Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
We are counting down to Christmas and today I love to speak about "everlasting love". What does it mean? Everlasting love isn't that a wonderful love? In my opinion Christmas is about everlasting love. As I read the Christmas story about the birth of Jesus Christ than it's the start of a love story. God decides to save the world, His wonderful Creation. He looked at the world and He saw what His Creation has become. He sees who people are at war with each other, He sees how religions collide with each other ... only for the truth they all think they speak about.
Everlasting love isn't exclusively for believers in any kind of God, Allah, Spirit or what name you will give it. Love is, in my opinion, sacred energy. Without love we cannot survive ... than humankind will die ... We need to be loved, to be respected, to be trusted, to be .....
everlasting love ...
the waterwillow and the brook
Maybe you can remember this haiku. I recently published it in one of our episodes. This haiku, maybe not my best, shows you how I see everlasting love. The Waterwillow can not live without the brook and the brook can not live without the Waterwillow. Let us go a bit deeper in this idea. I think this "earth-water" connection is similar with living together as humans. Living next to each other notwithstanding our religion or spiritual philosophy is the same thing. We can not live without our neighbors, we need them. In a way this is a kind of everlasting love too.
Everlasting love ... God send His Son to live with all earths inhabitants ... Jesus taught us how to live with each other. He taught us to love our neighbor like ourselves. Everlasting love is really everlasting ... it's a love for eternity and we can see that around us. In this time of year we try to bring out that love again.
Take your time to find that everlasting love ... I believe that you will find it just around the corner or in your home ... look up to the ceiling ... yes there it is the mistletoe ... and you all know what that means.
like a river flows onwards
uncertain of its goal
rising from the depths of the pond
It wasn't easy to create this episode, because I believe in everlasting unconditional love, but I had some trouble with finding balance in this episode. I think ... it has become a very nice post.
