February is the month of LOVE. In a few days it will be Valentine’s Day…a day very focused on romantic love. I am composing this on Super BowlSunday, a day when it seems like most of the world loves football. We often say we that we love certain foods. There is the immutable love for our children. Love for family members and our pets. We talk about unconditional love yet live in a world where most love has conditions. I could go on endlessly with the types of love that we experience and are capable of. I could go on and on about the many different ways that we use the word love.
A Course in Miracles says that ‘every act is either an expression of love, or a call for love, regardless of how unskilled it may appear”. It builds on this idea with a statement that ‘forgiveness is a shift in perception that removes a block in me to my awareness of love’s presence”.
What is your response? Get curious about your response. Give some thought to these ideas.
As a young woman, my life experience and upbringing would have pushed back at these ideas had I heard them then. Now, years after first reading these words, I have an expanded awareness of the truth of these words that allows me to experience more love, deeper love. It allows me to love and accept myself in ways I once unable to do. It allows me to be much more connected to spirit.
I realize and recognize a continuous deepening and understanding of these words that allows me to be open to; to see and experience love in ways I did not recognize before.
If we truly understood and practiced the universal love that A Course in Miracles is describing, would all of our ways of giving and receiving love be more expansive and more abundant? I believe so.
During this Valentine’s week I want to invite you to spend some time thinking about the ways you show love and the ways love is shown to you. Using your ability to notice what you are noticing, notice when you feel loved and when you don’t. Notice when you are being loving and when you are not. Notice how you feel when you are showing love. Ask what ways you could be more loving and what you might need to feel more loved. List 5 things you love about YOU! Make note of one thing that would make you feel more loved and ask someone for it.
If you get stuck, call me. I know many reasons to love you!
Sending you bushels of love,
