The prime directive of the Universe is a Return to Love. Each of us will return from whence we came, and I’ve become a huge fan of ‘sooner rather than later’. Human beings like to press the ‘snooze button’ when they get a nudge to move toward love more fully.
When a wise person talks about replacing fear with love, an ordinary person is apt to dismiss the idea as impossible, lofty, and pious. But the fact is, the wise person is telling you something, which is one of the first laws of health, as well as morality. No person even for the body’s sake can afford to indulge in fear. It is akin to repeated doses of poison. When you are urged to return fear to love, you are not listening to a moon-struck idealist; rather you are hearing counsel that is as significant to health as advice about diet. This process has nothing to do with anything on the outside; it’s an inside job. The outside trigger serves to show us the fear that is ready to be loved free.
As the mind rebels, and the heart rejoices, do it anyway. It’s the point of life.
What is being ‘returned’ you ask? Great question. Everything that is not Love. Fear and all its cohorts such as doubt, worry, anxiety, grief, anger, not enoughness, you get the idea because there’s plenty of this going around.
Can you imagine our world as more and more of us make choices from Love rather than fear? Whole different world. Probably a world most of us would prefer to live in.
A Law of the Universe is that it can only reflect back to us what is “in” us.
This is exactly why it’s an ‘inside job’. We each must do our part…all hands on deck. I can’t do your inner work for you, and you can’t do mine.
I can unequivocally tell you that every time I release a piece of fear, I feel free. This freedom imparts untold blessings that I could never see from my fear-based perspective.
A blessing is always on the other side of fear.
I’ve learned this process is foundational to everything else I do to be healthy, grow, and be the best person I can be. All the ways I contorted to avoid having this foundation rendered everything I was doing ineffectual.
I love this idea I heard from Barbara Marx Hubbard…You can’t heal yourself or the world by just being better at what is already not working. (not in quotes because I don’t recall her exact wording)
We’re already good at being terrorized by our fears, anxious about our anxiety, and worried to death about our doubts and worries. We keep trying to be ‘better’ at it, but it’s not working very well.
There is only one way home…and that is returning our self to Love. Period. The changes in our life come through us, not to us. We are our own alchemist. Transmuting fear back to truth. Because in the face of Love, fear is utterly nothing. There are no opposites here, there is only Love.
The world will change when more of us do. It can’t work any other way. By the Law of Life.
No more snooze button, will you join me in the Art of Returning to Love? Only Love is Real. Every heart knows that no matter how buried it is. Say Yes and your heart will show you the way. There is an art to it. Best news ever…your heart is an artist.
