LOVE – WEEK 3: PART 1

Be love in the world

Nothing sums up the meaning of love better than this comment that’s floating around Facebook:

As the world fights to figure this all out, I’ll be holding doors for strangers, letting people cut in front of me in traffic, saying good morning, keeping babies entertained in grocery lines, stopping to talk to someone who is lonely, tipping generously, calling you by the name on your tag, waving at police, sharing food, giving children a thumbs-up, being patient with sales clerks and smiling at passersby as often as I am provided the opportunity, buying a total stranger a cup of coffee.

 

Make unconditional love visible

Why should you do this? I will not stand idly by and live in a world where unconditional love is invisible.   Join me in showing love, judging less. Find your own way to swing the pendulum in the direction of love.
Be kind to a stranger today and every day. It just may be a friend you have never met. Pay it forward for any kindness shown to you in the past. Be the change!!! Be the light!! Start TODAY!

 

LOVE – WEEK 3: PART 2

Love…….be the presence of love in the world.

 

LOVE – WEEK 3: PART 3

 

I am love. I see love. I hear love.

 

I speak love. I think love. I touch with love. I act with love. I am the expression of divine love in the world and that fills me with joy.

Please understand that love does not exist in the world except to the extent that we each BRING IT INTO THE WORLD. And we each have an infinite capacity to love, so there is no need to fear running out. The more you give, the more you have. Think about it.

Love is an action!

 Although we often think of love as an emotion, as a noun, it is in reality an ACTION; it is a VERB.   We have already discussed a myriad of ways that you can act lovingly in the world.  These actions are almost always directed toward others.    But loving yourself is really the beginning.   So drop your frustrations; drop your hurt feelings; drop your life in the past.   Open your heart to today and be love in the world.

Give yourself the “present.”

 

But I want you to realize that when you act lovingly toward others, you are also giving yourself a precious gift.   In these loving moments of time, YOU are choosing love not fear or anger or frustration.  And that truly is the special gift that makes the present moment a “present or gift,”  one that you can place under the Christmas tree of your heart in every moment.

The ADVENT season is the season of “becoming.”   We anticipate the birth of baby Jesus, but most importantly we also realize that in our own hearts we are birthing HOPE, PEACE, joy, and LOVE.   Please remember that.    Namaste.

A new commandment…..

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another. just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.

–John13:34

Remember, “love” is a verb, not a noun.  Go do it!
