An overused four-letter word over the ages, love is an enigma for many of us. Love’s purest form is the divine expressed and the fruit of that expression. The sun, moon, and all of existence dancing together in harmony, unity, and symmetry is so beautiful, it brings tears to the eyes of anyone who truly understands its splendor. Gentle and kind on one hand, love created our world in the other. Mothers and fathers find the strength to lift a car off a hurt loved one and yet love can yield so eloquently that hearts break. Love will drag us into a war when every instinct inside us says…no, don’t go. These are just a few examples of love’s power. Sages say love initiates all behavior, which is a hard concept to understand given all the cruelty we witness every day. This article explores these and love’s other mysteries.
At its core, all behavior and every creative impulse starts with a love-based intention born from our soul. However, the strategies used to implement our dream is limited by the wisdom and maturity we possess at that moment in our life. This deep truth is essential to understand during any healing modality because it honors our original creative impulse. By revisiting our original intention, we create the non-judgmental space to reconsider what we want to do going forward without the pain, guilt and negative habituated behavior patterns and previous trauma that probably created the problem in the first place. This acknowledgment combined with our soul’s awareness of unconditional love reduces self-recrimination when things go south.
Love is all-powerful, fluid and cleanses the deepest recesses of our personality and any dysfunctional patterns. Pure love knows no bounds or limits where it can or cannot go. This essential truth is important to know to unlock unwanted behaviors, previous trauma, and negative emotional patterns. Remembering our love infused intention helps us review, release and change anything we want about our personality and/or any historical suffering that continues to recycle pain and dismay. Training our mind to focus on its original inspiration is an important step, but there is much more to do. When walking with friends for example, the love shared within our hearts is palpable, but it is important to remember our enemy knows this same love. Hold the awareness that our adversary is a pure form of love brought before us to mirror our illusions, misguided thought patterns and constrictions so we can see our reflection. All we need to remember is how to love, solve the mystery before us and bring our illusions to light that need love, attention, and transformation.
So how can a heart break? It breaks when love is absent. We know this in our songs and deep within our heart. Love is a state of mind that says yes to the world, yes to love and yes to being present in the world. Our heart is the organ that makes this happen and passion is what draws life and love from the universe to us, not our mind merely wanting it. Oneness is a soul quality and our heart manifests this quality on earth. Our heart is love’s engine, pumping life-giving blood every minute of everyday throughout our life until we die. This ability to give life isn’t limited to us, but the whole world in the form of intended love to everyone we meet and embracing the divine in the space of oneness.
Heartfelt passion isn’t the only magnet creating our world, but it happens to be the most powerful. Anchoring our passion or a dream in the physical world is accomplished by synchronizing our intentions, heart, and behavior into a stable unity, like a three-legged stool. Mental focus, emotional desire, and dedicated action, when grounded with awareness and integrity create the opportunity to materialize our wants and needs. Once our three-legged stool is balanced, we can attract our heart’s desire and actualize dreams. Creation starts with intention, heartfelt passion, and dedicated action. When we focus on the highest good for ourselves and others, our soul and the universe joins the chorus. This is how our passionate heart awakens the universe to match our energy and manifest dreams.
We incarnated to experience our creations and experience love in physical form. We came to play in an atmosphere of love and learn how to become one with the divine, everyone on earth and all creation. Love’s purest form compels us to merge and nurture others like life-giving water to create an ocean of love in our life. Or perhaps, become a lovely rain cloud with a majestic rainbow, that washes and cleanses everything we meet with joy, love, and the everlasting truth of our existence. We are purest love and everything we encounter on earth is made of the same stuff. Walk and play with love in your heart for there is no other way to be happy deep within. Pure love is what we are and the essence of our soul. We are divine beings in incarnate form, an embodiment of the oneness within divinity. Let your heart pump and circulate the life-giving blood and love of life with everyone you meet. The following meditation is designed to assist your visualization.
