Love is honest, compassionate and caring. How that translates in my case, is that, because of the honesty, I frequently end up telling people things they don’t want to hear, things that make them a bit uncomfortable. I do so out of a sincere wish and commitment to help them, spiritually and emotionally. For example, I might point out how fear and materialism are driving their thoughts and actions, or I might suggest that they stop being so active and meditate more. I only do that if they ask, if not, it is not my business. Of course, I also make it clear, through word and action, that I honor, love and respect them.

I took Maria, my wife, to the airport this morning. She will be back east visiting family for a little over two weeks. Her absence puts me in mind of the many things that I cannot physically do, things that I depend on her for. My disability results in not being able to perform any detailed manual dexterity, doing things very slowly and not having the coordination to even climb a ladder. It makes my life much easier if I simply accept (not like!) my limitations and act accordingly. It is also important for me to accept that I have several unique gifts like the healing touch or strong intuitive abilities that I use daily.

As I commented yesterday, I recently wrote, and am in the process of getting published, a little book on the three questions. The book is part of my effort to change the world away from a belief in violence and materialism, toward a belief and behaviors reflecting the realities of love, connection, inclusiveness, peace and protection for the earth. The book contains a good deal of self-disclosure and also a goodly number of tips or suggestions that advance the importance of love, connection, inclusiveness, peace and protection for the earth. I was the one who wrote the book, but most of the ideas expressed in it come from the Absolute, not me.

I recently wrote, and am in the process of getting published, a little book on the three questions (Would I do this in front of God?; Is it really my responsibility?; Will this increase the integrity of the universe). I am well aware that some people will use my words to justify selfish or self-centered behavior, claiming their behavior to be loving. On the one hand, I wish it were different and on the other hand, I recognize the situation as perfect, a lesson from the Absolute.
Everything is as it should be.
Everything is as it should be.

I choose to be non-political, not out of any sort of apathy, since I am passionate concerning issues like human welfare, respect, education and care for the environment. I will continue to do everything I can to support those issues and others that reflect love, connection, inclusiveness, peace and protection for the earth. The fact is that the current political system is largely based on capitalism and that efforts to change within that system get overpowered by financial concerns or influences. The thought that always occurs to me is that “we put the wrong people in charge”. I do and will support any changes that reflect love, connection, inclusiveness, peace and protection for the earth.

I find the rules, regulations and duties that are often associated with various religions to be a mixture of amusing, endearing and disturbing. My understanding and connection tells me that God is the source of the Absolute of love, where things like the rules, regulations and duties do not even exist. Having connected with that power/force, I now choose to act according to love, not because of external rules or regulations, but because of my internal compass and total devotion. I gather that the rules, regulations and duties are frequently important in leading many people to that force/power/reality. However, rules, regulations and duties are human, while love is God.
