Give Love Rather Than Try to Get It…

I am sitting writing in Costa Coffee and I have just witnessed one of those ‘things that happen’ between human beings…

A lady was sitting waiting; she had been there some time and had the air of someone waiting for someone. She sat with her suitcase beside her, she didn’t order a drink, she just waited… For a long time, maybe an hour she sat there.

I went to the loo, and when I came back, she had asked another lady also sitting waiting, to call the person she was waiting for.

It transpired she had just come in off an international flight and had no money and no phone…

Collecting lady – lady 2 – was waiting for her at arrivals… There had been confusion as lady 1 had got through so fast and come straight here, and lady 2, although she had said to meet here, thought she would get to arrivals early and surprise her…

But it all went wrong, and lady 1 was too cross and upset to hear lady 2; and in the end lady 2 just said ‘I’m sorry’ and off they went….

Not too good a start to the holiday…

And yet, if there had been a little more listening and a little more slowing down in the dialogue, the tension and energy dropping that occurred need not have happened…

But it did…

The first words out of lady 1’s mouth were ‘I’ve been here since 1 o clock’ and she couldn’t hear lady 2 explaining she thought she had beaten her to arrivals and wanted to surprise her…

Of course, ideally if lady 2 had stayed with the plans on the piece of paper, which said ‘meet at Costa Coffee’ then all would have been well…

As my grandfather used to say….

Order, Counter order, Disorder!

I am enjoying my day at Gatwick… I loved doing my ‘live broadcast’ on Facebook this morning…  I feel I am actually talking with people in my vlogs, but being ‘live’ is another level…

The wonders of this big village we all live in now… To be able to chat away with you in Cornwall, America, Sussex and Hampshire…

After my ‘live video’, I went to run on the treadmill, there was another guy in the gym training too and he didn’t even seem to notice my bare feet…

I then opened all my mail from yesterday and I have many gifts!
Wendy, my friend, had sent me three pairs of her barefoot jewels or as she calls them Ju elles ! 😀 They are so fabulous and fun and I had other packages from my mystery YouTube fans too!

I felt very loved; and as I unwrapped all my presents, I was reflecting how love is love, very clear and pure and uncomplicated if allowed to flow freely…

The more we clear away any blocks to love in ourself, then we are communicating love all the time.

We no longer need people to be a certain way… If we love ourselves and clear the tension when things ‘seem to go wrong’, like the situation with the women I witnessed earlier, then there isn’t a dropping in energy – as any mistakes or confusion don’t hit an unresolved wound of feeling ‘unimportant’ or perhaps ‘abandoned’ or any number of possible unhealed hurts within…

When we love ourselves, we become love… And when we become love then there cannot be separation, so even if the medium of communication is through the written word, through video logs, through Facebook live broadcasts! if the energy we are communicating is love then this will be received… It cannot be any other way…

And so I feel love as I am receiving gifts from people I do not know, but of course I do know them, because when I am talking to them on my vlog I am loving them – and I am sharing my energy and I am part of their life…

And in a strange way, it ‘personifies’ how to live out pure love, where there is no expectation, no pressure, no loss of freedom, because if we curtail another’s freedom or we feel curtailed then this is certainly not love…

All our relationships need to have freedom at the core, this is more important than love; because the moment we start to put expectation on another, then we are trying to get love rather than give it…

Whereas the more we are committed to clearing all blocks within us to love, then we cannot help but give love in our every breath….

When we give love to ourselves through clearing any places where there is not love, then we naturally give love to others; rather than trying to get it from them, when the only person who can truly love us is ourself…

This then gets reflected in the seeing our love reflected back from others…

Later…

Anadi and I wandered out of the Hilton to go and have some supper at the Giraffe in the airport… As you do when you are nomads ! 😀 And then I experienced one of those wonderful things that happen…

Wenche – an amazing beautiful soul who teaches yoga all over the world – and I, literally walked into one another! And of course into a delighted hug of eternal friends, who haven’t seen one another for a few years…

Both Anadi and her son carried on walking and found they had lost us…! Anadi said he was chatting away and then I suddenly wasn’t there, and Daniel came back saying he had lost Wenche !  😀 What fun and joy the dance of life and love brings us….

 

 

 

I have been running all of my life – it feels I was born to run. In the running step I experienced freedom and my true expression. I came to see that I needed to ‘get out of the way of myself’ and let my energy flow through the running step; allow it to express itself in the dance and the motion of running. I ran for England and GB for some years. My first international was in 1979, a three mile cross country race; and I continued to run at international level until 1993. Two of my best results were first place in the Dublin City Marathon in 1985 and 7th place woman, 3rd British woman in the 1986 London Marathon in a time of 2.36.31, which gained me selection for the Commonwealth Games.

As a little girl I ran barefoot for many years, and then I put on shoes to race around the world. Fifty years later I am travelling the world as a nomad with my husband Anadi and I have taken off my shoes and I am running barefoot again….
