Love. Let me count the ways! There are many many kinds of love but the one that really matters is unconditional love. Like the love I have for my sons and their families, my brother and sisters, a few very close friends. It is totally complete and completely unconditional. Do we always agree on everything? No. Do we like every single thing about each other? No. But there is nothing they could do that would make me stop loving them. When I realized, truly knew and understood, that God loved me in just the same way, it was one of the happiest days of my life.
Do I love everyone? I work really hard at it. And it's become easier once I understood I could love the Spirit, the true self, and not like the person. I discovered the more love I give, the more love I feel. The more love I feel, the more love I receive. The more love I receive, the happier I am. The happier I am, the closer I feel to God. The closer I feel to God, the more love I'm able to give. A wonderful, exciting, circular journey.
