This Love Within.
Someone once shared to me that we can only truly live within our deepest heart; that space where our fear and suffering reside unmasked.
“Here is where the real work begins,” he said.
Each of us carries the burden of our tears, though through the years we learn to deny. Still, like an infant child crying for its mother – they wait for the warmth of our loving arms, and the reassurance to guide them through.
It is only when we are able to see through the lens of unconditional love, that our healing may ultimately begin.
Were it not for these moments of opening – the joy in a child’s achievements, the mystery of newfound love – how might we ever go on?
People often tell me that it’s far too difficult to let go of their pain. Though, as Carl Jung once wrote it’s far more terrifying to accept oneself completely. And this pain is simply a warning sign, that we are not living our life completely.
We have the ability to love, certainly. Then why can’t we offer the same love to self?
After all, the greatest of love begins within.
In peace, my sweet friends…
