that if I had abundance (lots of money) I would have security and happiness. No longer do I think that.
I have had moments where I have felt sublime happiness – a state of being where time literally seemed to stand still and bliss just flowed throughout me; the sense of security was irrelevant.
And abundance had nothing to do with how I was feeling. My joy stemmed from love, either the love upon me or the love I had for myself or others.
So what is love and how does one obtain and maintain it? Love is many things … acceptance, compassion, forgiveness, attention, trust, understanding, surrender, positive energy and so much more. Love is at the core of our being and available to us 24×7 if only we’d recognize our ego’s attempts to distract us from experiencing it. More importantly, love is the divine fabric of the universe. Love is God and God is Love.
Curiously by having love in one’s life, happiness flows freely as does abundance and security. Therefore, create as much love as you can. The more love you give, the more love you receive.
And as the Beatles’ lyric so aptly put it: “and in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make”
