Last Friday I had the pleasure of being invited to the USA premiere of a Dutch movie titled: "Love is All." The movie
was excellent,it was both humorous and profound.
I met with friends and enjoyed a very pleasant evening.The message of the movie was, that in the end all that matters is Love.It looked at love in the lives of several people ,both singles and couples.
What happens in the beginning and at the end is of no consequence, what happens in between is what really matters.There were wonderful messages throughout the presentation.We laughed alot and also had tears in our eyes
at times.Driving home and thinking about some of the episodes in the movie I realized,that indeed "Love is all."
The intense feeling of connection with nature, is love for God's creation.The magical moments spent with friends , is love.The feeling of joy watching a magnificent sunset, is love. Looking into my dogs' eyes and seeing so much pure devotion, is love.I can keep on going,
In the end these are the feelings,that stay in your heart and soul. When the time comes for us to leave this earth,what do you think you will recall? All the money you made or how successful you were, the big house you built? I don't think so,At that moment I believe we will recall the things that touched us most,the love of our family and friends,the good and fun times we spend together,the people ,who cared enough about us to give us their support,the friend ,who helped us through a difficult situation with love and dedication as long as needed.When we see that homeless person and our heart goes out to him,,that's love.When we give a smile to a stranger and his or her eyes lighten up.That's love.This is the kind of Love,that Jesus talked about. That's why ":what happens in the beginning or at the end doesn't matter." What matters is how we live our life in between the beginning and the end. What matters is how much love we spread around in that space. At the end that's all we will remember and take with us.For me the most important is to know,that I gave love freely and with joy.When we experience the simple pleasures and magical moments in life,that's pure love in action.
