A beloved Facebook friend recently posted at delightful photograph of a heart-shaped spider web and this caption: Living from your heart is an art. It takes creativity, focus, and time. (Original source unknown) These wise words, and the beautiful photograph, touched my heart and spoke to my spirit.
As I pondered the insight offered, Joshua reminded me that in addition to these ingredients for a heart-based life, living from the heart and letting love show also requires courage. As we awaken it is easier to release the mask of fear we hide behind to reveal our extraordinary love for one another. Yet, in moments of insecurity, it is still a habit to hide behind the mask. There are good reasons that led us to create a heart-shielding mask, and there’s no shame or guilt about owning it or using this tool.
Each of us has the freedom to choose the moments when we lower the shield and allow the mask to melt. In every circumstance we may let love flow through our heart, our eyes, and our smile. Indeed, feelings of love flowing through our being are more powerful than words. The heart center of our body is a lighthouse. Our light has no boundaries for this light is the One that dwells in All That Is. Awakening to our eternal and infinite nature reminds us that we have nothing to fear. Allow that understanding to drip into the pool of our whole consciousness like a droplet of courage.
The global shift out of a fear-based reality into a time of love, peace, abundance, and understanding begins within each of us. We remember that love dissolves fear, and we know in our whole self—we have nothing to fear. We are eternal and infinite now. Imagine what we can transform with a droplet of courage to let love show, and faith the size of a mustard seed.
I love you.
