Above all else, you will begin to love the person you see in the mirror every day. The false perception of victimhood will fall away, and the victorious nature of life and living will become your new way of operating in the world.
In defeat, there is a tendency to close down and be judgmental. When we get down on ourselves, it is easy to forget that the Divine is continually rooting for us to get back up and make the most out of the next opportunity to move forward.
The radiance of love's eternal light gives rise to the universe. The goal of love is to overcome separation, to bridge gaps, to bring the two lovers together as one. If love is to do its work, people must recognize the light and love it in return.
When we don't realize that love is a recognition of the divine through another, we falsely attribute the source of love simply to that person, when in fact what we really want is more experiences of transcendence, of God.
God is not a force who acts on the world through coercion, violence or the suspension of physics and free will. God is a verb, an action we bring to the world to make love, justice, mercy, joy and goodness known.
Whether you are with your loved one this Valentine's Day, or on your own, you can be celebrating Divine Love. What is Divine Love? How it any different from regular old love? And how can you celebrate it?
