Where there is love, there is life
The truth is that where there is love, there is life. Love is the power of the Universe, and everything is alive through an inexplicable power that could be called, ultimately, love.
Feeling love and sending love toward situations, objects and all living things including plants, animals and humans, opens up space for growth and change of all kinds. And those are definite signs of life.
Where there is poverty, there is crime
If the misery of our poor be caused not by the laws of nature, but by our institutions, great is our sin. ~ Charles Darwin
To a man with an empty stomach food is God. ~ Gandhi
Men pray to the Almighty to relieve poverty. But poverty comes not from God’s laws—it is blasphemy of the worst kind to say that; it comes from man’s injustice to his fellows. Supposing the Almighty were to hear the prayer, how could He carry out the request so long as His laws are what they are?
The Almighty gives us nothing of the things that constitute wealth; He merely gives us the raw material, which must be utilized by man to produce wealth. Does He not give us enough of that now?
