Love is a state of Being.
The above quote by Eckhart Tolle popped up on my iPhone right when I needed to see it. I have always felt deeply, whatever the emotion or energy, I feel it from deep within. I have also always loved deeply. I provide myself with the chance to be in touch with what I feel, which allows me to express my emotions and caring for a situation and others in the most sincere way. A few years back, someone told me that "I care too much"... I was really stressing out at the time about issues that were taking place in the world, how people were being mistreated and how insignificant I felt in the midst of it all, as I strove to be a force of positivity and light. That comment stuck with me for a while -- "you care too much" -- it did not make sense to me and here is why. I felt and if I am being honest, I still feel this way, that I live in a world where the majority of people do not care enough. I understand how it can be easier to worry about own's one concerns, but seeing as how we members of an existence greater than just ourselves, the thought of only thinking about myself has never sat right with me. So I continued to ponder over the comment made about me, since it still was not sitting right. Then I happened upon this quote --
-- and it all became clear to me. I am aware of the love that I feel. I take the time to be present with my inner self, to be in touch with my love and my emotions ... this is something that not all do and yet it is something that all could benefit from doing. When we take the time to find our love, the love that is deep within us ... our own light grows brighter. The light that is inside each of us, the light that shines forth for all the world to see ... this light too can dim, but it can never leave us. When the forces of our love and our light are honored than each and everyone of us become capable of our own greatness, we become the forces of love and light that this world desperately needs. Our love radiates forth from within us creating positive ripple effects when we choose to tap into the awesomeness that is in us all.
If someone told me that I care too much now, I would smile and say "thank you"! I cannot think of a better compliment. If caring is loving and loving is caring, then that is an energy that I always want to be in touch with.
I invite you all to take a moment, rest your hands one on top of the other on top of your heart... close your eyes... gently drop your chin towards your heart center and breathe. Feel the rhythm of your heartbeat. Feel the beauty of your love. Feel the warmth of your light. Breathe into it, recognize it and honor it, for it is you.
Peace everyone, now and always.
A spiritual being on a physical journey, striving to make a positive impact on this world through my actions and loving intention. I believe that we are all capable of greatness, it is how we channel this great energy that matters... I choose to express it in the name of -- peace and love.
