Looking For Love in All the Wrong Places?


You're on a mission and you're wishin'
someone could cure you're lonely condition
You're lookin for love in all the wrong places
Not fine girls just ugly faces
From frustration first inclination
Is to become a monk and leave the situation
But every dark tunnel has a lighter hope
So don't hang yourself with a celibate rope
                 ~ Young MC (Bust a Move lyrics)

It's been over 20 years since the one hit wonder Bust a Move was released by Young MC, but the lyrics remain timeless.  And as the Beatles so eloquently put it, 'all you need is love, love, love is all you need.'  Yes, yes, yes, but where do you find this love?


When you are in love, the world is full of infinite possibilities.  The sky is bluer, the grass is greener, the air is cleaner and you become a dreamer.  Love is the most powerful vibration in the Universe.   Unfortunately, most people spend their whole life searching for true love and never find it.  

Chances are you are either in love, looking for love or claim to have given up on love.  Perhaps you can close your eyes and travel back in time to a moment when you felt pure love; maybe you were a small child, maybe you were holding a small child or perhaps it was a grade school crush.  When you picture this moment, it lifts your heart.  With your eyes closed you can actually begin to feel the same love you felt earlier.  

When you begin a new relationship, you initially feel like you are in love, you actually feel high and float through life.  You just give and give and do not calculate who is giving more.  When you begin to fall out of love, you start to notice the faults of another and begin to judge.  This is not true love, it is the result of what began as a physical attraction.  True love and lasting love cannot be found outside of you until you find it inside of you.  If you are looking in bars, clubs, the grocery store, coffee shop, online dating services, yoga class or anywhere else for love, then you are looking in all the wrong places.

Perhaps you are married or in a relationship and you are feeling disconnected or coexisting without passion.  It is easy to blame your partner for not doing their part, but that will not bring you any closer to the love you are missing.

The place to begin is by looking in the mirror.  You cannot have a loving relationship with another, until you create a loving relationship with yourself.  A life without love is like a candle without a wick.  First you must look inside yourself for your own light, it is your wick.  The moment you ignite your spirit and put fire in your soul, your soulmate will come find you, or your relationship will take on a new life.  

Love is an elevation of consciousness.  It happens inside of you, thereby creating a magnetic affect drawing others to you.  Love is the Law of Attraction in Action.  Before you decide to become a monk and take a vow of celibacy, take inventory of your own character, and honestly note if you are vibrating in the true frequency of love.   

The Truth is, you don't need to look for love at all.  In fact, when you chase it, it runs away.  The moment you become love, it comes to find you.   Like Gandhi said, "Where the is Love, there is Life."  It's your Life and Life is Short.  Make yours Magical!  

All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
