To bring love in our lives is to bring God in our lives. God is the energy of Love. If we face truth with love, with kindness, then a new awakening energy uplifts us. The truth of difference, the truth of injustice, the truth of our insecurity, whatever be the reality, bring in kindness in your perception, bring in love in your action while facing the realities of life. Then an enlightened energy lightens life.
Don’t be harsh in facing reality, but be soft and gentle in your perception. Even while drinking tea, eating food, bathing, bring in consciously the energy of love. Then you find life very light and fulfilling.
You should neither be a product of your past nor do you have to be a prisoner of the past. Those who have hurt you in the past cannot continue to hurt you now unless you hold on to that pain through your thoughts… thoughts filled with resentment and regrets. For your own good, learn from it and let it go. Feel that God wants to make you tougher and wiser.
Drop your foolishness.
Reflect on this.
On her first wedding night, a wife went to the kitchen to fix drinks. After a while she came out crying, tears filling her beautiful eyes.
‘What happened sweetheart, what happened, my dolphin?’ asked the loving husband.
‘My love,’ she cried, ‘I tried cleaning the ice cubes with hot water and now they have disappeared.’
Feel that God wants to make you tougher and wiser.
