With everything that is happening in the world, our part is to remain steadfast in our understanding that with the Universe/God/Spirit/Source/Higher Power, whatever you want to call it, we are all united at a soul level. We are all ONE. When we get caught up in watching the world around us that knows only separation from our Divine Source, we can look at all of it in a new way. In the face of all that is happening, we can see this as an opportunity to go forth as God’s loving presence in this world. So how do we do this?

Look at it as an opportunity to be more loving right where you are starting with yourself.  Love yourself just the way you are with all your ups and downs, anger and unforgiveness. Look inside and say, “I love every part of myself even those parts that are angry and judgmental because I know that is not the Truth of my being. The Truth is I am an amazing being of Light here at this time to spread love near and far.” That thought transforms your own energy field and that goes out to the world. 

When you are feeling like you are not doing what you think you “should” be doing, unloving, unhappy, depressed, or whatever else is coming up for you, remember there is a purpose for feeling that way. It is coming up for you to feel so you can choose to be with that part of you and love it all. Look at all of life as an opportunity to embrace yourself. Life is an ongoing progression of experiences, and you get to experience yourself amid all that is going on around you. How about unconditionally loving yourself and remembering you are the Light of the world just the way you are. 

Ask yourself, How can I love myself more by taking care of this body? How can I love the planet more by doing nothing to harm her? How can I love my neighbors more by allowing them the privilege of whatever their thoughts and beliefs are?” 

Love one another is at the heart of all religions and loving yourself is at the center of that. But you can find yourself adding rules and conditions that color everything such as, “I will love you if you believe this way or if you do this.” In God/Spirit/Divine Presence/Creator there is none of that. No matter what is going on in your life and the world, there is only the invitation to love one another and yourself. 

Healing of all of this begins in your own beautiful, amazing heart. Allow the love that God created you from to be unaltered?  You really can choose to stay in a place of love by loving all parts of yourself and the world.

Be the love and peace you want to see in the world.
