The questions I pose daily are ones that I already know the answers to, yet my life continues to reflect both sides of the coin. I do know that the more aware I become, the more love I am able to add to my life and in turn to the energy I send out to the universe. The more love I focus on rather than the internal pains, hardships of life, and the monsterous dischord in the human race, the more I feel there is hope. Love is a magical tool, as is forgiveness. The joy, pain, intensity, fulfillment, and surprise of the moment is a gift and how we live each of those moments affects the rest of them.
I look at Dr. King and the peace marches he braved. His life was less than ideal by anyone's standards. NOT BEING ALLOWED TO DRINK FROM THE SAME FOUNTAINS BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN? Can any of us really imagine that? As an educated and compassionate person, he knew deep within him that this was not a representation of love. His years of observation, education and teachings on love, culminated into one passion for justice and social change. This mission was not new, nor were the words he shared. His passion led to action and the momentum picked up because people know what love is. We know what love looks like, what kindness creates and when they are or are not present. This truth dwells within us all, regardless of who or what we give credit to for creating it. LOVE...IS BEAUTIFUL AND REAL. We all can agree on this.
Being busy, overwhelmed, mistreated or bound by laws are circumstances, outside forces, reactions and excuses to ignore the inside force of love. LOVE is not a new message. I believe we are all made up of love that radiates through the universe. We are social changemakers, whether we consciously enter that roll like Dr. King did, or whether we passively float through life ignoring or even discounting the power of love as a change agent.
I am grateful for the many gurus and visionaries who have focused on love and social change. They inspire me to love even when faced with discrimination, manipulation, isolation and fear. The four items I previously mentioned are agents of separation and separation is the oppossite of love.
Connection. When I focus on connection, love, forgiveness and the exact moment I am living, I tend to do things differently than when I glide on autopilot. I am usually less pleased with the outcome of my moments when I coast thru. My life with the gurus is far from ideal, but others in this world have far more hardship than I can even imagine. I choose to love my life and that creates an entirely different experience than when I sink into self pity, loneliness, chaos or fear. When I focus on the latter I feel defeated and out of control. Yes. Those moments come and go, but the love sustains me and inspires others. What an awesome concept!!
This universal law is better than anything I could have thought up on my own. There are forces, spirits, wavelengths and frequencies for every experience and our reactions to them; As many great leaders have stated, the greatest and most powerful of these is love. In our Western culture and around the world, Love has many frequencies, all of them productive, charged and based in connection, like the cells of our body, the planets in our solar system the ecosystems on our planet...ALL THRIVE ON LOVE.
We are connected. What an exciting concept. Love...The ultimate power trip that transports life to a paradoxal version of itself.
Thank you Dr. King for offering your leadership to a change you knew had to take place. I am grateful and deeply saddened that your life was cut short, as many lives have been for this cause. LOVE...it is within us all. Innaction is not love. Action is easy. Try it and see. Spread this message to every molecule of the universe. Take action. Worst case scenario, you change the world. Best case scenario, you still change the world. Change it to love. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Happy 'act on love' day in honor of Dr. King and those who have risked thier lives for love. Imagine and awake to the reality that no one's dream has to be at the expense of another's. When we truly listen to LOVE and act on it, there is room for everyone to live in harmony...that is true FREEDOM.
