“What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has the eyes to see the misery and want. it has the eyes to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.” Augustine of Hippo
Love is more than a kiss. Love is more than you. Love is more than just buying material things to make people happy. Love is real. Love is caring. When you are in love, when you love your fellow brothers and sisters, you love God. When you help others, you help yourself. When you love other people, you love yourself. Because love is not greedy. Love is sharing.
Love is God. And God is love. And to love God is to love yourself, is to love your fellow beings. If you love God and you do not love your fellow beings, that is not loving God. It is something else. It is not loving God. Because to love God is love our fellow beings. It is to love ourselves. Meher Baba said, “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.” Do not pretend to love God. He knows everything. He sees everything. There is no need to pretend to be who you are not. If you love God, you don’t need to pretend to love other people. Because that is who God really is- LOVE!
