Love is the New Religion

Rose © Susan Slotter

Below are a few sections of Brian Piergrossi’s poem “Love is the New Religion” from his book The Big Glow. Of course, there is nothing new about love being “the way.” And it has taken humanity a long time to get to this  place of it becoming the priority in order to survive and thrive!

They say “the longest journey is from the head to the heart…”

On the surface of the world right now there is war and violence and things seem dark
But calmly and quietly, at the same time, something 
else is happening underground
An inner revolution is taking place and certain individuals 
are being called to a higher light
It is a silent revolution
From the inside out
From the ground up…

…We are slowly creating a new world with the
power of our minds and hearts…

…We are dropping soft, secret love bombs when no one is looking:
Kind words
Meditation and prayer
Social activism
Random acts of kindness

We each express ourselves in our own unique ways
with our own unique gifts and talents

‘Be the change you want to see in the world’
That is the motto that fills our hearts
We know it is the only way real transformation takes place
We know that quietly and humbly we have the power
of all the oceans combined…

Love is the new religion of the 21st century…

…All are welcome
The door is open
