Real Love Is Given Freely, Stop Trying To Earn It! - Daily Love with Mastin Kipp

Real Love Is Given Freely, Stop Trying To Earn It!

A Daily Lover emailed me and said, “Mastin, what’s all this talk about Grace, what IS Grace anyways?”

It’s a valid question and one I’ve talked about before, but it’s 2012 – and TDL has been blessed with many more readers since my last blog on Grace, so in this blog I’m going to do my best to break down what the heck Grace is.

Grace is something that has been talked about for a long time. It’s all over the Bible – but it’s not a Christian or even a religious thing. It’s just something that happens in Life, like Karma (cause and effect), Synchronicity or Gravity. All these things exist and we don’t know exactly what they are; they are still mysterious to us, but we are starting to understand more and more.

For the sake of this blog, I’m going to make an assumption that there is a Creative and Benevolent Source that created us and binds us all together – and here at TDL we call that Source The Uni-verse. I’m not going to debate about this; if you don’t believe in a Creator, I’m not going to try to make you. But Grace is best described in context to a Creator – though you can experience Grace no matter what your beliefs ARE, because Grace doesn’t care what your beliefs are, Grace hooks you up nonetheless.

Grace by definition is “Favor or goodwill”. Favor by whom? Well, I’m going to say The Uni-verse. We were created by The Uni-verse to express our gifts and to collaborate with each other to help each other reach our highest expression of creative freedom. Each person has been created for a specific purpose and reason – and NO other person can fulfill this purpose other than YOU. In this way, we are all children of The Uni-verse and favored.

This is not something we have to earn. This is something that is given to us freely from a place of Love. And the cool thing about Grace is that Grace can cancel Karma. Karma is the law of cause and effect – every action creates and equal and opposite reaction. But that isn’t how Grace works. There is no action that requires Grace to come forth and there is no negative effect that Grace can’t stop.

The other thing that it’s important to remember is that from our limited point of view, we can’t always see in the moment what is best for us. So – what seems to be a total disaster can actually be Grace in action.

Sometimes our biggest problem is the greatest act of Grace. What seems like horror, terror or really bad luck is the event that we needed in order to heal our wounds, step out into our power and then use our experience, strength and hope to help other people come out of their darkness. Grace can feel like a soft feather and sometimes Grace can be a kick in the teeth (or worse). But over time and with enough practice, we can begin to see the dual nature of life playing itself out on the human plane and know that even in the worst of it, we are a Light in the world, and perhaps the purpose of all this darkness is the opportunity for us to discover our own Light.
