This week I witnessed a miracle. For six months I have been working with someone who openly disliked me. At least that was my interpretation of her hostility. Several days ago she needed a favor and asked me, without agitation, for the first time. I complied, and then I did something I hadn’t before. I sent her love and healing. I am sort of humbled to think I hadn’t thought of this earlier, but I hadn’t. I was mad and stubbornly refused to think of her in any way other than blameful – “She hates me and I don’t know why.”
A day passed and when I saw her next it was as if the light within had been switched on! Her eyes shone, she smiled, her hair was loose and we shared a moment. I felt amazing! A miracle.
There are no insignificant moments. There are no small acts of love. We are moving from polarity to unity. All of us together, are love.
What can you do to change the world? You can love yourself, and your world will change.
It is not “just” you, it is you. You and your world becomes me and my world, which is us and our world; our world, our life, as one expression of love.
The individualized piece of divinity that you are, is every bit as important to what happens in this world as that piece that is a president.
This is not a falsehood. This is truth. You are the starting point, the ending point, and the whole point. Love yourself. You will change the world.
