POWER UP #2: LOVE!
Scripture: John 17:23 “I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one…”
Goal: Build a bridge of love from where you are to a deeper place in God.
- Pier 1: Interest — Give your interest to God and to finding God in our world.
- Pier 2: Acquaintance — Let your increased interest lead to a deeper search for personal knowledge of Spirit through prayer.
- Pier 3: Affection — Affection is the budding idea of love that survives closer acquaintance.
- Pier 4: Attraction — The love power functions like a magnet, drawing us deeper and ever deeper into the mysterious activity of love.
- Pier 5: Love — We are so in tune with love that we see good everywhere, even in appearances which seem to deny it.
- Pier 6: Identification — We feel ourselves a part of God.
- Pier 7: At-one-ment — We feel ourselves merge into the Great All. We move from having and doing to simply being.

Each day this week, spend at least 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes in the evening concentrating on one of the piers of Love. Use the daily affirmation below during your meditation time and focus your attention on the Love center in your body.
Love is the pure essence of Being that binds together the whole human family. It is an inner quality that sees good everywhere and in everybody. It insists that all is good, and by refusing to see anything but good it causes that quality to finally appear uppermost in itself, and in all things (p. 61, 63).
