"Honor the ocean of love." ~George De Benneville When I am working I am listening to music much of the time, either because I am making mixes for class or because I am playing videos (looking for inspiration and because I LOVE videos) or just because music is my heart. Recently I realized just how much love is being pumped into and out of music. Most songs are love songs. Most artists write inspirational poetry and set it to inspirational music. There is an insane amount of positive thinking and feeling in music. When that realization hit me I began to see the same thing in just about everything. I realized that we spend a lot of time sending love out into the world in so many ways, yet, what we see is the negative. What we pay attention to is the dark and stormy. We put the lower vibrational stuff on the news, in our conversations and we remember what went 'wrong' than the infinite number of 'rights' that happen day in and day out.
We don't appreciate the absolute and complete abundance of LOVE that exists and that keeps us going. Think about your day. You drive to work, possibly, someone allows you to make a left turn. You slow down for someone else. You stop for a pedestrian. You wave at someone for letting you pass. Someone asks you what floor you want to go to in an elevator. You get a random smile from a stranger. Someone is at work so that you can hear music on your radio in your car or in your house. We have systems set up so that we are aware of dangers. We have lights to make sure traffic runs well, signs to keep people safe. Someone prepares your food so that you aren't hungry and you have a choice of what to eat. Kindness and love are the norm. It is how we are the majority of the time.
It makes sense that we focus on the negative, that it stands out. It isn't the norm. We aren't 'used' to it. When something happens that doesn't seem loving we tend to dwell on it, which puts energy into it. What would happen if we didn't allow our energy, our vibration, to match the vibration of the situation or person that was vibrating on a lower level? What if instead of meeting the negative we brought it to our level?
Today (whatever day you are reading this) try to shine light on the dark. Hold your energy at a level that allows love and dissipates anything else. Even if that means you are working on you the whole day… keeping the light part of you in charge. See what happens. See what your world begins to look like.
"Love seeks no cause beyond itself and no fruit; it is its own fruit, its own enjoyment. I love because I love; I love in order that I may love." ~St. Bernard
