December at CSLDallas
Fanning the Flame of Love
This December we are Fanning the Flame of Love as we realize that the Power we have been igniting within us all year is, in fact, the power of Love. Not just romantic love, or the love between family and friends, but the Sacred, Divine Love that is the heart beat, the life blood, the very nature of the Universe Itself.
Science of Mind defines Love as “Spirit’s self-giving of Itself into all of Creation.” This means you are love in action. Spirit loves so much that it gives all of what it is into and as each and every one of us. You are already loved because you are constantly gifted with the Love of Spirit. Your living from love makes Spirit manifest in the world through everything you say and do.
Mystic and evolutionary scientist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin wrote, “Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, we will have discovered fire.” All year we have been discovering that fire within ourselves and each other. Now it’s time to Fan the Flame into a roaring Beacon of Light and Hope.
Sufi mystic and poet Rumi wrote “Love is the soul’s light.” Our love is the light that shines truth and goodness into the world. It is also a beacon of Light which calls others to be their most spiritually aligned selves.
The Buddha taught “Radiate boundless love towards the entire world — above, below, and across — unhindered, without ill will, without enmity.” Reminding us that the Power to manifest and create is always coupled with a benevolent Presence.
Jesus, the great Way-shower and Master Teacher reminded us the only two laws we truly need to live by, of the two great commandments, “Love God with all your heart, soul and mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.”
All month we will be exploring how this Flame of Love has been fanned throughout the ages through the various holidays we celebrate at this time of the year. We honor and acknowledge that every faith and spiritual tradition adds another layer to our understanding of this Sacred and Divine Love. Rather than focusing on each holiday’s rituals, we will be weaving them together into a powerful story of the awakening of humanity to the Power within, the Power of Love. Every Sunday plus Christmas Eve we will go deeper and soar higher in Love, so you won’t want to miss even one.
