“A loving person lives in a loving world. A hostile person lives in a hostile world. Everyone you meet is your mirror.” ~ Ken Keyes
Whether we accept it or not, whether we see it or not, whether we feel it or not, LOVE is everywhere. That on its own is the pure and simple truth. A truth that gives even a lonely heart much solace.
The theme on PositiveProvocations.com this month is LOVE, for not only is this the month of the prodigal Valentine but with the current world events flowing in the negative direction, I feel there is an immediate need to Amplify love in it. I want each and everyone of you to become ‘human love angels’, by the time this series ends. Hence, this series of articles.
To truly amplify love we must first honor its existence within us and around us. Not honoring love is like refusing to breathe while being surrounded by the purest oxygen. And, don’t we do that on a daily basis?
We refuse to go out of our comfort zone to lend a helping hand or a consoling ear. We refuse to do anything to honor the love we have been nurtured with. While love is the first emotion we feel when our soul comes into existence, we have become masters of crumbling every ‘love’ emotion in the name of trying to ‘fit in’ or do what is socially acceptable, even if it means crushing anothers heart.
How to honor LOVE?
Honoring love involves an intention to become more loving and then following up this intention with reinforcing actions. An intention involves a conscious decision. You make a new decision to be LOVE . . . and then accept personal responsibility to make life better, make this world better. It may take considerable effort to pry yourself out of the love-less life that you have grown used to, but it is entirely possible.
Below are some practical ideas of how you can begin Honoring LOVE:
- Acknowledge and verbally praise yourself and others.
- Be inclusive of everyone in the Fun you create for yourself.
- Learn new ways to relax and release your own tension and that of those around you.
- Think loving thoughts everyday.
- Instead of always focusing on a negative emotion, decide to focus on love instead.
- Try often to fill your life with beauty, such as times of silence, beautiful flowers. When you feel good, you make others feel good too.
- Acknowledge the efforts and successes of all those around you as often as you possibly can.
- Reward everyone you meet with a loving gesture- a smile, a consoling ear, a helping hand etc.
- Listen to your heart and then follow it especially when it comes to being more loving in the world.
- Let others succeed and celebrate their success much like your own.
- Offer all souls affection in many, many different ways. Let your heart guide you.
- Be grateful for the love you feel, share and receive everyday.
To honor love is to honor Divinity itself. Within this Divinity is the power to nurture and create miracles.
Today, make a commitment to yourself to truly honor LOVE.
Ask yourself, “How can I be more loving today?”
Use your imagination and come up with several possibilities. Then, follow through with your thoughts and put them into action. Do this every day, and watch as you begin to create the loving life you and the world truly deserves to live.
See then how powerful your LOVE can be…

Hi Zeenat, This is a wonderful reminder and perfect timing for me! I’ve been getting bogged down in my challenges. Time to lift myself up with love, intention, choices and action. Thanks You! Brad
You go on an BE awesome…and dont let those pesky negatives bog you down. You are stronger than that…Let your love guide you.
So glad this was a positive reminder to you.
Thank you for your lovely comment here.
I had heard love is like wind… it is interesting that you have equated it with ‘oxygen’ and truly so! Without love this life becomes so meaningless! This the first emotion that a child realises as his/her mother hugs and this is the only emotion that binds us with each other. Where there is no love, everything seems to like a long drawn out winter, devoid of sunshine that can truly touch you.
I honor love everyday by thanking God, who has given us loving people around us, by lending a helping hand to them, by listening patiently to an anguished friend or acquaintance, by offering solace and assuring better days are just ahead.
I honor love by taking care of all around me, respecting their feelings, giving them their space and just be with them when they need me. I honour love by reveling in the glory of the flowers, the rays of the sun and the moon…and all that lends beauty to my surroundings.
Thanks Zeenat for picking up this topic, there couldn’t have been a better time but love is much wider than just giving flowers to your valentine and dining with her/him.
Your comment reads like poetry here 🙂 Thank you for sharing so beautifully.
I LOVE how you honor love everyday. You are an inspiration…just keep being love.
And you said it darling, Valentine’s is not just about gifts and flowers…its about so much more…and that so much more is LOVE.
Thank you for your loving comment here.
How can I be more loving today? Wonderful question to ask Zeenat. Love elevates us all and our world. And I love this. 🙂
Love is the all time healer ….so glad you love this 🙂
And I also love love seeing your beautiful smile here.
I deeply value the simplicity of your guidance, dear Z. The only way I could usefully add to your list is my practice to try and forgive myself when I have been ignorant and unloving, and to forgive others who treat me with less love because they too are hurting. Forgiving creates more space for the love to flow!
So lovely to see you here after so long. And I completely ‘get’ your forgiveness practice. When we can forgive ourselves, we are letting go of a lot of negativity from within, thereby allowing for more healing and love to enter. It becomes easier to function from a loving center then.
You are an empathetic gem to try and understand/feel others feelings before your own.
Thank you for stopping by and for sharing…I always learn from you.
Yes, let’s all become human love angels! What a great post. I,m so excited to be involved in this.
Just for something different I will share some of my favourite prayers of wisdom and Love;
Beloved, let us love one another:
For love is of God.
And all who love are born of God,
And know God.
Those who love not, know not God;
for God is love.
None of us has seen God at any time
Yet, if we love one another,
God lives within us,
And love is perfected within us.
If you are a genuine human being,
Gamble everything for Love!
If you are not,
Then leave this gathering.
I haven’t always listened to God and at times I have not been
compassionate and loving. So thank you for this beautiful post and
it’s wonderful suggestions. It will help me to be a Better Person.
Yay! I’m so happy to have you on board! What fun to become love angels together 🙂
I love the prayers you shared….touched to the core. My heart thanks you.
Thank you for sharing so lovingly here Chris. I appreciate your presence and wisdom.
I love your thoughts Zeenat. I think the first step to improving and is acknowledging when we are being negative. I had a a great example for myself earlier this morning, when I had to run the kids to the bus stop for school in -0 weather Brrrrrrr. The negative thoughts where running wild then 😉 I caught myself though so I know it’s working. Thanks for your posts I truly enjoy them and can use their messages.
Catching those pesky negative thoughts in those crucial moments is what helps to be more positive and loving everyday. You are mastering it girl!
SO glad you are liking my little positively provocative messages 🙂
Thank you for your awesome comment here.
Zeenat, I’m so moved by your commitment to amplify love in the world. You are a beautiful soul! I’m with you 100%
Your 100% means the world to me! hank you!!
Since you are my partner in all things positively loving…I am going to email you with loving ideas sooooon 🙂
Reblogged this on .
Thank you for your support! 🙂
It was my pleasure.. 🙂
The more we love ourselves and can cultivate love from within Zeenat, the more love we have to share with the world. You, for example, are an ambassador for love 🙂
I completely agree with you here! The more we love ourselves the more we love everyone and everything around us.
And Gosh you are making me blush with that Ambassador of love compliment 🙂 Thank you!
Beautiful post, Zeenat.
Sharing my thoughts here. What a joy it was to see that I am already following all the pointers you mentioned here about honoring love. But there’s that one essential ingredient missing in my intention to amplify love – just as Vishnu rightly mentioned here – The more we love ourselves and can cultivate love from within, the more love we have to share with the world. That is the missing link for me.
Focusing on it now through some beautiful affirmations that I practice daily. I can feel a real difference once I set the intention in place to practice consciously. The result is that I am more peaceful than before from within and I flow fully into the present, instead of being stuck about the past or future. This marks a big change for me. And more importantly, I am working every day towards my affirmations in a mindful way. The more I began to do this, the more ‘open’ I feel about my endeavors in the present.
Thanks for this great post – your writings are truly inspiring, Zeenat.
I love reading your thoughts on Love, I’ve been immersed in Love in my own writing and pretty much everywhere I look this month. May the powerful beating heart of Love bless us all.
We’re coming up on the Full Moon in Leo on Friday, which is also Valentine’s Day. I am planning an afternoon of love bombing myself. To walk up to strangers and hand them flowers and a smile and a hug.
May your focus on the good, and mine, spread through the loving hearts of everyone whose lives we touch.
Love and more love!
