Civilization 101: How to Love God

“To love God in the most practical way is to love our fellow beings. If we feel for others in the same way as we feel for our own dear ones, we love God.

“If, instead of seeing faults in others, we look within ourselves, we are loving God.

“If, instead of robbing others to help ourselves, we rob ourselves to help others, we are loving God.

“If we suffer in the sufferings of others and feel happy in the happiness of others, we are loving God.

“If, instead of worrying over our own misfortunes, we think ourselves more fortunate than many many others, we are loving God.

“If we understand and feel that the greatest act of devotion and worship to God is not to hurt or harm any of His beings, we are loving God.

“To love God as He ought to be loved, we must live for God and die for God, knowing that the goal of life is to love God, and find Him as our own self.” — Meher Baba

Greed and Selfishness

Who is Saint Gregory?

Saint Gregory

It is by no means enough not to steal the property of others; you are in error if you keep to yourself the wealth which God has created for all. He who does not give to others what he possesses is a murderer, a killer; when he keeps for his own use what would provide for the poor, one can say that he is slaying all those who could have lived from his plenty; when we share with those who are suffering, we do not give what belongs to us, but what belongs to them. This is not an act of pity, but the payment of a debt. — Pope Gregory the Great (6th Century)

The First Peace

peace

“The second peace is that which is made between two individuals, and the third is that which is made between two nations. But above all you should understand that there can never be peace between nations until there is known that true peace, which, as I have often said, is within the souls of men.” — Black Elk

Make Me a Channel of Your Peace

st-francis

Often attributed to the 13th-century saint Francis of Assisi, the prayer in its present form cannot be traced back further than 1912, when it was printed in Paris in French, in a small spiritual magazine called La Clochette (The Little Bell), published by La Ligue de la Sainte-Messe (The League of the Holy Mass). The author’s name was not given, although it may have been the founder of La Ligue, Fr. Esther Bouquerel.
