Loving and Living

Our English word to love is related to the Teutonic word which means “to live.” Some old writings explore the idea that the two words are related because love is the dispenser of life. 

When we stop to think about it there are some profound thoughts behind that statement. Every life should begin from an act of love. The problem today is that many lives begin from an act of lust instead of love. After birth love should be the instruction for life, and when a child is born into such a home all sorts of goodness ensues.

However, not everyone has such a privilege. But by Living in Truth and promoting love, the pure love that is called charity, where ever we are and in whatever we are doing we nurture life. When we love and care for others we love and care for life itself.
