Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we have learned here. The spiritual journey is the relinquishment, or unlearning of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts. Love is the essential existential fact. It is our ultimate reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life.

All you need is love...
Love is all there is. 

So it appears that all we need to do is find our way back to love, that should be easy enough, don't you think? It really is... everything else in life is just details. We get all wrapped up in nonsense. Some little thing happens and throws us completely off, we forget all about love. There is too much stress, too much pressure, we are like a volcano, we could erupt at any time. And this is exactly what will happen, if we don't find some way to relieve the pressure. 

You must have an outlet... get back to nature, do yoga, meditate, sports, or simply play; these are the common stress relievers. They all work and make you feel good until you jump right back into the fray. 

To keep a constant handle on stress relief takes dedication and a desire to make your own life easier/calmer. Physical activity is beneficial to blow off steam, but calming your mind and allowing the love and joy to rise from within, will have a more lasting effect. 

Love is within all of us, and it's only a matter of accessing it. Find a quiet time every day, hug yourself, wrap yourself in love. When you manifest love for yourself, it will spill over on all those around you. Don't worry about what the rest of them are feeling, when you ARE love, it will get around...
