Love heals anything. Love heals the mind; love heals the heart. Love heals any ache or pain. The greatest gift bestowed on mankind is to be loved and to be able to love. When we make ourselves worthy of that, when we start loving, even consciously, at first, it might seem a bit mechanical, but showing little kindnesses here, there, and everywhere it starts the machine rolling.

I have a friend who is a very big businessman, and during those business times, I used to visit his office now and again. He has a big notice in his front office that “To be enthusiastic, act enthusiastic.” By acting enthusiastic, you become enthusiastic. You are repatterning your mind with some effort.

When it comes to love, you can not just love, but start with the little niceties, the little kindnesses, a little smile. When you become loving, you become lovable. That is how you attract love towards you. That is how we attract the greatest gift given to man, to be able to love and to be able to be loved. For the very word “love” is synonymous with God – for God is Love and Love is God.


When a man loves a woman, God has come between the two people. He is there, ever-present. In the scriptures, when two people are gathered in my name, I am there. This also has its literal meaning where one discusses the teachings of the scriptures. It also has a figurative meaning, that by getting together to discuss those very teachings, one discusses them not as a surgeon, analysing and dissecting, you get together for love – a sharing of love. Then that Force, that power, is always there.

The most significant healing that could be given to me, for example, is your love, a sharing of that love. That is all. It opens up a beautiful channel toward that which is inexplicable. I experience it every moment of the day, but if you ask me to explain it, to define it, I cannot. It is beyond the comprehension of the mind. But the feeling is so powerful.


Last night Doug and I were sitting down chatting; I said, “You know, the forces of Divinity are flowing so powerfully that I sometimes feel that this body could hardly contain it.” That is the whole secret of life, to share this love, and in sharing, there is growing. Look how beautiful when the flower grows. Look how many elements are shared or interconnected with each other. The air shares, the sun shares, the minerals in the ground shares, and all the sharing makes the flower grow; it makes it blossom in its beauty. And when it blossoms in its beauty, that is not all that it does. It also gives off that fragrance without asking. You do not ask the flower for its fragrance; it is just there. It just gives.

If our lives could be like the flower, where we become fragrant with love, and there is not a single person on Earth that needs to be unhappy. For love is all; love is happiness; love is joy; love is God; love is Divinity. Nothing else exists but love.
