Looking and longing for companionship?

Companionship is right here, right now, present, evident, manifest, revealed. I promise; I guarantee it; I warrantee it. Now, I realize that’s definitely a radical stand. You might be saying: “How is that possible? I’m certainly not seeing it in my life right now.” I can identify with that. I unquestionably needed a change of view of companionship, so I started with what the Bible tells us—that “God is love” (I John 4:16). If we learn that our very source is God, divine Love, then we can begin to understand that as God’s ideas, there is a spiritual basis to all relationships. Our one true relationship is to our Maker, our creator, God, divine Love itself, as God’s spiritual image and likeness.

God’s creation includes all right ideas, and all of God’s ideas are always in right relation to each other, harmoniously. And inspired relationships and interactions in our lives can come as a natural outcome of acknowledging and understanding our relationship to God and appreciating all that His creation includes. “All things work together for good to them that love God” (Romans 8:28). This points to God’s law of Love governing right, harmonious, beneficial relating.

Daily we can acknowledge this divine law governing right relating, and look for the expression of it in such everyday things as obeying traffic laws or simply being thoughtful and unselfish in holding the door for someone, or sharing a smile and a “hello” with complete strangers on the street. Because God is ever-present Love, the manifestation of Love’s loving must be present and evident in our experience. Any of us can begin to diligently persist in recognizing, acknowledging, and appreciating the consistent presence of the manifestation of Love, and in doing so, we can become more aware of love being expressed. I have proven this in my own experience, and you can too.
