Everything is energy. Everything is energy connecting everything! A shift in energy in one place shifts energy other places. I lift my energy to the vibration of love and light, to God, to all that is Divine. I am responsible for my energy and I choose to free it by releasing the Divine Love within me.
You do not even know the good you are doing.
If I shift my energy here, releasing Divine Love, I have freed it to do something somewhere. But I do not know what or where. I may or may not ever see the effect, or experience it, or know what has shifted somewhere else.
All thoughts or expressions of Love are maximized in Divine Mind. Divine Mind uses them in the highest way possible, for the greatest benefit of All; they go where they are needed according to Divine Will.
I am able to direct my love; I am able to think about “sending” love to people or situations. But any thought I have about where I think my love should go is just a sliver of wisdom. If I direct my love I am still limiting it. Releasing Divine Love within me means not choosing where or how I think it should be utilized, and trusting Divine Will to use it for the benefit of All (including me).
The Highest direction of Love comes from Divine Mind, but Divine Will works with us and with our free will…until our will is One with Divine Will.
I recognize my own limitations. I want to see the effect. I want Divine Love to affect me. I want my life to increase in joy and peace.
It is precisely this “I” that I need (also) to release. There is no “I” in Oneness. As I begin to accept—really accept—that there is only Oneness, the “I” fades, and I can trust that “I” am receiving the benefit of All.
As I was thinking this, I was imagining a wild animal refuge, a place where hurt animals are cared for, rehabilitated, and then released back to the wild. Our Love is like those animals. We nurture it, make it stronger, help it along, keep it in enclosures to keep it safe and protected. But at some point it must be released. At some point it must be freed to live the life it was meant to live. It takes courage to nurture; it takes wisdom to know when it’s time to let go…then it takes courage to actually let go and trust.
