Blackbutterfly Love and Free Spirit
On the wings of the butterfly, I see many splendid visions, and translate these into amazing words and stories of the beauty, freedom, and grace of the awesome experience we have, as Life.
None of this is possible without the Divine Spirit of Love. It is first and foremost, the beginning, the creator of all things. We are here to 'know' and to 'realize' this is our 'Greatest Love'; that which "has made us", and "not we ourselves." We are presented by the Greatest Love! There has never been before; nor ever be another, like the Divine Spirit of Love. We are here to realize who and what we are, and to experience the truth. The truth dwells within our hearts. We are free-beings, bearing witness of our ownselves; therefore we come to know our 'true purpose for living'.
Our personal life experiences are intertwined with one another. We are the "Oneness" of the Divine Spirit of Love. We are set free to know, to love and to be fruitful. We live-out the best of ourselves, where 'Truth' is our only reproof. We recognize the splendor of sight; feel the comfort of inner-peace, experience the joy and happiness of sharing and caring. We have solace for sadness, and inspiration for the rejuvenation of our hearts. We know that Love is of its own...it's a joy to feel Love!
Graciously, the Divine Spirit of Love re-creates life and is forevermore. Even while we yet live, we are being re-created, being re-born, as in "born-again". We are set free over and over to re-realize the truth. Again, none of this is possible, without truly knowing ourselves, and believing we are "able to do all things possible", through the Divine Spirit of Love. Having the courage to allow a spiritual "make-over" or re-birth, is to have faith in ourselves to become anew with hope and promise; of reaching the destinies we will choose. The exercising of faith is rewarded in Love.
I like to think of the Goddess of Love, or the God of Love, as the 'One' who has always known me; before I knew ‘Me’, and in this I do believe that we are all one within the Divine Spirit of Love... now and forever. Life is like a circle...a continuum of Love recreating Life eternally.
In our evolvement of the Life experience, we are drawn towards that in which we personally believe. Divine Love gives us the freedom to believe in what we will. Ultimately, what we believe in becomes our experience. However, Divine Love is the guide to all Truth. It penetrates our hearts, minds, and souls. It is the Love that is everlasting. The Light that out shines all others...that brightens in darkness and leads us along our path-Way. It conquers all! It is our greatest and most precious gift.
Love is all. The past is sown to become the present. The present is the keeper and "the promise of the 'New Day'...when we "shall reap the harvest" of our faith and works. (Remember, you 'reap' what you have 'sown'). Love does not confine us to Its Way, Its Light, or Its Truth. It is freely up to us what we do with Love. Our works, decisions, choices and actions will determine whether we will "reap a harvest of blessings" of the Divine Spirit of Love. However, Love will never forsake us, never leave us, and always reminds us of its presence. Love is bold and sure, kind and forgiving.
Love is the 'Truth' messenger; the inkling of the mind, or maybe sometimes it’s a sublime notion that we need to adhere. When Love gets our attention, it's always for the greater-good of everything in our daily lives. Surely, it urges us in making changes for the better (in our hearts and minds), to help us in being wise in our decisions and actions. Love is the redeemer, if and when we are lost to misunderstandings and disbelief. When we allow the Divine Spirit of Love to be our guide, it brings to light the truth, clarifies vision, transcends the unknown and the unspoken...to give reason, reassurance and inspires Faith; Love instills peace and reveals its own... that in which we should believe.
Divine Spirit of Love speaks to us clearly and without question. "Be not deceived"....for the Divine Spirit of Love "is not mocked”. Life is what you sow and reap… or make it to be. We should always seek first what is true; seek first to know and understand (discern) the 'Truth'_ through the Divine Spirit of Love. This is the wisdom that yields the "fruit of the Spirit" and the harvest that leads to a newness of Life.
Divine Spirit of Love is the constant provider, the fulfillment of the now, and the deliverer of our forever. We are now creating where we "want to be" and where "we will be". In faith and love....we should be working and believing, as though we are already there…because of "the promise" that cannot be broken. We have been blessed, even before we knew how, or what it means to be blessed.
Life cannot and does not exist outside of LOVE. LOVE IS KIND, GENTLE, PATIENT, FAITHFUL, GENEROUS, FORGIVING...GIVES US PEACE OF MIND, and BRINGS JOY AND FULFILLMENT TO THE HEART. LOVE is the BREATH OF LIFE, THE ONE and ONLY “many splendored”...ALL WE NEED. LOVE IS ALL THAT LAST FOREVER.
