Release—and RECEIVE!

Love never dies.  It is constant. It is all around us. It is what we are made of. It is consciousness, itself. It is in the very air we breathe.

Change is also constant. Every moment is new. To receive each new moment, one must let go of the last one. Staying present, then, is actually not staying anywhere. It is a constant process of change–of releasing the old, and taking in the new.

If one takes this realization to heart, it will activate a profound paradigm shift of awareness that literally changes everything. Letting go of “the past” will no longer have anything to do with the word “loss.”  What has passed is already “in the past,” and whether we let go or not, that is where it is, and where it will stay.

Letting go actually means a willingness to stay in Love. It means staying in the flow of NOW as it continually expresses Love anew in every moment, and saying, “More, please!” All we have to do is be willing to receive that much love without putting a lid on it. Without saying, “Enough! I don’t deserve this much love!  I’m going to cling to the past and grieve for my losses, instead.”

Ah, how we grieve! We grieve for lost loved ones, and lost opportunities. We grieve for lovers who “broke our hearts” by moving on. We grieve because we blame ourselves for these perceived losses, and so feel unworthy of receiving anymore Love. Or, because we blame others for not loving us enough, and so become afraid to open up to Love again. Because…just maybe… we are not lovable enough…

Why do we do this? Because we attach feeling Love to the people who love us.  We forget that people are not the source of Love. Instead, they (we!) are  perfectly imperfect, human conduits for the Love that is Source, Itself–and which IS perfect, for it is without filters. And so, we grieve the loss of Love in our lives when relationships end, as if Love, Itself, had ended! We  choose to grieve, to “hold onto the past,” rather than open ourselves to receive Love anew.

Well, I say, “Enough!” Enough of all that grieving!  Holding on to what is no longer in the NOW only prevents us from receiving what IS there for us– if we open to it.  Change is constant only becaause Love is both constant and infinitely creative.

There is no “loss.” There is only “more.”  There is no scarcity of lovers.  There is no scarcity of abundance. Family is waiting in NEW forms, in NEW ways that have never been experienced before on our planet. There is NO SCARCITY  OF LOVE! It flows in abundance, and all we need do is let go and receive.

But we know this already!  We know it so well that we  don’t even have to think about it–because if this was news to us, our physical bodies would not even be alive. If we hadn’t been born knowing  that we have to let go in order receive, we would not breathe.

With every breath, we let go of the old in order to receive the new. We do it constantly, and we do it confidently. With every new NOW, we breathe in. We don’t hold our breath in order to avoid the loss of letting it go. We simply release it, and open our lungs to receive the next one. We  KNOW that there is an endless supply of air. And air is simply one of the many expressions of the Love we are surronded by, and live in, all the time.

Think about it for a moment– just to give your brain a treat.  Just to reassure the poor, overworked thing that it doesn’t have to be on top of absolutely everything every moment in order to  make sure you “survive.” After all, we’ve put so much “weight” on the brain with our beliefs in its almighty prowess that it gets burnt out trying to be in charge of everything. Just listen to its incessant chatter, going over and over its checklists of doubts, and its endless fears that it will make a mistake, all day long. Have a little compassion for it!

The brain does not have to bear such a burden of responsibility, you know. It has been “hard-wired” all along into a vast, multidimensional, support system of intelligence within you. This interconnected web of intelligence can do many things together that the brain cannot do alone.  Why not give your brain permission to let go of working all alone, and way beyond its designed scope of practice? Why not finally allow it to receive the support that has been there for it all along? If you remind it often enough, you will receive quite a gift, yourself. The gift of  “peace of mind.”

Tben, gift yourself even more by giving yourself permission to receive all that is there for you! Let go of what is past. Let go of what no longer serves you. Let go of those who are not in your life NOW, and know that you have never lost them–and you never will. They will always be a part of you, and you of them. There is no reason to hold on, then, is there?

Instead, be grateful for them, let go of holding on, and open up to “More, please!” Let the constancy of change present you with every new manifestation and expression of Love that it has to offer. And open wide–very wide— to receive.  Take a deep breath, and say “Yes, thank you!! I know I deserve, or I wouldn’t be alive and breathing. So yes, I”ll have some more, please!”  Then, just keep breathing it all in. Again, and again, and again, and again, and again…

Wuth much love (receive it!)—Judith
