FREEDOM TO LOVE
Possessing the freedom to love sounds easy. But is it really? Let's take a quick look at his possibility. I believe we are all born to express love as we know it. That is not to say that all of us do that. There are way too many folks born into this world and are taught to hate instead of love. Even though love is within us as human beings it can be completely covered up and when this happens it is up to each of us to once again dig deep, way past any limitations others have taught us, and to discover that eternal spark of Divine Love within. Not all will agree with my thinking on this subject but personally I want to discover all the love I can. Keeping in mind that there are many "different" types of love I have long been in the process of defining love as it relates to me. Love is an emotion, I think most would agree with that. And being an emotion it is very hard to define and to understand. When I speak of love I am referring to "Unconditional Love". This is the love that is just that, pure love and nothing else. How many times you heard someone say they could love another if the other person would only do this, or that, or believe or act in a different manner. That kind of love is conditional and it will never last! Unconditional love is eternal as long as it remains just that- Unconditional! Here is the kicker though. If I want to give unconditional love to another person then I must first possess that love. I sure can't give away something I don't possess! So in order to love anyone unconditionally I feel I must first of all clear my mind of all the garbage and negativity I may have allowed to enter my sub consciousness. This is harder than it sounds. At least it is for me! But by doing the necessary mental work I am then able to love in what I feel is the "right" way. I remind you that these thoughts and beliefs are mine only! It may not work for you it may sound silly, it may go against everything you believe. My hope is that any of you, who are trying to attain the state of Unconditional Love, are able to find your own way to achieving this state of mind. For in my world at least, nothing else means much unless you live a life of love. But again that's just me. I will leave all of you with the following quote from Deepak Chopra who stated: "You have to go past the turbulence of internal dialog to connect with that abundant, affluent, infinite, creative mind." Oh how I agree with that! May I also once again remind you to do something nice for someone today while you still can. I wish all of you folks the very best of everything!
