This love does not involve partners, relationships or the emotions surrounding them. What you experience as love in those situations is a reflection of your need for validation. You seek love from the ego and ignore the love that is around you. In the human journey for love, you know you have love and are loved when another loves you. In the spiritual journey of love, you know you are loved because you are love, love is all around you and you are always in the energy of love.
Being loved and being in love are different aspects of this principle. The state of being in love is how you acknowledge that you are always in the energy of love. There are two aspects to being in love, one is spiritual and energy based, the other is material and emotional. Being in love from your spirit simply requires that you acknowledge the love that is around you. This is the love that you are from (originally) and that is within you as your divine light.Let these words awaken the memory of your divine spark that lies within and with that rememberance of who you are.We (most of us, tapped into who we are and why we are here) are bringing in, as a soul mission, a humanity, a higher form of love that is unconditional love. That arises from the essence of our soul star, and we are making changes on earth by bringing in something better. Feel this in your being.
Being in love from the ego means that the world must prove that you are loved from outside yourself by another, being valued and appreciated for who you are and what you do. This need for confirmation by the ego is never satisfied and leads to disappointment. All of these share one characteristic, they are part of your outer world and all it can do is mirror your inner state of being in love back to you.
When you look to the outer world to validate your inner needs, you are often dissatisfied with the results because the outer reality cannot be more than the inner being. Whatever you are on the inside is always reflected in your reality, in the people and situations that are part of your inner journey. Facing the world each day, knowing that you are love and are always in love creates the resonance that will allow love to unfold for you, in every relationship, with each step of your journey. To be love is to know love; to be in love is to have love and to be living within the presence and comfort of unconditional love which is to know heaven on earth. May we all tap into our feeling of love within, as divine love and a knowing that it is what we are more and more...the whole world over.
Blessings on this beautiful spring day
