Love Principles

"Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass." Palm 37: 4-5

In a previous article called Let Yourself Be Pampered, I talked about trusting in the Universe. There are, however, principles involved. The following experience demonstrates these principles.

As I was getting on the bus a passenger's suitcase brushed against my heels. He apologised. There were two vacant seats. I sat by the window and the same passenger sat next to me. His bag pushed against me. God give me strength! During the journey he rested his full weight on my shoulder without realising he was doing so. In silence I blessed him with love.

Soon another passenger got off. My friend beside me swapped seats so he could sit in front of me. I closed my eyes. After a while I heard him asking the passenger beside him if the bus was going to a particular station. She said she didn't know. I told him he needed to catch another bus from another station. I said I would let him know when and where.

So that's why he was giving me grief earlier. All he had to do was ask. Haha.

Because I had promised to let the passenger know when to get off, I couldn't possibly close my eyes. He needed a guide who was fully awake. Just before we arrived at his stop I told him it was time to get off and which bus to catch. The bus he wanted was already at the bus stop; it was as if the driver was waiting for him.

The journey with this passenger is a demonstration of how the Universe works, which is based on the principles of love. First, no matter what the appearances, all is love. Even though the man appeared to be bugging me, he is love. When someone's behaviour would have you believe otherwise, love or bless the experience and you will end up "seeing" the love that is always present.

Second, love is always meeting all needs perfectly; all we need to do is ask. When the passenger asked he got his needs met. In any case, he was sitting near a London buses expert.

Third, love is all-knowing and fully conscious. This means love knows the when and how so we might as well trust in Him. When the passenger asked where he should get off, we were at least half an hour away from where he needed to get off. I couldn't possibly tell him how many stops there were. He seemed impatient and kept looking at his watch. I waited until just before his stop before telling him when to get off.

Fourth, love doesn't judge. My job was to help him get to his destination, not to question why he needed to get there.

Finally, love blesses all. In this example, the man's quest was my quest that I am now sharing as this article.

All is love.
I trust in love.
