Dear ones, many of you live your lives like a boxer. But your fight is within, although many of you believe it is out there. When you wake in the morning is when the fighting begins. Your first punch is what you seem to be missing in your life, as though anyone can take away love from you. The second punch comes from life itself, as you begin to point out in your mind your competitors. The competitors you have been fighting with have been with you for most of your lives. The ones who have wronged you or you have wronged. They just have new faces and bodies. Your arrogance is your biggest enemy. You believe that the world is against you, and yet you are against yourself. So you build defenses like a boxer. You become good a jabbing, dodging, winning , and making others feel the loss. You taunt them, put them down, knock them out, abuse them with your selfish acts, and act tough. Until one day, your job knocks you out, a relationship betrays you, you cheat on another and believe that you have gotten away. But dear ones, I ask you, “How can you ever run from love or even fight it?” And yet you do. You have fought a good fight. Now most of you are tired, some of you can’t pick your arms up to defend yourself, the rounds seem long, and you are finally exhausted from fighting it all. You missed the point of it all. Love does not fight. Love doesn’t control. Love doesn’t need anything. Love goes with the flow. Love knows another as itself. Love has nothing to hide. For again all will be revealed in time. Love is patient. Love is impeccable with its word. Some of you will continue to fight, and some of you that can hear this message have finally understood. Put down your hands, open up your fists, and breath. You are safe now and you have always been. Let love, let love, let love., let love be. LET LOVE BE. The days of fighting are over. Every fight you have is with yourself. What are you fighting? What or who is attacking you? The war is within, and now your peace must be with both sides. One is real and the other is a wonderful actor. You choose. LET LOVE BE.
