Often in life, we tend to see things as one thing or one way. We have been raised a certain way, taught things that were our parents(or others) way of thinking, given the ways that "life is". "Thats just the way it is" they say!
What do you see here...a young lady or old? Things are rarely what they might appear at first glance! (someone will see the old lady and give you a clue!)
Is is really exactly the way "they" say it is?
I am talking about LOVE here, more specifically..(yes we are on that subject again). HOW is love, really?
Is LOVE just one thing or is it everything? Is it smooching and hugging or is it in those who might speak unkindly to us? Is it in certain places or is it everywhere? Is it in only the good stuff or in the rough stuff too? Is it only in color or is it truly black and white..either it is LOVE or it is not!?
For many, this has been a prison of limited thinking and has kept them small, in a tight box, cramped and not open to miracles that are everywhere.
in the person who walked away?
in the job we lost?
in the stress we experience?
in the flu one has?
in the thunderstorm?
in the house we had to move out of?
in the (in your face) realization of something we need to work hard to change about ourselves?
Ummmm.....what if? No what ifs....LOVE is in all those things.
Why? How? ...you might ask!!!!????
The person who walked away no longer was good for you, nor you for them. They set you free. Was it loving? Probably not! Was it love? yep!
The job you lost was not for you anymore, it didnt serve you well and it was time for a new adventure. Love? Yep. Even if you loved it, love is on its way again.
The stress we experience? Love? Yes! It is our body's loving way of asking us to slow down, live life in a new way, seeing things differently. There will always be things to test our mettle. The experience of stress is a loving message from our body, an alarm that is going off! Love..yesireeee.
The flu..stop, drop and roll....lay down, rest, and look at your body and see what you can lovingly provide it to heal itself. Love, yes that is love.
On it goes...you get the point...(or not..teehee)
It is not the love in the thing, it is BRINGING love TO the thing!!
Does LOVE look like one thing or is it everywhere and in everything?
It is everywhere and in everything.....just putting it in a whole new picture frame changes the way you look at LOVE.
Of course, we soooo LOVE the parts that already are in the LOVE picture frames and look like LOVE! Ah-ha!!! those are the ones that give us the energy to do all that reframing work!
Love from my heART full of LOVE to your heART full of LOVE! M-u-a-h!!!
