As a little girl, I was often told and retold the stories and teachings of Jesus, whom I now prefer to call, Master Yeshuah. The one who lived his life in the Christ Consciousness of unconditional love.
One of the most difficult teachings for me to grasp until several years ago was the teaching of “love your enemies and pray for those who spitefully use you…” I found it nearly impossible to grasp how to go about loving my enemies. And why on earth would I pray for those who used me? I barely knew how to love my family and friends, and certainly didn’t love myself. Loving my enemies was beyond my intellectual and emotional grasp.
After an experience in my kitchen a few years ago, an experience which changed my life forever, I get it.
I was given the gift of feeling what love really is. It isn’t an emotion, it is energy in motion. It is the God force energy that exists in all things, even me. I finally understood that I am love. I am divine love. I am one with God – the energy of love. It is the stuff I am made of and all things are made of. It is the glue that binds all things and beings together. Every leaf, blade of grass, flowers and wind, my heart and yes, even those who I may have once seen as my enemy, are the embodiment of love.
There is nothing that isn’t love! We just can’t see it through fear-full perceptions.
So, what does it mean to love your enemy and pray for those who spitefully use you? It means to recognize that YOU are the source of love. When you love your enemy, you see them through the eyes of love. When you pray for those who spitefully use you, you want their spite to be healed. That is the Christ Consciousness of love and understanding.
It breaks my heart when I hear of people praying for God to destroy President Obama or casting spells on President Trump. Seriously? That’s the opposite of what Jesus suggested!
Focus on being Love and projecting Love outward. The love that comes back reflects the love within you.
Projecting love to those who don’t love you in return, helps to heal their heart, and strengthens yours. Negative projection, unloving projection, creates a block in your own flow. When you damn someone else, you dam yourself. You simply cannot hate someone else without damaging your own heart. Your heart is meant to spread love and to be a source of light. Remember that, be that. Send love to your enemies that their hearts will be healed. That is the only path to real freedom.
Turn on your heart light. Let it shine wherever you go. (Yes, a song might get stuck in your head)
Remember who you are. You are love in a body. Be that!
