In my copies at the secondary school, I wrote Others with one A capital letter to note the importance that the Other one always had in my heart….
Other front I.Other one, in my love for the Other one.
I read again what Jan Sefer wrote for me on a post, when I wrote that I felt ” the energy of the love “, this substance indéfinissable that I can feel to emanate from somebody (as one will have, but not really; difficult to describe something deep, a pure essence of the soul), a love stronger than all that we can feel as love: Jan wrote that the love has 3 types: Eros (associated in ” I ” ), Philos (associated to “us”) and Agapé (associated with “you”).
Agapé, the universal love in our heart (said Jan Sefer): yes, the real pure love, the one who is steered towards the other one and for the other one (in ” the oversight ” of one)
Yesterday, a mail meaning me a precision on certain papers (the Bible, etc.): “… God is Agapé ”
Thank for your words Jan , thank for your precision J.D.
My prayer: The way of its heart, for the love of the others, ” the energy of the love ” which is in each of us and which asks only to express itself …that God guides us towards this love, which is the road which leads towards the reception of St Esprit … it belongs in each of us, to us to cultivate it, to us to let it express himself, To us to maintain it, and to make it LIVE…
very touching… i didn’t know it was gonna end so sweet…
just a thought, in a lot of stories that i’ve heard, heaven always has a good disguise of being the unpleasant choice than hell… but in the end, heaven turns up to be the festive place for the good…=)
Rather then be led down the garden path, one more time, I’ll take option number one, please. I’d leave the animals behind, gladly, joyfully. I don’t need yours, and neither does another need mine. It’s like checking your guns in at the door.
I have often wondered at the verse, ‘Depart from me ye who work iniquity, I never knew you’. I asked myself, then how does he know whom to say depart to, and the man at the gate informs me. It made me laugh.
the moral as we were talking a while agao- love ur friend as u love urself! and yes in life we have friends and loved ones, but i believe that we have not too many real real good friends, my self i can count my tru friends less than 10,,,,, but i am reallllly happy with my friends,,, and i feel lucky that we r vvvery honest with each other,, and we would never abandone each other,,, so we in a way always take care of each other even though each of us has his – her own family,,,, so i feel here in heaven,,,, beeing lucky with those wonderful friendship!!!!
lots of love orly
Nice story. I had heard similar stories before…
Other front I.
Other one, in my love for the Other one.
My prayer: The way of its heart, for the love of the others, ” the energy of the love ” which is in each of us and which asks only to express itself …that God guides us towards this love, which is the road which leads towards the reception of St Esprit … it belongs in each of us, to us to cultivate it, to us to let it express himself,
To us to maintain it, and to make it LIVE…
A story after my own heart! Together, we are a family – a pack – and inseparable through all BUT death. We have had at least two major hurricanes hit this area over the past few years, and I am amazed at the many stories I hear of people, seemingly “stable” people, who either abandon their dogs prior to the hurricane, leaving them behind when they evacuate (often with no food or water or anyone to even check on them), or people who, upon return, when they learn that their homes have been destroyed and that they will have to move and rebuild, simply “surrender” their dogs to a shelter, where, in most cases, they are destined to be euthanized. This sort of treatment makes me think that people should have to have a license – should have to undergo psychological evaluation and background checks – before they are even allowed to own a dog. I can’t imagine leaving my dog behind in the event of a dire emergency! If it came to the point where that were the only option, I would simply stay with my dogs, and take my chances. Nor can I envision a catastrophe so complete as to cause me to give up the members of my family, and abandon them to fate. If I lost absolutely everything I owned in a hurricane or other natural disaster, the last thing I would want, on top of that, is to give up my dogs. In such a tragic situation, they would likely be my only source of comfort, as I could think to myself: “Well, at least we all made it out alive and well.”
My daughter has a book called “Dog Heaven.” Certainly, if I ever make it there, I should hope that my furry friends, one and all, will be waiting for me when I get there.
It is the lesson of altruism, responsibility and love.
The way to … Heaven.
I liked what you mention, dear Paulo Coelho, about those who are dead that they do no realize it and … continue perform things as when they were alive, within the restrictions of the material body of the three dimensional world.
Can I have some H2o please?
