“Real love doesn’t deceive nor does it allow itself to be deceived. Where there is selfishness, there is no love. We need to understand what real love is. When there is experience of God’s love, that, removes all sorrow. Human love today is often connected with attachment.
Someone gives a little love, and the other becomes crazy about them……. I don’t want love that is going to give me happiness only sometimes. True love gives p3eace and happiness and makes the heart feel constantly full. So we need to ask our hearts, ‘Do I experience true and honest love? Do I have that type of love within?’ With true love there won’t be any wrong actions performed, because the intellect that is filled with love guides the soul in the direction of truth. Jesus is the truth He is the way He is the life
May this celebration with one another be the start of Sharing with one another.
