I learned this from don Oscar Miro-Quesada.
The first direction of love should be to yourself, from this all else evolves.
St Paul stated that the love is the greatest above all other human experiences
He also stated that we are all connected and important to the whole; like a limb to a body.
When we realize that we are significant and take value in our part of the whole, then we can live in freedom, fearlessly, with hope, and filled with love for one another.
In order to serve another, we must first come to the end of ourself that is attached to a particular outcome.
There is a flow to all living: the wind, the water, the blood. It is in this flow that life exists in its best state. When the energy, life force is disrupted then breakdowns occur. We are a sum of all the parts and of all our experiences, environments, education, emotions, and energies. Listen to the song of your heart, it’s a conglomeration and unique. Don’t be afraid to sing, to share. You are a piece of the symphony of life and we need you. Find your voice and let it rip in love.
Nothing else quite ties us to earth, from a heavenly perspective, as relationships.
We can be flying high and boom, a thunderbolt cracks and hits near our feet. We are not struck, mortally, but impacted within: a shuddering, a gut punch, an ache.
I look up to the clear skies, sun dappling the large leaves above my head. Did they notice the bolt that electrified my heart? Did they tremble as tears welled in my eyes? Their calmness, gentleness caress my senses. They do tremble in the almost still breeze with sweet empathy. The spider casting its web says, “It’s ok. This too shall pass.”
There are responses – whether in the right or in the wrong, whether misunderstood or overstepping another. One is to love fully, completely, always. The other is gratitude – communication when it comes from a dear one is precious and like it or not – there are always lessons to be learned.
I am open. I am vulnerable. I am love.

Well being is a result of function, not an intellectual pursuit.
It is connecting with the intelligence of the universe. A place of silence beyond your memory. It is an experience of knowing your inner self and reconciling it with your physical. A blending so that friction is gone and ease is common.
Miracles exist today just as they did in time of Jesus. As a young person, I was perplexed by the thought that miracles only existed during a certain period of history. Today the revival of miracles is showing forth. They have never ceased to exist, most of us have just been unaware of them and thus don’t expect them.
