One of the most life changing moments anyone can have is experiencing the power of Love. If you look at any world, religious or peace leader, their stories live on today because of the methods used to empower people simply with Love.
In our daily lives we can relate to our bosses or supervisors, our elected officials, leaders and major corporations that are always trying to change us. They may use their position, manipulation, money, objects, intimidation or other methods that force people to change their actions, but it doesn't mean it changes their hearts. Love is the only thing powerful enough to change people wholeheartedly; mind, body and soul.
We become numb to tragedies because they are common place. Rarely do we see or hear about the stories of Love. The news and social media constantly report stories daily of tragic shootings, killings, robberies, riots, civil unrest and all types of chaos happening. The root cause is money and power to gain respect. It's difficult to maintain integrity and character when objects are placed over Love. Love is the gateway to peace.
The power of Love is set in stone! There's nothing more fulfilling in life than to reach the place where Love transcends all. As many across the world acknowledge and celebrate "Good Friday", be encouraged to practice Love daily to every person you meet. My take away from Lent, the passion of the Christ and the significance of Resurrection Sunday is that there is purpose in our pain. Don't limit the power and being of Love. The sacrifices that have been made for us by our ancestors is what makes the story of Love real for us. Love encourages us to reach beyond the lines of color, creed, religion or differences.
For those who sacrificed dreams, visions and even their lives for justice, progression or advancement...they sacrificed for something more important than what they may have wanted. They made sacrifices for their families and for others to be able to experience and know the power of Love. Be inspired by their sacrifices to be the light that shines Love into the world.
