It’s Valentine’s Day and I want to write about love. All morning I thought about love. Romantic love.Family love. Love (or attachment to?) of things, places, tastes, feelings. As I sat down to write I became overwhelmed by the depth of this topic. I’m not sure I can say anything that hasn’t been said. Which is exactly why I have to say something. Here it goes.
I think the concept of love is simple. I mean, even very young children can grasp the concept of love. Maybe the world needs to keep it simple (KISS) when it comes to love.
All the time.
Why is this so hard for us? I think it’s because we forget that we are love.
See, I believe the Universe and everything in it was created from a loving energy. That loving energy makes up the grass and trees, buildings and cars, you, me, the Universe and God. Love is everything and everything is love. When I love you I also love myself. If I hate you, I must also hate myself. Get it?
We are all the same, from the same loving vibration. We are all one. Love moves through us and surrounds us. We are connected by love. Love is the very essence of who we are, the essence of life.
I say we embrace our true loving nature and spread it everywhere we go. I challenge to try to love someone you don’t find especially lovable and see how it opens your heart. Notice how the more you love the more love you notice.
And I’ll leave you with the simple words of The Beatles…all you need is love, love is all you need.
