Love: I learn to deepen my ability to love when I learn to tolerate, accept, embrace, and forgive. I choose to employ these attributes to my spiritual walk, to my personal relationships, and to my world view.
If we are a spark of divinity, or as some would say, created in the image of The Divine, and if The Divine is Love, then somehow we must also be a spark of love, or created in the image of Love. Certainly the potential for love exists in all of us, so why isn’t love as predominate a driving force as it should be? Part of the blame probably goes to bad religion — religious belief systems that would have us believe their way is the only way and religious belief systems whose adherents are willing to die and kill for their beliefs.
How can love be evil? How can love war against other human beings in the name of religion? If we believe we are a spark of The Divine then we must return to the love that created us. Love is not conditioned by religious divisions, by religious nations claiming to be the only pure children of The Divine, or by elitists. When we return to Love, we will tolerate our divisions until we learn to accept our differences. When we learn to accept our differences we will learn to forgive our fellow men, fellow women, and ourselves for our closed-minded, religious bigotry. When we learn to forgive, we will be able to embrace those who we once thought were different from us. When we learn to embrace, we will experience unconditional Love.
