Love

cropped-pinkkarylee.jpgLove…

Since the beginnings of history… traditions, rituals, superstitions and blind faith have been human protection from overwhelming forces in nature.

Mysterious, powerful, dangerous and inexplicable events were most often explained as works of angry gods.

Priests, preachers, rabbis and shamans demanded rude and painful sacrifices.

But history reveals avoidable suffering is not redemptive.  Courage, commitment and community engagement can move mountains.  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
