Dear friend,

What is love?

  • Love is kindness. Forgiveness. Holding a positive attitude.
  • Acceptance. Understanding.
  • Compassion. Caring. Sharing.
  • Supporting. Giving.
  • Saying you care, saying you love.
  • Working for a better situation for all, wherever you find yourself.
  • Praying for a better situation for others.
  • Wearing a smile.
  • Lifting the energy.
  • Providing solace. Holding a friend in pain.
  • Feeling joy.
  • It means doing these things now, in your current situation, with the people around you
  • Projecting these attitudes to people you don’t know.
  • Letting go of that great hurt from decades ago.
  • And letting go of your hurt from yesterday when someone made that thoughtless comment.
  • Love is doing it all with our attention on our Creator.

What is Not Love?

  • Allowing yourself to be used. Being a door mat. Accepting inappropriate behavior.
  • Making yourself sick with worry.
  • Thinking poorly of yourself.
  • Being angry because another isn’t “better.”
  • Thinking you need to fix everything. Believing you need to save everyone.

Love is Now.
Live your life. Be a channel for God’s light today. Now. How “evolved” you think you are doesn’t matter.
Share the light that is in you. Now.
