We all want more Love ~ we all need it.
It’s the food of the soul.
All suffering, complaints and hurts are born from the lack of Love, when we’re not getting enough of love, or seeing enough love around us in our environment. Wherever we look there is a starving, a striving, a need for more; a world in tatters & tears. We’re in short supply it seems, and what we do have going around just isn’t enough to satiate the hungry. We make great efforts to aid, rescue and save our fellow man, to make peaceful bonds with our father and mother, and to create lasting unions with special others. Yet in a world population that’s growing steadily more lost and insane from the pressure of living in dying economies, fractured families and war-torn states, our efforts can easily feel hopeless and in vane. Can we give enough to make The Difference without chasing our tails and feeling drained? Is our love hitting the mark?
We know that Love itself is an infinite resource, and that love is all we need, so what’s going wrong? Why is our giving not making ends meet?
We might reason that if everybody loved their neighbour and made it their duty to make 1 other person happy, it could eventually come full circle and everybody would be loved. However, it’s more likely to breed an ever-increasing dependency rather than fostering the life changing qualities of reclamation, ownership, independence and empowerment needed for a revolution that is only born from taking responsibility.
To learn to love oneself utterly and completely is the hardest task. It’s much easier to direct our good intentions, well wishing helpfulness and compassion to others, especially when we deem them more in need than we are. But ultimately, since we do not yet fully understand what it means to truly love, could it be that we are giving less than the full package? Before serving a meal we first need to be taste it. What if we are serving a great idea of love that is perhaps surreptitiously loaded with the toxicity of self-denial, low self worth, and other such insidious and un-delicious things that we’ve inherited from our ancestral history? Is it possible that we so acutely feel what’s wrong in the world that in our attempts to make right, we actually just rehash and re-serve what we think is the opposite to what we’ve experienced?
Unconditional love is energy of, and unto itself. It is not linear or dualistic. It is omnipresent, divine and whole. It exists everywhere and underlies all other personal or universal conditions placed upon it. Love is perhaps something that needs to be uncovered and realised, rather than idealized or theorized, as we tend to do. And how would we know when the love we strive to give is unconditional? Well, if we tested it before we offered it, we would know. We would tell how it feels if we first loved ourselves.
We could practise the evolutionary art of bringing love to our own hidden demons, closeted grievances and buried shames. We could shed the light upon the pain of our own hearts, the wounds of our own pasts and learn to love what even we deem impossible to love of ourselves. In cleaning up our own act of love, learning to relate and bond with ourselves unconditionally, may we then be qualified to be a true servant to the world.
Loving ourselves to our deepest, darkest caverns is how to awaken the creative dragons who sleep where we fear to venture. Unimaginable treasures await, gifts we didn’t know we had, hero stories in the making, inspirations and our secret aspirations are exhumed to illuminate the world. In feeling totality and peace within we become warriors, capable of making shifts in epic proportions.
From co-dependency, exhaustion, depression and lack we might transition to the inter-dependent, empowered, conscious individual we were born to become, contributing and fulfilling our greatest potential. Loving unconditionally that which we humanly are, by that may we ascend, and know what it is to love. Then may we become the leaders of change that we seek to be. Then may we become love masters; conscious beings having original conscious thoughts, making conscious actions, conscious decisions and loving responses to a world gone mad without love.
We are the Love we are looking for.
