Blog Your Blessing : Love


I still believe that LOVE is the most durable power in the world.
Over the centuries men have sought to discover the highest good.

This has been the chief quest of ethical philosophy.
This was one of the big questions of Greek philosophy.
The Epicurean and the Stoics sought to answer it;
Plato and Aristotle sought to answer it.

What is the summon bonum of life?
I think I have an answer America.
I think I have discovered the highest good.
It is LOVE.

This principle stands at the center of the cosmos.

As John says, "God is love."
He who loves is a participant in the being of God.
He who hates does not know God.

This is wonderful. I will keep these lines in mind forever:

He who loves is a participant in the being of God./He who hates does not know God.

Truly inspiring. Love encompasses everything.

I could not agree more with the lines. Love is the greatest power on this planet and one that each one of us can wield easily if we choose to do so.

Have a great week ahead.
