My favorite philosophical thought on love is a quote by Deepak Chopra: “The love you seek is seeking you at the moment. Your longing, your deep fantasies about being loved are the mere shadows of the melting sweetness that makes spirit want to love you. Be honest about seeking and be alert to the moments when love is showing itself to you…The messages of love may not be clear to anyone else around you, even those most intimate to you. That doesn’t matter, they are meant for you and you alone.”
Deepak expresses the universal power of love, which is greater than we may have imagined, as well as making the point that it is in our inherent destiny to love and be loved. Whether you are experiencing this love in your life at this time is not as important. What is important is the recognition that you are love, are worthy of love and love is waiting for you.
On an existential path, we can understand and embrace this concept and certainly agree. But like most things that we work to understand and activate here on the earth plane, we could use some guidance.
This brings us gentle reader to gift number eight in the 12 Days-12 Gifts of Enlightenment for the metaphysically inclined in your life.
Gift number eight is: Give the Gift of Love.

As the metaphysically inclined Beatles sang, “All You Need is Love, Love, Love, Love is All You Need“. With this in mind, give the gift of love this holiday by creating a goody bag packed with inspirational books, music, chocolate, candles, and a beautiful rose quartz to stimulate the energy of love. If you’ve already found your special love, consider creating a “love nest” in your home, somewhere private and intimate where the two of you can spend time together, to recreate the feeling of just the two of you in the world, basking in love for each other.
Looking for a great last minute gift idea: How about – Buy an iPod and purchase a dozen love songs on iTunes and upload on the Ipod. After wrapping it up, write on the card, Dedicated to the One I Love. Another idea is to make gift coupons, redeemable for massages, back scratches, and a we’ll do whatever you’d like to do day. The possibilities surrounding this gift idea are wide open, so be creative and give your loved one a gift not found in stores anywhere.
