From the Editor

Many believe "Love” is an over-used word in our culture. I must agree, and confess that my own emphatic expressions of, "I love chocolate chip cookies!” or "I love this new computer!” are indeed overstatements and a misuse of the word.

The Inuit have over 30 words for "snow”, why is it that we have so few words to describe "love”?

Marianne Williamson, Deepak Chopra, Gary Zukav, Sri Nisargadatta, Mother Theresa and countless others have demonstrated, by their actions and the manner in which they live(d) their lives, what the truth of love is. That love IS… the force of creativity, the core essence of what and who we are… THAT which permeates all.

As Marianne Williamson states, "Only Love is real, all else is illusion.” And we are here to realign and act consciously from that reality. It is a path I struggle with, and work daily towards living in alignment.

We have a great issue that explores the different facets of love from various points of view. We also reveal the winners of the readership’s love story contest, plus the winner of the entry draw. Thank you to all who entered, and to the winners – enjoy your prizes.

Wishing you much love and happiness for 2007.
