Self-Giving Love!!!

Self-Giving Love!!!

October 18, 2012 

The highest form of Love for me is Self-giving Love. It’s the Love that comes from our Higher Self that part of us that is one with God. Unlike the EGO, this Love is not self seeking, it isn’t always “me first,” It is not easily angered, doesn’t fly off the handle, it keeps no record of wrongs, it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres, love never fails and it’s available to us always, in all ways.

Just think about it…..that’s the way God loves us. God is always there for us no matter what.

So….as I was sitting in the silence this morning and thinking about about love, I was humbled beyond belief….I realized that this topic is way tooooo big for me to write about….. then, by the grace of God, I get the following message from Fr. Rohr.

THE GOOD NEWS

Feast of St. Luke, Evangelist

The Gospel cannot happen in your head alone. You never think*yourself into a new way of living. You invariably live yourself * into a new way of thinking. The gospel is about relationship and lifestyle. Unless there is someplace on this earth where it’s happening between you and another person, I don’t believe you have any criterion to judge whether it’s happening at all. Unless you’re in right relationship with at least one other person on this earth, unless there is some place you can give and receive love, I don’t think you have any reason to think you’re living the gospel. Is there at least one place in your life where you are giving and receiving love? If it happens in one place, it can happen everywhere. If you are truly capable of loving one person, you’re capable of loving more than one, and eventually even your enemy, and finally all. Love is one piece. Love is all or nothing. You either express love or you don’t. The flow is either outward or it is inward. Luke illustrates this most especially in his unique and utterly subversive presentations of the “Good Samaritan” (10:29-37 [1]) and the “Prodigal Son” (15:11-32 [2]). 

*Love can not happen in your head alone!

*Live in God and you will live yourself into a new way of thinking.

Feed your soul with Fr. Rohr’s writing for awhile. See where it takes you. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments negative and/or positive.

 Remember to feed your Soul often….

 Love and Blessings,

Anne
