How often can you honestly say that the LOVE you give is out of and from the Heart?
When you give your LOVE, are you even aware of where that LOVE is coming from and if any conditions are surrounding that LOVE?
No matter how you may have answered the above questions you will be glad to know that a quote from Oscar Wilde gets directly to the point about where true LOVE comes from and how to give from that place.
"To give and not expect return, that is what lies at the heart of love." Oscar Wilde
Let’s be honest, from a very early age most of us have been conditioned to say Thank You whenever we receive just about anything from anyone.
As a result, if you look around and notice, two things quite often have begun to occur. First off, for most people because Thank You has been conditioned into us so much it has pretty much lost its meaning since everyone is "expecting" to hear it.
Second, when someone doesn’t say "Thank You" it has a tendency to land the wrong way and the silence are non-acknowledgment isn’t well received.
Yet, if you read the words from Oscar Wilde above you might begin to recognize times in your life when you simply gave to give and didn’t expect anything in return and if you are anything like me those were probably some of the most rewarding and memorable experiences of your life.
Now just imagine what it would be like if you began starting today to simply give out of LOVE rather than expecting anything in return.
In fact, more than just giving out of LOVE what if you also began to learn to say "NO" out of LOVE as well.
Of course, learning how to give out of LOVE and say "NO" out of LOVE would require you to go deep within and begin listening to your HEART.
And if you’ve been paying attention then you already will have begun to recognize that indeed when you find yourself listening to your HEART you are actually listening out of LOVE so that when your HEART speaks LOVE speaks and you can never go wrong when you find yourself listening from within LOVE rather than without LOVE.
By now you are probably wondering how you can listen to your HEART so that you can express and receive out of LOVE. That’s why you will be glad to know that the practice of Yoga Nidra will guide you into the deepest states of your BEING which is where the state of BEING LOVE happens to reside and the ideal place to listen to your HEART.
