A Love Story
Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived; Happiness, Sadness, Anger, and all the others, including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all repaired their boats and left.
Love wanted to persevere until the last possible moment. When the island was almost sinking, Love decided to ask for help. Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said "Richness, can you take me with you?" Richness answered, "No, I can't. There is a lot of silver in my boat. There is no place here for you."
Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. "Vanity, please help me!" "I can't help you Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat," Vanity answered.
Sadness was close by so Love asked for help, "Sadness, let me go with you." "Oh....Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself."
Happiness passed by Love too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her!
Suddenly there was a voice, "Come Love, I will take you." It was an elder. Love felt so blessed and overjoyed that he even forgot to ask the elder his name. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went his own way.
Love realizing how much he owed the elder, asked Knowledge, another elder. "Who helped me?" "It was Time," Knowledge answered. "Time?" asked Love. "But why did Time help me?" Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, "Because, only Time is capable of understanding how great Love is."
Who are we? What are we made of? I look at us as a divine triune. With this experience of life, we are one part physical. This makes up what you see here now and is what you first see when you look at any living thing. This is a temporary house for our soul and spirit. This is the only part of us that does not transition to the spiritual plane. This is where our EGO lives. Second, we have a soul. This to me is an etheric spirit body that may look it an exact replica of my physical body. The soul and its energy work with Time, Knowledge, and Truth. And inside this soul body is our spirit. I like to picture this spirit as a glowing ball of beautiful color and energy, bright and shiny and completely made up of unconditional love, God's Love, Spirits Love, Infinite Love, The universe of love. This truly is where all love exists. I can say with confidence and truth that each and every living thing has this. The Spirit is the part where all people are a piece of the divine source. When we project an emotion, that emotion moves is in our physical mind and body only. It has been said many times by many spiritual coaches that we have emotions but we are not our emotions. Emotions are a temporary experience. Emotions are what we carry at the moment that we are in or the moment of thought of the past or the future. But true growth and understanding are when we take these experiences and emotions and devise knowledge, understanding, truth, and patience. It is there that love lives, love survives, and more importantly, love thrives. May your month and all future months be led with love.
