Our new book, Graceful Intentions for Powerful Change is available now. The theme of the book is manifesting compassion, joy, and authenticity through the power of intention. This post is an example of the intentions in the book. May you find value in reading these suggestions about letting love grow – letting love show.
Joshua was the first teacher to show me unwavering unconditional love. Learning to accept unconditional love was a process for me. In this process, I sought to cultivate an open heart and gentle spirit so I could show unconditional love to others. I don’t claim perfection – not at all, so I continue to practice and grow.
In the process of teaching the Seventh Major Understanding, I have grown to value the power of setting intentions. I want to share affirmations of unconditional love that I embrace and cherish. With a loving heart, I urge you to develop your own intentions toward dwelling in unconditional love.
Intention of Loving Kindness: I am as gentle and kind to myself as I am with others. As I practice loving-kindness within, my ability to give and express love grows. I acknowledge that self-abuse is pointless and without merit. I recognize that feelings of guilt arise from my judgment. My feelings of culpability exist to teach me who I am. I gracefully accept lessons attached to my sense of guilt, and I forgive myself completely. I forgive myself for imagined errors as I remember that all of my experiences are drawn to me for an exquisite purpose. I release feelings of guilt through love and forgiveness. I intend to do my best, and doing my best is all I can do. When I slip, I forgive myself and begin again. As I learn to forgive and love myself, I extend loving kindness to all.
