It is great to think about Love and have Love in your heart and to focus on Love

in meditation. Those are the first steps in beginning a spiritual path. The next
step is to take action on those thoughts and feelings that are in your heart. It
does no one except yourself any good to just think about these things. Take Loving
action at least once a day for someone you know or someone you don't know and not
only will they be blessed by your action, but you'll be building momentum on your
own spiritual path of Love and you'll make the world a better place, one action at
a time. Doing this just once a day will eventually make it a habit. We are all
slaves to our habits. So if we have to be slaves to our habits then make them good
habits by taking Loving action. Please post a Loving action that you have taken
today! Love to you all!

A new commandment I give unto you, that ye Love one another and all the creatures
of God. Love is the fulfilling of the law. Love is of God, and God is Love. Whoso
loveth not, knoweth not God.

Jesus to the Disciples, Lection 76--Gospel of the Holy Twelve, Translated from the
original Aramaic

Love one another today. All those around you that you come into contact with.
Whether it be a family member or a total stranger. You'll make the world a better
place and increase your own loving vibration. Take loving action today. Don't
think. Just do it. Come from the heart and not the mind.

Jesus knew and understood that ten commandments were a lot for us to deal with. So
he instructed us to focus on two. The first one was "Love the Lord God with all
your heart and mind." That is the spiritual practice associated with the Law of
Love. The second commandment was "Love your neighbor as you Love yourself." That
is associated with equality, an aspect of the Law of Love. Every brother or sister
is your equal in Spirit. Love him or her as you Love yourself. Much Love and peace
to you all!

If anyone says, "I love God," yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who
does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not
seen.

Love is simple. It has to be. It comes from the heart and not the head. Feel it,
don't think it. If your definition of Love is too complicated for a child to
understand, then you are coming from your head and not your heart. True
definitions of Love come from the heart. Here are some examples:

Jessica, age 8, said, "Love is when Mommy gives Daddy her favorite part of the
chicken."

Karen, age 7, said, "When you Love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and
little stars come out of you."

Rebecca, age 8, said, "When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over
and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time,
even though his hands have arthritis, too. That's Love."

Bobby, age 10, said, "Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop
opening presents and listen."

Billy, age 4, said, "When someone loves you, the way they say your name is
different. You know that your name is safe in their mouth."

All of these children are clear about what Love is, and they answer naturally,
from their hearts. The wisdom of a child is amazing.

"Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of the Lord as a
little child, he shall not enter therein. And He took them up in His arms, put His
hands upon them and blessed them."

---Mark 10:13-16

What are your thoughts? Come from the heart and not your head. Let your mind and
your heart dance the dance of Love and you will find balance. Much Love and peace
to you!

The piano is an instrument. in the hands of someone who has never played before,
not much beautiful music is possible. In the hands of Mozart or Beethoven, the
possibilites are endless. The internet is the same. In the hands of someone who
wants to be loved or who hasn't learned to love themself first, much chaos and
mischief is created. in the hands of someone who has made a commitment to Love,
the possibilities to express that Love are endless. Either way change will be
created. That change is your choice. You have a powerful tool for change in front
of you right now. How will you use the internet today?

"I am the greatest!"

---Muhammad Ali, 1962

Muhammad Ali was the greatest boxer to ever grace the sport of boxing. He was the
greatest because he believed he was and he took action on it. He had to believe
that he was the greatest before anyone else would. Had he not believed in himself
then no one else would have either.

This group is here not only to discuss unconditional Love(God) and to show you how
to Love yourself, but also to inspire you to always think about Love and take
Loving action in your daily life. By doing so you become a more Loving person and
you, your family, and your community all benefit from it.

The greatest of all religions, philosophies, emotions, and faiths is Love. That is
an absolute. You can choose to deny it or accept it. It can bring the strongest
man to his knees and change the world in the blink of an eye. We cannot control
Love. Only surrender to it and be guided by it.

I believe that this is the greatest group on the internet today. I believe that
all the group members here are striving to make the world a better place, one
Loving action at a time. YOU are all making this group what it is today. Love is
the foundation here and I want to thank you all for making a Commitment 2 Love.
After reading everyone's posts on a daily basis for the past 9 months I can see
that you all are focused on Love, which to me is the reason for this group and the
reason for life. I thank you for this and wish you much Love and peace in 2006. To
me, you all are "The Greatest!"

"Whoever is without Love does not know God, for God is Love."

---1 John 4:8

Love is the greatest! Love is the absolute! The Greeks had three words for Love
rather than only one. Each word expressed a slightly different meaning of Love.
"Filio" was a brotherly Love, or the relationship between friends; Eros was a
sensual Love such as that between sexes; Agape was considered the highest type of
Love, a Love that was constant and unconditional. Such is the Love that God(Love)
has for us and we strive to have for others, but requires our surrender to develop
it.

Well I don't think it gets any clearer or simpler than that. This is the
foundation of this group. If you haven't already, then please make a commitment to
God(Love).

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A
time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A
time to Love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

---Ecclesiastes 3: 1, 7-8

You have a right to your actions, but never to your actions' fruits. Act for the
action's sake. And do not be attached to inaction. The wise man let's go of all
results, whether good or bad, and is focused on the action alone. Yoga is skill in
actions.

---Bhagavad Gita

If a person is forced into going to war out of self-defence, then that person must
go into the war with detatchment. He must go in focused on Loving action which is
the highest yoga. He must stay focused on Love and not go to war out of hate or
anger. Self defence or the defence of others is the only justification for war
that is in accordance with the Law of Love. There is a time for war. When sons of
God(Love) do nothing, then evil is allowed to flourish. Just as there are people
who will make a commitment to Love, there are also people who have made a
commitment to Selfishness or hate. They have hate for themselves and because of
that they project it out into the world onto others. Democratic countries are
entitled to defend themselves from agression just as a person is allowed to defend
himself or herself from physical attack. That has to do with Love for self.
Democracy is a stepping stone for the next and highest form of government which is
Self government. When people as a whole decide to make a commitment to Love, then
each individual will become self governed and live in accordance with the Law of
Love. The Law of Love is the law upon which all other laws are based. That is the
way in which a Love based society will be created.

Sex is the woman's right, not the man's. A man has a duty to give his wife or
partner sex regularly and to ensure that sex is pleasurable for her. He is also
obligated to watch for signs that his wife or partner wants sex, and to offer it
to her without her asking for it. The woman's right to sexual intercourse is
referred to as onah, and is one of a wife's or partner's three basic rights (the
others are food and clothing), which a husband may not reduce. The Talmud
specifies both the quantity and quality of sex that a man must give his wife or
partner. It specifies the frequency of sexual obligation based on the husband's
occupation, although this obligation can be modified in the (ketubah) marriage
contract.

Although sex is the woman's right, she does not have absolute discretion to
withhold it from her husband or partner. A woman may not withhold sex from her
husband or partner as a form of punishment, and if she does, the husband or
partner may divorce her without paying the substantial divorce settlement provided
for in the (ketubah) marriage contract.

Although some sources take a more narrow view, the general view of Jewish law is
that any sexual act that does not involve destruction of seed, that is;
ejaculation outside the vagina is permissible. As one passage in the Talmud
states, "a man may do whatever he pleases with his wife or partner." In fact,
there are passages in the Talmud that encourage foreplay to arouse the woman

Many times we all say and do things that we later regret because we were acting on
negative emotions or we are in a tense situation and the adrenaline is flowing. My
advice is to stop and remove yourself from the situation mentally and "think"
before you take action. Ideally it would be best to think about Love, however just
to stop and take a deep breath and think logically about the consequences of your
speech or actions would be great. This is not an easy task to do on a daily basis,
but if you just practice this technique as often as you can remember, it will
become easier with time and your world and the relationships in your life will be
healthier and happier.

This group is here to help us all heal, grow, and Love. To teach us how to forgive
ourselves for past mistakes, learn to Love ourselves, and make a commitment to
Love others whether they Love us back or not. Through the years I have come to
realize that many of my friends that I grew up with and many that I know now had a
rough childhood to say the least. Many were neglected or abused, raised in
poverty, beaten, raped or molested. Some were told they would never amount to
anything, bullied in school, never shown the Love of a parent due to death or
abandonment. Even I was beaten and molested on several occasions by a babysitter
and her friend when I was 5 years old in addition to growing up poor in a ghetto
in New York. The point of this is that if you think your alone, your not! Even
though some of us don't have the best childhoods, it isn't our fault and we can
still lead happy Loving lives if we make a choice to learn to Love ourselves and
forgive the past.

This topic is to let you know that I Love You! Whatever your childhood was like, I
Love You! Whatever your parents were like or if you had no parents, I Love You!
Whatever hurts or embarrassments you endured, I Love You! If you were abused or
neglected or raped or whatever selfish unLoving act which was perpetrated against
you, I Love You!

Now that you know that I Love You, it's time you Love yourself, and start the
process of healing and forgiveness for those people in your past who didn't Love
you because either they were never taught how, or chose not to. It's time to start
the process of healing and forgiving yourself. If I Love You, and Love(God) Loves
you, then surely you can Love yourself too!

Everyday is an opportunity for Love and forgiveness. Whether you forgive someone
for something they have done to you or against you, or you ask for forgiveness for
yourself if you have wronged someone. If someone has done wrong against you and
you do not forgive them, then they continue to have power over you. If you have
the opportunity to forgive someone, or take revenge, and you decide to take
revenge, then you haven't healed from the transgression and they still have power
over you. Forgiveness is not easy, especially if the person you are forgiving
hasn't apologized from the heart for the transgression. If I said it was I would
be lying. Sometimes the things that we do to one another are so terrible that it
takes years for our hearts and minds to heal from the trauma. But it does become
easier with practice and with time and patience. The longer we hold on to that
hurt and pain inside, the longer it eats away at our hearts and limits the Love
that can flow through us. Lack of forgiveness is like a venom coursing through our
veins, poisoning us every minute. By forgiving them and then yourself, they lose
that power over you and you are free. It simultaneously frees both the one
forgiving and the forgiven. It is true freedom and independence. Make this 4th of
July the best independence day, not just for the nation, but for yourself as well!
Forgiveness is one of the greatest actions of Love.

Forgiveness is the only gift that asks nothing in return. And so it is the only
gift that can be given and received without guilt.

I often hear people on television and the radio sometimes ask, "What is the
meaning of life?" Occasionally I hear people that I know ask me or someone else
the same question. I used to hear the question on a regular basis while taking
philosophy classes at the university. Philosophy has always been my main course in
school. Until recently, I never had a definitive answer to this question for
anyone let alone myself. However, after 39 hard years of life on this planet I
finally know the answer, at least for myself. It is actually funny to me because
it is so simple and so logical that I'm surprised that I never realized it before.
Just like the masters always tell us though, in order to understand truth, you
have to be born again and have the understanding of a child. Anyway, the meaning
of life is Love. It is that simple. It is only in this physical world that a
person can experience Love or relationship. If God(Love) is everything, then
Love(God) is singular in Spirit. It is only by splitting that Spirit into 2 or
more, that the experience of giving and receiving Love can manifest. God(Love)
must become the seeming "other" because there is no "other". Love(God) has
everything in the material world because it is from Love. The only thing Love(God)
doesn't have is our love unless we choose to give it. If we are forced to give
love then it isn't unconditional. That is why God(Love) allows us free choice. If
we make a commitment 2 Love then we manifest our life purpose which is to
experience the giving and receiving of Love.

For close to 3 years now through this group and through private e-mails I have
explained to you what Love is and what Love is NOT. Love is unconditional. Love is
GOD. Love is not religion. Religions were started with the goal of hopefully
getting people to focus on unconditional Love. However that experiment has gone
terribly wrong. Religions are now used to control people and their thoughts and
actions. Jesus or any other avatar never came to earth to start a religion. That
was done by those that came after them. In order to understand what Love IS, you
must first understand what Love is NOT. Love is not needing to "be loved". If you
need to "be loved" then you must go back into your childhood or past and discover
what incident conditioned you into thinking this way and heal yourself through it.
Sit down and talk to someone about it or meditate on it yourself. If it was
something traumatic then at some point you will need to forgive. Either yourself
or someone involved in the incident. Love is not "wanting to be loved". If you
want to be loved then you must first learn to love yourself first and become
"lovable" . No one is OBLIGATED to love you. No one is REQUIRED to love you. I
know this may sound harsh but it is the truth. You are RESPONSIBLE for providing
the love you need, no one else. So stop blaming the members of your family or
society for not loving you. It is not their responsibility. Love(GOD) gave you the
only tool you need to be loved and to feel Love. It is within your own heart. It
is invisible to the naked eye but believe me it is there. It is called the
secondary heart chakra. However whatever you choose to call it, it is your
responsibility to go within this chamber and commune with Love(GOD) on a regular
if not daily basis. Once you begin to do this then you won't need or want anyone
to love you. They will do it automatically and because they want to because they
will be able to see with their spiritual eyes that you have become "Lovable". I
know it is hard for people to take responsibility nowadays in this age of
irresponsibility. I know it would be easier to go to church once a week and pass
off my spiritual responsibility for my soul and Spirit to the pastor or priest and
let him or her do the work for me and saying thank you and giving them a tithe. I
wish it were that easy but it is not. It is a constant daily struggle to stay
focused on Love and to make a commitment to Love. But as we struggle and practice
day after day, guess what? We get better! Thoughts and actions based on
unconditional Love get easier and better. Stop looking for the easy way out, stop
looking for someone to love you, stop wanting someone to love you, stop looking
for Jesus or some other avatar to come and save you. It is time for you to start
doing the work for yourself. The world needs you to make a commitment to Love and
more importantly YOU need YOU to make a commitment to Love. Jesus and all of
consciousness is there to help you if you just take the first step. The first step
is focusing on Love and then taking Loving actions in your daily life. It is not
easy but it can be done.

When a person has not healed him or herself of a past hurt then it does not allow
them to let LOVE flow through them. Prayer and fasting can definitely open them up
to being more receptive of LOVE. If someone is not receptive then they can
definitely benefit by talking to someone and spending time with someone who has
made a commitment to Love. Those that make a conscious effort to Love and have
become strong in Spirit are a great benefit to those struggling in the early
stages of a commitment to Love. A good movie to watch which demonstrates a
fraction of the power of Love is a movie called "Perfume". In it the main
character Jean Baptiste Grenouille develops a perfume that gives him the power to
command Love and make the world love him. However Jean has not made a commitment
to Love himself, and realizes that even though he can command others to Love him,
he cannot feel that Love and he has no ability to Love them back. There is more to
the story of course, but I don't want to give to much away for those who have not
seen it. LOVE is the most powerful force in existence in this world and all other
worlds. Humans, animals, nature, aliens, (yes even the green lady from Star Trek),
insects, angels, and all of consciousness bow in surrender to LOVE. LOVE is
supreme. LOVE is your greatest ally if you will just surrender to it. You cannot
control LOVE as Jean Baptiste tried to do. You must surrender to it and let it
control you and work through you. When you do then you become LOVE's son or
daughter.
