LOVE NEVER HURTS.
Other things hurt…
Our egoic mental concepts being shredded in the light of truth.
LOVE is the greatest healer.
I’d never be able to teach about love or intimacy in full integrity if I hadn’t died & come back to life many times.
Portals to a new world.
Profound grief, tests of faith & devotion, when I felt like my chest was ripped open & when I thought the river of tears would never end – those were the INITIATIONS.
Those were the call –
A RETURN TO LOVE.
Grief & loss crack us open, they act as teachers (if we allow it).
After heartbreak, our instinct is often to shut down, withdraw, build walls. Hold onto anger, bitterness, resentment as a way to try & protect us from future hurts or disappointment.
Of course time for healing is important, including time to retreat & recalibrate.
And still, even in the midst of the messiest moments, LOVE heals.
I read a line once from a Byron Katie book and she said something like, “When you’re no longer afraid to break open, when you’re no longer afraid of heartbreak, you’re no longer afraid of betrayal – when you WELCOME these things, you’re free.”
Nobody consciously wants these things.
But you have the opportunity to accept when they’re serving a HIGHER purpose. And that’s why you’d welcome it if it comes, because your Higher Self only wants your greatest blessings to be realized.
And for that to happen, we usually have to surrender “our plan” of what’s best for us or our ideas of what things mean to make way for The Universal Truth and what MUST happen FOR us to be the vessel of true devotion.
We don’t know the Divine Plan. We can only trust the process & stay committed to our heart awakening, even in dark times.
Even when the waves of grief return, love is there like a salve.
~Like a warm caress, right when you need it.
~Like a sun bath after a long, cold winter.
LOVE will always be waiting for you to let it in.
Because you are love. xx
