Receive God's love, it is always there

As so many of you celebrate your holiday of love today remember that God's love is all around you, available in every breath, in every glimpse of the sky, in every smile, and in even in every desparate glance of a stranger looking for comfort. God is the spirit that breathes life into you dear ones. God is never far. God is the love that animates all of life and so much more. Relax into God's love on this special holiday, for this is the love you are all seeking.

Sit quietly, breath slowly and deeply, and intend to receive God's love. Intend to allow God's love to permeate your body, mind, soul, finances, families, friendships, jobs, hobbies, and interests. Breathe and receive. Do nothing. Sit quietly and allow any anxiety to bubble up to the surface and give it to God. Breathe gently into your tight spots and allow your fears to be released from the body. Give them to God. Allow your upsets to bubble up, reveal their truth, and then give those to God as well. Breathe. Receive. Breathe. Receive. Breathe. Receive.

Dear ones you need never feel alone. You need never feel that you are without resources. You need never feel as if a problem, a difficult relationship, a dream that you don't know how to reach is beyond the universe's capacity to solve, heal, or manifest. The question is not, "Does God love you," but rather, "How much do you acknowledge the truth and beauty of God's love within yourself." Try to see yourself as a perfect act of God's creation. You - yes you - are perfect in God's eyes right now. An acorn is perfect in and of itself, and yet it will certainly grow into the mighty oak. An oak is complete in and of itself, and yet it has more to give as it bears its own fruit. And so the eternal cycle of growth and expansion continues.

Do not hesitate to love yourself until you meet some goal, become as kind as you would like to become, lose some weight, make a certain amount of money, or find the perfect relationship. Dear ones the perfect relationship occurs when you acknowledge the beauty, glory, and majesty of God within your own hearts. The perfect relationship occurs when you allow yourselves to sit still and receive and feel the creator's love for you. The perfect relationship occurs when you, filled with this love, share it with the world. Why wait to love and acknowledge God's perfection within you? Why put it off one more moment? Why find excuses to say you are not worthy, not lovable, not beautiful, not perfect as you are right this very moment? If you could see yourselves as God sees you dear ones, as we see you, you would never again put up with unkind behavior. You would never again settle for less than a joyous life. You would never feel alone. You would never labor under the illusions that God wants you to suffer. You would learn your lessons willingly, embracing even the challenges with the knowing that more love was waiting there to be discovered. This is truth dear friends. This is the truth of God's immense love for you - His perfect, beautiful, and ever expanding creation.
