Do you have this belief? “I can only love others as much as I love myself.”
At first, you may think that – of course – that would be true in spiritual thinking. But it goes so much deeper.
We are coming to remember that we are all part of the same energy of life. We are all part of – and we are – the Divine Energy of Creation. That would mean that you are part of me and I am part of you, and you are part of all life and I am part of all life, and all of us together are part of – and are – the Divine Energy of Creation.
That’s all amazing and wonderful. Yet, if I can only love others as much as I love myself, unless I love myself completely and totally and without any reservations or limits and I am aware of that consciously, I am limiting my ability to love God – the Divine Energy of Creation in the here and now. And, I am limiting my ability to love you. That would mean there can be no beliefs about unworthiness or not being deserving or any limits of any kind about what you think about you as the Divine Energy of Creation and you accepting and BEing love. Because if there are any such beliefs – BAM! – you run up against an impenetrable wall of separation.
That wall says that you are separate – at least on some level – from all others. That wall says that to the degree that you understand that you are love and that you love yourself, that is all you have to offer others. However, the more expanded truth is that you already love yourself unconditionally, you already love all others unconditionally, and you love the collective Divine Energy of Creation unconditionally. All of us know this at our core soul level. That core soul level is still part of you and still flows to you in 3D. Your beliefs control the valve of flow of that joyous loving energy.
So, as we come to believe/remember that we are all One, any beliefs about our individual unworthiness to be loved and to love will be in conflict with a basic premise of our BEing -–we ARE love and, as such, there is no such thing as being unworthy of love or of having limits to love or that there is any separation between our individual expression of the Divine and the individual expressions of any other life. It is all the same energy – love – just being experienced differently at any given “time”. We are Source experiencing ourselves as Source. We are Source experiencing everything at once, yet feeling as if it is separate time and separate experience. It is but it isn’t. Fascinating, right?
Any time we experience a conflict of beliefs, our “physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual guidance system” kicks into high gear to alert us. Most people experience this as seemingly negative things showing up and/or as physical distress. The conflict here would be “I am infinite love yet I only have x amount of love to share with you.” That is not possible. So, as we become more and more aware of our own place within and as the Divine, we tend to become more and more confused. This sets up doubt which then begins to bring up where we don’t see ourselves as worthy of love.
In our collective experience, we have come to associate our deeds and the acceptance of our deeds by others as the benchmark of what we deserve in the way of love. We have allowed ourselves to see love as coming from others in relation to what they believe about us, rather than knowing our innate essence as love and knowing the love of self is the opening to the knowledge of ourselves as love. So, collectively, we began to judge ourselves related to our worthiness of love, based on our perception of what others think of our worthiness.
It is time to step out of that pattern and that level of experiencing life and into a more humane way of seeing love. And… the more expanded truth of love. The level of love you believe about yourself is, in the most expanded truth, the level of love you have to share – and it is all-encompassing, infinite, expansive and expanding, unconditional in every way and sense, and beyond comprehension in what it brings and what it is. That is you. That is me. That is all life everywhere. That is the Divine Energy of Creation as itself – love. No limits. No boundaries. No regrets. No judgments. Nothing but bliss and joy and peace and like vibrations. That is what you have to offer. How about THAT!!!
If you’re not feeling it – yet – work on those worthiness beliefs first. Look at where you allow others to define you and what you deserve, and why you allow that. Look at where you allow others to tell you what you can and cannot do, what you can and cannot have, what you can and cannot be, and why you allow that. Then continue to open the valve of the flow of your soul energy into the here and now along with all the soul understandings. Then expand even more into the remembrance and allowance of the Divine Energy of Creation – the energy of all life combined – for there you will know the entirety of who and what you are. There is no such thing as being worthy or not. There is no such thing as deserving or not. You ARE. I AM.
And so it is if you allow it to be for you now…
