Love, What It Means To All Of US...
We all want to be loved. We all want to be loved by our family, friends, peers, people we respect, and our significant others. Love is a many-faceted thing. It is the most important thing there is. It is why we are here. To share in the abundance of love.
Love can be physical, spiritual, mental, emotional, and connects us to different people, things, and circumstances in ways we can explain and in ways we can't explain at times.
Why am I saying all this? Well, in our quest here to better ourselves, our lives, and the lives of those we touch, it is good to always remember that one must love oneself, in a good healthy way, in order to give love to others. You can't give away what you don't have. Sometimes we can muster up ourselves to give more to others, but this is stretching ourselves too thin, like a little bit of butter on too much bread. Burnout. What's going on here? Well, if you do try to give more than you have, you will find the limits of your human ego pretty fast. You cannot force love, or force more or less for long, anymore than you can force a river to make more water or run faster.
The only real solution is to work on yourself. Love yourself more. You are perfect as you are right now. Sure we can all improve ourselves over time in some fashion, but, in this moment, right now, we are as perfect as we will ever be. We are all Children of the Light. We are greater than this physical reality, and our meaning, our significance, is infinite. We just don't see it or understand it because we are limited by our physical reality, our ego, stuck here for a time, to learn our life lessons.
Becoming a better person, a more loving person, especially towards oneself, each an every moment, as a greater source of love in this world, is the only way to grow and improve one's own capacity to love others, and love others more fully, in every aspect of life on this planet. In this way, all aspects of love in your life will grow and flourish as there were meant to be.
So love yourself. Give yourself a hug. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done. Don't be your own critic, but your greatest cheerleader. To love yourself, to heal yourself, to become one with the Source of All Life, to find the answers you are looking for...
