daily inspiration: how to live in a state of love (1 of 3)

Posted on: February 28, 2011

Recently, on Valentine’s Day, we looked at the idea of being in a state of love – rather than falling in or out of it. The obvious question is… how? Yes, it’s easier to say than do. Let’s delve into this.

Focus on what you have to offer – not what you want in return. If you’re focused on reciprocation, your love is conditional. Now, this doesn’t mean you should just give and give until you’re depleted. That just means you’re without self-care. It’s a matter of focusing on giving from the heart.

But you can also give from the heart to yourself. Start when you’re alone. Visualize breathing in and out of your heart, per the heart breathing technique discussed previously. But this time, direct it toward yourself. When you exhale, instead of just giving outward, breathe from your heart into your entire being.

More techniques coming in part 2.

I have always had an issue with this day…It has always had some element of giving something that may not want to be given…for what ever the reason is personally..You may have the greatest love for someone because you allow them to be…and be with you…reciprocated of course. It is the freedom without expectation that fees the spirit of giving to be etherial.
