February Idea of the Month

February has been associated with Love and Valentine's Day for a long time. And as we continue with the daily spiritual practice of reading 365 Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes, he calls February the month of Love.

Ernest Holmes defines Love as "the self-givingness of the Spirit through the desire of Life to express Itself in terms of creation." What does that mean exactly?

If God is all and all is God, then Love is the givingness of God, and if God is everything, It can only give Itself to Itself -- that is the self-givingness. Then what is it giving to Itself? It is giving expression. It is giving Life the ability to express through creation. It is giving Its creation the ability to express more creation creatively. That is Divine Love.

And what falls under the category of expressing creatively is Us and all possibilities. We have been given limitless potential to express anything and the way we express is by creating and being creative.

This gift from the All-givingness of God has already been given. Have you opened your arms to receive it?

Until next time,
