  •  'Love' is possible only when we wake up (1+ / 0-)

    ...to the unknown and unknowable. We fear what we cannot see, touch, smell, hear and taste. What is infinitely different from us scares us thus we try to assimilate it into what we know. That's why pizza and Chinese food had to be Americanized for us to be acceptable. Our religions too are assimilations.

    Beyond all, there is 'faith' in the unknown and unassimilated. That has no name, color, shape, and cannot be defined in form or non form. There resides 'Love' and there resides peace and freedom.

    We cannot find it in the 'known' and the 'familiar.' That's death. We love death and fear the living because what is alive is always fresh and new meaning unknowable and natural. Nature itself is an expression of this 'Love' except where human hand defiles it with death, like plastic and nuclear waste that does not move or change. Like toxic spew.

    Thanks for reading.
