Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Invited you to a party
In the ballroom tonight
Will be my special
How would you then treat them
Let us know now –
There is no one in this world
Is not upon
Love’s Jeweled Dance
Hafiz ~ Ladinsky
Through our willingness to serve in love, we are transformed. We return to the remembrance of our perfection as Love perfects us through service to our fellow humans. I’ve discovered that Love changes us while we are being used. We don’t have to wait to get it all together; all we have to do is be willing to let Love set us free.
Love sets us free to look upon one another beyond classifications of religion, race, sexuality or gender. Love sets us free of seeing one another through the lens of fear and hate. And Love works in and through us in service to one another.
If you feel that you have not been given enough love, decide today to be a giver of Love. It sounds simple to decide to be a loving person, but of course, we know that it is not. You don’t have to love everyone today; instead, each day; decide to love one more human being. Hold a door open for someone, smile at another, a “thank you” to someone else. Love need not be complicated.
The ultimate goal of humanity is to love one another. Your consistent willingness to choose love is the pinnacle of spiritual maturity. It’s the mountaintop; it’s what you are here to learn. You won’t learn to love over night, you’re not supposed to. Learning to love is the task of a lifetime.
God is not looking for perfect people to do Love’s work. If so, let’s face it, there would be a very small work force. Each one of us is needed. Love can only be extended on this earth through people who become willing to extend it. Take this idea seriously and you will come to know that Love is power. Love will set you free.
And so as you go about your life this week, recognize that the time to love is now. If not you, who? If not now, when? Each day become willing to ask and heed the question, “How can I love today?”
Love will begin to permeate and embrace your life. Practice love on purpose as if your life depended on it – it does.
Happy Valentine's day!
Much Love to you!
