Love Connection

Live in the awareness that God is in you and all things.

John 15:4-5

“Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me. I am the vine, you are the branches.”

Jesus speaks of God being the vine grower (John 15:1), himself as being the vine, and his followers as being the branches.

We are all connected to the Creator.

Everything is.

There is a oneness.

There is a flow.

There is an intimacy: “Remain in me, as I remain in you.”

This is a loving relationship.

The truth is…you cannot be apart from God who is as close to you as your very breath.

But if you are unconscious of your connection…or if you choose not to act in relationship with this Great Flow of Love…you will not come to know your true self.

Your branch will not bear fruit.

You may become quite successful in the ways of the world as far as attaining power, prestige and possessions.

But without becoming who you actually are at the core…you will never find peace and wholeness.

So be present to this moment.

Allow the awareness of God’s deep, abiding love for you to rise in your heart.

Live from that awareness now…and always.
