Here I am patting my little cat called Huckleberry. She is a sweet little cat however years are catching up with her and she has the natural aches and pains which comes to most animals as they get older.
As I sit here with her patting her and she is purring away quite content and it got me thinking of how important love and touch is to all living beings - including us humans!
There are many things which can stop us from loving another deeply and truly such as fear of rejection, intimacy issues, sexual problems, anxiety, lack of self worth, or issue from the past.
Social media is a way of connecting with so many people - but it is also a barrier to really connecting with others. How many times do you go out and see teenagers out with each other - but engaging with their mobile phones and missing what is right in front of them.
To connect with others we must first disconnect. How true for this time of social media.
Many people search for money for their happiness but true happiness comes from love and with. I read a news article the other day about a westlife member (former boy band) who was bankrupt due to bad investments into the property sector. He has a wife and children and when we declared himself bankrupt he had £500 pounds to his name.
Through the process of getting himself back on his feet he discovered himself and what was important for him - his family. Having too much money actually made him unhappy so we wants to start a solo career and earn enough to support his family.
These experiences that we go though sometimes, although stressful at the time, can be a learning and a gift as it allows us to re-focus on what is important - love, family and friends and what is right for us.
When we open our hearts to love, our whole world expands and we begin to see things in their true light - and they flow of love and understanding naturally flows into others.
Today - how would it be to focus on what you love, embody that and live it!
