When Love Succeeds
So many of the emails I receive are about another successful person’s program to help the rest of us “succeed, achieve abundance, find prosperity, grow our business, find clients,” and so on. I realized that even the spiritual models for success that I see out there present themselves in terms of helping us to succeed – that is, helping “you” or “me” to succeed.
Now, many of the spiritual models for success do focus on helping others, and even might mention, as one of the best ones I know does, the importance of loving people. However, I have yet to see a program that focuses on anything different than personal success.
I have known for many years that visualizing success in our future is so important for us in order to succeed. In the past, I have often visualized getting jobs, and then I have gotten the job. I believe I practiced a certain degree of non-attachment, but still visualized enjoying getting the job and enjoying performing the job, and then actually got the job. So, I know that works.
My dilemma for the past year-and-a-half or so has been that I am no longer aiming for a job, so what is it that I am to visualize? When I visualize myself succeeding at something, it has never felt quite right.
Also, how is one to visualize succeeding on the path of Self-Realization? How is one to believe that one can actually let go of ego and become one with God, that is, Self-Realized and attaining God-Consciousness?
This past Sunday, April 10, 2016, I finally got the clarity I need. What came to me was, quite simply:
I am to visualize God succeeding in me and through me!
What a difference that makes! This is the same as praying:
May Love Succeed in me and through me!
Wow – what does it mean when Love succeeds? What does that look like, when love succeeds?
For one thing, we would feel no fear. For another, we would no longer fear each other or feel hurt by each other, because love would succeed in replacing fear and hurt. Therefore, there would no longer be anger or misunderstanding, because love seeks understanding.
When Love succeeds, truth prevails. When Love succeeds, justice is achieved. When Love succeeds, all persons are fed, safe, sheltered, healed, and happy. When Love succeeds, all people are set free and are empowered to become who they are meant to be.
When Love succeeds, peace and harmony reign upon the earth. When Love succeeds, the earth is loved, respected, and protected.
If all this is true, and it is, may we all begin to pray for Love’s success! May we all begin to pray that Love (God, who is Love) will succeed in and through us. May we all begin to live each day seeking Love’s Success!
Prayers to help us accomplish Love’s Success:
God, I place myself in your service; please provide for all my needs. How may I serve you, God? How may I love and bless you right here and right now, God? Whom am I asked to serve, to love, and to bless today? How am I called to love and serve and bless others with my life? Thank you, God, for your Infinite, Unconditional Love. May Love succeed in me and through me this day, and every day.
Affirmations to empower us to accomplish Love’s Success:
I AM Love and I AM succeeding in me and through me.
I AM the Presence of Divine Love succeeding in me and through me, now and always.
Love, Light, and Peace,
