Love isn’t something that happens to you; it’s something that you choose
There is a pure love
That renders one speechless
When you come upon it
It asks nothing; it takes nothing
It is the stillness of an orchestra
Before the first note
A flower about to burst into petals
An endless silence that
Can only be the unknown
Mystery called God
There are many different religions and cultural beliefs practiced in our world; each with its own customs and personality. However, we all share one thing in common; we are spiritual beings living through human bodies. We are connected on an energetic level to all that exists. We are the energy that makes the infinite oneness. Love is that oneness. Scientific studies have shown without love a newborn would die.
We come in needing love and we want love around us whenever we go.
If you believe nothing else this time of the year it’s important to believe in higher love.
There is no doubt in my mind that the number one quality of life is love. Even nonbelievers, atheists and agnostics can see the power of love and how it has the ability to change people and change lives when it is heartfelt.
The entertainment industry has made countless numbers of movies concerning the power of love. Romantic relationships are still the top sellers for moviegoers. Even hard, tough people can be brought to tears watching movies about the power of love.
Love is a universal language that transcends people, animals, nations and religions. People from all different cultures come together and recognize it for the power it creates.
No matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
Life is about love. Because what we return to for everlasting life is the light of love. Love is the energy we are without bodies. Our true essence is unconditional love. As the sun loves the earth is unconditional love. An example is God’s love for Christ. The first Commandment in the Holy Bible is, “You must love the Lord thy God with all your heart. The second is that you love your neighbor as yourself.” From these two commandments all the rest come forth.
Love will last forever; that is why it’s important to love your essence first. Your essence is love. For love in the world will pass away, but your essence remains.
No matter what you have or don’t have, how you treat people will be the legacy you leave behind. When people are ready to leave the earth in their final moments, it is not their possessions they ask for. They do not say bring my diploma close to me. Put my gold around me. But they ask for the people they love and those that love them. Relationships are what we realize life is all about. The love we share is what we take back with us. We are evaluated with our love. Why is it that countless people will experience the relationships in their lives before they depart down the tunnel of life? Because when we transfer to eternity we only take love.
Ask any child. It is time spent doing with them that they remember most. We can find ourselves busy with stuff and not take time to do the most important thing that will last for eternity: that is love. This time of year it’s a good idea to remember the love you were given to be here. To be alive you came out of love. And that is what you are purposed to return to.
