DAILY LOVE TIP – Friday July 1, 2011

walk the ♥Heart Path......

“Look at every path closely and deliberately.
Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself and yourself alone one question. This question is one that a very old man asks…Does this
path have a heart? If it does, the path is good. If it doesn’t it is of no use.”
~Carlos Castaneda

I found this quote the other day (Thank you new friend Noah!) and I was sooooo delighted. What a signature piece for me and my teachings. Walking and teaching the HEART PATH is my life’s work and play. How can I more deeply LOVE today is the most important question of every day for me…both others and myself. I invite YOU to make this choice as well.

Question for you: Are you interested too and willing to join me? What do you need if this isn’t true for you?

Today is also auspicious as it is the beginning of our new financial year in Australia. In my
opinion investing in LOVE-ing is the highest investment any of us can make as being
‘rich’ in all other areas of life – including profession/occupation, income, assets, health, etc…. doesn’t have as much meaning as it does when you have a solid foundation in feeling LOVE-ing, LOVE-d and LOVE-able. As Castaneda so elegantly puts it – “…..Does this path
have a heart? If it does, the path is good. If it doesn’t it is of no use.”

Doing the 30 DAY BEING-LOVE CAMPAIGN has opened even more doors than I expected. Both for me doing my project as well as what I have heard from the sharing from others. I suppose that old saying – whatever you focus on grows – has been working.

What is the next step? We have so enjoyed the success of the 30 DAY BEING-LOVE CAMPAIGN that we have decided to do it again August 1-30th. That gives those who started late to finish their first 30 DAYS as well as it gives us time for REFLECTION, REFINING and REVISION. What did we learn from it, what worked, what didn’t, what was missing that needs adding? Those are the immediate questions that come to mind. Any other questions that you suggest are important to ask please add them in the Comments below.

In the 30 DAY BEING-LOVE CAMPAIGN for August 1-30th you can focus on growing any aspect of your LOVE-ing such as –

the 3G’s – being Grateful, Generous, Gracious;

any of the 8A’sAcknowledging, Accepting, Adoring, Admiring, Advocating for, Affirming, giving Affection, paying Attention;

or other qualities such as Compassion, Respect, Patience, Tenderness….in fact any quality you want to pay attention to growing in you and building as a Habit.

New habit

We suggest you choose one for the whole month as a focus as in our experience you will get a better outcome.

My guess is that people will already have an inkling of who they want to focus their LOVE-ing on next. One way you might like to choose is to think of all the people that come to mind and to put their names on separate slips of paper and put them into a hat or a bowl and choose without looking. Leave it to mystery. It is actually a great way to choose which aspect of LOVE-ing is important for you to focus on for that person as well.

We will be advising on the blog and on our INSTITUTE FOR RELATIONSHIP DEVELOPMENT Facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/InstRelDev on July 15th
where we want you to post your intentions. Also for those who have participated
in the 30 DAY BEING-LOVE CAMPAIGN I will post an evaluation.

Enjoy the gifts of July whether it is winter as here in the south or summer in the north, LOVE Susie ♥♥
