The Garden of Love – Day Fifty of #LoveLand101

#LoveLand101There is a garden growing and flourishing brilliantly within the ground of your being utilizing divine intelligence symbiotically blossoming in service to the highest expression of who you are.  This garden is nourished by Love.

In the preface to Emanuel Swedenborg’s Divine Love and Wisdom the Latin Translator of the text talks about the sketch of a Roman Garden that adorned the title page of each of Swedenborg’s books under the phrase Cura Et Labore “with care and work.” The image of a beautiful garden with a cherub like Angel watering the plants tending to the well loved garden’s growth and harmony strikes to the core of any process.


It is a reminder of the wisdom and grace that exists when discipline is applied to commitment in realizing the fruits of our labor. It represents the opportunity for us to make manifest the joys of a life fully lived in divine Love. When we enrich each moment with care and work, making conscious choices. Free of the energies that keep us bound. We allow nature to take its course in harmony without calling out the struggle, we effortlessly step into the full beauty of existence.

Move into the garden of your being remembering everything is as it is. You are exactly where you are supposed to be and you know absolutely how to tend to your needs.



My hearts been broken in so many different ways there remains only the ache of love.

Today is the day to remember to tend to your garden.  Make this the eve of something magnificent allowing your light to burst forth into a new consciousness, tender and joy filled, complete and healed and whole!


lots of Love,



PS.  As an aside, in researching the Garden of Love, I came upon two pieces I was before today, unfamiliar with.  The Garden of Love is a poem about sexuality written by William Blake and the US Post Office commissioned a stamp series of the same title.


Everyone Loves Love — even the US Post Office.

Here’s what the USPS site says about these love stamps:

“Working with art director Derry Noyes, award-winning illustrator José Ortega created an abstract garden of bright flowers, a butterfly, a strawberry, and doves, interlaced with vines that run from one stamp to another. Each prominent element of the design is in the shape of a heart. The deep blue background is reminiscent of a brilliant summer sky. The word “Love” sits atop each stamp.

Ortega said, “Garden of Love depicts the abundance of life, its generosity, whose spirit is to be shared by all its creatures. Love’s definition is broader than romantic love. Love is that colorful, full feeling you get when you enjoy being a part of and sharing in the generosity of life.”
