The Greatest Gift From God

The Gift

We have been given the greatest gift of all time. It is something that poets, songwriters, and philosophers have been telling us for a very long time. It is a force that exists in each one of us. In fact, this amazing force has the potential to transform our world. We were created from this extraordinary force. Leo Buscaglia has said that we were born for it.

This beautiful gift is called love.

It is often mistaken only as an experience between two lovers. But the love I am referring to is much deeper. It is unconditional. It is a love that transcends boundaries, as well as time and space. It is the force that connects us together. What inspired this article was a video that I watched on Youtube, as well as an observation of unconditional love that a family demonstrated to one another. When each member spoke, everyone’s undivided attention was on the speaker. They were fully present. It was more than obvious that they respected and valued each other. I could feel the love that they shared with one another. This made my heart sing. However, not all families treat each other this way.

One time while delivering a pizza to a customer’s house, I witnessed a mother cuss out her young toddler. It broke my heart to see that the mother had forgotten the wonderful gift she was given. We are told by profound thinkers and wise teachers that our children are our future. It should be more than obvious that if we do not honor and respect our children, we will not have a future.

On a positive note, I am honored to have friends in my life that honor and value children. Some are teachers that go beyond traditional teaching and bring about transformation in their students lives. Other friends are loving parents that fill their children’s lives with love.

It is quite amazing to see this beautiful dance of love that goes on between family members.

My heart fondly remembers a time when my father took my sister and me to a new shopping center that was built in Riverside. It was 1978. It was the special quality time that we spent together that mattered the most to me. We were a family showing love to one another. And now, thirty plus years later, this magical feeling still surfaces whenever I visit the shopping center. My heart also fondly remembers when my aunt took my sister and me to the arcade, as well as baking us fresh candy. As a child, we look up to adults. They are our heroes. We try to emulate them. We want to be like them when we grow up.

"Spirit Science 20 - Water"

"Water has Memory"

The Amazing Power of Water

You may not be aware of this, but water can teach us about the importance of love.

How is that possible? It is just water! We often forget that water is a living substance. In fact, without water, life on this planet could not exist. Many are not aware of the fact that water records information. According to Rustum Roy, a professor at the State University of Pennsylvania, as well as a member of The International Academy of Science, informs us that we have to look at the structure of water—"how its molecules are organized." This is a very important fact that many skeptics and scientists overlook. They do not realize that our thoughts, emotions, and intention affect the structure of water. Now, with that being said, what can water teach us about love?

I recently came across a video entitled “Spirit Science 20 - Water.” It shared a video clip of a documentary that featured Dr. Masaru Emoto, Dr. Rustum Roy, as well as other important researchers talking about the importance of water. Dr. Emoto has shared with the world how beautiful crystals are formed by our thoughts and emotions. For example, the words “love and appreciation” produced an absolutely beautiful crystal formation. On the other hand, negative thoughts and words produced ugly distorted images. Dr. Emoto also shared an experiment in which he filled three beakers with rice and water. Each day, for an entire month, he said to the first beaker, “Thank you”; to the second beaker, “You’re an idiot”; while the third beaker was completely ignored. The results to the experiment were profound. The first beaker produced a pleasant fermenting aroma; the second beaker contained blackened rice; and the third beaker had rotting rice. I was blown away by Emoto’s experiment. This gave scientific proof that humans cannot survive without love. We all know what happens to a child that does not receive love and attention.

Love Is the Answer

My good friend, Marie, understands the importance of love to the world. In fact, the name of her Facebook page is entitled “Love Is The Answer.” This is a profound statement that has the power to transform our world. It transcends culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, and economic status. It unites us together despite our differences. It is the language of God. It is the answer to our prayers.

Let's share this beautiful gift with the world.

Peace, Love & Light,

Terry Fatland

      teaches12345, love, indeed, is the greatest gift to mankind. I found water to be rather fascinating as well. Many do not realize that water is a living substance. It is perceptive of our thoughts and emotions. Christmas is a beautiful reminder that love is the answer. Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts. :)

      What a great way to remind us how precious life and love it is. Love is a universal feelings and it consumes everything. God gave us this unique feeling and gift that we can share unconditionally and freely because it is God's way of telling us we are born to love all human race regardless of who, where what they are...just the way God wants us to love.

      Thank you for this hub.

      Marie, a part of this article was inspired by our conversations about inspiration. It just occurred to me that when we inspire others we are demonstrating unconditional love. I feel compassion for those that do not understand the true meaning of love. We can only continue to shine our light of love upon the world and hope others embrace this wonderful gift. It is my pleasure to mention your FB page. Whenever I visit your page, my heart is filled with joy by your wonderful inspiring posts.

      You are on a roll, Terry! I have had the occasional Facebook member email me or post in my page who are not sure why love is the answer. I find the experiment with the rice astonishing; I had not heard of this new experiment. I am going to look into it.

      Thank you so much for mentioning my Love Is The Answer page!

      It is good to be back in the flow again, Ashvina. Love is definitely powerful. It is quite amazing how each of us expresses it. I remember Michelle discussing the different languages of love. Very interesting stuff!
