Learning to love unconditionally benefits others but the greatest benefit it to the one who "learns" to. That's the way the universe works, you don't get left out.
Loving those who hate you is harder than loving those who love you. But it has to be done for ONE'S OWN SANITY if for no other reason. I understand that being unkind to anyone is me moving away from soul. I want to move towards and align with soul so I have to do what my ego tells me is unthinkable - love those who mistreat me. Making progress.
With the ego, you have to remember : it is a self-supporting opportunist. It doesn't want to die. The ego actually has a much smaller role than we have allowed it to function as, so it has to be shrunk back to normal size. The ego wants to live so it always will tell you that you need it to help you in your day to day life, but what you need is soul, not ego. Soul is the higher vibration, soul is the love you want for yourself and others. Ego creates pain and division. Ego is loud and noisy, soul is the quiet voice in the background. Listen to it, not the noise.
I feel the way to do this is to see how I mistreat myself. My reaction to others' treatment of me is what I am being shown needs to be dealt with because a reaction of anger is self abusive:
I like this chart:
Reaction....... You Need to Develop / Learn
Annoyance ..... Patience
Abandoned.....Stand up for yourself
Anger ..... Forgiveness & Compassion for others & yourself
Power over You ..... Take back your power
Hate ..... Unconditional love (a big one, I think!)
Fear ..... Courage
Can't control..... let go and trust the universe
So the light snaps on. Last night, upon reflecting on current b.s., the same stuff I've gone through the rest of my life, I had a moment of clarity.
It's not learning to love life that you have to do, or even learning to love others unconditionally..... when you live on 3d earth and have difficult situations constantly, that's kind of hard.
It's learning to LOVE YOURSELF that you have to do, learn to love yourself unconditionally, learning to have patience for yourself, learning to forgive yourself, learning to have courage for yourself. Not inflating the ego, but coming from a heart felt self love.
Because when you do these things automatically for yourself, you do them automatically for others and life just becomes more enjoyable. All is a reflection of yourself, so that's what you have to learn to love unconditionally.
I had the shoe on the wrong foot. I thought you had to learn to love life or everybody else, no matter what they do to you. When you come from a place of self love, the rest is easy. Remove the blocks to feeling the love that you are.
A great comment in my group. She said a daily mantra of "I am Love" to help you understand who you are. And your true polarity as well, I think Ivo has added.
You don't align with anything less! All of that is being expunged from us now as we go through Ascension. As we go to a higher dimension (vibrate within its frequency) we need to resonate with it and that means anything unloving has gotta go!
Another one Ivo had me drill was "I am higher consciousness, an energy within a physical body."
Oh yeah. When you say these mantras, watch what kind of thoughts come up to resist your embracing this as true.
Love doesn't "happen" to you. You ARE love.
Again, another bypass, compliments of the Matrix.
First of all, telling us that love "happens" as if we have no control over it, and then secondly seeing love as something external to us, and then something you "get" "by chance."
