      To Practice

      • CLICK HERE and listen to Vivek Murthy, US Surgeon General, as he guides a short meditation on the power of love (about three minutes). Notice what stirs in you.
      • Practice love this week in small and concrete ways. Each day, reaffirm your intention to practice love. What do you learn?

      If you wish to re-read this week’s full reflection, you may do so here:

      For me, practicing love makes showing kindness & love to others flow more easily.  I also find that it opens me to the grief I carry & makes allowing & releasing this less difficult.

      Grief & gratitude, loving & grieving are companions & I am immersing myself in the Grateful Grief course being offered by Grateful Living.  Vivek Murthy’s meditation fits well with where I am right now.

      Thank you.

      Sunday May 7: The Power of Love

      What did I learn practicing love this week? Love flows from the well inside me, accessed with the centering prayer bucket, and is poured out as generously as I am able onto whomever I encounter, whatever situation I face. I am always delighted surprised when I feel down, not really wanting to talk to anyone, yet know I need contact, I am affirmed by a call, note or thought from a friend that primes the love to flow again. Now is the time to pour what love I can into our world, for all our needs, as best I am able. <3 linda

      Practicing love this week, I became aware that the Holy Spirit has-been/is evacuating a lot of negative debris, my self seeking love, my hyper vigilance, my opionatedness, and such like. Forty-four years ago on a research project in England and France I  cut someone out of my life but avoiding interaction. Ten days ago she contacted me from Uganda because she is facing some health issues. I was/ am amazingly surprised that I was able to give her my full attention without the former triggers. Indeed, I was able to let go of the plans I had for that morning, and give her my full attention. This interaction will continue as she arrives here June 8 for a planned six week stay which may now be lengthened. Be kind to one another! A phrase we hear often since covid showed up in our lives. Willingness to be kind, consenting to the presence and action of the Indwelling Spirit, lots of Welcome Praying allows the Spirit to clear debris. I end humbly and gratefully and envelop all in loving kindness blessings.

      I think love is simply built from the smallest things. Sometimes, caring, listening, helping, encouraging, caring, and so on will make the love of couples more beautiful and lasting. However, many times we forget those things.
