You're a natural-born lover, as you know. In fact, I'm sure you've noticed that when you are unloving, you don't feel good about it. You feel bad. That's because it's true -- you were born to love.

For any child of God -- the God of whom it is rightly said, "God is love" -- it is untrue not to love. It's incompatible with who you are. That's why anything you think or do that deviates from love grates against your soul.

Love is the truth of life, in that you naturally love your brothers and sisters in the human family. Each person is your beloved, your kin in the family of God -- your very own self.

Unlove is a lie that's challenged by the connectedness of life, the natural affinity of one for all. Thus, unlove can't be true for you, of you. Neither can indifference. You're never really indifferent. Indifference is simply a denial of your actual care and feelingness. Love is what's true.

There is a bumper sticker that says, "The more I know about people, the more I love my cat." Closer to the truth is this: "The more I misunderstand people and myself, the less I love people." When you see the truth, the reality, of anyone, you will surely love what you see. If you see a person's real self, or the true beauty of God, or life, or anything, you love it naturally.

"To know, know, know you
is to love, love, love you,
and I do, yes I do."

Indeed! Love is the truth, and the truth is lovable!

Such is the connection between Love and Truth.
