not because we are used to living
but because we are used to loving.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
Love, isn’t that what this whole world is about? Heaven on Earth is found when we are loving. At least that’s what I’ve found in my own life. It’s a choice my friends to live with a loving heart and not allow circumstances to erode away our loving essence. We all endure painful experiences throughout our lifetimes, but it is how we deal with them and what we do with the knowledge that the experiences bring to us is what counts.
I believe that when we connect with loving hearts and outstretched hands in friendship that we can heal ourselves. For me, it is in being supported and in supporting others that we remain true to our essence and our Dharma (our life purpose). We have the ability to heal broken hearts, financial issues, our health and every other negativity simply by remaining true and steadfast in love. It’s not always easy. I believe it is a choice to look to the good when ugly experiences occur. I do know that this can be a difficult task, but it is not impossible. Being loving is an innate ability that we all share, but sometimes it is hard to reach within and find it in ourselves which is why connecting with others helps to heal us, strengthen our loving selves and to enable us to move forward on our life journeys.
Never lose sight of the love within you. It radiates when given freedom to shine. Allow yourself to shine!
I see your light from here!
