I woke on this very chilly winter morning to write to you about love. We live at a difficult time of mass exposure to images and articles about pain, abuse, war, and violence from all around the world, and it can be challenging to keep the energy of love awake within us. However, love, "unconditional love" is the only energy I know of that transforms true and extremely deep pain. Yes, pain in our body, emotions, thoughts, and spirit need love to heal. We need to be deliberately open to give and receive love.
Today we are reminded of love everywhere we turn. Take some time to consider how love is awake in your life, within your heart, towards yourself, and towards others. How to you live from love in your life? What are you passionate about? Consider the difference between romantic love, compassionate love, and the love we all need to awaken towards ourselves and each other to create change. It takes a true act of love to heal even the deepest of pains.
May you awaken to all the many ways you can lift yourself and others with the Blessings of Love,
"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage." ~ Lao Tzu
