In Praise of Centrism: The Politics of the Heart

sacred-345By Steve Beckow, Golden Age of Gaia

If I were to hold to any “ism,” I’d want to revive centrism in politics.

I think it got a bad press many decades ago and being mild in temperament yielded place. But I think we need to welcome it back to the table.

It’s possible that I’m alive to this issue because, in Canada, we have a well-developed centrist political tradition. Continue reading In Praise of Centrism: The Politics of the Heart


This Is What Happens To Your Brain When You Fall In Love

By Deepak Chopra, via Body Mind Soul Spirit

The human brain is an exquisitely sensitive instrument. It registers the slightest nuance of any experience you have ever had. This is no more evident than in love. Imagine someone whispering, “I love you.” In romantic terms these are desirable words – probably the most desirable any of us will ever hear. The brain responds to ‘I love you” with an orchestration of positive reactions. People who are in love feel less stressed; their blood pressure goes down. When a couple who enjoys a long-term loving marriage hold hands, even their response to physical pain is strengthened. Continue reading This Is What Happens To Your Brain When You Fall In Love

What I Want

By Wes Annac, Editor, Openhearted Rebel

I wrote the following for the 253rd issue of the Weekly Awareness Guide, a written document distributed weekly via email that I offer for $11.11 a month.

Income from the guide helps me get by and ensures I can continue to offer free content, and every subscription is appreciated. The option to subscribe is given at the bottom of this post (learn about subscribing with cash/check here).

What I want is simple.

I want the world to live in peace; not die in war. I want to see people treat each other as equals; not hate and kill each other over something as silly as religious or political differences. I want us to treat each other as one human race; not multiple races in perpetual conflict over what divides us.

I want to help people understand what love really is; not the romantic notions we’ve come to associate with love, but true love. This is love for all mankind, and with it comes the understanding that we are one race. We can thrive together or fall together. Continue reading What I Want

Why You Should Never Give Up On Love

By Luminita D. Saviuc, Purpose Fairy

“To those who have given up on love: I say, “Trust life a little bit.” ~ Maya Angelou

You know what I really love? LOVE! I love LOVE!

The way I see it, there ain’t no bigger and more powerful force in the whole universe than LOVE itself.

Love makes the world go round. It’s the glue that hold everything together. Love is what we are made of. We are made of love and made to love. Our true nature is love and by trying to move away from love, by saying that we want to give up on love, we slowly but surely move away from who we truly are. We move away from our true nature, drifting away and feeling more and more disoriented, disconnected and confused. Continue reading Why You Should Never Give Up On Love

Love is My God

By Steve Beckow, Golden Age of Gaia

Love is my God.
There is no God that is not love.

If “God” were to say something
That was not of love,
That would not be God for me.

Love is everything.
Therefore, you must be love.
I must be love.

God is everything.
Therefore, you must be God.
I must be God.

God is eternal.
Therefore you, I, and everything,
In one form or another,
Must be eternal.

What’s to fear?

Learning about Love

self-love-33By Steve Beckow, Golden Age of Gaia

I’m learning a lot about sacred love that I’d like to share. Some lessons are expansions; others, discoveries.

First of all, at my level of everyday consciousness, whatever it may be, sacred love comes and goes.

As much as I’d like it to stay, it decides when it wishes to appear, despite our wishes and will. Continue reading Learning about Love

Sending Love Out to the World

By Steve Beckow, Golden Age of Gaia

I’m sitting in a store waiting for a friend to make some purchases and swimming in love and bliss.

With the mind chatter gone, I feel malleable, fluid. There’s no resistance any more to my moods and feelings, which freely rise and fall.

I need to manage myself however. Continue reading Sending Love Out to the World

Love is My New Addiction

By Steve Beckow, Golden Age of Gaia

In a personal reading through Linda in 2014, Archangel Michael and I had this exchange:

Archangel Michael: This is your new addiction.

Steve Beckow: Addicted to love?

AAM: Yes.  (1)

And it’s true. I’m addicted to love, addicted to bliss, addicted to joy.

Anyone would be who really tasted the true character of what the Divine Mother called “sacred” or Fifth-Dimensional love. (2) Continue reading Love is My New Addiction

Understanding The Language of the Heart: The Original Language

via Giovanni Bartolomeo, Collective Evolution

The following article was written by one of my first spiritual teachers. At a time in my life when I needed some direction, I really reached out and set the intention. I was lost and needed guidance, and just as the old saying goes, when the student is ready the teacher will appear. Daniel travels the world teaching meditation techniques and practices (along with a lot of other cool stuff as well). We sat down for an interview and he also shared this important article he wrote: Continue reading Understanding The Language of the Heart: The Original Language

The Dynamics of Longing, Resistance and Love

By Ethel Kings, Wake Up World

Rumi says: “Your task is not to seek love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”  This article is about how I have come to understand these words.

Every now and then I drop into a deep dark pit hole of complete aloneness – a portal into My Personal Hell – where it feels like there is no love for me in this universe. It actually feels like there is no love whatsoever in this universe – no one loves anyone. Universe seems to be nothing but cold, indifferent, heartless machinery.

My soul longs to connect deeply with a warm, living, feeling human being to be delivered from this isolation. It feels much like Christopher Poindexter put it: “And in the end, we were all just humans… drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness.” Connecting in authentic, open-hearted way soothes this longing. Each time that deep connection happens, the heartless, indifferent, unloving universe that I dread, loses its grip on me. Continue reading The Dynamics of Longing, Resistance and Love
