Love who you are and reward yourself with kindness.
“Love flows through my very being. It touches everyone I meet and leads me to greater compassion.”
~ Louise Hay ~
The true dynamic of love becomes lost when the ego is engaged. Egoic love seeks to possess while spiritual love seeks to give.
“As we mature, we can experience the love that exists beyond sexuality and honor the unique individuality of the other. We begin to understand that our partner often functions as a mirror, reflecting unseen aspects of our deeper self and supporting us to become whole.” ~ Osho~
Face your fears. Honor their presence as a teacher in your life. Then, when fear arises (especially in aspects of love), you can begin the process of transformation by looking within rather than running away. Seek the gift in challenging situations. Once you have integrated the message, risen above fear or cultivated a deeper understanding of your souls journey, your life will reflect a deeper sense of grace and intimacy in your relationships.
Everything is an opportunity to awaken. Be grateful to those who push you into the aspects of your spiritual practice you would rarely choose to enter on your own. Let love breathe new life into the journey and celebrate this new phase of discovery.
