I am a living, loving expression of God, right here and now.
Since we’re just beginning the month, I thought it would be a good idea to check in with one
of our co-founders, Mr. Fillmore, to see what he has to say on the topic:
Talks On Truth, Charles Fillmore
The Development of Divine Love
We may talk about the wisdom of God, but the love of God must be felt in the heart. It
cannot be described, and one who has not felt it can have no concept of it from the
descriptions of others. But the more we talk about love, the stronger it grows in the
consciousness, and if we persist in thinking loving thoughts and speaking loving words, we
are sure to bring into our experience the feeling of that great love that is beyond
description—the very love of God.
Man has a faculty through which he receives love from Being; this faculty is commonly
called the heart. The heart, however, is but the visible expression of an invisible center of
consciousness. Sense discerns that man has a heart, but soul discerns an inner faculty in
man through which he may express an attribute of Being. By his word, man calls his powers
into activity, that through them he may manifest God.
Wherever love is tainted with selfishness, we may know that error thought has made muddy
its clear stream, so that it no longer represents the purity of its source.
Love is the drawing power of mind. It is the magnet of the universe, and about it may be
clustered all the attributes of Being, by one who thinks in divine order.
Love … taketh not account of evil (I Cor. 13:5). Love never sees anything wrong in that
which it loves. If it did, it would not be pure love. Pure love is without discriminating power. It
simply pours itself out upon the object of its affection, and takes no account of the result. By
so doing, love sometimes casts its pearls before swine, but its power is so great that it
transforms all that it touches.
Do not be afraid to pour out your love upon all the so-called evil in the world. Deny the
appearance of evil, and affirm the omnipotence and the omnipresence of love and
goodness. Take no account of the evil that appears in your life and your affairs. Refuse to
see it as evil. Declare that what seems evil has somewhere a good side, which shall
through your persistent affirmation of its presence be made visible. By using this creative
power of your own thought you will change that which seemed evil into good, and divine
love will pour its healing balm over all.
One with strong love and the right focal idea may control turbulent multitudes by his silent
You may trust love to get you out of your difficulties. There is nothing too hard for it to
accomplish for you, if you put your confidence in it.
Ask daily that love be made alive in you, that it take up its abode at your magnetic center,
and make it alive with strong, steady pulsations of spiritual energy.
Let your attention rest for a few moments every day at the heart center in your body, the
cardiac plexus, while you declare silently:
You are the abode of love. You are filled and thrilled with the mighty magnetic forces that
love uses in doing its work. You are powerful and active to do only good, and you see only
goodness and purity everywhere.
And, what could be better than that?! Please know, I love you all immensely and look
forward to your presence at Unity of the Sierra soon.
