One of my favorite CD’s is Marianne Williamson’s, “Meditations For A Miraculous Life” . In the evening prayer meditation she talks about being gratefull for the lessons received during the course of the day that invited compassion and love.
In this time of self-reflection she reminds us to ask for forgiveness for the ways we withheld love and that tomorrow we may do better at BEING LOVE.
As human beings we don’t always emulate the qualities of love. We are influenced by our past, cultural conditioning, and day to day experiences that either brings out our best or our worst.
Each of us at has screwed up, made mistakes, betrayed another, broken promises, and fallen short of our ideals. Surrendering self-contempt is an act of self-love. Forgiveness invites love and compassion. It is through our humanness that our greatness emerges.
When we are willing to soften our heart towards ourselves we can be more authentically loving towards others.
What are some of the ways you are self-punishing?
Do you speak to yourself lovingly or with harshness?
And when you mess up, are you compassionate and forgiving?
The feelings and thoughts you are experience reveals what is asking to be healed. Being willing to separate the truth from the story or drama that is being activated within you allows you to choose to show up from the best of who you are.
And when you are not at your best, make amends with yourself so that you can create opportunities to restore harmony and connections with others.
During those times when you are being unloving towards yourself, imagine you could see yourself through the eyes of the Divine.
What would love see?
What would love say?
What would love do?
Grief and sadness lies beneath anger. As long as we remain judgmental and unforgiving, we are unable to release the pain and come to a place of resolution and inner peace. When we can view each experience as a healing and growth opportunity, we can release the pain.
Forgiveness, compassion, and love is the pathway to joy.
Joy connects us to love, which is our true nature and the essence of God. Approaching life with wonder, like we did as innocent children, invites us to see and attract options and possibilities that can resolve challenges and bring Grace. In wonder we delight in the blessings, gifts, and wonderfull surprises The Divine has for us.
Imagine looking through the eyes of love every day.
Imagine if we all did that.
Imagine the world we would create…..
