call has come. We are living in a time of tremendous change, change
that often feels overwhelming, even frightening. Our security — physical
and financial — is being threatened like never before. Faced with so
much instability, many of us have begun to look on the future with
dread, to feel our experience and ability are no match for the forces of
change. Yet in the midst of this uncertainty, we are being called to
something greater. We are being given the opportunity to tap into the
power of love within ourselves, rather than give ourselves over to
circumstances beyond our control.
Releasing this dynamic power of
love begins when we choose and speak words for loving our age, loving
our work, and loving our life. Accessing and understanding this power
expands our vision beyond what we have known, experienced, or believed
to be possible. The dreams of the past are no longer viable. There is no
The power of love is your foundation for change.
Without love, you have no vision. Without love you have no inspiration.
When your primary focus is survival, you limit your possibilities. You
put yourself in a box. But when you love your age, love your work, and
love your life, you step out of the box, stand up for your Self, and
create new ways of responding to changing conditions and challenges. The
power of love is the will to choose a new path. The power of love is
the heart that ignites your passion. The power of love is the wisdom to
redefine your age, your work, and your life.
So what does it look like to love your age, your work and your life?
your age means recognizing that age is a state of consciousness, not a
number. Age is simply a reflection of how you choose to think and act in
the world. It means looking at major birthdays—the “big 0” birthdays—as
starting points, rather than destinations, as moments to set your
intentions to become proactive with your life and expand your vision. To
love your age is to know that nothing can limit your heart’s capacity
to give and receive love, or your openness to change. It is knowing
that, from birth to death, you are free to express your unique talents
and gifts. It is knowing that you are never too young or too old to be
about the business of knowing who you are and why you’re here. As tennis
star Martina Navratilova once said in an interview at the U.S. Tennis
Open, “Age is overrated.”
Loving your work means expressing your
spirit— what are uniquely your gifts and talents, your spark. It means
being fully aware that the essence of who you are and the work you feel
called to do are one.
When you love your work, you are clear
about how your creative spirit is best expressed. You may be focused on a
job, actively engaged in learning the principles of security, autonomy,
and accountability. Or you may be setting long-term goals for a career,
your sights set on experiencing fame, success and financial prosperity.
Or you may already have mastered the principles of manifesting what you
want and now are ready to give back your passion and joy. Loving your
work means being fully engaged in whatever you are doing, flowing and
glowing with anticipation and excitement. It means continually expanding
the frontiers of learning, keeping mindful of nurturing yourself, and
responding to the genuine needs of others. Loving your work means being
turned on by what you do, enjoying the process of how you do it, and
relishing in what you are able to accomplish and achieve.
your life means choosing to be the choice‑maker, the creator of your
life. Instead of giving your power away— of having others give you your
“lines,” write your script— you have the confidence to be the producer,
director, and author of your own script. You fashion your role and
choose the cast of characters. Every day is an opportunity to step on
your movie set and direct the next scene. You take responsibility for
the script, your performance, and the outcome. Loving your life means
entering a field of unlimited possibilities, far beyond the limitations
of your past beliefs and conditioning. Secure in this knowledge, you
possess the map. You are able to draw to yourself the people and
resources which support and empower your path. You have the faith that
whatever you conceive, you can create, and you love your creation.
