Why can’t we Love?

Unfortunately, we are not able to express LOVE just yet. Not the way a true LOVE should be manifested anyway.  The word LOVE became clichéd and lost its meaning over time. 

We can only give what we have. It is simple. We just need to go back to the basics. LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOUR AS YOU LOVE YOURSELF.

In order to LOVE yourself, you need to know yourself. You cannot say that you “LOVE” driving or cooking If you have never done it before. So how can we LOVE our neighbor If we are not able to LOVE ourselves? How can we distribute LOVE If we don’t have it?

LOVE involves freedom, inner power, and acceptance:

  • To accept yourself exactly the way you are;
  • Using your Inner power (we all have it) to improve your being;
  • Embracing freedom – let it go…

Start examining yourself, become friends with yourself, pay attention to your feelings, emotions, the way you react in different circumstances. Get to know your real self. Don’t be scared, it might hurt, it might be very difficult, but it is all part of the processes. Explore the good bit and also, the “not so good” bit in you. And don’t worry about the “bad” part. We are all here to evolve, but to give a step forward we must obtain self-knowledge.

Gandhi already said, “Be the change you want to see in the world”

LOVE can cure. Be sure to cure yourself first to start healing others later.  LOVE is the answer, LOVE is the path, LOVE is freedom, LOVE is the answer for everything. We must start from within.

Let’s embrace LOVE and work towards its real meaning, to be able to experience and distribute LOVE abundantly. And perhaps we can experience the real LOVE sooner than later… With Love, always!

What Have You Learnt So Far?

In most cases, we start the learning journey in the early stage of life up until college and maybe a little bit further. We are encouraged by our family to follow this learning path with the intention of becoming cleverer, cultured and also to guarantee a better and brighter future – which could give us the chances to get a good job, pursue a career, obtain a reasonable salary and to enjoy a comfortable life.

All the above is not only your right as a human being but is also necessary to help you to evolve while incarnated. Unfortunately, not everybody can achieve this in life. As I have mentioned in the previous post… we get what we need and not always it means what we want, but it is all part of a learning process.

I understand that when we are young, we have no clear objectives or no objectives at all. They are commonly set by our parents, family or tutors. However, there is a point in life when we are able to make our own choices and we are fully aware of them – even when we don’t make any – we are choosing!

Cutting a long story short I want to invite you to meditate about why we only dedicate ourselves to study to reach manly materials objectives in life?  We usually establish a “timeline” and work our existence around it, but there is no such thing in eternity. We must think beyond…

Have you ever thought about “studying” yourself? I know… it does sound bizarre, but how can we make any improvement in life If we don’t know who we are?

I would say this is the most challenge task in life, but if you are here to evolve… you must start from within. It will take time – perhaps a few incarnations… but you will get there eventually.

When you know yourself, you can manage, your thoughts, your emotions, and your actions. Believe me or not – also your choice 😊 – this will contribute to a better world. Your attitudes and your opinions about yourself and about others will change dramatically, and you will become free and perhaps happier – this would also contribute to a significant impact on human evolution.

After all, “We Shall Love Our Neighbour as Ourselves” but we cannot give away something that we don’t possess.

You must learn about your own self. You must set objectives that will impact your existence, not only your current life – the sky is the limit.

And guess what? The best time to start is right here, right now!

What do you know about prayer?

What do you know about prayer?

According to the dictionary, prayer is a noun and it means “a solemn request for help or expression of thanks addressed to God or another deity”.

Asking for help or thanking a divinity for something. Nothing new so far right?… but “Have you ever thought or paid attention to how you ask for help during your prayers?”

I believe “Our Father” is the first prayer that most of us learn as a child, following the Holy Mother. Maybe you have learned that closing your eyes and repeating these words would do the job and /or If you repeat these prayers as many times as you can, you would get help quicker?

In most of the cases, we pray and ask to the superior spirits to help us to get rid of something or someone that is not pleasant… that annoying work colleague or that demanding boss or to be able to afford your own place as you no longer can handle living with your flatmate or family or you could ask for material things such as a luxury car, a better house, more money, more trips…

And please don’t get me wrong! We all have the free will to do whatever we want and to ask for whatever we wish, but perhaps you have to remind yourself about a few things before you say a prayer next time:

We Are Here to Evolve

No, you are not on holidays – I am sorry to disappoint you :/

The only way to evolve is to live and experience situations that would bring you the opportunity to practice things like humbleness, tolerance, detachment, selfishness, hate, acceptance, and the list goes on and on and on.

Unfortunately, there is no such thing like a Tolerance Shop, where you can buy a bag of tolerance for the week to use with your boss or your flatmate or your family. The relationship you have with them will definitely shape your soul.

So, asking for help to “eliminate” these people from your life does not make sense because you need them! You need then more than you think. If they serve as an instrument to improve your essence, either you like or not, you could possibly ask for a different help? Perhaps you can ask for help to be stronger, to have the courage and to be persistent to overcome these “tests”? 

Everything Happens for a Reason

The lesson will come. If you choose to follow path A or path B, it will come. Again, we are here to become a better person.  First of all, to yourself and then to others. Just embrace the opportunity and make the most of it.

We Only Get What We Need

And sometimes that is not what we want. This is purest proof of love than you could ever receive from the Superior Intelligence (whatever name you feel comfortable to use). Getting what you need, it will make you stronger, more evolved and consequently happier (even though that is not what it seems to be at the beginning).

Believe in You/ Be Responsible

Just be yourself. Just pray with your heart, with your own words and just be as simple and sincere as you can be. You are responsible for everything that happens to you, with no exception. Responsibility is not the same as guilt. While guilt determines who is the guilty one, the responsibility determines who is compromised to make improvements in many aspects of life. 

It does not depend on how many words you use, but how meaningful and sincere you are. The Universe (whatever name you feel more comfortable to use) knows who you are and what you need. Just trust your guts!

You Are Not Perfect

You will definitely make a few mistakes during your journey. That is perfectly fine and there is where I want to get … Next time you say a prayer, maybe you could ask for help to be strong enough to face that situation or that person. 

Do not blame yourself for not being able to handle the challenges and circumstances in the best way all the time. Just pay attention to your feelings and emotions. Take this “let-down opportunities” to observe yourself and try harder next time. Forgive yourself and move one. You did the best that you could have done 😊

When it comes to the second meaning found in the dictionary “Expression of thanks addressed to God or another deity”.

Be Grateful

TO YOURSELF. You are responsible for everything in your life with no exception and you are the most important being in the whole universe. You are unique and that alone should make you feel special and strong.  Just accept yourself the way you are with no resentment. Everything that you need to become a better soul is already inside you. This is the true miracle!
