I’m just getting my bearings back this week after spending 10 heart expanding days at burning man. It was my first year, and it was more than I thought it would be. I knew it was going to be magical, but man, oh man … mind-explosion. For realz.
What I took away was so much love. Love in all forms. I felt the love there through community, growth, authentic connection, freedom, generous giving and receiving, through the celebration of who we each uniquely are, full self-expression in so many ways, healing, creativity … I could go on and on.
I wanted to share with you one of the beautiful expressions of love that I saw in my favorite art piece on the playa. It’s called LOVE by Alexander Milov from the Ukraine.
I saw two interpretations in this art piece that both led back to being loving. One is how we hold onto our anger and resentments for one another when all we want is for our inner child to connect and be loving. Forgiveness, compassion and choosing to be happy instead of being right lights the way back to love. The second is seeing how disconnected we become as adults through our conditioning. Our true desire is to allow our inner child to authentically connect, to be free and play. Raising our awareness, letting go of the stories that has us be inauthentic and disconnected leads us back again to love.
Now our purpose on this planet to is to love and be loved. So, we get to remove all the conditioning and unlearn all those things that are not of love so that we can return back to it. Take a moment right now and look at where you could expand into love. Do you need to forgive yourself or someone for something? Could you deepen your level of compassion for yourself and for others? Is there something you could give up being right about so you could be happy? Is there a story that you have to let go of that is killing your truest expression and fulfillment in life? Whatever it is, do it. You’re worth it. Be good to yourself right now and choose more love.
