As far as I’m concerned, every summer can be a summer of love. Love is what we are, and in essence, what all things are. When we tap that place of love within us, that deep wisdom of the heart, that all-knowingness, life flows with so much more grace and ease, miracles occur frequently, gratitude wells up, and we have the feeling of being in the flow.
But, we often need reminders to bring us back to that innate being, knowing, bliss that we are. Friends, helpful practices, teachers, sources of inspiration, helpers on the way can all be profoundly useful in coming back to the love we are. We need these reminders because contemporary life is so often bombarding us with false messages of lack, fear, not enough, worry and woe.
Every moment we have a choice. The more we choose love and the deep knowing within, the more we practice living from our hearts, the stronger those “muscles” get, so that becomes our habitual way of being.
What reminders do you have in your life that help you return again and again to that truth, that essence? What keeps you aligned with what you love, what matters to you? What helps you believe in the beauty of your dreams?
You might want to make a list and post that list somewhere where you see it often. What brings you joy? What connects you to your heart, your truth? Who or what brings you back to love?
Then, how can you be sure to have one or more of those things in this day and every day?
If you’re tempted to say, but I have no time! Ask yourself, what is really more important than this?
Share with me below some of the things that bring you back into connection with your heart, your joy, your essence.
