Each month, this column features a “Message from Love” with an action step and meditation. Each message gives examples of what Love might say and do in various circumstances. So, whenever you find yourself feeling scared, angry or uncomfortable, instead of letting fear have its way, practice asking yourself:
What would Love say?
“Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself.” – Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist
What would Love do?
Hold any pain or suffering in your heart. Let it be soothed with love instead of fear.
Meditation for Love:
Sit quietly for 10 minutes. Place your hand at your heart and breathe into it. Focus all your awareness on welcoming the energy of Love. Place any kind of suffering inside your heart and let it be held by Love. Tell your suffering that it is okay to feel what you feel and that everything will be all right.
