“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.” ― Marianne Williamson We are born with love, of love and in love. We are love. It is one of the most powerful energies that we can create and allow to flow through us. It heals, it blesses, it supports, it saves…we cannot exist without love. Our beauty is found in love, our wisdom is blessed by it, and our soul expands within it.
To remember that whenever we are filled with anger or hate, it stems from fear; fear of not knowing, fear of being outted, fear of being vulnerable and more. But this fear is most certainly learned. It is modeled to us by something or someone who has influence upon us, whether it be friends, family, peers or society. And if we are on our spiritual path, one of our greatest leaps is in the unlearning of this.
How do we unlearn this? We seek those who walk in love, we surround our selves with love, we look for love in the every day, in the every moment, in every face. When one is looking for love we cannot be focusing our energies on our fears, and so, slowly they get pushed away.
The best place to start? Start with yourself. Find the love in you, love your self with your imperfections, love your brilliance, love your body, your mind, and your soul. Fall in love with your dreams. Bring love to your work. Share love in your passions. Bless the world with your love. Bless yourself with your love. Be love. Be Love.
