Not on their own, no....
BUT, God CAN and WILL put both the ability and the desire which is HIS love into the heart of a man - and that was the witness of Christ - the first
manifestation of true love that we were given....
And if we try (which is all we can do but we must TRY with sincerity)
then God will give the increase and will perfect our Love (by shaping
it into the form of His love)
at some point in time (which only He determines)
and truly - the point at which this happens is something
which is both known and understood in the soul's individual experience (which is available for all souls)
- and I think that THAT
the greatest miracle
in our present age - a personal miracle, but an astounding one, all the same. When God puts His heart and His spirit
(which is love and truth) into the heart of a man, then all things become apparent and that's when a soul realizes there is nothing other than
No other power, no rival, no alternative, no opponent, and above all, no chance of long-term resistance!
I find, looking back, that one of the best ways to try to 'love your neighbor as yourself'
is to cease all comparisons and judgments - in
other words, make your love impersonal; in the noblest sense of the word which doesn't mean the same as being without compassion. For it is only
without respect to personal situations, personalities, and shortcomings (or shiny parts)
that true compassion for one another can be
manifested. If we realize that none of us have any advantage over any other (and this includes not berating our own selves for our mistakes and
poor judgments and what we might consider character flaws)
then we might begin to realize that GOD made us ALL just as WE ARE and He does nothing
without perfect cause - and if HE loves us (AS WE ARE)
then why can't we love ourselves (AS WE ARE)
and each other, too (AS THEY
? When that becomes the mind-set then improvements will abound in all souls! First the love then the perfection....
Which comes first, Spiritual Power, Physical Power, Spiritual Love, or Physical Love, or are they one and the same?
Physical love surely comes first - in it's purest form it is the essence of the bond between mother and newborn child which causes the world to
continue underneath the feet of mankind....and also physical love leads to partnership and parenthood - which is also essential in the grand scheme of
BUT the best way to understand the power of man is to experience personal failure or disappointment to a degree which causes one to despise a personal
sense of human power...because the only power man has is that of his weakness - and it is within this weakness that God's power is manifested.
God bless and keep you, my dear friend GT!
