The Day – It’s Valentine’s Day –
“The Day.” That’s what we call Valentine’s Day, the most loaded day of the year. I would like to make this day a luscious day for everyone this year. What can you do to increase your lusciousness? I have a gift for you.
It is only a gift if you accept it by doing it. Watch this and do the meditation and share it with others. Please let me know what your experience was. Let’s spread the true message of love.
It is not about owning anyone or being owned by someone. It is about how we can increase our capacity to love those that are easy to love in our lives, but most of all, the ones that we have the most challenges with.
Can you give yourself the gift of being taught to love more fully by those who are the most challenging to your concept of love in your life?
Can you use this month of love and intimacy to open to the darkest places where you are holding grudges and resentments?
Can you take the time in your busy life to sit with the person in your heart that irks you the most and send them the prayer of light?
To me, this month is the rocket launcher of love. This month seems to be about these things which are opposites:
- It says you are worth loving and you are not.
- You are worth having as a partner and you… you are doomed to being alone.
- It tells us who is worthy and who is totally undeserving.
Ha! Laugh at that. It is so much deeper than that, my loves. It is the energy of love that we love. It is the feeling of being in love that we worship. It is the kindness and consideration of love that we long for. The real question to be asking in the month of love is how we can love better in this time given to us; this month when the focus is on loving, on caring for our loved one, on looking to worship and create space for love to exist and thrive in our intimate relationships. I say, why not make all relationships intimate? You know, as I wrote “better” above, I typed in “batter.” Funny, but let me say now tis the time to roll your life in batter and bake it in the fire of your heart. Don’t sugarcoat things but “coat things” and people with the potential and belief that each person and situation was sent to you as a seen or unseen gift to make you more loving.
I was with a friend yesterday whose mother is very, very sick. She will be the first to tell you they have had a challenging relationship. She sold her house to buy another for her and her daughter in another city, another state. But now this money is going to take care of her mother. She gets that she is being given the chance to truly do what all her prayers have been, to heal this relationship between her and her mother. The opportunity to heal old love wounds often comes in strange and unexpected packages. Open them please, for they will, in their depth and challenges, expand your capacity to love, to hold, to uplift, to be the light of love which is what this glaring red holiday is truly about. How ravenously red can you get? How lusciously white can you be? How intriguingly, inquisitively open can you be in your quest for who you can love better next? How can you build your capacity to love more?
Let me know if you are in love yet. Is it now? Now? How about now? “How to Love Better” sessions are available at Gurutej Sessions.
Thank you. Love you. Wahe Guru.
