When we cut the crap and really commit to our true selves, we open to a whole new world. Early on or later, we realize we need to open our hearts. It can be so scary. What on earth could be in there? I’ll cut to the chase.
Everything is in there.
Everything in the whole freakin’ world.
Yes, there is love. And this is what will always be there. It may be on top of everything. It may be below everything. It is everywhere.
Oh, but there’s so much else in there! The whole freakin’ world!!!! And all the world is asking is to be welcomed when it comes. (As we all are.) All the world is asking is to be taken as it is, without interpretation, judgment, fear. (As we all are.) Just to be taken as it is. Welcomed.
So, we welcome our fears. We welcome our guilt, our judgments, our petty jealousies, along with our love and tenderness and gentleness. And it feels pretty good. Sometimes stretchy, sometimes achy, sometimes a little tender and raw. But ALIVE. And yes, full of Love.
Then one day, a question sneaks in… “I loved that guilt and that jealousy…why is it still here?” I don’t know. And another “How LONG do I have to love all this stuff?” As long as it is here.
As long as it is here. As long as it is now. Welcome, Beloved. Welcome what comes. It is all the Beloved. It is all God. It is all our heart and the heart of all. There aren’t any answers. There aren’t any results. There isn’t any ending. The welcoming is all. The All is Love. There is no waiting. You are already there.
Welcome, Beloved. And when we allow this within our own hearts, it naturally begins to seep out into everyone we meet and everything we do. We realize our oneness. Welcome, Beloved. How does the world look when that is our response to all we encounter?
