Love is the fuel that propels us through life.

It is the fundamental essence of our being,

as necessary to our survival as food and water.

There is no escape from love.

It is above and below, it precedes and follows.

It is within and without.

It is the invisible thread that binds mankind.

 

Every action, every emotion, stems from love.

Respect, understanding, tolerance, compassion

are all manifestations of our love for others.

Self-respect, pride, dignity, contentment

Are the measure of love we have for ourselves.

To love oneself is not to be vain or conceited,

for the denial of this love

will result in anxiety, fear and self-doubt.

 

Hatred is not the opposite of love,

but merely a by-product of it.

It is a weapon that our ‘self-love’ uses to protect itself,

but it is a self-destructive weapon

and should be discarded as such.

 

Hatred should never be considered as equal

in power to love, for it never will be.

Hatred can be overcome, love cannot.

Hatred closes the door to our heart,

love is the key that opens it.

 

There is no such thing as ‘true love’,

for love, in any form, is true.

We cannot be lovelorn, loveless or lonely.

It is only the perception of love that is lost,

love itself is ever present.

 

Love is given freely and returned tenfold.

It is a sacred gift and as such, should be treasured.

It is meant to be learned from, relied on,

drawn from and acted upon.  

 

Love is a universal force that flows around us,

through us and from us.

You are love, I am love, and love is never-ending.
