On Saturday morning, I received the greatest blessing I could ever have asked for from a teacher and a friend. Here was his prayer for me:
May you always be a beautiful instrument of your Lord, Jesus, is all that I will always bless you with!
These are profound words to my heart because this is also my greatest desire and hope for myself – that every moment of every day, every breath, thought, and action be in service to and an outpouring of my love for Jesus and my love of God through the example of Jesus.
This is my wish because the Jesus I have come to know is all about love – unconditional love – and healing through the deep remembrance of our Oneness with God in this love.
Jesus = LOVE
God = LOVE
You = LOVE
I = Love
Us + God = LOVE
And……you + me is supposed to = LOVE.
What I have also learned from Jesus is that when You or Me do not equal love it is because we have forgotten the LOVE that we are in our Oneness with God, most likely because we have forgotten God’s love. When you + me does not equal LOVE, it is because we have definitely forgotten and instead of LOVE have turned toward fear.
If I could do ONE thing in my life, it would be to help people understand that Jesus REALLY came here to teach us (and you don’t have to be Christian to believe this!) – LOVE and to help people to know, understand, experience and most importantly EMBODY this LOVE so we could ALL experience the realization of Jesus’ own wish for us:
“Love one another as I have loved you.”
I gratefully and wholeheartedly accept my friend’s blessing and in this blessing offer myself as the instrument as he so describes so that we may all know the love that Jesus taught and that is our original nature and knowing this love so that we may have peace. It really is that simple!
