Love Is Within

Connect to the love within first, before looking for it outside yourself. This love within is always there. It’s the love that never leaves, the love that can’t be lost. It’s there for you – exactly as you are. Once you’re connected and aware of this love, you’re tuned in to love’s frequency, like a radio tuned to your favorite station.  When you’re tuned in to love, you’ll not only receive more of it, you’ll be transmitting love as well.

I’ve made two new flower mandalas from my photograph of a lovely peony bloom. Usually I don’t make more than one mandala from the same flower, but this flower had a lot to say. Love is the energy of both of these flower mandalas.

The message of the Love Is Within mandala is that love is found inside you, inside each of us. It’s unconditional, your natural state of being, your spark of divinity within. You don’t have to earn this love, you only need to accept it. It’s yours, always, unshakable, inexhaustible.

Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you. — Eckhart Tolle

Love said to me, there is nothing that is not me.
Be silent.
~ Rumi

The Gentle Strength of love is the energy of the second flower mandala. It reminds us that while we hold thoughts of love, it’s impossible to hold thoughts that are fearful, angry, full of blame, or judgment, at the same time. Love makes us strong, and also gives strength to the ones we love.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. ~Lao Tzu

When you’re connected to the source of love, you are your true self. Always remember, you are dearly loved. ♥
