Excerpt from Living with Joy
Chapter 8 Love: Knowing the Wisdom of the Heart
Greetings from Orin!
Most of you have had that experience of deep love in which you were able to set aside your personality, your own wants and desires, to assist another. Love is an energy you can tap into whenever you have a loving thought of anyone. You literally raise your own vibration. There are many high beings, such as myself and those who work at this level, who are focusing love on the planet, amplifying your feelings of love. Any time you express unconditional love, from your deepest being, and any time you receive it, you assist many more people in achieving it also.
Love from the higher realms is absolute compassion and complete detachment. It is seeing the larger picture of people’s lives and focusing on, not what you want from them, but how you can assist them in their unfoldment and growth? Love is focusing on how you may serve them, and in doing so, how you may serve your own growth and higher purpose. Love opens the door to your own growth and aliveness. You may have experienced how being in love expands your aliveness -- being in love with anyone, be it a child, a parent, or a friend. The joy to me in coming through and assisting others is watching those I speak to grow and love themselves more. That energy comes back to me and is amplified many times, so that I in turn can assist even more people through my broadcast of love.
Think for a moment of today or tomorrow. What is your day like? Is there something you could do to give love to someone or to experience more love yourself?
Open to receive love from every source,
for love is everywhere in the Universe.
If you exist in a feeling of love -- if you can find it in everything you do, transmit it through your touch, through your words, eyes, and feelings -- you can cancel out with one act of love thousands of acts of a lower nature.
Acknowledging people and acknowledging yourself is another way to experience love. Take a moment to appreciate everyone you see and to send them a feeling of love. This will change your life and raise your vibration rapidly. Being committed to the idea of love will bring it to you. Do not get into the personality level, where you ask, “Will this situation last, will it work?” Instead, ask right now, “How can I deepen the love that I have in this relationship?” Love operates in the present, and by focusing on it in the present, you send it into the future and release it to the past.
You can help transform the planet. It does not take that many people focused on love to change the destiny of humankind, for love is one of the most powerful energies in the Universe. It is thousands of times stronger than anger, resentment, or fear.
For a moment, think of three people who could use your unconditional love, and send it to them. Imagine three people you would be willing to receive unconditional love from. Then, open to receive it.
Can you imagine how it would feel if your heart were open, if everywhere you went you trusted and knew that the Universe was friendly? How would your life flow if you believed that your inner guidance was gentle and kind and that people were sending you love wherever you went, and that you were broadcasting a beam of love to everyone? How would your life change if whenever someone said something to you, no matter how it came out, you could recognize the love or the need for love behind it? You would be constantly looking deeper to acknowledge and recognize the love within each person, as I do. By recognizing love, you draw it out of people and attract it to yourself wherever you go.
As you go out into the world today, be aware of how you can express love through your eyes, through your smile, your heart, and even a gentle touch if it is appropriate. You came to earth as a community of souls, and all of you can send out a high loving feeling, a thoughtform of love, and offer it to each other. For the rest of today, be in your heart. Experience the love that is you, and as you do, be open to receive from others the acknowledgement of the beautiful light and love within you.
