Love Your Neighbor. We are all One.

Spring is a time of renewal, a time to let go of the old and begin the new.

A friend recently used the word heresy in a sentence, causing me to ponder the word. I have concluded that it is a word in direct opposition to the peaceful way of living suggested in the words, "Love your neighbor as yourself".

The word "heresy" is used by one religion to condemn the doctrine of a other religion.

"Love your neighbor" crosses religious boundaries.

"Love yourself" comes first. One who accepts and appreciates the talents they have while appreciating (not envying) the talents of others is "loving onesself".

It is time to let go of the learned beliefs that create hostility, fear, and condemnation.

Love yourself.
Love your neighbor.
Love the land that feeds us.
Love the water that is our lifeblood.
Love the earthly home of our current existence.

We are all One.
