This place is not scary but sometimes feels safe...
...This place is safe and sometimes feels scary.
A couple weeks ago while lounging on my couch with my baby girl I found myself flowing unending amounts of love to her...and then something occurred to me...
What if the Universe is our Mother... and this planet is her womb... and she loves us as much and as completely as I love my beautiful baby girl?
As much as I loved her when she was still in my belly and as much as I love her now?
And as much as I loved my son while he was in my belly and as much as I love him now that he's 11 years old?
As much as I'll always love them no matter what?
These thoughts changed me.
Suddenly the world wasn't a scary place that we needed to overcome. Suddenly it was a place where we are always wrapped in a warm blanket of unending love. There is no proving here. There is no unworthiness here. There is only acceptance, allowance and love.
But like me with my little ones (or you with the people and creatures you love), the Universe's "job" as our Mother is not to do everything for us or to keep us from the experiences of life. Her job, like every Mother, is to wrap us up in an unending blanket of love.
Love isn't scary.
Love isn't something we need to escape from....or distract ourselves from.
But it is something we have to choose to let in and receive.
We don't ever have to receive it; it's our choice. We can cut ourselves off from it and choose to believe the world is scary and only sometimes feels safe...or we can choose to be wrapped in this blanket of unending love and know that the world is safe, but sometimes feels scary.
I choose to let love in.
Will you join me?
Please comment, "I let love in" so we can let love in together.
