I give myself permission to love

I give myself permission to love and be loved

Loving others is exercise for my soul. Each time I embrace someone, I burn away the unwanted weight of hatred and bitterness. Love is the most basic of human feelings. We are born to love and be loved.

Not only do I give myself permission to love, but I also require myself to look at others through compassionate eyes. Love is a choice. Love is not an emotion that rules my actions. Love begins in the mind when I make a decision to love. I express it with my actions and eventually it lands in my heart.

Infatuation is a feeling that takes over the body but disappears after time. Love is different. The seeds of love take time to grow. Once they take root, it is impossible to remove them.

I love with passion. I love unconditionally. I love faithfully.

I accept the love of others. I never question whether others truly love me because I fill my mind with positive thoughts. When others tell me that they love me, I believe them. When others extend their love to me, I grab it.

I lay down my guard around others. When I allow myself to be vulnerable around others, they see a side of me that is easy to love. I love because there is much more to gain from loving relationships than from relationships of envy and hate.

By focusing on their positive traits, I can convince myself to love even the most difficult people. I can love those whom I have difficulty accepting. The more I love them, the easier they are to accept.

When I have a hard time loving someone, I pray for them. I have found that it is hard to deny loving someone when you care enough to pray for them.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1.    How do I respond to the love of others?
2.    Do I expect love to just pop into my heart or do I cultivate it?
3.    Who can I pray for today?

Every time I see an opportunity to help others, I do so joyfully

I am willing to help anyone I meet who is in need, and I do so joyfully. I consider myself fortunate to have the means to help others.

I believe that small gestures really do matter. A cathedral would be but a foundation without the blocks that give it shape. A symphony would be flat noise without the notes that compose it.

Likewise, when I act kindly or generously, I help give shape to the goodness in the world. When I assist a neighbor who's moving furniture or when I give a cup of coffee to the homeless man on the corner, I am fully aware that I am not changing the world with my actions. And yet, I know that I am contributing to making the world a better place. After all, each gesture can have a significant impact.

I believe that giving to others not only helps the recipient, but me as well. What I send out comes back to me, ten-fold, sometimes in kind but often in a form that is different but equally valuable.

When I give generously and without expectation of fanfare, I expand my spirit and open myself up to receive much good in return.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. Do I appreciate or resent those who need my help?
2. In what ways have I been physically, emotionally, or spiritually rewarded by helping others?
3. What opportunities to help others have I passed up because I felt the gesture was too small to matter?
