Let Love Shine

Dear Friends,

Happy February and happy Life to you! This month we celebrate Love—with very good reason, for Love is the greatest expression of Life there is! A century ago, Thomas Troward defined for us these Seven Qualities of God: Life, Love, Light, Power, Peace, Beauty and Joy. (Longer lists have been compiled—a case could be made for adding Harmony, for instance, although I believe it is implicit in Peace and in Beauty. I like the conciseness of this list.)

How can one best celebrate Life with Love? Let’s change one word: We celebrate Life AS Love. We BE Love. Again, the how question arises: “how do we do that?” We can celebrate the easy answer to that question, because we don’t need to find or create or become love; we already are Love. Troward’s list points out that Love is a natural element of who we are, for each of us is made in the image and likeness and out of the substance of God.

We already are love. What we need to do if we want to express Love is to let it shine, as our old Sunday school song says: “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine!”

Let Love Shine

All that is necessary to express Love’s powerful and healing energy is to remove from our thinking anything that disagrees with it. As we replace our thoughts of judgment, lack and its accompanying jealousy and competition, anger and resentment, we will find ourselves naturally floating in the Allness of God’s Goodness; the seven qualities will be showing up in our individuated, personal lives!

When we live AS love and compassion, we live in peace—and in vital, personal fullness!

Be kind and be well,
