It is often said that all humans just want to be loved. We can talk about love as a series of chemical interactions in our body but that’s just an interface for something deeper. We seek the source, a bonding together in oneness where there is no fear, no separation, no lack, no discord. Many religions describe the sacred divine as pure love. Spiritual practice and evolution itself seems to progress forward through the energy of love. Our songs go on to tell us love is all you need.
If you’re feeling stuck, unsure, unaware or distracted by too many different paths and potentials and responsibilities, just quiet your mind and feel from your heart. Love won’t steer you wrong, as long as the love you know is pure and hasn’t been distorted in your mind into something it is not.
I wish upon you pure, perfect, deeply (and infinitely) satisfying love.
One of the greatest passages on love comes from 1 Corinthians 13:
1 If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears.
