What does it mean to submit to the Power of Love at the very core of who we are? Why do we spend so much of our energy fighting or denying the Power of Love? What might happen if we just stop (the fighting, denying, judging, etc.) and allow ourselves to settle down into the deep and abiding Power of Love that is the very core of who we are? I am Love.
Instead of “I am dust and to dust I shall return” (which is what we affirm on Ash Wednesday and every time we pour out the ashes of someone we loved just before their memorial service) we said instead, “I am love and to love I shall return.” Both are true, but we tend to focus more on the dustiness of life rather than on the Love. I’m going to make a concerted effort in the weeks ahead to have as my mantra: I am Love and to Love I shall return.
