The Lost Love in Religion is Man-made Corruption

07 Aug


“God respects me when I work
But he loves me when I sing.” — Rabindranath Tagore

Love me, my brothers, for I am infinitely superfluous, and your love shall be like His, born neither of your need nor of my deserving, but a plain bounty. Blessed be He.” — C.S. Lewis

“Bhakti, love of God, is the essence of all spiritual discipline … Through love one acquires renunciation and discrimination naturally.” — Ramakrishna

“Oh thou who art trying to learn the marvel of love from the copybook of reason, I am very much afraid that you will never really see the point.” — Hafiz

“To savour in our hearts in a certain manner and to endeavor to experience in our souls the power of the Divine Presence and the sweetness of heavenly glory, and this, not only after death but even in this mortal existence. This is most truly to drink of the gushing fount of the Joy of God.” — Institution of the First Monks

Love without attachment is light.” — N.O. Brown

“God alone is Real and the goal of life is to become united with Him through Love.” — Meher Baba

“If you have love you will do all things well.” — T. Merton

Love suffereth long, and is kind; love envieth not; love vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, does not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not its own, is not provoked, taketh not account of evil; rejoiceth not in unrighteousness, but rejoiceth with truth; beareth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Love never faileth.” — Paul of Tarsus

“A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move towards higher levels.”  — A. Einstein

LOVE in the World’s Great Religions:

Christianity: “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not, knoweth not God, for God is Love.”

Confucianism: “To love all men is the greatest benevolence.”

Buddhism: “Let a man cultivate towards the whole world a heart of Love.”

Hinduism: “One can best worship the Lord through Love.”

Islam: “Love is this, that thou shouldst account thyself very little and God very great.”

Taoism: “Heaven arms with Love those it would not see destroyed.”

Sikhism: “God will regenerate those in whose hearts there is Love.”

Judaism: “Thou shalt Love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and thy neighbor as thyself.”

Jainism: “The days are of most profit to him who acts in Love.”

Zoroastrianism: “Man is the beloved of the Lord and should Love him in return.”

Baha’i: “Love Me that I may love thee. If thou lovest Me not, My love can no wise reach thee.”

Shinto: “Love is the representative of the Lord.”


We can transcend the world of materialism and ascend the world of the spirit and love. With the body, decay and death are inevitable. With the spirit, we can become better people, expand the spiritual world, and find life, love and fulfilment that do not yield to death. Bathe in optimism. Eliminate the bad. Open yourself to the power of good. Feed the spirit.

We are all children of the same universe.
