Love, it’s the Greatest!

Negative influences and distractions can attack our thinking! We need a way to get back to the basics. What is more basic than love? Here is a brief meditation on real and genuine love from, “The Love Chapter,” 1st Corinthians 13. This was adapted from the list of the Nine Ingredients in the Spectrum of Love in the classic book, The Greatest Thing in the World, by Henry Drummond (1851-1897).

I shot the video of the birds and the squirrel on New Year’s morning in our back yard. The light snow falling seemed to energize them!

If you watch this video more than once, you might be surprised at how quickly these thoughts begin to settle in and take up residence in the top of your mind – possibly replacing other thoughts that were less productive. Hopefully this will provide a simple way to practice and strengthen an attitude of love, which truly is . . . The Greatest Thing in the World! – Dan

You have a very good presentation style. The snowy scenes are such a great background. Thanks for doing this! We all need to be brought back to the basics regularly!

Darcy says:

愛情也是付出回報不成比例, but that never stop people from fanlilg in love. On the other hand, it depends on how you see as ‘return’. Raising a kid sure will have to make personal sacrifice, but being able to take care of and nuture someone is a personal growth itself. To give is as much a return as to take. If one doesn’t understand this, one never really understands what love means

DK says:

Google Translates the Chinese into, “Love is to pay a disproportionate return.” To me, that means we should be ready to give more than we receive. Then we don’t worry so much about keeping score. Great comment, thank you Darcy! – Dan
