Love is an obligation – that’s what we owe each other. The best way to live is to love and the best way to die is to hate.
Love is immeasurable. It’s vaster than the universe and deeper than the bottomless pit. There is no limit to the number of people we can love at a time.
What limits our ability to love is hate. When hate lords over us, we become different. We become vicious.
When we hate others, we hate ourselves – we destroy ourselves.
Each time we hate, something dies in us. First, love and peace. If we keep hating, some other things die – joy and happiness. Finally, we die. Hate makes us hollow on the inside, eaten up by a burning and perpetual hatred.
This burning hate makes us deadly. We become aggressive, fight and kill each other. We do not fight because we disagree, we fight because we hate each other. We make sophisticated guns and weapons of mass destruction (products of a hateful mind) to destroy one another.
Love is a powerful weapon against hate.
With love, we can conquer hate. We dwell together in harmony. We overlook wrongs and forgive one another. We feel empathy and show compassion. We care for each other and share what we have with one another. We seek for each other’s good. In loving we make a heaven for each other.
When we feel hate, such thing as simple as a natural and a loving smile at the ones we hate mght help us suppress and overcome the hate we feel for them.
Love is life.
We need to love to live. So we chose to love.
May we find love as we make loving others an obligation.❤️
Have a blessed week ahead!
