During at least 15 years of my growth and development I kept a list of affirmations written on the back of my journal cover, on the inside cover to my address book, or other books. This list was also typed up on loose papers floating about my existence. I couldn’t escape not seeing them which was the very purpose of planting them in so many places.
Generally I spent 10-45 minutes reading them or reciting them EVERYDAY. I often rewrote them to be more specific for my lifestyle and relationships and development. My goals at that time:
To overcome the great negativity I had absorbed from my family and community growing up
To become the most perfect parent for Laurie that I could be
To be an ideal spiritual student
To realize my actualized self and become the light
My life was greatly changed and enhanced during that time. This process of repeating beautifully chosen affirmations was one of the ways I have added joy and beauty in my life. It aided my path as a Super-Ager. Plus—all I can say to you (and myself) is, “Be patient. God isn’t finished with me yet!”
I recommend creating your own list of affirmations—it would be beneficial if some were of love. Here are some suggestions.
I love the following quote by the Dalai Lama and he talks more of compassion than love. Here is a “love” quote from him:
“The more you are
motivated by Love,
The more Fearless & Free your action will be.”
You will find numerous slogans/affirmations of love in Chapter 11 of Catherine Ponder’s, The Dynamic Laws of Prosperity. The Chapter is entitled “The Prosperity Law of Love and Good Will.” She gives numerous examples of how and why her students and friends used different affirmations with surprising success in business, friendships, law suits, etc.
She ends the chapter with reminding us:
Jesus placed love first in importance—loving God and our neighbors as ourselves.
Paul ascribed all power to it. Corinthians 13: 13”And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.”

I know one of the masters just simply said: “Begin and End Each Day with Love” I couldn’t find it attributed to Meher Baba. Who knows the answer? Was it Sathya Sai Baba? Please share!
