In my search for fulfilling my mantra, “I am the man I want me to be”, I have touched on an area I have not experienced thus far in my travels…
This whole battle lesson is bringing more light into the idea of change coming about through peaceful means, something completely new to me. All based on a simple question, “What if there didn’t have to be an enemy?”
What if I came all the freaking way to Iowa, to be told by a group of guys that don’t even really know me, that they love me? And what if the lesson in hearing this would be to challenge my incorrect beliefs about love? To dig down to the minuscule fibers of the root of my untruth.
The untruth that love has to be built over time. That love is something only shared through deep relationships. What if maybe, love really is abundant and free for each of us, to give in unlimited supply to each other, regardless if we think and act alike.
Further, what if love is an instant decision where we can choose to give & receive at any moment, under any circumstances and are only limited by the amount of our choice? What if love isn’t supposed to be saved for only certain people our paths cross?
To witness love from someone willing to take the time to spend time talking to me about all this and being willing to speak up with words that were obviously spiritual intervention seems to be evidence of this possibility. Along with the uncountable number of people that have been showing me the same example through my entire life. Even before I realized they were doing so!
This brings me to an affirming prayer… God, I want change and it’s possible without having to feel the victim or without a battle, please show me! Please help me to know love as you intend it to be and please help me to see your loving will for me!!
Love is free & unlimited
Love is strangers as well as the most intimate relationships
Love is peace and calmness
Love is the absence of fear & lack
AND MY GOD SAYS “IT IS ALWAYS!”
We don’t have to fight for love
We don’t have to battle to find or give love
We don’t have to earn love
We don’t have to struggle
AND MY GOD SAYS, “WE DON’T EVER AGAIN!”
