Daily InspirationDo you attach your value to effort or to outcome? When you attach your self-worth to outcome, then you are likely afraid of failure. When you attach your self-worth to effort, then you likely don't even think much about failure, and you see failure as just part of your learning experience. Why not let go of attaching your worth to outcomes and instead focus on the process? By Dr. Margaret Paul
The Circle of Love: The Highest Experience in LifeBy Dr. Margaret Paul
February 16, 2015
A circle of love is the result of people being together with open hearts, and is the most wonderful experience in life.
Have you ever experienced a circle of love?
A circle of love occurs when two or more people are together with completely open hearts - open with their essence, with each other and with Spirit. When we are deeply connected with our core self and with the love and sustenance of Spirit, and we are sharing our love with others - and they are doing the same - a circle of love occurs. A circle of love is the highest, most joyous experience in life.
Yet most people in relationships rarely, if ever, experience a circle of love. This is because when the intent is to protect against pain rather than to learn about love, the heart is closed to feelings, as well as to others and to Spirit.
A circle of love is a profound experience - well worth working toward. It's what we all yearn for in our souls. Fun, joy, intimacy and creativity are some of the results of the circle of love. So, what can you do to create more circles of love in your life?
The major thing you can do is to consistently practice the Six Steps of Inner Bonding. The steps are designed to create and support your connection with your self and with Spirit, while healing the fears and false beliefs of the wounded self that are in the way of this connection. By practicing these steps throughout the day, healing will occur and connection will consistently deepen. It is only when you have established a circle of love within yourself and with Spirit that you can extend this circle out to others. Without the inner and spiritual connection, there is an internal emptiness that wants to get filled externally, so any "love" you share with others isn't really love - it's a pull to get love, attention and approval.
The energy of love comes from Spirit, and can then be shared with others. If you are not connected with Spirit, then you are not aware of receiving the love and sustenance of Spirit. When you are not aware of receiving this, you do not feel the fullness of it inside. Instead, you feel empty and alone and hope to get love from others to fill the emptiness. You might have learned to give "love" to get love, but what you are really doing is trying to control the other person into giving you what you think you need to feel safe, worthy and lovable. You will never feel the incredible joy of a circle of love when your intent is to get love from others, rather than learning to fill yourself with love from Spirit and share it with others.
What could possibly be more important in life than being able to share a circle of love? Nothing else compares to this ultimate experience. While we certainly need to spend time creating financial security and physical health, developing our unique gifts, and taking care of the everyday tasks of life, it's also very important to place your Inner Bonding practice high on your priority list. Inner Bonding really does work to create the inner and spiritual connection that is the foundation for the circle of love. Learning to love yourself and connect with Spirit is not the ultimate goal of Inner Bonding - it is the foundation necessary to share love.
Don't miss out on life's ultimate experience. You have the power to bring this incredible experience into your own life by the choices you make. You will be amazed at how many people are available to share a circle of love with you - for a minute, an hour, a day, or a lifetime in the case of a partner - when you do the inner work you need to do to become available for a circle of love.
