If you look deeply with openness and availability to know the truth, you will find the seeds of Love—True Love—are in your own heart. Love is inherent in you. The presence of love can show up as longing for it in the Other. Yet, you won’t find your love outside in somebody else.
Often, we misplace our own hearts and set them in someone else’s keeping. Thereby we let our seeds sit in a dark place, unwatered. Waiting for attention. We think the problem is: ‘They have not watered me. They forgot.’ In that darkness, we create a separation. We put the responsibility for our own inner growth in someone else’s hands. As long as you see the power to nurture your heart as coming from somewhere outside you, you will not be connected, empowered or sense yourself as whole.
Like the plant seeking the light through the pavement, the heart will seek love. Thus, in any moment it is also possible for a miracle to happen. For a bud long closed to blossom. As we uncover the layers of gross negligence, of loss, of fear, of disillusionment, of heartbreak – there’s always the seeds of love there seeking to grow – thirsty for water and hungry for nourishment and light.
Start where you are. Water yourself. Tell yourself how good you are. See the beauty in your seeds of love. Shine light on them in every moment with loving kindness. Be to yourself a vortex of your own awakening. Stand on your holy ground.
Just nourish yourself. It begins now. Place your hand on your heart. Close your eyes. Say to yourself, ‘I am awakening within my own heart to the love that is here, the love that I am, and the love that I always was and ever will be.’
