Did you know there is a whole kingdom of peace here on earth? You’ve probably felt it before and walked in its divine shoes. Do you know what it is and how its grace touches your life? Of course you do. It’s called love. But when do we cut ourselves off from love and how do we allow more to come to us?

Love is like a great holy river that pervades everything. It is in the tiniest particles that come from the sun, down to the blades of grass, the spiraling waters, and the air you breath. It is in the words you speak, the actions you take, and even in the things you don’t do.

It helps to realize that you are love. You don’t have to go searching for it because you are it. You were created from love and are now an extension of it. In order to bring it forth in your actions you must allow for the whole mind to function in contact with this source of love. You must think with the mind of love. You must open up your heart and let the river flow through you.

This is at times a lot easier said than done. It’s a lot easier to harvest this crop if you begin planting the seeds. First, you will want to dispel fear from your life. This is true because love’s opposite and weaker form is fear, something that breaks down mind, body, and spirit.

Then turn your channels of thought towards the streams of the soul. What I mean is, let that child from within you out by opening up your heart and creative mind. This will counter balance the usually overpowering left brain of logic and reason, ultimately giving way for the balancing of the spirit. Our hearts and creative minds call for inspiration, they are hopeful, and they seek guidance from a more powerful source. They call for positive change and they do not cling to a stagnant past of negative thoughts. With this opening of the heart and mind you will find an enjoyment in culture such as dance, art, and music. You will always know there is more to life and find a continuum of expanse, joy, and wonder. You will laugh and smile more as you enjoy life. You will become inspired within the spirit and you begin to use your imagination. You will find it feels good to be a creator and act upon life rather than having life act upon you all the time.

Somehow the laws of this great big universe allow more love to come to those that accept it, embrace it, and pass it on to others. You will not want to constrict this flow, so learn to not judge others. Learn to let petty judgment wash away from your mind. We as humans are all connected and what happens to any one of us affects the whole group, and to come this realization is to broaden your compassionate heart to the truth. And as you pass your smile onto the next, seek to build up spirits to help your brother. This is love in action. And as love passes from you to another, there is healing even in the physical body. With this mind-set you know that love is the most powerful force on earth and that it can transform anything.

As time goes on open up the doors further to the purity of life by diminishing your really bad habits. You know what they are. These are the things that hold you down. You will also want to acknowledge the creator by giving thanks to this source of love and the life you have within it. Continue to have respect for the earth and all those that dwell here and peace will be available to you at all times and return to your heart in times of need.

“Works of love are always works of peace. Whenever you share love with others, you’ll notice the peace that comes to you and to them. When there is peace, there is God – and that is how God touches our lives and shows His love for us by pouring peace and joy into our hearts…” ~ Mother Teresa
