Let Love teach you what You are.

Love has...freed me. Happy Valentine's Day!


I have learned so much from God

that I can no longer call myself

a Christian, a Hindu, a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Jew…

The Truth has shared so much of Itself with me

that I can no longer call myself

a man, a woman, an angel, or even a pure soul.

Love has…freed me

of every concept and image my mind has ever known.

14th-century Persian Sufi poet Hafiz

I can so relate to the words in this poem as I too, have learned so very much from God. In the stillness, God reminds me, and you, of our true identity as creations of a Source of light, laughter and love.


I especially love the line, Love has…freed me. Yes, awareness of Divine Love as the guiding force in my life, has freed me in so many ways. I am free to choose love over fear, peace over anger, and happiness over despair. Every day I ask Spirit to help me be not just a “clanging cymbal” or a loud noise, but an expression of Love.


Through our willingness to serve in love, we are transformed. We return to the remembrance of our perfection as Love perfects us through service to our fellow humans. I’ve discovered that God changes us while we are being used. We don’t have to wait to get it all together, all we have to do is be willing to let Love set us free. Love sets us free to look upon one another beyond classifications of religion, race, sexuality or gender. Love sets us free of seeing one another through the lens of fear and hate. And Love works in and through us in service to one another.


If you feel that you have not been given enough love, decide today to be a giver of Love. It sounds simple to decide to be a loving person, but of course, we know that it is not. You don’t have to love everyone today; instead, each day; decide to love one more human being. Hold a door open for someone, smile at another, a “thank you” to someone else. Love need not be complicated.


The ultimate goal of humanity is to love one another. Your consistent willingness to choose love is the pinnacle of spiritual maturity. It’s the mountaintop, it’s what you are here to learn. You won’t learn to love over night, you’re not supposed to. Learning to love is the task of a lifetime.


God is not looking for perfect people to do his work. If so, let’s face it, he’d have a very small work force. Every one of us is needed. The love of God can only be extended on this earth through people who become willing to extend it. Take this idea seriously and you will come to know that Love truly is power – and, it will set you free.


And so as you go about your life this week, recognize that the time to love is now. If not you, who? If not now, when? Each day become willing to ask and heed the question, “How can I love today?”

Love will begin to permeate and embrace your life. Practice love on purpose as if your life depended on it, it does.
