What Does Love Look Like?

Love doesn’t always say what we want to hear.
Love isn’t always the pretty picture we want to see.
Love may not always be nice or sweet or gentle.
Love may firmly say “No” or “Stop” when it is for the best of All concerned.

What love does is hold the best intention for all.
What love does is include trust and respect into every encounter.
What love does is allow people to be who they really are.
What love does is invite people to feel safe to express what they want and need.
What love does is respond with wisdom, direction and confidence.
What love does is stop hurtful and harmful interaction.
What love does is forgive what has been and open the door to what can be.
What love does is create win-win solutions.
What love does is remember the intrinsic Goodness within everyone.

Love is giving everyone the space to choose again.
Love easily forgives and moves on.
Love answers the call for Love with ease and gratitude.
Love is willing to play the part that will be most help.
Love is patient and gives itself freely and consistently over time.
Love does not change course or waver over time.
Love speaks up to stop harm and prevent guilt and blame.
Love believes in the Being and forgive the doing.
Love knows and trusts in the Essence, the Source, within all creation.
Love is the answer, no matter what the question.

Trust what is in your heart. Forgive everything else.

“Love is real. Everything else illusion.” ACIM
“Only Love prevails.” Carol Hanson
“The only mistake we ever make is when we forget to Love.” Betty Lue

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
No disease that enough love will not heal;
No door that enough love will not open;
No gulf that enough love will not bridge;
No wall that enough love will not throw down;
No sin that enough love will not redeem.

It makes no difference
How deeply seated may be the trouble,
How hopeless the outlook,
How muddled the tangle,
How great the mistake.
A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all.

If only you could love enough, you would be the happiest
and most powerful being in the world.
