In this week’s spotlight I’d like to share the 3 Biggest Lessons About Loving Myself That I Learned from David Deida’s “Dear Lover”. I hope it inspires you to pick up the book and devour it. I interpret the book in two different ways. First from the perspective of the Divine speaking to me as his Beloved. Second as my lover would talk to me as his Beloved. I enjoy the ability to float between both and see them as further proof we are spiritual beings having a human experience.
- You Are Love. Love is Openness. “Dear lover, when I look into your eyes, I feel your heart’s yearning. Nothing is more beautiful to me than your love. I want to drink your love and dive into your heart and take you open to God. But I need to feel you wanting me to enter you. I want to feel you let down your guard in trust, just a little bit, so I can feel your heart’s invitation. Please, open so I may claim your heart.”
- All of Life’s Moments Can Be a Dance of Love’s Emergence. “All the moments of your life – making a business deal, caring for your children, arguing with your lover – can be a dance of love’s emergence, an opportunity for opening your heart and offering your life to flow open as love’s wisdom, love’s power, and love’s indestructible vulnerability. To live with an open heart and body moved by love is your ONLY OPTION if you want to fulfill your deepest desire – to receive and give love’s most full bliss – with our without a man.
- Love is Not a Game for Sissies. “It can take a lot of emotional effort to learn how to open the heart when the experience of life has shut it down. What we thought were merely temporary protective mechanisms can become hardened over the years into entrenched defensive patterns. And we so grieve the ease and the freedom of love.”
I share with you this book because it was instrumental during the period of my life when my hardened heart was being broken wide open. It served as a guidepost for me to use as I found new people to surround myself with as I created my new ‘Super Life’.
