I know there have been times I have tried to capture you, hold you hostage, and bottle you up, but today, with my Christmas eyes, I see that you deserve better. I hereby release You from my non-compete clause. To compete implies a winner, a loser, a relative ranking, but You, Love, stand apart from that silliness. There is no “better than” with You, no VIP access, no most deserved ranking.
Love, You are nothing less than brilliance. And, brilliance cannot be captured or rated, brilliance must shine…especially in the darkness. Just as a star would. Love, Your energy is one I can feel flowing through me when I am centered, heart-open, and present to the beauty only You can offer.
So, let me SAVOR Your brilliance on this Christmas Day. Today, I celebrate and honor Love by focusing my thoughts on You.
- I notice You in the first light of day from my perch on the couch.
- I receive You as gratitude for the warmth of the coffee mug I hold in my hands.
- I hear You in my daughter’s jubilant giggle as she jumps on the couch or in the surprise of my mother’s voice when I pick up the phone and let her granddaughter chime in first with, “Ehwo!” (That’s “hello” in Desi-speak…)
- I see You in my husband’s gaze when he says “I love you” before we turn off the lights.
Love, You are an energy I always have access to. I don’t need to struggle alone, prove myself worthy of your attention, or worry I’ll miss out. Your access code has no expiration date, no terms or conditions, no judges or gatekeepers. Through You, Love, I receive divine guidance and inspiration, I connect, heal, restore, and RENEW.
But, here’s the best part…the non-compete part. My access to Love isn’t limited by anyone else’s access or any external situation. I can bask in Love as easily as my neighbor or my perceived rival because we all share the same source code. As ducks on a pond, flowers in a garden, I am peacefully reassured by the creatures who understand Love’s universal non-selective principle. When I flow with Love, I feel joy as my birthright and I invite synchronicity. I pause when I receive to recognize and appreciate Your gifts and I give without condition or concern. I understand giving and receiving are the two sides of Your energy. I rest knowing there is an unlimited supply of You. Non-compete unnecessary!
So, with You, I shine my brilliance for the world to see. I let You gently erase fear and falsities, so I can RENEW in light, love, and…some sparkly stardust!
Merry Christmas, Love…
