The Mastery of Love

The Mastery of Love

While writing, reading and rewriting The Law of Creation I have come to realize some things. I believe I inherently know all this information. Everything rang true to me, and while it was very interesting and profound, I feel as if I already knew it. I think this is because it is inherent in all of us, but it is not our instinct, which is why we don’t live our lives according to these Laws. We live our lives trying to protect ourselves. Protect ourselves from pain. Everything we do is for us to feel good, and not get hurt. Well, I can tell you that there is a way to not feel pain, to not hurt! When you are feeling pain, anger, hurt, sadness or any one of the other fear-based emotions we suffer from, know that you are out of alignment with love. Be excited that the emotion you are feeling is guiding you to feel better. Thank it and feel better.

You see, when you are vibrating with love and gratitude, it is impossible to feel anything other than good! There is always a different perspective than your current reality. Find a different perspective and your world changes. How you perceive everything is up to you. You can live any reality you want and living a loving grateful reality is all it takes to be permanently happy. It is impossible for pain and hurt to reside in the same space as love and gratitude at the same time. Impossible.

Don Miguel Ruiz in The Mastery of Love explains that “Mastering a relationship is all about YOU. The first step is to become aware, to know that everyone dreams his own dream.” What he refers to here is the same as what books like The Disappearance of the Universe by Gary Renard and the script A Course in Miracles refer to – this reality is not real, we have created it by virtue of what we think and believe and is therefore likened to a dream, and each person’s dream is unique to themselves. No one’s dream can be exactly like our own. He further explains that once you know this you can then be completely responsible for your own half of the relationship, which is you. “If you know that you are only responsible for half of the relationship, you can easily control your half. It is not up to us to control the other half. If we respect [the other half] we know that our partner, or friend, or son, or mother, is completely responsible for his or her own half of the relationship. If we respect the other half, there is always going to be peace in that relationship. There is no war.”

When you know the difference between fear and love, you are able to become love. When you live love, you become clear in your communication. You begin to communicate your dream in a loving manner and everything around you responds accordingly. You are complete love. Nothing to protect. Nothing to worry about. Nothing to stress about. Just pure love. You begin to see the beauty around you. The beauty in everything. If you don’t see beauty (which is another form of love) in your enemy, then you are not vibrating with love. I’m going out on a limb here and using politics as an example as I think everyone can relate. If you do not see beauty in Donald Trump, then you are not vibrating with love. If you do not see beauty in Nancy Pelosi you are not vibrating with love. You see, if you are love, then you see the beauty in everything, because your love does not depend on the object of your love, your love is dependent on your state of being. So, whether the person or situation becomes different, or a friend turns to foe, does not matter, because your love is not dependent on anything around you, anything outside of you. Your love is a state of being. You simply love!

I really recommend the book The Mastery of Love by Don Miguel Ruiz. I had the book on my shelf for many years before reading it. It came to me when the time was right. It literally jumped off the shelf into my hands and once I started reading it, could not put it down. It was the catalyst to my fully understanding the statements: There is only love and fear. Everything we do is either motivated by love or it is motivated by fear. There is nothing else.
