Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – What If Love Is The First To Speak? When I began to meditate on this question, my heart opened and its silent communication spoke louder than my personal “reality,” my ego. The great spiritual teachers suggest upon awakening the first thoughts are focused on our Creator, our Father. This means we are focusing on Love to start our day, because God Is Love. Love is a state of mind, of our heart, that beholds the world from the harmony of our Higher Created Self, a freedom from our personal “reality” chattering selfish, self-centeredness. Love speaking from our heart first is an attitude characterized by calmness, and a faithful trust, even when we are faced of trying conditions. “…Love cast out all fear.” Practicing A.A.’s spiritual principles in all our affairs is Love, opening us to a larger vision of life. We are able to extend unconditional love to those who still suffer, at some point all of us suffer, but love is a healing power that brings us back to wholeness. We may receive our love by faith, and then work it out in all our affairs, at all levels of consciousness. With those we are more patient, kind, generous, humble, and unselfish, in other words we find ourselves doing and being loving in our ordinary daily life; it does not have to be a special event, but it could be. Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
