+ We are called to create and enjoy a realm of compassion, peace, justice and sustainable abundance for all.

The fruit of the Spirit is love,
joy, peace, patience,
kindness, generosity,
faithfulness, gentleness,
Against such there 
is no law.
-- Galatians 5: 22-23

+ But today we kneel only to truth, follow only beauty, and obey only love.
This was the Gratefulness Word for the Day on November 19, 2016

During the moment of illumination,
When I see the original face of mind,
A limitless compassion arises.
The greater the illumination,
The greater is the compassion.
The greater my compassion,
The deeper is the wisdom I feel.
- Garmaba

Wisdom tells me I am nothing.
Love tells me I am everything.
Between the two my life flows.
-- Nisargadatta Maharaj (found at Wahaduddin's Net)

+ This is the first post on the Heavenly Attribute of Love.  Love is very closely related to the last attribute we explored: Beauty, and to the next attribute we will explore: Truth.

Love is really more than an attribute of Heaven.  It IS Heaven.  Everything is an expression of this reality. Here on Earth we all too often forget this truth and think Heaven is somewhere else.  We have to reorganize our thinking and realize this truth by constantly returning to the 12 Spiritual Practices.

+ We explored the practice of Love & Compassion during our exploration of Heavenliness as a practice in these SE posts: 241 | 242 | 243 | 244 | 245 | 246 | 247 | 248 | 249 |250 | 251 | 252 | 253

+ Spirituality & Practice offers plenty of resources on the practice of Love, on the practice of Compassion and on the practice of hospitality and other related practices.  You can also be illuminated and inspired by their many 12s galleries of memes including the 12s Gallery on Love, the 12s Gallery on Compassion and the 12s Gallery on Hospitality.

+ I would love it if you offered a guest post.  And, I have work to do on the Abundancetrek Love page. Maybe you can help.  Send an email with the subject “Love” or “Heavenly Attributes” or “Guest Post” to
