One Short Sentence That Could Change Your Life If You Used It More Often.
There is only love. It's the only word we speak.
The previous statement came to me a few years ago in a stream of consciousness and in a moment in which my heart suddenly opened to universal love. Other than this, I couldn't hear anything but love. I even tested the flow of energy breaking free from my heart, seeking in my mind those people who had wronged me in my life. It didn't make a dent in my feelings. I loved everyone and everything. When the heart is open, nothing can interrupt the feeling of love.
Whether you know it or not, everything that people asks from you is their desire to be loved, for love is all we want to be, and all we want to receive. It could argued that people treating us unfairly are not looking for love. One could think that they want to be right, bring us down, or they simply want to antagonise us.
The truth is that they are looking for love like anyone else. It's a cry for help and love. They simply don't know how to ask. It is a paradox that can only be understood from their past experiences. Humanity has become accustomed to not express love for one another. Hence, we don't know how to express it or how to receive it. Perhaps the worst part is that we no longer expect it from others. Instead, we expect the worse from others. What we expect, we receive.
There is a moment in childhood in which everyone falls out of love. At this point we begin to distrust others and live in fear unknowingly. The further we separate from the source of love we were born with, the more fear we express. When someone screams at someone else, even if it doesn't appear to be that way, what they're expressing is their fear of not being loved. Screaming back at them causes separation for everyone involved. There's no need to elaborate, as we all have been there.
At the same time, we have forgotten to receive love. There's a certain age in which our parents stop being vocal in their expressions of love, but even when they continue doing so, it is us who reject their offerings until we forget to accept love. We are grown ups now, and grown ups don't love.
The result is a society in which expressions of love are reduced to intimate circles of friends and family and rarely in the open. Fortunately, this tendency is changing. As the world is opening to love, it is possible to see more signs of affection even among strangers. Thee collective consciousness is returning to love; that sacred place where we belong.
How long has it being since you said I love you to someone? Is this a daily occurrence or something that happens from time to time? When was the last time you said I love you to yourself? Even though it might seem a ridiculous statement to say I love you to ourselves, this simple sentence could help boost your energy and self-esteem gradually. You heard it from others before. You told others before. And in this we are all the same. We want to love and be loved.
Perhaps you have not heard the expression for a while. You might be single, or feeling very alone in the world due to personal circumstances. Humanity has become so used to immediate gratification that if something is not happening now, it is not happening at all. This is where we all go wrong.
Everything is energy. It never dies. The energy of one word lingers in time forever. This means that if someone said I love you to you years ago, the energy is still there, even if that person is no longer with you. The energy remains. But as we separate from love, we need constant confirmation, something that proves almost imposible in a world that has not been built to love each other, but to compete against each other.
From the moment of birth until the present moment, everyone has heard more negative words than positive ones. And, I love you is that one expression we rarely hear.
Today and every other day we all have the opportunity to change such negative dynamic. Tell I love you to everyone you can. Begin with friends and family. Use social media. Call others on the phone. You don't have to reach everyone, but you can suggest others to do the same. One 'I love you' from one person only can cause a ripple effect that reaches thousands without you knowing it. Anyone who feels loved is more likely to express love to others.
Keep it light and keep it simple. Some people might not understand the expression or even misinterpret it. Don't judge them. They're separated from love and they need it most.
Go on! What are you waiting for? Go and tell everyone you can 'I love you.' You never know what's going to happen. You could be at the end of the ripple effect. Somewhere, sometime I heard that "what goes around, comes around." Say I love you and keep saying I love you and see how your life changes.
Just one more thing: I LOVE YOU!
