| How to Manifest a Culture of Love
Choose to Love.
If parenting, practise Attachment Parenting!
You are only alive if you emanate love. It’s so easy to practise! For instance, when no one is looking, lift your right hand high and project all your love to the whole universe, to the stars, to the angels and archangels, saying: “I love you, I love you, I want to be in harmony with you!” And in this way you form the habit of always emanating something vibrant and intense, you become a living source, a source of love. (O.M. Aïvanhov)
We can do no great things, only small things with great Love. (Saint Mother Teresa)
It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love is put in the giving. (Saint Mother Teresa)
Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love. (Martin Luther King Jr.)
Thomas says she tries to do something to break down racial stereotypes every day. No grand gestures - she thinks that small, regular acts of kindness are more important. "The biggest thing you can do is just be kind to another human being. It can come down to eye contact, or a smile. It doesn't have to be a huge monumental act." (Keshia Thomas, who in 1996 courageously/kindly protected a man from an angry mob, cited by BBC, posted and accessed 29 October 2013)
Go beyond reason to Love. It is safe. It is the only safety. (Thaddeus Golas)
People are people and we all are different on the outside, but on the inside the foundation is the same. Having a good heart and loving, caring soul is what is important. We need to be kind to each other or at the least respectful of each other. (Andrea Philbin, posted and accessed 30 June 2016)
Gradually I have come to believe that spirituality is found in the way we live our daily lives. It means spending time thinking about others. (Christopher Reeve cited by Geoffrey D Falk, accessed 12 March 2014)
M Scott Peck considers that love is not a feeling, it is an activity and an investment. He defines love as, "The will to extend one's self for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth." (Wikipedia, accessed 27 December 2015)
The first law is to love the Lord. This is the future of humanity. (Beinsa Douno) [Substitute whatever word means 'the Lord' to you, e.g. 'God', 'Goddess', 'Great Spirit'.]
Working according to the laws of wisdom and the methods of love – that is the programme’, said Master Peter Deunov. Wisdom indicates the ideal we must work towards, and this grand programme will keep us occupied for all eternity. To achieve it, we must adopt the methods of love, by living each minute consciously and very attentively. The laws represent fixed points by which we orient ourselves, and the methods are our tools. The methods of love allow us to achieve the grand aims of wisdom. Those who believe they can attain wisdom while neglecting love are mistaken: they will wither away and turn to dust. There are numerous methods of love – they enable us to first make exchanges with the whole of nature through breathing, nutrition and contemplation of the rising sun; followed by exchanges with human beings by showing kindness, generosity and patience; and then exchanges with the divine world through meditation and prayer. (O.M. Aïvanhov)
Do not be afraid to love. Remember dear old Don Quixote, viewing the world with love. He saw many beautiful things no one else saw. Try being dear Don Quixote for a day. You'll see that love improves your vision and allows you to see more than your eye has ever seen before. But be forewarned: Those who look on the world with love will need a handkerchief, not to use as a blindfold, but to blow their nose and dry their tears. (Bernie Siegel, MD)
Let yourself be silently drawn
By what you really love.
To paraphrase something the anthropologist Ashley Montagu once said, the way I change my life is to act as if I'm the person I want to be. This is, to me, the simplest, wisest advice you can give anyone. When you wake up and act like a loving person, you realize not only that you are altered, but that the people around you are also transformed, because everybody is changed by the reception of this love... (Bernie Siegel, MD)
Why do you limit yourselves to the contacts you make on the physical plane with human beings? There are other beings to encounter in the universe and with whom you can establish relationships. Every day you have the option not only to link yourselves with the spirits of light who populate the universe, but to draw them nearer to you. So address yourselves to them, ‘Come, celestial friends, come make your dwelling place in me.’ You can also add, ‘Lord God, Divine Mother, Holy Trinity, all angels and archangels, servants of God and of light, my entire being belongs to you; make use of me for the glory of God, for his kingdom and justice on earth.’ Pronouncing these words is an act of consecration and in doing so, you invite the celestial spirits to come and dwell within you and you place yourself under their protection. If you do not know how to invite the celestial spirits, do not be surprised when other entities, in no way celestial, come and establish themselves in you without waiting for an invitation! It is up to you to decide who you want for inhabitants. (O.M. Aïvanhov)
