LOVE WARRIORS

 

Heart Chakra Manifesto

Heart Chakra Manifesto

I feel passionately that I was put on this planet to spread love in a far reaching way.  In the service of this, LOVE WARRIORS was formed.  It is my calling to unite people to share and to grow together towards a unified vision of a peaceful and inspired cohabitation on our planet.

A Vision Appeared to Me:

You are standing in an outdoor amphitheater with millions of warriors, beneath a sky full of starlight. At the podium, is your heart, all eyes upon it. These warriors are not your friends, nor are they your enemies. They are not your family. They are not your past lovers. They are all different manifestations of you, at various times in your life.

One rises up, “Heart, what would love do now?”
Heart says “Love would go out for pizza.”
“Okay, what would fear do now?”
“Fear would stay in and hide.”

Another rises up, “Heart, what would love do now?”
Heart says, “Love would close this door.”
“What would fear do now?”
“Fear would keep the un-satisfying job.”

Another rises up, “Heart, what would love do now?”
Heart says, “Love would drop everything, fall on the ground in desperate tears and pound upon the earth with raging fists.”
“What would fear do now?”
“Fear would go get a drink.”

Your job as a Love Warrior is simple. Keep your heart at the podium and ask these questions of it continuously. You will do your best to choose love over fear in each situation. Make no mistake, you will get to know your fears as well. You will grab a hold of them in your palm and roll them around it’s crevises until you know every surface, every texture, every apparent fault. You will know these fears like you will know the reflection of your own face in the mighty river of your life.

As Love Warriors we will practice TAOLK’s (Targeted Acts of Loving Kindness.) You are encouraged to practice all of them weekly.

TAOLKS

A TAOLK is a targeted act of loving kindness, similar to a ROAK, a random act of kindness.  I have expanded on the concept of the ROAK, because I felt a desire to see people pursue courage in the face of their fears in a way that hits four key demographics:

  1. Self love act that requires bravery to face a fear.
  2. Close personal relationship act that also requires bravery to face a fear.
  3. An act of kindness toward someone that you don’t know personally that requires bravery to face a fear.
  4. An act of love that grounds and connects you with the earth.

By practicing these TAOLKs, I believe that we can bring about massive positive change in our personal lives and on our planet.

About the TAOLKs:

TAOLK1

TAOLK 1: Loving ourselves is the one of the greatest acts of bravery we can commit because it allows us to live truthful lives, and to love other people more deeply. Your capacity for honesty with yourself will allow you to love others in an extraordinary way.

I call upon you to love yourself enough to face something you are afraid of.  We all have the capacity to help each other face the most dark and difficult parts of our existence; to help each other find the light of the sleeping stars. If you can see yourself clearly, and love your flaws as well as your virtues, you will begin to see how beautiful you are. That capacity to see beauty in imperfection is the secret to cherishing yourself and other people.

Please pick an act of self love that requires bravery. Whether that is respecting your own boundaries more, speaking out against something that feels wrong to you, letting yourself do something that calls to you or something else entirely.  Do this act, and tell us about it.

TAOLK2

TAOLK 2: This second TAOLK follows on from the first, in that it also requires bravery and kindness to yourself.

If you had to spend a day speaking only white hot truth, how differently would you interact with some of the people who matter in your life?

What words, bold or lovely, would you be able to finally let yourself say?

One of the greatest gifts you can offer to us is your white hot truths. The ones that sing into the space they’re left in, and make you realize something important either about yourself or this world. In order for people to really know you, it is important to be able to sometimes say exactly what it is you need to. Rather than hiding yourself away like a secret. There are also actions we don’t let ourselves do, that could either empower us or tell someone else where it is we stand.

Commit an act of bravery in a close relationship. Allow yourself the absolute honesty to say or do something that feels right to you.

Your life is so precious and so worth fighting for.  I invite you to join me in sharing your truths.

TAOLK3

TAOLK 3: The kindness of strangers is a powerfully important thing. It can make us feel less alone to receive that kindness and giving it can make us understand just how much of an impact we have on everyone we encounter.

We can create a wave of love, a wave that each of us can ride in order to reach someone else. Love is like a tide. We give it out, it comes rolling back in. When it comes back in, we want to give it back out again and so on, until the whole sea surrounding us is only love.

Your third TAOLK is to be kind to a stranger, and to face a fear and be brave in order to do so.  Please let your imagination guide your tide and let me know how it went!

TAOLK4

TAOLK 4: Love is almost a physical thing. It expands and it grows and the more it does this, the more it can do this. No one ever ran out of room in their heart for love.

This Earth deserves our love as well. For its constantness and its beauty. For its strength and its fragility, and mainly for the life that it gives us.

So much of what I paint is about the magic of this universe. It is an invitation for us to become part of everything again.  Recognizing we need to maintain our connection with nature is an important step.  In a busy world, disconnecting is easy and often inevitable.

We need to stay connected with our sacred planet and to plant our roots regularly.  Your fourth TAOLK is an act of love that will ground and connect you with the earth. Do something beautiful that reminds the grass and the sky who you are.
