Love to YOU, from Fyodor

by Kathie MM

Love all God’s creation, both the whole and every grain of sand. Love every leaf, every ray of light. Love the animals, love the plants, love each separate thing. If thou love each thing thou wilt perceive the mystery of God in all; and when once thou perceive this, thou wilt thenceforward grow every day to a fuller understanding of it: until thou come at last to love the whole world with a love that will then be all-embracing and universal.”

From: Fyodor DostoyevskyThe Brothers Karamazov

And here is a p.s. to you from me:

Imagine yourself becoming this person.

Find more goodness by following this path.

Invite your friends along the way.

You could do a lot worse.

    After a stressful afternoon of Duplicate Bridge where partner and I came in a shameful next-to-last, I was not feeling love for each separate treacherous card – but Fyodor Dostoevevsky inspired me to reconsider. Outside, rain was pouring out of a gloomy, gray sky; inside, the room was a balmy 70 degrees. A friend, who was standing next to me as we looked at the scores, put an arm around me and gave me a comforting squeeze. Maybe I’ll take an abbreviated leave from D B and return with a refreshed heart and brain, the latter back on the job.

    Yes we could all do a lot worse, and one way to let things get worse is by ignoring this inspiring message.
    Love is so underrated, and sadly sometimes the word is ill used, but it IS important and powerful. “Love makes the world go ’round”.
