The truth about love – that it is everywhere, that we can access it without anyone else in the room, is a challenge. This way of thought is not one we are familiar with.
I hope you’ll stay with me here as I have some ideas to offer you that are not what we’ve been fed all along. The reason I offer them here is so that ultimately we can adopt a strategy for living and loving that lasts. Not just for a moment or a weekend or a few short months – forever.
I want us to feel always empowered, always loved, and always love. My deepest wish for us is constant joy. This is not dispensed to us from an all powerful source, but it springs from us.
It’s like tying your shoes. Having tied shoes is something you took for granted as a toddler. Every day, some adult in charge, tied your shoes. If they became untied and loose, you could trip and fall. Although you may have been able to get back up again, you could not prevent another fall because you could not tie your own shoes!
Until you learned. It wasn’t easy. It felt clumsy and often they came undone anyway. Daily, sometimes hourly practice changed all that. One day they didn’t get loose and you didn’t trip at all. A few days later you stopped thinking about your shoes. You just skipped through your days, unafraid.
We all have different approaches. One of my sons just ties them once. Not once a day, or once a week, but once – period. He hates tying his shoes and enjoys the freedom of never thinking about it beyond that moment when he brings them home from the store. It works.
So, let’s skip through our days, unafraid. Let’s lose our dependence on some “other” to love us and create a feeling of worth in ourselves. Let’s access our very essence, and love ourselves. That way, no matter whom else is around, we are ok. We can feel good, joyful even. We can take pleasure in the wonder of us, in the fact that we breathe and think and communicate and create. Let’s enjoy ourselves without dependence on another to create that possibility.
Happiness, joy, love – it’s all a choice. It is not something we have to ask for, it is the expression of our very nature. We are powerful, playful, loving beings. We are here now, by choice, to “shift the vibe” from polarity to unity. This really is who you are; you are a unique form of creative energy who came to do this wonderful thing. You are here to love.
Your understanding and willingness for the role is breathtaking. You are seeking to learn. You are looking to evolve. Your unique gift is necessary. We all need what you are.
You stand without need of improvement. You require nothing else to be of value. You are beautiful, strong, compassionate and perfect. You can hear these words again and again or never again – they are truth.
Speak them to yourself. When you fall, get up and lovingly tie your own shoes and join us as we skip through life with our own shoes firmly tied. We are smiling and strong and waiting for you.
We know who you are without words. When our eyes meet, you tell us.
You are love.
