Do You Know Love?

Love

I learned a new way of thinking about love that I had to share with you for this month’s positive affirmation, “What is God saying that you are not listening to?” These profound words were written in a letter in 1913.

What a power is love! It is the most wonderful, the greatest of all living powers. Love gives life to the lifeless. Love lights a flame in the heart that is cold. Love brings hope to the hopeless and gladdens the hearts of the sorrowful. In the world of existence there is indeed no greater power than the power of love. 

There are four kinds of love. The first is the love that flows from God to man. Through this love the world of being receives life. Through this love man is endowed with physical existence. This love is the origin of all the love in the world of creation. The second is the love that flows from man to God. This is faith. The attraction to the Divine to receive the Bounties of God and entrance into the Kingdom of God. This love is the origin of all philanthropy.

The third is the love of God towards the Self or Identity of God.Thou art God’s shadow on earth. Which means that YOU are the reflection of God in the mirror of His Creation. This is the reality of love, Eternal Love. Through this Love all other love exists. The fourth is the love of man for man. The love which exists between the hearts of believers. This love is attained through the knowledge of God, so that men see the Divine Love reflected in the heart. Each sees in the other the Beauty of God reflected in the soul. This love will bring the foundation of real unity.

These four kinds of love originate from God. It is said the greatest gift of God is Love. And it is written that God is Love. So until Love takes possession of the heart, no other divine bounty can be revealed in it. So I ask … if you know God, do you know Love? More importantly … does Love know YOU?
