Daily InspirationThe path of love is not the easy path - it is the road less traveled. It requires letting go of power and control over others and outcomes. It requires strict adherence to truth, to living and speaking the radical truth. Today, be truthful with yourself about what path you are on - the path of fear, control and avoidance of pain, or the path of courage, truth and love. By Dr. Margaret Paul
Love, Where Is It?By nancys
February 14, 2008
Certified Inner Bonding Facilitator reminds us about where love really exists. Make this day (and every day!) a day of choosing to love yourself!
Do you wait for love to come to you? For someone to look at you with a smile of love? For someone to compliment you? For someone to tell you that you are the most important person in their life?
Today, do you wait for signs of your worth, in the form of cards, flowers, phone calls?
Do you think that love exists outside of yourself, within the other person, the lover, partner, mate, child? So many people do. It is our training, in a sense. As children, if we acted the way others wanted us to act, then we were loved.
But was that love? Or was that approval? Love and approval are totally different energies.
My wish for all of you is that you take time today to open up to the love that flows through every cell in your body.Literally. Love is the very energy that makes our heart beat as we sleep each night. Love is the energy that gives us ideas, desires, and the excitement about being alive.
But the love I’m speaking about won’t be available to you if you believe that love exists outside of you.
To allow the love that you are to become a real moment-by-moment experience requires that you let go of unloving thoughts about yourself. These thoughts are mostly unconscious. A tiny example is this: imagine you are sitting in your living room. The position you are in is straining one of the smaller muscles in your back. You feel it. Then unconsciously tell yourself that it doesn’t matter. So you keep sitting that way, rather than reposition your body so that it feels good.
I know. Such a small example. But it is moments like this that we choose. We always have a choice to stay tuned in to our self, tapped in to Spirit, and turned on to doing what we need to do to align our body, mind and spirit.
When we are aligned, love is all there is.
I wish you alignment. Love. And the joy of sharing your innate love with all the people you come into contact with today.
