Getting Love vs. Being Loving
Welcome - we are glad you came for help!
Many of us grew up believing that getting love from others is what makes up happy, and creates a sense of worth and safety. You might be spending a lot of energy trying to get love, not realizing that everything you do to get love pushes love away.
Grace is a gift of Spirit that comes when we stay open to learning about loving ourselves and others. Grace is the feeling of extraordinary well-being that enters the heart when the heart is truly open. Grace is what we experience when love rather than fear is motivating our thoughts and behavior.
