Notes From The Awareness: 246

Without love, nothing works.

Please discuss. How does this play out in life?

I’ll start us out. We often tend to think of love in terms of romance–the attraction, desire, and fascination we feel for a special someone. Yet there are so many ways to love. The Ancient Greeks had six separate words for love, to differentiate the various types: Eros (sexual passion, Philia (deep friendship), Ludus (playful love), Agape (love for everyone), Pragma (longstanding love), and Philautia (love of self).

In a larger sense, divine love is the stuff of creation. All that is is interwoven in a web of loving, divine consciousness. There is nothing and no one that isn’t created out of and interconnected in love. Our understanding breaks down and life seems risky and difficult when we forget this essential truth.

Today’s message reminds me that whenever a situation seems hard or an individual presents challenges (including me), applying love—whatever form of love I feel is appropriate—will make things easier. At the very least, the conscious conjuring of love will shift my vibration into a more positive mode. It’s also likely that the recipient of my love will have a positive response to caring, recognition, and respect. The Beatles: “Love is all you need.”

How about you? Whom or what do you love and how has that changed your life?
