“This is my command: Love each other.” (John 15: 17, International Children’s Bible)
It sounds so simple. This command from Jesus is not difficult to understand. We don’t need to be scholars or have some deep spiritual wisdom to comply with this demand, this beautiful request from the Master to his followers, then and now.
Love each other. Just do it. The tendency to believe this is hard and that love is qualified, is just a false sense of ourselves, but even more so of the very quality of Love. For divine Love is always up to the job. Divine Love doesn’t think about loving. It simply loves.
And this is the Love that we can utilize as we accept its presence. A child naturally loves others and enjoys receiving love in return. As we remember that we are actually children of Love itself—born of Love and to Love and dwelling always in this infinite Love—then expressing this love for others is not effort. It is being.
Let’s release the mind from thinking it is difficult to love and let’s be willing to feel the Love that is not personal, and yet reaches us where we are, drawing us into its embrace. The quality of Love is not limited in space or in time. It doesn’t belong to one and not to all. We have it, and we can express it. It’s our right to do this. In loving, we bless others and set ourselves free as well.
