Daily reflections, Day thirteen, Need not think alife to love alike
Need not think alike to love alike
“Miracles are a kind of exchange. Like all expressions of love, which are always miraculous in the true sense, the exchange reverses the physical laws. They bring more love both to the giver and the receiver.” T-1.1:1-3
Francis David, the Unitarian pioneer, said that we need not think alike to love alike. It is this loving alike which is miraculous.
When we love another, we also experience the love in ourselves. It is the Love of God which is passing through us to the perceived other and it reinforces the Love which is within us of which, when we extend it, we become even more aware.
It is like singing in a chorus or telling a joke when the audience laughs, our efforts are reinforced and amplified.
The miracle is the shift of our perception from separation to Oneness. It is in this shift in our perception from separation to Oneness that we feel more whole, fulfilled, complete, and it brings a sense of joy and peace.
Today, intentionally share a loving thought, word, experience with another and see what happens to the other and to yourself.
