“LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, and you’ll be so happy…and healthy…and prosperous!”
– Lester Levenson
I thought this is the perfect time to write about the subject of Love.
What is Love, actually?
I used to be one of the people that misinterpreted Love. I used to believe that Love means a type of human arrangement for some kind of desired result. It could be a planned family, a promising future, or a myriad of the lustful fantasies. There may or may not work out, but there is no guarantee that Love, Inc. will survive.
Love just seems a mystical word for an extreme, perhaps irrational, attachment to something.
I used to believe that Love is a commodity, something that is provided, exchanged, bought, consumed—always in self-interest, ego, desire, need, and ultimately, based on fear of facing oneself. I used to believe that Love is used only as a gimmick made up to sell Hallmark cards and chocolate candies on Valentine’s Day. I used to think that true love is just a fairy tale selling by Disney movies. Love, Inc. has been used to cover all forms of self-responsibility, keeping one entertained with dreams and hopes, as if one is not in charge of thoughts, emotions, reactions, and feelings. In that sense, I used to despise love.
Little did I know that Love is our basic nature yet most of us look for it in all the wrong places.
Almost all people mistake ego approval for Love. Because it is not Love, it is not satisfying. Consequently, one continuously needs and demands it. And this produces only frustration.
People need each other, and they think it is Love. When one loves, there’s no hanging on to or fencing in of the other one. There is no “longing for” in love because longing is separation. Love means oneness. When you love, you can never feel separation. There is no distance because they are right in your heart.
Human love does not want to share its love with others but rather wants it for its own personal satisfaction. That is not Love. Love is not sex. Love is not a body gratification. Love is not domination. Love is not ownership.
We often withhold our Love until they act in ways that meet our approval. When one loves people because they are nice to him/her, that’s a barter. When one says, “I love you because you tolerate me; I love you because you make me feel good; I love you because you complete me; I love you because of this and that,” that is not Love as one treats another one as an object. We are unwilling to love unless someone meets our expectations. That is not loving; that is manipulation.
We humans have a hard time loving people because we fear rejection. We put up walls around ourselves to protect us from any more hurt and to buffer the pain we are sure is to come. We want love instead of feeling safe to give Love. And Lester put it in a perfect understanding, “Wanting equates to not having.” When we want love, we create the opposite, or rejection.
True love is unconditional acceptance. When you love someone exactly as they are, it is liberating for you and them, and it feels great too!
LOVE IS A BEAUTIFUL THING
Love is our fundamental nature, and it is not dependent on anything external.
Oh yes, I learned this the hardest way. Now I am immeasurably blessed to get in touch with what Love is.
Wholeness and completeness are characteristics of our natural state, which is under all the layers of need and want.
If you’re looking for wholeness in another human being, you’re not going to find it there.
When you think you need someone else to complete you, you’ll be forever wanting, and not having or being the love that you are. Again, wanting equates to not having.
The more you let go of wanting to get love and completeness from another person, the more you bring love and wholeness to your relationship. It will improve your relationship.
When you find yourself looking for love outside yourself, allow yourself to give love instead.
WHAT IS LOVE?
Love has no personal angles.
Love doesn’t require self-sacrifice.
Love is selflessness.
Love is acceptance.
Love is purity.
Love eliminates fear.
Love erases anxiety.
Love reduces insecurity.
Love overcomes loneliness.
Love removes unhappiness.
Love attracts love.
Love flourishes in love.
Love is contagious.
Love is our basic nature, and it is within us. That is why one does not increase his/her love. One merely gets rid of one’s hate. It is impossible to love one person and hate another person. When we love, we love everyone equally.
Love is the answer to all problems.
You are the Source of Love – not in your ego-sense, but in that Awareness, Beingness, and Love that You are.
Could you welcome that and allow the Love that You Are to shine?
LOVE EQUALS SUSTAINABLE SUCCESS AND ABUNDANCE
Lester shared with us that if we became totally loving, all goals would just drop in by a mere effortless thought. If we would Love all the time, we would achieve a very successful and happy life.
Because Love is such a high state. Love is power. It is a cohesive force in the Universe. When you’re loving, you are in tune with the Whole Universe, which is ALL LOVING.
Loving totally would amazingly give us all the knowledge we seek.
So, what keeps us from doing this? Most of us are holding on to non-Love feelings, and we think those will protect us, but in fact, it causes us trouble. The very fear of rejection causes us to be rejected. Anger at one person for something was said causes us to create the same thing over and over again with someone else. Remember, what you focus on expands.
The lovely thing is because Love is such a high state, it automatically will bring up all the apathy, grief, fear, lust, anger, and pride, or non-Love feelings, to be cleared.
Do experiment with this and let me know your gains!
Please do not take my words for this. Simply pay attention to this in your life and allow its magic to unfold within you.
By the way, you can read more about this in my upcoming book!
I Love You unconditionally, and I am so grateful that I get to connect with you, and together, we expand the field of Love and Wholeness! How cool is that? I’m pretty sure that right now the planet needs this energy more than ever.
