More Love, Not Less

In Whatever Arises, Love That, by Matt Kahn, the author challenges us to accept more love.

He writes:  “When I’m sad, I deserve more love, not less.  When I’m angry, I deserve more love, not less.  When I’m frustrated, I deserve more love, not less.  Whenever I’m hurt, heartbroken, ashamed or feeling guilty, I deserve more love, not less….” (p. 6).

The rule of more love and not less applies everywhere.

In this series of meditations on worthiness, you may be called to glance at your perceptions of unworthiness.  You may uncover inner darkness or things you don’t want to see.   You may be tempted to lament your alleged shortcomings.

But the reason for doing this work is always to accept more love, not less.

Don’t let your ego talk you into believing otherwise!

The ego is helpful for certain things –linear thinking, sorting, parallel parking.   The ego is flummoxed by paradox.  Mystical self-worth is born out of paradox.

There are seven recurrent paradoxes in this series:

  • The holy and unholy are aspects of One Whole Reality
  • Grace is given, not earned
  • Self-improvement arises from self-acceptance
  • Humility is our source of greatness
  • To possess worth we give away what is worthy
  • Empowering others empowers the self
  • We are serious about our joy

The overriding and abiding paradox for the “magnificent seven” listed above, is the willingness to accept more love, not less, in all things.  In this work, in all of your reactions, your emotions, your discoveries – your primary job is to find and accept more love, not less.

Throughout the day, affirm, “I am willing to accept more love, not less;” then check your willingness by asking:

Am I really willing to accept more love, not less, no matter what?
