And in the arms of LOVE
Heaven’s just a heart beat away
I’ll be your light in the dark
Your shield from the storm
Your shelter from the rain
And in the arms of love
I’ll lift you above
all the madness, all of the pain
And you’ll be safe and warm,
here in the arms of love.
I’ll keep you far from harm
Here in the arms of love.
–song performed by Micheal Bolton on his album Love Songs
Just a quick reminder, in the Awakening Women’s Community, when we use the word LOVE we are not speaking of Hallmark sentimentality, or codependent attachment (“you complete me”). We are speaking of the underlying creative power of life and its expression not only here, in this present moment, but in every present moment expanding into all time and space.
And the truth of your being is that you live in the arms of LOVE. It cannot be any other way. You were born from LOVE’s intention that you be here, being you.
This LOVE beats your heart.
This LOVE breathes your breath.
Have you noticed? Is “make my heart beat” on your to-do list today? How about “breathe every minute of every hour of every day of every week of every year”?
No? Of course not. LOVE is on the job 24/7 so you don’t have to be.
That is safety and security you long for! It has been right here with you all along.
All that we discuss here in the Awakening Women’s Community in terms of tips, techniques, ways of orienting to life and to your essence are there to assist you to get out of your own way, and let the maximum amount of LOVE into your life and into your heart.
The more you allow LOVE in, the more your spirit will soar, your mind will be free, your emotions (the whole spectrum, not just the “good” ones) will flow, and your physical body will reflect health and vitality.
When all your bodies (physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual) are aligned and receptive to LOVE, LOVE will flow into your life from your Creator, and through your heart, out into the world around you. You are the channel for LOVE’s presence in the world. You are the LOVE ambassador. It is a vitally important job, Beloved!
As you live in the presence of your own unique LOVE song, you will discover the possibilities and choices that allow that LOVE to manifest.
As you see this happening more and more every day your sense of fulfillment will expand exponentially. Your sense of “hunger” will diminish. Your sense of “neediness” will diminish. Your thoughts of “lack” will diminish. You will feel full, and satisfied.
You will learn to use “negative” emotions to achieve “positive” purposes. Upsets and challenges will become useful guides to further expressing your LOVE. How cool is that? There is no need to avoid “bad” feelings because they are such powerful guides and they assist you to remember who you truly are, and shift into empowered perspectives on life’s circumstances. Every challenge becomes a way to allow more LOVE to consciously flow through you.
Your beliefs and attitudes will slowly and gently begin to reflect LOVE’s vision for the world. Your confidence in the power of LOVE will allow you to be optimistic about the direction your life is taking. And when you allow yourself to live in a community of like-minded women, the collective power of this LOVE will move mountains. The vision of Heaven on Earth will move closer and closer into full expression.
When you live in the presence of LOVE you will feel the arms of LOVE around you more and more of the time. People will be drawn to your LOVING energy on a daily basis. Your sense of loneliness and isolation will disappear and you will know the joy of being intimately connected both to your Creator and to your world.
In this way you live as LOVE’s ambassador, playing the part you came here to play as LOVE’s ambassador, supporting the manifestation of Heaven on Earth.
Does that mean you will never feel pain, never experience loss, never suffer again? No. This experiences are part of life. Part of the cycle of birth and death, and those experiences will continue to play a role. But when you live in the arms of LOVE you do not have these experiences alone. And when LOVE becomes your reality the eternal presence of all within the ALL provides comfort and a sense of connection to everyone and everything.
And with this sense of eternal connection we can both live and die peacefully, grounded in serenity and acceptance.
Can you see, Beloved, how life is meant to be experienced? Instead of resisting the cycles of life we are meant to flow with them. Held safely in the arms of LOVE we can say “YES” to life in all its expressions.
When you open to this experience in community with other women, someone is there for you during the times when the sense of connection is stretched very thin. Within the sacred container of our shared presence we know we are not alone, and we can receive comfort in that.
