What Is Love? - No One Else Can Be Original For Us!

This morning I awakened with this question bouncing back and forth within my mind. Love is an emotion, which makes it a very powerful form of energy. We can live our physical life without any hint of loving emotions being present in our interactions with other people. But when we love ourselves, we will think about our life as fun. Every aspect of our continuous interaction will be enjoyable and exciting. We will learn to love other people in the same energy that we love ourselves. This brings us to the question of how much we love ourselves? If we do not love ourselves, we will continuously be sabotaging our own personal happiness. To love other people, we must start with self-love, which we can then reflect into our behaviors and into our multiple relationships. When we ask ourselves what it means to love ourselves, we begin to realize too frequently, that we do not love ourselves and we do not nurture ourselves in the loving manner that we should.

When we begin to look at loving ourselves, we must look at how we live the Ethical Values in our physical, emotional, and intellectual lives. The most significant way that we can determine how we live our love is to look internally to see how we continuously live the Ethical Values as we live our physical lives and especially our interactions with other people. Do we love ourselves? Do we take care of ourselves without living a lie in our relationships with other people? Loving ourselves and loving other people are not contradictory statements. When we see love as physical sex, we can become very confused about our love for other people, because we have been led to believe that “sex is love.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Sex can be a means of expressing our love, but we can also have sex without even a hint of love from either person being present. Our first image of love is found in the interaction that we have with our family members.

Love is an emotion of our Dual Soul, which means that love is built into the human design as part of the intelligent design of our Dual Soul. If we use only our intellect and we ignore our love, we usually do so because we have not yet evolved into our loving emotions as a Dual Soul. When we have not yet evolved into the loving emotions of our Dual Soul, we will usually have a belief that “sex is love.” Our loving emotions are an integrated part of our Dual Soul energy. When we begin our journey into our Dual Soul love we must get out of the image that our thinking mind is all that matters. Our thinking mind and our loving emotions share equal space in our brain energy. Have we been taught that our thinking mind and loving emotions are both energy fields that we must integrate equally within our own human energy? No, we have not been taught this concept that we should be equal in our thinking mind and loving emotions as energy, but we should have learned this vital concept.

We have lived with the “sex is love” belief to make sure that we continue with our evolution. Love is an emotion. Sex is a physical act. This means that love and sex can never be synonymous, but we have a personal responsibility to learn how to use our sexuality and our loving emotions simultaneously and equally. As a human species we are continuing to work with this lesson of our Dual Soul, because we do not always accept that sex and love are issues that we are attempting to learn as human beings. The only way that we can learn this lesson is to understand our human design. We do not need to go out on a sexual safari and experiment with our loving emotions to understand the depth of love that we are living. But we must begin to look at how we feel about our family members, our friends, and our acquaintances that we know and interact with.

We must all learn to love ourselves before we can truly participate lovingly in the sexual act with another person. Loving ourselves is not a sexual behavior, but it is a very loving behavior, where we take care of ourselves as though we are a trillion dollar investment that has come out of our own internal pocket. When we understand the investment that each of us has in ourselves, we never attempt to live behavior that is harmful to us. We cherish ourselves and our eternal human lives. We “do no harm” to ourselves or to other people. We live the Ethical Values of our Spirit Consciousness and we love who we are. Love is a very special emotion that is built into our human design of Spirit Consciousness, which includes our thinking mind, loving emotions, Spirit Senses, and our physical body. If we are not living our loving emotions, it may be because we have not known that we are energy as our loving emotions, and it is this energy of our loving emotions that supports our eternal life.

When we begin to truly understand our human design as energy, we begin to love ourselves. When we love ourselves we will release all of our dishonest behaviors that allow us to take advantage of other people, and we will appreciate the beauty and wisdom of “who we are,” as an evolving energy field that is living its eternal lives through the internal energy of our loving emotions as part of our Spirit Consciousness. We are a very special design as human beings, because we are designed with the ability to grow through understanding self. If we are afraid of understanding ourselves, we will avoid commitments throughout our physical lives by copying other people, with the internal concept that what has worked for another person will also work for us. Everything that we see, hear, touch, or feel, we will feel certain that it will not be “good” for us until we can “copy” it from someone else. This is the “tried and true” method of life.

Our “fear of failure” will keep us from being original with any of our creations, which will in turn expand our “need” to copy another person as we smother ourselves in fear. We want to copy another person because then we can truly believe that what was good for the other person will also be good for us, which will be used to lift us up in the sands of time. Copying is a “coward's” way of facing life. Originality is more than we can cope with, because people will know that “we are not as smart” as the people that we might want to be compared to. Fear is a terrifying energy when we find it snapping at our mind and we do not want to reveal ourselves. We cannot and will not ever live these fear emotions if we love our self. Therefore when we act out our fears in our physical life, we may not consciously be aware of our fears, but other people can easily see and recognize our fear energy, which many people will respond to through avoidance and copying.

Living the strength of our own internal convictions is how we learn to “love” ourselves and be original in our thinking and doing. No one else can be “original” for us.
