"Divine love cannot be self-contained; it must be unselfishly bestowed.” [UB 156:5:1]
Thought Adjuster: “Let us ponder this aspect of Divinity since you are called to grow in Godlikeness. Divine love originates from a parental heart.
Good parenting encompasses the many facets of the selfless sharing of oneself—starting with giving life, sheltering it, sustaining it, caregiving, and educating.
The sublime and unconditional quality of Jesus' parental affection toward all spoke silent volumes of his Godlikeness. He appealed to the inner child of his compatriots and thoroughly enjoyed the company of children. When meeting challenging individuals, his genuine interest in them led them to candidly confide in him. He got to know them at their very core and welcomed these love-starved souls in his wide-open heart as his spiritual children.
How quickly would your world shift toward light and life if its population learned to interrelate similarly, activating the maturation process of the divine seeds of truth, beauty, goodness that are your legitimate credentials to claim your divine birthright! It would clear unfortunate misunderstandings and dismiss wrongful assumptions, thus dismantling all sorts of dysfunctional behavioral patterns.
What you give out in love substance gets back to you organically, as love is the driving force of the cosmic circulatory system, blessing all with its fertility. Life in this world gives you ample opportunities to expand your ability to love-ability.
“You cannot truly love your fellows by a mere act of the will. Love is only born of thoroughgoing understanding of your neighbor’s motives and sentiments. It is not so important to love all men today as it is that each day you learn to love one more human being. . . if this is the limit of your ability, then you are certainly socializing and truly spiritualizing your personality.” [UB 100:4:6]
Are you up for the challenge? Where will you direct the laser beam of your love today?”
