Love is the meaning of life; the most powerful force in the universe; the most basic need of every human being.

Love is power; love is happiness; love is fulfilment.

Love is not an action, not something we “do”. It is the matrix of our being, the power grid of the universe. It is a force within us which we can invoke, enter into and bring to the fore.

Love nurtures all other divine qualities. In love we find hope; we find strength; we find sacrifice; we find compassion; we find sweetness; we find forgiveness; we find patience; we find tolerance; we find knowledge; we find ingenuity; we find newness; we find success; we find progress; we find joy; we find energy; we find youthfulness; we find concentration; we find inspiration; we find determination; we find purpose; we find guidance; we find heroism; we find meaning; we find growth; we find fulfilment; we find glory.

The Beatles were absolutely right: “All you need is love!”

Everything we need, we find more easily, readily and abundantly where there is love; for love connects everything – and everyone – in the universe.

If love is the source of so many qualities we want and desperately need in life, then to find all those qualities, we need only to cultivate love.

But how to do so?

Through the disciplined focus of meditation.

Even in the driest desert there is always water: you just have to dig deep enough.

As we dig in meditation, we cannot but uncover the wellspring of love in our hearts.

While water in the desert, if overdrawn will run dry, our hearts’ love is limitless: the more it is expressed, the more love expands and multiplies.

Love is the root, tree, flower and fruit of meditation.
