Everyone seems to be talking about love these days. It is an important word for our existance on the planet. Love, the favorite word of Cupid and one that drops easily off of our lips. Just what does it mean? Well, there is the Hallmark sense and family sense. I am writing today about love in a much different and bigger sense. As sentient beings, we throw the word around easily. What the world needs now, is love sweet love.
Love means so much more than we think. It is the reason we care about the survivors of the Oklahoma tornadoes and Hurricane Sandy. It is the reason that we care about the millions of abused women and children in the world. Love is why when we hear of a young woman having to endure genital mutilation or an acid attack that we care.
Love is why we make beauty in this plane. We plant millions of flowers, raise vegetables and plant trees. Love for our environment is very important. I think that raising some of your own food, increases the love you give to yourself and to others. Taking a bouquet of home grown flowers to a friend strengthens the love between both of you.
Love is inclusive. Real love will embrace everything in your world. Love doesn’t exclude anyone or anything that comes firmly from the Beloved. The Beloved dwells within all living creatures. To love does not mean that you agree with everything someone says or does. The tricky bit is that we are all children of the Universe. No matter what we say or do, we carry Divinity within us. Love encircles and brings goodness. It grows as it is spread around. It transforms as it is shared. It heals wrongs like an anti-biotic cream.
Fear has nothing to do with Love. It is exclusive of love and it can’t be healing like love is .Fear makes us judge others who are different in their looks, skin color, religion and in how they love. Fear contracts the sphere of our lives and it can even cut us off from people who love us. There is no way that love and fear can dwell together. A person who has brown or yellow skin is not different than you are. They are the same except for the color of their skin, that is all. Divinity dwells within that person also.
Fear within our hearts and souls leads away from God, and there is no right way to worship or love God/Goddess/ Adoni/ Allah. Fear destroys and love creates. If we could all conquer fear, we would have peace in our world. So I ask you to try it and see what happens. See if you don’t find yourself enveloped in love.
“It is time to put up a love-swing!
Tie the body and then tie the mind so that they
swing between the arms of the Secret One you love,
Bring the water that falls from the clouds to your eyes,
and cover yourself inside entirely with the shadow of the night.
Bring your face up close to his/her ear,
and then talk only about what you want deeply to happen.
Kabir says: Listen to me, brother, bring the shape, face, and odor of the Holy One inside you.”
—Kabir; this wonderful poet was an Indian and the son of a weaver. His poems were influenced by Sufi poets.

Thank you kind sir. You are very special
I am glad to see you back posting. Now sit a spell & stay awhile please.
I have been writing. Just missed yesterday. Will tell you that I am going into hospital for a 5day EEG. I go in this monday. Am taking my iPad so I think I will try blogging from there.
5 day EEG. My prayers go with you. Be safe and return to us in good health.
Thank you. You should have some fun next week.
Enjoy the award and I believe you will need the award room way before I do
Well I’ll build us both a new reward room.
Careful, I’ll take you up on it. LOL
I’ll get my hammer & saw
I think Zimmerman is not going to pay for his crime. It saddens me because I think he was out looking to be the big man. A neighborhood watch to my knowledge just is supposed to keep a eye out and then call the police. Not shoot someone.
You have been quiet. Going to see Fleetwood Mac tonight. Monday the hospital.
I’ve been sleeping mostly today, got game 2 of the Stanley Cup Hockey Finals tonight at 7 PM. How long will you be in the hospital?
I will be in for 5 days. The concert was smoking hot. They are better than ever.
Glad you enjoyed yourself. We all need some fun in our lives. 5 days huh. Well if possible, keep in touch.
A very Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads in your life, from TheObamaCrat™

It really rocked. Fun,fun, fun. Full house. I felt 40 again.
Well I always thought you were 40. 😯
Oh, sorry to disappoint you. Forty was a good time. My grands say I never grew up and I didn’t. I don’t believe in ever growing up completely. I love life more than ever. It hasn’t been an easy untroubled life but I had so many blessings. Every day is an adventure of one sort or another.
I’m not disappointed at all. I like that you are enjoy your life. Good to have your inspiration around. 😉
And just hoe old are you? I love meeting people like you on the Internet. I am lucky now to have friends all over the world. I learn something from everyone I meet. You have encouraged to really state my truth more than I have in awhile.
I am 53, be 54 in October. Truth is what this world needs.
Needs but doesn’t want to hear. Take care of yourself.
U take care of yourself, and hurry home on Friday.
Am hanging out in hospital. I am good just wishing I was home.
I am wishing you were home as well.

A very fine piece. Thank you for sharing it.
Hope the EEG results are okay!
I always loved that old soul song about “The Love Train”…
Love can mean different things to different people. I also observe people talk about love with no understanding of what it is. I read a text attributed to Socrates about a debate on love between characters, many definitions but no absolute definition.
I think love is magic and luck sometimes. And sometimes just pure beauty.
