LOVE, if God is Love—then
Love is God. But God is univers
al and all in all, Then love too is
the same and has varied aspects
and degrees, reflected in justice,
mercy, sympathy, pity.
Individual or human love cannot
be forced, and you are not requir
ed to love anybody personally,
but through your universal love of j
humanity you must strive to be
the means of their development
and they yours, when the love of
God fills our hearts it reflects
from us upon all. Man is the
only channel for the love of God.
‘‘Love is the source of all the be
stowals of God. Until love tak-s
possession of the heart no other
divino bounty can be revaled in
Lovo and its works proceed from
God. His Love cannot penetrate
our hearts if they are unloving.
Wo must learn to love God thru
the magnet of God’s love and ex
ercise of our own will. Thus do
wo attain nearness to God. It is
not easy to attain. But by sever
ance or lack of attaehm-r.t to all
save God, which does not mean
that we are not to develop and
enjoy material things—but we are
to keep them servants and not
masters. When we reach spirit
ual maturity we need wealth here
to fulfill our spiritual desire for
the good of all.
“Yo are the fruits of my gard-J
en; ye must bear fresh and beau.;
til'ul fruit that ye and others may
be profited by them. Therefore
it is necessary for you to engage |
in arts and business. This is the!
means of attaining wealth, O ye
possessors of intellect. Fruitless

be only for fire.
