I set the intention today to listen. To feel beyond the words into the meaning, to absorb each reflection that was placed in my path.
As I moved through my day I repeated the affirmation “I choose to create with love” as a mantra, breathing faith into each individual syllable…as in *I* choose to create with love….I *choose* to create with love…etc.
While at surface, some of the words I heard were critical, and might have stung had I remained at surface, all that I felt were affirmations of love.
Halfway through my day, I tweeted “We can choose to live an excuse, or an experience“, then I signed off.
My purpose is to be love. I am choosing to explore love. I am asking others to collaborate with love.
When I hit a bit of external resistance today, I didn’t plug into it, I didn’t argue with it, I didn’t try to understand it. I simply let it be. As I continued to create with love.
As I continue with daily practices of centering into love, I resonate with love. That does not mean that my creative expressions will be understood, accepted, and/or appreciated. That is okay. It does mean that once I center into my intention to honor my commitment of presence, all that is love is naturally amplified as I continue to create and connect. (Can you feel the difference? Such freedom in it!)
I don’t share this with you to say “this is the way”; there are myriad ways to move, create, and connect.
I share this with you as a reflection for you to consider; this is a peaceful way, an invitation to soar, and a reminder to surround yourself with those who wish to soar with you…in love.
And my PS would be: love is ultimate flow, pure joy, peace times infinity…anything else is an excuse, not an experience. (Really, please don’t share criticism or insults in the “name of love”…just not buying it…say, I am afraid of X<Y<Z or don’t say anything at all. Let’s call it what it is. Not love.)
When you begin to feel external resistance, what practices or techniques do you use? When you share, we learn.
Reminder: Linger. Savor. Relish.
