heartinsandOf all of the creative questions we will — and must — ponder in our lives, this is the core. We must first surrender whatever answers we have to deserving (or not deserving) love. We ALL have old stories. We all have memories and relationships that were not loving enough. It is simply part of life. This is not to teach us that we are unworthy — rather, it is to teach us that LOVE, itself, exists. It is not dependent on another person’s ability to share or offer — or BLOCK it.

So stop today and ask yourself the CREATIVE question, “Why do I deserve love?”  Unlike an affirmation about being deserving, which you may or may not believe, this CREATIVE question will empower your mind to respond. And although you may have some negative responses at first, if you practice the CREATIVE QUESTIONS process and simply let those answers float away, released, you WILL find other answers. Deeper answers. Universal answers.

You see, there IS love out there. It exists all on its own. We do not will it — although we can will it away. We do not create it, but we can UNcreate it in ourselves. What we CAN do is PARTICIPATE in love. So when you ALLOW the creative question, “Do I deserve love?” Be sure that you hang in there for love to FLOOD THROUGH YOU. Because love is huge. It is the ALL. It is the ancient truth that surpasses all else.

So do you DESERVE love? My friend, trust me, you ARE love.
