In a small outside gathering (socially distanced of course), I gathered with a few friends to celebrate the winter solstice. Self love became a topic there and the need for laughter in these times. Later, when having an outdoor lunch with a work colleague – self love came up again and we noted that you cannot love another until you love yourself. Then alone on my porch – I heard deeply in my heart, “There is only Self Love because there is no other.”
I decided to dive deeply into that awareness – or perhaps it absorbed me!
I breathed into the awareness – There is only Self Love because there is no other.” This is a concept that many spiritual folks speak to – but what is that really. This meditative conversation helped deepen my experience of this truth. We are all one – we do not look at the ocean as a collection of droplets, we see it as a whole. As are we, one whole. Enjoy this journey with me – there are several places where a concept is expressed and followed by a deepening into the energy….so expect some pauses and silence.
My next day was totally different and I released tension in my solar plexus
The next day after diving into this concept, I met a friend online just to practice being in presence together. In that time, I focused on loving myself. I recognized I was extending that same love to “the other.” Then, I looked at my image on zoom and their image – at that point I became the observer and lover of both as one. And as I held that space, the tension in my solar plexus released. My gut has been jiggling all day now!!! I hope you enjoy this meditative conversation: There is only Self Love because there is no other.
