I often say that what I’m here to do is to serve love. A friend of mine suggested that I clarify what I mean by that.
How I practice serving love, is by feeling in to what love would do. It can be regarding my life path, relationships, or just a specific item I’m considering buying in the supermarket. Everything we do has an effect on all that is.
See It’s all about love, everything. I don’t mean romantic love, but the huge overwhelming sensation of bliss, euphoria, gratitude, peace and joy that resides within you. That is who you are, that is home.
Our society has created countless products, services to try to mimic the sensation of love. But the truth is there is nothing you have to do, be or have to feel love. You are Love. Love resides in the vehicle that you call your body.
So asking yourself “what would love do” is asking yourself, what would I, you, we do? trippy? ok let’s let the mind explain it, this should be fun.
Humans have always strived for approval, for a sensation of righteousness, doing what is “right” has made us feel good, or at least so we think. The thing with outer approval is that it will ultimately leave us shattered and empty. Because there are as many “right ways” as there are beings on this planet. So how do you find what’s right for you? Well, when you ask what love would do, you tune into that goodness that resides within you, the part of you who loves everybody, the part of you who remembers who you are. This part, let’s call it your heart will guide you to YOUR path.
How this works practically, is for example if you are about to embark on a new journey in your career, and something in your gut isn’t sure. Then ask yourself “What would love do?”, and the answer will appear quite quickly, unless you let your mind go bananas with it, don’t do that, just ask and let it go, the answer will come.
What you are doing with this practice, is establishing a communication between the heart and the mind. With time and practice you will quickly feel what resonates and what doesn’t.
The mind is constantly gathering information and will have great reference points for you to use if you just give it the direction to what you wish to do. Like I wish to serve love in the best way I can. I want to do things, feel feelings, think thoughts that serve myself, humanity and all that is. When you give the mind a direction like that, it begins to assist you in making more loving choices. See the mind can be quite clever, because deep inside it knows what love is. The mind is and has always been an old companion to your heart.
This is a journey not a destination. I’m not constantly happy or acting like a saint in every moment. That’s not the point with this practice. Being Human means that we have the ability (and gift) to detach ourselves from who we really are and experience contrasts like pain, sadness, anger etc. Those are all a wonderful part of our guidance system and need to be valued. The point with this practice is to give yourself permission to follow your bliss and still the longing of your heart.
Whatever I’m doing I try to check in with myself to see where I’m headed. For instance when I’m on stage performing, I always ask what the most loving thing I can do in this moment is. I want to serve my audience and I want to serve and honor my being. The answers I receive differs depending on the day and vibration of the crowd, sometimes it’s says give more light and connect, sometimes it says pull back and go within and show your vulnerability. The heart senses every heart in the audience and can better feel into what the greater good in this situation would be. The same goes for shopping, the heart feels what I need and what is good for the planet, and they always coincide. So my job is quite easy, my job is to surrender, to allow this body and mind to be of service to my soul, to all that is, and to Love.
May your days be full of clarity, peace and joy.
