What is Love?

Olivia Curry dreamnectar.com

You speak of it often

But do you know

What love really is?

A connection to the Divine

And all of Creation.

Dear One, love surrounds you at all times, for all of Creation consists of love. The ‘love’ that you seek is not true love. Often it may be companionship, respect, adoration or trust. But the true essence of love is who you are and from where you have come.

Understand that you were created in love from a spark of the flame of the Divine. The Divine which you call many names, but the Essence of Life Itself. You were not made in the image of the Divine. Dear One, you are a PART of the Divine, an extension of the Eternal Flame of Light. You are Love Incarnate. Reflect upon this.

For you, self-discovery occurs as you gather more experiences here upon this earthly plane. This is how you grow. So too, does the Divine experience more of Itself through you. Yes, indeed, even the Divine expands and grows as you do. For you are not separate from the Divine.

You are connected to All of Creation. Each of you are linked to one another through this common birth, this common thread of existence. Through the Flame, the Essence of the Divine which exists within your heart.

You have a memory of life before incarnation, of a life where you were conscious of the loving connections with the All. And since you have been embodied upon this physical plane, there is a part of you which craves the same existence. And so, you seek to duplicate that memory of Unconditional Love. This is part of the human condition, wishing to be a part of, to be loved and connected. When in truth you ARE. That has never changed. It is just your conscious awareness of this connection that needs to be awakened.

Dear One, love is the connection that already exists between you and the All That Is. You no longer need to seek that which you already have. It is time that you allow yourself to be more aware of the true nature of your existence.

You are One. One with all that you see before you. There is an energetic cord which connects you with all extensions of the Divine. You have just forgotten this, an easy thing to do when embodied in a world which perpetuates the illusion of separateness.

What does this mean for you? That which you do to another, you do to yourself, for all are One. That which you judge of another, you judge of yourself, for all are One. This includes all of creation, animal, mineral, plant and spirit. Dear One, the connection is there, has always been there. And it is time to awaken to this truth.

One is not greater than another. One is not more deserving than another. One is not more loved than another. For all are connected. All are One. Love is not the feeling you seek as much as it is the connection between the All. For when you make that connection, through silence, meditation, beauty, kindness, that feeling you constantly seek emerges from your heart and fills your entire being.

Dear One, the pulse of the Divine runs through your veins and outward to connect you with all that you see before you. The entirety of Creation beats with one cadence. Allow yourself to flow with it and feel the immensity of this love of connection.

Seek no more what you already have. Instead, practice focusing on the connection you have with the Divine. Become aware of the divinity within all you meet, all you see, all that lays before you. Just as you leave a part of yourself in anything you create through art or gardening or writing, so too, has the Divine left a part of the Eternal Flame within you and all of Creation. All connected, all as One.

Close your eyes, be still and allow your consciousness to flow like water with the heartbeat of the All. Begin to understand this loving connection ever present in your life. Feel the pulses of light/love moving between you and all you encounter during your day.

Focus on connecting that flame within your heart to the flame of the Divine, your higher self. And as you become more comfortable with this concept, see others also connected to their higher selves through their hearts. Lift them up in this way and change the way you view this world. Help them to see their own divinity within and connection to All.

Love is all there is

And it has been a part of you

Since your very creation.

It is who you are.

Lift yourself and others up

To spark the memory

Of their true nature.

One of Love.

One with All of Thee.

Open Your Eyes

stevebloor@wordpress.com

What do you see?

Can you observe the beauty

That stands before you?

Or does your judgmental mind

Tarnish the sights that you see

With fear and preconceived notions

Of what should be?

Dear One, can you be as a child seeing your world for the first time? For indeed, every day is a new opportunity to see what surrounds you with fresh eyes. Do you take for granted that you know what exists in front of you? When in fact, there is ever-changing beauty in all of creation.

When you observe a tree, do you just say, ‘Oh, yes, a tree. I’ve seen many before.’ Do you assume that you know and understand all aspects of that piece of creation? Do you see the majesty in it or consider what that tree has experienced to reach the stature which stands before you now?

So too, with your fellow travelers in human form. After just meeting someone or knowing someone for a long time, do you assume that you know who they are and what their life experiences have been? Look again, and ask yourself, ‘Do I really see this person for who they are?’ Do you really see them in all of their grace and beauty?

Each of you has a story which you share with others. But that story does not usually include all aspects of your life. You present to others the person you wish them to see, rather than your true self. And in turn you have learned to see only what is on the surface, not what is underneath. You do not see the journey travelled to reach this point in time.

You most often do not see the potential of what is possible for this person. Instead, it is so much easier to place them in a category to be filed away within your mind. A label without the depth of existence which lies under the façade.

Dear One, can you begin to see everyone and everything with a fresh outlook. Can you remind yourself that what stands before you is a divine creature filled with the grace of the Source? Can you do this when you look into a mirror?

Can you just be who you truly are with all the outward flaws. But also acknowledging the inner divinity, that beautiful spark of light which exists within each of you.

Can you begin to see yourself as the loving and joyful being that you are? On a journey of self-discovery for the entire collective consciousness? And understand that self-discovery comes from living through challenges, accepting your world with grace and gratitude for the opportunities placed before you, to grow, to expand, to blossom.

Rather than observing a piece of your world and immediately allowing your mind to categorize it, can you instead just observe through more loving eyes? For all you see before you is a form which overlays the true essence of self. And it is through those cracks and scars, the perceived flaws that the inner beauty shines.

Can you ask yourself, What is the beauty in this, for every thing that stands before you? And as you ask yourself that question can you reflect upon what that part of creation experienced to be where it is at this very moment. Animal, plant, mineral, human, it matters not. Every living creature has a history that brought it to this point in time.

Knowing the details is not as important as honoring the journey taken by everything, everyone before you. All have lived through challenges. All have survived and all are a part of the Source of Creation, divine in nature with inner grace and beauty.

What do you see before you?

Can you acknowledge the journey of all living thing?

And honor them for reaching this point in time.

All are One.

All accompany you on your own personal journey.

Give gratitude for the company

As you walk together, forward

On your way home.

Dearest One with All of Thee.
