Where love hides.....

Expressions of love are physical boosts to our immune system, they lengthen our DNA strands and induce a veritable cascade of chemicals that just make us feel great. One would assume that this free gift to ourselves would be embraced as the most valuable of assets. Instead we go out of our way to eliminate love from almost all aspects of our waking reality. It begins with our thoughts, most people if honest with themselves would admit that the majority of their thoughts are negative. The ego produces these thoughts so it is no surprise that the tail is wagging the dog. When we find ourselves in the company of strangers, say on transit going to work, we tend to stick to ourselves. Instead of sharing love we are more concerned with protecting the 2 feet of invisible space that is our sanctuary. Rarely do we extend anything other than indifference to our fellow man. Even with friends at work or in the community we tend to spend much more time exchanging negative thoughts than choosing to express love. In fact expressions of love are so rare that most people have lost the grace to accept love. For example if you hug someone and kiss them they had better be a family member or your expression will not likely be well received. So how have we managed to get ourselves into such a state? Simply put we are choosing to be unconscious. When we let the ego run our mind and body we fall into habitual expression. Much like a robot we go about the day unaware, fulfilling rituals that are well ingrained into our consciousness; wake, work, eat, T.V., sleep. We are not driving the car, we are being driven, and the ego is a bad driver. If we are to have any chance of driving to paradise we need to grab the wheel. When we remain vigilant as the observer of our thoughts and actions we can choose love in every moment. Work is not the same work when performed with love in our heart. A moment of love is always a perfect moment of now, it will heal all which separates you, it will give you strength and joy. Any moment can be just that if you want, after all it is free choice.

  1. Love is from the infinite, and will remain until eternity.
    The seeker of love escapes the chains of birth and death.
    Tomorrow, when resurrection comes,
    The heart that is not in love will fail the test.
