A collection of inspirational wisdom, sayings and quotes on the subject of Divine Love.
Divine Love is not human 'romantic' love. It is of a spiritual nature, it is all-encompassing and unconditional. Divine Love is often attributed only to God and/or spiritual beings. Yet as we are all sparks of the Creator (the Divine), and as the Creator IS LOVE, we are therefore also Love - Divine Love is who we really are, yet in our human state and using mostly only our five senses, we have forgotten this and we perceive other people and animals and nature as 'separate' from ourselves. But we are all made of the same 'stuff' and are all therefore "ONE and all connected. This is confirmed on a scientific level with Quantum Physics.
It is our perception of separateness that causes all the woes we have in this world. What we do to one, we do to ourselves. There is NO separateness, only ONE-NESS.
Teach only Love,
For that is what you are.
If you judge people,
you have no time to love them.
Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find all of the barriers within yourself
that you have built against it.
This quote is often attributed to Jalal Rumi, but original authorship seems to be contested.
I feel it is more likely to have come from A Course In Miracles.
Letting go of Fear
The measure of love
is to love without measure.
There are two ways of spreading light...
To be the candle,
or the mirror that reflects it.
The Snow Goose need not bathe
to make itself white.
Neither need you do anything
but be yourself.
Perfect love casts out fear.
If fear exists, then there is not perfect love.
But, only perfect Love exists.
If there is fear,
it produces a state that does not exist.
Love is patient and kind,
Love is not jealous, conceited, proud or boastful,
it is not arrogant, selfish, irritable or rude.
Love does not keep a record of wrongs.
Love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth,
Love never gives up, and its faith, hope and patience never fail.
Love is eternal.
