The world begins and ends with love…….the love we have for a special person, the love we have for family, and the love that we demonstrate towards human kind. Love does not ever ask us to lose ourselves, harm ourselves or sacrifice ourselves for its sake…..ultimately love will offer us measure for measure what we offer to others. If you are being dishonoured, disrespected, or mistreated then you must ask yourself – is it time to leave? Loving ourselves and honouring ourselves sometimes means removing ourselves from the situation or relationship. it means standing in our truth, so that goodness can flow to us, unobstructed so that we can realize life’s magic.
Very often love is the force that wakes us up and shakes us into reality, and moves us out of fear and back into loving ourselves. Inner strength comes from knowing who you are at your core, and loving yourself no matter what others may say. Critical mass matters and if most of the people in your life, appreciate you, love you and believe in you then it really doesn’t matter what one or two say because their sentiments are born out of fear not love and therefore you can discard them. Love is the experience of joy that we have when we have the courage to tell ourselves the truth. Everything that we learn is life’s way of training us to be a greater expression of LOVE.
Don Miguel Ruiz said “You have the power to create. Your power is so strong that whatever you believe comes true. You create yourself, whatever you believe you are. You are the way you are because that is what you believe about yourself. Your whole reality, everything you believe is your creation. The main difference between you and someone else is how you apply your power, what you create with your power.”
