Spiritual Awareness: Oh Divine Love

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs. 
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, and always perseveres.
-1 Corinthians 13:4-7 New International Version (NIV)

It’s February 14th, Valentine’s Day and it’s actually the first time in my life I am acknowledging it. It’s day of flowers and chocolate and gifts galore. A day designated for people to focus on another person and show their love. It’s such an important day for many people!

However the reason why it’s such an interesting day for me is because I actually feel the depth and brevity that goes with that force that we humans feel as an emotion. But I feel it like this all the time. Divine Love is what we are all here to learn. Our spirits are love in itself and basically this whole human experience is a beautiful journey to its remembrance and a spiritual awakening is the catalyst.

When I sit and reflect on love, I am completely amazed by it. Sometimes we think we only feel love when someone else shows it to us. That is true but it is only one facet of the experience. When you feel love within the absence of another person it is heart shattering. That is because Love is always around us, everywhere at all times.

Love fascinates me. I cannot tell you how many times I have just stopped and marveled at this unshakable force. Sometimes I end up just giddy all by myself when I sit and think about love! I can tell you when I have conversations with other people about love we get so high! Below are just a few of the many musings I have had when I find myself fully IN love in the moment.

Divine Love first and foremost is really quiet and surprisingly still when it’s not creating. When you think of the Source that emits love, you don’t hear a lot of noise. Love just is. Love never needs to make a grand entrance. However, when love is activated that is when you will see and hear its enormous power. Look up at the night sky and you can see the force of love. Galaxies and planets are made from love. If you sit long enough and just stare up at the heavens above you will start to feel good inside. That is the Universe saying: Look at my beauty; does it not touch your heart? The celestial bodies evoke love within us.

That power that comes with the force of love is creative in nature. The elements born in the heavens come together, create reactions and thus we see the results. Think of the love that goes into making a child. All these different biological extremes come together to form another human being. Myopic bodies merge and cells are created that form a human being. Love creates all the changes. When love is expressed and embraced you will notice changes in a person. I know this because since I have completely opened my life to the force I have grown into a broader, brighter version of myself.  I know if I show love to another person and it elicits a change in them, then I am working with the highest form of this force.

In humans we see love’s power because it has to be expressed. Have you ever fallen in love with someone and tried to keep that love inside you without expression? Love needs to come out of the closet so to speak. When people fall in love, they have a desire to start expressing it. That is the power of love and it can make you do and say some really funny things.

By the way, Divine Love does not make you crazy, it renders you absolutely sane. (Sorry BeyoncĂ©!) Think about it, is God crazy? You also cannot lie and love, it just won’t work. A person walking completely in the power of love will not lie to another person. Love and truth are synonymous. Whenever you hear love it has a ring of truth to it that will sink deep into your soul. It’s a familiar sound to our spirit because our souls are made of love!  

Divine Love works in one direction, it gives outwardly. It never needs to take, but expands when we receive love and show our appreciation for it. That is why if we are fortunate enough to feel the true essence of love we have no desire to take, just give it to another person. And if the other person opens up to love they become good and happy receivers. Here is the amazing part. As you receive love you develop a desire to give back. That is why there is no taking energy when it comes to divine love. And because love is a giving and receiving expression it does not have a feeling of need or expectation. The Source of love does not need love to feel love, neither from us nor from any other entity, because it is just Love!

Love is extremely secure in nature. God, the originator of Love does not go running around saying: “Hey! Love me! Look at me.” If you want to feel love it’s there for the experience. If you do not want to feel that, it’s okay too. That’s the beauty of freewill. If you choose not to want love, it won’t make a big deal about it. Once again, love just is, it’s always sitting there whenever or not we choose to feel it.

That is how love in also unconditional. No matter what you say or do it just loves. Divine Love is amazing in that way. It can love the best and the worst of us. Love makes the sun shine on the righteous and the wretched. We humans have a long way to go when it comes to unconditionally loving a person. How can Divine Love be expressed upon an evil person? It’s probably because it knows and sees more than we do. Okay that’s another blog post.

Love magnetizes! Have you ever watched people come together in love? Love pulls things together. It will draw unto itself people of different nationalities and backgrounds for a common goal. That is because Divine Love works the same way. We are on a journey to unification with God. That search we have for another person is in fact a search to feel oneness with God. That is why when we find that one special person it feels like heaven on earth.

Within love there are a myriad of other forces. Kindness, compassion, generosity, empathy, forgiveness, etc., all make love feel full and complete. They may appear minor but they are just as powerful. These aspects combat hate, strife, animosity and most of all fear. If you really think about it, love, that powerful force conquers all things. We just take it for granted at times.

Love creates momentum. Pay attention when you do something you truly love, it moves you and propels you to do more of that very thing. Love also incites the passion that blinds us so much so that we can get lost in doing what we love. That is why if you’re living on purpose with love as the activating force you cannot go wrong in fulfilling whatever task you put your heart to.

Love is blind in the sense that even though is sees things that we may not like we may willingly overlook them. The only thing though when you look at it from God’s perspective it is blind in the sense that he holds nothing against us. Love can be blind from a human standpoint but we still have to be reasonable. We can’t blindly love a person who hurts us. We should learn how to love these people from afar.

The Source of Life loves us constantly, it just never ends. It wants us to grow and be able to do the same. Human existence is complicated, but as our spirit grows, if we can learn how to love like that then we will be standing in the middle of our greatest fulfillment. Can you imagine loving like that without question or malice and just holding that force? In truth, as long as we are walking in flesh we probably won’t come to a full 100% ability to do so. But it would appear our spirits want us to come very close to the experience. Very few people have been able to arrive at that place. But just the adventure in trying is well worth it!

I could go on and on, but I think you get my drift. Have you ever just sat down and thought about love? I bet if you do you will come out of the experience with a new perspective and your heart expanded. We are so lucky to be able to experience something so wonderful. We should never take love for granted. It is God’s greatest gift to us.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Wishing you lots of love and may the Force always be with you.

Live the Divine Life.
