For your consideration….
When I was asked to write this blog, I argued all the reasons why I couldn’t, shouldn’t, wasn’t the right person etc. I was convinced that I could not come up with a message every day. I was promised that would not be a problem. If I faithfully meditated each day, I would be given the message. From that point on I have I have followed the philosophy that “You get what you get and you don’t throw a fit.” Yes, just like we tell our children….but I feel like a child needed and being guided. Today, for the first time ever, I asked for a message about a topic. I asked for a message about love. After all, we are celebrating love today. I was not disappointed. Today we have a message about love.
We have heard messages about love before. But it is good to be reminded. Love is all there is because it is all that is real. Love is truth. Love is light. Love has NO strings attached. Love is empty of judgment. It expects nothing in return. It just is.
Today we are given this analogy. Love is like an extract. Love is the pure essence of life. It is the concentrated version of it. Love added to anything heightens the experience. It purifies it. It brightens it. Whether we add a little or a lot, love makes everything better. But unlike an extract, we can never add to much. Nothing is ever spoiled with too much love.
Stop, I can hear you thinking. “I know some spoiled people.” “I know some overbearing parents, spouses, friends etc. that love too much. They go too far.” Go back to the second paragraph. It is not the love that is too much. It is the strings, judgment, expectations that are placed on that love that is keeping it from being all it is meant to be.
We are asked to love with all our soul. Leave ego out of it. It is not part of pure love.
That is the HOPE. And so it is.
Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….
-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”
-Drink lots of water.
-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.
-Love with all your soul.
What made me smile yesterday….
-My favorite kindergarten class.
-Sun and warm weather.
-Alex made me belly laugh.
-I have been receiving affirmation after affirmation. I love it.
Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
Rev. Chris
