God's Perfect Prescription

Updated on July 5, 2012

To love one another is to see the face of God.” ~Victor Hugo


In an age of instant gratification and quick fixes, where things are brought to one’s doorstep at the click of a button, people are looking for something to ease their woes; something that gives meaning to a fast paced life in which the beautiful roses are not shelved and forgotten; a place where the magnificent sunrise permeates our entire being.

What is this place you ask? How do I find it? How much money will it cost? The answer to the first question is very simple and profound:

You are this place called love.

What about the second question? You can discover this by simply being love. This is your true nature. This is what you were born to be. However, a great many of us have forgotten this truth along the way. We got caught up in the story, special effects, and “bling bling” that we buried the greatest gift of all in the dark caverns of our mind. But all is not lost, my friend. There is no need to contract an expert archaeologist to uncover this perfect gift of love. There is nothing you need to do.

All you have to do is Be Love.

And the answer to the third question? This love costs you nothing. It is not a material possession that you buy from your local supermarket. You don’t need a club card to experience it or share it. As I have already stated, this love is a gift from our loving Creator. There are absolutely no requirements for this love. I know what you are about to ask:

“Nothing is free. All good things cost money.”

Let me make this clear: We have to get past this limited way of seeing the world. It doesn’t cost us anything to smile. We don’t lose a thing when we hug another. When we come from this place of love, we gain.

Appreciation gives us more things to appreciate.

"All You Need Is Love" - The Beatles

No Unpleasant Side Effects

There are unlimited benefits to this perfect love. We don’t have to be concerned with unpleasant side effects that will make us uncomfortable and sick. Instead, this love offers many positive side effects that are transformational in nature. An act of kindness not only benefits the recipient of the act, but also the person sending it, as well as any observers witnessing the kind gesture. Amazingly, all parties reap the benefits of one act of love.

Now, imagine the love that you experience when walking through nature. It inspires you to write a poem that touches countless souls. The possibilities are endless.

Are you seeing the transformational effects of love?

"Pure Love" - Colin Hay

Love Comes In Many Forms

• Happiness
• Positive Expectation

Sowing the Seeds of Love

If you want to see more love in the world, then by all means, share your love with the world. As Mahatma Gandhi has so eloquently shared, “Be the change you want to see in the world.” Each one of us is a candle of love and inspiration. Each one of us can do our part in bringing Heaven on Earth. God has given you the greatest gift of all time. It is called:

Unconditional Love
