I talk a lot on this blog about opening the heart, but what exactly do I mean? I mean allowing yourself to feel more unconditional love than you ever have before. When you do, you will see just how beautiful life really is.
For a long time as humans, we forgot about unconditional love. We lived in survival mode, and love became a luxury we couldn’t afford. But without love, we are only half alive.
Love allows us to thrive, and in my own life I have been deeply reminded of this. I have been given the highest unconditional love that has shown me what my heart is capable of. In trusting the immensity of this gift, a chain reaction has occurred, leading me to yet more love all around. Now I adore every human being on the planet, and I have new eyes to see the world. I am in love with life, and my heart is opened for good.
Last week, I walked through the airport and saw every human being through the lens of unconditional love. I saw each person’s struggles as though they were my own. I thought how beautiful and courageous each one of us is and how much love we long to hold, if only we would allow ourselves to. I realized that I believe deeply in each of us here and how pointless my ego is. All my cold judgment melted away, and my fear became meaningless. Everything made sense that used to puzzle me before.
Pondering the ills of the world, it’s so clear to me now that all anyone needs is to be loved. It is that simple. And when someone receives unconditional love, they come alive. They remember how beautiful they really are. Everything that has ever hurt begins to heal more rapidly than the mind can believe. You see, the truth is that we settle for problems but none of them are really real. They are created out of limitation that has simply forgotten love.
Unconditional love has no limitation. It has no requirements or deficiencies. You don’t have to feel “worthy” of this love because you already, emphatically are. And once you accept this love, you realize how easy it is. Life used to seem so difficult, but now it is effortless and pure.
Every gorgeous human being who crosses your path is asking you to feel unconditional love, and in so doing, to fully love yourself. They are trying to get you to open your heart as you so deserve. Your soul is asking you to do this right now – to love bigger than you ever thought you could. And all you have to do is let yourself be as you naturally are. Once you experience the fullness of love, you won’t ever want to go back. You will see that all the time before you simply forgot how you’re meant to live.
