By Camille Lucy | Inspiremetoday.com The word “love” is one that is thrown around perhaps more often than it should be. We all want to share love with someone, to receive love, to feel loved.

Love is everything, and yet it can be so very easy to lose sight of its importance as we get bogged down with the stressors of daily life.

Nothing is more natural than love. Unfortunately we get distracted along the journey of life, forgetting what it is like to truly love unconditionally. If we act with love and compassion throughout life we will discover that our paradigm changes and we are free to engage in a more meaningful way with others. It sounds clichéd but John Lennon and Paul McCartney summed it up with their hit song ‘All you need is love.’ Presently, as individuals and as a society, we are living in a state of fear. Love is timeless, shapeless, separate from nothing, enduring, constant, non-judgemental, kind, not jealous, giving and removes all boundaries. We are scared of the uncertainty that comes from political, economic and environmental change. Only when we turn this fear into love, do we see a shift in humanity, certainty and the coming together of all, as one.
What I believe we are truly seeking is to amplify love in our lives. To be experiencing love not just more regularly but in every moment. To be able to drop into the expansive serenity of gratitude easily and effortlessly. I am writing this blog because I feel as though I am getting there. More and more, with less and less effort, I believe I am amplifying love in my life.
