Love can only Love Me Back

by Adele Leung, Hong Kong

I thought I would not be loved because I share different views on God with my blood family. My view on God does not have a Bible to back it up, only my heart. For a long time, I dared not open my mouth to speak about any of it, for the feeling of – who would listen? I knew I was not alone in this when I met with the reflection from Serge Benhayon’s books. I knew that my heart had not lied to me, that: God is Love and Only Love.

I thought I would not be loved because however subtle, frequently I have experienced on–going power struggles in relationships. I was ‘loved’ when I was weak. And whenever I began living who I truly am, the questioning and resistance, especially from those close to me grew. In turn, I reacted. I could and have continuously tried to justify these power struggles. Thus, I have done everything, except for truly loving.

I thought I would not be loved, if I spoke what I was truly feeling especially in relation to abuse I could feel. I was feeling and accepting everything about another, before honouring my feelings first, and not standing up to say no to what is not okay, I was actually not loving – neither to myself or to another. What I thought to be love, was actually condoning and perpetuating separation, first and foremost, to myself.

I thought I would not be loved because I do not ever ‘do’ coffee, alcohol, drugs or a big meal to have a ‘good time’ anymore. I even go to sleep at the time when most people are just ready to begin their nights. I feel bored watching telly and most of the time fall asleep in the middle of movies. Thus, I am not great in ‘socialising’ as how the world understands this word to be, but I am quite awesome in socialising with myself. When I meet friends, to me, it is unimportant what we do or where we go, for none of that is necessary for a true connection to happen.

I thought I would not be loved because I do not belong to any community or tribe, sect or pact that provides the cushiony support of like-mindedness. On the contrary, I stick out like a sore thumb in my home country – most think I am joking when I tell them I belong to the brotherhood of humanity. I have tried to do many things to not appear different, but how can not living who I am really confirm who I truly am. So what do I choose: do I know or don’t I know who I am? It comes down to an issue of honesty to and for myself.

I thought I would not be loved because I do not work for riches or identity. Although I do have a job or two, and I provide for myself and my son, I can’t help but share with a wink that my real job is knowing myself and reflecting that in every part of my life. Sadly, most don’t share my play-fullness when I tell them that.

I thought I would not be loved because I truly do not know how to convey what is in my heart if it is not heard from another’s heart. There were nights when I pondered what it would be like to make up my own language or perhaps to just stop speaking. I realised that neither are the solutions for my deep desire to express, or just simply, to communicate.

I thought I would not be loved because most of the time I do not need to be needed and do not ‘do’ love. But I am expected to anyway. We cannot really be ‘doing’ love – we can only be it – so to me it is not about proving love by showing niceties… This doesn’t mean I would not buy gifts or send cards or tell someone they are beautiful, but it is not done out of being nice or because it is a ‘proper’ thing to do – it is because of my impulse to share love in such way.

I thought I would not be loved, because the world understands love differently. I only know this because I am the same as everyone else – in that I had accepted the ‘love’ we are taught from young for so long, even though it did not feel truly loving to me. I searched for love everywhere outside of myself. I went to many places and have done many things in the name of ‘love’, however, that which I thought was ‘love’, still hurts many people including myself. I felt I had lost the one thing that guided my whole life – True Love. I felt betrayed, misled and lost.

When I ran out of options, I decided to give loving myself a try. This began as a discipline that introduced more and more gentleness towards myself, and rather than holding on to right or wrong, I began to feel from my body and listened to it. Until one day, this love that I have been practising and opening myself to, has allowed me to feel so truly loved, and this love is no different from the love I share every time I love someone else deeply.

At that moment, I smiled, and thought: How could I ever feel scared or sad or lonely and not loved?

It is absurd and impossible for me now.

Love can only love me back.

  1. It is so clear in your words Adele, the way these thoughts get us to walk away. They make it seem so reasonable to consider what could happen and the potential downsides that await, to be fearful or apprehensive about what will transpire. Yet in its own strange way these thoughts show us the truth. For when we do the opposite of what they suggest – commit and get closer together, open up and bring more honesty to the table, Love transforms the situation we see, so the problem is no longer a difficulty. Life and everybody suddenly sings beautifully. So one simple choice to disregard thoughts and honour Love, opens the door and the way to a whole heap more in our day.

  2. It’s a glorious day the day that anyone first recognizes “How could I ever feel scared or sad or lonely and not loved?” Because they feel the deep love they are and have for themselves and a know that with this everything will be fine.

  3. What we ‘think’ is love is not a connection to the true love that we can, if we choose, feel in our inner-heart and from this connection to our own inner-heart feel the love in another.

  4. For a long time I have looked for a man or woman that lived God’s love. When I first met Serge Benhayon, I knew I had met that person. What I did not realise at first, but would eventually become my greatest revelation was that I equally could embody that love. It was mine for the choosing, as it is for us all.

  5. This is so true Adele, so powerfully true… love can only love us back. So we are never alone when we love, and for sure we are held in the love we hold ourselves. This is the best revelation ever, gosh it is so good to return. Again this love was shown to me at first again by Serge Benhayon and Curtis Benhayon, so thank God for their embracing of love.

  6. “When I ran out of options, I decided to give loving myself a try.” It is so interesting that we are not taught to love ourselves as we grow up. yet if we don’t, how can we love another truly?

  7. I totally agree with what you share Adele,that love can only love us back. I found that once I started to love myself, I noticed how others started to fall in love with me too.

  8. Even though I wrote this blog, I refer back to it often as the words that have come through are here to support every time when my foundation is asking to go deeper, I have found that the greatest support we can ever receive in life comes from the confirmation and connection from our bodies. The deepest and most unwavering support we can ever receive in life, is from our own love. And it is in every challenging situation that we can return to this support, and it is in every vulnerable situation that we are offered the opportunity to deepen our love with ourselves.

    1. Thank you Adele, for pointing this out, it is very soothing and empowering, knowing that the choice is always ours to simply turn even more deeply towards ourselves.

  9. I am constantly being offered a deeper connection to loving myself and there is a waywardness in me that wants to distract me with outer things and the thoughts that perhaps I should give more weight to the outer voice, the value of what others think because there is more interest and drama in that. These outer things pale into insignificance when I feel the exquisite love I have within me. There is no competition and no need for the drama and entertainment of that wayward voice.

  10. These words spoke so strongly to me today as they summed up how I existed for so many years, putting everyone else first in the futile pursuit of what I thought was love. “I was feeling and accepting everything about another, before honouring my feelings first, and not standing up to say no to what is not okay, I was actually not loving – neither to myself or to another”. To understand that not only was I hurting myself in this process, but also others, was quite shocking to acknowledge, but when I did it felt so very liberating. To finally understand what love truly is was the catalyst for change in a life that was crying out, not only to know true love, but for change.

  11. I deeply appreciate your honesty in your expression as you explore your experience of what love is Adele. It all comes back to understanding that we are love and can only know it within ourselves first. Beautiful.

  12. ‘My view on God does not have a Bible to back it up, only my heart.’ Learning the Bible back to front, trying to understand its nuances is a life time’s work, and difficult not to fall into our own interpretations here there and everywhere. Yet knowing our heart is simple – we are already experts, and have a body that is finely tuned to reading its every nuance. Therein lies a deeply rewarding study, no PhD required!

  13. Women being loved and accepted as who we are when coming into our power is not yet a normal in our world. How many women because of wanting to fit into relationships, hold back expressing the truth of themselves? But what if, everything that we have ever wanted, the love that we know and that we have sought high and low for, would not be a possibility when we hold back expressing the truth of ourselves, for how would truth be reflected back to us if we do not first live it?

  14. Feeling another before myself is a momentum that is slowly losing its hold for the love that is felt inside guides me back to myself and from there what is value is deeply understood and treasured.

  15. Let go of the picture of what socialising is—hanging out with friends in bars and late nights etc, and redefine what socialising is to me, truly being with myself, holding true conversations, feeling how every part of my body is communicating to me, choosing what to eat, when to sleep, how tender I am with myself, this is building a foundation of true communication with myself which is also the foundation for communicating with others.

  16. What is a community? What is the purpose of having a community? Mostly communities exist for support, they represent a common thread that we have accepted and together in unity (not in perfection) this commonality is being expressed. The most crucial in communities though is what we have chosen to align with, and we can only align with what is truth or what is not truth.

  17. Without building a rhythm with ourselves—i.e. Knowing ourselves, how can we truly work in the world? The rhythm our world currently runs in is one which is not only very hard on the body, it takes us away from the connection with ourselves, therefore, when we succumb to this rhythm which is not natural and not our own, we are always working against the harmony that we know. How many of us when we work this way have chosen to ignore the body’s messages because the world pays us back in recognition and all physical riches? We are being sedated in comfort to ignore what is true until our bodies can no longer accept the abuse we have chosen.

    1. So true – when our bodies start communicating loudly with us that aligning to external rhythms and not the rhythms of our own body isn’t working, it’s a call to go deeper within, to look at why we are working in the way we’re working: if our body is not getting anything out of an abusive way of working, then what are we getting out of it? Recognition, the need to feel ‘safe’ and in control – which are really just illusions, since we don’t actually control anything at all.

  18. It can feel overwhelming with the awareness that true love can only be comprehended by another when it is also lived. Does that mean we could never be understood when we express what is true love? It only feels overwhelming when our thoughts think ahead of our body. For when we simply feel the love within us, gradually more each day in consistency, this is the love that we will start to naturally emanate, express and share. We are sharing what true love is with everyone we meet. And it is our responsibility to. This process takes patience, and it is not easy but the love within us and the reflections that slowly grow will continue to support us, and it is in surrender—deeply so, that we will feel the most held by love.

  19. What if the world understands love differently and has defined love to be something love is truly not? We just have to live what is love in truth, yes we will stand out, yes we will appear different, yes we may not be accepted, but choosing anything else is like saying a human being is made of plastic, it just does not make sense to perpetuate such a lie any further.
    So why not be seen, be different, be the leader, rock this truth in all the divine style and natural coolness that we are but have held back.

  20. The deepest and most unwavering support we can ever receive in life, is from our own love. Absolutely Adele, our own love can only love us back.

  21. Love is, and has always been, the essential nature of all that surrounds us, is within and without of us, it is in our breath, and in every cell, it is the nature of our true being.

    1. Absolutely Chris, what an absurd game it is to think of it as in short supply or conditional to some behaviour when it is as natural for us to live, as the air we breathe.

  22. Simply stunning Adele, what a beautiful account of what love is and is not for starters, with all the misconceptions we buy into throughout life that actually lead to nothing but misery.

  23. Everyone deserves to feel loved, the same as everyone deserves to love who they are – it takes some work and some commitment but it’s completely worth it.

  24. How many times did I hear those words… God is love, in my childhood, going to church, having the words droned at me… The words themselves dry as the outback… And yet if one follows the ancient path of reconnection to one’s inner self, the words come alive like the desert after the rain.

  25. “I have tried to do many things to not appear different, but how can not living who I am really confirm who I truly am.” While reading this line the question came up who is here the different in truth?

  26. ‘I have tried to do many things to not appear different, but how can not living who I am really confirm who I truly am?’ Simply awesome question and to which there is only one answer – it can’t!

  27. There is no quota of how much love is on offer. It builds from our willingness to let it out. One step at at time and the change is felt.

  28. “What I thought to be love, was actually condoning and perpetuating separation, first and foremost, to myself.” I would still be stuck in this way of thinking if I had not had the good fortune to be introduced to the teachings of Serge Benhayon and Universal Medicine. I still have my ‘L’ plates on in relation to my understanding of true love but am loving the journey and loving life, myself and others more and more each day.

  29. Religion in itself is actually by definition a personal relationship, and not a communal one. Unfortunately, the word itself has become bastardised to represent the latter,and so we think of religion as being “organised religion”, or a system of dogma based on faith and hope and adherence to rules, rather than a forever unfoldment of understanding of our true origins, which is its true nature.

  30. The other day when something came to hurt me, I thought “an open heart cannot be hurt.” This is true for when I stopped and let go of protection and just felt love, I was fine. We can react and bring in other thoughts and justifications but if we bring in love then understanding comes. Love is our greatest moment, our best protection, our constant friend.

  31. Adele I felt such a joy while reading what you have so beautiful shared: “Love can only love me back.” What else can love do – love is so simple – I only have to chose to open myself up to it.

  32. I have found that in taking care for myself is bringing me back to my body from where I rejoined my connection with God, that inner spark that lives in all of us and in making us equal and the same. it feels like coming home when reconnecting to that inner spark, as I felt it all my life like a string that always pulled me back to question myself and my relationship with the purpose of life, that there must be more to it that I could grasp at that moment but now, by connection with the love that resides in my body, is easily understood and no question for me anymore.

  33. I heard for most of my formative years… ( I was an Altar boy in the Anglican Church until I was 15 ☺) that God is love… It never made any sense at all and was just words until I attended presentations by Universal Medicine

  34. “I thought I would not be loved, because the world understands love differently” – what you touch on here is that humanity needs to be re-educated on what Love actually is rather than what we have comfortably/ignorantly chosen it to mean for us

  35. Love has always been presented as an outward expression, a giving, a doing for others, but it was Universal Medicine that introduced the concept to me of self love first, then the picture started to change. I built the love within that could be felt by myself and others and it became a foundation for deep connection and relationships flourished from there. Love is my guiding light, which holds me and all I meet in equality and paves the way with support, protection as love only reflects Love

  36. Picture a river, it does not flow one stone and then stop and consider whether it is welcome on the next. You do not see a bird fly for a moment then cease and wait for the support from the sky. I’ve never seen a tree stop growing and wait to be reasurred that there are other like-minded trees out here too. So why is it we seem to need to have our Love confirmed too? What you help me see Adele is that this neediness or insecurity really isn’t Love or me. Let us know the Love that flows through us is greater than trust and warmer than a summer’s day – and holds our heart and the world in a truly special way.

  37. Yes Adele, once this is realized, we can understand also why we have been walking around needing love, as we did not give it to ourselves. So we must walk our love and letting come to us in a natural way.

  38. “What I thought to be love, was actually condoning and perpetuating separation, first and foremost, to myself.” A standout line in a blog radiant with wisdom and true love. Lately I have begun to feel how I have chased love while refusing to be it. Certainly not a fruitful or fulfilling way to operate.

  39. ‘..my real job is knowing myself and reflecting that in every part of my life.’ So true Adele, when I feel the truth of who I am, I become one with all of humanity and my real job is definitely reflecting that in every part of my life. How simply beautiful. I will never be out of work!

  40. Thank you, great contribution – love is not an emotion (thank you, Serge Benhayon) and once we realise it, there is no going back and love does indeed, love us back.

  41. How gorgeous that after a lifetime of looking for true love and being hurt by the love we have created and settled for, you have found a way to be everything for yourself, no longer betrayed, misled or lost but rather embraced forever from within.

  42. A beautiful connection to have that everything that counts is the love that we live as this love will equally come back to us and thus we can deepen it with every step more.

  43. Truly expressing love and living from love within ourselves can bring nothing other than love back. What I am constantly learning is that no investment of what is outside of that love helps me to see clearly what is going on in relationships, and in the world around me.

  44. Every moment of life is about deepening the love that we know within ourselves and expressed in more fullness outwardly. This allows me to see in what areas I could deepen self-love and hence the love for others, and it is exactly that in these areas that life is asking me to not hold back my love and evolution.

  45. I love this Adele –” When I ran out of options, I decided to give loving myself a try.” This is how it is for most people; we try everything else and eventually get to the point that if we start with ourselves we might actually get somewhere. Humanity-Us: we just have to laugh sometimes with how ridiculous we are and how little we can see the absolute obvious!

  46. …I can’t help but share with a wink that my real job is knowing myself and reflecting that in every part of my life.’ Knowing oneself is connecting with the love we are made of and this is certainly our purpose in life! What a joy to know this!

  47. Yes Adele, It’s those thoughts we have that are truly mad. For our particles and cells never want to be apart, we are naturally made to know and enjoy Love. Its just the thoughts that are not us that get in the way of the bodies wisdom leading the way.

  48. Adele, ‘this love that I have been practising and opening myself to, has allowed me to feel so truly loved, and this love is no different from the love I share every time I love someone else deeply,’ is gorgeous. From someone who is realising how little I’ve truly loved myself and is coming back, this is gorgeous to read. Thank you.

  49. When we give up trying to ‘do’ love we discover that just perhaps, love is a beingness and something that is already innate within us and not something we have to earn, deserve or seek. It is given to us all equally – for that’s the kind of father God is, and that’s the kind of essence love is.

  50. As I become ever more aware of how this life works, it is clear that it is what we express that we experience just as much as, if not more so than what anyone else expresses. When we express love, we experience love. We are not dependent upon anyone else for this – it is ours to choose. Our expression includes our choice to accept or otherwise the things others present to us. If we accept what others say, then this becomes our expression too and we feel this too. Expression is more than I thought it was and working with Serge Benhayon has made this abundantly clear. What a most valuable message to receive.

  51. When I was willing to give love back to myself it was clear that who would not want to hear what I have to say, who would not want to see the reflection of love? Some may choose to resist it, but it was clear that, the answer was a clear resounding and light-hearted, “who wouldn’t?”

  52. I can fully relate to everything Adele has shared here, I lived too with all those thoughts and the emptiness of believing them. That was until I too started to self love. This is an ongoing, continually deepening way of being in the world that has allowed me to feel the love I hold inside, that is actually constantly wanting to be expressed in loving others.

  53. So very true so very simple and yet we get caught up in the game of love that is no love at all. We have made love something that is a million miles away from what love truly is, while it is being with us all the time, within, and we simply need to choose it and make it our everyday being.

  54. I just Love this blog Adele. The teachings of Ancient Wisdom through Serge Benhayon have allowed me to realise that enormous Love I am and that we all naturally are. You put it so beautifully,… ‘ How could I ever feel scared or sad or lonely and not loved?
    It is absurd and impossible for me now.
    Love can only love me back.’

    1. Recently I have been given another opportunity to express the enormous love that I am/we are and although I still feel the lingering of a past pattern of wanting to dim down this expression, I did not, and that set another marker for more evolution. Every day what we have expressed in words allow us to live that deeper—Love can only love me back.

  55. Beautifully expressed. Looking outside for Love is not the way, I have also done this and realised that it does not happen, there are always hoops to jump through to fit the criteria for recognition and attention, for it is to really Love anyway. Love is within us and it can be reflected out and shared through this manner, not through giving it or taking it, or having to fit in….An inspiring article.

  56. True, we can never feel lonely when we open up to the love that is within us, yes love ourselves, and through this we are accessing something so deep and grand, and knowing of our universality and a foundation of love that is within us all.

  57. Super revealing and powerful blog. Showing us that there is only one way to love. That is re-connect to our within and accept all there is. Enormously so. Thank you Adele for sharing such simply truthfullness.

  58. This blog is just exactly what I needed to read today Adele, thank you. It seems that loving ourselves comes bottom of our list of things we’re prepared to give a go – after searching high and low outside of ourselves for answers, at some point, turning inwards and re-connecting with what’s there, is the only option left. And what an awesome option it is, too, as we begin to re-discover who we truly are, underneath all the layers of ‘stuff’.

  59. I also love how you share your way back to loving yourself – by being gentle in your every movement, thought and action, and letting go of right and wrong. When we judge ourselves as being right or wrong, or hold ourselves up against an image of who we think we need to be, it’s a kind of prison that we put ourselves in – one entirely of our own making and one that feels suffocating, draining, and stifling.

  60. There is a certain irony that when we know who we truly are, the depth of this knowing unifies us with every single person that lives and breathes on planet Earth in the sense that we feel the truth of our origins, the absolute majesty and divinity we are ALL born from. We feel the depth of this connection to our bones and beyond. However, due to our current predicament here, most of us do not walk around knowing we are each an equal Son of God and so when someone does move in and with this knowing they stand out because it is not what the majority of people are at this stage choosing for themselves. So on the one hand, knowing God brings us closer together because it honours the fact that we are all One, unified by this eternal love, but it also makes us stand out from the crowd. This can be quite unsettling initially as we innately know we are no different to each other in essence but until we all express what is within us out into the world, we will keep living in this seeming divide. Perhaps this is why many of us shy away from claiming the truth of who we really are – we fear the reaction of others along with the greater responsibility we carry for holding this reflection.

    1. Liane, I melt when I read your comments – they are irrefutable, absolute and speak to every cell in me and I can feel the one unified love we all belong to. ‘knowing God brings us closer together because it honours the fact that we are all One, unified by this eternal love,’ it is this depth of relationship with ourself and God that makes us all know we are equal and is proof that love can never be a doing but is simply a being all that we naturally and truly are.

    2. I have come to realize truth is unifying always and therefore whether anyone chooses to realize they are a Son of God yet or not, they are still a Son of God, and when a Son of God simply claims this truth, standing out will not be the issue, the seeming “issue” only arises when we choose not to claim what is inherently true, a truth true for ourselves and everyone equally.

  61. This is a deeply delicious blog Adele. Thank you for sharing and I love love love how you have exposed all the trappings and things we can fall for in society as being love, when in fact they are not. ‘how can not living who I am really confirm who I truly am.’ This is true – if we live what we are not then that is what we are confirmed in but if we live who we are in our heart we will confirm everything of who we truly are even though this may make us stand out a lot because the majority in society do not do this. There are so many gems in this blog and I will enjoy commenting on them.

  62. ‘This began as a discipline that introduced more and more gentleness towards myself, and rather than holding on to right or wrong, I began to feel from my body and listened to it.’ It is amazing how responsive our body and life becomes when we honour our natural flow and rhythm. When I started making simple changes with how I was with myself and in my life I was truly surprised with how quickly I seemed to undo my past choices by connecting to myself and moving forward in life from that connection, making choices from my heart and listening to my body. Our body and our being is ready to surrender to all the love we are if we just et go of the patterns and behaviours that don’t honour our innermost. The love we are.

  63. A lovely examination of the intricacies of love, thank you Adele. The stand-out phrase for me on this reading was ‘I was ‘loved’ when I was weak.’ I’m thinking of all the ways this had played out in my own life, and how it’s far more comfortable to play to that weakness than stand tall and empowered. Staying small we guarantee love in the form of being liked and acceptable, an emotional-based love… which has nothing to do with love in truth. Well done for not being willing to compromise the love that you are, and finding support for that by turning to the love within.

  64. Even though i keep trying to turn my back on the amount of love that is within is overwhelming. Ten years ago it was not something i understood and then it was something i held in knowledge it wasn’t until i lived it practically making small changes as they unfolded that i began to feel how endless this love is.

  65. Your simple and honest words make me realise once more Adele, that any moment I am seeking support from people or situations outside of me, I am already lost and far away from the true facts of life: I am Love, I am warmth, tenderness and understanding. And if this is awol or absent with leave, inside of me is where I will always re-find it.

  66. “When I ran out of options, I decided to give loving myself a try.” isn’t it funny how we can leave loving ourselves to being the last option. When really it should be our very first.

  67. We have all heard the sonorous tones of religious teachers saying God is love… Said until it totally lost its meaning… I know this was the case for me. It really is like a miracle when a connection is made within to who we truly are, to that divine love that rests within, so that we can start the unfolding journey of realizing the living this of this statement

      1. Both words – resurrection and restoration – reflect the fact that we are returning to the true meaning of the word love, done only through the way and quality in which we live our lives.
        What a blessing, to have the awareness that the true quality is actually known within, and that we need not seek outside of ourselves for it. Through recognising and saying no to what is not true, the shining gem of universal truth is revealed once more.

  68. Adele, all that you have shared and all the offerings you have added have been a true support in deepening my understanding of love and of grounding me in feeling and holding that love. This has been a truly beautiful exercise and it is with deep appreciation I express a ‘humble’ thank you.

  69. Adele this is a powerful and moving blog to read.I love how you no longer need to seek outside yourself and came back to love through being in re-connection within your body. Totally inspiring, thank you.
    “When I ran out of options, I decided to give loving myself a try. This began as a discipline that introduced more and more gentleness towards myself, and rather than holding on to right or wrong, I began to feel from my body and listened to it. Until one day, this love that I have been practising and opening myself to, has allowed me to feel so truly loved, and this love is no different from the love I share every time I love someone else deeply”.

  70. God is love and only lover; we are sons of God and only love. Thus it is our responsibility to let our innate and natural love shine. True understanding and acceptance of this fact is my challenge.

  71. What do I say, how do I move, what is the quality that I choose? It might seem like we are paying attention to minuscule things, but my experience is they absolutely add up. Without the love for myself in all of these, the sums and equations will always equal disharmony, difficulty and complication. Love brings such simplicity to the maths of our life. Thank you Adele for the clear reminder.

  72. This is a beautiful understanding of true love Adele and how much we miss out on the grandness and glory of this deep love if we accept a lesser version of love.

  73. This is so beautiful to feel the truth of this as I read what you’ve written. I have my own version of why I wouldn’t be loved and have tried hard to be loved. But when I re-connect with what I know to be love, love loves and I am not separate from it. So thank you for this reminder.

  74. Adele, returning to this beautiful blog has supported me claim the true love I am and to hold this first above all else. It can appear easy to get caught up in the ‘Love’ that come from outside of us, that doing for everyone else, having a good time partying, or living by the rules someone else rewards are what is loving, but in truth this is harmful to self and to others for we are not being honest. Thank you again for the reminder that it is ‘Love that Loves you back’.

  75. It is only when we feel the love within us that we can really love another, it is actually that simple. When we hold ourselves in ‘any’ sort of critique, judgement, lack of understanding or not in our fullness, we cannot hold another in the same light. That is becoming more and more crystal clear to me, how I live and then how that impacts on my feelings towards anyone around me.
