Pursuing Love — From My Heart
Each of us comes to the life with a different perspective on how to secure love.
Some of us think we’re not worthy of love.
I remember thinking that I was fundamentally un-loveable, that there was something so essentially wrong and broken within me that it wasn’t going to happen.
This perception drove many big (and small) decisions in my life.
It wasn’t until I liberated myself from control by surrendering completely, that I experienced unconditional self-love. It was so extraordinary that it made me weep and laugh at the same time.
Some of us think we need to do something in exchange for love.
Some of us think we need to be a certain way (perfect, or uniquely self expressed, or successful) to secure love.
Some of us find it easy to see and express love for others, but are challenged to turn that attention and affection on ourselves.
Some of us spend our lives running from activity to engagement and so on, worried that if we slow down enough to come into contact with our inner quiet the pain that lives there will consume us. Experiences of love are associated with projections or a façade, because the price we think we’d have to pay for deep love is too high.
Some of us think that love comes in the form of proving our perceptions are correct – so we spend our emotional capital working to convince others that our perceptual view is worthy of being adapted. Love must be worked on and secured, we think.
And so on.
The question is, are these perceptions about love true?
Is it real that we must do something in order to secure love at the most fundamental level?
And if it’s not true, how do we change our perceptions and our experiences around love??
I’m confident you know this isn’t true (though you may question it when you look inward occasionally – we all do – that’s normal): each of us is as worthy as the next.
The big question is: how do we change our perception around love?
The answer to this question runs parallel to another important spiritual dilemma: what does it mean to be a child of God – or an undistorted expression and extension of the Divine?
Knowing this and feeling this – those are two different things.
And when you feel your connection with the Divine inside your body – really feel it – it transforms you!
On Tuesday of this week the group session I did was focused on abundance. It was the theme of the week with nearly every one I connected with!
Receiving, worthiness, and abundance are all variations on the same theme.
The place where you meet and first experience the divine inside is the most profound and powerful part of your spiritual journey inward. Once you encounter this place, begin exploring it and integrating the awareness and insights gained, everything – and I mean EVERYTHING in your life begins to reflect your newfound and deeper experience of resonance.
Abundance abounds. On every level.
Perception changes in this place – not by reprogramming your beliefs, but through experience.
Here’s an easy-to-understand example of this:
You can learn-read-be-taught everything you could ever imagine about what an orgasm feels like. You can reprogram your beliefs, clear subconscious beliefs, etc. etc.
And then there’s the experience of having an orgasm. There’s nothing like that experience to change your perspective.
Ditto with Love.
So how can we have an orgasmic experience of love – one that arises spontaneously – one that is perspective changing – one that opens up a new awareness, a new experience?
One answer is surprisingly simply: Embody your soul.
When you embody your soul you open the pathway through which you experience the Divine. Your embodied soul opens up everything in the realm Divine connection – and from your experience of your Divine connection flows everything else.
Are you worthy?
Is the sky blue?
Does the earth orbit around the sun?
You are worthy in ways that defy language. To say you are worthy at the cellular level is to diminish the truth of it.
The truth is, there is NOTHING you could ever do to opt out.
In fact there is nothing anyone who has ever existed has ever done, nor anyone will ever exist could ever do, that would render someone unworthy.
When you embody your soul, you open the door to the experience of who you really are … and one such expression, is love.
The kind of love that is always there; not dependent on what you do or say or believe.
Always in you, no matter what you do.
That’s it for this week … From My Heart.
