Love is a real thing. Love is real for all of us. There is so much cynicism these days that the beauty of this has become a marketing or callous thing. Or it has become something that is used casually like "Good Bye" or "What's up?". Easter recently passed and we all saw the stuff we usually see. Eggs rolling on lawns happened. People got dressed up and the weather was great. That put me in a pretty good mood. So, then I started thinking about love. I believe that what happened when Jesus came back and was resurrected was all about love. Love that we should emulate to everyone, all the time.
We know that we don't love each other. There are many examples of us hurting each other. For what? We (humans) are nuts to hurt each other. We may the only ones of our kind in the universe. We are only on this earth for a second. We as a species need each other for survival. Hurting each other is dumb because hurting one person in essence hurts us all cumulatively. Why do we want to hurt ourselves? Do we want vengeance? or power? or do we think hurt feels good. If it does, then love makes us feel a thousand times better.
Easter to me is the best holiday of the year. It is not about gifts, or marketing, or partying. It was and is only about love. I wish and hope that we could make it our real New Year. The world was transformed in this moment and given an example of love that has lasted for thousands of years. If we took a moment of each day and took each engagement with others as an opportunity. An opportunity to show love versus receiving it. Showing love in each email, text, post, handshake, and hug allows us to be what we really are and ultimately what will become.
