River Of Love Is Flowing---Open Our Hearts!!!
As we enter this beautiful month of May in the Midwest the flowers are
in full bloom, the weather is mild, Spring is in full flower. This beautiful
expression of Mother Natures amazing bounty reminds me of our
same gifts that we, as humans, express as joy, generosity of spirit,
strength, perseverance, intelligence, compassion. These gifts are so
eloquently addressed in a book I truly love titled, The Intelligent
Heart, by Bruce MacArthur and David MacArthur, a father and son
team studying the healing capacity of the heart as we bring more love
into our lives. The book speaks of the heart as having an intelligence
of its own. I was thrilled by this books challenge to live our
lives at a very different level. Ive been learning some amazingly
powerful, dynamic lessons in the last few months about how to be love
in action! As humans weve learned some constricting patterns that
hurt us. Ive certainly learned some of them and I want to bless
them all and release them so I can be more of love in action! This book
speaks to the opportunity to live our lives from a full out consciousness
of love! The authors detailed experiments that dramatically showed the
power of hate and the power of love. The experiments showed that expressing
five minutes of love boosts the immune system for six hours!! Expressing
five minutes of hate depressed the immune system for six hours!! Imagine
that pattern over a lifetime!!! I was totally amazed by these results.
learned of the power of the body-mind connection in 1974 when I first
discovered the New Age spiritual traditions as practiced through Unity.
Since then I have done my very best to align my daily spiritual practice
with love, joy and peace. I truly know this daily practice makes a difference
in who I am as a person. I would like to share my feelings with you
about how I believe we can all make a daily difference in our lives
and in the lives of all people we meet each day. This change is in reference
to a social practice that has been popularized in these last few years.
I am very saddened by this practice because I feel it so greatly demeans
us as human beings who have such great capacity to love and work together.
I do not want to judge this practice. I simply want to bring more love
into practice and speak to this issue every time I can from a centeredness
of love and peace. In so doing I focus on the solution not the problem.
I am speaking of the concept of political correctness. It
seems to me that the concept of political correctness as
I see it being expressed today is coming from a place of sadness and
fear, as a child does when the child is in a changing social situation
and doesnt know how to properly behave in order to avoid punishment;
when the child hasnt yet learned about the essence of love they
are inside! What I learned again recently is that love is the answer
to every situation!! I hear this situation now as a call to love; as
a call to remind ourselves that the only true response to any situation
is to answer with love and respect. Then there is no such thing as political
correctness because the full presence of love and respect is there!
Love and respect literally take care of, and bring care into, every
so saddened every time I realize and experience how afraid I, and we,
have learned to be. I have recommitted myself this year to bringing
as much love, peace and joy into every situation as I possibly can.
Part of that healing process means learning to speak in the moment from
a place of love rather than from a place of knee-jerk fear and pain.
Part of that healing process means forgiving myself for not loving myself
enough to see my wholeness, my true capacity of who I truly am, and
who I am truly becoming. I truly love and appreciate this spiritual
healing challenge. I recognize that this change takes place in me and
in everyone one moment at a time, one decision at a time. Part of that
change involves knowing that everyone deserves the very best in life!
No one deserves to live in fear! This change comes about as we make
a place in our consciousness for the new change. Make a new daily commitment
to lay a new pattern in our souls with words that convey the feeling
Radiant Presence of Love I love you so very much!!!! In
a months time well be able to look back on an amazing change
as if were looking back on a fog of discontent and unrest from
a new peaceful, joyful clearing marked by a radiant presence and peace.
In that radiant consciousness of love all lives are transformed. Thats
the amazing miracle of change. One person changes---all of us change!
We bring forth the truly amazing spiritual capacity we have as humans
to express a new level of partnership cooperation where every life is
valued. Imagine living and loving in that kind of world!!! Imagination
leads to action. Action leads to manifestation. I truly feel we dont
need to live lives of quiet or violent desperation. We dont need
to feel isolated and alienated. We can choose to live and love and share
in a beautiful, vibrant, respectful, peaceful world with ourselves and
each other. We can choose to love and honor relationship, partnership,
and sexual expression as sacred and we can treat ourselves and each
other with love and respect. I hold this transformative vision and expression
with you! Love and respect to you each and every day. Namaste!!!!!!!!!
I behold the Presence of Love in you!!!!!!
