The heartbeat of the universe is love. It is the energy that flows through all and unifies all. Much of the spiritual life is the process of deepening our realization of love. Some of the best places to start seeing love is by looking at nature. There is such beauty and wonder. Listening to birds sing is to listen to the song of love.
As the eye of our heart is opened we see love in more obscure places, in people who are different than us, in the pain of life and in the isolation we so often feel. Seeing love and knowing we are loved gives us grace to live open, free lives that trust rather than fear.
