Love is the self-givingness of Spirit through the desire of Life to express Itself in terms of creation.
~ Ernest Holmes, Science of Mind, p. 608
When we look at the multiple human aspects of love and remember they are all generated by God’s Love, we can relax into deep enjoyment, rather than nervous expectation. Understanding that old ideas about relationships may limit our greater appreciation for truer love to flow, we can begin to release thoughts of even exchange, obligation, or possession. It is when we choose, rather, to give unconditionally of our love and care, not looking to the other for filling our personal needs, that we enter more deeply into the Divine Love that gives of Itself to all humankind.
There exists a deep wellspring of Love within us all, and, once we have ceased seeking it outside of ourselves, It seems magically to fill and fulfill every human relationship and experience. As we mature spiritually . . . and we are all on this evolutionary path . . . we eventually become sweet and powerful conduits, generating loving connections wherever we may be. Let’s be and become this clear, radiant instrument of Life’s longing to express Itself fully and completely.
While Rev. Mike, Elyse, and I attend the Annual Centers for Spiritual Living Convention in Denver next week, our Practitioners will offer Sunday’s Celebration, with Sara Funk offering thoughts on, “Love Is” and the others participating in the many important roles of the morning.
Each Sunday at 9:45 A.M., the Prayer and Meditation Room upstairs opens for those who wish quiet, contemplative time prior to our 10:30 Celebration, and one of our Practitioners leads meditation from 10:00 to 10:20 A.M. Join them to begin your morning in a sweet, sacred way.
With great love and appreciation,
– Dr. Maxine
