The month of February has a tendency to bring up the subject of love, therefore I’ve chosen “Love is in the Air” for this month’s theme. Love is both a noun and a verb in the English language making it somewhat of an anomaly. Love is like a many faceted diamond that sparkles in the light and usually brings up feelings of happiness and soul satisfaction.
In our teaching, we easily interchange God and Love in the same breath for the Bible tells us God is Love. Throughout the Bible we are instructed to love – to love the lord your God, love your neighbor as yourself, love your enemies, love one another, the fruit of the spirit is love and love casts out fear – just to name a few.
Since we are made in the image and likeness of God, that makes us Love in expression, but do we believe it? There my dear friend is the rub. We come to this earth plane with a psyche which includes an ego, telling us we are separate and apart from everyone and everything else. If we listen, even subconsciously to it, a fear factor or an egotism factor develops, causing a flight or fight response.
God is Love. I am Love. God is all. Love is all. When I bring this realization down deep into my consciousness a shift occurs. I no longer feel separate but succumb to the recognition that wherever I cast my gaze I see Love – be it myself, my neighbor, my enemy. As we enter this month of “Love”, let us be open to allowing this Love that we are to easily flow through and from us. As we do, a healing balm is released and we are given a new lease on life for fear and judgment go back into the nothingness from which they came.
Say with me: “I am Love in expression, therefore let me count the ways I will allow and let It spring forth from me in expected and unexpected ways bringing me a joy beyond measure. And it is so.” grateful to be a miracle worker. And it is so.”
