“You are where you are because of who you were, But where you go depends entirely on who you choose to be”
How do we get closer to Source, Creation, The Universe – What do we need to do or be?
Perhaps a good place to start would be to go back to where it all began and unravel the mystery of life as we know it – consider what we believe to be true about Divine Love and reassess why it is that this Love is ‘conditioned “ out of us!
If we acknowledge that we emerge into this reality from an expanse of ‘Unconditional Love’ at a soul level, then although we are the physical embodiment of it, we are thrust into a world paved with contrast and we change as a result of it.
But there is a reason why we leave our ‘natural state of being’ otherwise there would be no need to be physically incarnated here – contrast would not exist, desires would not be born from contrast and consequently, no expansion would take place for us as individuals or as a collective.
Unconditional Love is neutral and has no opposite polarity but “100% unconditional love means to define your own expansion”
Conditional Love comes from ego and is a polarized emotion. This means that it has an opposite emotion – that of hate and all the associated feelings. It focuses on control and perceives that we are the authority for someone else’s life.
So herein lies the contrast – life takes over and we wonder how we can focus positively on the person who is verbally and physically abusing us?
So when we are in complete alignment with source energy and sharing source perspective – only then can we experience our true nature of Unconditional Love. Practising the art of detachment is one way of ensuring that feelings of forgiveness and love remain intact, irrespective of the contrast, and in those valuable moments, even if fleeting, we can ultimately feel the connection to our Creator!
Tell everyone you know: “My happiness depends on me, so you’re off the hook.” And then demonstrate it. Be happy, no matter what they’re doing. Practice feeling good, no matter what. And before you know it, you will not give anyone else responsibility for the way you feel — and then, you’ll love them all. Because the only reason you don’t love them, is because you’re using them as your excuse to not feel good.
Abraham – Hicks (Excerpted from Asheville, NC on 4/30/05)
We need to close the gap between where we are in terms of our own perspective (Conditional Love) and that of our Source (Unconditional Love). Understanding this and embracing life’s challenges, gives us renewed hope of bringing our own unique expression of “who we are” to the world.
“The Divine has intended you into being and given you the assignment to explore life through certain perceived limitations. You are meant to learn about life and all its complexities, especially learning about how to be in community with others…”
