For instance, it wasn’t long ago that I had resigned myself to living as a recluse or a hermit. I quite liked the idea of not being in love with anyone again in life, ever.
At the age of 47, why should I have thought differently?
Please laugh with me here!!
But alas, Life had its way, and sent me a mighty lover, and I am totally in love.
I mean deeply in love. Crazy!!!
But before you go thinking this is a piece about hopeless romanticism, stop! I am not a hopeless romantic, and I don’t subscribe to fantasy or fairy tales (as you may have already gathered.)
What Life has taught me is that if I remain in alignment with its flow and forces, and act from a place of surrender, not fear, it will bless me with slices of heaven.
Fear of never having love, fear of losing it, fear of rejection, all of those fears are against Life; I have no fear.
But what I have is Love.
A deeply deep Love.
And this love didn’t come from a place longing or craving; neither of those emotions were present in my mind when this love came into my life.
My mind was focused on gratitude for what I already had – my children, my health, my home, my thriving business.
Acting from a place of gratitude and acceptance, the love that has come into my life was born from those energetic places – the places of acceptance of Life itself, on its own terms—not desperation and fear of loss or craving love.
I loved myself, and in exchange, Life granted me with more love, which gave me the power to do away with fear.
Loving myself and accepting Life created the space for romantic and blissful Love to enter my life.
As you might well imagine, I’m faced with daily questions about the future of love in others’ lives; whether a relationship will work out, whether a reunion will happen, whether a new love will arrive. Those are daily questions, and I welcome them, but my hope is that this blog helps you gain perspective.
Now, I will be the first to admit that I used to question those things in my life, and be a total prisoner to my worst fear – the fear of never having been loved in life.
What a silly fear that was! And Mother Life has graciously taught me that!
Each person that enters our lives comes with a unique experience for us, one that we need to learn from. We are here to learn from the experience of being human. What is the sense in trying to make others conform to our ideas about what WE WANT for our lives?
That is control, and control is fear in psychological disguise.
If we attempt to control, we meet with disappointment and pain until we learn to surrender to the beautiful Mother, called Life.
Accept Love into your life. Start with Yourself. Surrender.
