Each morning, my goal is to meditate and pray with more integrity and purpose than the day before.
This morning, I reflected upon an opening statement from Hillside International Truth Center’s February 2021’s Daily Thoughts from the Hill. The statement that is highlighted in the headline of this post is a great centering point.
In the name of our ancestors, peace to all.
| Namaskar!(The Spirit in me greets the Spirit in you!) The spiritual faculty for the month of February is LOVE, and the physical center is the heart. The disciple is John. The color for the month is pink. Love is the idea of Universal Oneness in Divine Mind. Love is the harmonizing power that brings the world together. Because of the attribute of love to bind, attract, cement, and equalize, we see the Divinity in every person and in all situations. In the face of unrest, discord, and division, it is important that we focus on Love, the great Unifier.|
In the words of Rev. Don Nedd, “The basis for right thinking is love- love of GOD and all that is good in ourselves and others.”The inner voice of love wills us to experience happiness, joy, peace, and forgiveness as a means of finding another way to believe in and see the world. The consciousness of GOD loves everything and everyone equally; we are all loved and forgiven by our Creator. Jesus said, “A new commandment I give you, that you love one another; just as I have loved you, that you also love one another” (St. John 13:34).
Love is a great filler. It fills our senses throughout life. We can find it in the taste of good food that we share with family and friends, our elders, and those that are homebound, indigent, or homeless. We can hear it in great music and the inspiring words of Dr. Maya Angelou, John Lewis, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Bishop Dr. Barbara King. We can feel love in caring for others and seeing the enthusiastic look on their faces.
We can see love and joy as we celebrate our ancestors and our history through the eyes of our children. We can smell love through the aromas of nature, as we breathe in fresh air, the cleansing water of rain, and the fragrance of flowers and trees. Love is the beautiful manifestation of the presence of GOD in all things. As we celebrate the power of love, let us listen to the inner voice of love for lasting happiness and peace of mind. This month focus your attention on devoted service, kindness, unselfishness, tender compassion, and goodwill towards all. In so doing, we embody the attribute of Love– as we are one with GOD, one with all life, and one with all humanity.
“And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love” (1 Corinthians 13:13).AFFIRM: I am a love magnet that attracts health, wealth, and happiness.
