In this seventh guided meditation, part of The Inner Temple fo the Heart Series, we’ll be focusing on activating the virtue of love.
More than a concept, an emotion or a thought, love is a state of being that is nurturing, protective, uplifting and gracious. Love is what’s left once you’re willing to surrender your anger, fear, pride, or anything else that stands in the way of love. It’s heartfelt sense of being in alignment with and part of the whole.
Love is a way of being in the world that says, “How can I be of help to you? How can I comfort you? How can I loan you money when you’re broke? How can I help you find a job? How can I console you when you’ve suffered a major loss in your life? How can I help you heal?
Love is the glue that holds together all the other 11 virtues of the heart; for appreciation, compassion, forgiveness, humility, understanding, valor, kindness, freedom, truth, harmony and honor are all different expressions of love.
It is through our lovingness that we uplift, heal and light up our world and the world of those around us. Like ripples on the water, every gesture of love we give others ultimately finds it way back to us allowing us to continue to give it freely without expecting anything in return.
I hope you enjoy this next installment of The Inner Temple of the Heart, and that it opens your heart to welcoming greater love, abundance, and joy in your life!
