Unconditional Love is our true nature

Love is everywhere, it is everything. So the futile struggle to try and prove that it is not so, will eventually destroy us...

At 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

Unconditional Love is simply an unlimited way of being, without conditions or reservations, absolute

Unconditional 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 measure.

Life, through unconditional Love, is a wondrous adventure that excites the very core of our being and lights our path with delight

God is Love – God within is Love

-God is pure Consciousness, Love
-Our true nature is Love, Unconditional Love
-Connection though Prana
-Connection through breathing E-P-I-P.
-Feelings of Loving -kindness, Compassion, Sympathetic Joy, Unconditional Love

-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.

 Cultivating a Mind of Love
-Love is patient, kind, confident, humble, sacrificing, giving, forgiving, truthful, and enduring of all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and never fails.
-Love lives by giving and forgiving. Self lives by getting and forgetting

-Let focus your mind on love.
-Let words of love flow from your mouth.
 -Let your actions be selfless and done in love.
 -Regardless of who the person is, practice loving them as you love yourself.
 -Imagine that you are looking at yourself in that person's shoes.

Control your life, your thoughts
 -Realize that you are the one in control of your life. You decide what to say to others- kindness or hatred? You decide how to live your life- fearful or empowered? You decide who, how, and when-to love or not to love? How will you live? How will you treat that person as if He/she were you?

-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.

Cultivating Heart Energy
Research proves that fear, along with anger and sadness, depresses our immune systems, while love, appreciation, gratitude and joy enhance the functioning of this system. It has also been said that love and fear cannot coexist. The heart chakra is said to be the seat of love, the connection between ourselves and others.

These exercises will help you cultivate this bridging and nourishing heart energy

        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.”


Love meditations.
     -A loving-kindness meditation (Metta Meditation) - Metta is the practice of friendship of loving-kindness. It is cultivated as a meditation and a way of life along with compassion, joy and equanimity. These practices strengthen self-confidence, self-acceptance and a steadiness of mind and heart, revealing our fundamental connectedness to all life. 

        -Compassion meditation: (Karuna meditation)- Karuna meditation is a concentration, compassion practice addressing the awareness of suffering and the difficult states of aversion and/or pity that often arise in response to pain

        -Sympathetic joy meditation (Mudita meditation) - Mudita is the heartfelt joy for others in their own good fortune. The challenges to Mudita include envy, jealousy, and judgment in all forms – diminishing others to support one’s own sense of worth, or self-criticism – all painful responses that create suffering. It includes psychological perspectives on self-esteem as well as resources for maintaining hopefulness, cheerfulness and optimism.

        -Unconditional Love and Equanimity meditation (Uppekha Meditation) - Equanimity is the balanced spaciousness of mind that sees all things clearly for what they are and is the goal of Spiritual practices.

Metta, Karuna, and Upekkha are understood as the three spontaneous responses of the heart to relational situations, equanimity in response to neutral, painful, or fortunate situations

Love and Peace
So many people are calling, praying and demanding peace upon our planet right now.  Let us all be reminded that true peace is found when we are at peace within.  Be at peace and you create a world of peace. Do not just pray for peace, become peace itself. 

Take the time to find the natural peace that resides within and you add to the real feeling of peace to everyone and everything around you.  Let go of your fears and doubts and that of others.  Be extremely discerning in what you focus your attention upon right now and question the messages and reflections.  If it is loving, expand it.  If it is less than loving, critical or in any way invokes hatred, fear or anger, release it and return to peace. 

Create your own pictures of reality and fill them with peace and love.  Walk in joy and harmony and know that all is well.

You can add your energy to this vision by contemplating peace and tapping into the higher desire for peace at any moment. 

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.

This magnificent planet is filled with opportunities to experience love, tolerance, peace and joy. When we, as individuals, realize our potential to love unconditionally, we transform 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.

Every moment of every day is a new beginning. This can be a powerful mantra or affirmation. The meaning held in these 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 feel.

Ways to Generate Love
