Inner Power is a Limitless Force

Who you are, is beyond gender and name, it is the energy that connects everything and exists in everything. It's the part of you that can never die.  You are always connected to it and can never be separated from it. You can only believe that you are separated from it through the mind and ego. We just need to become conscious of this connection to start benefiting from it in our daily lives.

We connect to the world, through the physical body and our thoughts. The body is like a cup holding this essence. There are many words that have been given to describe this essence such as love, God, Buddha Nature, chi, source, energy, light, soul or spirit. I don’t care what you prefer to call it, I will refer to it as energy or source. When you connect to this part of yourself, you will know a love that knows no limit, a joy that is independent of circumstance, an ability to be present in the now. It is like plugging into the centre of the earth for heat, there is a limitless supply of it, once you know how to tap into it.

Think of the great adventurers of the world and all the incredible things they do, like running a naked and barefoot marathon in the North Pole. These people perform feats that would normally kill an ordinary human being.  They are tapping into this powerful part of themselves that has limitless potential, energy and knowledge. We all have access to this energy, and we have tapped in and out of it many times in our own life, without consciously choosing to do so. At the moments when you felt invincible, powerful, overjoyed or bubbling with creativity or found yourself in the zone, your were connecting to that greater part of yourself. Meditation is the conscious choice to plug-in to that energy into that source.

In the pursuit of Love

In our pursuit of Love there are some fundamental things to consider that can greatly help us on a daily basis. Unconditional love starts with loving the man/woman in the mirror, regardless of what's going on around you right now, how you look or how you feel about yourself or your life.

Love is something which springs forth from inside of us rather than something that is given to us by those around us. Others can give us their respect and kindness, but love is something shared rather than given. Here is where many suffer from love because they have over looked this enlightening interpretation of how love works.

We seek love from the outside when it is in fact a hidden gem waiting to be discovered within us. It is the very essence of who we are as humans. The thing that drives us to do wonderful things for each other and the world. I shudder when I see love being used to escape being accountable for the choices we are making.

Like staying in distructive relationships in the name of love or performing acts of horror in the name of love for our countries or what ever else we are passionate about. Love is a sacred river from which when we drink we are refreshed, revived and inspired and enlightened. When we dare to connect to the source of that river which is within us, it flows out into the world around us bringing life to the seeds we plant in other peoples hearts.

Love and happiness are intrinsically contented, so if we seek one we must also pursue knowledge and experience of the other. Unconditional love feels like no other because it goes beyond the limits that we assume love has. Love is as limited or expansive as we choose it to be, because ultimately what we believe about anything is what will ultimately prevail.

Our beliefs cultivate our way of living and defining what is possible and what is not. I have come to believe through my personal experience with love, that there is absolutely no down side to or limit to Love. It will in fact empower you immensely when you choose to fully surrender yourself to it, become it and share it with fearless regard with out needing a reason or provocation to do so! Fear to love too much arises only when we believe it is something we recieve from others and can therefore be lost, rather than something shared with others from that fearless place within.

From this place love can never be lost or taken away from you, also it is not so much something you give away, but rather something you become, something you are and something you embody and radiate through the conscious choice to do so!
