Love

1 Corinthians 13:13 "And now three remain; Faith, Hope and Love. But the greatest of these is Love."

As spiritual beings, we are God’s creation, endowed with many inner gifts to be used in our soul unfoldment. We know that the greatest of these gifts is love, which we celebrate in the month of April. One function of love is cooperation. Nature gives us excellent examples of how that operates easily and smoothly among various life forms. When there is cooperation, those involved act together for the benefit of each other. We see this cooperation in life cycles throughout the universe.

Emmet Fox provides this power statement, “There is no difficulty that not enough love will not heal; no door that enough love will not open; no gulf that enough love will not bridge; no wall that enough love will not throw down; no sin that enough love will not redeem.”

Love is the divine principle of harmony that is the basis of all heavenly conditions. The time has come for heaven to be manifested in the earth plane, and in realizing this let us begin now to let love be expressed in its divine purity in all that we think, say and do. Let our thoughts be aligned with the divine emanations of love. Let our words be tender compassionate, understanding, and filled with love.

Love is the idea in Divine Mind of unity, universal oneness and attraction. It is the cosmic harmonizer that keeps the planets rotating in an orderly fashion. It is the force of gravity that holds everything in its proper place on our home, Earth. In each of us, it functions as kindness, goodwill, compassion and cooperation. Spiritual love is unconditional, without preferences and without prejudices. It is a healing balm that will bring peace to any situation and calmness to any soul. When you work with the power of love, you will find that life becomes easier and less stressful. Keep something pink with you to remind yourself that we are all created in the image and after the likeness of God, who loves each of us equally. Remember; “There is nothing you could ever do that could separate you from this Love.”
