"Kindness reflects our inherent oneness with each other, while attack drives us still further apart in our awareness.” – K. Wapnick, The Healing Power of Kindness: Releasing Judgment
Just like our animal companions, when we’re at our worst, is when we need kindness, unconditional love & compassion.
But in the moment — when we are feeling drained or impinged upon — we can become reactive.
That’s when we need LOVE the most.
When I say “we need love”, I am referring to bringing love into our awareness, and letting the Voice for Love run the show. – not the fearful ego.
In every moment, We are either extending love or we are calling for love.
Think of extending love as BEING an extension of what you consider LOVE to be. For me, it’s as simple as being kind and compassionate.
Think of “calling for love” as anything other than that. A “Call for Love” can come in a myriad of forms; some of which are quite unruly.
But here’s the kicker: Regardless of either form (calling for love or extending love) the response should be love.
... For everyone seeks for Love as you do.
Regardless of how much we are struggling in the moment, however fearful, frustrated, drained, or strained, we have a choice. We don’t have to allow the ego to take the wheel. We don’t have to become overwhelmed or reactive to anyone or anything.
We Can Choose Love.
Returning to Love is my Soul’s purpose.
Extending Love is my joy.
This is my strength.
This is security.
This is peace.
One of our human and furry family members are what I call my greatest lessons in love. They teach me, through all the ways I become triggered, that regardless of their behavior, my response can be love.
When I choose to respond with love, it changes everything.
As you see him you will see yourself.
As you treat him you will treat yourself.
As you think of him you will think of yourself.
Never forget this,
For in him you will find yourself or lose yourself.
