You know how phrases get caught up in your mind. You could call in an affirmation, a mantra, or simply something that is stuck in your head. For a few days now this is mine….Go where the love is. I have struggling lately trying to get my footing again in the world. I make a few steps forward and then life comes along and blows me down a different path. And I need some healing, some way to stay in my center. So, go where the love is.
Love is everywhere. It is not a person or a place. It is that and more. Love is a feeling of being wanted, being welcomed. Whether walking among the redwoods or laughing with a friend, there I find love. Love is a feeling of peace in my heart, I can find that in a sanctuary or by the water. I can find love in a good meal, a good book, watching a little league game or while writing this. Love is a state of being, a calmness within that allows me to recognize I am supported by the Universe and that God wants only to give me my good.
And my good is love. So why not go where the love is? Why spend any time in places or with people that do not support this? Sometimes I am strong and I can go out there and be the love of the world. I can take on the haters and show love anyway. I can let their opinions and negativity roll off my back. I am armored in love. I can lead the way. Those are amazing times.
And there are times like now, I am more fragile, I have broken pieces. I love this practice from Japan. How they fill the cracks with gold and the piece becomes even more valuable. I want to fill my cracks with love. That is how I will heal myself. I will be richer, more valuable and have more depth in my soul. I will let these jagged pieces smooth with love. I will patchwork myself back together with love. I will breathe in love and I will breath out peace. Love is the strongest force in the Universe. Love always wins. Love is stronger than hate, sadness, fear, despair, anger, apathy. So letting love heal, I will be amazingly strong. My cracks and fissures full of the most valuable energy ever known.
So I have to go where the love is. And that means listening to the call of my heart. That means saying no to the people, places and things that do not love me. In those circumstances where I know I am out of balance I have to step away. I must close my ears when I hear things that do not support loving me. When I feel uncomfortable or anxious I have to look at what I am doing and who I am with. I have to be willing to step away and say this does not support my healing.
That can mean letting go of people or circumstances already in my life. Although I am pretty careful about who I let in,sometimes someone comes in through a crack. Perhaps I am lonely or emotional. Maybe I think they need me, my ego wants stroking. It could be an outgrown job or social connection. Old friends, who somehow have hung on. And it is mainly me, holding on to fears and outgrown ideas. Hanging on to the past to avoid the future. Clinging to today because tomorrow seems scary and unknown.
So right here and now this is my mantra, this is my daily prayer…..Go Where The Love Is.
And when that moment is done, again, Go Where The Love Is. and again and again. Stay where the love is. Only accept love. Fill myself body and soul with love. Seal those cracks with love. Be Love. Live Love. Breathe Love. Stay where there is Love. Because that is what will save me, Love will save me. Love will make me whole. And then, armored in Love, I can step out as warrior for Love. So then, when you need to “go where the Love is,” I am here for you.
