Practitioner’s Corner: Jim Babcock

The holidays are a time of coming together and celebrating. That’s the time we let our love shine. We do this in a variety of ways that create a deeper relationship with our friends and families. What I think we forget is this love helps deepen our relationship with ourselves which in reality is God.

How do we love in a way that changes our world? Think about it. When we see someone smile at us, we get a hug or a kiss, or just have someone listen to us, it lifts us up and we feel the love we are talking about. How do we feel when we are the ones smiling at someone, giving a hug or kiss, or really listen to someone? For me, this love is even more palpable, and I feel overwhelming joy which I can trace directly back to the Divine.

Knowing everything is Spirit in action, my special way of feeling and spreading love is music. I love listening and I love singing along. It is one of my great joys. It’s something I can do by myself or with others. Here’s the lyrics from one of my favorite Beatle’s songs. See if it doesn’t warm your heart.

And scroll to the end for an affirmation of Love.
