Blog for February 2014
Does the month of February, with Saint Valentine ’s Day right in the middle of the month, remind us of the love in our life or our lack of love? All of the relationships in our lives are expressions of Spirit. What is the primary love relationship in your life? Is it your partner, your parents, your job or your lover? Your primary relationship should be with your Source, your Higher Power or whatever you choose to call God in your life!
Before we can reach for an outer relationship with someone, we must form a good relationship with ourselves. Your lover is not to be found out there somewhere; it is a new depth to be discovered within yourself. You are the person you have been waiting for. We give from our overflow. How do you treat yourself when you have made some silly mistake? Do you find it easy to accept a compliment? Are you quick to divert a flattering remark?
As a student of Truth, it’s important to realize that you live at the very heart and center of the Universe of love. We need to give way to love. To release something within ourselves that is already present within us.
Forming relationships is not about finding the right person; it’s about being the right person and a new level within ourselves to be discovered.
