Non-Attachment and Beyond: Embodying Love

Starting from the daily practice recommended in the previous entry, affirming that we love Godde more than anyone or anything else, we begin each day with non-attachment.

But then, let us ask this question:  Who is this Godde to whom we are so devoted?  One short answer is unconditional Love.  Another resonant answer is:  the wise, conscious energy of Love, which permeates the Universe.  Another answer is:  The Wisdom of Love, which is the most powerful, creative energy in this Universe.  Or again, a loving energy consciousness which exists in everything.

Once we realize that Love permeates our Being, as well as the Be-ing of everyone and everything else, then we become aware that we are potentially the embodiment and the fulfillment of Love.  We can become Love.

In the teachings of Jesus Christ, embodying love for others is a primary principle.  Christ himself has been understood to be the Incarnation of God, but we can all be that, and at times, we are that.  I use the term embodiment rather than incarnation, but I mean essentially the same thing:  bringing Divine Love and Wisdom for ourselves and others through our words, our thoughts, our actions, and yes, our bodies.  Why not become an Incarnation or Embodiment of Love?

The only way we can do that is by balancing non-attachment with actively embodying Love.  Both together bring a sacred balance into this world.  Non-attachment without embodied Love either draws us completely out of this world, which is important at certain points on our spiritual path, or leaves us cold and calloused towards this world and all the suffering therein.  Embodying Love without non-attachment leads to conditional Love, which is destructive rather than healing.

Balancing non-attachment with the embodiment of Love brings healing and wholeness; this is the path I seek, for myself, and for others.  Our ability to bring healing and wholeness to others depends on several factors.  First, we need to practice non-attachment.  Second, we need to feel loved and whole ourselves, fully loving ourselves so that we can love others.  Third, we need to practice devotional disciplines which raise our energies up to a purer, more powerfully healing vibration that resonates with Divine, Unconditional Love, so that this Divine Love will pour to us and through us for others.  Fourth, we need to hold the intention to bring healing and wholeness to others, because energy follows intention.

When we connect with others, however, the desire for attachment tends to arise.  Rather than staying coolly detached in a way that is hurtful and lacking in love, we always need to hold love for others, aware of what is loving for them, as well as what is loving for us.

Embodying Love never means that we become a doormat.  If the love someone is offering us in return is hurtful to us in some way, Love asks us to speak up if we need to in order to become who we are meant to be and to do what we are meant to do.  Yet Love always asks us to hold the other person in love, because they would not be engaging in choices that hurt us unless they themselves are hurting or afraid.

Fear is the opposite of love, so the note below about making sure that we do not remain attached to fear is a necessary step in our consciousness, so that we can more fully embody Love.

Together, non-attachment and Love create a wisdom from our Higher Selves that can guide us through much of life.  May you be filled with that Wisdom and Love today and always.

Love and Light,

About selfrealizationtherapy

I am a healer, life coach, author, and spiritual teacher. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, WhatsApp, or Facetime; please email me at: to schedule a session. My goal is to assist you in connecting with your Higher Self to find fulfillment, peace, health, and happiness in life. I typically work with people for about six weeks, and then they either take classes with me and advance more, or simply go their happy way. While I cannot guarantee results, many clients find that in a few short weeks, more is accomplished than could be with years of traditional talk therapy. Born on the equator in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I grew up moving back-and-forth between Africa and the United States my whole childhood and youth. We lived in three different countries in Africa, and three different states in the USA. I now live in Maryland, close to Washington, DC. I was widowed at the age of 28 when my 34-year-old husband died suddenly of a cerebral aneurysm that hemorrhaged, leaving me with an infant and a toddler. This crisis led me to believe that God loves us even when "bad" things happen, and also led me to pursue spirituality and become a minister. In 1996, thanks to "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramhansa Yogananda, and a meditation class called Raja Yoga, I started on an Eastern spiritual path, a journey which included becoming a healer and a mystic. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, I perceive a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies. As a result, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way (a term used in the book of Acts by very early "Christians," although they did not call themselves "Christians;" they called themselves Followers of the Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness or Christ-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
