Has the “river of love” been washing over you all this week? If you feel that it has, it just means that you actually have become conscious of it. Love was always there, residing within you and flowing all around you. Isn’t it odd, and even sad, that we don’t notice it a lot of the time?
We have this challenge, you see. Instead of relying on the wisdom we have right there inside of us, the kind of wisdom that knows for sure, that we are eternal, divine and loving at the core of our being, we turn outside ourselves and take for truth the misinformation that comes in from the world. We actually believe that we are small, unworthy, and filled with many negative attributes we learn from some of those around us and from our past histories. Then we replay them ad nauseam. This is not an over statement. We actually can make ourselves sick and miserable by believing all those messages. We are traumatized by them, even though we have a choice in the matter.
Flat out, DON’T BELIEVE THOSE FALSE NOTIONS! You are the essence of love. But don’t take my word for it. Why should you? Far greater minds than mine have said the same thing. Over and over again. Look at all the great spiritual writings. There it is. And yet, we choose to be unhappy. We place our trust in ego messages that we think justify our already paltry view of ourselves. I have spent a lot of time believing those old songs.
So go back and look at the lesson earlier this week. Let the love flow over you and around you. Just for a few seconds, if that is all you can muster. Feel loved and cared for. There! Doesn’t that feel better? Even if a few seconds. And YOU did it! It does not have to come from another person. You can experience it for yourself.
Now, if you want to go back to doubting and feeling bad again, that is the freedom you have.
BUT YOU CAN CHOOSE LOVE, EVERY SECOND OF YOUR LIFE! ( I hope I am not being TOO pushy.)
Believe in love. Why wouldn’t you? Give me one good reason not to.
With love and namaste, Deanne
