Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

“The first duty of love is to listen.”
– Paul Tillich

Recall for a moment the last time you felt you were really heard.  What a gift it is when someone listens to you from the heart with focus attention, without any interruptions. When we can be fully present to another, the connection is increased and love is deepened. One of the richest gifts we have to offer another is our undivided attention with a compassionate presence.  This practice has the power to transform relationships.  Listen…and you will be heard.

“Awareness creates your reality,” is an oft quoted axiom.  Awareness consists of two parts, intention and attention.  In a past television show, Dr. Michael Beckworth remarked that we suffer from an “intentional disorder.”  Rather than let the world determine our intentions, Dr. Beckworth invites us to establish our own intentions.  For example, “Today, I am available to more good then I have ever experienced” or “I am open to happiness, success and love as I journey through this day.”  He goes on to say, “Don’t be a self-fulfilling prophet of negativity.  Establish your own intentions and watch how that energy moves you in that direction.”  The result will be you can live your life better than you can image. 

Attention is also important.  Whenever you give focused attention to something it grows.  If you give focused atention to your children, they will do well. If you give focused attention to your business, it grows.  If you give focused attention to your plants, they blossom.  And, of course, if you give focused attention to your relationship, it thrives.  

One way to increase your attention is to daily play what we like to call the “A Game.”  It involves using your eyes, your mouth and your touch.  Throughout the day give caring Attention with your eyes.  Express Appreciation and Acceptance with your words.  Give hugs and show Affection with your touch.  Playing the “A Game” makes you more conscious of giving Attention, Appreciation, Acceptance and Affection.  Have fun!
