Day 297: Daring to love life

Daring to love life.. and have life love me back.

What does it take to trust life? To trust that life has our back and life loves us. That life is our best friend and that every moment, second, minute, hour has been perfectly executed and realised especially for our soul.

To see perfection in all of life is the access to surrender. Surrendering the need to control.

In a conversation with a close friend today, we shared about the visions we have for our life. 

My friend said; "I'm scared to create a vision - What if it doesn't come true and then I'll have to deal with disappointment..."

It got me thinking. To experience wholeness within oneself is to trust - trust that everything is on your side. That life is working with you and for you; not against you. That each and every moment is a gift - yes even the moments that are testing, trying, and challenging; these are the most priceless gifts for you are presented with an opportunity to dig deep and look within. 

To truly engage with life, our hearts are to be whole. A whole heart is ready to meet disappointment, sorrow, upset, anger, resentment... as it knows these states are temporary and fleeting - and that only love is real.

This conversation got me thinking about the courage it takes to love life. 

When you love life, you're willing to swing all out. You know that there is nothing to lose, and everything to gain. In the moments that you are facing adversity, you know you have everything within you to be with the adversity.

To love life is to know that there is no lack. No lack within ourselves or lack within any moment.

It is accepting that we are whole.

To recognise and activate the wholeness that is within us is to have the courage to make choices that are harmonious with our true self.

What is our true self? The self that only knows love.
