“The more you are motivated by love, the more fearless and free your action will be.” Dalai Lama, Tibetan Spiritual Leader
For many years I’ve believed that LOVE is the greatest transformer of all. LOVE is the core of who we are and part of our spiritual awakening is to remember! For the past couple of days a couple of musical tunes spontaneously kept playing in my mind. One was ‘What the World Needs Now is Love’ and the other was the Beatles’ song ‘Love is All There Is’. So, in spite of what’s been happening in the world I re-centered and reflected on LOVE. It’s so easy to lose sight of who we are and our deep desire, often unconscious, to receive love and give our love to others. How different would the world be if choices were motivated by love rather than power, greed, or fear?
Jamaican musician and philanthropist, Ziggy Marley, has said, “Love is cheering and sharing and compassion and giving and receiving. Love is an action thing more than a word thing, that brings comfort or joy or relief to anyone or anything.” Imagine a world that you co-create that is filled with cheering, sharing, being compassionate, giving and receiving love. Perhaps this is the world you live in already. Great! I like to think that the world I live in is pretty amazing and wonderful! As my reflection deepened I realized that I’m not always consciously aware of the impact my words and actions have on others. Have I brought comfort or joy to people? I know that sometimes I have but I wondered, “Did I expect certain outcomes through my words or actions? Did I hold any judgment?” I like to think I didn’t but being more conscious of my words, actions, and motivations will help me to remain more open to give and receive more love in my life.
If you believe that the core or essence of who we are is LOVE then spending reflective time seeking to understand any layers of resistance you might have to give and receive more love could be beneficial. Psychologist, G. Frank Lawlis, Ph.D., has said that “Giving and receiving love is vital to human existence. It is the glue that binds couples, families, communities, cultures, and nations.” Are you ready to dive deep and explore your inner world and beliefs that might restrict how much love you give and receive? Can you imagine feeling more loved and having your love welcomed and received without judgment or expectation? How will this shift your world view? How much more fearless will you become? Will you change how choices are made and use the lens of love as you make them? How fun this shift might be! Remember, our world is ours to create and it begins with each one of us – our choices and beliefs. I can’t imagine a world without giving and receiving love. Can you?
