For Valentine’s Day, I’d like to offer you a different way to approach Love.
Instead of looking to Love as material goods that are given or received (like chocolate candy in a heart-shaped box or a bouquet of red roses)…
Instead of looking to Love as a feeling that you share with someone (like saying I love you to your partner, dear friend or animal companion)…
Instead of looking for a kind of Love that makes you feel more complete (like searching for your 100% internet match, your perfect swipe right, or hunting for your soulmate’s eyes across a crowded room)…
…I invite you to imagine Love in a different light.
Imagine that Love is the very nature and essence of the Universe itself.
You can see examples of this all around…
…planets and galaxies circling in cosmic attraction, trees reaching up to embrace the sky, or the wind caressing your skin.
Now, imagine that you aren’t separate from this Universe. You’re actually an integral part of it.
That would mean that whatever this Universe is, you are too.
If Love is the nature and essence of the Universe, then Love is the nature and essence of who you are.
From this place, then, imagine what it would mean to “be” love.
Not to love, or be loved, but to BE love.
What if you embraced the notion that you were Love itself…you being Love?
Being Love, how would you express yourself?
Being Love, what would be the quality of your connections with others?
Being Love, how would you care for you?
Your coaching assignment for this week is simple.
As you move about your day, ask yourself, “How am I called to be love in this moment?”
And then go and be that divine expression.
Simply, Be Love.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
