What we presently perceive as our reality, individually and collectively, is in fact a very limited perspective of a much grander adventure.
The intricacy and magnitude of our combined thoughts, feelings, hopes, dreams and desires is astounding. Our ability to imagine potentials, coupled with our capacity to manifest these ideas and make them tangible experiences is nothing short of miraculous. The evidence is obvious in the intense diversity we find ourselves experiencing right now on our planet.
With this diversity comes incredible opportunity. Never before have we realized our creative capacity and simultaneously, the enormous responsibility held within each of our creations. We are rapidly becoming aware of our active participation in a shared reality that reaches far beyond us individually, our immediate family, friends or local community.
The ideas we presently entertain in our own consciousness are the seeds of a future yet to be made, that literally affects the whole. What we are currently conceiving and imagining will eventually interact with others, either enhance or destroy our expressions, and ultimately influence our collective lives.
Whether we experience life as a form of heaven or something less than that is simply a matter of where we place our attention. If we continue to focus on things that are limited, destructive, based in lack or held in the past, we are destined to create more of the same. Yet, if we are bold and steadfast, we are able to recognize the splendor held within each moment.
We understand the nature of our personal creative abilities through our thoughts and feelings and we willingly intend and experience outcomes that benefit all.
These are not idle speculations, an ignoring of present circumstances or intentions of false hopes. Quite the contrary, this is acknowledging and knowing that we are powerful beyond our wildest imagination and that we do in fact, have an effect on what happens next. Love is the key that unlocks our greatest possibilities. It is the presence of love that becomes increasingly obvious as we take time to notice it and integrate it into every experience. This is heaven and this is the potential that awaits you.
From the laughter of children at play to the golden rays of the sun beaming through the sky at sunset, the eternal song of love permeates all creation. Each beat of our heart pulses to this rhythm in a majestic and graceful dance connecting us to everyone and everything. Life is magnificent when we quiet our outer selves and become fully present and aware of our own loving essence.
To know this grander love is to go beyond the sensation of a first kiss or a mother’s tender touch in time of need. Although these extraordinary expressions reveal the existence of love, there is so much more.
This universal love is unconditional and its very presence ignites our passion and our compassion. It breathes life into our being and sustains us. It encourages and illuminates the infinite possibilities while simultaneously providing all that we require to be alive.
It is our heart center that gently nudges us to know and express love in all that we are. However this does not always come easily. Through eons of time, the conditioning by our mind to seek logic and reasoning in our daily affairs has left little trust in the wisdom of the heart.
Learning to once again cultivate our intuition, be intimate with our own unique understanding of love and to feel this love deeply, takes both courage and strength.
Unconditional love is our consistent source of nurturing, inspiration and potential. Interestingly, we often seek the beauty of nature for its extraordinary ability to be in constant change while ever expressing its interconnected uniqueness. This is what captivates and also reminds us of our own innate capacity to do the same. Nature has the ability to cycle, recycle, adapt, reclaim and reinvent itself over and over by simply fulfilling its distinctive purpose with love for all.
When we allow unconditional love to be our personal guiding intention, our energy flows in the same manner. We stay present in the moment and share our love without reservation or hesitation. We change, evolve, expand and express our creativity in new ways ensuring that it benefits the whole. In this way, life itself evolves through each of us. You are the heart of unconditional love. What you choose, we all experience.
The beauty of our journey is that we represent a full spectrum of sizes and shapes, colors and gender, beliefs and perspectives, while being ever connected in a common bond of unity through our heart. From the tiniest atomic particle to the brilliance of an imaginative idea that changes the world, it is love that guides our grand expedition in this experience of life.
Even when we choose to create the illusion that we are somehow separate from love, the potential to love remains in each moment. If we allow the perception of separation to last long enough so that we begin to doubt ourselves and this eternal connection, or even beyond to where the thought of fear intrudes, a simple recognition of our heartbeat is enough to remind us that love is right within our being.
You matter with each breath you breathe and step you take. Every action and interaction, thought, word and feeling makes a difference to everyone. No one could ever take your place and what you bring to this amazing tapestry of life is invaluable and cherished. This is the way of love. This is you… an amazing presence of love.
Love is such a powerful force
especially when shared.

Life is an ever changing landscape of experiences and potential. Even the most seemingly static aspects of physical matter continue to shift, evolve and transform. Whether simply as the dance of sunlight as it travels across the earth, a boulder slowly becoming a pebble in a meandering creek, or a cell replicating itself, change is constant. Our awareness is ever changing and evolving too as we expand our mental and emotional capacity to incorporate broader understandings and perspectives.
As self conscious beings, we get to play within this entire context. Our ability to conceive of something new allows our creative nature to manifest and add a dimension of love and appreciation to life itself. When we are consciously aware of our creative ability, we can choose our perspectives and therefore qualify and infuse our thoughts and feelings with our greatest hopes and dreams. We realize with each breath we are connected to all of creation and proceed in a grand alignment of our heart and mind. We manifest the potentials that reflect our wisdom and deepest desires. We are in harmony with life because we know we are an integral part of it.
If we forget our creative capacity however, we become reactionary to the forces around us. We become singular and separate and begin to doubt our dreams. We replace our hopes and desires with feelings of fear and worry and start to see problems rather than opportunities. This disconnect is a result of relying on outer circumstances instead of our source of inner wisdom and imagination. The more we focus externally, the more challenging life becomes.
When we remain harmonious, wisdom flows in from the heart and dispels any doubt or fear. This allows us to come up with creative solutions and imaginative ways to expand beyond the perceived problem by embracing the opportunity with love. We give ourselves the chance to change our limited perspective and find new ways to express our unlimited potential. It is through harmony in our feelings and thoughts that we are able to experience unconditional love.
by Harold W. Becker –
Our bodies are the vehicle in which our senses experience the changes of the seasons and the rhythms of our heartbeat, while our greater consciousness allows us to connect to the universal love that weaves its way through all creation.
When we are fully present with ourselves and our surroundings, everything and everyone is precious and each experience is embraced as an expression of love.
When we take life for granted however, and allow our traditions, attachments, habits and routines to establish themselves, we draw a veil of separation that cuts off our natural conscious connection to life. We begin to ignore the simplest treasures that abound all around us and instead seek to create a false sense of love in our attachments to outer things, people and circumstances. Eventually we doubt that love even exists and we begin to react to life with fear.
Yet, like a rainbow that appears during a storm to remind us that the sun is still shining above the clouds, love is eternally present and merely awaits our acknowledgment.
We need only take a deep breath and realize that we are already a part of this enduring love. It instantly pervades our awareness, washes away any remnants of doubt and fear, and illuminates the possibilities and potentials right before us.
Life is grand when we desire to actively participate with it through unconditional love.
When we are intimate with life, it becomes infinite in its expression.
Even if the storms may come from time to time, it is only an indication that we momentarily forgot that love is present. They will soon pass and we can once again express the love in our heart and experience the beauty that is life.
In a world presently filled with many clouds and potential storms, thank you for being the rainbow to let others know that love is always here.
