Love is an act of endless forgiveness
A tender look which becomes a habit. Peter Ustinov
Love means to commit oneself without guarantee, to give oneself completely in the hope that our love will produce love in the loved person. Love is an act of faith, and whoever is of little faith is also of little love. Erich Fromm Love grows by giving. The love we give away is the only love we keep. The only way to retain love is to give it away. Elbert Hubbard
Love knows no reasons,
love knows no lies.
Love defies all reasons,
love has no eyes.
But love is not blind,
love sees but doesn't mind. Unknown
Since love grows within you, so beauty grows.
For love is the beauty of the soul. St. Augustine
So what is love? A word so often used in spiritual circles, in religions and in all kinds of organisations as well as, of course, on a personal level. But just what is it? We all understand that there can be a physical attraction an infatuation that leads to sexual intimacy. Then there is the type of love that you may have for a child, a parent, a peer. Yet there is also a deeper expression of love. When you hear energies like mine saying: 'Send out unconditional love', what are we really saying?
At the finest level of your spirit, each one of you emanates an energy that has a harmonic resonance, and that harmonic resonance is love. So when you meet another person, a situation, another form of evolution such as an animal, a bird, a rabbit, a flower, a tree - for all of the Great Spirit's divine creations have a harmonic resonance even the rocks and the air, and the harmonic resonance of creation blends with your own resonance. Not only people, even a horse, a dog, a cat, a duck, will respond to you in a very special way and you will respond to it in a very special way. There is be a blending of this harmonic resonance between you, and you feel it raise the energy vibration in both of you.
So this resonance can manifest on different levels, the finest being the harmonic resonance from the higher Self, the spirit itself. The important thing is that the simpler the resonance, the finer and deeper it will be. The more complex and structured the resonance, the more difficult for it to exist on those finer levels. Now it is quite important to understand this because when you are endeavouring to send thoughts of unconditional love, you are trying to harness, acknowledge, recognise, feel that unconditional love within you - a love without judgement, and allow it to radiate from you as an offering. The essential aspect is that you are placing no condition on how it may be received. In some areas it will be received in a loving way and it will enhance love in your world as well as other areas, depending on the purity of your own thoughts - and here we go to the other end of the polarity - it can create confrontation. That is the nature of evolution. For if love is conditional, you are not allowing the recipient the choice; it can become manipulative, it may well produce a polarised reaction from the recipient because you are trying to tell some other energy how you think it should be thinking, doing, behaving.
Whereas, tuning into the finest in you, where there is no judgement, and sending out your harmonic resonance, your unconditional love . . . . this has a much wider implication. If you can work towards loving unconditionally, it is a form of offering to the highest level of a person or group of people; and it is the freewill of their spirit or group spirit that will respond or not respond, as it wishes.
You know quite well, deep within you, that there is only a single magic, a single power, a single salvation...and that is called loving. Well, then, love your suffering. Do not resist it, do not flee from it. It is your aversion that hurts, nothing else. Hermann Hesse

I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit. Kahlil Gibran
