I told you in a former blog about my friend, who found that, “We all love each other already.” This saying had become a touchstone always for my friend and helped in working with everyone, whatever the fault, the addiction, the sorrow or the illness.I do not think that way, even thought I would like to, consistently and always….That we all love each other already.
On my street are the signs “Hate has no home here” and “No matter where you are from, we’re glad you’re our neighbor”. I feel like I think along these lines but there is an opposite, which runs as follows: Love has a home here and everyone is welcome here. We all love each other already.
I have a stone from a holy site in Ireland, which is a touchstone for me. I could feel where it was smoothed and where it was carved; yet it was thrown away. The stone is connected to love for me. Holy men, who wrote, worked, carved, prayed and meditated, once inhabited the site and worked on this stone, centuries ago. Their writings tell of how earnest they were about being in contact with their God. They lived a dedicated life.
I have a wonderful picture, which was painted up in a matter of minutes by my daughter Miriam, when she was around eight. I repainted, her now faded picture, trying to be faithful to how she drew and wrote the whole thing. I think there is a truth in it that only a child can see.
Love is selfish when we want it just for us, drawn inward and it is selfless when it is sent out for others. It is the essence of prayer to send out light and healing for others. The vessel of the heart chakra itself has to be filled from above with the flow of selfless love. It is the concentration and consecration of the attention into the spirit that causes the flow of love in the right direction. In the way of healing and love, our thoughts, our prayers light up our heart chakra and the light depicted by the drawing of the candle, pulls us into the feeling of love, organically available in the heart.
In the Our Father, the heart chakra says “But deliver me from all evil ” and that includes inner and outer evil. Our inner evil comes from this heart chakra also, reversed by our thoughts, for hatred, revenge, dark feelings. Our Pituitary gland is so sensitive to our many wishes that it gives the hormones we need to go with the thoughts, for example, adrenaline for fighting etc. It works in the subtle ways of put down, taking the heart our of relationship, causing the sensor holding our prayers to be broken and an empty feeling.
May the golden candle that you are, be lighted from within and may a golden ring crown your head imprinted with the words “We all love each other already.”
If you need some help getting over the wall to this place of wondrous love, come see me with your dreams and we will see how you can get on with this effort to find your true heart and its gifts for you. Love from Rose Longworth LPC.
