I Hear Love
The flute of the Infinite is played without ceasing, and its sound is love.
Let the inner ear listen to the voice of Truth that is always speaking.
--The Science of Mind, page 258
I used to tell people, in a rather resentful way, that my father only ever talked to me of sports. I wanted him to tell me he loved me, to tell me he was proud of me. Instead, he taught me to recite the names and cities of all the baseball teams in both leagues by the time I was four years old. He took me to see baseball, hockey, football, marathons, tennis and track meets. We watched professional, college, high school and Little League sports. He taught me of batting averages, ground rule doubles and how to keep score. He read me the sports page every morning at breakfast. I learned a great deal about sports because I loved and wanted to please my father.
What I recognize today is that my father was, all that time, speaking to me of his love. He loved sports, particularly baseball. It was the very stuff of his dreams. In sharing sports with me, he was sharing with me what he loved most, in the best way he knew how. I've learned to listen for my Dad's love in retrospect. It's so clear to me now.
God, the Universal Father Mother Principle, speaks to us of love through All That Is. Love is here, everywhere and always. I can hear love in the sigh of the wind, in the songs of the birds, in the laughter of children. God is here, in the roar of the airplane taking off, and in the melody of my favorite music. Once I remembered that all I needed to do was listen for the love, I could hear it everywhere I went. Can you hear the love today?
Today, I listen carefully for the gift of love in every word, sound and melody. I powerfully set my intention to recognize God expressing love in my life right now.
