Love’s Coming Out Of Hiding “Pay Forward” # 238

I greet The Indwelling Presence of Love.

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is - Love’s Coming Out Of Hiding.  God is the only subject that more songs, stories, books and poems are written and talked about than love.  Love like our Creator, has a great many agents, channels, and forms, ever expanding.  I like to offer some useful tools, for the next few days, to deal with love.  Love has been and still is the second most important and fulfilling thing in my life, yet I cannot get enough receiving or giving of it. Love has many types, shapes and sizes.  Agape (Spiritual Love – God is Love), Storge (Affection – Nurturing), Philia (Friendship), Eros (Being in Love – Romance), Primal-love (all-inclusive expressions), and Self-love (the least understood).  And, characteristics we commonly use in our daily lives: Patience, kindness, generosity, humility, courtesy, unselfishness, good temper, good sense of humor, innocence, and sincerity.  Most of us have tried to generalize love as though one love fits all. Perhaps the most harmful misunderstanding is that self-love.  All relationships are expressions of love, but often we need the Eyes to see beyond the appearance, and this vision comes to us by grace.  These little affirmations could help us, to be open to grace.  Let us remember even for an instant, to realize that we were/are created by Love, for love, to express love, the appropriate love with whomever we are drawn to.  I pray our affirmations for the next few days, prove to be useful.  Thy Love, Thy Will be done.
