Love animates the very core of our being and simultaneously permeates every aspect of our existence. This fundamental energy vibration brings meaning to life, sustains us through the most difficult challenges, and lifts us into the most profound joys. We seek it in countless ways during our everyday experiences and feel it deeply when fully connected to this primal life-force energy. We know it in the many qualities it brings to us, for example as kindness, compassion, forgiveness and inner peace. Alas, for most, it remains an elusive and externally sought expression while we silently crave its constant presence in our heart-of-hearts.
Our true connection to love has never been broken and never will be. It is an integral part of life itself and flows just as fluidly in and around our atoms and cells as it does through the rhythms of nature, the earth, and the starlit heavens above. The seeming disconnect comes from our perceptions, not from love. We are the ones that allow this separation to occur by externalizing our focus to a solely material existence and denying or ignoring the subtle realms of love that pervade every particle and moment of our reality.
As we continue to enmesh ourselves in our outer reality, we forge an imperceptible barrier to the innate knowing that comes from our conscious awareness and intuitive senses. We react to compelling outer consequences believing them to be our reality rather than incorporating love as the essential creative element of life. Over time, we come to erroneously identify with the outer forms of our experience instead of aligning ourselves to the completely integrated processes of love that formulate the basis of our reality.
Perhaps it is the intangible characteristic or inability to prove the existence of love that most confounds us. When we condition ourselves to a material reality, we tend to seek evidence and explanation for everything. Yet, if one asks to prove their love for another, for example like a parent to a child, there is no direct substantiation of love itself. Rather, it is the intangible bond and unspoken feeling that transcends any definition or explanation. We may share verbal, emotional or physical components to display and give outer evidence of our love; however, love itself is within and beyond these specific actions. This love is unconditional and is never contained or constrained by us, only shared through us by our conscious awareness and desire.
When we choose of our own volition to express universal love, we invoke this energy with intention to infuse itself into our thoughts, words, deeds and actions. We instantly imbue the very fabric of our individual and collective lives with this life-giving and sustaining vibration, transmuting and transforming anything less than love at the same time. Our world then becomes a reflection of love. This is who we really are. This is the spirit of love.
Love and hugs,
