A Letter of Love

I continue to share these Letters of Love for what they may offer you. While they are often written for someone specific, there are many times the message is more universally felt. If you'd like one of your own (which will be kept confidential and private, if you want it to be) visit Notes-of-Love.com for info.

You will survive this. This is a blip in your radar screen. You have taken huge steps along the path of life, and have moved up each time. You must recognize the progress instead of focusing on the losses and pain. It is really a perceived loss which isn’t a loss at all. It may seem to be one, and yet you will gain more than you could possibly imagine from this time. You have no idea what is in store for you, and each step you take brings you closer.

Before XXXXX you were resigned. You thought there would be no one. Had you ended life, you would have missed the incredible time that you had with XXXXX and the awesome gift you got from it. You can’t see the big picture, but you can see the smaller parts, and while some may look like tears, they may be flowers yet to bloom.

Who you are is not who you’ve been. You would never have been able to have an experience like this with who you once were. You had to give up certain ways of looking at things to allow for this to happen. You had to give up who you believed yourself to be. Each step is an important step, and you must trust the love that brought you here.

We know you are thinking and believing that love brought you to pain. But love only brought you an experience. Your perspective created the pain, and in the same way it was created, you can allow yourself to let it go. You can finally allow the anger of your past and not being able to express yourself and not being heard, go. You can express yourself and be heard at any time to anyone anywhere. You don’t need an acknowledgment of your expressions. You don’t need someone to validate them – or you.

You wouldn’t be sitting here, learning of this lesson, had it not been for what has occurred. And it is a perspective worthy of absorbing and growing from. When you look back at XXX you see so much of who you became because of what happened. You had so much to give, and got so little in return, and yet you allowed yourself to express yourself and you allowed yourself to love. You have received some very profound gifts that you have been able to share with others.

And we hear, what about ME?

What about you? You are who we are. We are you. You are others. Others are you. It is all ONE. And when you realize that you will be giving yourself the greatest of all gifts because within that there is no lack. There is only support. There is only Love. There is only growth. Understanding. Compassion. Love. All of the things that you think you seek. They’re all within you right this very moment. When you acknowledge them, you no longer feel the need to be filled. There is no need when there is plenty. When love overflows, nothing is left in want. Nothing. Not even you. You give of love, and you have love. It really is that simple. You are love, you are in love. There is no love to find, and there is no love to give, as love is already in place for everyone at every moment, every where.

Acknowledgement is what is needed more than love. Because LOVE is present right now. Right this moment you can be embraced in love. You can feel love. You can know love. Right this moment, and it is not conditional on anyone anywhere. It is NOW. You can feel the shift in your energy with these words. You can feel how things move without moving.

Life is fertile. Life is ever changing. The mistake people make is in believing that things will stay the same. An even bigger mistake is wanting them to stay the same. They have an opportunity to always be, and get, better, and yet human beings hold onto the old, the known, and the things they think they want, and they run the risk of losing out on the things they truly do.

The time for those to awaken to the things that truly matter is now. The things that truly matter never have price tags, despite what others believe to be true. Many think that value needs to have a number assigned to it. That is why there are lists. That is why there are boxes. That is why there are graphs, bar charts, bank accounts. That is why there are ratings. That is why there are so many things that divert from the things that are lacking in form - physical form, that is.

The physical form of something is only an eggshell. It is only a covering. Knock it the right way and it can crack. Knock it a different way, and the shell can be remarkably strong, keeping things out, and other things in. Limitations are formed when a form is attempted to be maintained…it doesn’t matter what that is from a relationship to a vehicle, to another type of vehicle, the body. Everything has a form, and every form can and will change moment to moment. And what you do with it will have you standing, sitting, crying, crawling. You may want to crawl into a corner to think that you are safe. The problem is that corner isn’t safe. That corner is as flexible and changeable as anything else. There isn’t much between you and the outside world, and it can be gone in one fell swoop by words or actions, by creation or by destruction.

You create when you grow or you destruct. The difference is only a matter of perspective. Which is it that you do? Do you grow or do you destruct? It’s all the same in terms of the energy and the result, however, it is what you see and what you experience that will take you to the next moment of growth which is right now and now and now and now. It is endless and it is unstoppable.

The question is how unstoppable are you and how unstoppable are you willing to be?

Perspective Short: Knowledge (CY)

Perspective Short: Perfection

What if perfection doesn't look
the way we think it should?

What if nothing's perfect
and everything is?
