It’s always interesting how one word can send people off in different directions. Not bad or good, but definitely interesting.
For example, the word ‘stress’ means different things to people. For one person it may mean a looming deadline, for another, it takes them down the rabbit hole of their ‘to-do’ list, and for another, it could mean getting out of bed.
People see their version of stress when a particular word is spoken.
The same is true for the word ‘love’.
What’s the first thing you think of when you hear the word ‘love’?
For some it may feel cozy and warm, for another, it may feel empty and have the edges of scorn, and yet for another, it may bring up the frustration and yearning for a romantic partner.
In our culture, it’s very often that the word love represents the romantic ideal of love depicted in our novels, movies, and commercials with the culturally agreed upon subtext that if you have this version of romance and love…all will be well.
I’d like to expand our perception of love. Can we have that conversation together, please?
Love holds the entire Universe together. The prime directive of the Universe is a return to Love.
Love laces every breath you take. Your cells are awash in Love. Source, Spirit, the Universe, the Divine, God IS Love. There is nowhere that Love isn’t. Love is the fabric of everything, including you.
As I’ve observed people over the years, I’ve noticed that we all want Love SO badly (because it’s who we are), We’ve created these elaborate ideas in order to find it. Romance definitely seems to be high on the list.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve nothing against romance at all. I love a book or movie with an epic romance just like the next girl. As well, I deeply love my partner in life, love, and romance.
I just think we’re missing the higher vision of love and consequently, are selling ourselves short.
If we are love, we don’t need to find it in romance. Rather we bring love to all we do, including our romance, not the other way around.
I suspect that a BIG reason we struggle in relationships and over 50% of marriages end in divorce is because so many of us are looking for the higher version of Love in our relationships, and when it doesn’t line up that way, we’re disappointed, disillusioned, and pissed. Then we play that out.
We look for that higher version of Love because we KNOW it’s there. It’s in our heart. It’s only our limited view that blocks the presence and feeling of higher Love.
Limiting views and blocks to Love are nothing more than the scheming, distracting, lots of fear. It’s resistance.
What if we’re selling ourselves short by looking only as far as romance? And what if the glorious stage of a new romance is a mere ‘hint’ of what true Love is?
What if the love we feel for our children and pets are another inroad to higher Love, yet barely scratches the surface?
Here’s what I’ve noticed…as I’ve raised the bar, vision, and view to higher Love, Love has revealed itself to me in everyone and everything. As I stay attuned to this broader perspective, it energizes all the places in my life where I thought I’d maxed out love and makes it even better.
Love is limitless, so there is no max.
Love is designed to expand and I invite you to allow Love to expand beyond what you thought possible. Let her show you and she will.
What we love, shapes and fashions us. ~Goethe
I decided that I better make sure it’s the highest version of Love doing the ‘shaping and fashioning’.
Starting there gets me everything I desire and more, here’s the kicker, everything I want is bestowed upon me by Love anyway.
Starting there means dissolving the blocks of fear that are living in you rent free.
