Allow yourself to experience ALL feelings

Living like a robot, dealing with rage, being open to love flowing through you … certainly a LOT of things to meditate upon and digest over the past few days.  The first, and MOST important aspect, is getting to a point of having an open-hearted connection with God … being “awake”.  When you achieve this, the task is then to maintain such an openness … being open in the face of ALL things is very difficult.

As we go through life, we experience EXTREME emotions … love, jealousy, bitterness, bliss, rage, joy, and many more.  The challenge is to experience these emotions, but to never allow them to shut you down … to close your heart.  The wonderful feelings can close your heart because you desperately want to hold on to them … and spend your life trying to make them a permanent fixture in your life.  When they go away, you then become fixated and depressed because they are gone.  The negative emotions become things that you fixate on in a different way … you try to overcome them.  As you strive to overcome these things you also become fixated … except this time you are trying to define yourself as the opposite of what you hate.  When you become the opposite of something … you are not grounded, or in the middle … you are at an extreme.  Peace, Joy, and Happiness will never be achieved in such a place.

Having an open heart really means that you allow yourself to experience ALL feelings … without holding onto them, or shoving them away.  If you feel rage, you accept it … you let its fire RAGE … and then you let it go.  The same is true for any, and all, emotions that we come across in life.  Don’t fight them … don’t try to shut them down … simply allow them to be, and then let them go. Give each emotional space to God … allow that feeling to be and then to go; allow that internal space to be filled with Love … instead of clutching, grasping, clinging to each and every thing you feel.

When you love someone … express it, embrace it, lavish that person with love wholeheartedly.  When that love changes, for whatever reason, our challenge is to let that love go.  It is NOT easy.  For anyone … we go through a grieving process … grieving encompasses MANY emotions.  Don’t shut any of them down … allow yourself to cry, permit the anger that makes you shout in rage, stay in bed when you are depressed … but THEN LET IT GO!  Allow ALL of these feelings to happen … just keep your heart open through ALL of these feelings … invite and allow God to be a part of them.  If you keep your heart open and connected to God?  Healing will come with time … if you shut your heart down and hold on to those negative feelings?  You will remain stuck in that place for years, even decades, until you allow such a blockage to be removed so that your energy can flow free again.

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
