It is safe space and kindness that lead us to honest and open reflection of our human condition and ultimately a way out of despair, anxiety and hopelessness. Not the space of conflict, argument and violent behavior.
Love works by attraction, not indictment.
It has always been this way. This safe space is only realized in the community of unconditional love, love of stranger, love of enemy, love of one another, the giving over of the ego to the Divine, which is always about redemption and good news for the poor, the outcast, the marginalized. Why? It is the law of love, the most powerful force in the universe, it is what holds us together, it is the only force that can undo and overcome the human will, that is why love, not behavior control, dominance or modification but love as in the definition has the power to bear, hope and endure all things:
-Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends- (from 1 Corinthians 13)
Love is a choice we must choose, or we will perish (this is not only my hope but it is my experience, it is real.)
