Ever dreamt of giving a gift which the recipient would gladly receive and eternally appreciate, irregardless of their cultural experience, ethnic origin or religious classification?

One that the babe, teen, middle aged and old all eternally desire. A gift you could give whether you are rich or poor, intimately acquainted with or totally unfamiliar to the one whose heart you seek to bring delight to?

A gift whose waters gush forth as an elixir of joy, peace and perpetual youth. One that costs you nothing yet is the most expensive, rare and precious commodity in all the world. So much so that men traverse the five continents of the globe in their quest to find this priceless gem.

Philosophers are at pains to adequately describe it. Babies cannot live without it's comforting reassuring touch. Men and women survive longer without food or water than without this vital nutrient. Hardened criminals are transformed into gentle pussy cats by its effective, life changing power. The rich would give all they possess if they can its succulent taste enjoy and the sick are by its curative powers healed.

This most complete of all gifts is LOVE. Love is the greatest energy in the universe. The greatest revelation comes when we realize that God is love. It is not what He has or does it is who He is.

Since God is love, all love must come from Him. And if it is love it must not only represent Him but it must also look like Him. When we say to someone, "I love you.", we are actually saying to that individual, "Today I will be like God towards you, all that He is and expresses I will be, all that He is not, will not be in my thoughts or actions towards you."

Many times when we say we love an individual we do not really mean it, because we do not understand it. For example when a singer stands before her adoring fans and says to them, "I love you, I love you all." with tear filled eyes . What she is really saying is, "You give me such a thrill. I am ecstatic about your response to my singing."

When the young man says to the the girl, "I love you." he is really saying: "I would like to have sex with you, because I believe you will satisfy my urge and make me the pride of my friends." When his partner says to him, "I love you." she really means, "I enjoy how it feels to be seen with you. I admire the clothes you wear, the car you drive and I am excited about the future you can give me."

When we speak about love we are usually speaking about what the person can do for us, it is self centered, it is about receiving or giving to receive. If after much giving there is no receiving then we stop loving. When God speaks about love He has only one thing in mind - giving. He is not giving so that He can receive or be thought of as kind. He is simply doing what love does. He is only being what He can't help but be. He gives for the purpose of benefiting the person, no other reason, it is pure love.

The only thing that true love wants from you is for you to be the best that you can be. Therefore, it is impossible to 'fall out of love', because we cannot 'fall in love'. The acts of 'falling in and out of love' is based on conditionality - certain conditions have to be met before a person can receive 'love' and those conditions have to be maintained in order for the person to 'stay in love'. Love, true love since it does not seek anything for itself, is not based on the worthiness of the individual to receive love and so there is nothing they can do to not merit that love - It is unconditional.

The greatest gift we can give someone is to love them truly. True love is not judgmental, it is liberating, it is healing, it is limitless in its forgiveness and it has the power to be transformational.
