Love is not a matter of creation within ourselves but a condition that just is. It does not originate within the heart, mind, soul or body but rather is ours for the asking from the Universe.
Love knows only itself in the person who has trust and faith in themselves, and therefore, in others. Love knows no habit of condition or expectation for behaviour or response. True love does not ask another to bear what it cannot bear within itself. Love knows no lust, greed or avarice but instead gives from purity of motive and mind. Love asks only for faith and trust and with its every thought and action creates itself within itself. Love holds no mirror to another’s fault nor a light by which it may be viewed, instead it employs forgiveness as a way to increase itself and moves on past forgiveness to itself. Love condones no abuse of power or authority and seeks not to use such to gratify the carnal self, realizing that to do so is to transgress against one’s own nature of Divinity.
Love asks only to be true to itself, giving the first and the largest measure to the self in esteem and acceptance both of our human and Divine natures. It realizes the pull of humanity as no excuse for abuse of our God given powers with our fellow beings.
Love shares itself through service not for personal gain or glory but in an honest desire to know godliness in human form.
Love believes in its own power to right wrongs and forgives those thought to be sinful, and judges not. Love knows that the desire for goodness and its accomplishment are two different things but with trust and faith in the God-likeness of humanity, love would see itself within the crimes of the world if fear could be healed.
