ELIZA'S CROSS CANADA LOVE TOUR
Feel The Love
In times of tragedy, gifts will appear. They may be small like a card or a casserole. They may be large, like a place to stay or a plane ticket. They may be difficult to see through darkness, and you may deny that they are there at all, but they will be there.
Accept all the gifts with joy.
Let yourself feel the love.
Let yourself be loved.
If a gift is impractical or unneeded, share with the giver what you do need.
If you do not know what you need, that is okay, but find a way to accept the love.
The help being offered may not suit you, but you can always accept the love.
When you are lost and your heart is broken, there will be gifts of light and kind words.
When you are grieving and you soul is heavy, there will be gifts of strong people to help shoulder the burden.
The gifts may not come all at once, they may trickle in slowly over time, but if you pay attention they will be there.
The gifts and the angels are everywhere. Look for them.
Do not treat them as a consolation prize for your pain, receive them as if they were born of no sorrow.
If you are afraid you are taking to much, or you do not feel worthy, remember that greeting the givers and receiving their bounty is also an act of giving.
If giving is a gift to yourself,
receiving is a gift to the giver.
Receiving with love is how to give when you have nothing left.
The more we turn away good things the more we teach people not to offer. Even worse, we teach people that their offerings are not enough. We teach them that their love has no worth to us. Let the love from others hold worth to you, and you will let others feel their love is worthy.
Heal by accepting.
Give by receiving.
Allow yourself to fill up on love, to become so full of love that it will begin to overflow, showering back onto all the givers. So full of love, that through accepting help, you have once again become one of the givers yourself.
Through accepting the gifts that tragedy brings you, you can become the angel you needed.
