have always hesitated to write about Love as there as been so much
written about it from a myriad of angles. I personally would
never write about romantic love since I am not an authority on that
aspect of love at all. However, I have learned and experienced a
great deal about spiritual love and the Love that Is G-d. And
that is what I want to share with you in this message.
power of Love begins with the recognition of the truth about
Love. Love is the nature of G-d expressing through creation, all
creation, and our use of this part of G-d's nature must be an
expression of our desire to create more good; health, success,
creativity, awareness of abundance and more. The use of G-d's
Love to heal, to prosper or to receive a blessing is simple once we
have the awareness that there is nothing to oppose Love. This is
not always a realization that comes easy for us as most of us have
accepted the opposites of Love's omnipresence and omnipotence.
Yet, the powerful nature of truth will support us in this realization
if our desire is sincere and heartfelt.
is no love but God's - Love
cannot judge. As it is one itself, it looks on all as one. Its meaning
lies in oneness. And it must elude the mind that thinks of it as
partial or in part. There is no love but God's, and all of love is
His. There is no other principle that rules where love is not. Love is
a law without an opposite. Its wholeness is the power holding
everything as one, the link between the Father and the Son which holds
Them both forever as the same."

is a law without an opposite" is the foundation of using Love for
healing of the physical body. This is something that came to me
at a time when I was becoming frustrated with a physical
healing. I was guided to a book written by Emmet Fox in which he
writes that when we send and speak love to that part of our body that
appears to require healing, that the healing will come with grace and
ease. It is as simple as placing our hand on the part of the
body that appears to be ailing and feeling the love of the Spirit flow
through us. I have personally witnessed this to be true many
times. Can I explain how it works? No. I only know
that it has worked and will work for anyone who is willing to turn
from the thought of illness to a concentrated focus on the healing
power of Love. As we have read in The Course in Miracles, it is
"the link between the Father and the Son" ... in other
words, between our Creator and Its creations, you and me and everyone
and everything. It is the secret Power and effects of Love.
is the Spirit of Infinite Love. The moment we recognize
ourselves as one with it we become so filled with love that we see
only the good in all. And when we realize that we are all one
with this Infinite Spirit, then we realize that in a sense we are all
one with each other. When we come into a recognition of this
fact, we can then do no harm to any one, to any thing. We find
that we are all members of the one great body, and that no portion of
the body can be harmed without all the other portions suffering
When we fully realize the great fact of the oneness of all life, that
all are partakers from this one Infinite Source, and so that the same
life is the life in each individual, then prejudices go and hatreds
cease. Love grows and reigns supreme. Then, wherever we
go, whenever we come in contact with the fellow man, we are able to
recognize the God within. We thus look only for the good, and we
find it. It always pays.
The Persian sage has said, "Always meet petulance with
gentleness, and perverseness with kindness. A gentle hand can
lead even an elephant by a hair. Reply to thine enemy with
gentleness. Opposition to peace is sin." The Buddhist
says, "If a man foolishly does me wrong I will return him the
protection of my ungrudging love. The more evil come from him
the more good shall go from me." "The wise man avenges
injuries with benefits," says the Chinese. "Return
good for evil, overcome anger by love, hatred never ceases by hatred,
but by love," says the Hindu.
Not to love is not to live, or it is to live a living death. The
life that goes out in love to all is the life that is full, and rich,
and continually expanding in beauty and in power. Such is the
life that becomes ever more inclusive, and hence larger in its scope

key, so to speak, to using the power of Love, is to recognize it as
omnipresent and omnipotent. It is what created us, infuses us
with Its Spirit, renews us, refreshes us and transforms us at the
moment we identify It within us and within everyone and everything.
SO IT IS!
