LOVE

LOVE

 

I am the promise of the new day that’s dawning.

I am your dreams that come true….

I am your hope of peace on our planet

I am the Love within you.

 

It is important to build up a true Love-consciousness on a daily basis.  Love will heal us.  Love will comfort us.  Love will guide us.  Love will dissolve all negativity in our lives, no matter what form it has taken.  Love will redeem us from sin, sickness, and death, and lead us into an experience of Heaven on Earth.  Love is all there is, and it is the answer to every problem.  God is Love, and Love is God in action and it is the strongest force in the Universe.  Love will lead us to miracles.

 

 

1 Corinthians 13:1-7 

 

If I speak in the tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.  And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.  If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

 

Love is patient;

Love is kind;

Love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude.

It does not insist on its own way;

It is not irritable or resentful;

It does not rejoice in wrongdoing,

But rejoices in truth.

It bears all things,

Believes all things,

Hopes all things,

Endures all things.

 

 

In The Mastery of Love, author Don Miguel Ruiz explains to us the difference between Love and Fear: “Love has no obligations.  Fear is full of obligations.  Fear has resistance.  Love has no resistance; whatever we do is because we want to do it.  Love has no expectations.  Fear is full of expectations.  With fear we do things because we expect that we have to, and we expect that others are going to do the same.  That is why fear hurts and love doesn’t hurt.  We blame others for not fulfilling our expectations.  When we love, we don’t have expectations; we do it because we want to, and if other people do it or not, it’s because they want to or not and it’s nothing personal.  Love is based on respect.  Fear doesn’t respect anything, including itself.  Self-pity comes from disrespect.  Love is ruthless; it doesn’t feel sorry for anyone, but it does have compassion.  Fear is full of pity; it feels sorry for everyone.  Love is completely responsible.  Fear avoids responsibility.  Love is always kind.  Fear is always unkind.  Love is unconditional.  Fear is full of conditions.”

 

 

Love is by far the most important thing of all

 

It is the Golden Gate of Paradise. 

It casts out fear. 

It is the fulfilling of the Law. 

It covers a multitude of sins. 

Love is absolutely invincible. 

 

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;

no disease that enough love will not heal;

no door that enough love will not open;

no gulf that enough love will not bridge;

no wall that enough love will not throw down;

no sin that enough love will not redeem.

The only question to ask at all critical junctures in human relationships is “What would love do now?”  In order to grow spiritually and become masters of love, we must be willing to choose love in every situation.  We must practice love, considering the “Highest Good” for all involved.  Our ego wants us to take care of ourselves, telling us, “Look out for number one”, but as we grow spiritually, we must consider what is the best answer for everyone.

 

All disease and unhappiness come from the violation of the law of love.  Expressing Love is the way to be happy; practicing unconditional love for ourselves and others.  ‘Unconditional’ meaning that we love just as we are, who we are today, with no expectations, no limitations, no exceptions, releasing all past blame and guilt.  Love wipes the slate clean.  Remember, Love is not allowing ourselves to be abused, but it is forgiving ourselves and others of past sins and moving on with our lives.  Love means we just accept who we are, and accept everyone else the way he or she is.  We have the right to love, to smile, to be happy, and to share our love with others.  Everyday we can choose Love.

 

 

MEDITATIVE PRAYER FOR DIVINE LOVE

 

My soul is filled with Divine Love.  I am surrounded by Divine Love.  I radiate Love and Peace to the whole world.  I have conscious Divine Love.  God is Love, and there is nothing in existence but God and His Self-expression.  All men are expressions of Divine Love, therefore, I can meet with nothing but the expressions of Divine Love.  Nothing ever takes place but the Self-expressing of Divine Love.

 

All this is true now.  This is the actual case, the actual state of affairs.  I do not have to try to bring this about, but I observe it already in being now.  Divine Love is the actual nature of Being.  There is only Divine Love, and I know this.

 

I perfectly understand what Divine Love is.  I have conscious realization of Divine Love.  The Love of God burns in me for all humanity.  I am a lamp of God, radiating Divine Love to all whom I meet, to all whom I think of .

 

I forgive everything that can possibly need forgiveness—positively everything.  Divine Love fills my heart, and all is well.  I now radiate Love to the whole universe excluding no one.  I experience Divine Love.  I demonstrate Divine Love.

 

I thank God for this.

 

 

The Healing Power of Love Process:

 

Sit quietly and remember a person or situation that causes you pain.

Hold that picture in your mind for a moment.

Imagine love moving from your heart as a golden vapor and surrounding the person or situation, totally permeating them/it.  See the person or situation enveloped in a golden cloud of pure love. 

 

Repeat this process each time the memory comes up.  Eventually the memory will come, and there will be no pain.  You may also find that when you come across the person again, that you experience a feeling of friendliness, and their attitude toward you has changed as well.
