Love - The Only Reality

Day 14

The Only Reality

Love is a language which is universal, interpreted through every living soul and understood by all. Love will find the solution to every problem, will answer every question, and will ultimately vanquish every foe. Love begets tolerance; tolerance begets understanding, and understanding which is able to put itself in the other person's place.

Love is unity, understanding, harmony. It is as necessary to the well-being of the soul as food is for the strength of the body. A life which is starved of love, which knows no affection, is unnatural and abnormal. Love would sit within every person, flowing through and permeating one's entire being. We truly live in its atmosphere when we meet people through whom love radiates. A unity is formed, harmony is created, and we desire to be in their presence.

Love is a synonym for God; and God is love, the universal outpouring of the Spirit through law, wisdom, life and action. God knows us in love: we know God only through love. When we love humanity we are loving God, in and through others.

It is impossible to enter a state of peace without love. Love is the only reality there is.

Ernest Holmes (January 21, 1887 - April 7, 1960)
Founder, Science of Mind

So much of this reminds me of Marianne Williamson's Return to Love teachings.
Thank you.
