We all possess important qualities within us. Some people know what their qualities are, and can access them at any time. For others, they have not discovered what they are. We all have the capabilities within us to succeed. Why is it that some people succeed while others don’t? What makes us so different? What is lacking? Here are some tips to help you become the person who can move mountains by using the tools that you already have. Again, this is an 8 part series.
Love: Every person has their own definition of love and each displays it differently. As we grow up we learn how to love from the people around us. We imitate what we see, and this is what we base our idea of love on. It is when we mature that we realize if what we learned was love or not.
You have to love yourself before you can truly love someone else. It is from this love that love extends to all. This is the basis of life, the beginning of all things. Just as there are so many types of love, there are just as many ways to show it.
When you love deep down in your soul it knows of no conditions, it knows of no jealousy, it knows no wrong. When you feel love, you are in a euphoric state. This state is reached in your soul. The feeling of love can move mountains. Some people crave this state of being that when it is gone; they try to re-live it with others; only to find that it is a state that lies within. Love should be felt at all times with all things.
When someone or something passes away, your heart hurts. The loss you feel is immeasurable. Your soul is left vulnerable and you are afraid to love again. The point is, you were so blessed to have had the opportunity to love. You had the opportunity to share and experience things in this life with someone special. Imagine what your life would have been like without that person! Love is to be celebrated! Love never dies, it goes on forever. See all things with the love that you felt and when your soul is ready you will feel it again.
For all that you are, and all that you have yet to become, trust that the love inside you will never grow dim. Let love guide you and inspire you, and lead you to greatness. Love endures all. No matter your age, race, ethnicity, etc., love will always surround you; you just have to be willing to look!
When it comes to love, this is my favorite quote, “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage” by Lao Tzu.
