Immediately after posting this observation on Facebook:
Trump shits in his hat and calls it curls — and America laps it up.
immediately thereafter I read:
Think too that all actions forthwith shall be of His standard and glory. All commerce and kindness shall be issued out from this being (your own) in the stature of Being, now given to His majesty. Every word now offered is in His Holiness. Every motivation and hope, every plan laid down and acted upon, every thing so imparted shall be dignified, as He does dignify and quicken all purpose and being.
All worldly decrees amount to nothing in comparison to the cordial truth known by Him. There is no law, no determination given by else, which is relevant; and His Way is best known by the man who will find Him through Love.
Goodness is not complete without Love. Laws are given to be empty of meaning, if practiced and upheld without love. Purpose shall be dead before begun. Death itself becomes the solitary gateway through to oblivion and desolation, if Love does not accompany the passing soul. Love is mandatory.
And what, where, is this Love? Why does such sweet completeness become so misunderstood and often denied? How can a man retract from his issue at all? It is because Love is too mighty to contain, or to issue, in knowing, in exceeding, in intensity. That which we find or manifest in love to our brothers is parallel to Christ, and it is terrifyingly powerful - it will take much a getting used to, and strengthening, little by little, that we may withstand the great surges.
