The Magic and Joy of Love

By: Hazelden Meditation Series

Love is the magician, the enchanter that changes worthless things to joy, and makes right royal kings and queens of common clay. —Robert G. Ingersoll

Love invites us to perform our very best. Knowing we’re loved removes the edge of terror when we’re contemplating the unfamiliar — the party with strangers or meeting a new boss.

We are transformed by love. It comforts the questioning mind and the quavering heart. We can endure the long moments of suspense while awaiting a hoped-for outcome when we know we’re loved. And those times we doubt another’s love, times that are sure to come, will quickly slip by if we’re reaching out with a loving heart to someone else.

Every event promises greater joy when experienced with a spirit laced with love. The robin’s song, the laughter of children, the vibrant colors that ooze from the petals of flowers capture our attention when we’re feeling loved.

Love heals us and bonds us and promises us a life filled with moments of magic.
