Love Is The Only Way
Did you, along with 2 billion other viewers, watch the royal wedding of Harry and Meghan, and listen to the sermon of Bishop Michael Curry? Like he said, "Love is the very fire and energy of real life!"
The cold-hearted, can only say negative things about it, because they're ruled by their instinctual nature and its characteristic pride, vanity, envy, lust, selfish ambition, desire for creature comforts and fear for survival, that feeds their mind with thoughts that have their Source In Negativity (SIN). But for those whose hope and faith is in true love, it filled them with inspiration and fired them up.
You can religiously read the Bible and fill the library of your mind (memory) with the scriptures (letter of the law) and recite them like a parrot, and understand all it's mysteries (or at least think you do), but unless your heart is filled with His divine nature of absolute true love, you have nothing and do not truly know God, but only what you've read about Him.
He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.1 John 4:8
God IS love and TRUE love is absolutely holy, peaceful, graceful and gracious, but in no way, is He religious.
Religion comes from those who are cold-hearted and don't know love (God), and the religions they create, are their way of trying to put God in a box and get their head around (understand) Him. But God IS love and nobody can fathom His endless depths, let alone, get their head around Him.
All we can do, is surrender to love and allow it to govern and dictate our every thought, word and deed, and be prepared to sacrifice everything for love. For God IS love and to live for God, is to live for love, with all your heart, mind, body and soul (absolutely), according to His true love's absolute holiness, peacefulness, gracefulness and graciousness, with absolute equanimity, humility and cooperativeness, without the slightest care in the world and like little children at heart, though far from childish.
If we all did that, then we would see heaven on earth, the ideal civilisation of absolute love and virtuousness, we were always meant to be. For love is the one and only meaning, and true way of life.
"We must discover the power of love, the redemptive power of love. And when we discover that, we will be able to make of this old world a new world. Love is the only way."Martin Luther King Jr.
Absolutely and unequivocally! Beyond the shadow of any doubt...
Though it's far easier said than done. For to truly and absolutely surrender to love, you must overcome the sinful, instinctual nature of the flesh and crucify its characteristic pride, vanity, envy, lust, selfish ambition, desire for creature comforts and fear for survival, that feeds the mind with sinful, negative thinking, that has absolutely nothing to do with love (God).
Let those who have the ears to hear and eyes to see, get the bigger picture...
Virtue of the Week
Characteristic of the lamb
Joyfulness is an inner sense of happiness, confidence and serenity. You appreciate the things that each day brings. Without joyfulness, when the fun stops, our happiness, confidence and serenity stops. Joy will carry you through the hard times and make the burden lighter. Joy gives us wings.
Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance.Psalm 89:15
