Imagine lighting a candle in a dark room. The light doesn’t have to push against the force of darkness. The darkness simply fades away. It cannot be in the same space as light.
Love is like that. Bring a bit of Love into any situation, and the darkness will disappear. Love is the energy and divine power of the Divine. In its presence, there can be no fear, no sadness, no hate, no impatience, and no frustration.
Love has many children. The light sends out sparks. They are trust, faith, generosity, hope, kindness, belief, openness, humility, and truth.
Take this idea with you today. There is a line in Conversations With God, by Neale Donald Walsh that asks, “What would Love do?” This is to be applied to any problem. Whatever the issue or struggle, just ask, “What would Love do?” It really is that simple.
When frustration or anxiety start to darken your spirit, add a little Love. Spiritually step away from the thing that is causing you distress and take a moment to think about how much you Love your family or how much you are Loved by God. That person that is driving you crazy at work probably has someone that they love very much. They too, just like you, are a beloved child of God.
Send thoughts of Love to the neighbor on your street that hates everyone, to the rude woman in the grocery store and the teacher who was unfair to your child.
Send thoughts of Love to the one that broke your heart.
A simple thought, powered by pure Love, is enough to drive away every darkness.
Jonathon Lockwood Huie said,
“Darkness is not a force–
merely the absence of light.”
Furthermore, the light of Love is contagious. Often a kind word from me can cheer someone else’s day and they, in turn, may reflect God’s Love to others. You really can make a difference in the world, just by letting your light shine.
Have a beautiful, blessed, Lovely day!
I Love you all!
