I love valentines, hearts and everything about love because God is love and when he created us, he formed us from his love!
For higher growth, God sent us to earth to acquire this attribute for ourselves. To become greater beings of love, our understanding of love had to internalizeómeaning to become a part of our essence and soul. This can only happen through experience. On Earth, what love we gain is tested to the nth degree! By the time we think we have learned it all, something develops to further our testing. As we learn what true love is not, we will learn what pure love is and come closer to loving unconditionally as God loves us.
Acts of kindness are acts of love. When I witnessed my life review, I saw that the simplest acts of kindness to another created great ripples of love. This vision filled me with great joy when these ripples of love returned to me. I was stunned at how simple it is, that if we are kind, we will have joy! Acts of kindness are prompted by the Spirit of God felt in our hearts, and thus are born from God's purest love combined with our ability to create ripples of love through what we give to others.
Jesus is the perfect example of love which bursts forth from him with a brightness that can only be seen with eyes of the spirit. As my own spirit ran to him, the golden halo within his magnificent aura actually reached for me and drew me to his embrace. Though limited by our mortal experience, we all can lend our energy to others, much as Jesus did when he shared his light with me, rejuvenating me, filling me, strengthening me and healing me.
I use the word "lend" because when we share our energy with another, it should be for a time. When someone is in need, we can help sustain them by supporting them as we lend our energy. We then help them find their strength to go forward and let go, so that we do not begin to enable their weakness. We want them to be dependant upon God, not upon us. "Lending" our energy to another suggests giving for a time. We don't want to interfere with God's guidance in someone else's life, but for a moment in time, we can be the crutch they may need to lean on until they find their strength and way again.
If we listen to the Spirit of God, we can never go wrong. His Spirit is the warmth we feel, that fills our heart when we are tuned in to him. It sometimes can feel like a divine orchestration of music that uplifts us, leading us, guiding us, communicating God's will directly to our soul. When Jesus communicated with me I felt his voice vibrate inside me, and my heart was like an instrument that his words played upon, resonating to the depths of my very soul! It was like a music within, similar to what is felt when we connect with the Heavenly Father's Holy Spiritóand as with mortal music, as we practice, our skill increases. The more we listen for the Spirit of God, the more "in tune" we become, recognizing these promptings within our heart.
When we listen to the Spirit, we do kind deeds because that is the music that is playing within our soul! We feel the warmth of God's love and naturally want to share that love with others. God's love is supreme and it is the only energy that truly heals. It is through the power of his love, that when we are connected to him, we are healed and able to help heal others.
To love, in the purest way, we must first recognize and develop the love already within us. Every fiber of our soul was created by God to love and to generate more love that we might become pure love; the purest energy that both creates and heals. What a blessing to know that within you lies the purest of love in embryo, that, it is without beginning or end. Uncover it by opening to love's possibility and trusting its ultimate purpose.
All my love,
