I am grateful, in particular because I have been writing the “Power of Love” chapter in Awakening Awareness . I must confess that the chapter was, and still is, a good idea – even when I sit with all my notes, journals and still have a blank screen. I wonder how I can put all that I know and feel about love into words.
Words, many times, aren’t really necessary. For example, I love to open the door in the morning and feel the freshness of the day and the new breath. This, I know as love.
When I sit at my computer and know its power of connecting, this, I know as love.
Yesterday, a friend and I met for a late lunch and cake. We sat for hours talking, eating, sharing life and its experiences. This, I know as love.
There are days when all of this is very clear – where the connection between life and me radiates love. However, there are the days when the connection gets fuzzy coming through all that is going on in my mind. For those days, I keep a book in reach Hidden Messages in Water. Through Masaru Emoto’s science and photographic mastery, he recorded emotions as told through frozen water crystals.
The sweetness of the book is the crystals remind us what we already know. Love, joy and peace feel good; anger and frustration, however emoted, don’t. Water that sits in a loving room has beautiful crystals. Water sitting in a polluted lake or in an angry room has distorted, muddied crystals. Check out the youtube video. Amazing, simply amazing.
The crystals are a great reminder that whether I am the only one in the room, writing, cooking, emailing – it is always a loving choice to choose love. And, given that the primary element in our physical bodies is water – choosing love and knowing the crystal beauty of the water that is me is, as they say, priceless and healthy.
Happy Valentine’s Day. Drink lots of water! Enjoy the love that is you and that is with you, today and every day.
