If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in hell, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me.
My new Love is an ancient Love returned to meet me. I am in love with the one who invented Love and the one who invented Love is in love with me.
Years ago, during the month of February, in honor of Valentine’s Day I spent many hours in contemplative meditation about love. It came to me so clearly that my primary relationship is with the Infinite Presence. My beloved is THE Beloved, regardless of what relationships I might have. Every relationship is an expression of the One Love I AM.
On that fine Valentine’s Day gone by, as I continued my sittings in contemplative meditation about the nature of Love, what I came to feel was that the Beloved loves me with an infinite capacity to love. My Beloved loves me through everyone and everything, that’s how much my Beloved loves me. What I awoke to is that I want to be THAT Lover’s lover. I want to say with strength and clarity that I AM devoted to the Lover who loves with no beginning and no end. The Beloved holds nothing against me and cannot do enough for me. Everywhere I go, there my Beloved is, rejoicing in me, making the way perfectly designed for me to awaken and remember the Truth.
With this realization I’ve been able to walk (more and more every day), with the sense that the Beloved is with me always. This soulful realization has led me to be more loving, more kind to everyone I meet – knowing that they are an aspect of my Beloved, the source of all love. Cultivating and valuing the awareness of my Beloved has led me to be more receptive to the good that my Beloved is always trying to express for me, through me, and around me.
Daily, I witness my Beloveds devotion to me. Responding to my every thought. Witnessing this display of Love from the Beloved, I am learning true devotion. My Beloved cannot help but give to me, and I am receptive to it or it passes me by. And yet, the Beloved never bears a grudge even if I choose to deny and ignore or make up some story of lack and limitation.
Because I feel so well loved it is easy for me to be more patient, more kind, more generous, more like my Beloved. I AM sweetly learning to walk in the awareness that I give only to my Beloved and it is only my Beloved who gives to me – no matter what it looks like or who is standing in front of me. Always, it is my Beloved.
I am in love with the one who invented Love and the one who invented Love is in love with me ~ and ever shall it be so.
It is from this space of Love that I have learned about willingness. I have learned to Manifest from the Heart and that is what I will share in the online tele-workshop this Saturday. Click here for more info.
