February and Valentine’s Day remind us that love is the greatest power in the Universe. As Charles Fillmore, co-founder of Unity, said, “In Divine Mind, love is the power that joins and binds in divine harmony the universe and everything in it; the great harmonizing principle known to man.” Even though the weather seems unpredictable these days, one thing you can count on is the power of love in your life.
I don’t know if this has been your experience, but it has been mine. There were times in my life when I had no idea what was meant by “the power of love.” In college classes, I was taught that romantic love is nothing more than the result of chemical reactions inside the chemical soup that makes up the human body. Love seemed to be the source of pain more than of joy. Imagine my surprise when I walked into Unity of Dayton and felt the kind of love Charles Fillmore was talking about…Divine Love!
As we each continue on our spiritual journey, I believe that we grow into a greater awareness of Divine Love. Though romantic love may fall apart, the universe and everything in it is held together by Divine Love! And to experience that ever-present, all powerful Love, all we need do is remove any barriers to it that we’ve held in mind-any unwillingness to allow ourselves to be expressions of Divine Love.
What Would Love Do Now?
In difficult conversations, quietly ask yourself, “What would Love do now?” When you’re filled with critical thoughts or negative emotions, take a breath and remind yourself, “I want to feel good. I want to feel Divine Love.” When faced with unwanted circumstances that feel overwhelming to you, affirm this spiritual Truth, “Divine Love is transforming this now.” As you remove all barriers to Love from your mind, Divine Love will rush in and fill you up.
I am so grateful to be walking this spiritual journey with you. As we are transformed, we are transforming the world. Together we let Love lead the way.
Much love to you,
