Today explore the power of your loving kindness and the incredible gift that it is to the world.

It seems crazy that so often when things are not going quite right love is the first thing we pull away. Our reasoning to withhold love is provoked in another's poor thinking, unfamiliar actions, difference in opinion, thoughtless error or seemingly uncaring activity. Frequently different religious beliefs or political opinions can separate human beings in a heartbeat. Whatever the negative incident we often pull away like the ripples made when a stone hits the water. ‘That will teach them’ we say under our breath, which sadly only creates barriers and distance. What we do not realize is that in the distancing, the place where love is excluded, judgment and fear are born. We carry this judgment and fear on our backs wherever we go. It shows up in whatever we do too. It clouds and colors our vision and dims the precious light inside.  
 
Does pulling love away really serve us? Love is a most powerful and healing emotion. If we let it love will make new and fresh some of the worst situations. Love develops through the very finest moments of pure connection. Not all connections will be perfect all the time, it’s a given. In those moments do your best to look closely for the delicate moments of loving connection, they are there if you are willing to look deeply for them.  Notice how this search for bits of love actually empowers us to be our best and see the best wherever we are. To love enthusiastically is to live big lives, bold lives, brave and courageous lives. To love sparkles any moment in an instant. Lighten who you are and leave your heavy hearty backpack of fear, judgment and condemnation at the door – it will never be of service to you. Choose love and watch it over flow into the lives you touch all around you brightening the pure light within you. May you forever bring peace to all, life to all, love to all and may the long time sun shine brightly upon every step you take.
