The Power of Love
By Fran Hafey

If you judge people, you have no time to love them
Mother Teresa

How many times has a little one come to you after falling down, with a boo-boo and ask for you to kiss it and make it all better? Did that kiss make the pain go away or was it love?

When two people are newly in love, they have trouble eating, sleeping and functioning because of "love." They daydream and float on a cloud with the feelings of love.

Love can melt the meanest heart, calm a situation, heal wounds, change minds and give hope and peace to this world.

That is the power of love.

What has love done in your life?

Do you know what real unconditional love is?

Is it that kind of love that says "I don't care what color your skin is or what language you speak, where you are from or how rich or poor you are? I just love you."

We don't always have to love the person, as we would a family member, but we need to love everyone with the loving respect they deserve just because they are a living, human being.

We may not like the way they look, live, act, or believe, but we can still love their heart and soul.

Unconditional love is not always easy. So many speak of it, but how many practice it?

I find there are many things in our everyday lives we know are good for us, but we just somehow don't do them. For instance, taking our vitamins, exercising, slowing down, getting more sleep, eating right and so on, to name a few.

Why does it surprise anyone that we may not love the way we should, to truly have a better life, filled with love and peace?

I am sickened when I watch television or listen to the radio and I hear commercials about how diamonds are a sign of love and how buying one will make you and your partner happy and love will abound.

That is so sad, that the children are being taught this message.

Have you noticed how many months now have holidays where people are "expected" to buy gifts for each other?

What is happening?

Why do people think buying things or objects makes one happy or shows love? It can, only temporarily.

I think its fine to give a gift to someone because you love them and appreciate them. But, it should be because we want to, not due to a Holiday or to convince someone to love us.

I have many things around me that I like and appreciate, but people are much more important and showing them love with the passion we do for "things" is something many need to work on.

Spending money and shallowness is not the message that needs to be shared about love.

Love is not conditional. You don't love someone for what you can gain.

We must learn to love ourselves first before we can share love with another. Many go through the motions and think they're loving.

I know I love my family and friends, but when I truly found love for myself, my ideas of love changed and grew.

Divine love is the ultimate love that we obtain when we seek true, unconditional love for ourselves and all those around us in this huge Universe.

Divine love is God love. That love deep within our soul that we find when we reach the place where nothing matters, except love.

The Divine truth, that we came from love and we must work and strive to return to love. We may have to live many lives before we reach that point where we finally find and understand, unconditional love.

Love is not just a feeling, love is an action.

Are you acting with love in your life, heart and soul today?
