To love ourselves

The central highland in Iceland - Rout 208

We crave for love and affection.  From our parents, relatives, and friends, from everywhere.  All our being is about the love and care we need and miss, and little else.  And if we do not have the love of others, then our existence is all about the love that we desire but do not get.

And we always seek it outside ourselves.  We give others little help here and there, take care of children for friends and relatives and visit the sick.  We are so loving, so caring and good and in return we get recognition, positive strokes.  A small light to warm us.  That is all.
We harvest only a small light which tickles our vanity for a while, but gives no true warmth.  And that which tickles our vanity is not real love or caring.  Why is it so difficult to find real love?

The force of us all

jólatré
All Icelanders know that Christmas starts at six o’clock on Christmas Eve, then ring the church bells in Christmas, people sit at the table and Christmas has begun.  And just at that moment hovers the spirit of joy and peace over the country.

We see this as quite natural, since this has always been so, and although we are in a position to not hear the church bells or sit at the table we know anyway, wherever in the world we are, when the clock strikes six on Christmas Eve, then Christmas has begun.

And at that moment unite the minds of Icelanders into one, thereby creating a strong collective awareness of peace on earth, so all over us and in our hearts will be happiness and warmth.

We know all this because we’ve all experienced it, from the very beginning of our lives, but perhaps not everyone knows how strong energy arises precisely at this moment, force of joy and peace, the energy of all of us, united in one.  It is a strong force and good.

And now that we know it, we should remember it, when a lot is going on in the nation and many things to take care of and fix, especially for those disadvantaged.  The united awareness of all of us, of joy and peace is not just to save, not just to be used on special days, or this one day of the year, but can be raised anywhere and anytime.

So when any part of the population is in need of all the others, then we should unite in one place, in body and spirit, ring within us the church bells, find the peace in our hearts and unite it with and for all.

But this also applies to all the inhabitants of the earth, all mankind, so when any part of the world is in need of all the others, we should unite into one, the whole world, in body and spirit, at the exact moment, ring within us the church bells, find peace within our hearts and unite it with and for all the world.  That is love.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Love

... clouds in the sky ...

… clouds in the sky …

We can never know love, know how it is or define it.  Love can only be in nothing.

Once we have denied the world, not that we have given the name the world, but our own little worlds, the ones we live in, the family that we consider ourselves bound by, friends, parenting, careers, importance, hope, guilt, obedience, all our ideas and assets, when there is nothing left and everything is gone, whether we give it the name good or bad, also our desire and search for love, then out of nowhere comes love.

Love thy neighbor

GooseWe are brought up in the belief that we should love and respect our neighbor.  We hear this all over the community, in schools and churches, in books and movies, wherever we look, we hear the message; the words; “love thy neighbor.”  And thus it should be; we should care for each other, and not only in words but also in practice.  But do we, love and care for each other? Can we truly say that we are interested in and have concerned for other people?  Their lives and well-being and indeed any other that belong to them?  Do we really care about someone, or maybe no one?

This is the topic in chapter 21 in the book “What am I?”

Love

loveLove is a remarkable word that stands for even more remarkable phenomenon.
There are many different words in the Icelandic languish to express love, depending on whom and what we are expressing.
If I wanted to express love for God I would use the word kærleikur, which has a deeper meaning than ordinary love.  If it was love for my husband I wanted to express I would use the word ást and ástfangin, which means love and being caught in love, in ást there would be more hormone activity than in the other words.  For my children I would say elska, because I elska them, I would not use the word everywhere and at every occasion, telling them I love them would be somewhat a sacred moment.  I could also use the word elska to my friends.
But if I wanted to express my admiration for shoos I would just say they were flott, meaning they are great or beautiful. Continue reading

Love and caring

sugarShe called me, she was my friend and we often called each other and talked about all kinds of things and all of life matters over a cop of coffee. Somehow our talk led to me telling her about a dream I had many years ago, in the period when I, in my dreams, was traveling through my dreams, learning their meaning.  I had been going through my past,  falling from one dream to another all night and learning what they were telling me with the help of my dream friend.  Amongst other I learned that I use my children, see them in various ages, when I have some issues to solve from my past. Then suddenly I felt a change in my dreams, found myself walking pass two men laying something on the ground, it was a thread they were laying in lines, in all directions, out and south. It did not look like  nything, made no sense to me, but still it was some kind of path, totally bewildering path. Continue reading
