Love Fulfills the Law
Romans 13:8-10…Love Fulfills the Law
8 Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. 9 The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.
What is Love?
Un-Conditional Love is the Answer?
Okay… What is Love then? When we say we are “in love” with somebody or something your love depends on the object of your affection. It is conditioned by it, therefore this is conditional love.
If you love Un-Conditionally, you love everybody and everything equally. You cannot hide your love. You cannot not communicate it, for Un-Conditional Love is the energy of communication. Just as a shining star cannot hold back its rays, you cannot hold back your Un-Conditional love, when it shines, it shines.
Every experience we are going through gives us an opportunity to learn Un-Conditional love, for every experience contains within itself one or more aspects\dimensions of Un-Conditional Love.
Love yourself Un-Conditionally first. You cannot love others Un-Conditionally if you do not love yourself Un-Conditionally first. You can not give that which you do not have. “No matter how hard one searched one could not find anyone in the Universe more deserving of love than oneself.”
“To love yourself” and “to be selfish” are two opposite concepts. Selfishness or ego-centered consciousness is self-destructive. It is a low frequency state of neediness and low self-esteem. Loving and caring about ourselves, feeling compassion for ourselves & rising in love with ourselves and staying in love must become the way.
“Love your neighbor as thyself” is the Master’s advice. Meditate for a while on this mighty statement. The philosophy of life is contained within this short phrase. Can you see it? “As thyself” implies that you already love yourself before even a thought of loving your neighbor has crossed your mind. See?
As a candle must burn to shine, when you love yourself you are in a state of loving\shining\burning. This energy makes you feel good, your aura is so strong and vibrant, you are at peace. Your frequency field is powerful and harmonious. You are becoming like the sun, shining brightly, and everyone around you is bathed in the rays of your love. When you love yourself an overwhelming scene of well being becomes your natural state. Cherish and treasure this feeling; like a tender flower, nurture it, until it becomes strong. Watch how you are becoming stronger as your flower grows…feel it!
