Love, which absolves no beloved one from loving, seized me so strongly with his charm that, as thou seest, it does not leave me yet.
When a person tells others Be good, he conveys to his hearers the feeling that he is good and they are not. When he says Be brave, honest and pure, he conveys to his hearers the feeling that the speaker himself is all that, while they are cowards, dishonest and unclean. 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. If, instead of seeing faults in others we look within ourselves we are loving God.
If the concept of God has any validity or any use, it can only be to make us larger, freer, and more loving. If God cannot do this, then it is time we got rid of Him.
The true measure of loving God is to love Him without measure.
I like to think (it has to be!) of a cybernetic ecology where we are free of our labors and joined back to nature, returned to our mammal brothers and sisters, and all watched over by machines of loving grace.
