Believe in the power of love

Don’t you just love people? People are inclined to help others, to help animals, and to help the earth. I know it’s not all of them, but it’s a bunch. If you were to find out that somebody’s house burned down, would you send that family a dose of your good, strong energy, and then set about doing whatever you can to fill their sudden needs? I think we should all do that. After all, we’re in this together.

If you find out anybody has any kind of emergency, if somebody’s child is suddenly ill or in trouble, or even if their dog or cat or bird dies, I hope you will do the same, and I hope I would take action too. And, speaking of animals, we should all act with love toward them, too. Dogs, horses, and birds are the personifications of love. They do not judge. They just love you. I’m sure all pets are like that. So go hug and kiss your pet right now.

And go kiss and hug your daughters and your sons. They are the best you have to offer the world. They were brought up according to your beliefs and with your philosophy. Always let them know you are proud of them, and of their children as well. What could be better than watching your loving child be a good parent to his or her own child?

Instill compassion. Condition them to love first and foremost. Make it natural for them to act with compassion and to love everything, even mosquitoes. Make it natural for them to know that they control their own destinies, and that they are powerful. Equip them the best you can for this life. That also works as a good reminder to you of what is true and important. Live that truth. Strive to be fully present in the moments of your life.

Believe in the power of love. I think it is the strongest force in the universe. I truly believe that God is love. And if the creator of all things is love, why would you want to be otherwise?

So go out now and be loving. Be love, and take the love of the universe and God in return.
