As we continue to celebrate the month of love, I offer parallel scriptures on love from four of the major religious traditions to help remind all of us just how connected we are.
As you consider each one, bring to mind your vision for your relationships and continue to ask yourself, “Who am I being as the man or woman with deep loving relationships?”
From the Christian tradition, “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me…what you did to one of the least of these, my brethren, you did also to me.” The Gospel of Matthew
From the Bhagavad Gita, “With one’s heart centered by Yoga, calm and passive everywhere, the Yogi sees the Self in all being, and all being in the Self.”
From the Buddha, “With generosity and kind words, always doing to other what is good, he treats all people as the same. His compassion for the world is like the hub that makes the wheel turn around.” Anguttara Nikyaya
From Proverbs 10:12, “Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.”
Think about how you can apply these teachings to your relationships. What does it look like to be the person living from Universal Truth? Share your observations and applications in the comment section on my Facebook page to inspire all of us.
