Attitudinal Healing Principle #11
NOTE: Please stay tuned for a NEW SERIES of Blog Posts starting in 2019!
OUR BODY, OUR “SELF” AND LOVE
Through the exploration of the principles of Attitudinal Healing, we learned in Principle #1 that “Love is a given; a permanent energy in the universe and in each human being; it is our natural state.” When we extend or receive love, it comes from the core of our being, our spirit that is connected to all and through God. When we think about love we often think about the heart, but it is more than our physical heart or body. It is an essence that we give and receive…so it is more than just our body. During surgery, can the surgeon touch love inside of us? Can we touch it? No, it is not of the body but of the spirit self. It is more than our body. So, even when our body does not inhabit this earth, our love, which is energy, continues on. Can you feel the love of someone who was really close to you whose body has departed the earth plane? I sure can from my parents, as they were so unconditionally loving to me. Because of this it might be easier for me to feel that, but love energy is always eternal; it never dies.
In Richard Bach’s book, “One”, there is an interesting and beautiful chapter when the wife dies and is yelling to her husband to feel her love, but he is in too much grief to listen. They learned that in dying, our soul overcomes death, as many spiritual beliefs also believe, but he was not ready to listen to her, as they had agreed to do when either of them passed on. To feel love, we must stop our “left-brain thinking”, actions and drama because love is not from thinking or overload; it is from feeling our essence and the essence of others.
When we do not fear death, we can live fully in our LOVE essence, and live life fully.
If we fear death, then do we fear life? Perhaps. When we do not fear death, we can live fully in our love essence, and live life fully (this does not mean we take unreasonable risks). The quality of life relates directly to our fear of death. As we have learned, love and fear cannot co-exist as love is pure and can be only love. I have had the privilege of being with a few people who were in their last hours of living on this earth. I thought it was going to be a really hard thing to do; but it wasn’t. It was an honor to just love them and share in this spiritual journey with them. When one of my cats died suddenly and previous to that experience, I could not be in the room when any of my other cats were euthanized. This time, I was able to stay with him and just love him. Of course, times like these are sad and we cry, but it is also a privilege, and can even be a joy, to be in that essence. A joy to know that LOVE lives on!
CHANGE AND INNER PEACE
This principle has usually focused on love and death. But CHANGE is a “death” of a past experience and transformation into a new experience. We encounter change in relationships, employment, homes, things, health, etc. I, personally, have experienced big changes in my life in many of those areas listed. Leaving a home where my children grew up; leaving a job I thought I would retire at; having a couple of relationships fall apart when I was “in Love”. These can feel life changing at the time and hard to imagine something better will come along. I have come to realize that my condo is such a good thing in a number of ways and its location. I have met some amazing people in more recent jobs. And learned more and more about myself in relationships.
With every loss there is a gain as it is important to learn from our past so we have a happier more successful “now moment” and future…and to experience inner peace no matter what is happening. I have more and more inner peace with less and less expectations. As we believe that love is the essence of our being, and healing is letting go of fear, AND we can be peaceful no matter what is happening around us…we realize that change and death need not be feared. (AH Principles #1,2&8)
KNOW that love is eternal, changeless, timeless and has no form.
So, once we KNOW that love is eternal, changeless, timeless and has no form, even with changes in life and in facing our own death and after the death of a loved one, we do not need to feel fear…and we can still enjoy life and continue to experience LOVE.
No matter the question…Love is THE Answer…moment by moment!
