Reading & Meditation Love by Rev. Christine 2/13/2022
Today I’ve selected a reading by Emmet Fox on Love.
“Love is by far the most important thing of all.
It is the Golden Gate of Paradise.
Pray for the understanding of love, and meditate upon it daily.
It casts out fear. It is the fulfilling of the Law.
It covers a multitude of sins. Love is absolutely invincible.
There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
no disease that enough love will not heal;
no door that enough love will not open;
no gulf that enough love will not bridge;
no wall that enough love will not throw down;
no sin that enough love will not redeem.
It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble,
how hopeless the outcome,
how muddled the tangle,
how great the mistake;
a sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.
If only you could love enough, you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world.”
1John 4:16 “God is love, and he that abide in love abides in God and God in him.”
Meditation on the attribute of Love.
We will now move into meditation. I invite you to get comfortable, relax, and turn inward to your sacred temple.
God Omnipotence, is the one and only true power that is everywhere present both invisible and visible. This power is love, an all powerful unconditional love. Love is the essence of all creation. Therefore love is my true essence. I am an expression of God’s love. Therefore I am one with this all powerful creative love.
God’s love is unconditional, therefore I love unconditionally. (repeat)
All of creation is a wondrous outburst of God’s love. God can only bring forth like itself - love - unconditional love. All of life is infinite spontaneous expressions of Divine Love; beautiful, unique creations joyously expressing life. Divine love therefore sees beauty in its expressions. Divine Love sees the unique goodness, intelligence, and harmony of all life.
Love is the glue, the invisible invincible substance that binds all creation; both invisible and visible. Every proton, neutron, atom and cell is love, and is united in love. Every thought and heartbeat is empowered by love. Every helping hand is driven by love. All life everywhere is an expression of pure love. Love is the power, the unity and the life of all creation. I am joyously living in Love.
We’ll now move into the Silence...
As we bring our attention back, we give thanks for this realization of love. Thank you God.
I invite you to open your eyes, and stretch a little, and be fully present in the here and now.
