The Balance Of True Love?

We all know that we can never truly appreciate something unless we have worked at it. Sometimes worked very hard to create or achieve something. We know that when we have suffered a hard time, be it a relationship or a time in our lives…it gives us a full appreciation of the good times when they do come. But if we only ever knew one side of those journeys we would have nothing to compare our experiences with.

One day Spirit spoke to me and said…’If you would wish a better world and take away all those hard experiences would we really have a more beautiful world? Then I will give you a difficult thing to understand but it is a future with none of those hard experiences.’…Spirit then said…’I want you to imagine a generation that are used to everything being good in their lives, nothing going wrong and obtaining everything they have ever asked for…and begin to expect it like a spoiled child. You know the one’s you meet that are utterly spoiled by this, have everything their own way and demanding it be given them because they would not know any other way. Those who do some of the most selfish things you have ever seen. No empathy, no compassion…and love…they would never know its true meaning but a shallow, self centered image of their own. Simply because they cannot ‘see’ another way, don’t understand and appreciate what they do have and how they would be if they lost it. That would be your future. If you think this world is hard now, imagine it full of that. A balance would be lost…in us all’.

So my friends, some do go through the above but they are tempered by those around them. Can see that there is indeed many other ways, many paths to try. And yes this world can indeed throw us into some very hard and painful places…but in doing so we find us, appreciate us, and finally see through those many conditions we have lived through. All of those experiences are making us, developing us, and giving a true understanding of what we really are within so that we can see and appreciate what unconditional love truly is when we meet it. There is indeed a balance to everything, and yes it can swing sometimes too far. But like everything else in this world it will attract that balance by its love or lack thereof. Love wants that balance…love is that balance. So yes, it does ask you to go through some tough paths, but it wants you to find it, feel it, be it.

And through that hard work it is waiting within it, cheering you on like nothing else you could even compare it to. And when you finally see it, I swear in all that I am, you will never not appreciate the path you have taken…not one step will you doubt or deny…because in that love you will finally see it in all its glory, understand exactly what you have done to achieve and appreciate this very moment…and in doing so, finally love the one person you had doubted, thinking you were not lovable, not good enough or not a million other things…because you will see that you needed to doubt, needed to believe you weren’t good enough…so that when you finally saw that it was this exact journey which would give you an appreciation of you and just what you have now achieved because of it. Love wanted you to find it and you can’t be just ‘given it’…or you too would be spoiled and not appreciate its beauty. But in going through what you have, you have created something beyond words. A masterpiece that has taken much time and effort, something that in its beauty will attract many from afar. And they will all ask ‘how did you do this?’, to which you will reply…’I just had hope and faith and listened to my heart, the best that I could!’. And they will ask, why don’t I give them a straight answer of what they need to do? Because they then would not appreciate what it has taken you to find yours…as they must do to find theirs. Each a unique path, just as love is ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

      Actually Carol, Spirit asked me to wander over to your blog not 15 minutes ago 🀣 Hows that for a synchronicity? Great minds think alike. And thank you for your beautiful comment, I hope it did give you a lift as I write to share what Spirit has shared with me…love…and lots of it within us trying to be found. And we do, slowly, and probably with a struggle or two so that when we do feel all that pain and sadness, only then can we really appreciate the beauty of happiness and love. You are doing well, be proud of it. Thank you for your sharing kind lady, and keep to your path, it has been given with great love for you to find you, and it may take a while, but you will. And at the end when you ‘see’ that love within you, you will ‘know’ that it has indeed been given with a great love to eventually set you free. Unconditionally free πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  2. Years ago I was shocked when someone told me that we need the balance of light and dark in our lives. I wished for peace for everyone, for there to be goodness and happiness for all.

    After I went through the process of my own healing, I learned the huge lesson that this is something we each need to do for ourselves and no one can do it for us or give it to us.

    We each need to find the path which is the most meaningful because that is what will work.

    Right now in the world there’s a bunch of people who are looking for someone else to make their lives better. They are angry at the government. They’re angry at anyone else they can blame.

    While we can’t change the whole world, we each can help a few people, and they in turn will hopefully help more people.

    Like you said, love enters our lives when we heal. We learn to love ourselves for the first time and this helps us love others.

    I love your post! Such wisdom you share!

    • Mark Lanesbury

      It all takes much time and hardship, but that is needed so that we will appreciate exactly what we have endured and experienced so that we will find that balance that love is. Find that no longer ‘needing’ anything from a unbalanced state of being because we have found that it all isn’t a part of truly who we are…but a path to that answer.
      We ever look ‘out there’ to begin with simply because we haven’t begun to understand it all, but slowly within those many experiences we begin to see and gain that wisdom, usually from the bottom of a trip or stumble. But it is from there that there is only one way to go…up, to regain that light in our hearts and see ‘why’ we had covered it over. And in that one thing we do, we begin to see truly, and begin to experience that love and happiness we have ever searched for. Thank you for sharing Tamara, may that love and freedom ever grace your heart πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  3. I agree Mark. Balance is the answer and getting back to flowing with the earth. Believing in ourselves and connecting to others. Put away the hate and distrust and learning to love again. Living by our heart and ignoring the ego. Wonderful post as usual. xo

    • Mark Lanesbury

      Ah dear Michele, you have worded that beautifully. To the heart from the heart, standing in your balance. Keep that up and I may grab you for my next post πŸ˜€ Love and light to you dear lady, may that balance always be what you are xox πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  4. Your words always a gift to read dear mark, Thankyou❀️ AND this is why we say NewEarth is a reality of unity and harmony each births from within after we realise and feel the foundation of pure love that awaits us all deep withinπŸ₯° I feel I’m revisiting this place deep within now as my broken heart seems to pull me in deeper! I must trust this process to heal or balance me as all I seem to be feeling is pain😩 sending love x

    • Mark Lanesbury

      Dear lady, to touch something so deeply like that loss of such a love as Tom meant to you, is wanting you to feel truly, deeply of something of where he now is. Your connection with Tom will never leave you but in feeling such a power it will open your heart to something so, so beautiful within it. It wants you to grieve so that when it touches your heart you will appreciate that very journey you have made to now become something so much more. It is a hard time to feel such pain but there will be many around on here and around you too, to learn to rest and not be a healer for the many, but allow that power to come into a resting heart. Let it heal you, and then you can give from a new heart, that beauty you know of each time you have been through hard times in your life. Love and light coming to you also my friend, and a big gentle hug to aid your journey xoxo ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

      • You have such a way with words dear mark, Thankyou for helping me through this time❀️ much love x

  5. The slow beauty of awakening to love and understanding

    • Mark Lanesbury

      It is indeed a slow beauty Ananda, carefully giving us understanding of that inner self and the love it is found by. Thank you for sharing kind sir, may that slow beat within be that heart in balance πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  6. Indeed dear Mark, Balance is the Key… We would appreciate nothing much in life if we did not value it…
    Somewhere along the way, many humans have forgotten the lesson of valuing themselves…. They do not see how precious they are, how wonderful life is, or what a gift it is to be sharing this planet and our experiences… Because for many they are programmed into lack, doubt, and fear..
    Fear of what they have being taken, fear of not succeeding, fear of not finding their right partner, their right home, location or job… And the pressure rises…. As they compete, place labels of their levels of achievements…
    Measuring their success, or failures against others… Lacking that balance within themselves…
    We live in this dualistic reality of opposites..
    It teaches us right from our infant days…
    We want, want, want… And the universe gives us exactly what we want.. More Want!. LOL

    It’s not until we Stop, and really dive deeper into the lack, and what it truly is we want.. That which we search for all of our lives…
    And that is LOVE…
    We search for it in our place of work, we search for it in things we buy, we search and search externally for those things we think will bring us happiness and balance..

    Yet we forgot to search within… We forgot to respect the most important person we know… Ourselves… And once we open up our hearts and find that inner love of self, we then see love is everywhere….. in everything…
    When we give our hearts permission, as we set our inner child free, to skip and have fun… and just enjoy the now of BE-ing…. We find true Love..

    Excellent post dear Mark…. really enjoyed reading… ❀️ πŸ˜€ ❀️

    • Mark Lanesbury

      Well said kind lady, it is indeed an environment built on fear so that it forces us to look deeper and appreciate the journey. Slowly building a belief in ourselves, enough so that we dare to look within. In the end we are given a great gift of the discovery of love…our love. It is a long, long journey but having to endure so much increases that appreciated many fold when we finally see that it is for us that it has been created. Even among its pain all are gifted in so many ways so that inside us we build a hope and faith that this gift is from something more profound than where we are now at. May it always guide us to that love.
      But at the moment our fears are being used against us, and they most certainly won’t be giving us any love at the end. Their fear is not built on love but a greed that only a distinct decision against that love can be found. I am actually stunned that it is now, but I shouldn’t be because I can also see that awakening happening so strongly, and as the law of attraction is, it will come together as it must. And the second thing was how everyone has been so deceived in what is really happening even though it has become so obvious that the lies are coming out but they still refuse to believe what is right in front of them. They are afraid but if a stand is not made then what will come will most certainly be a lot more frightening than what they face now. All they have to do is ‘feel’ what is really in their hearts…and they will know that truth. Most certainly don’t listen to anyone, especially me. That love inside will speak loud enough. They just have to listen ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

      • Thank you Mark for this wonderfully explained response.
        And yes, None so blind, as those who will not SEE…
        And when that times comes for those who at the moment do not see or don’t want to see the truth of what is occurring in our world, Then when the Real Truth hits them, many will still be in denial, because they will not believe the depth of deception or the sheer evil of a plan that has been in the works for decades..
        This will then be a fragile line, as anger will bubble over, like a pot on a stove, there will be no stopping it ..
        We I feel are in many ways trying to break the eggs in our own gentle fashion.. But their comes a point where you cannot make omelettes with out breaking eggs..
        We are healers, at our core Mark… And we want less suffering, but people now have to want to help themselves..
        No one can do their inner work but themselves..
        Now as you rightly say, is that time to listen within…. What they have always known deep down…. I pray they do, and open up their hearts accordingly..

        Many blessings dear Mark…. Sending you hugs your way as the Wave of consciousness gathers speed.. πŸ™‚
        β€οΈπŸ˜€πŸ’šβœ¨πŸ™

        • Mark Lanesbury

          I know it has to happen but as you said, an omelette cannot be made without a few eggs being broken first. I can see why the likes of you, me and many others have been so open on here where before we were more ‘gentle’ and only teaching that love within us all, but it has reached a point where it must be. I could ‘feel’ the effect of the mass advertising, like a hypnosis where they constantly bombard their fears with what they want everyone to believe. It has hammered them so much they believe it, just because it comes from the tv or radio, so it must be right. I think Hitler did it in nazi germany where he gave big speeches out in public and on radio bombarding the public with his views…and they believed it all. The english and american troops took the german population around to see the death camps and it almost put them into shock because of how they believed hitler was their savior.
          Thank you kind lady, and that love and hugs returned in kind, and may some sanity return for us all πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

          • Its a well know phycological brain washing. if you have heard of MK ultra… Repetition over and over until you believe it to be true.
            Yes Mark, I have noticed the absence of many, but also have found many have been hoodwinked… A Post I wrote early last year I believe… I put the hawk as an example… Blinked and following blindly..

            You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink,.. And those who will be told the truth, with as you say be in shock and will deny it as they would not believe their own systems would do it to them.
            We are finding our tribes, and we are finding our voices..
            I cannot stand by in silence any longer and yes the truth hurts often,, even when we have to face the truth of ourselves within our own deep dives..
            But the truth will surface, sooner or later… and I want to be on the right side of history in the making,
            Kudos to you Mark…. Stay Blessed and Strong my friend ❀️

            • Mark Lanesbury

              You also dear lady, and as long as we can at least give people the courage to look within to feel that truth around them. Love and light to you Sue, and a loving strength to this journey πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

          • Yes its a well known technique our governments have now perfected into Mass Hypnosis!…. in many respects… certainly ‘Spell binding’ …
            But I feel Humanity en-mass are creating this Time Line of Pluto’s Return to trigger our own release mechanisms… As we gather together in Unity and Love… Something that Evil has no control over..
            Sending love and sending thoughts as Valentines day brings about more Love and freedom on Planet Earth.. πŸ™‚ ❀️

            • Mark Lanesbury

              May it be so dear lady, may it be so ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  7. I think the world right now is out of balance. If only that were easy to correct. Ever the optimist, I will hope for the best. Beautifully said Mark.

    • Mark Lanesbury

      It is indeed dear lady but thankfully we are in a beautiful phase where we are wanting that balance, knowing that a balance can be found. We ‘know’ self love now, see it for what it is and begin to believe in us because of it. That now means that anything that is unbalanced we react to much more because we don’t want what we have ever had to put up with. We want to be free, in heart and mind. And anything that tests that place inside us is shunned. It’s the equivalent of letting a child run an adults life, their wisdom is very limited, their wants and needs so restricted by the rawness of their fears, and their balance is no longer comfortable to be around because they want to drag us back into that place we no longer wish to be. We are beyond their journey. It is time to vote for that love so that we can be raised as will everyone else by its guidance. Thank you for your kind words dear lady, your love is shared within it πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  8. So beautifully written, vibrant with live experience and seasoned with wisdom. Thank you Mark for this morning’s gift!

    • Mark Lanesbury

      Thank you George, I have just been given the understanding (wisdom), by experiencing it all so I can appreciate seeing the forest for the tree’s. We are so ‘unbalanced’ on a day to day basis we are struggling to put one foot in front of the other. But slowly those steps can be seen from a wider and wider perspective as our own wisdom is gained and we begin to see where we are unbalanced and ask of ourselves to heal and finally be free because of it. Thank you for sharing πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  9. Mark, this is so beautiful. It describes everything I feel of love and overcoming situations to KNOW true love. When people ask me how I did/do it, I can squarely say, β€œWith faith and love!” If you haven’t lost anything then what is found? At the bottom I was lifted up! Sending hugs and love! πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’•

    • Mark Lanesbury

      Thank you dear Karla, He has made us with that love and being down here unbalances it. And we can feel that within us and ever look to find what is missing. Never sure until we find that it is just us within, and not ‘out there’. And begin to heal and find that perfect balance that is the true us πŸ˜€ ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹

  10. Love this and can never hear it enough ❀️everything IS balance. Even me asking the questions – provokes you to supply the answers and guidance πŸ’œLove it all!!!

    • Mark Lanesbury

      That it does dear lady, we even ‘feel’ wrong when there is something worrying us because we are out of that balance of love ❀️ πŸ™πŸ½ πŸ¦‹
