Leaving Love? As we leave this month of love, will you be leaving love behind? We have these wake up calls all the time that ask us to love more. When we see the delicacy and fragility of life, when we see the difference in performance of a child who was loved and one that didn’t get much of that gift, when we see how changing our perceptions of and about someone can shift an entire relationship, when someone reveals a deeper part of themselves and you get to really “see” them, we experience so many ways the Divine dances through our everyday lives and open us to the magical healing of love—loving and accepting love.
I am so greatful for my Beloved, Keith. We had a wonderful revelation a few weeks back about allowing the other to be wrong without feeling the need to point it out. Love can often reflect back to the person what is true rather than having it explained about how wrong they are. We all love to be told how wrong we are right?
With that feeling in mind, picture one time when someone showed you how wrong you were and what your reaction was. Take a moment… or ten… then remember a time when someone didn’t correct you but allowed you to see your error and be self-corrected. Be with that feeling and what you learned…
Being right isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. It often separates you from each other. Love is the great connecter. To love, you must trust. Trust yourself, trust the other to be who and what and where they are and not feel compelled to save or correct or be right.
Being out of sync, which you call wrong, just means you aren’t tuned in for whatever reason (usually fear) which makes you go to fast, makes you not feel connected, being too exhausted, or under the influence of…. Fear makes you do things that create a disconnect. The disconnect often makes you defensive, the defense makes you justify yourself, the justification creates a feeling of not being loved or understood and you loop and loop. If you just step back, take that wonderful Sipping breath and allow the other to be adjusted by the Divine, then that is trust. I ask you to take stock of your trust.
Do you trust that if you don’t do something it will be covered?
Do you trust that what is needed will come and not always through you?
Do you trust that if you step back and send a prayer instead of a need to fix, it will be adjusted in a better way then you could ever imagine?
What is your biggest trust buster? What makes you lose trust? What makes you trust?
Are you ready to jump into a new reality? Try loving more and correcting less, try more compassion and less fixing, try looking at situations with the eyes of innocence and be excited to discover what makes the other tick.
Rock on in Trust. Tis true the Beloved is awaiting you. Behind every tree and stone, when with others and when alone, when it is easy and when it’s not, the Beloved is there. You just block him/her/it a lot. Relax in the truth that you are amazing, and so am I—the one across from you who is also afraid to fly.
If you want some wings, accept help. It awaits you. Reach out as I reach into you.
