This month we are focusing on Love. Not just the romantic love, but all-encompassing love. Love is……… self-love, love of family, love of friends, love of animals, love of mankind, love of nature, love or music and art, and of course the romantic love. Love motivates us to be a better person.
What do you find that you love and what can you give to that love. I think love softens us, makes us more accepting of all. Love is the center of the Universe. Love is the Energy of the Soul. Please share your miracles of love with us in this discussion.
“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”
We are having a special event letting our friends and family know how much we love them, Check it out here.
I am currently in a wheelchair and looked after by carers. I woke up this morning feeling great love and gratitude for the work these carers do. Despite being stretched and overworked they always have a smile on their faces. Rather than feel sorry for myself and the fact that I cant walk at the moment I was just enjoying the moment.
What a beautiful gift to wake up to. It's true, these caregivers are real angels on earth. My mom has been through a major illness in the past year which required her to be in the hospital 3 times and have follow up home nursing care after each. It was amazing to see how these folks made it to her even in the worst weather. And to hear of how many of them risked their lives during Hurricane Sandy, here on the East Coast, to get to their patients - that's love! Wishing you blessings and healing, and love.
Bless you, Arielle, for being such an inspiration. I so appreciate that you are able to look beyond your situation and discomfort to see the hearts of your caregivers. And by receiving their love, you are also giving back to them. Wishing you many more miracles in the days ahead.
I like to think of love as the glue that holds the universe together. Here's to every kind of LOVE in February and always! xo
Miracle of Love from Beyond the Grave
I was watching a movie last night called "Made in Heaven." It's all about eternal love, death and heaven. (free on youtube and well worth a watch) There is a scene in heaven where they are creating new toys, and they feature this pink wind-up mouse that does a back flip...
I caught my breath when I saw it! I have collected toys for years, and the last toy my husband gave me before he died was that exact same mouse! Somehow, it felt like Chris was sending me a message that only my heart could decipher.
Thanks Elly Rose! In case you have trouble finding it, here's part one to get ya started: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWd8WWzkq2Y
Love it, M~
What a beautiful experience for you. Thanks for sharing. I know that Chris was certainly very close and wanted you to know how much you are loved. That is an awesome story!
Thanks Helen! It felt like such a miracle!
