The Freeing Power of Love

Lily Velez shares how to let love transform your every action.


Love freely.

Love without limits.

Love without condition.

Love as a soul unchained, as one who is not shackled by the pains of a yesterday. Love as if there existed no threat of incurring heartache in return. Love from a heart that refuses to be encased in ice, from a heart that defies imprisonment behind the iron bars of mistrust.

Rather, let your heart beat as wildly as the wings of the starling against an apricot sunset. Love in the dreamy way of an awestruck child. Love in the starry-eyed way of artists, who drink in the world’s beauty and become drunk by it.

Place no limits on that love. Demonstrate it at all times. Let it be a symphony that stirs your soul, a battle cry that beckons you to extend compassion to all–with no regard to culture, creed, and other statuses that separate us more than they do unite us.

Instead, be a manifestation of the highest and purest forms of love. Think kindly of others. Assist those in need, even in the most trivial of gestures. Use your gifts, talents, and skills to bring hope and healing into a world that so often struggles under the weights of despair and discouragement.

Smile at strangers in passing. Speak only what is helpful toward uplifting a kindred spirit. Speak with the knowledge that every utterance has the potential to serve as balm for a weary soul.

Remember that your words possess vibrations, and that these vibrations can either create worlds of peace between yourself and others or cause disharmony and destruction. Knowing this, choose your words wisely.

Never serve pride above love, as pride will never serve you well. Embrace vulnerability and express your love at all times. Proclaim “I love you” as if tomorrow may never greet you. Hold hands with the dear one beside you to remind them of your affection. Envelop others warmly.....Continue reading at

Thank you Gail for your aricle it is great. and thanks to the 31 care 2 members that commented on this subject. I enjoyed reading all of them. I always end my conversations and meeting with family and close friends with Love you always, because as you say the next day or conversation, or meeting is not guaranteed. So I want the last thing said between us to be love, unconditional love, ever lasting love. I am now trying to include more friends into my love circle, because as we age over 70 and plus more of us are going without warning every day.......Never let the day close with anger in your heart, always let it be LOVE....even if the other person thinks you are nuts.......

Unconditional, without expectation of reward, freely and totally given, is its own reward. We all want love, often afraid to go first, and as a result miss out on the best things in life.

Take the first step, one simple spark can start a wildfire. How great would that be?

Dogs love unconditionally. Something humans could do if they tried.
