Loving is Understanding

" Loving is not just caring deeply, it is above all, understanding. " - Francoise Sagan.
To love someone deeply is to prioritize understanding and confront those things that are misunderstood with gentle honesty; to listen for deep truth so that you may share the perspective of the other, see the world as they do ... see the things they see ... Loving relationship is about seeing the Potential or ' Perfection ' in them , and by reflecting that vision back , encouraging them to be a better version of themselves.

Seeing "the potential/ perfection" in another is seeing Christ in them. It is this (Christ) awareness that allows us to realize we are the same -each one of us filled with the potential for...anything! Potential beyond what we can even imagine! We are images of God! Spirit beings incarnate. And in this identity, we are not only individual sons and daughters of God, but ONE collective humanity, We are ONE sacred and inclusive life creation, intimately connected, and  interdependent with, all of life to the farthest reaches of the cosmos. In Christianity, LOVE is the vehicle by which we know this truth and the means by which we live this truth. Love is the way, the truth, the life. LOVE WINS!

Jesus (LOVE) said to him, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes (to awareness of their image of God identity, to their own divinity which unites them with God [All Divinity]) to the Father except through me. John 14:6.

May understanding come to your heart today through love. May you know yourself as divine, united with all Divinity, for this is how we bring each other into Christ who lives in all. We are one. Today, follow Jesus. Be the loving way, the loving truth, the loving life. Be Love. It is who you are!

Lovingly, Peggy
