Recently a post on a friend’s Facebook site caught my eye, one that simply asked “WHAT do you love?” There was a rather robust response; a few of the more popular ones were: family and friends; Nature; jobs, pets, God, Jesus, country, peace, and so on. As I was reading them, I saw bubbles, each bubble encompassing what is most dear to that individual. I thought about the great love that must exist there within each of these bubbles. But then I saw the space “between the bubbles”.
In my view, there is no space, no disconnects in the love between God and any of its creations. I thought, what if we could connect each bubble, the greatest love of each individual on this planet, into one bubble; imagine what that would look like! So I chose the following response: “Awakened souls, actively engaged in the awakening of other souls.”
I’d like to share the following, taken from an unfinished writing project: ...Understanding love is a prelude to success on the journey to greater spiritual reality. Love is the fabric from which all of creation is woven, no matter what our perspective of creation might be. All of creation, from the Heart of God to our own hearts, is but Infinite Love, layered in level after level, allowing the opportunity for souls to achieve greater conscious awareness, an ever greater understanding of and capacity to love. All the characters, all the dramas in your life, be they perceived as right or wrong, good or bad, are but the play of Spirit, the love of God, providing each soul with the experiences, the lessons necessary to first become awake, and then to become aware of and realize more of soul’s potential.
As physical beings, we yearn for an emotional love that knows no pain, rain or darkness. But God’s love never comes to save us from our pain, our rain or darkness; for these are states that we have earned through our own mis-creating. God’s love is here to see us through our pain, our rain and our darkness; and in their passing, we will have learned in greater measure what love truly is, and hopefully a lesson in how to better utilize our creative potential.
Greater understanding of God’s love enables us to accept more love, and to give more love. The limited view of emotional love must give way to the reality that God is love, love is all, and all is God. From this viewpoint, there is no action, event or circumstance that is not the love of God expressed in some way that is for the spiritual benefit of soul. Love is not something that we find; nor is it something that we do. Love is who we are. We are the love of God, expressed in the individuality, the uniqueness of who we are. In the eyes of God, we are all single wonders of Its creation. All are whole, complete and secure in God’s love...
