The moment you have in your heart this extraordinary thing called love and feel the depth, the delight, the ecstasy of it, you will discover that for you the world is transformed. -Jiddu Krishnamurti
How true this is. How many of us feel this transformation with the first blush of love? That extraordinary feeling that washes over you as you immerse yourself in that new love; the boundless energy, the pitter-patter of your heart, the giddiness that transforms the adult into a child. We have all felt that rush, have we not?
But, is this the love that Krishnamurti is speaking of? I think not. I believe he is speaking of an unconditional love that applies to everyone and everything -- a state of being "one" with all that is. No judgments, separations, illusions, or false beliefs -- an acceptance, awareness, and embracing that illicts the feeling of deep love. A love that transcends the mundane and ordinary and perceives the extraordinary in everything.
Imagine being able to carry this in your heart? Even if for brief moments throughout your day. How extraordinary to perceive the world from this place of love. The path to this love is through gratitude. Every morning sink into gratitude. Every evening, before sleep, sink into gratitude. Stop during your busy day, take a moment, breathe deeply and sink into gratitude. Watch what begins to happen.
Your world will transform~
