I recently lost a loved one – my mother – a sketch that I did of her in her memory above.
It is a heartbreaking experience as many of you will know. I know when I lost my father – he was quite young – I just wanted the whole world to stop to acknowledge that we had lost someone very special. My Mums passing was not as unexpected and although a very difficult time I was more able to surrender to the reality of our physical life and know that what we call death is not the end. Love is always and eternal. It has helped me to know that the love never dies.
Love is never changing.
Love is a field – we can feel it and choose to live within it.
Love is impersonal and does not play favourites.
Love is never uncertain.
Living for love is a choice.
A Course in Miracles Lesson 127 says “perhaps you think that different kinds of love are possible….. It is like itself, unchanged throughout….Love cannot judge…. And it must elude the mind that thinks of it as partial or part… Love is law without opposite. Its wholeness is the power holding everything as one. If you achieve the faintest glimmer of what love means today, you have advanced in distance without measure and in time beyond the count of years to your release…”
We touch love in our lives through our relationships and we can reach that state at any time within ourselves through the practice of meditation. Love can elude us and seem to lie outside of time and space but in meditation we find that we can ‘know’ it at any time and it cannot be held back from entering our time and space dimension. When we give up our resistance and limiting beliefs we enter the field of love. ACIM states “For 15 minutes twice today escape from every law in which you now believe. Open your mind and rest.”
What is your definition of love? Could meditation help you to redefine it from a place of true knowing?
