Is It Love or Is It Fear?
To truly understand the gift of magic we have inside of us called “love”, we have had to experience it in all of its fascinating and complicated interpretations. In doing this, however, what we have found over these long lifetimes of study is that it’s not very complicated at all. It’s not complicated now because we can finally make a comparison and understand. There are two kinds of love. One that is on its way out and one that is on its way in.
The one that is on its way out, funny…is the one that is based outside of you. Yes, it is leaving. It is the one that says you’ve needed love. That is not true and pretty important to see. We’ve been taught to believe that we needed love because we couldn’t remember that “love” is what we have always been made of. We knew it was important to us somehow, but since we didn’t know how to find it inside or even how to look inside, we’ve been searching for it out there.
Through religion, relationships, martyrdom and control we have very mistakenly thought there was something out there that was needed in order to fill that need for love…self-worth…approval. But in keeping the focus on this need to “fill”, what has happened is it has also kept each person looking outside of themselves and deeply away from the exploration of self to locate where Love is actually found.
The old love that is on its way out will be easy but not so comfortable to recognize. It will have fear attached to it somehow. Take a peek at your life. What about religion? Does it say anywhere that you are to look outside of yourself at any time for your own divine form of love? In your relationships, is there a need, a fear of losing, or an attachment to a certain outcome? Do you put your body on a diet to change it or to fix your health? Do you feel you’re shape is not perfect? Do you tell loved ones what to do because you know better or want to protect them?
All of those are based on fear and outside of self. They are all interpretations of love that we’ve based our knowledge upon up until now because of our beliefs in separation, suffering and survival. But the thing is that they cannot and will not continue to exist as the release of all forms of fear is currently underway within humanity.
Systematically, each aspect of love that we’ve yet to understand will pop up into our attention so that we can take a look at our beliefs and let go of what doesn’t work so well anymore. When you feel you need love or appreciation from another, remember life is a giant mirror. You are asking yourself for love and appreciation to fill you, to validate you. That is illusion. Do not look outside of yourself. Take a deep breath and go straight into your own heart. Ask yourself why you would want to go anywhere else?
Go inside your heart and sit there. Do not think about it or conjure up how it should appear. You are already there. You ALWAYS have been. It is your heart and all you really have to do is become aware of what already exists and feel it. As soon as you feel it, your mind will then begin to understand as it too is gaining new knowledge and from what I can see, enjoys such things very much.
My Heart is One with Yours,
