20th Day of Lent
Thursday, March 15, 2012
As I let divine love flow, I create a life of peace.
Take time to practice the presence of God, the activity of love. Know that you are in love wherever you are, and that love is in you as an attracting, healing, harmonizing and totally fulfilling power. Let your awareness of love begin to transcend the exclusiveness of loving one person and thus, to heal the hurt that may persist over the loss or absence of that one person.
You can grow from loneliness to oneness but it will take effort. you will need to realize the reality of love that is always present and you will have to practice its presence. You may feel that your loneliness will give way to oneness when your "true love" comes along. Don't delude yourself! It is not in finding the right person, but in being the right person that leads to the fulfillment in love.
Hosea 6:6 For I desire steadfast love and not sacrifice, the knowledge of God rather than burnt offerings.
