Season of Love and Celebration: 5 Ways to Spread the Greatest Love For the Holidays
by Master Francisco Quintero,
Co-author of Greatest Love – How to Unblock Your Life in 30 Minutes a Day with Unconditional Love
The holidays are a time for celebration with family, friends, and colleagues. It is the perfect time to spread the greatest love. What is the greatest love? In the words of Master Zhi Gang Sha, “Greatest Love is unlimited and unconditional. To love unconditionally has been the highest calling for teachers of all traditions throughout history,” People from all backgrounds join together at this time of year. As we take this time to step away from our everyday activities and take some time away from work, we have the perfect opportunity to fully appreciate each other and to spread love. The greatest form of appreciation and the greatest gift we can give to each other is unconditional love. This is an acceptance of everyone at a deep level as truly interconnected and one. In the book Greatest Love, Master Sha and his co-authors show how we can all access the greatest love within our hearts and souls. The holidays are a time to remember and focus on the good in everyone and the unconditional love that is there deep in our hearts and souls.
At a time when many people give and receive gifts, what is most important is to give with your heart and soul and to remember that love is the greatest gift. In Greatest Love Master Sha and his co-authors show you how to connect with unconditional love through very simple but profound practices, so whatever we give, big or small, carries the most positive message. To receive love is equally important/ Allow yourself to open your heart to accepting any card, gift, any loving gesture, and any words of love with your whole heart. One of the teachings in Greatest Love is that everything we say, do, and think carries a message. When we connect through our hearts and souls with unconditional love, our soul guides us to always send the message of greatest love.
Bringing joy to others is a wonderful way to show the greatest love. Along with the appreciation of our loved ones, this season is a special time for fulfilling our purpose in life by being of service to others and showing our love for humanity. Whatever your beliefs, there are many ways to spread unconditional love through blessings and sending the best wishes for health, happiness, and success. A powerful way to express and be an example of unconditional love is charitable giving or by volunteering. When you or your family choose a charity to give to, you embody unconditional love. Listen to your heart and give where you feel a soul connection. Charitable giving or volunteering is an expression of the oneness of humanity and our souls joining as one. Always remember that the most important thing is to give with great kindness and the greatest love in your thoughts, words, and actions, with no judgments, no conditions and no expectations. When you embody unconditional love, you bring great joy to others.
Being grateful every day is a way to live with the greatest love. The holidays give us a special opportunity to truly thank everyone from our hearts for all that they give and do. Think of all the people in your life who have helped you and watched over you, and the endless beauty of nature that nourishes you every day. Thank everyone from the past and the present and feel the greatest love flow through you. This is an ideal time of year to reach out through a card, a call, a thoughtful gift, or a visit to show your gratitude and love. Thank everyone from your heart for the gift of their love, service, kindness, and generosity. Gratitude is the antidote to all negative mindsets and opens our hearts to give and receive the greatest love, the unconditional love that can melt all blockages.
At this time when we get together with family, friends, and co-workers, sometimes people worry about past events, things that may have hurt them or things that they have done to hurt others. The holidays are a time for forgiveness, for letting go of past hurts and coming together as one to be grateful and to experience joy. Make a commitment to practice forgiveness, to apologize and to accept apologies, and clear the way for a return to and renewal of love for the new year. If someone is not ready to forgive or accept apologies, you can set the example of unconditional love by not wavering in showing total acceptance and love. When you read Greatest Love, you will find a simple but very powerful forgiveness practice that will help you clear away even longstanding hurts and regrets. Try this practice and trust in this wisdom.
Express and embody love, peace, and harmony, first with your family, then other people in your life, and with humanity. Resolve to act with peace and unconditional acceptance and love. In Greatest Love, you will learn about the power of chanting the words Greatest Love. Many traditions have prayers or special sounds or words to bring peace, love, and blessings. When we chant Greatest Love, we feel the flow of unconditional love within us and spread it to others. Another way sound brings our souls into harmony is through song. We have many traditional songs that we sing every year, that unites us with the feeling of the specialness of the season and connecting us to love. Master Sha received the gift of this sacred song that he shares with people all over the world so we can join together as one big Love Peace Harmony family. This song has great resonance and carries the greatest love, unconditional love, the purest, limitless universal love. You are welcomed to experience and practice the greatest love by singing Love Peace and Harmony: https://lovepeaceharmony.org/resources/

I love all humanity
Join hearts and souls together
