“I realized that I wouldn’t be true to myself if I don’t write as my heart desires… I have found my inner peace as I am finally writing this.”
When I first started blogging, I wanted to write about love. Back then, my vision of love was very related to romance and the expression of affection, desire, and seduction. It spoke of a heart that longs for fulfillment of its passion. All in all, it was a very worldly kind of love, strongly linked with emotions. Actually, love is so much more than just emotions.
Earlier this year, I came across a book called “A Return to Love” by Marianne Williamson. It influenced me to perceive love in a much greater sense. It is so powerful that I finally bring myself to accept it, and here I am, ceased to resist. I am finally beginning to write about this great love! Consequently, I feel in touch with myself, that I am moving toward the direction of who I am. This state of connection is the root of love.
The essence of love is about alignment. It is the state of being synchronized and becoming one. I have come to align with myself. In other words, I have found my inner peace as I am finally writing this.
I had never posted about love before, because I just wasn’t sure how to integrate this writing with my fashionable pictures. Later on, I realized that I wouldn’t be true to myself if I don’t write as my heart desires. The interruption creates tension within myself, which is equivalent to disconnecting from myself. It is like hiding from love, and letting the mist of confusion casts over me. It is as if I had been ignoring the light that persistently beams at me all this time. I had been intentionally disregarding my calling, and I suffered as a result. I will let Abraham Hicks speak my mind: “You cannot hold yourself behind that which life has caused you to become. When life gives you an expanding experience, you gotta go, or you don’t feel good” (2008).
I eventually overcame the struggle by allowing this calling to flow through me. I surrendered the resistance to unite with myself. Then, the sense of inner peace reveals itself, and I am so joyful for its presence. I look forward to the journey with deep enthusiasm.
I will be posting more about love-related topics. If you guys have any suggestions, please write me!
With gratitude, I would like to credit the following authors who have inspired me: Abraham Hicks and Marianne Williamson.
