Free your Love | Love is not something we manufacture or make, Love already IS. | HartHaiku.com

Free your Love | It’s the key

Infinite love already exists in everything that is alive, including you and me. Our love lessons are about removing the obstacles to love. They teach us out how to access, express and live it. That is, if we choose to learn.

Fear, anger, prejudice,… there are a myriad of padlocks with which we hold our love hostage. The experiences we have around love are all opportunities for self-examination, so we can learn to love better.

This can feel difficult in a world that is expressing so much dissension and “un-love”. But each of us is a potential key to healing it. Consider that perhaps the high tension in the world right now is a challenge to each of us. That is, to work on unlocking our own love. And together, we could collectively unleash a world of love that has never been seen before.

Points of View | To understand you, I must look through your lens too to get a wide view. | HartHaiku.com

Points of View | The many

In this duality world, we all have a tendency to become entrenched in our own point of view. We are trained to see life that way. A or B, right or wrong, etc. “Choose one.” Our ability to listen to and consider many points of view could go a long way towards healing humanity’s many conflicts.

Let’s start to consider the many shades of gray, the place of understanding and compromise. One of my fave Rumi quotes is: “Out beyond ideas of wrong doing
and right doing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”
