How do we create more freedom in our lives?
Short answer: Let go of the blame.
Slightly longer answer: If we are to stop blaming others, we must first turn the mirror to reflect upon the judgement within. Similar to being able to more fully love others, the capacity to overcome blaming others is to first release the sentiment inside of our own hearts.
“That was then. This is now.”
This is a mantra for letting go of what has happened in the past: Let go of all of it. Who we’ve been. What we’ve done. All we’ve lived. They are stories. Pieces written by experience. Colored in by consciousness and perception. Nothing more. None of it defines who we are right this second. It can be vibrant and is the fine detail of the fabric of who we are as individual characters. But there is so much more. There can be so much more.
We do not have to be limited by the perception of who we once were.
The beauty of being able to release the blame is that in that new open space, we open to being the source of infinite possibility.
Did you hear that?
By letting our past go, this becomes an option: Now. This moment. This second. This instant. Release into the Freedom.
Release into the Freedom.
“Love is not a thought, it is an action. And each loving action that we take infuses us with more energy for loving action in the future.” – Rolf Gates, Meditation from the Mat
As we move forward into this space/freedom in our lives, may this be a reminder: The more love we give, the more love we generate and then the more love we are able to receive. It is such a beautiful cycle.
It is a never-ending well, that spring of love. Infusing our lives with giving love is a gift to others and to ourselves. Embrace this gift. Offer this love as a gift to those around you.
Love is action.
Not thought. Not even intention.
Act. Be. Let every action somehow be infused with love because it is our essence.
