LOVE is all there is. This is the most important lesson of all. Love is the most powerful force in the Universe, trumping everything else. God’s most precious gift to us, given freely and unconditionally and available to all, it is our birthright. And it begins with loving ourselves.
I passed by a kiosk outside a church the other day. The sign said “Jesus loves you. All of you.” I interpreted it to mean even the parts of us we feel are unlovable, for God only sees the perfection in us, knows our soul and takes great joy in our growth and evolution.
Those who have undergone near-death experiences portray the love they sense upon entering the other dimensions as the most amazing feeling, an almost indescribable peace and joy that passes all understanding. Somewhere along the way, in the Earth plane experience, we have lost that feeling of love.
It is only when we know true unconditional love, not the romantic type, rather the kind of love that sees God’s perfection in everything – every living creature in the world and beyond, even ourselves – do we begin to understand. When we feel loved we can appreciate that all is connected, all is a unique aspect of God and we are unable to harm another life, whether a person, an animal, or a part of nature, for we know that we are it and it is us. God is indeed in all of us, we are all part of its creation.
I have realized that unconditional love at times from my angels and guides, from my loved ones on the other side. I can feel them wrapping their arms around me especially when I am in despair. Their love has buoyed me, kept me going when I was feeling lost and alone. I have been blessed indeed.
Love like this truly begins with us. The time is now for us to release those beliefs about ourselves that say we are not good enough, not loveable; to send love to both ourselves and the many others in the world just like us. When we let go of our fear we find the peace we are searching for.
Though humans are but a mere speck in the great cosmos we are powerful creators, powerful beyond anything we can imagine. What we send out to the Universe through our thoughts, words, and deeds carries an amazing energy. It ripples out, across the expanse and returns to us to create the world we see and experience.
There are really only two emotions: Love and Fear. When we live in fear, we know hate, competition, scarcity, and lack. When we choose to live from a place of love, we know joy, happiness, compassion, giving, collaboration, and peace. We can buy into the idea that we are separate, or we can send love to those parts of the world that are not in a frequency of love. We must understand that those who do things we deem horrifying act from a place of fear and a deep down belief that they are not loved or valued.
I want to believe that we are on the cusp of a remarkable age in the history of our planet. It is a period of rebirth and renewal, a time of creation and WE are the co-creators; it is our choice point. What do we choose? Love or fear? Peace or war? Joy or sadness?
Can we recognize our divinity, our connection to all and make choices that serve and honor all life? I think we can. We agreed to come here, eager to be part of this auspicious time on planet Earth. It is time for each of us to step up and choose what kind of world we want to live in.
Peace begins with me…
We attended a concert a while back, Beatlemania with the local Symphony. It was great fun, all of us Baby Boomers dancing and groovin’ away to all the songs we grew up with. One thing really caught our attention though, aside from the beer bellies and blue jeans; we were delighted to see many in the audience opening their cell phones to shine light on the concert. It’s been a while since we’ve been to a rock concert, cell phones instead of cigarette lighters, amazing! It started with just a couple and then the lights multiplied one by one as more and more of us caught on. A single light here, another there, four more in that section, a whole row across the way; eventually, the entire hall was filled with shining lights. Cool…..
Deepak Chopra talks about how we can create a more peaceful world, not by marching at a peace rally or demanding our government stop the war, but by living our own lives from a place of peace, by recognizing that change begins not just with us, but in us. He believes that one by one we can reach critical mass, that we can hit that tipping point that makes peace an everyday occurrence for our entire planet.
What if that was all it took? By creating harmony in our own space, we are creating harmony on our planet. Each of us living our own life in peace and allowing our light to shine? Can’t you just see it? One by one, a twinkle here, a flicker there, until the lights begin to merge together lighting up the darkness. Kind of reminds me of the song many of us learned in Sunday school This Little Light of Mine, I’m Gonna Let It Shine. Sometimes it is difficult to believe that just one person can make a difference. And yes, one light is just a tiny glimmer, but thousands of lights can brighten a concert arena, and millions of lights, all shining together, can brighten a world.
It’s in there, that beautiful spark we were born with. That bright light that declares we are a magnificent, perfect child of God, unconditionally loved and loving. We may have forgotten who we are; we may have covered that light with a thousand shades, so dense that we barely remember it. But it never extinguishes. It’s not too late… to uncover our beautiful spark, to remember what brings us joy, what lights our fire, to BE who we truly are. There is only one thing to remember: LOVE is all there is.
