Love, the third word I want to write about. So much could be said about it but what should I write today? Love is everything. If only everything was love. It is suppose to be the base for every action taken – but how often we forget that. As much as I try to remember, I often forget to ask “What Would Love Do”, – as Karen Paolino asks in her magnificent book, titled the same- http://www.createheaven.com/index.php/angels/products/books/. When I’m confused about which direction to take or how to change my perspective to something that resonates and I remember to ask – “What Would Love Do”, the answer always comes so simply that I know it is absolutely the best route to take. My disturbing thoughts leave; I immediately feel better and usually make someone else feel better too. Isn’t that what love does? I think so.
It is so much better for me emotionally and on every level to follow the road of love because love is gentle. It is forgiving and soft. It dissolves anything harsh and spreads a warm protective coating on anything it touches. Love is energy of the highest kind, smoothing the way for anything or anyone who is blessed to feel it. The ironic thing is, it is abundantly available and accessible to each and everyone one of us, yet we forget to ask for its guidance. It is our birthright – our gift, so why is it so difficult to remember that we can choose to love and let it show us the way – an infinitely better way?
Please tell us what we need to know.
Love has a golden path leading those who follow to riches of the personal kind; the riches of peace and contentment where life’s gifts are bestowed, even among the times of challenge. You are learning to find these gifts among your illness, in spite of your illness, just for being open to the love of yourself – compassionately optimistic, caring for you in the best way possible – showering yourself with understanding and soothing yourself with gentleness and care. Love is yours for the asking. Give and you shall receive – for it seeks its own vibration. Love finds love, just as surely as anger or hatred find more of the same. Love and you will be loved. Open and it will come back. Whatever challenges you face, ask – What would love do – and listen to the answer. The words you hear – the ones that make your heart sing are those of love. With love, follow love.
I also realize that there have been times when love has found me without my asking and I’ve doubted its purity and mistrusted its intent. Instead of reveling in its beauty, I let mistrust and fear guide me and I turned my back on it. Or I feared letting it in, because I might have to deal with its loss down the road. I wonder how many loving experiences I missed because of this and how many opportunities I failed to return the love given to me. Too many I am sure. But today, I am conscious of this and I will remember that love is everything and try my hardest to make everything about love. No more will love meet my back. I will face forward with my arms outstretched and welcome love into my heart and soul because – well – that is what love would do.
