Less than a month away, why not think of small ways you can express your love to those you cherish most? Keep in mind that your own love language may vary from theirs. Some of us feel loved when we hear affirming words. For others, it’s receiving gifts or acts of service.

Here is a great place to learn about 5 love languages if you care to go deeper into that topic.

A Love Poem by Rumi…

Ode 314

Those who don’t feel this Love
pulling them like a river,
those who don’t drink dawn
like a cup of spring water
or take in sunset like supper,
those who don’t want to change,

let them sleep.

This Love is beyond the study of theology,
that old trickery and hypocrisy.
If you want to improve your mind that way,

sleep on.

I’ve given up on my brain.
I’ve torn the cloth to shreds
and thrown it away.

If you’re not completely naked,
wrap your beautiful robe of words
around you,

and sleep.

I highly recommend that you go back and read the poetry above at least one more time! So rich!

Hafiz Understands the Heart

A Potted Plant

I pull a sun from my coin purse each day.

And at night I let my pet the moon
Run freely into the sky meadow.

If I whistled,
She would turn her head and look at me.

If I then waved my arms,
She would come back wagging a marvelous tail
Of stars.

There are always a few men like me
In this world

Who are house-sitting for God.
We share His royal duties:

I water each day a favorite potted plant
Of His–
This earth.

Ask the Friend for love.
Ask Him again.

For I have learned that every heart will get
What it prays for
Most.

From: ‘The Subject Tonight Is Love’

I just love that sentiment above! As I prepared this post, I drenched myself in the romantic reflections of my favorite Sufi poets, who reminded me of the strength of love over death–of the mysteries which lie beyond what we can know with our intellect alone.

Love will not be hemmed in by space or time! Someday we’ll take our last breath here. And I believe we’ll immediately breathe our first breath THERE.

In eternity.

In the fullness of Big Love.

Without pain. Without fear. Without loneliness.

In perfect union with a Holy Force.

Wishing you love this day and…

Peace to you right where you are.

    I love and appreciate how you seamlessly connect the spiritual to everything…even Valentine’s Day happy’s! That’s one of the many things I love about your blog! Because truly there is no separation between the spiritual and the secular… God meant it to be that way. Love all your fun ideas for spreading the love to those we love!! (Did I mention the word love in this comment?! ha!) Happy day to you!

      You have brought such warmth to my heart this very moment with your kind words of love. Thank you for the encouragement, and I so agree that it is ALL spiritual and any separation is an illusion. Peace to you, friend.
