Thank you on their behalf.
Yes, sincere appreciation for your message that is inspired by the Spirit of love that lives in you. May I lose none of His gifts and may He obtain for me the grace of unwrapping them with all the love He keeps filling me with. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle… Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality. Bless your enemies; no cursing under your breath. Let us ask Him to lead us to places where He wants us to shine His light and ask Him for the courage and strength to share His love with all who surround us in our daily lives.
And, maybe when we do this, we will guide people to His beauty and they, too, will begin to actively love others and then, who knows how many lives will be impacted?

Close Menu. All great religious teachers have recognized that we human beings do not naturally see; we have to be taught how to see.
Religion is meant to teach us how to see and be present to reality. Prayer is not primarily saying words or thinking thoughts.
It is, rather, a stance. All spiritual disciplines have one purpose: to get rid of illusions so we can be present. These disciplines exist so that we can see what is, see who we are, and see what is happening.
What is is love. It is God, who is love, giving away God every moment as the reality of our life. What is happening is God living in us, with us, and through us as love. Need assistance with this form?
