Too often, our results-oriented mood spills over into our spiritual practices. We want to get as much as possible, as quickly as possible, from as little commitment as possible. But purifying the soul of greed, anger, envy and pride has to take its own sweet time.
Animals live and care for each other as much as humans do... How is it that we can be so callous towards these creatures of God?
Our desire to love and be loved comes from God. For the most part, no one wants to be alone, at least not permanently. The thing everyone is chasing after is love. We all want to know that there are people out there that love us.
