“Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.”
“I give you a new commandment, that you love one another.” (John 13:34)
Agape is the Greco-Christian term referring to unconditional love. In Christianity it refers to love that comes through God or Christ to humankind.
Charles Fillmore, our co-founder, writes in The Reveling World that “loe is an inner quality that sees good everywhere and in everybody. It insists that all is good, and by refusing to see anything but good it causes that quality finally to appear uppermost in itself, and in all things.” He also wrote that “love is the great harmonizer and healer.”
Love is an energy that calms and sooths our nervous system. I recall being in the hospital in 2015 and engulfed in a sense of fear. Thinking “will I ever recover from this?” I got really quiet. In fact I was so quiet I could not bring myself to speak to the doctor, who then sent me for another MRI. Afterwards, back in my room, I received a message, an inner voice that said “Stop, and let me heal you.”
In that moment I realized that Lawnwood Hospital was a healing organism. No, I thought, it went deeper than that. I live in Love, which is the healing energy everywhere present. That I am always surrounded and infilled by the Holy (whole) Spirit of God, as we all are.
A practical application of expressing the power of Love is to love yourself so much that you See yourself doing something which you have held in your heart. Why? Because entering into the energy of love before you apply yourself to learning or doing anything supports us in moving through mental barriers, error thoughts, of thinking that something is too hard or “I just can’t do it.”
We’ve all heard whatever you put your mind to you can accomplish. When your heart and mind are of one accord, your intention, purpose and expression are aligned, your joy is complete for Love will lead and light your way.
Love, Love, Love,
