cascades through you like a river,
bringing new flows of happiness and love…”

Living Prayers

 

Know that you walk a sacred path, welcome yourself as if you invited your most treasured, precious loved one on this journey.  This treasured friend is you.  You are fully supported by Divine Love and carried through life in ways that no mortal could ever provide.  Warmth and comfort permeates your entire being.  So much has come before you to prepare this moment just for you.  Rest here, know how deeply you are nurtured, supported, cared for and loved.  It’s there for you to tap into for all of time.  This is the fortune, the gifts bestowed upon all of us.  Our only job is to softly open and receive.

Following on the heels of yesterday’s post, A Good Day, I wanted to write more on the theme of self love.  True, wholehearted self love is rooted in a fidelity with yourself.  It requires a commitment, a faithfulness and a willingness to not just know your truth but to live up to it.  This means that you make your choices not based on: is it wrong? is it right? is it good? is it bad? but … is it mine?  Is it mine to do? is it mine to give? is it mine to speak? is it mine to feel?  Is it?  Only you can know this.  These are your Truths and no one else’s.  If you’ve ever forsaken and abandoned yourself in deference to what you thought should be your truth, it’s never too late to write a new history.  Starting now you can renew your vow to be ever faithful to who you are and how you choose to show up in this world.  This is the “heart and soul” of self love.

I invite you to listen to this song below, Love’s Divine, by Seal as if it’s speaking to you on this very topic – the journey to honoring one’s self.

Then the rainstorm came, over me
And I felt my spirit break
I had lost all of my, belief you see
And realized my mistake
But time threw a prayer, to me
And all around me became still

I need love, love’s divine
Please forgive me now I see that I’ve been blind
Give me love, love is what I need to help me know my name

Through the rainstorm came sanctuary
And I felt my spirit fly
I had found all of my reality
I realize what it takes

‘Cause I need love, love’s divine
Please forgive me now I see that I’ve been blind
Give me love, love is what I need to help me know my name

Oh I, don’t bend, don’t break
Show me how to live and promise me you won’t forsake
‘Cause love can help me know my name

Well I try to say there’s nothing wrong
But inside I felt me lying all along
But the message here was plain to see
Believe me

‘Cause I need love, love’s divine
Please forgive me now I see that I’ve been blind
Give me love, love is what I need to help me know my name

Oh I, don’t bend, don’t break
Show me how to live and promise me you won’t forsake
‘Cause love can help me know my name

Love can help me know my name
