A Life Of Love

25 Nov

A life of love…

Absolute solitude puts you on a precipice, the very edge, if you will, of a two edged sword, perched between life and death, the yin and the yang , the heavens above and the earth below. It is here, the very essence of life, where life itself takes on a whole new meaning. Harmony, love, trust and faith in, with and around your fellow man step up and take a leading role in the meaning of everyday life. It takes a unique balance of all of these to maintain human relations in our complex world. The pressures put on us by our social peers, for lack of a better word, tend to drive us all in opposing directions from the center of life’s true meaning.

When reading these lines, take the time to ponder on what they mean to you. Your world will open up to you and show you new ways to love. For we all know life is too short, yet we waste so much of it in one conflict or another. Wouldn’t it be so much easier if we learned to take those conflicts as life lessons meant to share our light and love with each other?

Grandfather always reminded me:

Love doesn’t make the world go around, but it sure makes the ride worthwhile.

Love is something that has many definitions, yet we all seem to look only at the ones that make us happy. Sharing your life experiences, good or bad, can make someone else’s life a little easier for the simple reason that what you learned working through that conflict can be the answer that helps another person cope with theirs. Maybe that is why Grandfather always told me to learn from the mistakes of others, for you don’t have time to make them all yourself.

Harmony, love, trust and faith interweave and merge throughout our worlds to the point that one can barely distinguish the end of one from the beginning of another. It is done with such balance that each one will compliment the others in the dynamic state of our ever-growing worlds. Four separate feelings, each with a virtue in itself, all sharing a common beginning. They are interdependent on each other to help maintain that delicate balance of what we call life. This unshakable bond created from this common ground is the center of our worlds ….the heart.

Happiness… begins in the heart. Then it grows on the words we share with others, on the wings of birds in flight, and on the pedals of all our flowers. This is what love truly means – to share and happiness is truly a joy meant to be shared. I guess when you tie it all together life has no meaning without the love we share, for it is the sharing that makes it grow.

A life of love begins when we accept the fact that we have to release our personal prejudices, we all have some, and realize we all need each other to make it worthwhile. It all begins with that first smile, word of kindness, or the gentle hand you offer someone in need. Are you willing to take that first step?

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
