Finding the Love Within
by Luzia Light
“Go beyond yourself. The true meaning of life is love in action. By giving you find true happiness.” ~ Tina Turner
When you truly begin to love yourself, you will not put up with crap anymore! That is what I have discovered. I have never so intensely focused on healing the heart like I have this month, and something just has to shift when you focus on expanding your heart that much, something’s just gotta give!
I recently rewatched the movie “What’s love got to do with it?”, which tells the story of Tina Turner. Amazing movie, if you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend it. What I am always most inspired about is how she grew up in this loveless world, where her mother just left her, then she ended up with a husband who disrespected her and beat her until she bled. Eventually, she comes to a point where she hits rock bottom and is introduced by a friend to buddhism. As far as I know, she is still a buddhist today. Once she began to chant (Nam myoho range kyo!), her energy began to shift, she began to connect to her spirit and divine love. And once she was connected to this energy, she began to love and respect herself which then led to her fighting back and leaving her abusive husband.
And this is what happens to everyone when they connect with their heart and divine love, they begin to love themselves and will not put up with disrespectful behaviour anymore. You stand up and you speak out! For yourself and others. You cannot love yourself and stay in an abusive relationship. You cannot love yourself and be paid minimum wage for excellent and superb workmanship and service. You cannot love yourself and abuse your body with unhealthy food and toxins. You cannot love yourself and let someone talk down to you. You choose between being a victim and being a Goddess (or God). You are divine, and once you are aware of it, you expect to be respected, loved and valued. There just is no other way. Loving yourself will forever change your life. It’s a ritual to be practiced every day. Remind yourself every day: I am one with God/Goddess/AllThatIs. I am divine love.
Today’s Mantra: I am one with God and the Universe. I am divine love.
