20 More Truths About Love

Today’s Thought:

Love your neighbor as you love yourself. There was no fine print.

World povertyLove, not fear, is your is your natural state of being. All the great teachers have implored us to see this from time immemorial. And yet, fear casts a long shadow on our planet and in our hearts.

Yesterday’s post about replacing a fear-based world with a love-based world generated quite a bit of discussion on my Anunnaki Awakening Facebook Page. Some pointed out the challenges we have in bringing it about.

Those challenges are undeniable, but they’re not weaknesses of a love-based paradigm. They’re the result of our unwillingness to push the envelope on creating such a world. Remember, we’re not talking about the superficial meanings of love and fear in common their common uses. We’re talking about love and fear as foundational forces in the universe and foundational ways of being.

For whatever reason (this is a whole other discussion), love has been muffled here on planet Earth. Fear has been sold as the only “realistic” vision of life. Look at the conditioning in our popular culture. It’s all about being afraid. Be afraid of your neighbor. Be afraid of being “uncool”. Be afraid of being outside the norm. Most of all, be afraid to ask BIG questions. Especially those questions that are like elephants sitting in humanity’s proverbial living room – it’s past, present, and destiny.

As promised, here are 20 more truths about love to take with you today. Post these. Use them as affirmations. Begin to create the love-based world from the inside out. It starts with each of us.

  1. Love defies limits.
  2. Love never hires fear to sell it.
  3. Love is a force of nature like gravity or magnetism.
  4. Love transforms, inspires, and enlightens!
  5. Love flows freely in this universe like water in a mountain stream.
  6. Love is our teacher.
  7. Love expands us.
  8. Love and judgment cannot coexist in the same mind.
  9. Love is your core!
  10. When love is the answer the question becomes irrelevant.
  11. Love never sees flaws.
  12. Love lends us the courage to be great.
  13. The love I put out into the world returns many times over.
  14. Love listens before it speaks.
  15. Love is the light, freedom the path, empowerment the goal.
  16. Love is what happens when the real you shines through!
  17. Love is a boundless resource that flows perpetually through your entire being.
  18. Love is the ultimate affirmation.

Love That Makes A Difference in Our World

family on beach One of the greatest spiritual texts ever written is I Corinthians 13. Many people use its description of love in their wedding ceremonies. For all of us, it’s an amazing reminder of love and its attributes.

I’m going to quote it here. As I do, I want you to think about how you can expand its meaning to include not only your family and your close friends, but people across the planet. Apply this profound sense of love to people not like you, people you disagree with, and people who annoy you. I don’t believe these amazing words were written only for wedding days. I believe they were written as a roadmap for living our lives. We could all better at it, couldn’t we?

1 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.

12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Tomorrow I will share 20 more profound truths about love.

When Love is the Answer

little girl and teddy bearWe live in a world filled with questions seeking an answer. Sometimes it’s very important to find a solution and asking questions is a powerful way to arrive at those solutions. Sometimes, though, the simplest answer is the best answer. You can stop questioning and start experiencing.

Today’s quote reminds us that love is such an answer.

When love is the answer, the questions become irrelevant.

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

Poem: Opportunity of a Forever

 

 

 

 

 

 

“THE OPPORTUNITY OF A FOREVER”

Never before in time and space
has this moment come about;
never shall it come again.
our lives are built on here and now.

Only fools would let this pass
without feeling what we feel.
Let us be calm and let us be bold;
face the fears before which we kneel.

If it’s our past that holds us back,
then let us create a new future.
One where joy fills our hearts
and these feelings of ours mature.

If it is failure we most fear
then let us be filled with trust.
Knowing within that nothing is lost
by honestly expressing our love.

Love Is The Ultimate Affirmation – The Affirmation Spot for Monday February 15, 2010

Some of you will remember the great Leo Buscaglia and some may ask who? Dr. Leo Buscaglia was a motivational speaker before everyone was a motivational speaker. This long-time special education professor at USC was famous for his passionate belief in love and the potential of human beings.

Today I am sharing the final two parts of a 10-part video posted on YouTube of Dr. Buscaglia speaking in Wisconsin some time during the 1980s. The speech was called Love: The Ultimate Affirmation. The video is dated, but the message is as fresh and needed as this morning’s headlines.

Rumi Poem: The Meaning of Love – The Affirmation Spot for Sunday February 14, 2010

Rumi was a 13th Century Persian poet and Sufi mystic. His poetry has attained iconic status in the modern world for its passion and insight into the human condition. Love was a common theme in his poems. This Valentine’s Day I am featuring one of his greatest love poems.

Lines from Rumi love poems are quoted in the newly released movie Valentine’s Day.

Happy Valentine’s to all the lovers out there.

The Meaning of Love

By Rumi

Both light and shadow
are the dance of Love.
Love has no cause;
it is the astrolabe of God’s secrets.
Lover and Loving are inseparable
and timeless.

Although I may try to describe Love
when I experience it I am speechless.
Although I may try to write about Love
I am rendered helpless;
my pen breaks and the paper slips away
at the ineffable place
where Lover, Loving and Loved are one.

Every moment is made glorious
by the light of Love.

Stay inspired and stay in love!

Ray
