LOVE; Hope, Faith, Peace, Truth, Mercy, Charity, Grace ;LOVE
Love is simple and free, it can never be bound, it flows in an endless and bountiful
stream, from which all beings may quench their thirst.
These words are meant as signs along the way. Do not confuse what is said here for other Human Faculties, for we have a multiplicity of gifts to share with one another, companionship, reason, and other great mental faculties, but without the river of Love that runs through it, the ground of human nature becomes a parched and barren wasteland.
"Love one another".
So What exactly does this mean?
is the first component of love, for with hope all things become possible. Hope
is the seed of love and needs to be nurtured in order for love to germinate and
begin to grow.
Truth is the Strength of Justice, trust is the fruit of truth. Therefore trust in love and it will grow strong and true, for only in Truth can love grow free.
is the light of love for it shines forth its mercy upon the whole world.
If any one of these is lost, then it is not love that issues forth, for love is simple and free, it can never be chained or bound in any way, it is the measure of all things and yet itself is boundless and bountiful. All that is needed for love is an open heart, so that the seed of hope may be planted there.
A community built upon love treads a path that is no different than an individual who treads the same path.
Hope is the seed in which we place our faith. Hope for ourselves, hope for our children, hope for our neighbours and wider hope for the community in which we live. We hope that our children and further generations will benefit from our offerings to them. We hope that our friends and family will continue to have the love that we offer them, and we further hope that the world in which we live will continue to flourish and grow in love as we recognise the interconnectedness of our existence with this earth of our inheritance.
We step out then with the seed of hope in our hearts and take a leap of faith in ourselves, in our neighbours, in our community and in our world, and with hope and faith in our hearts, can change the course on which we are set to a new path in which peace and prosperity is the inheritance we offer our children, not war, famine, and isolationist destruction, the gifts of our present regime.
Only in peace can we hope to find the answers to our current crisis, for peace allows us to trust in truth, the truth of the horror that we have created, without fear of reprisal or violent recrimination. Peace then for ourselves, our children, our community and our world.
Temper justice with kindness and mercy so that love can be seen to shine forth, for who is perfect among us! We all make mistakes along the way and all need the strength to air our faults so that we can free our hearts from the chains that bind, in this way love can continue to grow and will not wither in the darkness of fear, but blossom in the light of merciful kindness.
Charity is the blossoming of that mercy, the fruit of love that is to be shared by all who would receive it, we all have different gifts that we can offer others, a multiplicity of various natural talents that make up a greater whole, these are a well spring from which the needy may draw the water of love, pool your talents then so that collectively you may touch the stars, but do it freely, for love can not grow in the air of greed, It will wither and die before your eyes as desire takes hold of your heart.
you give so shall you receive, this is the grace of love. Learn that with an open
heart you may receive freely as you also have given, as we are all one, this is
as much a part of love as any other, and if you have given freely of yourself
and your natural talents, then accept the love that is offered you in return,
extension of love as read above is not just an individual and social reality.
It is also a global reality. Humanity must extend to nature the same love that
it affords itself, in exactly the same manner, for we are all in a state of nature
at all times, everywhere.
Hope is the starting point from which we can change this catastrophe before us, for with hope in our hearts and hope in our community we can have hope in the earth that with our help she may begin to heal herself. It is not yet hopeless, but will soon be so if we do not act soon. Have faith then that we may love the earth of which we are a part, just as we are a part of a wider community and must have faith in it in order to grow in love, and just as we must have faith in ourselves so that we can grow personally in love and take effective and creative measures so as to grow in love. We must make our peace with the earth then and live in peace with her, for in peace we can find the strength to avert the coming catastrophe.
is the cessation and negation of war, and so we must simply stop 'all' activities
that are harmful or potentially harmful to the earth. Just stop if you are employed
in an activity that supports a war effort against the earth then just simply cease!
to act against her. No violent uprising is required, merely the immediate and
unqualified cessation of all activities that rally against the earth, in favour
of activities that bring forth creative and dynamic associations with our environment.
Love can never grow in such ways for violence begets violence, and where violence is used for change truth can never prosper. For who would confess a sin, or a crime, if they lived in fear of being subjected to the same violence that was supposed to set them free, thus love would be lost and the same regime would take charge as before, no trust can be placed in such means.
Truth can only flourish if peace is your calling card. Truth is the strength of justice, trust is the fruit of truth. For in truth our hearts are unchained and love becomes boundless. Listen to your heart and trust what you hear, for it will tell you what lies you hold onto, let them go and release yourself from bondage, for love cannot stay bound. Love is free, so too should your heart be. Where truth is lost, so too is love.
the earth the same truth that you offer yourselves and one another and you will
know love for her and she will grow in love with you. The earth can no longer
live with the lies we perpetuate, the truth of our greed and avarice is hidden
by those who cannot face their own hearts. We can no longer allow these liars
to hold the reins of power, and if we do we ourselves are guilty of the same murder
they commit. By allowing them to kill our inheritance we are as guilty as if we
had pulled the trigger ourselves, so don't hide behind your apathy as it is like
agreeing with them. Remember we are all one and never forget that what you do
or allow to be done to the planet you also do to yourselves.
great chain of being is only as strong as its weakest link. It is time that humanity
grew into its adulthood and recognised the responsibility with which it has been
afforded. We are the gardeners of prosperity and the earth is our garden, and
we are part of that garden. If we kill everything in the garden then we too will
surely perish. The choice is yours!
Yet if love is your guide then harmony and union are your rewards. Let mercy be your gift to the earth, as you would wish others to be merciful to you, and allow mercy and kindness to purvey your heart, so that they may shine upon all that would receive them.
is an understanding that the truth of love is universal within all hearts and
we are all thus of the same kind.
this awareness is present the extension of that kindness and mercy is brought
to fruition through charitable works, for charity is the fruit of love. Give,
give, and give again freely of yourself and your natural gifts so that others
can benefit from the love that flows through you.
All you must do is open your hearts to the possibility and the world will come alive for you and you will know love for her and will no longer war against what you conceive to be a lifeless thing with your hardened hearts, yield and your eyes will open, learn the hidden language of love within your hearts and you will hear her speak to you in love, for it is the language of life itself.
Be charitable with what you have for each of God's creations is a pointed perspective, unique and unrepeatable, be charitable with others for we all have our own special story to tell if only we would take the time to tell it, and we all have something to give if only we would give it, but do it freely, for love cannot prosper where desire abides. Be charitable but do it freely, for true charity wants nothing but to give, give, and give some more until love flows through every being. Famine would be impossible if love ruled.
Make a choice for the choice is yours here and now, let love rule and embrace life, or do nothing and allow the hard of heart to rule, and consign yourselves, and the Earth to death.
is the natural culmination of life lived in love. As you are charitable with yourself,
others and all around you have the grace that forms naturally around love to receive
that love back, freely. True love allows others to grace us with their gifts freely
and does not place restrictions upon the quality or quantity of there love, as
this would be a false judgement, built around a desire that would stifle and bind
love to a persons narrow concept of love. Listen then to your heart and do not
let pride stop you from receiving love graciously, as gifts given in love should
be received in love, have the grace then to receive them graciously so that love
can be seen to be mutually inclusive, and thus will arouse new hope for a new
Remember always that we all live by the grace of God and this gift is given freely. Learn to accept the gift that has been given to you by God freely, so that you may again love yourselves, one another, the Earth and the entire creative process of which you are a part.
May God smile upon you always, in all ways, and may love grow to greater and greater heights within your hearts. Have hope, take faith, go in peace, walk with Truth, show all mercy, give all charity, live in grace, and you will always know Love.
