Many Loves Synchronized

Everyone should love more than one object or idea—should, perhaps, have thousands of loves—each one different from the others, each one important to all the rest. A special love can grow deeper and more lasting if all one's other loves grow more spiritual and synchronize until love becomes the whole of one's life.

Our much-needed loves may include family and friends, strangers and nations, but far from stopping with people, they may also include nature and art, work, play, ideals, and, most of all, God, in whom all the others are really included.

God, divine Love, is the source of all real love. Our essential need is for a profound love of God, and yet often it is through human affections that we begin to feel the presence of the Christ, Truth, and of divine Love. John writes, "Every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God," I John 4:7, 20; and further along he says, "He that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?"
