I simply don’t know any better advice for a joyful and deeply meaningful life, than to love everyone and everything everywhere you go. I strive each and every moment of my life to extend my love beyond where I feel my limits have always been. I love because when I do, I feel wonderful. I am always the beneficiary of what I have decide to feel. In order to do this, I consciously discard any and all conditions that where once needed in order for me to love someone or something. Then I look deeper into myself and I find the love that I desire. I had a friend tell me once, “Tad… I can’t do what you do. I admire it. But I feel too strongly in the other direction with some people. I can’t love some people because of what they do.” I understand this perspective, and I did for a time in my life feel this way too. But today after having so many disappointments with people, places and things, I come to know that if I rely on the world to be kind enough to offer me good reasons to feel love, to feel joy, to love anyone and everything, then I will be waiting my whole life for conditions to be just right for me to be that loving and joyful person that I know that I am.
I know that what I give to my world, I get back and more. As a matter of fact, I am more likely to experience more of what I give than what I see as absent. My feelings are the lenses that I view my world through. So I protect my experience by always endeavoring to offer love. But this means I often have to recenter myself in the midst of chaos. Because my reflex reactions to life sometimes offer something else. But that’s ok, because I am learning so much with every experience and every liberating loving moment I have. In order for me to accomplish my goal of a truly joyful life, then I must focus on love. And a focus on love is really a focus on mastering my true frequency of being. I am love. I am joy. I am so very good.
