Love alone is Life
December 7, 2016
That’s a phrase from a poem by Mary Baker Eddy. (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 387) It’s not only a powerful statement about God, who is both Love and Life, but about existence – life itself – that is most effective and useful when it’s powered by love.
Love makes the best relationships. It satisfies the most needs. It redeems even the most awful conditions. And it lifts its giver and receiver high above fear and hate and loss. Not just when the sun shines, but in all kinds of weather.
The life that is filled with love is happy and safe and progressive. And it is also the most necessary kind of life.
Live in love. Let every moment of your life be love expressed.
The final phrase of that poem mentioned above says that life most sweet, as heart to heart speaks kindly when we meet and part.
That’s the kind of love worth living. That’s the kind of life worth loving.
