I Have Decided to Stick With Love

 Love is the master key that opens the door for healing,  harmonizing, nourishing, connecting, caring, enriching and uplifting. Love indeed i invokes the God Light, the God Truth and the God Peace in all of us. All traditions of wisdom, all highly evolved spiritual teachers all over the world have taught us the healing power of love by their examples. All of us have been blessed to have parents, siblings,friends, neighbors, teachers, farmers, workers, innovators, care takers and even strangers who have given us taste of unconditional love occasionally or on a consistent level. They  are living examples of the kind of love Martin Luther King Jr is talking about so eloquently. Simple acts of kindness touch our hearts with love.Our thoughts, words and actions that harm us and harm others, deprive us and others from benevolence, hurt us and hurt others perpetuate the cycle of hatred and suffering. No violent actions are justified by quoting the name of God or by righteousness. History is full of wars fought in the name of God and by believing and stating God is on our side. And seeds of peace and good will are also planted and blossomed by people who relate to others like their sole brothers and sisters.

I myself and many others whom I know well have been blessed by having people who have showered their love on us on a regular basis. When I offer my service to others selflessly, I smell the fragrance of love, the taste of kindness, the sweetness of compassion and the touch of divinity. Usually, such acts happen. I do not plan them  in advance.Being human, I run into helping hands when I need help. And people run into my helping hands when they need help.It is an everyday happening. My cup of life is filled when I reach out and help others and also when people reach out hold my feeble hands.

May we cultivate loving kindness in our hearts and create connectedness within ourselves and others by offering and receiving gifts of love!

Namaste.
