Fostering Inner Growth
To foster community and inner growth in South Texas, Infinite Love holds group meditation sessions at the Infinite Love Center every Wednesday evening. Attendees share food provided by the volunteers, connect to each other in friendship, and do yoga and meditate together to pursue balance and inner peace in a sometimes harsh world. The group also hosts weekly yoga and meditation for children as well as for children with autism.
Infinite Love also brings motivational and spiritual speakers to South Texas to uplift and inspire the community. Previous guest speakers include Neale Donald Walsch (author of Conversations with God), Nipun Mehta (founder of ServiceSpace), and Elizabeth Gilbert (author of Eat, Pray, Love). A portion of the event tickets are reserved to give away as gifts to those who would love to attend but do not have the resources to comfortably purchase a ticket.
Once a quarter, Infinite Love hosts Women of Love, a gathering of women who are motivated by love to empower each other and to give back to the community.
The story behind the founding of Infinite Love involves heartache and suffering. As most stories of struggle go, however, it ends with light and incredible growth.
The four mothers who founded Infinite Love – three sisters and one cousin – had settled into comfortable lives in South Texas before the difficulties came, one right after the other. Two families members lost their lives to cancer, a nephew encountered an accident that left him paralyzed from the waist down, and one of the ladies ended a marriage of 18 years and had to start her life anew. These challenging events shook the ladies out of their slumber and left the grounds fertile for planting the seeds of a shift.
In need of a source of deep healing, they turned to the deeper questions: Why am I here? What is important to me? How do I want to live my life? Everywhere they turned, to spiritual speakers, personal gurus, and countless books, the answer to these questions was always the same: Love. They began to feel deep truths of oneness, interconnection, and compassion as they struggled through their challenges and leaned on the shoulders of friends, family, and strangers. The more they looked, the deeper they healed. The more they healed, the more they wanted to help others heal. The suffering had led them to see the world as their family, and a desire emerged to serve their family with love.
Will fully opened hearts, on Valentine’s Day of 2012, the four ladies announced that they were starting an entirely volunteer-run organization called Infinite Love. And the journey continues today.
To fulfill its mission of service, members bring fresh food and warm company to the homeless at a local park every Tuesday and Friday evening. The organization supplements this outreach by working toward providing housing for individuals in dire need of shelter while they work on getting their lives back in order.
Infinite love also spends time visiting cancer patients and their families to provide meals and emotional support during their struggle. Our dream is to have a place of lodging and rest for patients and families who come to McAllen for cancer treatment. Knowing that they do not have to worry about lodging expenses or finding a place to stay should help alleviate some of their discomfort and allow them to focus on getting better.
While giving, we also receive. Our service not only uplifts those we serve, but it also reminds us of our deep connection to each other, which facilitates our mission of fostering inner growth.
