Today, I am re-posting a recent article by Matt Kahn. Please visit his website for more excellent guidance about love, healing, and everything in between.
It’s important to notice how the inner-workings of spiritual love are different from expressions of personal love.
In personal love, you often invite others with whom you resonate into the depths of your being for further communion and connection. Spiritual love contains almost the opposite movement. Instead of attempting to bring each and every person into your heart, it is an opportunity to allow the love you have within yourself to radiate toward those whose journey could benefit from greater blessings.
To bless from the heart of spiritual love is merely the assertion that those who hurt others do so instinctively because of unresolved pain— a depth of pain they may be unaware of in an effort to avoid facing it by spreading domination, manipulation, cruelty, or harm.
In the subconscious mind of an unconscious being, as long as they constantly play the role of ‘the hunter’, they believe they are free from remembering what it’s like to be ‘the hunted’. It’s a simple equation of hurt, so not to be hurt again, and dominate, so not to be dominated again. Such an understanding doesn’t validate their behavior on any level, but provides a bird’s eye view into how deep into the predatorial darkness the survival mode can go.
No matter how furious or incensed these actions make you, the blessings of spiritual love suggest: “I send you this light because I respect the evolution of your soul too much to help you avoid your history of pain by condemning or criticizing your actions. May you be blessed with light, so to break the cycles of abuse, so no other person, including yourself, may be hurt moving forward.”
The essence of spiritual love is liberation from deciding who is or isn’t worthy of the light, since those in most need of the light often cry out for it in the most horrific and self-destructive ways.
To determine who deserves the light or not, will only place you in an existential hell of judgment and finger-pointing. And yet, such a hell dissolves when you realize you are an expression of Divinity, helping manifest Heaven on Earth by dissolving the realms of hell in sight by offering light to those who need it most.
Spiritual love is “not” defending the actions of the unconscious; it is merely a way to bless others with the very light that allows your own infinite capacity to be remembered and realized for the well-being of all.
Simply put, when you send blessings of light, you are asking the Universe to help reform someone’s behavior to be more God-like than God-less.
The more you invite the Universe to help others step into their true God nature, the more Godly grace awakens in you.
With this in mind, if you are aware of narcissism or unconsciousness, it is only because characters demonstrating these tendencies must be blessed, as well. You may not let them in your home or trust them with your children, but they too must be blessed with the light of spiritual love in order to advance our world into the grace of unity consciousness.
In the end, only love can make things right for the equality and expansion of all sentient beings. No matter the circumstances in view, the vibration of love is ready to transform your reality, but it needs the will of your open heart to enter this world.
