If love is the “background reality” of the universe
Then everything else must be fantasy, dreams, or other mental images,
Especially if driven by ambition, desire for fame, or accumulation of power and riches.
If God is love,
Then traditional worship practices, systematic theology, and ancient church structures
Are just so much “straw” out in the fields of spiritual life –
In sum, since love is the only true reality
Why are we talking about anything else?
Of course, when we talk about love –
We’re talking about intelligent love
We’re talking about freedom as a pre-condition to love,
And we’re talking about three-dimensional love –
Not the paper version,
The last two have been going down my road but put forth in a way I never could. They are as near perfect as I can imagine. We don’t just deal with love because the world of making a living, etc. etc. intercedes. You provide a breath, a break in which to stop and get back to what is really important.
