Love

cropped-pinkkarylee.jpgLove…

Since the beginnings of history… traditions, rituals, superstitions and blind faith religions have served as human protections from what are perceived as overwhelming and omnipotent forces in nature.

Mysterious, powerful, dangerous and inexplicable events in peoples’ livesw, were often explained as the curious and inexplicable works of angry and unrelenting gods. 

Priests, preachers, rabbis, medicine men or shamans sometimes demanded rude and painful sacrifices. 

But history reveals that avoidable suffering is not redemptive.  Courage, commitment and community engagement have moved mountains.  Proactive love works.


Love is a weapon of Light, and it has the power to eradicate all forms of darkness. That is the key. When we offer love even to our enemies, we destroy their darkness and hatred…  What’s more, we cast out the darkness inside ourselves.”
― Yehuda Berg
