A MINUTE TO LOVE

We are all in this together.

All eight billion of us.

Really.  We are.  Our fates are intertwined.

Are we going to continue to let government, business interests, and religion tell us who “our enemies are” and let YouTube, Google, and conspiracy theorists pit ‘them’ vs. ‘us’?

What if we refused to be in conflict with each other?

What if we refused to be in conflict with each other?

What if we refused to accept the suggestion, for any reason, that there was a them?

What if we decided to become adamant there is only an us?

Take a minute to reflect on what the world would be like if each of us decided there is only a we.  What if we decided that our family, all 8 billion of us, were in this together?  What if we looked out for each other and had each other’s back?

By choosing to focus on what unites us rather than what separates us, we can change the world.  In Truth, if we decided to do this, the question would not be IF we could change the world . . . or even HOW MUCH we could change the world.

The only question would be:  Would we officially have to change the name “Earth” to “Heaven“?  Or, does that happen automatically?

Everyone has a heart.

Every heart wants to love and be loved.

Every person.

You never know what every person you meet is going through.

That person passing you in the hall may have just lost a loved one.

The person in the elevator may be suicidal.

You never know the hurt hiding behind the mask.

You never know the battle they are waging within.

You could be standing next to someone completely broken.

So don’t withhold your smile.  Never withdraw your good will.

Was This Sign Constructed in Corinth? (Pablo Lane & 13th Street)

Always provide hope to every single person you meet.  Hope may be all that they possess.

Let us connect them with the love in our heart

. . . and with the network of Love all around us.

Take a minute now to decide you will do this today.  Be grateful for something.  And tell yourself nothing is worth withdrawing your love or your smile from anyone you meet today.

Remember:  Life is hard.  God is great.

Do your best not to reverse them.

With love,

Scotty b.

  1. This was in perfect time Scotty B. I was surrounded by so much love today all around me. What I came to realize through the day is that it was not around me but rather in me. I was aware of my own love. That is all i can ever be aware of; my own love. I can not be aware of anything outside of me. We are all connected. Satan want’s us to believe we are separate. There is just one “us”. So when a smile lifts my heart it is my own love that I am experiencing.
    You are just a reflection of the Christ within me…the love within me.
