Time Enough for Love?

"What the world needs now is love, sweet love It's the only thing that there's just too little of What the world needs now is love, sweet love,  No not just for some but for everyone..." Lyrics by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, sung by Dusty Springfield

I facetiously call February the “month of love” as a gentle challenge to the idea of one day a year dedicated to love on February 14th. But I am not the only one who feels that we should cultivate the sensibilities represented by Valentines Day all year round. After all St. Valentine would be more appropriately honoured by the promotion of universal love in his name rather than the romantic sexual love which is commercialized on February 14 every year.

It all starts with each one of us; our commitment to cultivating healthy self love and sharing the wealth. If we didn’t have a good  experience of it in our childhood, it’s time to take ourselves in  hand, do the work, learn the life lessons, the love lessons, and share the wealth with others. Yet, dedicating ourselves to understanding and deepening the experience of love in our lives is a worthy and fulfilling goal.
The way bees make honey offers great insight into this seemingly impossible mission.
Gather nectar from all the flowers/ people and places you visit or whatever life presents to you. Go to your honeycomb/home and make honey with your family, friends, coworkers and those you meet on your daily rounds. When it’s ready, store it in your honeycomb ready to share with friends and strangers alike. It takes eight bees their entire lifetimes to make a teaspoon of honey. A sweet life’s work, if you make it yours.

What can we do in this month of love that pays significant homage to the mystery of Love?  In a world too often overwhelmingly full of violence, cruelty, hatred and destruction, how can we make a meaningful difference? In this month of love, we can choose to make it a habit to “make love/honey. Make like the bees and consciously dedicate ourselves to making honey and becoming the creators and distributors of love.

Have you got “Time Enough for Love?”
