Ah, here I am again talking about love 🙂
But what is love?
I have posted about Love so many times, love for self, love for others, unconditional love etc……
But when i sit down, meditate and go into my heart centre i realise that most of us are under the wrong impression of what love really is!
Oh my!, What am I letting myself in for now!…..I guess I will get lots of replies stating…’Rubbish Post’,……. Love is….etc!
Well, here goes anyway 🙂
To me, Love is everything, Love is with us from the day we are conceived because our mother gives us the love from her body to help carry us through the pregnancy period; until the day that we are born, then we receive the love from our parent/s, our siblings, our families… we receive love from our friends, our colleagues and from our experiences in life.
Love is all around…..So we should be happy, right?
Actually, the next time your sitting with your dog or your cat, take a proper look at the feeling, the sensation and their energy towards you, they are in fact giving you love, unconditional love, especially from the dog. Cat’s.. well, they have their own opinions on life and will give you their love when they are ready, but a dog’s love is unconditional and always!….Then take a long look at your life, where is your love? how do you show your love? do you love yourself?…I don’t mean how you look in a mirror, but deep down, Do you love who you are?, What you stand for and where you are going with your life?
I often ask my friends:-
What is important to your life,
What do you feel is missing from your life?,
What are you seeking, looking for in your life?
And the answers are:
But love comes, and it goes…We think and believe that love is just a relationship thing between two people, a partnership, a marriage etc,…and then, when that love goes away, we are left in a mess, often deep down in depression, bringing anxiety, unhappiness and sadness to our life ……
So! How many of us actually love ourselves?…..
Actually not that many of us because most of us don’t love the way we look, we are not happy with our weight, body shape, we are either too tall or too short, too much hair or (in my case lack of hair) 🙂 We don’t love our jobs, we don’t love our daily lives, we don’t love our homes and, on and on the lack of love for ourselves goes on causing us to be unhappy with who we are……
Well! , let me tell you something.
If you don’t love yourself then how do you expect to attract love into your life?
So, pick yourself up, start a new page and take another look at yourself…..What’s not to love!……..Right?
You are a Divine being, you are a wonderful creation, you are love itself!…And the sooner you realise this and make this your daily mantra then the sooner you can start enjoying your life, attracting more love into your daily life then bringing about happiness and then achieving all the success you truly want in your life.
So, if you are going to say ‘Rubbish Post’ then fine, but if for one second you feel you are not 100% happy with the love in your life and the love for yourself; then please take a long look at yourself, see who you really are, connect with your Divine Self, connect with your heart and see the love, then share the love and …Love….Will come right back at ya 🙂
Go on, do yourself a favour for once…ACT!
Namaste with Love

Excellent work Sir.
Thank you Ted 🙂
Beautiful. A sometimes hard task to master, loving oneself. But a definite prerequisite to enjoying full love. 🙂 Peace.
Indeed it is my friend 🙂
A lovely post. Every word true! The day I finally (mostly) accepted myself as I am, my life changed. The depression I suffered from all my life finally lifted and has not returned. I mourned the wasted years spent in darkness. Then I reached a point where I stopped thinking about what I missed, or didn’t do or say or try, and decided to just be who I am. At 54 I am the happiest I can ever remember being.
Wow!….Thank you for sharing my friend, thank you for being ‘You’, celebrate who you are each and everyday 🙂 Blessings of love, Mark
Brilliantly said Mark. When I asked spirit to allow me to become a healer, spirit asked me to look within, and I said ‘hang on, I want to help others’, and spirit said…’until I look within, understand and heal myself, how can I heal another’.
Sat me on my backside at first, but then I realised its true, until we look within and heal from there first, how can we understand another and their journey when we don’t understand our own.
Great post and so spot on. Mark
To Mark L: So true, as Spirit says you cannot heal until you are healed. As has been said ‘Healer heal thyself’ it should be added, ‘FIRST’ Love, David
Indeed it should my friend 🙂
Thank you Mark, thank you 🙂
I relate to it very deeply Mark, thank you 🙂
