Unconditional Love is our true nature
is everywhere, it is everything. So the futile struggle to try and prove that it
is not so, will eventually destroy us...
the root of every life purpose, no matter what it is we DO, is the feeling of
love. Love of self, love of others, and service with love. So really, it matters
little about what we specifically do with the hours of the days of our lives. It
is about how we do it, with what feeling, what intention
Love is simply an unlimited way of being, without
conditions or reservations, absolute
Love is available at any moment
by turning our attention to it and using its wonderful potential to free us from
our limitations. It requires practice and intent to allow this energy to
fully permeate our daily experience. It begins with ourselves, for without
self-love, we cannot know what true love can be. In loving ourselves, we
allow the feeling to generate within us and then we can share it to everyone and
everything around us! That which we send out, returns to us in greater
Life, through unconditional
Love, is a wondrous adventure that excites the very core of our being and lights
our path with delight

-The greatest power known to man is that of unconditional love. Through the ages, mystics, sages, singers and poets have all expressed the ballad and call to love. As humans, we have searched endlessly for the experience of love through the outer senses. Great nations have come and gone under the guise of love for their people. Religions have flourished and perished while claiming the true path to love. We may have missed the simplicity of unconditional love.
- However, to allow us to reach rapidly our capacity to Live our true nature, we need to surrender some ancient programming... not just from our minds, but from our cellular memory, where it is deeply and tenaciously held. Release, Release, Release.
-Be careful what you think; for your life is shaped by your thoughts
If you think hate, then those seeds of hatred will grow. If you think
guilt and pessimism and shame, then those seeds of misery too will grow. Yet,
how wonderful it is to realize that if you think of love, of forgiveness, and of
your divine power within, those seeds will grow and manifest into such a
glorious beacon of light to the world
Once you begin to practice these small but powerful steps, you begin
planting in small ways the seeds of Holiness; you will see a power you would
never have imagined. You will begin to manifest the very power of Love! It will
be through that power that you will be able to love your neighbor, your friend,
and your enemy.
These exercises will help you cultivate this bridging and nourishing
1. Breathing into Your Heart
Fear contracts the heart, closing it down. Breathing into the heart expands it, making space for new feelings and experiences. Before you begin, connect with your heart and notice its size and how it feels. Take about two minutes to consciously breathe into your heart, feeling it expand with each breath. Now check in again with your heart. How has your experience of your heart changed?
2. Reaching Out and Drawing in Love,
Joy, Compassion, Spirit, and God
Our conscious intentions, choices, and actions have great power. By consciously choosing to draw certain energies to you, you become like a magnet for your own good. Drawing in love, joy, compassion, spirit, and God can counteract fear, anxiety, or depression.
This exercise should be done slowly. It can be practiced while standing,
sitting, or lying down. Reach out in front of (or above) you, extending your
arms, hands, and fingers and imagine you are reaching out for love - God’s
love, the universe’s love, and so forth. Slowly draw that love energy in
toward your heart until your hands come to rest on your chest. You can add words
to this exercise, such as “I open myself to love (or joy, compassion, spirit,
God). Love, come rest in my heart.”

Acts of Love
When we allow ourselves to understand the impact our actions have not only on ourselves but the planet we live on; we realize the necessity to take loving action. We each have the power to correct conditions within as well as to affect the world we live in.
There are so many ways to apply love in our everyday lives. Yet, if we do
not take care of ourselves, it is virtually impossible to feel and share love
with the world around us. As an act of self-love, we can begin to educate
ourselves and learn to take care of our physical bodies as well as keep our
thoughts and feelings positive and loving. Nurturing ourselves also teaches us
how to nurture life around us.
Practice constant acts of kindness and you bring kindness upon this
planet. Forgiveness is the easiest and most powerful act of kindness you
can make. Both for yourself and for others, this activity promotes unity,
harmony and oneness that transmutes the old into the new.

ourselves and the planet at the same time. Such is the power we wield every
moment of every day. The choice is ours to create a world of joy and happiness,
love and goodwill.

words opens us to a new way of living and experiencing life. Each moment
holds a new beginning of possibility and an opportunity to create without
limitation. We can let go of what we perceive or believe is before us and allow
our personal potential to shine through. Start each day as a new journey
of self discovery. Let go of yesterday and tomorrow and embrace the power of
now. Remind yourself daily of the newness of life in the moment.
A New Resolution
Within you is an unlimited supply of love and you hold the key to its release. Fear and doubt, anger and hate, have no more control over our lives than we allow. Can it be that simple? It really is. Loving is a choice we can make every moment.
Begin with yourself. Realize that you are a powerful, spiritual and
angelic being and can create with love. Take care of your thoughts and
feelings and make sure they reflect the positive you. Also observe your
actions and insure that they have a loving intent too.
Even when our emotions get the best of us and the stress and concerns of
life become a bit overwhelming, just remember we have tools of forgiveness,
meditation, visualization and letting go to assist us in overcoming the negative
experiences we encounter each day. Some things just are not worth worrying
about or holding on to.
When you are clear and receptive to your own higher, loving nature, you
can then direct this love to people and places around you. Your peace
becomes the peace for others. Your love becomes the love other people
