There is a desire within each of us, in the deep center of
ourselves that we call our heart. We were born with it, it is never completely
satisfied, and it never dies. We are often unaware of it, but it is always
awake. It is the human desire for love. Every person in this earth yearns to
love, to be loved, to know love. Our true identity, our reason for being, is to
be found in this desire…
Love is the ‘why’ of life: why we are functioning at all,
what we want to be efficient for… I am convinced it [love] is the fundamental
energy of the human spirit, the fuel on which we run, the wellspring of our
vitality. And grace, which is the flowing, creative activity of love itself, is
what makes all goodness possible.
Love should come first; it should be the beginning of and
the reason for everything.
