Mend Your Heart

God said:

You are meant to love. It is to you I am speaking. I created you to love. Enjoy the mind set of love. The intent to love serves.

How can it be that one of the biggest blocks you have on Earth is to feel love and to give it? You find so many reasons to not love. Not loving your fellow man seems a whole lot easier than loving. What are these impossible obstacles to repress full love from your heart that you build up and so keep your Love in reserve? Must you? What can be so urgent about not loving? How about setting unlovingness aside and never become acquainted with it again. What do you possibly need unlovingness for? It’s a poor excuse.

It may be you look for reasons not to love. One of these reasons may well be that your heart has been hurt. You know, dear ones, when someone offends you, all the more reason for you to open your heart. Open your eyes, and open your heart.

When you feel offended, you are the holder of offense. In the long run, offense is not a good reason to forgo love to and from your heart. Think of it, you have a heart. Keep it open.

Sometimes an offense may be that you simply can’t tolerate someone. This can be considered your offense. You can’t stand the sound of someone’s voice. The offense is the sound of his voice, or it is that he talks too much, and you don’t want to listen, or you find the person glum, and you don’t want to catch it.

You can reflect love with someone while you are free. You don’t have to sit and subject yourself to someone eternally. Don’t mistake this view of yours for love. No one wants to be tolerated by you or anyone. Why would anyone? Your foot-tapping tolerating isn’t good enough at all. Tolerating is its own kind of impatience. For someone to sense that he is being tolerated is intolerable.

When I speak of love issuing from your heart, I am not speaking about the fervor of Great Love. I am simply talking about a certain settled-ness in your heart. Your heart doesn’t have to overflow with love, not at all. I ask that you give your heart the freedom to make even a little room for someone else, someone whom you perceive as else. No matter how different the two of you may be, dear one, you are not wholly opposite. Let’s face it: From the world view, you are not perfect either.

Perhaps the love from your heart that you can best offer is peace. Peace is good. A silent thought of “Peace be with you” is excellent. A thought of peace opens passageways. Whatever opens passageways is love. When you think “Peace be with you” you let in some unbounded love. Peace is a great offering of love. It will do. And as you direct your thought of Peace to another soul, you will also hear your thoughts, and you will feel a greater sense of peace within you surge. Hallelujah!

When you bless another to peace, you are twice-blessed. You yourself become a blessing.

When someone appears to have not understood you and supported you, and, therefore, let you down, why are you bruised? Must you be bruised? Must you have to recover from it as an assault? It is a nothing thing really. Your ego made a mountain out of a molehill. Everyone favors the way he thinks and not what someone else thinks. No one is obligated to see the world as you do. Why are you offended? This sounds like your offense, beloveds. Is it too much to ask that you stay on an even keel?

Mend your heart, the heart that you consider yours to withhold.

Thank you Christine....

for your beautiful comments. So many apparently pointless years where...riddled with fear and anxiety...I refused to open my true eyes...and refused to open my appeared to be way too painful to do so....And wake up every morning....filled with delight and joy and so much just so beautiful.....So to hear your an echo of my words is wonderful and to know another being is daring to live differently from the past....truly living in the light and love of God....How refreshing...and how real is that! Much love...Jim(i)

It is with great Gratitude Jim that I drink in your compliment.

Thank you. The Innocence that Life "IS" got transfixed and conditioned very early in humanity and I am aware now how quickly the Innocence is waking up to the power of Vulnerability. How empowering to just relax and breathe consciously sitting in the best seat in the house and let go and laugh and laugh some more at my funny, funny show. I am grateful for this family of Unity Consciousness. In Oneness We Are Unstoppable.
In Oneness I AM always and in all ways Receiving Unconditional Self Love. In Unconditional Self Love, I Feel Safe. Sending Infinite Love and Blessings to everyOne at and in Heaven Letters. Hugs of comfort too.

Hi Christine and everyone...

Hi Christine...When I read something....especially on this site....subtle energies become evident...When you wrote: "Innocence is waking up to the power of Vulnerability"....I really deeply felt the truth of that...and the "Power" of Vulnerability...but not in the normal meaning of power at all!...."Truth" may be a better word....And what irony....for most of my life....up until about 10-15 years ago....I felt much vulnerability and sensitivity and considered it a curse....and now....why now..."Vulnerability" (in of course this spiritual context)....why yes this "Vulnerability" is an astounding And."sitting in the best seat of the house"....that made me laugh!...cause I was convinced I had the worst seat....or maybe out in an alley somewhere. (I've had periods of homelessness....And actually some of those were the better seats...than the conventional ones...ha ha.)...I could go on...but maybe not for now...Thank you so much for your words...for they have stimulated much within me....And just to add another bit....It seems more and more...that the view from this current "seat" a remarkable one....with green grass at my feet....not just in the neighbor's yard or the lovely verdant dichondra on the grounds of some mythic ashram in never-never land....(spent much time coveting green grass elsewhere!) So....really the best seats are all seats .....when the object pales to the prime significance of the subject....but of couse....objects are lovely and worthy of love too......Im really stretching with words here!!! ha ha Much much Love...Jim(i)

I Love You Jim.

tee, he, ho, ho, let us laugh at our funny show...many years ago I discovered Laughter Yoga and I knew I was home. Thank you too, for your willingness to know the strength of vulnerability. hugs of comfort and joy :-) Christine

I love you too Christine...

Yes...the gift of you for your LOVE!!!!!
