Inside each of you is a very great love longing to rise to the surface. This love can be expressed in so many different ways! It can be expressed in your “yes” and in your “no.” It can be expressed in your joy and in your gratitude. It lies beneath your sorrow, your fear, and even your upsets, for in truth, this love is what you are made of, and it is constantly trying to reveal itself in your life
You express this love most purely when you are honest with yourself and the world around you. There is a notion in humanity that love is only expressed in a “positive” form – by saying “yes’ to every request, by making everyone comfortable, or by appearing cheery no matter what the circumstances. These expressions are beautiful when genuine.
Nonetheless, there are times when “no” is an expression of love. There are times when love dictates that you must allow someone else their discomfort in order to be true to your own heart. There are even times when you cannot truly, authentically find a positive outlook and, in these spaces, allowing yourself your sadness, fear, anger, and envy with complete self-acceptance, may be the highest expression of love you can find in that moment.
So many of you have been trained to believe that pleasing people is an act of love. We would agree when your heart is genuinely inclined to do so. However, it is not loving to assist another if you are not honestly drawn to do so. If a friend calls and says, “Can you help me today,” and you have other plans, drop into your heart. “Heart, Divine Love, what is it you want for me today?” Trust the answer. Perhaps you will genuinely want to cancel your plans and help your friend. Perhaps you will not. Truth is loving Being honest with yourself and others is loving. If you serve the truth within your own hearts, dear ones, then whether or not you please everyone else’s ego, you will serve their soul.
Remain true to the presence of light within. Serve the guidance in your heart in each moment, rather than living by the dictates with which you have been trained. Allow your “yes”es to be those that truly come from the heart. When you are not inclined to do something, say “no” with love. Trust. Trust that the creator is guiding each and every one of you. For every soul in need, there will be a soul genuinely guided and desiring to give. For every soul who longs to give, there will be one willing to receive.
You are all expressions of the one Love, dancing in Love, with other expressions of Love. Be honest with yourselves dear ones and your lives will be a beautiful dance of Love
