Life is…. Love

27 Jan

I believe that if you don’t derive a deep sense of purpose from what you do, if you don’t come radiantly alive several times a day, if you don’t feel deeply grateful at the tremendous good fortune that has been bestowed on you, then you are wasting your life. And life is too short to waste.

One of my favorite things to do is to go into the woods and enjoy the magic of nature. Everyday nature wakes up and surprises us with something wonderful, something beautiful and something magic, life in its fullest. I often wonder why people can’t do the same.

I’ve written before about how we all seem to live in our own world and by sharing our world with others as they share theirs with us our world’s grow bigger and hopefully better. Life is a growing experience and our sharing, with love, makes the experience so much better.

I’ve watched as some look at others as inferior and tend to hold themselves in a higher plane. I have learned over the years that although we are all somewhat different, we really are all the same. Each one of us is trying to make our path through life and each of us wants to see others succeed. What is missing is the realization that in order to succeed we all need to learn from each other for without each of our worlds, the world fails. We are the world, each and everyone of us and it’s our love that makes it grow.

So how does one get that message out to everyone? We live in a very diverse world and it is this diversity that makes it as great as it. The idea that some are better than others is stupid, to say the least, for what you lack in something they just may be very strong and where they are weak, you just may be strong. We all need each other and for those who think they know it all or don’t need anyone’s help once in a while, you just need to look into a mirror and see just how ignorant you are.

Believe it or not, in spite of all the greed and discontent in the world, love still makes it worthwhile and move forward. I believe when Jesus gave us to command to love our neighbors as our self, He meant every other person in the world. It is a big command because we tend to limit our world’s to just the area we live in. There is more to life than what we see, it’s the hidden things in life that really make the difference. Until we open ourselves up to love and offer our love to others, these hidden things will remain hidden. They present themselves to us as we share our love and world’s with others.

That simple greeting and a smile goes a long way in making someone’s day a bit brighter. It will also make your day better too.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
