When we have love for all,
we are in tune with God.
When we have anger, animosity, hatred, and prejudice
against any person or group of people,
the mind will use that to keep us from God.
It will occupy our thoughts with more and more reasons
for hating someone else or a group of people.
It will lead us into thoughts, words, and deeds
that keep us from having stillness of mind.
When we do not love someone or a group of people,
whether because they have a different nationality,
religion, skin color, or economic status,
it means that the mind has won over the soul.
The mind will keep us engaged in constant distraction
due to our negative and unloving
thoughts, words and deeds to others.
We can overcome this tendency by realizing
that we are all children of one Creator.
If we realize the same Light of God that is in us
is also in every living creature,
then our mind will be stilled.
We will live each day in the spirt of love and harmony.
The state of love is the state of allowing God
to flow through us.
The more time we spend in a state of loving all,
the more easily we can meditate with a still mind
and peaceful heart and we can then
contact God within us.
