An Introduction to Love

God is love; and he that dwelleth in love, dwelleth in God, and God in him

God is love; and he that dwelleth in love, dwelleth in God, and God in him. (The Holy Bible: I John 4:16)

First of all, love is energy, God’s energy. This energy can be a loving memory, a thought, a beautiful feeling, or some work or service of love. It can be a sense of gratitude. It can manifest as praise of God, caring about others, caring about their true needs, wants, and desires.

Love is sharing our hearts with others.

Love is giving to others.

Love is meeting the needs of others, giving them a meal or preparing a meal for them. Love is helping others meet their basic needs of food, shelter and clothing. Also, love is helping to teach others how to meet their basic needs of food, shelter, and clothing; that is, teaching them to develop their own gifts and talents, their job skills to meet their own needs.

An Open Door of Love is an organization of Love, an activity of love for the practice of love, the performance of love, the perfection of love, and the preaching of love.

Practice is putting love into action, and action speaks louder than words, so our goal is action, or the practice of love, or the performance of deeds of love.

        The perfection of love is the perfecting our own ability to love. Perfecting our own ability to love, mainly comes from the day to day practice of love. Example is the best teacher, so the first thing for each of us to strive for, is to be an example of love. And when we say preaching (p-reaching) of love, it is moreover people reaching out in love to help others. Love is people helping people.

Love is helping others, and the most important thing we can have, is a helpful heart. Love can be helping others find this website.

Love is serving others, for “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (The Holy Bible, John 15:13)  

Generally, service begins with our friends and family, and then expands from there. 

Love is kindness, people being kind and gentle with others. Love is people being merciful to others, and not judging them.

Love is forgiving and forgetting, forgiving ourselves for any wrong we have done, and, generally, forgetting what we have done. Love is forgiving others for any wrong they have done, and then forgetting that wrong.

Moreover, love is confessing our sins and asking for God’s forgiveness. Love is teaching others to do the same.

Love is enlightened self-interest, that is developing our own talents and skills so that we can help others. Also, getting the right education or training is important. Then, the goal can be to help others do the same.  

Love is supporting others in the good they are trying to do, or the talents their are trying to develop, and in some cases, a good business they are trying to start. Love is being about Our Father’s business. Love is doing God’s will, and helping others to do the same.   

Love is discerning what our own divine plan is, and then going forth to fulfill it. Love is realizing that discerning our divine plan is a day by day understanding. Love is helping others to discern what their plan is, and then helping others fulfill their divine plans in life.

Love is resolving our psychology, and then helping others to resolve their psychology.

Love is working out our own sins or karma, and then helping others work out their sins or karma.

Love is really a balance of love, wisdom, and power; that is, love is helping others, sharing and caring for others, wisdom is the understanding or discernment of how to help others, and power is really doing God’s will or having God’s determination to help others.

Love is the desire to ascend daily, to do better daily, and to come closer to God and His will. 

Love is a gentle and gradual approach to life, being gentle with ourselves and others, and gradually learning the lessons of life.

Love is about being happy and teaching others how to be happy. Love can be a good sense of humor, and having true divine fun in life.

Love is bearing our own responsibilities, and helping others to bear their responsibilities.

of An Open Door of Love

PS: My heart is an open door of love, and moreover, our hearts are an open door of love.

We can affirm: I AM an open door of love.  

“Let us love one another for love is God. And everyone that loveth is born of God and knoweth God. He that loveth not, knoweth not God, for God is love.”  (The Holy Bible, First Epistle of John, 4:7, 4:8)

Note: 'I AM' means "God in me is" or "My Real Self is." Here are some beautiful affirmations of love that we can do: I AM God-love. I AM pure love. I AM all love. I AM in love. I do love you.

And if God is love, we are conceived in the image and likeness of God, and moreover, we are conceived in love, and therefore we are love.
