It’s about love.
It’s odd because I felt so alone and yet so full of love, today.
Earlier this morning, I was thinking about love. I felt it, I let myself mentally roll around in the good feeling, like a soft cloud, cozy and soft with a sense of deep contentment coupled with a great temptation to explode with joy.
I was reveling in that feeling, but then I felt rather than thought about what isn’t love and the difference was oh so clear…
Clarity sets me free. Free to be alone, but what I want is love.
Just a few hours later, I learned a lesson about love…
It came quite by accident. I was tired in the afternoon and for some reason, pulled out my own MP3 recording.
I lay on the floor listening to my own voice guiding a student through Constructive Rest. Instead of being self-conscious at the sound of my voice, I found myself relaxing, going with the flow.
I got up and felt really good; so good, I just wanted to share it.
So I did! I announced on Facebook that I am sharing this with everyone who wants it. It’s my gift. There’s a link at the bottom of this email, for you, too.
Ha. Now I was committed and had to figure out how to use MailChimp and where to upload a file. It took me awhile! I got the thing done and said to the world, “Here! Enjoy your neck, you will feel better! It’s my gift to the world!
I was scared of technology but did it anyway. People accepted my gift and suddenly a feeling of love welled up in me.
A free neck is peaceful. It is non-resistant. it is open to movement, to dancing, to breathing and singing.
Doing Constructive Rest today was letting go of fear because where there is fear, there is tension sneaking around in there somewhere.
Tension closes, it is constrictive. Love eases, love opens.
Letting go of my neck is opening me to love – to conquer my fear of technology and dive into the guts of MailChimp and figure it out. To realize that I am not empty even if alone, in fact I am feeling quite filled with love….
The truth is, Love has been floating all around me all the time, and when I let go of fear, love rushed in. It filled me to the brim with love for everyone else. Love for people I haven’t even met. Love for you and your neck if it is tense, to help it feel ease, to help it be free.
When in doubt, love.
When in need, give.
I found love.
Offering a gift freely
Peace is a free neck.
and Love is letting go of fear
Where there is not fear, Peace is. Love resides.
I let go of fear and offered a gift freely. Suddenly I was filled with love, brimming with love. Giving gifts is filling me to the brim with love. It’s about love. That’s what a free neck is. It’s love.
Such peace in the letting go. Letting go of my neck and giving a gift.
So comes love.
