Free Unlimited Love!!!!

“Love is a better teacher than duty.”  ~Albert Einstein

We tend to put limits on things.  Limits can be very good.  I limit the amount of soda I drink to about 16 ounces a year.  What can I say?  I like Root Beer.  We would do well to limit our food intake. It would probably be wise to limit our alcoholic beverages and our pot smoking.  We can limit our time spent in front of the TV and reading trashy romance novels.  We should limit our time working.  There are things, though, that we should not limit, simply because they are infinite.  We should not limit our circle of love.

When we limit our love to only those who we know then we are doing ourselves and the world a grave injustice.  When we give love to everyone our love only continues to expand.  When you see a person who may cause you to feel uncomfortable, such as a mentally ill homeless person, and you extend love to them suddenly you feel better.  Not just about that person, but about yourself as well and the next person you see will benefit from your expanding capacity to love.  When I say extend love to them I don’t mean buy them a sandwich or give them some change, I simply mean to feel love for them and send it to them.  See them as perfect beings of love, as you are.

Many people, I have found, love only those with whom they share a blood tie, others love only those with whom they share a national tie, others love only those with whom they share an ethnic tie, and so on.  Why is this so?  If you put twenty-seven toddlers in a room, each of them a different race, ethnicity, gender, religion, socioeconomic group, or political party (we’ll give them the party of their parents for this hypothetical!) will they isolate themselves, will they distrust or dislike the others?  I kind of doubt it.  All of our likes and dislikes are learned.  All of our prejudices and politics are learned.  All of our isms are invented to divide and conquer.  As long as we see ourselves as a world of differences, then we are a world of separation.  As long as we distrust those who we perceive to be different we are acting in fear.  Fear of attack based completely on an ignorance of the other’s life.

We tend to be insular and distrusting.  That is what we are taught as children, generally by our religious dogma and our government’s propaganda.  There is a priest who says there is no such thing as hell.  He says it was made up by the church to give them power over the people.  He states that there is no God that would condemn a person to an eternity of torture.  Our governments tell us that there are terrorists.  These same governments support political coups, terrorist cells, and wars based on economic profit from the natural resources of countries.  People aren’t born with hate in their hearts.  They are born with love and trust.

Unshackle your heart.  Open your mind.  Love All.  Back in the 1970’s, I believe, after years of the Cold War, when Russia and the United States were supposed to be enemies, Phil Donahue did a show in which he had one audience of Americans and one of Russians.  Not politicians, not government spokespeople, not corporate heads, but just your average everyday citizens.  They all stated that they didn’t hate each other.  Who was doing the hating here?  Who was imagining this great divide?  And why?   It doesn’t matter.  But, whoever it was, they were misguided.  The Cold War was an era of hate and mistrust based on nothing but propaganda.

Today we have the same misguided notions being delivered to us by the media.  A not so independent media.  Don’t listen to it.  Listen to your heart, the one you were born with, the one that knows only love.   Don’t hate the misguided souls who preach division.  Send love to them, too.

Don’t limit your love to your family, or your small circle of friends, or your race, or you ethnic group, or your socioeconomic class.  Open you heart to love all.  Whenever you see someone, anyone, send them love.  Forgive everyone.  Know that we are all doing our best.  If we could do better we would, right?  So would they.  Remember, it’s fear that crowds out love.  Don’t let fear of others keep you from enjoying a life filled with love.

love-vs-fear

You choose which one to turn on.

Never limit what is infinite.  Your capacity to love is infinite.   When you love someone you help them to love themselves and you help you to love yourself.  It’s another win-win situation.  Go ahead, live life unlimited!

Unlimited affirmations:

  • I love all beings.
  • I extend love to all I see.
  • I am love.
  • I am part of the infinite energy of love.
  • I love myself.
  • I forgive all.
  • My life is perfect.

Imagine that you are at a meeting in the United Nations.  Suddenly everyone stands up and starts to walk around the hall, hugging everyone and telling them they love them.  Isn’t that what a group of little children would do?  See it and enjoy the vision.

  1. I am totally there with you on the love factor. Unlimited and freely given to all.
    I’m not so sure about the whole idea of all people just doing there best. Yes, there are many factors that lead people in the way they handle themselves. Do we just look at them and think or say, oh well they can’t help that behavior? Don’t we all have choices to make?
    I think we have all known of others that even given all of the “right” tools they still make choices that can bring much suffering and even death to others.
    I find myself wondering where atrocities, such as the holocaust, rape, abuse and abortion come into this way of thinking. Should we just stand back and figure love will conquer?
    You have stated your unbelief in hell. I could be wrong but I think you believe in Jesus and the teachings of scripture. What other than hell do you think Jesus is referring to in Matt. 22. The parable of the wedding banquet refers to those who are unprepared being thrown into darkness where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. What about Matt. 25 the judgment of the nations. When the Son of man comes in His glory and separates the sheep from the goats. I could give many more examples but will stop there.
    I get not condemning others. That’s not our job. I don’t believe there is absolutely anyone who can say they don’t judge certain behaviors or circumstances. If that’s the case why do laws and courts exist. We all make judgements based on our beliefs.
    If Jesus told the adulterous woman to go and sin no more, then didn’t he have to judge that her behavior was sinful? Did he say that’s ok you can’t help yourself? You are doing the best you know how.
    If we all just focused more on our own shortcomings and how we can do better then we wouldn’t be pointing the finger at others. The old plank in your own eye. I know that’s how I have come to be a much more loving and forgiving person.
    Not sure if you are referring to a Roman Catholic priest that says there is no hell. If so he is going against what the church teaches and believes. I am aware there are those religious that are not following the precepts of the church and are giving others what they want to hear. We can all find others to agree with us if we look long enough.
    I like a lot of what you share on your blog, but I also see some misdirection. I share this opinion of mine with much love and concern.
    Much of what you share here does have to do with Thy kingdom come thy will be done, but in reality there is a lot that goes on in this world that is intrinsically evil and the work of the devil. He does excist and there are those who choose his direction. Even after they have been taught an shown a better more loving way. That’s why prayer needs to be ongoing.
    Blessings to you always. May you always seek truth.

    • Thank you for your comment, Kathi. I don’t believe in hell. We all come from different backgrounds with different genetics, different opportunites. Some of us were fortunate enough to have wonderful loving parents, some have horrendous circumstances. Some are smart, attractive, and healthy, others seem to have been born with no positive attributes at all. Some are more capable due to personality traits to cope with certain conditions than others who experience the same conditions. We all came to learn, we all came to grow. I believe in reincarnation. We get to do this until we get it right. Jesus affirmed to his disciples that John the Baptist was indeed the reincarnation of the prophet Elijah. In htis way people have a chance to understand what it is that others feel. If you live a life as a Nazi you may reincarnate as a person who is persecuted so that you may understand their suffering and learn compassion.
      I don’t know if you have done any research on the Bible. First of all, Jesus didn’t commission it. He didn’t write it. It was written by people. Then it was decided which written words by his disciples and followers would be included in the Bible by other men later on. Four separate times members of the church got together to decide what would be included.
      Some very important gospels were left out, in my opinion. The gospel of Mary Magdelene being one. The other disciples considered her Jesus’ favorite and Jesus knew that she understood his message better than others and yet the church excluded her gospel.
      I’m saying that I don’t take the Bible as a completely inspired work. I do believe some of it is inspired. I believe other parts were changed and excluded to fit in with the political and religious goals of the time in which they were included.
      Popes over the years made cuts to the Bible if the text did not correspond with their best interests. I do not take the Bible at face value because of hte history of men’s involvement in it’s construction. I believe if you read the Bible with the intent of having the Holy Spirit guide you to the truth than you may find the truth if you are open to that guidance.
      No matter what, it is hard to put into words ideas and concepts that have no meaning in the physical world. that is why Jesus spoke in parables to so many. He knew his message was so far beyond their scope of understanding. Today we have the ideas of quantum mehcnaics which can actually help us understand Spirit. Strange, but our comprehension has increased due to these discoveries. The idea that there is no such thing as time and space make Jesus’ teachings much more clear. They were far to esoteric at the time for almost anyone to fathom.
      Anyway, I believe some souls are lost when they die due to the extreme confusion and disturbance of their spirit at the time they die, but I beleive that they eventually come out of the shadows and are given another chance to shine. It wouldn’t be fair to give one person every advantage and another none and then judge them with the same microsope.
      I hope I have made myself clear. Words are just symbols. Peace, Karen

      • Thanks for sharing more clearly where you are coming from. I’m not sure what to think of all of what you shared in this response.
        I’m curious where you found all of your information. Like the gospel of Mary. I’ve never heard of any such thing.
        Where does a person look to find all of these things you are speaking of? What exact scripture speaks of John the Baptist as being reincarnated? How or where is it told that Mary M. was His favorite?
        Is there tangible proof of all that you share here? I ask all of this not to be argumentative. I’m truly interested.
        I really don’t have the kind of time to find concrete evidence of of the profound claims you are making, but I would be willing to read some on it if lead to the proof.
        All manner of claims and heresies have been spoken of and written on for thousands of years. Sometimes it’s a trust issue, or as you share praying for wisdom and guidance from the Holy Spirit as to the truth.
        I worry at times that this would be the new age movement. I’m honestly not completely familiar with what that’s all about.
        The one thing that keeps me corresponding with you is that I see that you believe there is a God. Not that I treat those that I know and love, such as my own son and brother in law, any differently because of that. I just have no room for that unbelief, so our conversations on that matter don’t go very far.
        I will look forward to the next response to these questions. Thanks for your time Karen.

      • Here is an article from the NY Times which tells a little of the unknown gospels. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/24/opinion/nocera-the-gospel-according-to-mary.html?_r=0
        Here is the actual text (interpreted of course) of the Gospel According to Mary Magdelene. When Jesus speaks of adultery he is talking of adulterating the message of God, not infidelity, http://www.maryofmagdala.com/GMary_Text/gmary_text.html
        Thomas felt that he could not interpet Jesus message because, as he told Jesus, he did not understand it well enoughand felt he should just repeat Jesus’ words to people. Here are Thomas quotes of Jesus. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/religion/maps/primary/gthomas.html
        Maybe I’ll have time for more later. As Jesus says, Keep Seeking.

      • Forgot about the John the Baptist source. “For all the prophets and the law have prophesied until John. And if you are willing to receive it, he is Elijah who was to come.” (Matthew 11:13-14)

        “And the disciples asked him, saying, ‘Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?’ But he answered them and said, ‘Elijah indeed is to come and will restore all things. But I say to you that Elijah has come already, and they did not know him, but did to him whatever they wished. So also shall the Son of Man suffer at their hand.’ Then the disciples understood that he had spoken of John the Baptist.” (Matthew 17:10-13)

      • I find all of this very interesting. I will continue to seek further on the origin of it all. Thank you for taking the time to share what you have so far. I would be interested in more if you want to send it along. I’m certainly no scholar, but I do like reading things such as these. I also like discussing matters of faith and spirituality with others. We are here to learn from each other, but I certainly don’t want to be lead astray or in a direction that God would not be pleased with.
        I think you are a mother, and so I wish you many blessings on this Mother’s Day and always. As long we can stay away from the commercialization of ” official” holidays I suppose they are nice.
        I have received two letters in the past couple of days that were incredibly touching and brought me to tears. One was from my oldest son and the other from the mother of 3 children I have cared for the past four years. I’ve actually known her since she was 4 and cared for her some as her mom and I have been friends in a whole other time and place in my life.
        This was my last year for caring for them. I babysit only for teachers, and after this summer they will all be going to school full time. The things that they both shared in the letters is somewhat hard for me to accept, but I believe I am suppose to take and embrace the good others see in me. If you remember I tend to be pretty hard on myself.
        My sons words spoke of nothing but goodness and love that he experienced while growing up. He also wanted me to know the good far outweighed the troubles. I could not ask for a more loving gesture.
        From my spirit to yours, peace and love. Kathy

      • Kathi, What a beautiful Mohter’s Day for you. I think you should accept these tributes as a gift from God. You are a divine child of God. Don’t forget that! you are perfect. Peace, Karen
