In a world that feeds you a steady stream of drama, you can be at peace. In a world where the news would make you think things are spiraling down by the moment, you can discern a greater truth – love is everywhere – present, emerging, expanding, and interacting in the most beautiful ways!
It is present in the interactions between caring human beings. It is present in the joy between you and the animals you adore.
Love flows through you as you lovingly water and trim a houseplant or plant a seed with loving hope in your garden. It is streaming into the meals you cook with love and the meals you reheat as you look forward to nourishing your body.
Love is in the grass under your feet, growing and reaching for the light. Love is in the coffee or tea that you drink. Your beverage originated in a seed that waited patiently for the rains, pushed through the surface of the soil, reached for the light, harnessed the energy of a star millions of miles from your planet, surrendered to the harvest, processing, and packaging, rode for miles in a box or bag or container via planes, trains, ships, and trucks, and then sits here, in your mug, allowing you to extract the best of its journey, all for your morning beverage. Love lives to love you. You live to love.
There are, of course, people on your planet who have forgotten the love attempting to push up from within them, as much as the force of life pushes a seed out of the shell. They fight it, resist it, deny it, and disbelieve it. They feel they must take matters into their own hands. Can you imagine a seed straining against the growth within, trying so hard to stay in the shell and dictate how it will receive the water that could soak into it freely? Can you imagine that seed trying to build irrigation canals to funnel more rain to itself because it needs more and more water to help it break free from its own resistance? We know this is a small analogy, but perhaps it enables you to see that those who resist the love trying to rise from within are straining, stressing, manipulating, bullying, angering, even killing when all they have to do is surrender to their own hearts.
Love is in a constant flow, continually expanding. Love is always calling you towards that which you truly desire. Love is saying, “Look over here. There is a person you want to talk to who has a bit of information about that job you want.” As you look for the item you want in your market, you notice a person that seems familiar. You have the urge to talk to them. Love is calling.
Love is present in the cells of your body inspiring them to inspire you by creating feelings from within. I am thirsty. Are you listening? Did you get that drink of water? Love is saying I need to stretch. You feel a tight spot and a natural impulse to move. Can you allow for this?
Love is present in the little bug on your carpet who is waiting patiently to see if you are going to kill him or carry him out. He is surrendered, knowing he can’t control you but must allow for love to carry him into nature or into the light. He has instincts. He’d rather live just like you, but he has no real fear of the illusions of death. He just asks for your love either way.
Are you open to love, dear ones, or are you fighting against its desire to reach you? Are you focusing on all that makes you sad, mad, frightened, doubtful, etc.? Do you believe in those who would have you think you are going to die, experience financial ruin, or be part of disaster if you don’t listen to their points of view? Or are you believing in love?
The Divine is Love. You are embodiments of the Divine, never separate from love. You breathe in love. Love makes your heart beat and your cells hum. Love is within every facet of creation – physical and otherwise, always calling you to greater love. When you are focused on feeling better and better, you are allowing love to seep into your awareness. You are like earth allowing the spring rains to soften and flow through it with nourishing waters.
Dear ones, you choose whether you believe in the ideas being fed to you about how your world is spiraling downhill, how people are going mad, and how your earth is going to self-destruct… or whether you believe in love. We see a world, growing and expanding into greater love, even if it is going through a bit of the “teenage” phases of self-awareness. We see a world whose population is increasingly conscious of their connection with their Mother Earth and young souls coming in with a mission and inspiration to clean her up and live in harmony with her. Your problems today inspire solutions tomorrow. Generations who felt they could not change are being replaced by generations who will not settle without change. You are evolving, moving forward, not backward, into greater love.
So, what does this mean for your daily lives? Believe in love. Look for it everywhere. Feel the love in your coffee or tea, your blankets, the sunrise, the trees, the birds that sing to you, and the spouse who may be rushing to get to work because they care about the family. See love in the man who is scowling on the bus because he wants attention in his misery. He is crying for love. Pray for him. See love in the boss who is shorttempered because they care so much about doing good work, the helping hands of a clerk carrying a bag to the car for someone in need, the smile of a stranger, the person who lets you in while you are in traffic, and the one that doesn’t who is attempting, albeit awkwardly to love themselves and tend to their own schedule.
Love, whether buried deep beneath bad behaviors or easily visible, is there, dear ones. Can you make it a little game in your hearts, “Look for the love?” If you do, you will begin to discern it everywhere – where it is easily visible and where it is not. Those who behave badly will feel so much less threatening and personal. You’ll see them as souls crying for love. When you are connected to love, you’ll be guided and impulsed in ways that help you avoid the consequences of others’ bad behaviors.
You’ll feel better. Your life will flow. Good will come to you by surprise, all because you chose to embrace what you know deep down. “I am a spirit, having a human experience. I am sourced from love. I live in love whether I see it or not. I am love having an experience of it or not, whether I feel it or not, and so is everyone else.”
Dear ones, love is rushing to your planet now in mighty streams. You have prayed for it, called for it, and directed it with your hopes and dreams for the better, increasingly so over the past few years. Open to it. Let it flow through your hearts with this simple game: Look for the love.
You are not only gifting the world with this game but opening up to all the love you desire in all the ways you desire to experience it!
God Bless You! We love you so very much. – The Angels
