“Love is the answer” – England Dan & John Ford Coley
Earlier this week I began reflecting on what I consider to be the most powerful energy that exists, love. As I reflected on this insatiable topic, the memory of a deeply impactful love concert experience echoed in my memory.
My memory took me back to December of 2018, when I had the most astounding pleasure of attending a concert aptly entitled Infinite Love. At the time, I was not familiar with the music of the artiste but my girlfriend who invited me was a die-hard fan.
Truth be told, when she first invited me, I was a bit hesitant to attend but because of her enthusiasm and the title of the concert, I decided to go. As it turned out, it was the best decision I had made.
On the night of the concert, as soon as I entered the concert hall, I felt it. I literally felt the love. I was greeted by the most warm, attentive, and very professional host, who made it his duty to ensure we felt comfortable and at home.
From the very beginning to end of the concert, their simple mission to spread the message of love was transmitted loud and clear. Each song sang by the artiste and each of his powerhouse guests, was wrapped in, filled with, and oozed the most transcendent and all-powerful energy of all time, love.
Needless to say, the entire experience deeply penetrated my being in a profound, yet gentle way. Mostly, it caused me to start to examine and view the energy of love in a way I had never done before.
I began asking myself a series of questions, while seeking the answers by applying them to my experience:
1. What if love was our only mission?
2. What if love was our only purpose?
3. What if love was our only goal?
4. What if love was the only thought we had?
5. What if love was the basis of all our beliefs?
6. What if love was our only language?
7. What if all that we are is already love?
8. If we were to continuously exist in a state of love and truly live life from this space, what would life be like?
9. If we truly recognised the truth that we are love itself and allowed its expression to flow uninhibitedly through us, what would life be like?
10. If in each moment, we chose love, no matter how we felt, no matter who was before us, no matter where we were, no matter what we did, what would life be like?
11. If the illusion of separation fell from our eyes and we finally realised the truth that there is no you, there is no me, but only love, what would life be like?
The deceased Dr Wayne Dyer once said, “Whatever the question, love is the answer.” While Dr Dyer’s advice might seem simplistic in answering some of the life’s greatest challenges and problems, I believe, if each us did just that, apply love to every situation, every thought, and every action, life as we know it would be better, richer and more satisfactory for everyone.
Yes, I know, easier said than done but possible.
I encourage you to spend some time pondering on some of the questions and see what comes up for you. And if you are adventurous, beyond simply seeking a conceptual answer, apply them to your life and allow your experience to answer you.
