Well here it is Valentines Day, that time of year when we publicly avow our love to those we hold dear. Or maybe it is a commercial endeavor by the greeting card and candy companies.
Many of you are singles, for various reasons and Valentines can be difficult….. Or we have had a heartbreaking experience that makes Valentines an awful anniversary.
It took me many years to appreciate Valentines….. Once I learned to love myself, forgive others and discover the perfect love; I began to truly understand this day. My perfect love is Christ centered. A love that comes from deep in to all humanity; even those I don’t like I try to love.
It’s hard to love our enemies, how about ISIS, the epitome of evil, or the person down the street who isn’t like me. Or that pesky person who tries to get me to think their way. How can you love someone like them?
God tells us to love our enemies and to forgive our enemies, I try each day during meditation to send blessings though out the world especially those places and to those people who I find difficult to love.
Those who may find blessings may learn to love, may themselves begin to forgive, and turn away from evil. They may learn to accept others put down their swords or barbed tongues and love in peace.
Today I wish all of you a perfect love, and many blessings on this Valentines Day.
