“Love isn’t just something we feel for others, it’s who we are. Though we usually think of love as a stream of emotion flowing between two people, love is more like an ocean that’s inside and all around us.
Instead of walking around with a little cup, begging for a few drops of love from others, recognize that you’re the huge ocean of love. Let go of the feeling, There’s a limit to love and I have to get mine. When you do this, you relax, and your energy expands. Rather than looking at every interaction as a potential source of love—something to fill you up and make you feel good—come to every interaction radiating love. Then you go from being a “love beggar,” to being a “love philanthropist.” ~ Marci Shimoff
Recognizing that we already ARE love completely changes the way we experience life. The world starts to look a whole lot friendlier when we aren’t starting from lack. Drop the limiting stories in your head and radiate love to the world without condition. When you swim around in what you already have you can’t help but feel appreciative and that feeling sends out a powerful signal to the rest of the world. Come on in, the water’s fine! Maybe one day we’ll all learn to swim again. In the meantime, enjoy your banana.
