While contemplating the spiritual oneness of love, I always ponder the Divine source of love, God is incredibly ingenious and marvelous in ensuring that we can’t cheat the essence of love. We have to choose to embody love unconditionally in our choices to subsequently sustain the emotional qualities that enable us to love ourselves unconditionally. If a person selectively embodies kindness in their actions, then they will only be kind to themselves some of the time. And it is the relationship that we are having with ourselves that shapes our experience of happiness or suffering. We must love ourselves unconditionally to embrace our gifts and remain connected to our soul’s Divine intelligence for fulfilling our highest expression of purpose and abundance. Therefore, it’s impossible to cheat the divine oneness of love, which means we cannot be happy with ourselves without embodying love unconditionally in our choices. Without embodying love unconditionally, we do not nurture sufficient love for ourselves and remain in emotional suffering and self scarcity. I dare to imagine that our Creator hoped that all would recognize the perfect nature of love and use it to their personal advantage and the universal benefit would be sustained peace in the world. Nothing could be further from the truth as I still ponder why it took me until just last year to make the connection that all my prior discontented reactions undermined nurturing the qualities necessary to accept and love myself. Rather, diminished self love left me with a desperation for a love that was already mine and I simply needed to connect to through my choices. Like many, I wasn’t too concerned about my personal void of self love because I was determined to “find love” out there or accomplish something that would cure my internal sense of unworthiness.
There’s only one love.
It’s unfortunate that our innate nature of love becomes interrupted with the social conditioning that love is something that we need to get, must be given to us or can be lost. I believe that this is the reason why we become conditional with sharing love in the presumably “non important” interactions and subsequently lack the qualities to love ourselves and trust our boundaries in other relationships. We are ultimately only in a relationship with ourselves and every choice or reaction either enhances or diminishes the traits we need to remain in a loving relationship within ourselves. The moment of awakening is recognizing that our actions and reactions are always geared at us. We are either fighting (resisting) or loving only ourselves no matter who our choices are directed at. Our choices only impact others depending on how they choose to respond within themselves, with love or ego. Our ego may fool us to believe that we doing, proving, showing, being superior or even kind to others but there is no “other”, because our God is a genius and there’s only one love. Our accomplishments or romantic relationships will never make us happier if our lifestyle choices and actions do not enhance our capacity to love ourselves.
Love= Self Abundance.
Love is free! It is always ours and will never run out as long as we remain connected to it through our choices. But embodying the qualities of love selectively or conditionally in our interactions, thoughts and choices diminishes our ability to love ourselves and keeps us unhappy, fearful with little direction in life. Imagine for an example that a person gave someone a gift because they felt that the friend would enjoy it, would many of us expect the same gift back in return to be happy? Probably not, rather we’d likely be puzzled if they insisted on doing so as we could have bought it for ourselves if we so desired. Well love is the most valuable currency in the world and the same principle applies. When we share compassion, kindness, etc freely then we remain connected to our innate loving nature towards ourselves. This offers us the autonomy of not needing others to love us to be happy, giving us the confidence and independence to make choices that uphold our well-being and growth. But when we become conditional with love, then we will never have enough for ourselves and are desperately seeking it from others.
Choose love, because we can’t cheat our Creator’s perfect system of oneness. We must abandon all affinity to fear in order to love ourselves and awaken to the wisdom of our greatness. We are in the likeness of God’s love, therefore we cannot ‘presumably’ fear God because we will fear ourselves. If we fear ourselves then we do not trust ourselves and will fear everyone else. And it is the subconscious fear of others that deters much of humanity from growing into our potential. We must choose to be an embodiment of God’s love because this is our true nature and when we stop being true to ourselves, we suffer and remain unhappy.
