What if Love Powers The Universe?

What if it is LOVE that powers the universe with an energy that sustains and nourishes everything? I think it’s what the new physicists are struggling to describe with different words because the word “love” has been cheapened, diluted and stuffed into syrupy cards, fairy tale romances and television commercials. And in our world of logic and measurement, the word “love” is just not substantial enough.

What if LOVE is a force like gravity or the wind? What if it keeps the planet spinning and causes birds and butterflies to migrate? Love, as a creative impulse, ALWAYS leads us toward genuine connection, balance and wholeness. War, poverty, jealousy, fear, competition and division are expressions of the resistance to LOVE. This resistance creates suffering.

Love is operating at full power now as everything that resists LOVE is being called out from the shadows.

LOVE is a pulse that beats through everything we know. It is pointing out what we can’t see, so it can be healed and transformed. It is operating at full power now as everything that resists LOVE is being called out from the shadows. This is happening out in the world, and inside ourselves. Countries are dividing, relationships are failing. LOVE is diligently enticing us to observe, be curious, and awaken. Seen from this perspective, this is a time of love’s light revealing what is stuck and has been festering under a thick cover of darkness.

Hating or fearing  the darkness won’t make it go away. It only blocks the light.

LOVE keeps knocking on our door asking us to wake up. Unfortunately, it isn’t easy. There is so much blocking LOVE’s creative power that we have grown used to living without it. Our collective resistance to LOVE is greater than our ability to act as if LOVE is all that matters. LOVE keeps tapping, though. If we embrace the creative power of LOVE, we get new opportunities to see how and why we resist, miss or try to use love to feel superior.

Powerful stories about LOVE have been told by poets, musicians and freedom fighters. Atheists hid Jews. A Palestinian gave a kidney to an Israeli stranger. A lone man stood in front of a tank. Elephants in Africa are being protected from poachers. Weeds instead of lawns are being grown for bees. Women are leaving men who power over them. LOVE is being expressed in many ways. Sometimes at great risk. But what is more important to defend than LOVE?

The point of being human is to get better at LOVE.

The point of being human is to get better at LOVE. It isn’t one-size fits all. Everyone is capable given their ability to choose either to wake up to what LOVE is showing them (no matter how painful), or to be dulled by denial and resistance. Welcome the light of LOVE as it pierces the darkness. What has been hiding in ourselves and in the world, is being revealed with big, red, blinking lights.

We can’t heal what we can’t see. Take full advantage of this powerful opportunity to witness and awaken to LOVE, as a vital force that powers cells, stars, beauty, gravity and the human heart.
