“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”
~ Jimi Hendrix

After participating in a group conversation and meditation this week one of the members shared the above quote by Jimi Hendrix. It touched a chord within my heart and soul. Another person reminded us that the 50th anniversary of Woodstock is being celebrated right now. This brought back memories of the peace movement, hippies, and love that took place in the past. Am I dating myself? Some of you may remember! LOL

Like many of you I continue to reflect upon what’s currently happening in our world. I’m reminded that there is a bigger picture and purpose. Yes, I realize that their is a lot going on. For me, some of it isn’t pleasant at all. I believe that the way we choose to respond to these experiences is what creates our own journey of personal growth. As I sit back and ask, “What’s the bigger picture?” I remember that each one of us is a  part of Source/God/the Universe/Creator – whatever you choose to name it is personal and beautiful. I will use Source for today’s article. The essence of Source is LOVE and our individual core essence is LOVE. This belief is found in many teachings. So why is there so much chaos in the world if that’s true?

Hmmm. Now for some of you what I’m about to say may seem a little far out. Please take what resonates and let go of what doesn’t. Imagine that Source is without form and is nothing but consciousness. Yeah, just imagine! For some of you this consciousness may take on a form and that’s beautiful! For others, not, and that’s beautiful as well.

Now, what if the only way Source can grow and expand is to experience through those of us who volunteered to be here? Still with me? Each one of us experiences different things and a full range of emotions. We see contrast through these experiences, yes? What if through these experiences and contrasts we not only grow individually and collectively – Source grows too! It’s possible isn’t it? 

Right now is an exciting time as humanity begins the process of awakening to and remembering who they are at their very core – LOVE. Many may not fully awaken in this lifetime; however, the soul yearns for it. The journey of awakening takes the time it takes and can’t be forced. 

We are in a time of great transition as we see and experience “power over” and “love of power” behaviors become “the power of love and peace”. Are we there yet? Perhaps in individual moments we feel it. I don’t feel it’s reached the mainstream yet. So, can an individual make a difference and contribute to “the power of love”? Absolutely! 

How? One way is to imagine and remember who you truly are. LOVE is your true nature. Feel it as you pray and meditate. Yes, you choose to express yourself uniquely through many activities. How do you experience them? For example, as you go about your day are you more loving, kind, accepting, and forgiving of yourself and others or are you on auto-pilot? Do you experience more moments of loving and being loved? Remember, you aren’t your activities! 

Another way is to invite a few friends to join you and who are curious and interested in exploring beliefs who have open minds and hearts without judgment. It’s amazing what you might discover as you have fun with it. Include prayer or meditation as part of your experience. What if you just flow and don’t have an agenda or a designated leader? Yikes! This may feel a bit weird if you are used to structure and like to be in charge. Have fun with it and allow the group and experience to evolve organically. 

What if you begin to feel as Jimi Hendrix said, “When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.” What changes might you experience? 

I would love to hear your thoughts about this and what you may already be experiencing individually within your already created groups!
