This past weekend I held a reiki class and certified five new reiki masters and all the while I was teaching the class my heart was filled with unlimited and unconditional love. It was such an amazing feeling to be able to hold each of these new master practitioners and teachers in my consciousness as the beautiful beings of light that they are.
This is the essence of life that we seek to embody and to experience in our daily lives. Whether we are parents seeking to love and be loved by our children or children seeking to love and be loved by our parents; whether we are siblings, husbands or wives, boyfriends or girlfriends, significant others, friends or absolute strangers. . . we all seek to love and be loved! This is the return to Source that we all embark upon when we are born in the flesh.
This search is quite the paradoxical journey for we are seeking something that we have never lost. We are seeking something that can never be lost. We are seeking the very essence of all that is which is everywhere present at all times! The consciousness of the ego based on lack, limitation, scarcity, and separation has convinced us that love is outside of us and must somehow be earned, bought, stolen, forced, and manipulated in order to have because we are unworthy of it.
So many of us go throughout our lives believing in the lies that we are pitiful sinners unworthy of love, born in sin and condemned to death (ultimate separation from the Divine), and ever punished to the treadmill of mediocrity because we are unworthy of anything exceptional in life. We therefore go about our days in a zombie like daze, feeding off of the metaphoric flesh of those around us so that we can continue to “live.”
We continue to buy into the ‘rat race’ ideology believing that the one who wins is the one who defeats, conquers and smashes the competition; which results in the confrontations and conflicts that birth such things as inner city crime, White Collar corruption, and war.
Only when we turn our minds back to the Truth, when we Re-turn to the Truth of our being will peace of mind, joy, abundance, and serenity be the norms. And as I have and always remind people, it begins first within the individual and as it is firmly rooted within self, it will begin to out-picture around each person and then further and further into the world will the ripples of light and love vibrate until the entire galaxy resonates in one harmonic song of love.
Look in the mirror today and re-mind yourself that you are loved, you are loving, and you are love itself!
