If you judge people, you have no time
to love them
How many times has a little one come to you after falling down,
with a boo-boo and ask for you to kiss it and make it all better?
Did that kiss make the pain go away or was it love?
When two people are newly in love, they have trouble eating,
sleeping and functioning because of "love." They daydream and
float on a cloud with the feelings of love.
Love can melt the meanest heart, calm a situation, heal wounds,
change minds and give hope and peace to this world.
That is the power of love.
What has love done in your life?
Do you know what real unconditional love is?
Is it that kind of love that says "I don't care what color your
skin is or what language you speak, where you are from or how
rich or poor you are? I just love you."
We don't always have to love the person, as we would a family
member, but we need to love everyone with the loving respect they
deserve just because they are a living, human being.
We may not like the way they look, live, act, or believe, but we
can still love their heart and soul.
Unconditional love is not always easy. So many speak of it, but
how many practice it?
I find there are many things in our everyday lives we know are
good for us, but we just somehow don't do them. For instance,
taking our vitamins, exercising, slowing down, getting more
sleep, eating right and so on, to name a few.
Why does it surprise anyone that we may not love the way we
should, to truly have a better life, filled with love and peace?
I am sickened when I watch television or listen to the radio and
I hear commercials about how diamonds are a sign of love and how
buying one will make you and your partner happy and love will
That is so sad, that the children are being taught this message.
Have you noticed how many months now have holidays where people
are "expected" to buy gifts for each other?
What is happening?
Why do people think buying things or objects makes one happy or
shows love? It can, only temporarily.
I think its fine to give a gift to someone because you love them
and appreciate them. But, it should be because we want to, not
due to a Holiday or to convince someone to love us.
I have many things around me that I like and appreciate, but
people are much more important and showing them love with the
passion we do for "things" is something many need to work on.
Spending money and shallowness is not the message that needs to
be shared about love.
Love is not conditional. You don't love someone for what you can
We must learn to love ourselves first before we can share love
with another. Many go through the motions and think they're
I know I love my family and friends, but when I truly found love
for myself, my ideas of love changed and grew.
Divine love is the ultimate love that we obtain when we seek
true, unconditional love for ourselves and all those around us in
this huge Universe.
Divine love is God love. That love deep within our soul that we
find when we reach the place where nothing matters, except love.
The Divine truth, that we came from love and we must work and
strive to return to love. We may have to live many lives before
we reach that point where we finally find and understand,
Love is not just a feeling, love is an action.
Are you acting with love in your life, heart and soul today?
