“Where love is present, protection is not necessary”  

William Linville

For many students and visitors to the library, they saw and read a short saying.  I chose that particular saying and wrote the  saying in large print, I gave credit to its author, and I placed it prominently near the  library doors.  The sayings I used might have come from anyplace.  Most often the saying came from my own reading or research.  But, that particular saying had opened up questions in me:  it made me wonder……

Is it true?

Do I believe it?

Do other people believe it?

Will it change my life or my behavior if it is true?

Would other people change their lives or behaviors if the saying is true?

What do you think of this?

If love is present, then what happens to the fearfulness we experince in life?  If love is present, then do we need armed guards at schools?  If love is present, do we see our legislators asking to be replaced so new ideas might be fostered by newly elected?  If love is present in our families, do children fear parents or parents fear children?

My thoughts and feelings will continue to change and develop with each new saying I find. I like that.  That very thought makes me smile.  And so I’ll continue to feel that our force of love, whether through prayer or reiki or tapping, will make the world and all who are here engage in their lives with more attention given to that state called love.
