You have within you a beautiful soul. The essence of that soul is love. Many of us are aware of a yearning to know the love in our souls and to express this love in our lives. I invite you to have an experience of the unconditional love of souls for one another and for all of Creation. It's a simple exercise: read the next three paragraphs, then stop reading and take time to move into the experience.
What does unconditional love look like? First, unconditional love knows no fear. Fear of not being received, fear of not having love reciprocated, or fear that you will not be understood. Second, unconditional love has no needs. Third, unconditional love knows no limits. It arises within you and pours out of you like a fountain.
Here is the exercise: imagine something that you love, where the simple thought of that person, object, scene, animal, music, or whatever it might be brings up in you a sensation of pure and fearless love. For a time – seconds, up to several minutes – allow yourself to experience that unconditional love, using whatever image works for you.
When you do this, you are experiencing the love of souls for one another and for all of Creation. That is the essence of sacredness. From that sacredness arises the ability to share your love with others without fear. No expectations, no reticence, only generosity and an unshakable conviction that the world needs and will receive, as it is capable, the love that we have to offer.
Here is a small gift for you. Do this: bring up again the image of whatever it is that helps you to feel unconditional love. Hold the image long enough to feel the flow of your love; then replace that image with the image of your own face, your own being, your own self. For a few moments, give yourself unconditional love.
I invite you to make a regular practice of allowing unconditional love in you. Do this daily if you can at a regular time such as first thing in the morning. Do it whenever your thoughts are guided to it. I know that when my thoughts are drawn toward sacredness, I am receiving guidance to go there from a source far wiser than myself. I do my best to follow that guidance, trusting that there is good reason for it in that moment.
You are sacred. May you be blessed.
